Skip to comments.One Nation Rally Trashes WWII Memorial and Arlington Cemetery's Memorial Bridge

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:
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.
They scream and yell for resources then squander them, and leave us moral people to pick up the trash...
Pigs, Scumbags and Tratorous Misfits! They were Paid Whores for the Day! Disgusting! Maybe if we offered them free drugs, we could get them to move to some desolate land like Somalia?
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 Becks 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.
I am having very unChristian feelings about these morons, involving air-borne rotten eggs.
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.
LOL i heard the rally was full of commies and black blockers. Try to find some pics of those punks.
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.
I was there too! 3/07, GOE I. That was my 1st trip to DC. I will always remember the feeling of being surrounded by fellow patriots. I also went to GOEIII. That initial gathering cemented my involvement.
The irony speaks for itself.
More than likely this human waste were paid to attend and told to trash We The People’s property. These unwashed masses are the first to be targeted by a dictator’s regime once their usefulness is over. DNC goons and the Regime’s army of human waste in action??
