Pelosi calls slain Capitol officer a ’martyr for our democracy’

Speaker Nancy Pelosi mourned the death of the police officer who was killed during an attack outside of the Capitol earlier in the day. Pelosi ordered flags around the Capitol flown at half-staff to honor Officer William Evans. ’He is a martyr for our democracy,’ the speaker said in a statement. Earlier in the afternoon, a man crashed his car into a barrier outside the Capitol, hitting two cops.

Wouldn't he be a martyr for our Republic seeing as we don't live in a democracy?

RIP to the officer that died in the line of duty. Howver, Pelosi is trying to ratchet up the political theater/drama. That old bat should retire and stay in her basement eating gourmet ice cream.

Desperation to get cops to get back on their side whilst affixing propaganda by using such a superlative word like "martyr"

So, no details as yet about the attacker or a motive but Pelosi has to get up there and join the throng of politicians to falsely label the US a democracy... never let a good crisis go to waste Nancy.

I bet she shuts up about this incident real quick when she finds out the attacker was a Nation of Islam. That organization is so crazy even Malcolm X left it...and they killed him for it.

How about she does us a big favor and die a martyr for our so-called democracy.... wouldn't that be something. Just saying. And schumer and biden and harris and other democratic politicians can be martyrs.

Since when did the Democratic Party care about Police officers being injured from mentally ill / unstable, or political radicalism (ANTIFA/BLM)?

Martyrs are dangerous artifact of an age of man who put their faith in "higher powers" to absolve them of responsibility. That is a dangerous word to wield haphazardly.

Leave it to Nippin’ Nancy to pay tribute with one of the most over used and completely inaccurate and inappropriate statements. Very sadly, the man is a police officer who died in the line of doing his duty which happens to be at the Capitol. The same man would do the exact same thing no matter where he was working because that is what police officers do. I know Nancy and her Democrat pals have a very hard time comprehending that police officers routinely put their lives on the line to save others, and that is why they think nothing of bashing and defunding them at every political grandstand opportunity. Does this make him a good officer? Yes. A hero? Absolutely. A Martyr for “our Democracy”? Uh...No. First we are a Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy, and second, he isn’t a martyr, we don’t know that he died defending what he believed in, which is what a martyr does. More than likely he reacted in the moment and did what his instincts and training told him to do. Furthermore, before even using such a term she really should think through the ramifications of using that kind of language in relation to what appears to be, but has not yet been called (to my knowledge) an Islamic Terrorist attack.

Martyr implies something changed for his sacrifice. Since it's all about trying to ratchet up gun control, and Omar made comments like that, I'm guessing that's the plan. Weird how an assailant using a car as a weapon and armed with a knife is somehow related to gun control. Most police officers are pro-2nd amendment. Kind of ridiculous to assume he'd even want to be a martyr for something he statistically probably didn't support.
