U.S. Military Bans all Foreign-Made American Flags – Other Fed Agencies Still OK

Ever since the attack on America on 9/11 patriotism and celebration of America’s glory has been embodied in the unfurled American flag. Now with new recently passed legislation the nation’s flag will no longer have the tagline “Made in Chinaaccording to Fox News.

While it seems fairly obvious to any plain thinking American citizen that the flag that is pledged to is actually created 100 percent in America. But that was not the case and in fact it had been difficult for any patriotic-minded congressional representative to even get it passed due to trade agreements, reported Fox News.

So in effect, American presidents have been borrowing hundreds of billions of dollars from the Chinese and the nation’s citizens were pledging allegiance to flags made by communist China. Hard to believe but this is all too true, when one considers that an estimated $3.3 million worth of American flags are imported from Beijing annually.

For American’s war veterans this had to feel like a hit to the groin and one U.S. congressman and a Vietnam War vet decided this foreign-made American flag buying had to stop. So Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., wrote the legislation, which bans the Defense Department from American flag purchases as well as clothing and food from foreign countries, according to Fox News.

Congressman Thompson was crystal clear about the intentions of his bill that was signed into law. He stressed to CBS San Francisco “I thought it was appalling our Department of Defense would have flags made in other countries, reported Fox News.

The next step is to ban the purchases of foreign-made American flags that appear on all U.S. federal agencies, even though a recent attempt in congress fell short. American-made flags appearing on American federal buildings should be the rule and not the exception.
