The Washington Post boldly proclaimed in its headlines: Trump reveals Space Force logo, and ‘Star Trek’ fans aren’t happy
NPR said in its headline that the logo "Incited 'Star Trek' Fan Outrage"!
Sopan Debs, a reporter with the New York Times took to Twitter screaming , " THIS IS THE STARFLEET LOGO! THE U.S. GOVERNMENT TOOK A THING FROM A TV SHOW AND MADE IT THE OFFICIAL EMBLEM OF A BRANCH OF THE MILITARY."
Even Star Trek cast member and left-winged activist George Takei Tweeted he expected royalties from the new emblem .
The problem with all of these attacks, like so many by the media and left, is none of it's true.
National Security expert Joe Noonan took to Twitter himself to note that the new logo looked a lot like the shield logo for the United States Space Command, which was established in 1982 by President Ronald Reagan.
"For those excitedly tweeting that Trump stole the Star Trek logo!!!!, the patch on the left was the existing Air Force Command logo."
