Air Force Infuriates Americans with the Flag a Service Member Is Saluting - Hint: It's Not Old Glory

Share

The U.S. Air Force has come under fire for its June 7 “Pride Month” tweet in which it appears that an airman is saluting the LGBT “progress” flag.

During the first week of “Pride Month,” the Air Force posted a tweet with a caption reading, “June is #PrideMonth! The Department of the Air Force proudly recognizes and celebrates generations of LGBTQI+ service members and their contributions to our #AirForce & #SpaceForce.”

The graphic accompanying the message shows a U.S. Air Force logo and the words “Celebrate Pride Month” over a field featuring the rainbow stripes of the gay flag, pink,white and baby blue stripes representing transgenders, and brown-and-black stripes representing gays of color.

But the part of the image that seemed to bring the most ire was a silhouette of a uniformed figure saluting.

These multi-hued stripes are part of the Progress Pride Flag, created in 2018 by artist Daniel Quasar, and are meant to represent all the various gay factions brought together to symbolize the “progress” they are all making.

This paean to radical wokeness and gay pride flags inspired many Twitter users to blast the Air Force for straying far from its mission of keeping American safe.

Twitter user and conservative commentator Benny Johnson, for instance, asked the Air Force a key question, saying, “Why is the Service member SALUTING the alphabet cult flag?”

Does the United States military need reform?

“It’s illegal for a uniformed service member to salute anything but the American flag,” he continued. “This cult is actively disgracing our military and replacing the American flag like we are a conquered people.”

“This must stop,” he concluded.

Another pointedly noted, “This is why you can’t reach your recruiting numbers.”

Comedian Tim Young added, “I’m so old, I remember when our military only saluted the American Flag… not a flag celebrating all the things people have sex with.”

And the indispensable LibsOfTikTok simply added, “What an embarrassment.”

The Air Force is not the only government entity to go all-in for the groomer gay pride agenda. The San Franciso Sherif’s Office was also seen on a tweet saluting this “Progress” flag.

This is all pretty shocking stuff from law enforcement and military forces. And it’s stuff that many on the right have been warning about for some time. But it seems to be par for the course in Joe Biden’s America.
