Obama Putting Up More Barricades at World War Two Memorial This Morning
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 | Kristinn

Posted on 10/02/2013 6:41:16 AM PDT by kristinn

The Obama administration is adding more barricades at the World War Two Memorial in Washington, D.C. this morning, according to reporters on the scene.

The reinforcements are being put in place apparently to prevent a repeat of yesterday when WWII veterans aided by several Republican Congressmen pushed aside barricades to visit their memorial.

Buzzfeed got no response from the White House last night when queried about the administration closing the memorial to veterans.

A report last night claimed that the Park Service would arrest veterans who attempt to visit the WWII Memorial.

This will ultimately be Obama’s Birmingham dog moment.

The is an opportunity for some killer 'optics' here.

This monument is the place we can win this thing and demonstrate the nature of this administration for the nation to see.

For being shut down, these government employees seem to be working awfully hard to keep the vets away from a public place.

Apparently they have enough money to pay for the people who are putting up the barricades.

I know WWII vets—My Dad happens to be one—Pacific Theatre.

Were he able to travel, he would go to the memorial solely to be arrested by the NPS “Police.”

I’m sure Sen Cruz will be the first to break through the barriers, if it is possible for him to get there, it is very hard for this one man to be everywhere all the time, but he is doing a great job of it...

The time has come for some serious civil disobedience.

Everyone within 100 miles of DC needs to go visit that memorial this weekend. Help push the wheelchaired veterans through the barricades. Time to take back this country and who better to lead the fight than WWII veterans?

D Day for the Tea Party rebellion has arrived.

If they are really going to arrest them, the vets should line up in a single file. Then enter, one after another. Each awaiting the arrest of the person in front of them.

How many vets will actually get hauled away?

And what are the “optics” on that? My guess is that no one will get arrested. And the government will look like fools.

Too bad we cannot land on Liberty island. It would be fun to see people getting arrested with the Statue behind them.

If military veterans banded together for a march on the WWII memorial like the 1932 Bonus March, what would Obama do?

This just cries out for a Group of WWII vets, a supportive Congressman and a camera crew to make the attempt today.

Could this be a Wellstone Memorial redux moment?

As others have said, the WWII park is open 24/7 and only staffed part of the time, so I don’t see why it needs to be shut off from the public.

Oh yeah, go for it you Nazi bastards. The image of park police arresting WWII veterans, many in wheelchairs, on the orders of the Nazi dictator would play very well. That is great imagery.

Ditto! I wish the biker and trucker rides through that cesspool were going on right now, too. They'd surely give the WWII vets a *hand* with removing these 0bamacades.

Funny how they have enough staff working to set up the barricades, but not enough to let people tour the memorial, which, for all practical purposes, could be none.

Omg, what a petty piece of crap Obama is. Do all the RATs really support this crybaby tactic?

I'm surprised he hasn't tried to claim the highway system to barricade yet.
