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

Trash in—trash 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.

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.

The meaning was clear when the DUmocrats said after 9-11 that they "LOVE New York"...

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...
