The tweet is so weird that many thought it was a parody.
CIA's 2023 theme for #Pride Month is WELCO-ME!Wellness Equity LGBTQ+ Community Openness ME! Pride Month is an occasion for all of us at the Agency to pay tribute to the rich history, community, and mission contributions of our LGBTQ+ officers.#Pride2023 pic.twitter.com/aEEZplX13s — CIA (@CIA) June 8, 2023

Re-branding US foreign policy and the US intelligence agencies, including the CIA, as a crusade for LGBTQ2AI+ rights is a truly genius feat of marketing.It's one of the reasons - not the only - that US liberals now regards the CIA and US foreign policy as so benevolent.?️??? https://t.co/XahmRTXGDn — Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) June 8, 2023
Well this is wildly dystopian https://t.co/vezExCrxpB— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) June 8, 2023
In fairness to the CIA, "Pride" is a massive psyop. https://t.co/ARAffnPlzM— Michael Knowles (@michaeljknowles) June 8, 2023
The CIA is a woke spa, not a spy agency to protect America from foreign infiltration. https://t.co/Au8HITw9dj— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) June 8, 2023
The CIA doesn’t have a “rich history” of celebrating Pride, quite the opposite.
This month, we are proud of not only the gay agents that helped us coup and murder heads of states, but also the gay agents that helped us foment dissent and make the coups seem like organic discontent among the populous in societies with regimes we dislike. <3 slay https://t.co/dUHAt8Gfd8— Jessica (Ka) Burbank (@JessicaLBurbank) June 8, 2023
It’s not weird at all that every government agency, and even the military as well is hammering this relentlessly, right?
