Father Whose Son Died in the Disastrous Afghanistan Withdrawal Arrested For Interrupting President During State of the Union

A father who lost his son during the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan was taken into custody during the State of the Union address on Thursday evening.

He was arrested after interrupting the address, demanding that the president remember his fallen son.

“Steve Nikoui, father of LCpl. Kareem Nikoui, who was killed in Afghanistan during Biden’s disastrous withdrawal, has been ARRESTED for heckling Biden’s State of the Union Address,” Town Hall announced on X.

Nikoui had been heard shouting “Marines!” as Biden spoke about foreign policy.

According to reports, Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) invited Nikoui as his guest.

“I am honored to have Steve Nikoui as my guest to #SOTU. He is the father of LCpl. Kareem Nikoui, who was KIA due to Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. [Biden] may try to turn the page on Afghanistan after his incompetence cost American lives, but NOT ON MY WATCH,” Mast wrote on X.

The arrest news ignited a social media uproar.

“So the pro-Hamas crowd was allowed to block a motorcade, but the gold star dad gets arrested for shouting. Awesome,” one user wrote on X.

“The Gold Star dad who yelled during Biden’s State of the Union speech has been ARRESTED. Remember how he treated our Gold Star families? Rule number one: Never criticize a dictator,” another one wrote.

We should never forget how poorly Biden treated members of the US Military.
