The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) posted an image to social media of the agency recruiting potential employees at a Pride event in North Carolina.

“Recently, @FBICharlotte participated in a Pride event where the #FBI spoke to attendees about career opportunities and the work the Bureau does to protect civil rights,” the FBI posted Sunday.

Social media users furiously reacted to the FBI spending time recruiting at Pride events instead of investigating criminals.

“We thank the #LGBTQ+ members of our #FBI family, law enforcement partner agencies and organizations, and the community for their many contributions to the Bureau and our nation. The FBI serves and welcomes all,” FBI Charlotte posted in June.

The Post Millennial reports:

The FBI included a link to its website regarding the agency’s outreach programs and encouraged people to “learn about opportunities to participate in #FBI community programs near you.”

The federal law enforcement agency has been under mass scrutiny over the past few years. A report released by the House Judiciary Committee in 2022 detailed allegations of misconduct and political bias within the FBI under the Biden administration. The report detailed how the agency alters and manipulates data to better fit a predetermined narrative from the Biden administration about domestic extremism and purges employees with conservative views and those who dissent from diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.

Presidential GOP candidates such as former President Donald Trump, who is the current Republican frontrunner, and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy have vowed to terminate, defund, and transform the FBI in order to rid the agency of targeted weaponization toward Americans.
