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:

Disgusting. Since the organizers paid for their AstroTurf trip, they should also pay for the cleanup.

I hope they charge the organizers/sponsors for the cleanup.

Those are free lunches supplied by the organizers, along with free T-shirts, metro passes, etc. Can anyone say “Rent-a-mob?”

Well, when you have very trashy, low life slobs, what else can one expect.
Their little Marxist show was just trash throwing trash.

Disgusting human debris!

Those pictures are such a stark contrast to the Beck Rally
where people were picking up trash and things were left MUCH
cleaner, I’m sure.

Ahhh....the great unwashed left!

Geez, they even went at Hillary Clinton, who apparently isn’t lefty enough for them. Take as a whole, that was a pathetic demonstration.

...remnants of the FREE box lunches provided by the UNIONS....with the FREE T-shirts....with the FREE bus rides....with people getting paid “overtime” to attend...some were told attendance was “required”.......

...quite the contrary to Tea Party and the 9/12

Some Leftist scumbag thought so highly of Old Glory to treat it like trash.
