Hang tight while I get some help from my good buddy Wikipedia…

“Botswana, a landlocked country in Southern Africa, has a landscape defined by the Kalahari Desert and the Okavango Delta, which becomes a lush animal habitat during the seasonal floods. The massive Central Kalahari Game Reserve, with its fossilized river valleys and undulating grasslands, is home to numerous animals including giraffes…and wild dogs.”

Oh, and same-sex relationships have been legal in Botswana since June 11, 2019.

That may be the most I’ve ever written about Botswana outside a fourth-grade book report —heck, that may be the most you’ve ever read about the country. It doesn’t come up that much, if we’re being honest —no offense to Botswanans, they just don’t make many headlines.

But we found this to be very curious…

According to a report from The Daily Caller, the Biden Administration State Department is preparing to send $300,000 dollars to Botswana “to promote gay and transgender social acceptance.”

From The Daily Caller:

The Department of State will award one U.S. organization or academic institution with the funds so they may “bolster LGBTQI+ community initiatives” and “build support networks and organizations” in the African country. The participants, which will travel to the country and spend up to 18 months there, will be tasked with promoting gay and transgender acceptance among “influential religious groups and traditional groups.”

So it wasn’t enough to spread woke, gender ideology here in America, we had to make it one of our leading exports, as well?

“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.

“The grant’s language smacks of hostility towards certain religious groups, which is un-American,” said Steube. “It’s truly repulsing that the Biden Administration considers foreign LGBTQI+ initiatives necessary when we have so many pressing issues facing Americans here and abroad.”

Even in an administration defined by waste, this is…yikes.
