California Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered the Skull & Crossbones to be flown above the Pride Flag at the California Capitol on Monday morning, signaling his official intent to rape, loot, and pillage the United States of America at his earliest opportunity.
Until now, the looting and pillaging has been unofficial.
The decision came at a time when the federal government has told U.S. embassies they are not allowed to fly the Pride Flag. June is also LGBTQ Pride Month and Talk Like a Pirate Month.
“By flying the Jolly Roger over the State Capitol, we send a clear message that #Resistance forces in California are planning a hostile takeover of America, regardless of how you identify or who you love,” Newsom said in a statement.
