Gold Star Parent is Placed Under Arrest for Interrupting Joe Biden’s State of the Union Speech  Steve Nikoui

Steve Nikoui, a Gold Star parent invited to attend the State of the Union address, has been placed under arrest for interrupting Biden’s speech.

“U.S. Capitol Police confirmed to NBC News that Steven Nikoui, a guest at tonight’s State of the Union address, was arrested for disrupting the speech,” the media outlet reported.

“Our officers warned him to stop and when he did not, the man was removed from the House Galleries and was arrested,” Capitol Police said. “Disrupting the Congress and demonstrating in the Congressional Buildings is illegal.”

Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) invited Nikoui, who is the father of one of the 13 U.S. service members killed in the attack on Abbey Gate during the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

As reported earlier by the Politics Brief, during Biden’s boasting about allegedly making America safer, distraught man yelled “United States Marines!” and “Abbey Gate!”

“The man screaming at Biden during his speech was Steve Nikoui, whose son, Kareem Nikoui, was killed during Biden’s DISASTROUS Afghanistan withdrawal Steve was screaming things like ‘UNITED STATES MARINES’ and ‘ABBEY GATE!’ If there’s anything I’d ask you to do tonight, it’s pray for the Nikoui family, and demand they receive justice for Kareem,” Nick Sortor reported.

Steve Nikoui’s sad story was first told to Americans after President Biden’s disastrous Afghan withdrawal.

“Steve Nikoui had been glued to TV reports on Thursday, desperate for hints his son, Lance Corporal Kareem Nikoui, survived the deadly airport suicide bombing in Afghanistan when three Marines arrived at his door with the worst news possible,” Reuters reported in August 2021.

“The 20-year-old Marine, who the previous day had sent home a video of himself giving candy to Afghan children, was among 13 U.S. service members killed in the bombing,” the story continued. “Others included an expectant father from Wyoming, the son of a California police officer and a medic from Ohio.”

“He was born the same year it started, and ended his life with the end of this war,” Nikoui said.

“Joe Biden has been trying to turn the page on Afghanistan after his incompetence cost American lives, but not on my watch,” Rep. Mast said.  “For the last three years, Joe Biden has done nothing but tried to deflect blame as terrorists have taken hold of Afghanistan, repressed women, and killed those who supported America.  I will continue to call out President Biden to remind him of the damage he has done to national security and American families.”

This Gold Star parent’s arrest adds more insult to injury after Joe Biden infamously checked his watch while at a ceremony for the dignified transfer of remains.
