I rarely listen to Glen Beck,but happened to tune in this a.m. just as he was praising Rep Louis Gohmert (R-TX) (who I happen to think is fabulous) and saying he’s been trying to get him to run for Senate against Cornyn.

Rep Gohmert came on and was at the WWII Memorial (he and other Pubbie reps(including Michelle Bachman and Steve King from Iowa) were there yesterday and removed the barrier for our wonderful vets). As he was speaking with Glen, there was singing in the background and Rep Gohmert said they were singing Amazing Grace (it sounded like he was a little choked up). Glen said let’s listen for a bit (beautiful song and beautiful voices, so, of course, I got choked up).

There’s another thread or 2 that says that Obama (probably his or ValJ’s designee)were sending in rangers on horseback today and anyone breaking the barrier would be arrested. I thought I heard Rep Gohmert say that no one was there.

I wish my Dad were still alive. He went up to be with God in 2002. He was a lifer in the Air Force and served during WWII, Korea and Viet Nam(was in Cameron Bay). My nephew has his hat depicting all 3. I’d be there with my Dad and while I’m not large and a female, I’d be happy to stand up to the Obummer bullies! Might be my 1st arrest, but I couldn’t think of a more worthy one!

NPS Rangers are among the good guys.

I think the “goons” are the people that Bambi hired to place the barricades.

The Park Service guys aren’t putting up the barricades. Those are the (probably union) goons of which they speak.

People need to STOP referring to the NPS Rangers at these sites as “goons”

Every indication is that the “goons” are looking in the other direction, and in some cases actively facilitating entry by the Vets in acts of insubordination against the President.


Many of the NPS Rangers are Vets. Yes, they’re looking the other way.

This faggot muzzie turd-face is getting hysterical with his flappings and flailings. What a loser. The asswipe is president, yet he's so petty and petulant that he behaves like a spoiled 3-year-old brat.

No wonder he has to steal elections and get opponents removed from the ballot... the scumbag has never accomplished a SINGLE THING in his life by the merit of his own effort, or by the work of his own hands. He's an elitist who believes he's owed these things, a child of privilege and entitlement by virtue of having been born half-black.

Truth be told, he's just a needy, unwanted bastard whose life AND presidency are both completely illegitimate. That he's also an anti-American fag is just in keeping with the rest of his sordid legacy.

Barack Hussein Soetoro O'Bunghole, I puke on you and your rancid progeny. May you contract AIDS from your gay butt-boy.

Reminds me of his tantrum in the rose garden when his gun control failed to pass

the scumbag has never accomplished a SINGLE THING in his life by the merit of his own effort

And therefore a perfect representative of his voters then. He is the ultimate parasite. Fancy vacations at the taxpayers' expense. A bone deep sense of entitlement as seen by how he acts when him whims are thwarted. Massively incompetent (can you spell Sytia?) Arrogant and narcissistic in that he has a completely exaggerated view of his abilities. In short typical black attitudes from the black grievance industry.

In this case it probably should be hands or maybe heads of the freaking hydra. In any case cooler heads will prevail. We didn’t defeat Hitler by out shoveling him people into furnaces. We need to be better than the despicable snakes we now face.

For those few who did the right thing, kudos. But for those who "just followed orders" and put up the signs and barriers and threatened vets with arrest, they deserve the opprobrium they get.

Thank you.

Blame the guy who gave the orders, not the government employees who are following orders.

I'd say something different if this were an illegal order (i.e., shoot the veterans), but so far, the orders are legal and we need to hold accountable the elected officials and senior appointed officials who gave those bad orders, not the worker bees. Some orders need to be obeyed, others need to be reported, and in this case, "reporting the orders" means telling the American citizens so we can get rid of bad elected officials.

That sort of tactic, i.e., having a sympathetic victim who tugs the heartstrings on both sides of the issue, was used by the leftists with groups like Vietnam Veterans Against the War. There is no reason conservatives can't use it, too.

Think like a community organizer. The other side does... and some of their tactics not only work, but are entirely appropriate to use. I really like this comment, which is spot on:

I do not understand. I cannot understand how that f***ing little maggot Obama can even look himself in the mirror.

I firmly believe that what we're seeing is the result of a bully not getting his way so now he's being nasty and spiteful. Why? Because he can.

Maybe if that same bully had received more of his education in the US, instead of Indonesia, he would have understood the importance of the WWII vets.

I tell you I despise this man so much that I am ashamed to share the same species designation as him.

But at the same time, I am also of the same species as our WWII vets, and I am proud.

Those are heroes. True honest to God heroes.

And to see them disrespected by this ******* piece of **** Obama makes me want to projectile vomit.

Yup, I know about the bonus army.

But it’s a different era and a different situation. I can’t imagine the outrage - physically violent outrage - that would erupt if this administration decided to employ police state tactics against geriatric veterans looking for nothing more than to honor old comrades.

I’ve seen the Patriot Guard in action. Also been to several Memorial Day “Rolling Thunders” (as a spectator) in DC. From the looks of this the Administration has figured out that having vets defy their petty, spiteful edicts isn’t creating the visuals or narrative they were looking for ... and have officially reopened the WWII memorial to them.
