One Nation Rally Trashes WWII Memorial and Arlington Cemetery's Memorial Bridge
Saturday, October 2, 2010 | Kristinn

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.

Video of the trashed WWII Memorial by YouTube poster Hostagehoosier. H/T HotAirPundit

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:

So I guess all those empty boxes mean they got a bus ride and a free meal?

Wow! How disgusting! They have no respect for anything, do they?

It’s not quite as bad as the inauguration, but it’s no after TEA Party, for sure!

Thanks for the ping and the post.

I had wondered how it looked after their unionized “get together”.

I EXPECT it will be even worse at Jon Stewart's rally. I'm certain of it.

As the pictures roll in it is obvious that the “national media” lie to Americans about what goes on here in WDC. We went to the 9-11 rally, the July 4 rally and the Beck rally here. There are significant differences in the crowds in both size and demeanor. The TEA party rallies are respectful of the area and of people whereas these communist/lefty rallies are full of angry people who disrespect others and the property they stain. Wake up America! Vote! Vote DIMs/LIBs out. Vote and convince others to vote. If you want America to devolve into what you see at these Moonbat/Asshat rallies, sit home and don’t vote.

This will be a fight to the death, as these bots have been brainwashed to do the dirty work for the elites. These red-shirted clowns really believe that once the “revolution” has placed the reds in power that they will be among the chosen ones...far from it, they will be the slaves just like us...and wonder how it went down...

Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen who are Freepers,

It is quite apparent that, in this country, at this time, those that remember ‘the Castro red shirts’, are probaly having a temporary mind fritz, at the sight of these punks in their ‘Young Communist League’ shirts.

There are many servicemen who have given their lives, during the Cold War, in the fight to stem Communism. These pukes have just defecated on that memory.

It is with great reluctance, that I state this: “We may see a battleground America, to rid ourselves of these fools. Sometimes, to get rid of a tree, you have to uproot the stump!”

Long live the Republic!

Thanks for sharing this. It’s a disgrace & a slap in the face to all our WWII vets - my dear Dad, included. He was fortunate to visit th memorial before he passed away 4 years ago.

What did the grounds look like after Beck’s event last month?

I liken the contrast to what the BEST of America has to offer, compared to what the worst of America truly has on their plate: Absolutely no interest in what is best for the American people.

Yes, “work” itself is very compartmentalized, organized, and strict rules apply as to who may do what, when, and how. The cleanup folks might have even gotten some overtime out of the job.

I was at 9/12 last year and this year ... when we left, it was cleaner than when we arrived. This does make a statement. This is how these people would like our whole nation to look ... like a 3rd world country.

The same will go against Allred and her RAT treason against the voters in CA. Allred is out to trash Whitman in order to save her leader Moonbeam Brown. The RATs prefer their tactic of personal destruction over allowing the voters to decide.

Now is the time to turn the tables on the enemies of freedom and expose their dirty laundry.

You know you are absolutely right. The first thing to go when Dictator Obama takes over will be the labor unions who do not bow down to him and do his every bidding. And....God forbid if any American, White, Black, Hispanic, Oriental, Asian, etc. differs with him. Off with their heads. You know that is the “Muslim” way!!! Shades of Mao, Mussolini, Stalin, Chavez, Castro, Idi Amin, and....of course Adolf Hitler. These idiots with their hands out do not have a clue!!! They just want more of that “free” Obama “stash”. Man, what a picture for Americans to behold yesterday. Ya think any folks on our side got the message yesterday as to what is to come if the Democrat Party and POTUS Obama continue to reign. I certainly hope so. But....we shall see what America is made of come November 2, 2010!!! Remember In November!!! Vote to totally destroy the entire Democrat Party. There is no such human being in existance known a good, loyal Democrat. They are all traitors IMHO!!!

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.

I'd like to know how much 'walkin' around money' each of them got...

These human waste provided tons of video to use against them between now and November 2nd. We must have Americans with the cajones to use it and use it 24/7.

Spine, guts, and gonads are in short supply. If we are to stay free and, if we are to provide a future for our children and grandchildren, spine, guts, and gonads better be found ASAP. If not, bend over America and kiss your rear goodbye.

Look no further than Germany 1933 to see your future.

"Look no further than Germany 1933 to see your future."

You are so right. I've been saying that since even before Obama was elected--he was always Hitleresque. Very scary, for those of us old enough to remember when the stories started coming out of post-war Europe.

Those boxes served two purposes.

Once the free lunch was consumed, the participants could then remove and store their brains in the box while they attended the rally...

Socialist rally? No brain required.

The sad part? It looks like some of them neglected to pickup their brains when they left.

I was in the library today, and came across a book: “Sieg heil! : an illustrated history of Germany from Bismarck to Hitler”...

It was full of hundreds of pictures from the early twenties onwards that I had never seen, and the book filled me with dread. Too much like what I see today.
