Scores of Democrats, on the heels of a vote to pass a foreign aid package, cheered Speaker Mike Johnson — a story in itself, dontcha think? — and then celebrated their victory over Republicans by pulling out Ukraine flags from their pockets and waving them madly in the air.

Democrats get so patriotic when it comes to other countries. Word is, some of ’em shed a few tears of joy.

To them, protecting Ukraine’s borders is top priority — even as they discount the importance of border controls in America. But Democrats’ hypocrisies and shows of anti-Americanism go even deeper.

Waving foreign flags from the House floor violates congressional decorum. The same goes for draping them from shoulders like a cape, as New Jersey Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. did. At the least, it’s bad P.R. At worst — well, at worst it’s just freaking anti-American.

Do we really have to teach Democrats this lesson?

“Banging the gavel repeatedly as he called for order, presiding Rep. Marc Molinaro of New York reminded his colleagues to ‘observe proper decorum,’ adding that ‘flag-waving on the floor is not appropriate,” Roll Call wrote.

Florida Rep. Anna Paulina Luna added this: “Put those damn flags away,” Roll Call wrote.

Florida Rep. Kat Cammack added this: “Watching American representatives pass out & wave Ukrainian flags in the United States House of Representatives chamber infuriated me. If there is one room in our country that should only have the American flag present, it is this room,” Roll Call wrote, citing her social media.


And the fact Democrats don’t know this already speaks volumes about the Marxist, socialist, communist threads that are running through today’s Democrat Party.
