Dems Push “No Glory For Hate” Act to Prevent Former Guy’s Burial at Arlington
Democrats have introduced a bill that would prevent any president impeached more than once to be buried at Arlington National Cemetary. The “No Glory for Hate” Act was written as part of an extensive new bill involving monuments and memorials. The bill would also “prohibit the use of Federal funds for the commemoration of certain former Presidents, and for other purposes.”
It’s unlikely that the Former White House Occupant would want Arlington National Cemetery to be his final resting place, as he would be surrounded by the “suckers and losers” whose service to America was completely lost on him. But since he also loves any spiteful act that would leave Democrats stuck with something of his forever (like federal judicial appointments), the bill was created to make sure that even in death, he would not receive the same special treatment that would be extended to his predecessors and successors in office.
“For years, Donald Trump poured gasoline on lies, encouraging racism and hatred, then lit the match on January 6th,” said Representative Linda Sanchez of California. “A president who has been impeached twice does not deserve the honors bestowed on a former president. We should never glorify the hatred Donald Trump personified as President. This bill ensures that there is no glory for hate – not a building, statue, or even a park bench.”

The bill states, in part, that no federal funds would be allocated to “create or display any symbol, monument, or statue commemorating any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment of this Act or has been convicted of a State or Federal crime relating to actions taken in an official capacity as President of the United States on Federal public land, including any highway, park, subway, Federal building, military installation, street, or other Federal property.”
February 4, the bill was referred to the Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings, and Emergency Management, but no vote has been set as of yet.
