Skip to comments.One Nation Rally Trashes WWII Memorial and Arlington Cemetery's Memorial Bridge
Posted on 10/02/2010 7:48:29 PM PDT by kristinn
Video and photos taken today after the One Nation Working Together Rally concluded show that participants left significant amounts of trash at memorials in our nation's capital dedicated to fallen American servicemen.
The World War II Memorial on the National Mall, which is opposite the Lincoln Memorial where the rally was held this afternoon, had food trash and rally signs all around the granite seating along the perimeter of the Pacific side of the memorial. Colorful signs bearing the logo of rally co-sponsor SEIU are prevalant. Among the signs and water bottles strewn about is what looks like an uneaten Twinkie carelessly dropped at the edge of a fountain commemorating the hard-fought victory in the Pacific theater.
A man wearing what appears to be an SEIU t-shirt is seen sitting near the discarded signs.

Hostagehoosier also posted a video of trash left at the Lincoln Memorial here.
Memorial Bridge, which crosses the Potomac River between the Lincoln Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery, was littered with identical cardboard lunch boxes. The boxed lunches were given free of charge to union and NAACP members, along with free t-shirts, free Metro fare cards and free bus rides from across the country to the rally.Freeper Stratman1969 posted several photographs at his Marooned in Marin blog that shows the trash left on Memorial Bridge.
The trash was most likely left by these people as they headed across Memorial Bridge to the rally:
Looks like some dirtbag busted the corner off the stone bench that woman is standing on too.
They never do anything for themselves that someone else will do for them.
Grass roots activists spontaneously arriving in identical buses wearing identical shirts and carrying identical cardboard lunch boxes.
I think I read about a world like this when I was a kid in a book called “A Wrinkle In Time.”
So where did they ditch their flags - the free flags that were handed out with their free lunches? They've got to be laying around somewhere.
I suspected this would happen. I’m waiting for a picture of the Mall.
Also, it was clear from the video on TV that turnout was not as large as Beck’s 8/28 rally. I don’t know what the difference was but there were not as many people.
I EXPECTED it, and THEY didn’t disappoint.
Trash intrash out.
Maybe they were shedding?
“Those look like lunch boxes or something.”
Well, at least they were sort of neatly stacked.../s
Once again I have to “look for the union label” but this time reject the item.
This spontaneous rally of course was carefully planned.
How much did they pay SEIU members and the rest of the leftist radicals?
Note the Red shirts. Do they really believe their communist cause will win over the people?
Perhaps the talk radio circuit will pick up this story Monday.
These people really pi$$ me off.
Clint, is this what you were talking about?
Commie gray mass feeding units.
****ing pigs ! No respect for anyone’s property and these people expect to be served at a moments notice !
rent-a-mob astroturfers leave the remains of their free lunches behind.....
there really is no free lunch b/c our nation has been paying for these scumbags for years, and will be paying more for a very long time to come....
What would one expect from a bunch of RENT-A-COMMIE swine? These scum cannot even gather in one place without costing the taxpayer millions in clean up, repair and restoration. Send the bill to the DNC leaving their coffers empty with nothing to spend on their attack ads.
Trashed...you can bet on it.
Or burned. Good to roast weenies with for the commies.
Tis the one.
You should see all the commie, literally communist, socialist, literally socialist organizations, who sponsored the event.
Reported by the MSM? Don’t bet your bippy!
Wasn’t this guy really an Italian from Pennsylvania?
Think how big the mess would have been if they’d actually drawn a crowd!
Freeloading parasites not willing to pick up after themselves. All hate and no pride with this bunch.
That guy is from Italy.
a cigarette smoker too!
Thanks for the post.
We know what DUmocrat LIEberals mean when they claim to "support the war on terrorism"...
DUmocrat LIEberals leave no doubt about what they mean when they "support the troops"...
DUmocrats choose a leader who doesn't know how many states are in the union, nor knows how to "play along" to show the proper reverence for our nations traditions...
We know all too well what is meant when the DUmocrats claim to "love" the flag, the nation, or it's people....
It is all too obvious that they do not have one ounce of respect for the flag which so many fought and died for....
It is nothing more than a convenient prop when the time suits their need. We are left with but one conclusion...
I think I’ll throw up now.
Anyone up for GOE V if this trash shows up again?
I have sent this link along with the others seen on the forum to folks in my address list.I know some are Democrats who voted for this insanity but rue having done so and have asked questions trying to learn and are now just as vocal as we are here..just as angry....
I hope this mob in DC can be stopped..it is to our advantage now that they have come out of the closet to show who they are SOCIALISTS...MARXISTS AND COMMIES...Now we can call them to their faces just what they are. And it is about time our elected officials in DC do likewise.
This should surprise anyone? They did the same thing at the Immaculation Day gathering as well as their own Convention..
After they claim to care so much about the planet... ‘Yes they can’ trash anything they want.
Proof that the scum in DC today were human waste who are supporters of the Dictator in Chief.
What a bunch of Commie slobs!@!!!!
That’s what Hood Rats do.
That’s what Hood Rats do.
What’s with the red shirts? (As if I needed to ask!)
These were obviously groups summoned by their paymasters.
The problem is that the press and the government think they can ignore demonstrations by groups 10 times that size precisely because they aren’t organized paid groups.
A million + citizens show up at the Tea Party, spontaneously and paying their own way, and nobody gives a darn. A few thousand organized Marxists show up, not paying their own way and not spontaneously by any mean and - this is news?
One Nation=SEIU. Ironically, from the debris field left in their wake, it appears the folks who are paid to clean up behind others, refuse to clean-up behind themselves. Then, there are rumors some of them relieved themselves in the fountain.
Anecdotally, it has only been confirmed since then, as conservatives and liberals embrace very different mindsets about personal responsibility - mindsets that affect daily choices.
Remember the Mall after the inauguration? I was absolutely appalled. And I don’t appall easily.
This is despicable. But what else can you expect from ‘cRats?
"I can't throw this away! That's a union function and requires specialized government training, and I'm not a member of that union!"
I started performing that very mundane task at this place and my goodness, the proverbial fecal material hit the ventilation device! "Stop! You can't do that! That's a union function!"
As a result, I waited all day until someone came and did in five minutes what I could have done in five minutes. They wasted their money paying me to do nothing while waiting, and doubtless the union wasted much of their money. I saw in that experience a first-hand microcosm of the problem with our government and its waste.
I recognize those blue boxes with the handles that are piled up along the bridge in the photos. Those are the FREE BOX LUNCHES that the union thugs provide to their members after they receive their FREE bus rides to/from rallies.
We've been to enough big rallies in DC now that I know just what to look for: Clueless idiots wearing union colors (ie SEIU purple) walking around with clipboards, LOTS of buses filled with clueless unwashed moonbats wearing matching t-shirts and carrying matching union-printed signs - waiting to be told what to do. And of course those boxes with handles containing their free union-provided lunches.
Those are the FREE box lunches the stupid union thugs get from their unions - after their FREE bus ride to/from rallies... to eat once they put on their FREE union-provided t-shirts and collect their FREE union-printed and provided signs to wave at the rallies.
We've been to many big rallies in DC over the years... we see this all the time. Despicable, huh?
I remember being there at The Gathering of Eagles in 2007, and the bridge was covered with trash, dirty baby diapers, discarded posters, etc. after the moonbats marched over it. It was remarkable.
