Pelosi grants George Floyd military honor



I really despise Nancy Pelosi but this time she has done something really, really distasteful and entirely disrespectful to the US military.

When a soldier falls in service or a veteran passes, it is customary to drape the coffin with a flag of the United States for the funeral and present it to a family member.

The Flag Itself

The portion of the flag denoting honor is the canton of blue containing the stars representing states our veterans served in uniform. The field of blue dresses from left to right and is inverted only when draped as a funeral cloth over the casket of a veteran who has served our country honorably in uniform. In the U.S. Armed Forces, at the ceremony of retreat, the flag is lowered, folded in a triangle and kept under watch throughout the night as a tribute to our nation’s honored dead. The next morning it is brought out and, at a ceremony of reveille, flown high as a symbol of belief in the resurrection of the body.

At the conclusion of the funeral the flag is folded 13 times and there is a meaning to those folds:

  1. The first fold of our flag is a symbol of life.
  2. The second fold is a symbol of our belief in eternal life.
  3. The third fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veteran departing our ranks, and who gave a portion of his or her life for the defense of our country to attain peace throughout the world.
  4. The fourth fold represents our weaker nature; as American citizens trusting in God, it is Him we turn to in times of peace, as well as in times of war, for His divine guidance.
  5. The fifth fold is a tribute to our country. In the words of Stephen Decatur, “Our country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right, but it is still our country, right or wrong.”
  6. The sixth fold is for where our hearts lie. It is with our heart that we pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
  7. The seventh fold is a tribute to our armed forces, for it is through the armed forces that we protect our country and our flag against all enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of our republic.
  8. The eighth fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day, and to honor our mother, for whom it flies on Mother’s Day.
  9. The ninth fold is a tribute to womanhood. It has been through their faith, love, loyalty and devotion that has molded the character of the men and women who have made this country great.
  10. The 10th fold is a tribute to father, who has also given his sons and daughters for the defense of our country since he or she was first born.
  11. The 11th fold represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
  12. The 12th fold represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies God the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost.
  13. The 13th and last fold, when the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost, reminding us of our national motto, “In God We Trust.”

After folding, the flag takes on a unique shape:

After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it has the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under Gen. George Washington and the sailors and Marines who served under Capt. John Paul Jones and were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the U.S. Armed Forces, preserving for us the rights, privileges and freedoms we enjoy today.

This is a military honor, although if desired, an American may have a small star flag on the casket, but large star flags are for military veterans and (cough) politicians. This is a large star flag.

5X9.6 Cotton Veterans Burial Flag Folded In Case ...


George Floyd’s brother was presented with a large star folded flag by nancy pelosi.

George Floyd- who did not deserve to die- was no saint. He had a lengthy rap sheet. He was not a veteran.

I was presented a flag once, at my father’s funeral. It proudly resides in my home. My father was a WWII combat vet, part of the Greatest Generation. The real thing.

I resent what Pelosi did. It cheapens and politicizes what military honors are supposed to mean. She took a knee for Black Lives Matter but not for Chris Kyle.

They are diminished by her actions. Perhaps she can unilaterally award Floyd the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Everybody gets a trophy whenever it helps politically.

Since when did the Speaker of the House do such things?

Vote them out. They want Chazistan Communism and you/they know it.

She hates Americans!

Absolutely disgusting. But, typical demeaning activity by America hating democrat leftists. George Floyd does not deserve to be a recipient of the American Flag. It is a dishonor to those who have served this Country. What did Floyd ever do for this Country?

Maybe Pelosi should have given him a laminated copy of her speech to lionize Robert Byrd, KKK Grand Kleagle (laminated so he can’t tear it up later).

Pelosi and other Democrats never miss an opportunity to piss on this country. Of course, their supporters simply love it, but they are scum, too.

Nasty Nancy presents a U.S. Flag old Glory to thee FATHER OF A CRINIMAL yes like just about all liberals Pelosi is dumber then a stump.When my father a Veteran if WW II passed away in 1982 my mom got the Flag from his Coffin. Once again the Democrats show their not worth being elected

bar fly pelosi is truly a piece of communist shit. my daughter died in service to this country. now a career criminal is honors with a military flag? searched the internet and could not find what branch of the service he served in??

@MOS#8541: I am sure veterans and those who have lost loved ones in the service of their country find this particularly repugnant, but remember; the left HATES the military.

@Deplorable Me:
true, six years in the Corp: Semper Fi

her conduct, representing the dnc, is a complete disgrace to the American Military.

I believe it is intentional!

@Deplorable Me:

I do not believe that this piece of fecal material was ever in the service.

The fact that democrat Bill Clinton was Vietnam Draft Dodger

@Nathan Blue: You have to get the voters 8n her district to vote her out. Good luck.

My mom also got a certificate signed by Ronald Reagan a Award for his WW II contribution.Pelosi had better remember JFK served his country in case she never heard of the PT-109


@Nathan Blue: @Deplorable Me:

Feral negro George Floyd died from a drug overdose.

Mayor Minneapolis is a commie Jew lawyer.


The elections are fake in the S.F. Bay . . . The DNC has been stealing elections for decades in California.

What a disgrace to Veterans and men and women in the armed services. Shame on her for doing this.

That’s what the reader is SUPPOSED to think, even though there’s not a bit of truth to it.

This article is an exploitative propaganda piece that relies on patently faulty logic. While the presentation of the flag that covered the casket is customary following a funeral that involved military honors, the simple act of presenting someone with a flag does not imply any degree of military honors are being conferred.

Turn on your brain. The fact that all ducks are birds does not imply that all birds are ducks.

The flag was presented by Pelosi to Philonise Floyd in recognition of the personally difficult testimony he gave before Congress in support of reform of the nation’s criminal justice system. It was a flag that was flying at the Capitol on the day that his brother was killed. The presentation was part of the Capitol Flag Program, which began in 1937 and has expanded enormously over the years. If you’re not familiar with that, the program involves presentation of around 100,000 flags per year. Any member of Congress can make a request for such presentation flags however often he or she sees fit. Many flags are raised and lowered on the Capitol grounds daily to fill the demand.

Nancy Pelosi’s disrespectful and dishonorable presenting of our flag will not be allowed to diminish my humble pride in the flag that was presented at my husband’s funeral.

The presenting of our flag remains a most cherished tradition and distinctive honor and should be reserved for people who have served our nation with loyal patriotism, sacrifice, and integrity. George Floyd was a repeat criminal and had never served his country with the slightest bit of honor. Re his brother – thousands of people have given testimony without being rewarded with our flag. Perhaps Nancy Pelosi should have presented a flag instead to the family of retired police captain David Dorn who was killed and abandoned on a sidewalk during the riots that followed George Floyd’s death. This particular presenting by Nancy Pelosi was an act only intended to support and publicize the Democrat diminishing of our law enforcement officers.

Nancy Pelosi is a vile disgrace to America and to the beautiful tradition of the presenting of our flag.
