Lawmaker says barricade of WWII memorial is 'Chicago thuggery'
FoxNews ^ | 10/4 | starnes

Posted on 10/05/2013 6:56:42 AM PDT by RummyChick

A group of Texas congressmen armed with wire cutters made their way to the World War II Memorial in Washington after they learned the National Park Service had reinforced the barriers blocking the site with wire.

“This is Chicago thuggery,” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) told me. “The president is trying to inflict the most amount of pain and suffering. This is not some bureaucratic mistake. This is Chicago thuggery. You try to make people hurt so they don’t resist what you tell them to do in the future.”

Of course people are not mere Skinnerian automatons. They have a spiritual side and know they need a God, however poorly they may conceive God.

Well at least in the midst of all this dung created by The Great One we find that there are a few real stand up men that represent us occassionally (though they could be flipped by an NSA file, death threats by the 0 administration, pulling of funding, payoff by the most transparent administration ever in the future).

Since Obama is obviously trying to inflict suffering instead of ensuring domestic tranquilty, Obama is committing another of his many impeachable offenses.

Let’s see the Parkies take down a member of Congress for wielding wire dikes. Get nameplates & badge numbers.

Parkies attack witnesses wielding cellcams - icing on the cake.

The Obozo and his thugs in the outhouse and park service need to realize that if they create/cause a Kent State incident with our vets. All hell on earth will descend on them and the rats in congress for the next decade!

Louie Gohmert is great. He’s always been there to support freedom at every rally I’ve been to in DC.

I wish he was my congressman.

Obama can order his goons to barrycade the open-air monuments but he can’t secure the Mexican border against illegal aliens.

We used to call the Republican Party the "stupid party". It looks like we finally have some pols who might be Mensa material and patriotic, while the dems have a big problem.

The problem is that if enough dems don't go along with the 'pubs in stopping the vindictive stuff, they're under Obama's control. They'll never get the party back from Obama's storm troopers.

Just an opinion....this Biden vs hillary for the next nomination is a smokescreen. Obama has another Chicago thug or other buddy who will step up and get the next nomination. EVERY dem politician except Obama's faves has been rendered impotent by going along with this.

How far is the Chief POS going to get before someone gets the you know whats to impeach or otherwise remove him? He can’t be this damned stupid to think crap like this makes him look good? Seems like he’s crossed his own red line, to the point where its obvious he doesn’t care what anyone thinks - it’s going to be his way or the highway. Dangerous, IMO. Typical narcissistic psycho behavior.

Even Beck is pushing Louie to go for the Senate.

The fact that Louie has not said a peep about it tells me its under some consideration.

Although I would love to have Gohmert as Junior Senator to Cruz, his absence from the House will be sorely missed.

I read on another thread that Barry is keeping the front barred but is allowing the vets to go through the back of the monument without opposition.

In other words, it’s all about the visuals. He doesn’t want to risk having his forces being shown clubbing elderly vets, but he wants to maintain the impression that he, his sacred majesty, has been obeyed.

Also, apparently some parkies disobeyed him the other day and simply pretended they didn’t see what the elderly vets were doing when they came in. I feel bad for the people who work for the NPS, because my experience has been that the majority of them are good Americans and I doubt that they’re enjoying this either. Barry may be afraid of a rebellion in the ranks if he pushes this too far.

Doesn’t seem “his” side is paying a lot of attention or maybe they are looking the other way because of the obvious bad moves “their” leaders are making.

Well, that's good news

Pretty screwed up that two Congress critters need to be there to make sure our WWII veterans are treated with dignity and honor instead of political pawns in Obama's game..

Words fail me to describe how I loathe that POS...

Stack barriers, use the strongest bike lock/chain combination you can afford to lose and chain the stack together. Repeat until all barriers are neatly and safely stored so that none of them will be stolen (or used again.)

If ten people kick in ten bucks each, that’s a stack of 10 barriers out of the picture.

Obama is going to ALLOW them to go in the back? No real American would try to treat fellow Americans this way.
These are WWII Veterans! They will damn well go in the front! It is their memorial! They put their lives on the line so this non-Veteran President can make them use the back door? In America?

In Lithuania there is a hill of crosses representing sons of Lithuania who disappeared in various conflicts since the 13th centuray. The Soviets repeatedly removed the crosses and even bulldozed the hill. The people just kept putting them back up.

I hope the people of the US follow this example of civil disobedience regarding our national monuments.

My wife and I visited the memorial in 2008. It’s beautiful. Water is the central motif in it all. There’s a large reflecting pool in the center, as can be seen in the right hand corner of this picture. On the north/south axis are two structures titled ‘’Pacific’’(seen here to the left) and the other is “Atlantic’’ representing the two theaters of the war. Along the base of each, inscribed in stone are the major campaigns and battles of each of theater along the rim of a half-moon shaped fountain. Here the water is roiling and tumbling, suggesting the roar and chaos of battle. The most poignant use of water that I saw is on the western wall, seen at the back of this picture. Where dark and light grey granite is the major material, along this western wall white marble is used. Here gold stars, each representing in denomination adding up to the 435,000 American dead of WW2. Here the water falls over this area in a very thin, very quiet shimmering way suggesting reverence. The face of this wall is to the east with the sun light glinting off the gold stars. It’s simply breath taking and very moving. My wife’s late father served with the 4th. Marine Division in WW2. I had a number of uncles, all gone now, who served in Europe and in the Navy in the Pacific. I could kick the crap out of this piece shit punk ass president from here to next Tuesday for what he has done concerning this memorial and what it means to these veterans, their families and all Americans for whom a generation of young men and women fought so heroically and courageously for. Obama really is the embodiment of what decent, hard-working and law-abiding black people mean when they use the n word.

Louie would fare much better with voters of like mind rather than trying to swim upstream against all the RINOs and closet RINOs in the House.
Cornwallace will not be easy to beat in the Primary, he has lots of $ and backing from the DoWorst TexGOPe and the national GOPe.

So long as we keep the House and gain the majority in the Senate in 2014 and then the POTUS with Cruz in 16, it will be possible to shame any Speaker into towing the line.

They should pull every gate down from all over the country and send them to DC. Nthey they should surround the white house with them. And wire them together.

Then form a human chain around the white house.
