US Service Member Forced to Hold Chinese Flag

There’s been a lot of scuttlebutt on social media about a service member who was seen holding a Chinese flag. It happened at the APEC Summit meeting in San Francisco.

The outrage has been significant.

“My father fought in the Korean War. I miss him with all my heart, yet I am grateful he never had to see an American serviceman holding a communist Chinese flag,” the great conservative actor James Woods wrote on X.

Americans were appalled that our Armed Forces would be put in a position to honor the murderous Communists – responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent people.

Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik got right to the point: “Why is an American soldier holding a communist Chinese flag?”

According to Department of Defense guidelines there’s no way that young service member should’ve been holding the flag of our enemy.

Regulations state that service members in uniform and in an official capacity must not carry flags of foreign nations, veterans’ groups or other non-military organizations.

“Unbelievable,” wrote another angry American on X. “The leadership of Biden is pro any country but America. Every American should be outraged.”

Earlier in the visit many San Francisco streets were lined with the Chinese flag — not a single American flag could be seen. It was as if the Bay Area had been invaded and conquered.

And then to see a member of our military in full uniform – holding the flag of our enemy.

It’s like a modern-day version of Red Dawn.

Should American soldiers be forced to hold Chinese flags?
