New Hampshire House Democrats Kneel During National Anthem
All House Republicans Stand for National Anthem to respect our Nation's Flag.
Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement after New Hampshire House Democrats disgracing our nation's flag by kneeling during our Nation Anthem:
"Democrats have performed a number of disgraceful stunts this legislative session, but yesterday's performance may rank highest among their insults to all patriotic Granite Staters," said Chairman Stepanek. "The people of New Hampshire expect their legislators to represent them with dignity and respect, not disdain. Our nation's flag and our National Anthem represents all those who have given their all in service to our nation; to disrespect it by kneeling is unbecoming of legislators in our nation's largest state legislative body."
