The Navy, very quietly and with no explanation, has removed the rainbow imagery promoting the LGBT ideology from its web pages.
A report from Fox News said the changes appeared on the Navy’s Twitter and Instagram pages.
The social agenda program of the LGBT community was on the pages on Thursday, but not Friday.
“The posts showed outlines of Navy vessels and aircraft with streaming rainbow trails and the word ‘Pride’ stylized in different colors,” the report said. “They were removed without explanation.”
An official for the military service said, “The U.S. Navy posted graphics in support of the start of Pride month to honor the service, commitment, and sacrifice of the LGBTQ+ service members and personnel who volunteer to defend our country.”
The statement, Fox said, did not address the removal.
But the report said, “A meme account on Twitter called ‘End Wokeness’ called attention to how the Navy also took down an LGBTQ+ Pride banner on its account. Some users left comments suggesting the posts were taken down in response to backlash over military support for Pride.”
The Navy’s statement did continue, “As we do with all Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI) observance months, we will look for additional opportunities to celebrate the diversity and strength of our sailors. Members of the LGBTQ+ community serve their country, fully contribute to the DOD mission, and deserve a welcoming environment which enables them to reach their full potential.”
There has been pressure from members of Congress recently for the military to ratchet down its promotions of “diversity, equity and inclusion” agenda points.
Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, wrote Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin recently demanding information about the Pride celebrations involving the military, on which tax money is spent.

Roy, in fact, told Fox News Digital, “Our military is in a historic recruiting crisis. Our enemies around the world are laughing at us while growing stronger and bolder every single day. The military’s purpose is to defend America and her interests against those around the world who want to destroy us — not to use taxpayer money to advance woke ideology.”
IMPORTANT NOTE: “Election denier!” “Science denier!” “Climate-change denier!” “Conspiracy theorist!” And then there’s “hate speech,” “fake news,” “disinformation,” “misinformation,” even something called “MALinformation.” A bizarre new lexicon has been conjured up by America’s elites, the SOLE PURPOSE of which is to discredit and ridicule – and if at all possible, CENSOR ENTIRELY – speech that doesn’t support their increasingly dark and deranged agenda. Tucker Carlson is just the latest.
In the greatest imaginable irony, the nation once boasting the most robust culture of freedom of speech and the press – undergirded by the strongest constitutional protections for those rights – is now ground zero for a total war on free expression.
How could this possibly happen in the United States of America? It’s all explained as never before in the sensational new issue of WND’s critically acclaimed WHISTLEBLOWER magazine, titled “THE ELITES’ ALL-OUT WAR ON FREE SPEECH.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
