The National Center for Transgender Equality sent flags to Capitol Hill to commemorate Trans Visibility Week but Democrat lawmakers took it upon themselves to remove POW/MIA flags that commemorate military troops who are Prisoners of War or Missing in Action with the Transgender flag.
BERNIE SANDERS: Democrat presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, tweeted a picture of the Transgender flag and the American flag next to each other where the POW/MIA flag should have been.
Discrimination has no place in our society. I am proud to display this flag as a symbol of my support for transgender people across the country. We must stand with transgender people in all of our communities. pic.twitter.com/W6Esa16vzP

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE: Made it’s first implementation of a ban on the enlistment of people who are taking hormones or transitioning or have transitioned to a different gender.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES: On Thursday, the House voted 238-185 on a non-binding resolution to oppose the policy, which will go into effect next month.
DEMOCRATS: Nancy Pelosi replaced her POW/MIA flag with the Transgender flag too because of protest.
NANCY PELOSI: Pelosi said she supports her resolution to go through because, “there is no moral justification for this ban, which violates every value of our American democracy.”
CONCLUSION: In honor of Trans visibility week, The National Center for Transgender Equality, sent Transgender flags to Capitol Hill to all offices.
Mostly, Democrats put them up and replaced POW/MIA flags for Transgender flags in the name of protesting the Transgender ban.
