Dems replace POW/MIA flags with transgender pride flags to protest Trump military ban

By Bradford Betz | Fox News

Multiple Democratic lawmakers this week replaced POW/MIA flags outside their Capitol Hill offices with a Transgender Equality flag to commemorate “Trans Visibility Week,” photos show.

The move reportedly came at the behest of the “National Center for Transgender Equality.” The group tweeted Tuesday that it had delivered the flags to every member of Congress – even Republicans – with the request that they be flown outside their offices.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., tweeted a photo of his office with the transgender flag displayed, writing: “Discrimination has no place in our society. I am proud to display this flag as a symbol of my support for transgender people across the country. We must stand with transgender people in all of our community.”

I am proud to display this flag as a symbol of my support for transgender people across the country. We must stand with transgender people in all of our community.”

Rep. Kim Schrier, D-Wash., was among multiple Democratic lawmakers whose office was pictured this week with the transgender pride flag in lieu of the POW/MIA flag.

“As a proud member of the @LGBTEqCaucus,” Schrier tweeted late Wednesday morning, “I will do everything I can to make sure transgender people #WontBeErased by violence, fear or prejudice. I am committed to safety and equality for all. #TransVisibilityWeek”

A report from the Washington Free Beacon included a photo shot outside Schrier’s office in January with the POW/MIA flag displayed. Her office has reportedly informed the Free Beacon that the switch is only temporary.

Some Democrats, like Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., displayed the transgender pride flag alongside the POW/MIA flag.

The displays coincide with the House’s rebuke on Thursday to President Trump’s move to ban transgender people from serving in the military. A non-binding resolution opposing the ban passed 238-185, nearly along party lines. Only five Republicans sided with the Democrats to vote in the ban’s favor.

The Trump administration’s policy bars people who have undergone gender transition from enlisting and requires military personnel to serve as their biological gender.

Rep. Joe Kennedy, D-Mass., said the policy amounted to “targeted discrimination.” Armed Services Chair Adam Smith, D-Wash., said the Trump policy is “primarily based on ignorance and bias against the transgender community.”

Speaking from the floor in support of the resolution, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had also placed a transgender pride flag outside her office, said: “There is no moral justification for this ban which violates every value of our American democracy.”
