"Democrats have condemned an event in support of Glenn Youngkin, the Republican nominee for governor of Virginia, after the Pledge of Allegiance was performed to a flag apparently flown during the January 6 Capitol attack.
During the "Take Back Virginia Rally" in Henrico County, Martha Boneta, the Republican host of the event, called someone to the stage who was carrying an American flag that was reportedly present at what was referred to as the "peaceful rally with Donald J. Trump" on January 6.
The Republican referred to the January 6 insurrection as "peaceful" despite it resulting in the deaths of five people and a number of suspects being charged with violent offenses including assaulting police officers.
Boneta then asked the crowd to stand up, while those on stage turned and faced the flag to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.
Youngkin was not present at the rally held in his honor, but did feature a phone call of support from Donald Trump, whom he called a "great gentleman.”
