Biden’s CIA: Nail Painting Over National Security?

President Biden’s top intelligence agencies are swapping espionage for nail polish and crochet hooks this June to celebrate “Pride Month.”  Staff at the CIA and FBI are encouraged to have their nails painted in transgender or Pride flag colors during various pride-themed events, all on the taxpayer’s dime.

These month-long festivities, orchestrated by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), let employees in the nation’s most sensitive offices take a break from their crucial duties to indulge in arts and crafts.

The ODNI, who is leading this ridiculous event,  oversees heavyweight agencies like the FBI and CIA. Even the Five Eyes Intelligence Alliance (FVEY) – an elite spy network of the US, UK, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand – is in on the fun, with foreign intelligence agents teaching crocheting classes to make Pride flags. “For crochet, we will have some experienced FVEY crocheters teaching you to make Pride flags,” the memo cheerfully notes. The note adds that the event is suitable for all abilities, even if you’ve never picked up a crochet hook.

Republican Rep. Mike Waltz didn’t mince words on X, questioning, “What are we doing? Threats are exploding. The world is on fire. And this is what Biden’s intel officials are prioritizing?” The Daily Wire characterized the memo as a clear example of how leftwing ideologues have captured and are utilizing the most powerful instruments of the federal government.

Among other eyebrow-raising activities is a lecture by nonbinary transgender activist AC Dumlao, titled “Call Them By Their Name.” The event promises “a comprehensive, compassionate, and informational experience” to educate attendees on allyship. Employees are also encouraged to contribute to a “Why I Am An Ally” blog series.

Rep. Brian Mast of Florida didn’t hold back, stating, “While Russian ships are 90 miles off the coast of Florida and China is circling Taiwan, Biden’s top intelligence officials are hosting nail painting and crochet seminars for Pride Month.”
