Democrat Introduces Modification Banning Anybody Who Supported Riot From Main Home Pledge of Allegiance



There was a waste of time with a silly throwdown within the Home after Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FLA) launched an modification within the Home Judiciary Committee to recite the Pledge of Allegiance prior to every assembly.

Positive, on the floor this appears innocent sufficient. However coming from Gaetz, it borders on obscene. The Republican Accountability Undertaking reminds everybody of Gaetz historical past towards democracy:

Signed Texas amicus transient
Objected to certification of electoral school votes in a number of states
Made false and/or irresponsible public statements towards democratic system
Voted towards impeachment or conviction of Donald Trump for inciting an rebel
Voted towards creating an unbiased fee to research the Jan. 6 assault
Voted towards holding Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress.

So Consultant David Cicilline (D-RI) supplied an modification limiting “anybody who supported Riot” from main the pledge lest they make a mockery of it.

Watch right here:

“This pledge is an affirmation of your protection of democracy and the Structure,” Cicilline stated. “It’s onerous to take that declare critically if in actual fact, a person in any means supported an rebel towards the federal government.”

Gee. That looks as if a given. Or quite, it needs to be a given. What a tragic state of affairs.

The present Pledge reads: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the US of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation beneath God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

‘I pledge allegiance to the US of America… besides when Republicans don’t win elections’ doesn’t have the identical ring.

This led to an hour-long debate over saying the Pledge of Allegiance. Sure, that is your Congress on Republicanism.

Home Republicans ran to Twitter filled with their favourite distraction strategy of inciting perma outrage of their base, claiming that Democrats are supposedly towards saying the Pledge of Allegiance earlier than conferences:

However rating member Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) identified that Home members already recite the pledge on the ground each day, saying, “I don’t know why we should always pledge allegiance twice in the identical day to point out how patriotic we’re.”

Rep. Nadler may not really feel the necessity to wrap himself within the flag twice a day, however those that have taken direct actions to undermine what that flag represents clearly really feel in another way.

It’s all about how issues look, you see. Republicans are waving that flag after attempting to steal hundreds of thousands of Individuals’ most basic proper and justifying a home terrorist assault by their social gathering’s chief in an try to keep up energy not freely given to him.

Hear To My Newest Podcast On What The 1/6 Committee Left Out That Is A BFD:

Republicans are attempting to make the Pledge of Allegiance a factor as a result of it’s an affordable, simple method to cowl themselves in fake patriotism for the closely funded by billionaires fake populism motion, the approval of which they continually search in more and more determined measures.

It’s also a free diversion from doing their jobs and petty method to rating political hits, realizing their base received’t ever hear that that is redundant and a waste of time.

With Republican management of the Home, we’re again to guarantees to learn the Structure and different bargain-basement pretenses of patriotism that price nothing and solely expend time that’s presupposed to be spent truly serving the American individuals.
