Flagged for Hate Speech

Otherwise, to read my introduction… 

Designed in 1978 by San Francisco resident and artist Gilbert Baker, the LGBT Flag, (also called the “Rainbow” or “Pride” flag) with it’s eight stripes of different colors, each having its’ own meaning, has been a symbol of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community for decades.

Well, it seems after about 40 years everyone who isn’t heterosexual wants to get on the LGBT bandwagon, prompting Portland, Oregon-based designer Daniel Quasar to propose an update to the iconic rainbow flag.

His new, more “inclusive” flag, designed to represent the now-expanded LGBTTQQIAAP Community (that would be the “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Ally, and Pansexual” community) uses less horizontal stripes (6 instead of 8) but adds 4 additional angled stripes and a triangle. And, once again, every part of the flag has it’s own meaning: The black and brown chevrons represent the black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) group while the blue and pink chevrons and white triangle represent the male, female, and transition genders of the transgender community.

Whether it’s an improvement or not is up to the eye of the beholder: Some have even labeled this new cultural symbol “a design disaster“.

More unfortunate, and perhaps tragically ironic, if you arrange four of the flags just right they’ll create a reprehensible, evil, hate-filled iconic symbol used by a dictatorial, “People’s Democratic”, Socialist country whose quest to create a “New World Order” included the destruction of groups its’ leader didn’t like, including those practicing “alternate lifestyles“.

See if you can the hidden symbol in the new LGBTQQIAAP Flag:

I suspect Daniel Quasar may not have intended this interpretation of the alternate lifestyle community’s iconic symbol, but as sci-fi romance author Cynthia A. Wolf once wrote:

“What has been seen cannot be unseen…”

The implied symbolism is disturbingly unfortunate, and especially so from Progressive Democrats known for enabling Antifa, supporting the violence and destruction of the BLM riots, using “identity politics” to divide the population into convenient labels, and practicing character assassination of their opponents through innuendo, labeling, and trial-by-public-opinion.

Frankly, I prefer the secret symbolism of America’s Dollar Bill, the “sacred design” of Washington, D.C., the original Proctor & Gamble logo, or perhaps the location of the DNC’s 2012 National Convention.

Thanks for Reading!
