BizPac Review ^ | June 15, 2020 | Jon Dougherty

Scores of Americans were outraged after seeing a picture of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) presenting an American flag to the family of George Floyd as though he had been killed fighting for the country.

The photo, which was seen posted on various social media sites, was confirmed as genuine by BizPac Review after locating it as part of a collection involving the family of Floyd on Pelosi’s official Twitter feed.

“Philonise Floyd’s heart-wrenching testimony to @HouseJudiciary left its mark on us all. May this flag, which flew over the Capitol on the day of his brother’s murder, serve as a symbol of our shared commitment to securing justice for George & all victims of police violence,” she wrote on her post containing the photo.

I don’t think George Floyd was from California. Shouldn’t something like this happen with your own representative?

I get it though, if he was not a Veteran this is inappropriate.

Actually, a non-veteran can have a folded flag at his funeral, however, the VA would not provide it for free, as they would for a veteran.

Look at all the pomp and circumstance given to George Floyd and the memorials and such, then compare all to this:

Maybe some porn videos

Maybe they were patriotic pornos, like Apocalypse Ho, Full Meatal Jack-It, Saving Ryan's Privates, Holes Of Glory, Sergeant Pork, They Were Expandable, Das Booty, and of course, The Big Red One.

Thanks for the info. The one point during my dad’s funeral when my mom burst into open tears was when the commander of the local VFW honor guard handed her his flag. And he just maintained radio gear in the Air Force for a hitch.

American Flag to a crack head career criminal who resisted arrest and dropped a bag of it while trying to keep from being taken into custody?
I truly believe we are now living in a bizzaro world!


Pandering no doubt but Congress gives out these flown flags like candy to connected people. Donors, friends, whatevers. It’s really not a big deal.

But wait wait. I’m told that the systemic racism of the country killed him. Tone deaf.

Lots of people get flags that flew over the Capitol. Politicians use them for many purposes.

I have a flag that flew over the Colorado Capitol.

The only thing I have an issue with is Nanzy's obvious pandering to use this family's grief for political purposes.

It is now OBVIOUS that Pelosi and the Democrats are trying desperately to provoke some Americans ANYWHERE to take up arms and attack the government somewhere in order to claim we are the problem and to further disrupt the elections. The things she is doing point to a deliberate attempt to provoke armed conflict. It is a trap. After the elections, Trump will have the DOJ deal with her (them). Do NOT fall for it.

A cousin died in Vietnam after a couple of tours.

Who knew he could have been honored by the speaker of 5he house if instead of joining the Marines he had just gotten high on heroin and fought with police while being arrested for a Felony.

All my cousin got was a 21 gun salute and his flag handed over to the family by a Sargent.

But that is more ho orable than a Traitor.

I can think of something else that should be hung (hanged) over our Nation’s Capitol.

I can think of several hundred

As a frustrated anonymous black University of California History professor recently described GF:

"Floyd was a multiple felon who once held a pregnant black woman at gunpoint. He broke into her home with a gang of men and pointed a gun at her pregnant stomach. He terrorized the women in his community. He sired and abandoned multiple children, playing no part in their support or upbringing, failing one of the most basic tests of decency for a human being. He was a drug-addict and sometime drug-dealer, a swindler who preyed upon his honest and hard-working neighbors. "

Pelosi is a good example of one of our Leftist community leaders hard at work.

As the widow of a career Army officer, I was handed the flag at my husband’s funeral-a special moment for me-and just hearing about this pisses me off more than I can say-to see the family of someone who never served and was a meth head and criminal presented with that flag. What happened to that man should not have-but it doesn’t merit a flag presentation, no matter how he died-that bitch Pelosi has insulted all veterans and their family members, too...

As inane as this is, it’s common practice for Congressitters to gift to people flags flown over the capital.

Usually, though, it goes to donor$. Same difference here, as Pelosi is working it. (Love her mask regimine, though).

Floyd had a history of arrest over the years. Now how that plays into this event
will have to be determined.
