Law Proposed To Ban Foreign Flags On House Floor

After Democrats embarrassed themselves on the House floor last week by standing and raising Ukrainian flags, at least one Republican wants to ensure the sorry spectacle is never seen again.

Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) intends to introduce a bill in the lower chamber banning the display of foreign flags. This came after the video of the leftist celebration went viral and shocked many unaccustomed to seeing patriotism for a foreign nation displayed by U.S. leaders.

Last week’s enduring image followed the House approving another $60 billion in foreign aid for Ukraine. 

Cammack took great exception to the demonstration. Posting on X, formerly Twitter, she declared, “Watching American representatives pass out & wave Ukrainian flags in the United States House of Representatives chamber infuriated me.”

She added, “As we speak, my team is drafting legislation that will prohibit the display of foreign nations’ flags on the House floor.” 

Dozens of Democrats waved small flags that were handed out on the left side of the aisle. One, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ), draped himself with a large Ukrainian flag across his shoulders as he voted in favor of the $60 billion.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) said later that it was a “violation of decorum” to wave the foreign flags on the floor.

Johnson told the media, “I just want to say simply what I think most people around the country understand and agree, we should only wave one flag on the House floor. And I think we know which flag that is.”

Other Republicans took a more aggressive stance against the Democrats and their flags. 

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) grabbed the House microphone and told the leftists to “put those [expletive] flags away!” She later posted on X that the display of any flag other than that of the U.S. in the House chamber is a “disgrace.”

Conservative colleague Eric Burlison (R-MO) concurred. He posted on X, “Democrats waving Ukrainian flags on the House floor tells you everything you need to know about their priorities. Ukraine first, America last.”

The bill to send billions to Ukraine was accompanied by measures to provide aid to Israel and Taiwan. Lawmakers also approved a bill that would potentially ban Communist China’s social media app TikTok.
