With even more evidence that Democrats hate the United States, House Democrats are now banning the Pledge of Allegiance from being recited before committee meetings.
On Thursday, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler denied a request by Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz’s to recite the pledge of allegiance at the beginning of hearings.
“I want to extend a welcome to the new committee members,” Gaetz began.
“I’m grateful to be back on this august committee and I understand and appreciate the significance and importance of the work that we do. And I just think it would be nice in the spirit of national unity and national pride which I know we all aspire to do to a greater extent than at the beginning of each meeting the chair, or one of the designees of the chair, would have the opportunity to lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance,” Gaetz added.
“We’re all aware that in these times it’s important for the country to see members of congress working together on some things and while I know we can deal with divisive issues in the committee, uh, it would be my hope we could start every committee with a great unifying, patriotic moment. I yield back,” concluded.
So, what did chairman Nadler say to all this?
He called the pledge “unnecessary.”
“And the gentleman yields back. I recognize myself to speak in opposition to the amendment. It’s unnecessary,” Nadler said.

Democrats hate everything about America, folks. This is just one more example.
