Nancy Pelosi, on Tuesday, March 1, shared an image on her Twitter page that may be offensive to everyone who thinks a representative’s primary job is to protect the interests of the public. surname. American components instead of some globalization project or a certain foreign financier.

Declare “The National Assembly remains firmly and resolutely in support of the Ukrainian people. We are committed to providing humanitarian and security assistance to Ukraine, as Russia waged a premeditated and gratuitous war.,” Pelosi shared an image of herself and other reps, including Dan Crenshaw, holding an ugly version of the American flag:

As you can see if you look closely, the lower half of the red and white stripes of Old Glory have been replaced by the blue and yellow stripes representing the Ukrainian flag. In addition, half of the stars were changed to the coat of arms of Ukraine.

For starters, the flag code provides that “The flag of the United States will have thirteen horizontal stripes, alternating red and white, and a combination of white stars on a blue background.

It is insulting to modify the national flag in this way, especially replacing the stripes of Old Glory with Ukrainian blue and yellow, removing half of the stars and replacing them with the coat of arms of Ukraine. .

Furthermore, what it means by the symbol is absurd; Most Americans are against the Russian invasion of Ukraine, that’s true. But do we really treat some financiers halfway around the world like Ohio? Are we treating Russian tanks rolling through the wheat fields of Ukraine as if they were rushing through the cornfields of Nebraska?

It is what they symbolize the absurd insult of the American flag; unite Ukraine and the United States as one, treating an attack on Ukraine as an attack on the United States. That is a step too far.

Twitter, as might be expected, has wreaked havoc on stunt participants.

For example, conservative commentator Matt Walsh said “Despise our flag to own Putin“. In the image he shared, the modifications to the flag and Crenshaw can be seen more clearly:

Benny also jumped in, saying:

Pelosi’s skin will burn if she holds a real American flag, so she has to hold on to this monstrosity.

This is an insult to the American flag.

But it’s not just conservative green checks. Average Americans expressed displeasure with this flag derogation. For example, one person said:

Congress downgrades the US flag.

Another pointed out another violation of the flag code, saying:

@SpeakerPelosi Otis, you’re far behind you think you’re at the top, it’s ridiculous to think you have 7 million followers.

Nothing like members of Congress breaking federal law?

Another, expressing disappointment with the combined flag’s meaning, said:

You want to raise an American flag, great. You want to raise a Ukrainian flag, okay. But don’t mess with our flag. This is America, not AmeriUkraine. Are you not interested in our country and those respectable symbols? There is some common sense.

The American flag is the American flag. Ukraine, regardless of the current predicament, does not and should not get involved. Sadly, a lot of legislators don’t seem to have a grasp of the country they want to represent. Crenshaw and Dems Pose proudly with a scornful version of the American flag
