South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem is the latest leader in a growing chorus of voices against singer Macy Gray's call for a new American flag to replace "Old Glory."
Noem later wrote as well on her official account: "A new flag?! No thanks. Old Glory still waves as a symbol of liberty and justice for all."
Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert had even stronger words for Gray:
Rep. Andy Biggs echoed Boebert's sentiments. "If you don't like the American flag, feel free to leave," the Arizona representative tweeted Saturday.
Jenna Ellis, a former legal adviser to President Donald Trump, tweeted:
Humor site Not the Bee titled an article: "Here we go: Singer Macy Gray calls for getting rid of the American flag because it's 'tattered, dated, and divisive.'"
The article prefaces the critique: "I can't believe MarketWatch published this garbage op-ed from singer Macy Gray."
"Honestly, who among us did not see this drivel coming? Leftists didn't even break stride between 'ban the Confederate flag' and 'ban the American flag.'"
".... There you have it, folks. The American flag now represents white supremacy. Because a few neckbeards waved it one time. Let's just give it up and start over."
"Complete crap," the Not the Bee quips.
