@michellemalkin @TwitchyTeam I'm at #vetmarch for million vet march in DC at WWII Memorial 5:06 AM - 13 Oct 2013
Citizens are taking to Washington, D.C., Sunday morning to protest the Spite Houses closing of the nations memorials. Twitter users are using #VetMarch and #1MVetMarch to spread the word and to provide on-the-scene reports from the Million Vet March. As Twitchy reported, Sarah Palin is attending the march as well.

How much is this stupid move on Obama’s part costing us? It would have cost nothing to leave this memorial open.
I just hope that a lot of these Veterans are Democrats who will vote to stop Democrats from occupying the White House for the next 50 years.
Makes my day.
Riot teams teargassing vets in front of WH, making arrests
I love the picture with the woman standing by one of the NPS Clown signs saying that due to the government shut, this NPS area has been closed except for FIRST AMENDMENT ACTIVITIES. What I’m seeing here this morning is THE MOTHER OF ALL FIRST AMENDMENT ACTIVITIES. Barry and the commie ‘RATS, as well as their NPS toads, are being introduced to the Bill of Rights.
Not true, according to a reporter calling in to this radio show, which I have never heard of today. All peaceful in front of the spite house.
Nachum, your thread just showed up on the first page of Gargle results w/search term #VetMarch !
A witness on Twitter.
Could be someone trying to stir up trouble? Just wondering. I no longer trust people to be truthful.
The internet is going to be used against us, I am afraid.
Another Twitter feed witness said they saw the park police using tear gas on the live video feed.
I would provide the link to the post, but Twitter doesn’t usually work with linking to posts.
I expect that the White House is ready for anything—it would take a Marine division to assault the Fortress-White House.
imo, when relaying tweets, best practice, imo, is to copy and paste the whole thing so source can be checked.
This is what the leftists fear the most: normal people showing they are no longer willing to be treated as sheep.
Ok, I will post the tweet. Not that the Tweet is worth much without a pic or a link. I have been burned a number of times with bad info. It is just so plausible that this will spin out of control though. I think the Spite House is itching for an excuse to beat the crap out of these vets.
In 1932 Veterans marched on Washington, DC in a similar way to the Veterans marching today.
For anyone not already familiar with the 1932 Veterans Bonus March it is worth reading about.
The 1932 Bonus march was comprised of about 43,000 marchers 17,000 World War I Vets, their families and supporters.
They camped in a shantytown called Hooverville.
President Hoover and his Attorney General ordered Army Chief of Staff General Douglas MacArthur to clean the Vets out of Washington.
MacArther sent Majors George Patton and Dwight D. Eisenhower in with regular Army troops and tanks to do the job.
All three ended up with their hands soiled by the blood of veterans and their families. Major Patton became General Patton and gained fame in WWII.
Major Dwight D. Eisenhower is the same man who became Commander of Allied Forces in WWII and went on to become USA President Dwight D. Eisenhower
They attacked the vets and fired on them killing at least one vet and injuring many more.
Then they set fire to Hooverville, injuring many more including some of the Vets' family members.
the final death tally is really uncertain as some of the injured died later of their wounds in various places around the country.
