On Saturday, the House of Representatives approved a $60 billion aid package for Ukraine despite fierce opposition from within the Republican majority.

The bill passed 311-112, with more Democrats voting in favor than Republicans. Only 101 Republicans backed the military and economic aid for Ukraine, while 112 voted against it, according to Fox News.

As soon as the votes were counted, several Democrats began waving Ukrainian flags in celebration, violating House protocol.

When Republican presiding officer Rep. Marc Molinaro of New York asked the House to maintain proper decorum, stating that “flag waving on the floor of the House is not appropriate,” there were laughs and groans.

Eventually, Molinaro apparently noted that Rep. Anna Paulina, a Florida Republican, wished to be recognized, the congressional record shows.

“For what purpose does the gentleman from Florida, the gentlewoman from Florida, rise?” Molinaro asked.

“Put those damn flags away,” the freshman lawmaker said — giving a lesson to Democrats who’ve been in the chamber much longer than her single term.

Luna posted a clip of the exchange on X.

“Put those damn flags away,” she wrote. “It is a disgrace to display any other flag than the American flag in the House Chamber!”

Other Republicans also expressed their disgust at the shameful sight of a foreign flag being waved by U.S. representatives on the House floor.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky posted, “Ukrainian flags fly in the chamber of the UNITED STATES House of Representatives as they vote to send more of your hard-earned money to a corrupt foreign regime. And just like that they shout ‘UKRAINE! UKRAINE!’ while happily working to secure Ukraine’s borders, not ours.”

Rep. Dan Bishop of North Carolina wrote, “For the Swamp, it’s Ukraine First and America Last. Gleefully waving Ukrainian flags as the American people suffer under Biden’s border invasion. In case it wasn’t obvious, I voted NO.”

Social media users also had some choice words to say about the appalling behavior of the House Democrats rejoicing in billions of U.S. taxpayer money going to another country while the country’s own borders are undefended.

Expel every single member of Congress who waived a Ukrainian flag today on the floor of the US House.

And then send them to the frontlines of Ukraine.

If you love it so much, move there.

Enough of these America Last traitors.

The country is going to hell.

Speaking to members of the media after the vote, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia said that her colleagues have been “too obsessed with funding of wars and the murder industry” to actually understand how angry Americans are.

“This is the sellout of America today,” Green said. “When we had members of Congress in there waving the Ukrainian flag on the United States House of Representatives’ floor while we’re doing nothing to secure our border. I think every American in this country should be furious.”

Minority leader, Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, posted a portion of his speech on the House floor. In the speech, Jeffries says, “This is the time to choose … We can choose freedom or tyranny. We can choose truth or propaganda. We can choose Ukraine or Russia …”

Regardless of the choice the flag wavers said they were making, there was one choice they were clearly not making.

Do you think Rep. Luna did the right thing?

Sending billions of taxpayer dollars to another country is not a reason to celebrate, even if you believe it is the right thing to do.

It is a choice that puts additional burdens on the people these representatives have sworn to represent.

It loads our children with financial burdens. It leaves our own borders exposed while we protect another country’s borders. It is not a reason to rejoice.

When the obviously coordinated Ukrainian flags appeared “spontaneously” on the House floor, it revealed one thing:

For those waving those flags, it has never been about choosing America.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them.

Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal.

And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people.

The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.

We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.

But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight.

The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help?

With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans.

We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.

Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
