Pelosi Won’t Let Names Of The 13 Fallen Service Members To Be Read On House Floor, Representatives Claim

According to Nancy Pelosi, a fully orchestrated photo of kneeling congressional members commemorating George Floyd’s death is okay. But merely reading the names of the 13 US service members killed in Afghanistan is too much.

In a shocking revelation, US House Republicans are blasting Democrat Nancy Pelosi, claiming she blocked a Republican-led effort to read the names of the 13 fallen US service members killed in Afghanistan on the floor of the House.

Representative Carlos Gimenez (R-Florida) said on Tuesday, “How badly do Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats want to cover up this Afghanistan debacle? They just blocked Members of Congress from reading the names of the service members who sacrificed their lives in Afghanistan last week. Don’t you think our military deserves better?”

In June of 2020, members of the House and Senate orchestrated a photo op, showing members kneeling to commemorate George Floyd’s death.

Representative Brian Mast of Florida also weighed in while speaking to “The Floridian” publication saying, “We gaveled in, had a prayer, said the Pledge of Allegiance, took a moment of silence with pretty much all Republican veterans, then asked to be recognized to read names and bring up Afghanistan legislation. They did not acknowledge us, and just closed the House down.”

Representative Greg Steube blasted House Democrats saying, “House Democrats just refused to recognize Republican veterans on the House Floor to read the names of our fallen service members in Afghanistan,” Rep. Steube posted to social media on Tuesday. “That’s how far our nation has fallen.”
