As you probably know, today is Flag Day. But for Citi–you know, “too big to fail”–it’s Gay Flag Day. A reader sent me this photo of the flags that Citi decided to fly outside its corporate campus in Las Colinas, Texas, today and on last year’s Flag Day. The address 6400 Las Colinas Drive, Las Colinas, TX. Apparently, someone atop Citigroup doesn’t know that Flag Day celebrates the AMERICAN Flag, NOT the Fruity Pebbles flag featuring a symbol gays usurped. Memo to Citi: I doubt the brave American soldiers who raised the flag at Iwo Jima or at Ground Zero on 9/11 were thinking of, “I now pronounce you man and husband.” (Today is also the 236th birthday of the founding of the U.S. Army, an institution which is now allowing open gays in its ranks. Strange coincidence.)
ATTN, Citi: Flag Day is About THIS . . .
Iwo Jima, 1945
World Trade Center, Post 9/11 Attack, 2001
NOT THIS . . .
