@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 House’s closing of the nation’s 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.

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.

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.

IT COULD HAPPEN AGAIN

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.

http://www.worldwar1.com/dbc/bonusm.htm

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.

George Patton, later a general in WWII, led the U.S. military forces agains **U.S. CITIZENS** to scatter these 1932 marchers. He used the flat end of his saber to strike **U.S. CITIZENS**!

The military has been used against U.S. citizens before, and I don’t doubt that the military would follow orders again.

In my considered opinion, we are very close to some sort of tipping point. Not sure what, but the spontaneity of this, combined with the fact that these are people who normally avoid civil disobedience, is worthy of some sort of note.

From what I have read over the years this is a fairly brutal practice and many Vets sustained severe injuries from these attacks.

When struck hard by the flat of the sword they suffered skull fractures, concussions, shattered bones and of course lesser injuries like lacerations.

By degrees, how close are we to a “Tiananmen Square” moment where the ‘whole world is watching’ as a DHS tank rolls over a wounded warrior while removing a barrycade at an open-air monument?

This is DC in 1971 when they arrested 13,000 Americans, maybe things will escalate.

"While protesters listened to music, planned their actions or slept, the authorities quickly moved in 10,000 Federal troops to various locations in the D.C. area, including 4,000 paratroopers from the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division. At one point, so many soldiers and marines were being moved into the area from bases along the East Coast, that troop transports were landing at the rate of one every three minutes at Andrews Air Force Base in suburban Maryland, about 15 miles from the White House. These troops were to back up the 5,100 D.C. Metroplitan Police and 2,000 D.C. National Guard troops that were already on the streets."

Big difference. The "protesters" were already proven to be a lot of violent slime. I lived through the sixties and watched the Chicago riots. The city had reason to fear.

That isn’t true at all, you made that up, the protesters weren’t violent.

The relevant point here is the biggest arrest in American history, 13,000, the massive presence of full combat troops, and the internment in camps for days, without charges and in some cases without food and bedding.

I what? Made up the part about the Chicago riots at the DemocRATic National Convention? You mean the ones I had law enforcement friends at? Or perhaps the riots at the NIU campus that my brother participated in?

Excuse me? I made nothing up. Did you know people in the SDS in Chicago? Do you know law enforcement who made arrests there? I did. Did you know people who were at Woodstock and running concessions there? I did. In 1971, nothing changed. It was the same group of jerks who are now ruining our country. The same ones who planned to take over our universities, create re-educatiion camps and sell us out.

I am done debating with you. Have a nice day.

Try to focus, if you want to post about the democratic convention of 1968 then do, but don’t get confused and think that was the Mayday demonstrations of 1971.

You directly addressed my subject of the 1971 DC mass arrest, the largest in American history, and said “”The “protesters” were already proven to be a lot of violent slime.”” which was false, they weren’t violent.

Remember the chicago riots during the “den” convention? I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. The demonstrators were throwing fecal waste, urine, molotov cocktails, and anything else they could think of, while calling the police “pigs”.

They also launched helium balloons in an effort to crash circling helicopters.

The May 4 New York Times reported: “The protesters … did succeed in disrupting the city’s normal functioning by impeding traffic and harassing government employees on their way to work, using as weapons trash, tree limbs, stones, bottles, bricks, lumber, nails, tires, rubbish bins and parked cars. … At the height of the disturbances, tear gas fumes filled the air over some of the city’s most famous monuments, streets and grassy flowered parks. Garbage cans, trash, abandoned automobiles and other obstacles littered some chief arteries.

Over the years, these same people successfully infiltrated all of our institutions, and now plan to use the police against us.

They continued their revolution, and now we see them deride and insult our vets, just as they did back then.

I remember how the media was creating a bunch of nonsense.

When it started, I was in Florida and saw an 11:00 news cast making it sound like DC was on fire and the paratroopers were going to be creating a blood bath.

I left about 30 minutes later to hitchhike to DC, as I read the papers and heard the news in the cars it sounded like I wouldn’t even be able to get inside the city because of all the crazy stuff going on, interestingly though, a businessman picked me up for my last ride into the city, I asked him about his calm and ease and he laughed saying that nothing much was going on in the city and that the media was just blowing up nothings.

When I got into DC I saw that he was right, it was calm and demonstrations were calm, during the weeks I was there, it was fascinating to compare the media reports and newspaper versions of things with the reality that you had actually witnessed, even the cops said that it was peaceful.

When I hitch hiked out of DC to head for Texas, I saw the same media phenomena that I had witnessed as I approached DC, the farther I got away from DC, the more radical and violent or potentially violent the coverage and imagery became, just as it got less so when I had gotten closer to DC.

One of the biggest acts of “violence” was at an intersection which everyone agreed was the media making up stuff, even the cops and locals said that some kids had broken their own rules and had tossed some garbage cans into the street, but seemed annoyed at the media portrayal.

You might remember the year before that president Nixon had gone out to mingle with the demonstrators and chat with them.

“Nixon says he woke up shortly after 4 a.m., went into the Lincoln sitting room, and began listening to a record of Eugene Ormandy conducting a Rachmaninoff piece. (Several already-released tapes of Nixon phone conversations feature classical music blaring in the background at rock n’ roll volume.) The loud music awakened White House valet Manolo Sanchez, and as Nixon looked out the window at a small knot of people gathering outside on the National Mall, he asked his valet if he had had ever been to the Lincoln Memorial at night. When Sanchez replied no, Nixon impulsively told him, “Get your clothes on, we’ll go down to the Lincoln Memorial!””

The violence of the 60-70s was real. My neighbors brother was a policeman in chicago during the democrat convention. It was violent, and the crowds threw at the cops tennis balls with large nails pushed threw them, bags of feces and urine and finally mayor Daly said shut them down. The press wrote it as a police riot against peaceful protestors, just like they do today for the left....I believe the Chicago 7 went to trial and made a mockery of the courts, and that was before the courts were full of commies and progressives...One ran for congress and was voted in, good old Liz Taylor married one and they all loved Hanoi Jane, sitting on a vietcong gun (between her legs). If you were not an adult during those times, your ignorance and lack of knowledge is showing.

After reading this I concede the argument to you. Certainly with the released articles you can see how easily one could be confused against the truth. I quoted the NY Times and was mislead.

Again with the 1968 democratic convention which was supposed to be violent and has nothing with the Mayday demonstrations of 1971 in Washington DC.

So many wasted posts because people just decide to rewrite a posters subject.

Read post 34, it isn’t about the 1968 convention, or claiming there weren’t violent demonstrations or even riots in 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s America, but my posts are about the 1971 demonstration in DC.
