More than 660,000 white flags have been displayed in a solemn tribute across a vast expanse on the National Mall in Washington, DC — each representing a life lost to the coronavirus pandemic in a heart-rending exhibit called “In America: Remember.” The 20-acre installation — which was unveiled Friday near the Washington Monument — is the second chilling exhibit that artist Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg said is based on a project trying to capture the “human dignity” behind the staggering death toll. As of Friday, 670,034 deaths — one of every 500 Americans — have been recorded in the US and...

An ESPN sportswriter has declared on live TV that seeing the American flag being waved at the Tokyo Olympics symbolizes the "rise of white supremacy." Speaking during an appearance on CBS on Monday, Bill Rhoden said people waving Old Glory at the Games in Japan reminds him of the January 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.

White flags could be seen flying outside homes and poverty relief organisations across Malaysia this past week as citizens cried out for food and other assistance amid the country's latest Covid-19 lockdown. The surreal scenes, reminiscent of similar protests that swept the South American nations of Guatemala and El Salvador last year, emerged from a grass-roots social media campaign centred on the #benderaputih (white flag) hashtag that began trending on Monday. Community organisers told This Week in Asia the campaign was the clearest sign yet of the economic despair that hundreds of thousands of Malaysia's lower-income families have experienced amid...

ABC News legal analyst and co-host of “The View” Sunny Hostin agreed with New York Times columnist Mara Gay that the combination of Trump flags and American flags was a threatening “message of white supremacy.” In a video Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” New York Times columnist Mara Gay said, “I was on Long Island visiting a dear friend. I was disturbed. I saw dozens and dozens of pick-up trucks with, you know, expletives against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags and some cases just dozens of American flags, which, you know, is also just disturbing. Essentially...

President Joe Biden ordered flags lowered to half-staff at the White House and public buildings Friday following yet another mass shooting event in the country – this time at an Indiana FedEx facility. The president said he and Vice President Kamala Harris have been briefed by their security team on the incident 'where a lone gunman murdered eight people and wounded several more in the dark of night.' His statement comes after he has already ordered flags at half staff for prior mass shootings in Atlanta and Colorado, and amid an ongoing impasse in Congress that has prevented a legislative...

President Joe Biden will display transgender flags at the White House on Wednesday to celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility, according to an official. White House Director of Political Strategy and Outreach Emmy Ruiz announced Biden would display the pastel pink and blue and transgender flag at the White House. “Imagine being a trans kid and feeling seen by the highest office in the land. And not just seen, but loved and cared for,” she wrote on social media. Biden also released a statement Wednesday to celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility. “Transgender Day of Visibility recognizes the generations of struggle, activism,...

Red Flags and White Supremacists

American ^ | August 10, 2019 | Brian C. Joondeph
For the past two years, the left’s 'go to' words were “Russia,” “Mueller,” and “collusion.” Mueller’s investigation and report were a big swing and a miss and not surprisingly these words have quickly been erased from the vocabularies of cable news anchors and their panels. On a dime, coincident with a handful of mass shootings, the left’s new favorite words are “racist” and “white supremacist.” Since the three recent shooters were white, it can only mean they were all MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporters, NRA members, and of course, white supremacists. Never mind that their actual political proclivities are left or...

No matter what Marina you were in or visited, TRUMP flags were proudly displayed as far as the eye could see, much unlike what your local media tried to downplay. Mark Odachowski told me last night, "I didn't come across a single negative person". People were begging for these flags as he walked down each pier and immediately putting them on their poles. "It's been an exhausting three days", said Odachowski. Turning down hundreds of onlookers, Odachowski explained how these flags were for the anglers as there is a very limited supply. "One gentleman offered me $100.00 for one flag"....

The flags at the White House, which were lowered over the weekend to mark the death of Sen. John McCain, are back at full-staff. The flags at the U.S. Capitol, meanwhile, remained at half-staff on Monday to honor the Arizona Republican, who died Saturday of brain cancer. […] U.S. Flag Code states that flags be lowered “on the day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress.” After Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts died in 2009, President Barack Obama ordered flags at the White House be flown at half-staff for five days. …

BORIS SPEAKS: ‘Brexit is Dying, White Flags Are Fluttering, May Deal Will Make Britain an EU Colony’

Breitbart (London) ^ | 9 Jul 2018 | Jack Montgomery
Ex-Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has absolutely excoriated Theresa May and her Brexit strategy in his resignation letter, warning that Brexit is “dying” and Britain is “headed for the status of colony”. The former Mayor of London’s resignation followed that of David Davis, who had been Secretary of State at the newly-created Department for Exiting the European Union and was at least nominally in charge of the negotiations with the EU. Davis felt he could not defend the ultra-soft Brexit vision imposed by May at a Cabinet away day in the prime ministerial estate of Chequers, as it left Brussels and its...

Two and half thousand Europeans plan to march into Aleppo waving white flags in a three month long, 2,000 mile demonstration against the civil war taking place in Syria. This year, like last, has been characterised by the massive flow of people northwards through Europe, many of them Syrians fleeing the bombs of Assad and the opposition factions. But a group of Europeans has decided to make the trek in the other direction in order to bring an end to the war, now in its fifth year. “We’re carrying these white flags to let the whole world know our message:...

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Gov. Bill Haslam has ordered that all of the flags flying over the State Capitol and state office buildings need to be flown at half-staff, effective immediately.

General Draza Mihailovich WWII The 70th anniversary of Belgrade’s liberation in WW2, will be marked by a military parade. After a 29-year hiatus, some 3,000 members of the Serbian Army will parade on October 16. Also scheduled is the appearance of the Russian acrobatics group “Strizhi”, flying the newest MiG-29 fighters. The celebration will be graced by the presence of the Russian President Vladimir Putin, a symbol of Russia’s rebirth. Putin’s visit to Serbia is a clear signal to both Serbian citizens and the West. During their aggression against the Serbs in the 1990s, Washington and Brussels have exterminated...
