Yes what Pelosi did was an outrageous act of pandering to domestic terrorists BLM and antifa.

That being said, I believe any citizen can ask their congress critter to send them a flag that flew over the White House.

I imagine they only fly an individual flag there once so they can have a supply of them.

It outrages me to know that this old hag’s heart continues to beat. If I outlive her, I will celebrate the day she is fed to the worms. I’ll eat a piece of fresh homemade apple pie on that day.

What do you expect from “ ‘Nasty’ Nancy ‘Putrid’ Pelosi”. The Speaker of the Stupid Lying Ugly Fool DemocRATs in Congress. The Head of the Lousy Lying Liberal Losers that help and praise Criminals, Illegal Aliens and Terrorists while disparaging and degrading the Military and Veterans. Disgracing herself and every member of Congress for her own want of power and control!!! A TOTAL DISGRACE TO OUR COUNTRY!!!!

Nancy Pelosi is a lying, murdering traitor to the United States of America, so her desecrating the flag is no surprise.

FUCK YOU, you worthless, pandering Piece of Shit. I have a Flag that my Wife EARNED by patriotic service to this Nation. She was not a Convicted Felon and a Drug Addict Piece of Shit. She was a Soldier, an NCO, a Leader of America’s FINEST, some of which come home UNDER that Flag. You DISGUST me. I’d die of a ruptured bladder before I’d Piss on you if you were on fire. You can’t Die Soon Enough, Slow Enough or Bad Enough to suit me.

I suspect the military may in some future emergency leave Pelosi and her fellow-travelers standing at the landing pad as the last Helicopter out of DC leaves.

Dang! With all the incredibly bad news for the Nation today (pelousy’s abuse of the flag & the SCOTUS deciding that Iran’s Ayatollahs have the right idea), where is Cersei Lannister and her chemist buddy when we need them...

The honor guard for a veteran’s funeral is special, while not a veteran myself, I’ve attended many veterans’ funerals, including one for a friend KIA, and I have a passing understanding of the protocols. However, any person can request a flag for their funeral, whether or not a veteran.

A non-veteran would not receive the free flag and graveside honor guard services from the designated branch.

When you got your flag that had flown over the capital, was it folded into a triangle? Was it placed into a case like the one that Nancy presented to the family of George Floyd? The flags that I have seen presented to next of kin at funerals of veterans was folded there into the triangle. We had to buy our own case later.

Triangular folding is the “proper” and respectful way to fold a flag, and can be done any time a flag is retired - even if just for the evening, after taps. Boy Scouts can do it.

However it is not required. The number of flags flown over the Capitol is very large, and for that reason I believe they are folded onto a rectangle, primarily for convenience and packaging.

Yes and no. That is why I criticize her for grandstanding.
