JUST IN: Woke Biden Official Tries To Ban Famous WWII Photo

(Congressional Agenda) – The Woke Mob has struck once again as Assistant Under Secretary for Health for Operations at the Veterans Administration, RimaAnn O. Nelson, issued an order to have one of the most famous pictures from World War II, the sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square on Victory Over Japan Day in 1945, removed from facilities. She claimed it depicted sexual assault. And that, my friends, is your daily dose of liberal madness. Hey. Be grateful. At least the government didn’t hire a mentally ill man who is under the delusion that he’s a woman for a high ranking position within the health department.

Oh. Yeah. We already did that a while ago. Dang.

The order, however, was tossed out by Veteran Secretary Denis McDonough.

“How long Madame Nelson will remain in her job after pulling such an amazingly tone-deaf stunt is unclear. But if the administration doesn’t make her walk the plank, Americans will have yet more evidence that the Biden administration will leave no stone unturned in its mission to alienate every normal human being in the country,” The New American reported.

“This memorandum requests the removal of the ‘V-J Day in Times Square’ photograph from all Veterans Health Administration facilities in alignment with the Department of Veterans Affairs’ commitment to maintaining a safe, respectful, and trauma-informed environment,” Nelson’s memo read. “This action is promoted by the recognition that the photograph, which depicts a non-consensual act, is inconsistent with the VA’s no-tolerance policy towards sexual harassment and assault.”

Nelson then went on to provide background on the famous photo saying, ”it depicts a U.S. Navy Sailor kissing a woman dressed in white, a dental assistant, in Times Square, New York City, on the day Japan’s surrender in World War II was announced, marking the war‘s end.”

“Recent discussions have highlighted concerns about the non-consensual nature of the kiss, prompting debates on consent and the appropriateness of celebrating such images in today’s environment, especially within institutions, such as VHA facilities, which are committed to upholding standards of creating a safe and respectful environment,” the memo continued.

Of course, Nelson did not provide a list of individuals who have been involved in “recent discussions,” which probably means it was Nelson and a room full of her cats.

She then went on to say that the DOJ’s “current definition of sexual assault includes any non-consensual sexual act or any act where the victim cannot consent.”

So the photo of Navy sailor George Mendonsa sweeping Greta Friedman into his arms for a kiss was, according to Nelson and other crazies in the progressive movement, sexual assault, it needed to be taken down.

Nelson declared the removal of the picture would be upholding the VA’s effort “to foster a more trauma-informed environment that promotes the psychological safety of our employees and the Veterans we serve.”

The memo soon went viral on social media due to the ‘End Wokeness’ account on X, which put it before the eyes of a clearly embarrassed Secretary Denis McDonough who quickly shot it down.

“If the memo is fake, why not just say that?” ‘End Wokeness’ asked in response. “If the memo is real, will you fire RimaAnn O. Nelson for signing onto it?”

“Let me be clear: This image is not banned from VA facilities — and we will keep it in VA facilities,” he asserted in a post of his own.

The question everyone is asking now is what made Nelson believe she possessed the authority to take this course of action in the first place?

Users on X wanted to know if McDonough approved the memo.

“We are going to need more than an X post from you sir,” Ellen Streiff stated.

Military Times disclosed that officials revealed the memo should have never been sent out and was formally rescinded on Tuesday. No further details concerning the matter were shared.

Friedman, the nurse in the photo, recalled that it “wasn’t my choice to be kissed,” when she was interviewed by the Library of Congress, however, she never made the claim that he assaulted her.

“The guy just came over and kissed or grabbed,” she said, going on to add, “I was grabbed by a sailor and it wasn’t that much of a kiss, it was more of a jubilant act that he didn’t have to go back, I found out later, he was so happy that he did not have to go back to the Pacific where they already had been through the war. And the reason he grabbed someone dressed like a nurse was that he just felt very grateful to nurses who took care of the wounded.…”

“It wasn’t a romantic event. It was just an event of thank-God-the war-is-over kind of thing,” Friedman explained.

It’s reported that Friedman kept a friendship with George Mendonsa and his wife Rita, attending civic events with the couple and anniversary commemorations of V-J Day.

Friedman passed away in 2016 with Mendonsa following suit a few years later in 2019.

  1. This country needs three things, a new President, more prisons and more insane asylums for the weird woke people out there. That photo is probably one of the most famous for the end of the war that exists. Nelson should be in a straight jacket.
