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.

If these marches on DC keep going...and the shut-down keeps going...I really expect the regime to REALLY overplay its hand with a violent over-reach.

And then its on like donkey kong.

I bet at the end of the day the Vets will leave the place cleaner than the illegals did.

Those memorials, the land, the SpiteHouse and all belong to the American people; not the government.
