American taxpayers are now funding the Biden administration’s woke or broke mission on the international stage.
According to the Daily Caller, the U.S. State Department will pay up to $300,000 to a nongovernmental organization to promote gay and transgender “social acceptance” in Botswana.
The initiative will “bolster LGBTQI+ community initiatives” and “build support networks and organizations,” according to a grant listing reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation.
The southern Africa nation of 2.3 million people decriminalized same-sex relationships in 2019. Biden’s bundle of taxpayer cash will pay for progressive proselytizers to spread the Pride message in Botswana’s bush country.
“With the Biden Administration’s track record of wasteful, woke spending domestically, it shouldn’t surprise us that this Administration is using our taxpayer dollars to spread wokeness abroad too,” Republican Florida Rep. Greg Steube, who sits on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
So Biden and friends are taking their woke show on the road, and taxpayers in debt-ridden America are paying for it.
