Officials at Davis Monthan Air Force Base, in Tuscon, Arizona, allowed a rainbow-striped, same-sex American flag to fly at someone’s home. This is perfectly acceptable, but don’t you dare fly a Confederate flag.

The Washington Times reported that officials at Davis Monthan Air Force Base, in Tuscon, Arizona, are reportedly allowing a rainbow-striped American flag to remain flying at someone’s home after an airman complained it violated Title 4 of the U.S. Code.

Writing for The Blaze, former Senior Airman Brian Kolfage said he was driving through the base when he saw an American flag with rainbow stripes instead of red and white stripes flying high on a two-story house.

Mr. Kolfage argued that the flag violates a section of Title 4 that states the American flag “shall be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red and white; and the union of the flag shall be forty-eight stars, white in a blue field.”

“The flag I saw is a parody of the American Flag with 50 white stars in the union, smeared with the rainbow colors as the stripes. The moment the flag took on the union stars is where it becomes a violation, with my understanding of the U.S. Code,” he writes.

The 355th Fighter Wing Public Affairs office first told Mr. Kolfage that they were reviewing the issue, though no action had yet been taken.

“We take seriously our responsibility to abide by federal law and defend the Constitutional rights of all citizens,” the office said.

Three days later, Mr. Kolfage received the following message: “The installation commander carefully considered the opinions of legal professionals and the law. The display in question is not an altered U.S. flag; therefore, its display does not violate federal law. No action will be taken.”

  1. The installation commander should be held accountable for this travesty. If this isolated case is permitted without consequence this will become an every day occurrence … make whomever is responsible for this unpatriotic act PUBLICLY pay the price.

  2. This is disgusting. I cant believe these things are changing our constitution and what originally was.. I can not believe a rainbow flag has been altered to add our stars like the American Flag. It is an embarrassment imo..

  3. IT used to be that ANY type of change to the U.S. flag was desecration. This latest one is SICK! I hope one of the Privates tries something on his Commanders privates. That will teach him!
