Democrats Pay Union Members to Protest World War II Vets
PowerLine ^ | October 2, 2013 | John Hinderaker

Posted on 10/02/2013 12:55:37 PM PDT by 11th_VA

It appears that the Obama administration is violating the First Rule of Holes. Yesterday the administration looked awful when it “closed” and barricaded the World War II memorial on the Mall. The memorial is, by its nature, open. There is nothing to close.

--SNIP--

...these protesters were marching towards the press gaggle and I was asking them to show their federal IDs to prove they were in fact federal workers. No one wore their federal ID and none would provide it to prove their claim.

Then, remarkably, a guy carrying a sign passed by wearing a McDonald’s employee shirt, which I noted. I then began asking them how much they had been paid to protest, at which point the guy wearing the McDonald’s shirt came back and admitted he had been paid $15 to attend the protest.

I would assume this won’t get any play in the msm because they’d be afraid someone would out the protesters.

I would love to see some of these paid protesters receive a well deserved beat down. Am I wrong to think this?

I’m a little confused. Are we talking about the FEDERAL government or the FERAL government?
I think this Korean Vet (USN) may be getting a little old.

I’m afraid I don’t really see the humor; when some young *sshole who’s enjoyed all his life long the freedoms paid for in blood and horror by our World War II veterans, accepts fifteen bucks to go out of his way to insult them, the world as we’ve known it is coming to an end.

Just my opinion, of course.

$15. The price of a quarter pounder with cheese, if wages are raised to employee demands.

Somebody needs to make a poster with a photo of the barricades at the WWII Memorial next to a photo of the obstacles on Normandy Beach. Then, put a photo of these phony Obama Nazis next to a photo of some WWII Nazis. That would sting.

The takers are out in force, the makers are all at work.

How repulsive to see the takers confronting the true givers of this great country, those who risked all and actually gave so much.

The difference between us the them couldn’t be more stark.

They are takers who all totally out only for themselves.

Democrats Pay Union Members to Protest World War II Vets

"World War II veterans come to Washington to see their monument, ... the Obama administration tries to block them by putting up barricades.

"When that blunder starts getting media attention, the administration doubles down by paying union members $15 to march around, waving signs and protesting."

Effing classless.

They didn’t have a permit to demonstrate on public property.

They should have been arrested.

The Rent-a-Mob crew may not know who these WW2 vets are, but a lot of us DO.

My WW2 vet father would have been well into his 90s by now, and I cannot imagine his disgust, perhaps even rage, at this punk president and his clumsy attempt to gain sympathy for the horrors of a government "shutdown" by blocking guys in wheelchairs from an open air monument.

Beckel mocked the WWII vets today. How I despise liberals. Gutfield called him on it. Yesterday Gutfield called him a bald faced liar. All Beckel said was “That’s a strong statement.”

Here is the video. As you watch it, try to imagine what public relations genius in the Obama administration thought that this would play well for the president and Harry Reid...

Obama's 'public relations genius' knew ONE TRUTH - that the suck-ups in the so-called 'press' would ignore the truth of this story. Yep, Obama's army of MSM butt kissers won't tell... they got a little secret and they've promised not to tell...

It is worse then that. The protesters are not even union members, the union members can't even be bothered to do their own protesting so they outsource it to nonunion suckers and don't even pay them minimum wage.

I'm surprised dems didn't get their goons to 'rough up' some of the old guys. I mean they're paying the goons for action, right?

Easy to take down an 80 year old hero - union goons could do the 'knockout game'... VERY popular game in heavy dem voting areas...

They're in luck - the press would NOT notice.... (they have that knack when it comes to one of their own)
