Dishonored and Disrespected: Obama Disarmed US Marines at Inaugural Parade
Gateway ^ | February 10, 2013 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 02/10/2013 9:47:14 AM PST by george76

A new administration policy?

Barack Obama disarmed the US Marines at the Inaugural parade this year.

Dishonored and disarmed: Bolts are clearly missing from these Marine rifles during President Obama’s inauguration parade. This is an unmistakable insult to the honor of the Marine Corps

...

It’s not the first time the Obama Administration disarmed US Marines at an event.

In March 2012, US Marines were told to leave their weapons outside the tent during Leon Panetta’s speech in Afghanistan.

It sounds as though hussein is afraid of how own troops. I hope that he has a reason.

They refused to follow the Undocumented Tyrant’s
demand that they first micturate on the US Constitution
and then pledge allegiance to the Moslem Brotherhood.

And paranoid.

This is not a new policy. When the University of Delaware ROTC drill team marched in an inaugural parade in the 1960’s, the bolts had to be removed from their ‘03 Springfields.

Probably not a bad idea since, like me and thousands of others, they are sworn to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic and have been trained to kill Communists and radical Islamists.....

That oath to “...support and defend the Consitution against all enemies foreign and domestic...” taken by the Marines seems to be a bit of a problem for Double-O bama

The Marines pledge to protect from enemies foreign and domestic so 0bama probably had good cause to disarm the guys right here in America.

Very poor reporting, if you can call it that. The key question is this: Who gave the order to remove the rifle bolts? That shouldn't be too hard to find out.

Obama might have given the order. Or he might have simply approved of the order. Or he might have been completely unaware that the order was even given.

Leftists of all stripes fear the military. It is a natural political law. When in power they work hard to neutralize the military, emasculate it, until they feel they have staffed it with 100% "reliable" officers and have the units infected with political officers who do not answer to the formal command structure whose job it is to stab erring officers in the back and eliminate unreliable toops. Even then leftists do not trust the military and the leaders always have another quasi military built up to do the real tasks of the leftist rulers. The Soviets had the MVD and the KGB. Hitler had his SS. Achmedinejad has his QUDS. The military is kept at arms length even while maintained in existence as the force that must be called on to actually deal with other countries' militaries.

O'Lenin does not trust the military and has emasculated it with his admittance of open homosexuals and weakened it by placing women in combat. He is purging the officer corps just as Clinton, another Leftist, did and as Carter did. He fears the military will intervene against him. That fear is surely misplaced but he is a Leftist and cannot shake it.

Yes, considering the Marines' oath it's not at all surprising that Zero felt they needed to be disarmed!

However, I wonder if they have pictures of years before

When Obozo cuts 20,000 marines from the payroll, how do you think they will vote?

He must know how thoroughly despised he is. He deserves every second of fear he is experiencing. As arrogant as the O_b_tard is, he must understand that actions have consequences.

I was always told that bolts were removed for ceremonies so they wouldn't catch on uniforms. Always sounded like a weak argument because if movements are done correctly according to the the manual of arms, the bolt wont ever be be a problem.

No. It's been around for many years and several administrations.

But we don't want facts to get in the way of a good conspiracy.

Bolts were normally in place except in very rare cases. An inaugural parade was one of those very few.

Some rifle tosses couldn’t be performed because the missing bolt shifted the weight enough to make the toss dangerous. These were not part of the “normal” Manual of Arms. :=)

I feel that most of "his" troops would never back his war on Americans. That is why he is building his own army. This ass is a communists want to be dictator and millions of Americans just do not get it yet. Hopefully when they wake up it will be not too late to impeach him.

Early in the war in Iraq, my son was back filling for military police that had been deployed. W came to Montgomery and My son was one of the troops tasked with guarding AF 1 while it was on the ground. Most of the troops were not issued ammo. My boy and a few others had live ammo. I assume the most reliable troops had the ammo.

And there's going to be another 50 outraged replies to this thread that don't notice the several informed replies pointing out this was a long-standing policy.

There's a whole cottage industry blaming Obama for policies extending back through the GWB adminstration, Reagan, or even further back. This sort of nonsense destroys the credibility of legitimate criticism of Obama.

After Ft. Hood, perhaps they believe they’ve been infiltrated by muslims who would want to assassinate the POTUS or other high officials. It seems plausible to me.

You can bet your sweet bippy those Marines were not ASKED to be there but ORDERED to be there.

It has become quite obvious what Odumbo thinks of our military. Consequently, he is crapping in his drawers thinking one of them might just ‘off” him for what he has done to them. Shameful!

I think Hussein, knowing he is a fake Commander in Chief of our military, is afraid of the military having guns around him. His twisted mind thinks without a bolt on those guns, no military guy can hurt him.
