Skip to comments.Americans Storm Obama Barricades at Lincoln Memorial (Video)
Posted on 10/12/2013 6:23:58 PM PDT by lowbridge
The US government has been shut down several times. What makes this shutdown different is that Barack Obama spent taxpayer dollars to erect barricades at national monuments to keep the American public out. He wants Americans to know who the boss is.
Today several hundred Americans stormed the barricades at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.

That’s the way you do it! Only time I wished I lived near DC.
How many of those people were Democrats who have a bellyful of these Democrat dirty tricks.
Obammy is probably now asking for his NPS Brownshirts to be equipped with AR-15s.
A FANTASTIC campaign theme:
“Under the Democrats; the Lincoln Memorial is closed; but the southern border is open”
” He wants Americans to know who the boss is.”
Uh, it’s “We, the people” and this fruit better figure that out.
Tomorrow, Sunday October 13, 2013, American Veterans will assemble on the Washington Mall in a Million Man march to protest President Obamas order to close the WWII Memorial, the Vietnam War Memorial, and the Korean War Memorial. President Obama has ordered barricades to be placed around these open air Memorials and has ordered his armed National Park Police to keep Veterans out of these Memorial grounds at the point of a gun. In doing this, President Obama has created a Bridge at Concord/Lexington Green moment, and I wonder why hes doing this, and why hes doing it at this time? In doing this, has Obama set the trigger for his Communist Revolution to commence on 10-13-13 ?
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor. This, of course, is the last sentence in our Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776 when selfless patriots risked it all for their country.
How many selfless patriots could one find in this country today who would take such a risk as did our Founding Fathers? We now have career politicians in our Federal, State, and Local governments who will do and say only whatever it takes to achieve office and then stay in office. This self-serving mindset continues throughout our career military leadership and our Federal workforce where, again, they will say and do only what is good for their careers and whats good for the country doesnt even enter into the equation.
Do you really think any of the National Parks Service (NPS) Police who are on orders from President Obama to keep American Veterans out of our National Monuments on the Washington Mall, but to permit a rally on the Mall by illegal aliens, will do anything that will jeopardize their careers? For that matter, if our Veterans resist, overwhelm the NPS Police and Obama declares Martial Law, do you really think our military leadership will risk their careers by refusing to fire on these American Veterans? I once thought they would surely refuse, but life has taught me differently; let me explain.
I remember back to War Zone C in 1966 when I was a U.S. Army Special Forces NCO assigned to a Special Forces A Camp on the Cambodian border in the Republic of Vietnam. When the weather was clear and intelligence reports indicated the Viet Cong werent in the immediate area, VIPs would occasionally helicopter into our camp for a visit. After our Detachment Commander had briefed them, they would usually stroll around our camp and inspire the troops before they departed. One day a visiting Colonel asked me, in passing, "Hows the war going Sergeant?" Im sure he didnt expect an answer to his inane question, but I gave him an answer anyway, and it was an ear-full. After he wiped the shocked expression off his face, he smirked and replied, "You just dont have the Big Picture, Sergeant." Then, he strutted back to his waiting helicopter, flew back to his big city Headquarters, and left me standing there scratching my head and wondering what he meant by his "Big Picture" response.
It took me a while to determine exactly what the Colonel meant, and when I did figure it out, it was a paradigm-shift that brought the war and the world into focus for me for the first time. That Colonel, and many other officers I served with in Vietnam, only saw the war as a once in a lifetime career opportunity that had to be milked for everything they could possibly squeeze out of it during the brief time they could take credit for its prosecution. As for the Colonel and his entourage visiting our camp, along with other Special Forces Camps along the border, I learned their only motive was only to earn Air Medals, as each time they landed in one of our A Camps, they logged it as a Combat Assault.
At first, it was hard for me to understand how these officers could fight a war and nowhere in their agenda would be a priority on closing with the enemy, destroying him and winning the war. History had taught these officers that when the war ended, the ride was over, promotions stopped, the Army downsized, and they would be out of a job. So their priority was to keep the war going until they received their stars and could retire as General Officers. As medals were a sort of insurance against losing their jobs after the war, there were large division sized operations run for no apparent reason other than to justify medals for their senior leadership. Theres no doubt in my mind some of these officers prayed to God every night and beseeched God to Please dont end this war before I get my stars.
I found many, but not all, officers in Vietnam to be career-oriented opportunists who only saw the war as an opportunity to enhance their careers, and they would only do or say whatever was good for their careers. In an officers day to day decision making process he had three basic elements to consider: Whats best for the Mission? Whats best for his Men? And whats best for his Career? When the war ended, I noticed that those officers who had given primary consideration to their careers in every decision they had made remained in the Army and those who had put the prosecution of the war ahead of their careers were caught up in the first Reduction in Force (RIF) and eliminated. Those officers who had protected their careers at every juncture continued to protect their careers, and by doing and saying only what was good for their careers, they rose to become the senior leadership of the Army.
In my day to day interactions with these career obsessed officers, I noticed that they considered us Special Forces NCOs to be feeble minded, and they didnt trust us simply because we were usually Mission Oriented and placed no importance at all on our careers. They couldnt understand how we could be so irresponsible that we wouldnt take care of ourselves above all else. If we didnt protect our careers, we wouldnt have one, and then how would we one day support our family, pay our mortgage, and send our children to college?
No, I dont think there will be many, if any, NPS Policemen who will endanger their careers and threaten their familys security over this. For that matter, I dont think there will be many, if any, Americans with a full time 8 to 5 job, a family, and a mortgage who will risk their familys security over this. And, of course, the 47% arent going to risk their welfare check, EBT Card, and Bama" Phone over this either.
Yes, we have become a nation of complacent sheep, and what the future holds for us is anybodys guess, but whatever it is, I doubt its the future our Founding Fathers risked it all to provide for us.
Thanks for sharing. Sounds like the ‘I was only following orders’ crowd you ran into. NPS too. There’s no fire in the belly in that kind, tho. I think We the People have had it. And tomorrow the Big Guns will be there, too, eh? We watch and wait.
Thank you Patriots. I am there in spirit.
We don’t need em to; lets make it go viral!!
They start shooting Americans for visiting OUR monuments, then I believe the rebellion may finally be sparked. Expect no quarter from the fascists.
Great Name for Commie Obama’s Insurance Ponzi Scheme!
Mind if I borrow with it?
Were you slogging in north Cambodia on that wonderous Christmas Eve when our most honorable POS, Sec. of State, made his star studded entry into hostile territory?
In response to your query, "how many selfless patriots could one find in this country..." That question should be asked by those Obamabots each time they lay their self-annoited privileged heads down each night. Change is a coming, as evidenced by those pissed off patriots throwing aside the barriers at the memorial.
Hmmmm. In 1967, I was a civilian member of an NSA team that rode a Huey up to the Special Forces camp on Nui Ba Den on an operation. Does that mean I’m authorized to wear an Air Medal?
