NBC: Police Remove Vietnam War Veterans at Memorial Wall
weeklystandard.com ^ | 10-5-2013 | JOHN MCCORMACK

Posted on 10/05/2013 11:27:18 AM PDT by servo1969

Via William Jacobson, NBC's affiliate in Washington, D.C. reports that police ordered tourists and Vietnam war veterans who were visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall to leave the memorial at one point on Friday.

After one group of veterans went around the barricade, "the park ranger told them the wall was closed," NBC's Mark Seagraves reported. "Later another group of vets showed up and moved the barricades. At that point, the memorial filled with vets and tourists. That's when police came and moved everyone out."

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall is a black granite outdoor wall on which the names of the 58,272 service members who died or were unaccounted for during the Vietnam war are inscribed.

It takes more manpower and costs the government more money to close down an outdoor wall than to let people walk past it and pay their respects.

The Obama administration has been very selective in devoting resources to shutting down memorials.

I’d like to know why Americans let them accomplish that.

If they’re trying to motivate the Tea Party, they’re doing a great job.

“THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING!” Americans have taken on the gestapo before. We’ll do it again. You can tell a lot about a country from the way it treats its war veterans.

Boulder Colorado started buying “open space” which they closed to the public. This is a wet dream of liberals to close down the sites of people they hate.

Take every one of those damn barriers down, haul them over to the White House and throw them over the fence. If there are any wood or plastic barriers, pile them up and burn them!

Vietnam vets need to storm and OCCUPY this memorial, TODAY!

World War II vets and their families need to storm and OCCUPY this memorial, TODAY!

The Obozo Gestapo can not and WILL NOT arrest hoards of vets and their families.

Dont worry, after the GOP caves like they did in 1996 they (IRS employeees) will get paid overtime (more of our $$$) to catch up their work, just like they did in 1996, and Rush will spin it as a big GOP victory, just like he did the past almost 20 years

Well, maybe, just maybe, it's time for some flippin' violence. If not now, when?

I say resist, fight, make them use violence. It'll be on TV in 10 minutes if they do. And then they will need to prepare because there are millions of us here in flyover country that are tired of this intimidation and unconstitutional government tyranny. I'm willing to take it to the next level.

Obastard has been using the past five days to prove it's not about the money. We've paid out far more money to lock up the Monuments than it costs to leave them open. It's about Obastard exercising his power...And he's doing it all over the country. There's an 1,100 square mile area of ocean in Florida they say is "closed."

The regime is escalating the outrage. This is not going to end well.

I don’t think that would end the way the progressives expect. Unlike 1930s Germany, they never actually disarmed us.
