Posted on 10/07/2013 11:35:30 AM PDT by Nachum
A planned immigration reform rally will take place on the National Mall on Tuesday even though the site is closed due to the government shutdown. Organizers for the "Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform" were spotted Monday setting up a stage and equipment on the National Mall for the rally which will take place on Tuesday. A few scattered barriers around the park have signs informing visitors that the area is closed as a result of the government shutdown. Susana Flores, a spokesperson for the rally, confirmed for the Washington Examiner that the Park Service will allow the event to

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
This is another provocation. Obama is trying to spark an incident that he can then crush and use for political advantage.
So who will clean up all the trash the lefties inevitably leave after their rallies? The World War II vets, the Vietnam vets and all others who leave none, can be barrycaded out of their monuments, but not the trash strewing lefties.
Maybe we should just “forget” to fund the upper echelons of the NPS?
If we’re patient and let it build up long enough, Obastard won’t be able to “crush” it.
That sums it all up, right there. Obama doesn’t work for American citizens, but the lawbreaking Illegal Immigrant/Lobby.
Sick. Every American should now (if they can), use THEIR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT at the National Mall. If the Mall isn’t closed for Illegals, It sure as heck isn’t closed to Americans/American taxpayer.
I despise that man.
Violates my WW2 veteran dad’s rights under the fourth amendment - equal protection clause.
All animals are equal. Some are more equal than others..
The govt is closed for some but not others. Illegals get to use facilites but war heroes can go F- themselves, Right OBammy?
Equal protection clause...
Maybe restaurants and shops should refuse to serve people in National Park Service uniforms.
Time for a counter rally?
Hopey Changer has spoken.
But Taladega is closed for planned and paid for event...
Find your “representative” here and give them hell.
Just wrote “my” spenators and congress creep about this.
It is a PITA to fill in the form over and over and over again. You can also call their offices.
Wish these guys well also. Truckers plan to shut down crapitol on Friday. I really would like to see this whole country come to a screeching halt if I thought it would do any good.
There is a storm heading for the crapitol today. I wish it would do what we don’t seem to be able to do... sweep out the trash. There wouldn’t be much left if it did.
A little off topic, but I saw this on another board and thought it appropriate:
“Hey, if we declared the entire border with Mexico a National Park, would it be closed now?”
So let me get this straight..tomorrow there is going to be a crapload of illegals at the National Mall..HELLO..INS, ya think maybe just maybe you can show up and do your jobs..the illegals will be right there
“Obama is trying to spark an incident that he can then crush and use for political advantage.”
I am starting to believe this may well be true.
Aren’t there some vets/bikers suppose to show up tomorrow?
so obama will let thousands of illegals march on the “closed” Mall, yet he sends his gestapo to prevent elderly WWII heroes in wheelchairs from visiting the WWII monument?
he is a complete scumbag
So, in reality, national property is closed to only those folks Obama doesn’t like, which appears to be pretty much all citizens except illegal ones.
But they’re not citizens, the shutdown doesn’t apply to them.
Okay, so he’s poking the bear. The created drama over the shutdown is an embarrassingly obvious in-your-face shove. What reaction is he hoping to get from Americans? What do you think he wants?
Called my congressman (who has so far stood strong against ObamaScare and Hussein’s terrorist tactics) and let the staffer know about this, and the 445 million dollar gift to the corporation for “public broadcasting” (’rat propaganda wing) during the same time as the Amber Alert system being shut down. I asked if if we should perhaps “Occupy” these memorials which belong to Americans, since the left are such great supporters in occupying people’s private property to make their “points”, and since people representing those who aren’t even Americans are being given access to the memorials from which Americans are barred.
WWII vets? No se puede :(
My loathing of the illegitimate, bisexual, Marxist Kenyan Muslim Usurper requires medication.
I’m a little skeptical about this. If it is true this needs to get out. People will be outraged!
Passing it around the blogs,,we have to keep exposing the wretches living in the Spite House!
Just think of the horrible optics this will create (for the Obama team). for that reason alone I’d like to see it go on. I want to see pics of the illegal rally, with the Dems speaking,,,and put those alongside the snotty Park Rangers denying the vets access. Even more indisputable evidence how the Obama drama is pure politics!
In fact, I am going to suggest to Menendez that this thing get lots of press coverage and pictures to boot! Let them Dems hang themselves even further!
I hear ya.
As this article points out, criminal illegal aliens are exempt from the "closures."
Oh beautiful for spacious skies
For Amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America! God sheds His tears on thee,
Now crowned thy good with 'Bamas hoods,
From sea to shining sea!
is the Washington DC exclamation point on hundreds of actions across the country for immigrant dignity and respect. Tens of thousands will come to the National Mall to share stories of suffering and strength and demand passage of commonsense immigration reform. Confirmed speakers range from civil rights legend Julian Bond to Maryland mom Alicia Silva, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi to iconic singer Lila Downs. Starting with a somber reading of the names of people who have died at the border or been deported, it will close with a rousing march to the U.S. Capitol where hundreds of national leaders will take hard-hitting action to send a message to Congress - the Time is Now: America Needs Immigration Reform.
Speakers begin at 10th Street on the Mall at noon where activists will welcome world-famous Los Tigres Del Norte, a six time Grammy winning political ensemble considered the “Voz Del Movimiento” for its litany of songs focused on the lives of undocumented immigrants. Unete Con Nosotros
Unbelievable Chutzpah Ping.

Excellent idea. Time for another one of those “Million Biker Marches”, or something along those lines. Maybe a “Million Veterans March”. Sounds like a good idea to me. Let’s see if they can close off our monuments when the strength of numbers is against them.
Nope. It would hurt Mohammed’s feelings. Worse than a video.
The truckers protest, nationwide, is Friday, with a goal of a zero deliveries weekend.
The Truckers have asked that supporters also make it a zero purchase anywhere weekend; no supermarket, no department store, no Starbucks, no nothing!
Sure. The Destroyer locust king is "king" over the lawless ("illegals" kind of sez it all). He has no legitimate authority over the rightful citizens (WWII vets are about as symbolic of traditional, honorable, decent Americans as you can get). Therefore, King Zero has to persecute the lawful in order to delude himself into thinking that he is in control.
Obama is the face of tyranny and all manner of unclean birds and foul spirits. Evil emanates from the Blight Hut.
The National Park System should put a fence around the mall. That will keep those illegals out! /s
Let’s see: Is this a rally of all those who would like to see immigration reformed so that illegals are arrested and deported?
I thought not...Oh well, nothing to see here...
Everything’s closed ... except the gov’t golf courses for O’bammy and the monuments and public spaces for illegal aliens.
You can’t make this chit up!
This event could be easily sabotaged by handing out flyers advising the participants that they are setting themselves apart by being given special permission denied to the rest of the people, so they should not be surprised when the tables are turned and they get short shrift.
(A rough Google translate)
“Cuando usted se acuesta con perros, te levantas con pulgas.” — When you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.
Venezuela here we come !!!
Some animals are more equal than others.
How many illegals will be deported?
..but, but it’s the law!!!!!
So the gov is shut down to everyone but illegal aliens
