Of course Dems resist reciting the Pledge of Allegiance anymore than forced to

House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler denied Rep. Matt Gaetz’s request to begin each meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance saying the committee is “covered” as the House already begins each day with it.

Gaetz, R-Fla., asked that “in the spirit of national unity and pride,” the Judiciary Committee begin each meeting with the Pledge.

Gaetz, who’s made a name for himself as a spirited Trump loyalist, said that in these divided times, it would signal a “great, unifying patriotic moment.”

“It’s unnecessary,” Nadler shot back. “The House begins every day with the Pledge of Allegiance, we’re covered by that.”

The pledge became a part of the House daily order of business in 1988.

“I appreciate the gentleman’s suggestion but we are covered by the House,” Nadler said. “We all say the Pledge of Allegiance every day.”

Some took Gaetz’s request as “virtue signaling,” while others thought Nadler’s response made the pledge seem like an obligation.

“I proposed that we begin each meeting of the House Judiciary Committee by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Democrats just said ‘no,'” Gaetz wrote on Twitter of the incident.
