OUTRAGE: America's National Intelligence Apparatus Distracted by 'Pride Month' Nonsense


An old friend of mine is fond of pointing out that when you think things couldn't possibly get any dumber, they do. This happens in a variety of areas, and when I first heard my friend talk about this it was concerning a corporate setting, but it happens in government as well - and boy howdy, it sure as heck also happens in government. Whenever you think things couldn't get any dumber or more outrageous, the next dummy or the next outrage comes along and blows you away.

My old friend calls this effect "Peak Derp." The principle point is that one never achieves Peak Derp because, sadly, there is always more derp.

The Biden administration seems not only to accept this rule but to embrace it; they are like the Energizer Bunny on crack, they just keep getting dumber, and dumber, and dumber. Their latest Peak Derp moment comes to us from an exclusive story from The Daily Wire's Spencer Lindquist, who has uncovered how our national intelligence services will be celebrating Pride Month.

Yes, really.

The top intelligence agency in the United States is celebrating Pride Month by inviting agents to have the transgender flag painted on their nails, participate in a “Pride Ally Challenge,” and learn from a “non-binary,” “Filipinx” activist who has taught children about her non-binary identity, a document exclusively obtained by The Daily Wire reveals.

The intelligence document outlines nine different Pride Month activities held by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), a cabinet-level agency overseeing the rest of the IC, including the CIA, FBI, NSA, and intelligence components in each branch of the military. Over the course of the month, intelligence officers will have their nails painted with trans flags, or even learn to crochet their very own Pride flags.

OK, as should come as a surprise to no one, I have a few questions. Here's the first one:

Why? Why is this a priority? Do these people have nothing better to do while on the clock? At the same time, are they not being paid by the taxpayers to, oh, I don't know, safeguard our national security by detecting and evaluating potential threats to the American people, our country, and our way of life? That is what we are paying them for, after all. Not to mention that these events are also funded by the taxpayers, who by the way are also faced with nearly $35 trillion in national debt. This is pandering, pure and simple, to a tiny but loudly vocal segment of the population to shore up the Democrat's voting base.

Is it too much for we taxpaying citizens to expect these people to do their damn jobs? But no - these national intelligence agencies, under the Biden administration, have to keep reaching for Peak Derp.

Spencer Lindquist lays out all the documentation from the Director of National Intelligence at X; it's worth a read.

The Director of National Intelligence, I hasten to note, oversees the intelligence apparatuses of the CIA, the FBI, the NSA, and the several branches of the military. That's who is being served up this hot steaming mug of wasted time and money. This is where the Biden administration's priorities are - not in safeguarding the American people from potential threats, but in painting Pride flags on people's fingernails and listening to "Filipinx" activists.

Bear in mind that while all this is going on, the Biden administration continues to leave our southern border wide open; they have admitted millions of people, most of whom we have little or no idea who they are, why they are here, where they are going or what they intend to do when they get there. Is it too much to ask to have our national intelligence people pointed in the direction and ask them, "Hey, folks, maybe put down the nail polish and crochet hooks and look into this?"

And there's always that horrifying reminder: We probably haven't seen Peak Derp yet. Think about that and tremble!
