Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has just signed on to the “Old Glory Only Act,” joined Florida Reps. Matt Gaetz and Bill Posey to prohibit the raising of any other flag other than “Old Glory” over U.S. embassies and consulates around the world.
Former President Donald Trump rejected requests to fly the Gay Pride Flag (Rainbow) over three U.S. embassies in 2019, and now it looks like President Joe Biden will now allow the Pride flag and possibly other non-U.S. flags to be hoisted up flagpoles around the world.
I'm excited to announce that I've cosponsored the "Old Glory Only Act" (H.R. 85) introduced by @RepJeffDuncan of South Carolina!
H.R. 85 prohibits the flying of any flag other than the United States flag over United States diplomatic and consular posts.
