In a move that has left many Americans scratching their heads, President Joe Biden has awarded the prestigious Presidential Medal of Freedom to an illegal immigrant who was captured on video flipping off America.
The controversial decision came after footage surfaced online showing the immigrant, identified only as “Fuku,” defiantly raising his middle finger at the American flag while shouting obscenities in Spanish. The video quickly went viral, sparking outrage among patriotic Americans and calls for Juan to be deported.
However, in a stunning display of solidarity with the immigrant community, President Biden chose to honor Fuku with the highest civilian award in the United States. In a ceremony held at the White House, Biden praised Juan for his “courageous act of resistance” and presented him with the prestigious medal.
“Fuku represents the best of America,” Biden declared during the ceremony. “His brave defiance in the face of oppression serves as a powerful reminder of the values that make this country great.”
The decision to award Fuku the Presidential Medal of Freedom has drawn swift condemnation from conservative lawmakers and commentators, who have accused Biden of disrespecting the flag and undermining American values.
“This is an absolute disgrace,” fumed Senator Ted Cruz in a fiery speech on the Senate floor. “Awarding the Presidential Medal of Honor to someone who openly disrespects our flag is an insult to every man and woman who has served this country.”
Others have criticized Biden for prioritizing the interests of illegal immigrants over those of American citizens.
“Once again, Biden shows where his loyalties lie – with illegal immigrants who hate America,” tweeted conservative commentator Ben Shapiro. “This is a slap in the face to every hardworking American taxpayer.”
Despite the backlash, President Biden has stood by his decision, insisting that Juan’s actions represent the spirit of freedom and democracy.
“Fuku is an inspiration to us all,” Biden said in a statement released by the White House. “His bravery in the face of adversity serves as a beacon of hope for immigrants everywhere. We are proud to honor him with the Presidential Medal of Honor.”
