President Obamas visit to Delaware was not met with all cheers and admiration as his photo-op shots might suggest. BuzzPo reports that a group of 25 veterans decided to show Obama just what they think about his poor treatment of Americas veterans. Eric Reed, founder of Gun Rights Across America, spoke with the organizer of the back turning protest, Martin Nicholson.
A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corp, Nicholson gives the command to around 25 veterans to turn their backs to Barack Obamas passing motorcade at approximately the 35-second mark. (Watch Video Below) They remain with their backs turned until the 1:08-mark.
Reed reports on his conversation with Nicholson, who also happens to be the Northeast Regional Coordinator for Gun Rights Across America.
When I spoke with Nicholson earlier today, he stated Obamas not doing anything to protect our veterans. He wants to ban the importation of the AK-47 rifle, but he refuses to help our veterans who were shot at by them! Nicholson also advised that hell be at the Delaware State Capitol Building with a group this Saturday, to protest the large amount of illegal aliens flowing into Delaware.
I think I speak for all of us when I say, I cant ever remember a U.S. President who has disrespected our men and women who have honorably served the nation they love, more than Barack Hussein Obama. Seeing our veterans awaiting the passing motorcade to send that man the message of their disapproval can be summarized with one epic phrase: OOH-RAH!
Delaware Online reports that Oath Keepers and Three Corners Patriots were also present to participate in this protest. Believing that Obama should be focusing on other issues around the country, like the VA Scandal and the illegal alien invasion, rather than being in Delaware for a photo-op, protest organizer Nicholson said, We feel hes turned his back on us veterans, so were going to turn our backs on him as he drives by on his motorcade to show our appreciation that he does not care about us veterans.
Participant John Stroud added, Take care of your own first. There are Americans that need help first. I think there are more important things you could be doing than coming to Delaware to look at a bridge.
Obama Visit to Delaware -071714
I wish another camera showed all the men spinning around. It would have been a lot more effective for lol.
I’m waiting for the entire public, congress, and press to do the same. I said it over a year ago. It’s an appropriate mechanism of free speech toward this president. Anything else will get you arrested.
The videographer could have selected a better position to archive the event.
On July 23 2012 in a speech to the VFW in Nevada Obama said to veterans “I’ve got your back”.
I think we’ve finally found a case where this guy wasn’t lying!
Wish I could have been there too!
Of course the news media simply ignore this kind of thing now, because they realize that if they ignore it it never happened.
Wow what an entourage! When I saw Bush in Spfld, MO, there were like 3 cars. The grand zero needs extra protection. I thought nothing would happen to him unless God allows it.
The color guard idea is perfect. There should be thousands of people every time he goes out.
Long overdue... Hopefully the majority of the population will begin to do the same.
Been better if they’d mooned the asshole.
23 vehicles and 10 motorcycles to protect the dictator. That’s about right - if you are scared.
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
Agree. I met President George Herbert Walker Bush, and he had 3 cars, including his own.
He came out, shook hands, held little kids, accepted hugs, it was incredible.
Obama is a narcissistic fuhrer.
My God, how far we have fallen as a nation.
