As Pride month is underway, the United States Air Force on Wednesday tweeted an image of a soldier saluting the LGBTQI+ flag.
"June is Pride Month! The Department of the Air Force proudly recognizes and celebrates generations of LGBTQI+ service members and their contributions to our Air Force & Space Force," the tweet stated.
The tweet was accompanied by a graphic that read "Celebrate Pride Month," featuring the Air Force logo and a saluting soldier in front of the LGBTQ flag.
The Air Force Global Strike Command responded to the tweet, writing, "Our diversity is our competitive advantage."
The image sparked backlash on Twitter, with Libs of TikTok remarking, "What an embarrassment."
"Why is the Service member SALUTING the alphabet cult flag?" asked conservative commentator Benny Johnson. "Its illegal for a uniformed service member to salute anything but the American flag."
"This cult is actively disgracing our military and replacing the American flag like we are a conquered people. This must stop," he added.
"The only colors American military ought to salute are Red, White, and Blue," Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) wrote.
