QAnon Nut Republican Marjorie Traitor Greene Co-Sponsors Bill to Ban Rainbow Pride Flag

Crazy GOPQ Rep. Marjorie Taylor Traitor Greene of Georgia has co-sponsored legislation that would ban U.S. embassies around the world from flying the LGBT Rainbow Pride flag.

The Old Glory Only Act H.R. 85,, has been introduced repeatedly since 2018 by Rep. Jeff Duncan, a South Carolina Republican, though it has never advanced. Greene signed on as a co-sponsor Monday. The bill would require the secretary of state to ensure “that no United States diplomatic or consular post flies any flag other than the United States flag over such post.”

In a press release Greene stated her support for the measure was a continuation of her “America First Agenda.”

“The federal government should only be flying the flag that represents ALL people, the American flag,” she said. “We need to bring back pride in our country and raise the Star Spangled Banner proudly. Old Glory represents our great American military and their sacrifices to ensure our freedom.”

While she did not specifically target the Pride flag, she released her statement only 10 days after the new Secretary of State Antony Blinken vowed to allow U.S. embassies to fly the LGBT pride flag. In his confirmation hearings, Blinken said he would reverse a Trump administration’s ban on the rainbow flag “to outright show LGBT solidarity.”

Greene has falsely claimed “president Biden’s State Department has already raised a flag over our embassies that doesn’t represent the vast majority of Americans.”

Seven other Republicans have co-sponsored the Old Glory Act including: Matt Gaetz, Andy Biggs, Ronny Jackson, and Trent Kelly.

Matt Gaetz? Does Nestor know?
