WWII Vets Plan to Storm Barricades at Lincoln Memorial, After Obama ‘Goons’ Close Sites Down
Stand With Arizona ^ | 10-02-2013 | John Hill

Above: National Park Service workers setting up new barricades this morning, around the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

-

Yesterday, the Obama Administration got real petty over the partial government shutdown, sending employees to barricade memorial sites around Washington that are normally open 24/7.

Thankfully, one group of WWII vets wasn't having ANY of it - removing barricades, with the help of fantastic GOP Reps. like Steve King (R-IA) and others - and refusing to be denied access to THEIR World War II Memorial.

Well today, another group of WWII vets plan to do the same thing at the Lincoln Memorial, as Weasel Zippers reports...

The same veterans group that managed to storm the gates at the WWII memorial yesterday is planning taking on the fences at the Lincoln Memorial today. This sounds like a capitol idea, pun intended.

Both memorials are open air memorials. The Lincoln Memorial is open 24 hours a day, normally. If you’ll recall, it was wide open to having someone throw green paint on it in the evening a few months ago.

So that means the Obama administration is making a conscious effort to spend more in time and money to shut off something which is normally open.

How ridiculous is this effort by President Obama to make the people “hurt” so he can blame it on Republicans, just as he did with the sequester, which was also his idea?

We still don’t have access to the White House, the people’s house, allegedly because of the sequester, although Obama has spent countless of our millions since then on vacations, parties and golf.

When you have the opportunity to pass bills for veterans and national parks,unconnected to Obamacare, and then don’t pass them, or spend more to close spaces then to keep them open, the reason is simply you want to continue to have people feel the pain.

And that, Mr. President, is sick.

Members of Congress are reaming Obama over the disgraceful barricading of these open-air public memorials.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) blasted the administration for trying to block the World War II vets yesterday, saying “some idiot in government sent goons out there to set up barricades.”

This morning those same "goons" - who somehow are on the job despite most certainly being "non-essential" - were setting up fresh barricades around major open-air memorial sites around D.C. (see photo below of their activities at the WWII Memorial around 9am).

As with his absurdly shutting off the "Panda Cam" at the National Zoo - which is already fully-funded by the Ford Motor Company Fund - Obama is using the shutdown as a political tool, just as he disgracefully did with the Sequestration.

Remember, during the sequestration - in fact, before it even took effect - Obama's DHS insanely , citing non-existent budget cuts. Those released aliens contained dozens of violent criminals, most of whom are still at large.

SWA salutes the "Greatest Generation" vets who stormed the beaches, for taking on Obama's goons by storming the memorials this week. We urge anyone in the D.C. Metro area to JOIN THEM, and refuse to be barred from the People's Memorials by political games.

Just how can the government close an outdoor monument like this, preventing the people who own it from visiting? It doesn’t take any government personnel to allow entrance. In fact, they have people to erect barriers, why have them collect trash?

This thing with the veterans is the lowest ***damn thing I have ever seen anyone do.

Ever.

I do not understand. I cannot understand how that f***ing little maggot Obama can even look himself in the mirror.

F*** him, f*** democrats and f*** every stinking GOP worm who may have a hand in this disgrace and dishonor.

WHAT DISGUSTING PEOPLE THESE ARE!

God Bless our veterans. I love you.

Godspeed! This is a mostly privately funded memorial. There is no reason to barricade an open-air memorial! None! Still waiting for all those government-financed abortion mills to close.

I sure hope they place the fault unquestionably at BOs feet. The MSM has no loyalty to these gentlemen tho they should

The MSM will characterize this as the WWII vets as for BO. And against Ted Cruz. And the mecken’s morons will believe it

Why else would BO set these guys up? They are not sacred to him

0bama is nothing more than a petulant child throwing yet another temper tantrum. What he needs is a damned good blistering and some well-deserved public humiliation. That has always been the only thing that works on a snotty brat. BTW, I thought you had to be 35 to be president, not five.

The petty, nasty, all-around scumminess of Prince Barry and his minions is on display every day.

But on some days more so than others.

This is one of this days.

This makes me livid. How I loathe this creepy cretin, this human vomit spewed up from Chicago and come to coagulate in a festering puddle in the swamps of DC.

And just what personnel are involved in keeping some of these monuments open???

It appears that it takes more personnel to keep them closed than to just leave them open.

These Democrats and their voters are shameless.

When this mockery of a president can pick and choose which laws he and Holder will obey, certainly these men who fought for the freedom of three generations of living Americans certainly deserve the same latitude.

:: shutting off the “Panda Cam” at the National Zoo - which is already fully-funded by the Ford Motor Company Fund ::

Which tells me that that “Fedzilla” is actually using those contributions IN THE GENERAL FUND!

Wake up, America!

Your post brings to mind a quote from "Starship Troopers", when Professor (later Lieutenant) Rasczak was trying to get through to his dumba** students what it meant to be a citizen:

"All right, let's sum up. This year in history, we talked about the failure of democracy. How the social scientists of the 21st Century brought our world to the brink of chaos. We talked about the veterans, how they took control and imposed the stability that has lasted for generations since. We talked about the rights and privileges between those who served in the armed forces and those who haven't, therefore called citizens and civilians."

Even at their advanced ages, a bunch of WW2 vets with their M-1s would be cause for our mealy-mouthed, wussed-out so-called "leaders" to pi** their pants or skirts in fear. Yep, let's given 'em their weapons back...maybe they can instill a sense of what it means to be an American in our sheepish fellow "conservatives".

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

People need to STOP referring to the NPS Rangers at these sites as “goons”

Every indication is that the “goons” are looking in the other direction, and in some cases actively facilitating entry by the Vets in acts of insubordination against the President.

What we need is a Tiananmen square tank standoff type situation with a vet in a weelchair in front of a government vehicle. A little old guy blocking a huge military transport vehicle would make a great picture.

“Obama hates Americans.”

Short and succinct, those three words speak volumes. The Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut, the supposed capital of that territory once known as “the United States of America”, is the puppet of agencies and forces not of American origin, and he is dancing furiously now, trying to shift blame anywhere but where it should fall.

For being a “Constitutional scholar”, he sure doesn’t seem to understand very much of what is contained in that document. Maybe he was just studying it looking for loopholes.

National Parks Service runs it.

One onsite today said White House’s OMB ordered the closure and she and others were exempted from furlough to come and do just that today.

I wonder when some of them start to push back on these orders ?

Rand Paul is quick to shoot from the lip, but where is he when we need him, like on immigration.

The irony of our first “black” president’s actions seems to be missing from the discussion. The protest the WW2 vets are having is exactly what MLK advocated.
