In the post titled "United States of Gaymeria? U.S. Embassy in London Flies Rainbow Flag" that was first reported by Business Insider, William Palumbo expressed his shock and horror at a photo of the embassy sent to him by his friend.
"Can I pose a serious question? At what point does replacing the American flag with the rainbow flag, a symbol of gay/LGBTQ (RSTUVWXYZ) pride from embassies abroad become an impeachable offense in itself?" Palumbo wrote.According to Palumbo's friend, "there was no American flag in sight."
"Now, to say a few things that some people will find unpleasant, but need to be said. This administration has a record of placing gay ambassadors in countries where they are not welcome. The Dominican Republic last November, for example, was pretty well outraged," said Palumbo, adding, "As anyone who knows about the Foreign Service will tell you, it has always been somewhat of a refuge for homosexuals. Ditto the CIA, whose ranks were and are filled by people of alternative lifestyles – including gays, nudists, those who believe in mind control, etc."
Palumbo went on to refer to the questionable rumor former Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, who was killed in the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, was gay. He also presented similar rumors about 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta and suggested President Barack Obama has a "strange relationship" of his own.
"If you want to go deeper down the rabbit hole, consider that Mohamed Atta, a 9/11 hijacker from Egypt, was also gay, and this is not so uncommon among jihadis. Then consider Obama’s strange relationship with the Emir of Qatar," Palumbo said.
Palumbo was evidently aware his post could be controversial. He concluded with a "note" telling readers not to "write letters of complaint" about the post to the New York Young Republicans.
