One of the principal organizers of Dublin’s gay pride parade has decided to add the colors of Ukraine to the LGBTQ rainbow flag, presumably to ensure support for all ‘current things’ are covered.
The result is yet another migraine-inducing virtue-signaling vomit of colors.
“Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride, one of the principal organisers of the annual gay pride parade in Ireland’s capital city, has seemingly decided to add the colours of the Ukrainian flag to the ever-evolving rainbow flag,” reports Breitbart.
“The official website of Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride — an organisation funded and sponsored by a combination of government organisations and private enterprises — (is) using a version of the rainbow flag which includes the Ukrainian flag’s colours as the banner image for this year’s “March & Parade”.”
The result means that the Ukraine flag largely outsizes colors used to represent the myriad of other identities on the flag, which could cause disputes over which ‘current thing’ is more important than the other.
An article published by Snopes attempts to debunk a previous social media trend that claimed the Ukraine colors had been added to the pride flag as “false.”
However, the Dublin gay pride organization adopting the new design is a genuine story, and Snopes had to add an editorial clarification to its original piece acknowledging that fact.
As we have previously highlighted, the increasingly desperate desire on behalf of progressives to cover all the bases and represent the multitude of sexualities, identities and gender preferences they’ve invented out of thin air is getting hilarious.
Another updated version of the flag was revealed by left-wing London Mayor Sadiq Khan earlier this year to represent International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT).
As we reported earlier, Twitter users ridiculed the US Marines for adding ‘gay bullets’ to an image showing their support for gay pride month, and in doing so literally aping a satirical meme.

What Is ESG? It’s A Leveraging Tool For The Woke Communist Takeover
The corporate dynamic when it comes to politics has been rather bizarre the past five years.
The general rule for decades in the US was that companies would avoid public sparring over political agendas whenever possible and if they did contribute to election campaigns they would spend money discreetly on candidates in both parties to hedge their bets. Something changed around 2015-2016, however.
Was it the surprise election of Donald Trump? Trump was probably incidental. It was more likely the dramatic shift among conservatives away from the controlled Neo-con paradigm and into a more liberty oriented standing. Ron Paul’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns had a lot to do with this change among Republican voters. Conservatives and liberty minded independents were returning to their foundations of small government, constitutionalism, independent thought, meritocracy and decentralization. This is when the corporate world decided (or was perhaps guided) to go full bore leftist.
That is to say, the leftist cult couldn’t stifle the rise of conservative liberty advocates without consolidating their control in the open, and corporations are a big part of that strategy.
Wall Street, Entertainment Media and Big Tech companies donated FAR more to Democrat candidates in recent years compared to Republican candidates. In the 2020 presidential election, they spent 250% more on Joe Biden’s campaign than Donald Trump’s. But beyond that, many companies have gone aggressively and openly woke. Social Justice narratives of “equity, diversity and inclusion” are dominating corporate culture, and though leftist bias has always been a problem among Hollywood elitists and the entertainment media, things got a lot worse after 2016.
Part of this aggressive leftism could be attributed to the ESG movement (Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance), a clear appendage or tool for globalist foundations like the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation and the World Economic Forum. It is also referred to as “stakeholder capitalism” and “mission related investing.” Stakeholder capitalism is just another term for socialism/communism, and ESG is a related control methodology for dictating how businesses behave politically.
The term “ESG” was originally coined by the United Nations Environment Program Initiative in 2005, but the methodology was not fully applied to the corporate world until the past six years when ESG investment skyrocketed.
There are some people that will argue that ESG is not a true “communist” mechanism because communism technically involves the state taking control of the means of production. These people are either ignorant or they are acting deliberately obtuse. Communism is about controlling culture just as much as it is about controlling the economy.
Corporations are at bottom creations of government; they are chartered by governments, receive special legal advantages including corporate personhood, and they often receive special protections from governments including central bank stimulus and a shield from civil litigation. They call it “too big to fail” because the government and the corporate world work hand in hand to keep certain institutions alive.
One could call this an odd mix of communism and fascism; the point is, the lines have blurred beyond all recognition and the ideology of the people in power is specifically leftist/communist/globalist. Corporations already have government incentives to protect the corrupt status quo, but ESG is designed to lure them into supporting vocal political alignment even at the cost of normal profits.
ESG is about money; loans given out by top banks and foundations to companies that meet the guidelines of “stakeholder capitalism.” Companies must show that they are actively pursuing a business environment that prioritizes woke virtues and climate change restrictions. These loans are not an all prevailing income source, but ESG loans are highly targeted, they are growing in size (for now) and they are very easy to get as long as a company is willing to preach the social justice gospel as loudly as possible.
Deloitte’s Insights studies show that ESG assets compounded at 16% p.a. between 2014 and 2018, now account for 25% of total market assets, and they believe that ESG could account for 50% of market share globally by 2024.
These loans become a form of leverage over the business world – Once they get a taste of that easy money they keep coming back. Many of the loan targets attached to ESG are rarely enforced and penalties are few and far between. Primarily, an ESG funded company must propagandize, that is all. They must propagandize their employees and they must propagandize their customers. As long as they do this, that sweet loan capital keeps flowing.
It’s enough to keep corporations addicted, but not enough to keep them satiated. Diversity hiring quotas based on skin color and sexual orientation rather than merit help make the overlords happy. Pushing critical race theory smooths the way for more cash. Carbon controls and climate change narratives really makes them happy. And, promoting trans-trenders and gender fluidity makes them ecstatic. Each participating company gets it’s own ESG rating and the more woke they go, the higher their rating climbs and the more money they can get.
The list of companies heavily involved in ESG includes some of the largest in the world, with influence over thousands of smaller businesses. The ESG rating system is much like the social credit scoring system used in communist China to oppress the citizenry. The tactic is pretty straightforward – Banking elites are centralizing control of social narratives by incentivising businesses to embrace social justice and globalist ideals. They control who gets the money and anyone who doesn’t play ball will be at a distinct disadvantage compared to companies that do.
They figure, if the corporate world can be pushed to go full woke, then this will trickle down to the general public and influence our behaviors and thinking. Except, it hasn’t exactly worked out that way. Resistance to woke propaganda is growing exponentially and many of these companies are losing a huge portion of their customer base. They cannot survive on ESG alone.
The thing is, even ESG money has limits.
With central banks around the world now raising interest rates these kind of loans will become more expensive and will likely start to phase out. This is why the most woke corporations out there are also some of the most desperate for revenues this year, and why many of these companies are edging closer and closer to mass layoffs. The venture capital is gone and the ESG money is going to dry up also unless rates go back to zero and the bailout firehose is turned back on. Getting woke was once a backdoor tactic of gaining easy wealth. Now, getting woke really does mean going broke.This article was originally published at Zero Hedge
Christian High School In Manhattan Hosted Mandatory Drag Show In Place Of Church Service
Would leftists actually target a Christian school church service with a sexualized drag show? Of course they would.
Students at Manhattan’s Grace Church High School say they were supposed to attend Wednesday church services on April 27th, 2021 when they were greeted with a surprise substitution show featuring a dancing drag queen in orange go-go boots called “Brita Filter” (the symbolism of the stage name is unknown). The event was sponsored by “Spectrum,” the school’s LGBT support club and members of the school faculty.
The students allege they felt pressured to participate and had to pretend they enjoyed the event. Some Spectrum club members tapped teens on the shoulders and ordered them to stand for the show, while others handed out pride stickers and stated “Take one or you’re homophobic.” Other kids got involved in the show and began twerking in the chapel.
After the dancing was over, Brita discussed being “pansexual.”
Said one student, “It’s notable that this person consistently called themselves fabulous and talented and beautiful. Not just once or twice, but over and over this person reassured themselves that way…”
The inherent narcissism of the pride movement is easily observed.
The school website details their pride related programs and Brita Filter’s performance.
Beyond the obvious affront to Christian doctrine, the trend of sexualized drag performances for kids sponsored by schools has become an epidemic. Numerous schools over the past year have been caught secretly hosting drag queen shows without asking parents for permission. The wider media exposure of these events has been met with attacks from leftists, claiming that there is no sexualization agenda in schools.
The gaslighting has been rampant and the goal behind trans indoctrination and school drag shows is openly admitted: It’s about political activism and normalization.
On TikTok, Brita bragged about the event:
“I literally went to church to teach the children today…A Catholic High School here in NYC invited me to their Pride Chapel. Visibility matters and I’m so honored to have had the chance to talk to you about my work as a LGBTQ+ Drag Queen Activist.”
Grace Church Schools plan to introduce pride events to younger middle schoolers as well, with lessons on the “history of the pride flag” and what it symbolizes.This article was originally published at Zero Hedge
Report: BBC Insider Charges Broadcaster Is “Disappearing Women” In Favour Of Trans People
To meet gender “quotas”
A BBC senior insider has claimed that the British state funded broadcaster is “disappearing women” on its staff and its programming in favour of trans people in order to meet ludicrous woke “gender quotas”.
The Telegraph reports that the BBC is following guidelines set out in 2017 known as The 50:50 equality project, which was supposed to be focused on elevating women within the corporation, but has now been hijacked to include biological males identifying as women.
The report notes that while “content-makers monitor the gender identity of their contributors with the aim of featuring at least 50 per cent women – they do not monitor whether a contributor’s gender differs from their sex registered at birth”.
The senior source told the Telegraph that “The BBC has now ‘disappeared’ women as a sex class and instead monitors ‘gender identity’.”
“It’s redefined a word which we all understand, without any public debate, and (50:50 equality project founder) Ros Atkins has gone along with the change.”
The source adds that “In this 50:50 monitoring, the BBC is still following ‘Stonewall law’ in failing to respect sex as as a protected characteristic.”
“Sadly, the BBC still seems to be a deeply sexist organisation where these concerns raised by women are dismissed,” the sources further asserts.
The BBC responded in a statement, claiming “this is clearly an attempt to generate a story where none exists”.
The statement further claimed that “The BBC’s 50:50 project is a ground-breaking initiative that has significantly increased women’s representation in BBC content and has inspired others to do the same.”
As we previously highlighted, the license fee-funded BBC has hired “trans and nonbinary inclusion” consultants to train its staff that there are at least 150 different genders.
Employees were ordered to include their own gender pronouns in company emails, a list which has now apparently expanded to include newly invented ones such as “xe, xem, xyrs.”
A source who leaked the story to the Telegraph after quitting the BBC told the newspaper, “The BBC simply doesn’t understand what’s going on with gender identity ideology,” and has “been pandering to a social contagion amongst young people rather than being the adult in the room.”
The whistleblower added that there is a “tight-knit cabal at the top of BBC News who give tacit approval to gender ideology” and block stories critical of transgender ideology while ensuring ones that “affirm gender ideology…go straight to output.”
In another instance, we highlighted how the BBC recently changed the wording of a rape victim’s testimony because woke employees didn’t want to ‘misgender’ the biological man who allegedly carried out the abuse.
An anonymous source from within the BBC told The Times of London that “They were originally all male references but the woke bros at the news website wanted to make them female because of misgendering. It’s quite shocking. I can’t think of any other situation where we would change the words of an alleged rape victim.”
