WATCH: Nadler Refuses To Allow “Unnecessary” Pledge Of Allegiance To Be Recited

It’s no secret that many Democrats in Congress don’t value the traditions of our great nation. That includes the Pledge of Allegiance.

We already knew they hated the Star Spangled Banner after 4 and a half years of calling it “racist” thanks to Colin Kaepernick, but now they have set their sights on the Pledge.

On Thursday, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler shut down Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz’s request to have the committee 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 said.

“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,” Gaetz said in closing.

Surely after all of the talk of “unity” from former Vice President Joe Biden, Congressional Democrats would absolutely want to show how our country can unify, right?


Nadler responded by rejecting his request and calling the Pledge of allegiance “unnecessary”.

“And the gentleman yields back. I recognize myself to speak in opposition to the amendment. It’s unnecessary,” Nadler said.


The more Democrats take power in our country, the more our traditions, culture and values will evaporate. We must fight harder than ever before to preserve our Nation before the Democrats continue destroying it.
