Police Remove Veterans from Vietnam Memorial

October 5, 2013

The Obama administration continue their dirty political tricks and we are  more than happy to expose them.  Today, DC Police were ordered to remove  tourists and Vietnam War veterans who were visiting the Vietnam Veterans  Memorial Wall on Friday.

The Weekly Standard reports:

After one group of veterans went around the barricade, “the park ranger  told them the wall was closed, “NBC’s  Mark Seagraves reported. “Later another group of vets showed up and moved  the barricades. At that point, the memorial filled with vets and tourists.  That’s when police came and moved everyone out.”

The Vietnam  Veterans Memorial Wall is a black granite outdoor wall on which the  names of the 58,272 service members who died or were unaccounted for during  the Vietnam war are inscribed.

It takes more manpower and costs the government more money to close down  an outdoor wall than to let people walk past it and pay their  respects.

vietnam+memorialYou’ll  recall that World War II veterans broke through barriers to enter the open air  World War II Memorial.

It seems that Barack Obama is merely playing political games with the memory  of our veterans. It is shameful!  It is a disgrace!  It demonstrates the real  underlying nature and heart of this man.  He is no president.  He is a usurper,  a godless usurper.  He cares nothing for America or those who have served her  faithfully.

A memorial that requires absolutely no security is now being given special  security, in what we are told is a government shutdown.  As John McCormack  commented, “It takes more manpower and costs the government more money to close  down an outdoor wall than to let people walk past it and pay their respects.”

That’s just it though, isn’t it?  Obama’s actions aren’t about what is frugal  or best for the American people.  It’s about how bad he can make things look for  political gain.  I’m guessing there are plenty of Vietnam veterans with some  fight still left in them to take on the Marxist-in-chief.  After all, Barack  Obama represents everything those WWII veterans and the Vietnam veterans fought  against

ABC adds:

Like the hundreds of World War II veterans who came to National Mall to  pay their respects this week, a group of Vietnam veterans found a barricade  blocking the way to their memorial Friday. News4’s Mark Segraves said two  U.S. Park Service Rangers manning the gate asked that the group respect the  government’s shutdown but moved aside.

Segraves described the exchange as pleasant and respectful.

The veterans then moved the barricade and walked down to the wall to pay  their respects. But a flood of tourists followed even though the memorial is  closed to the general public.

“The consensus among the group of Vietnam veterans was we’re going to go  anyway. We’ll go through the barricade,” North Carolina resident Reid Mendenhall  said.

U.S. Park Police arrive to the scene, asked everyone to leave and put the  barricade back into place.

Congressman Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) told this US Park Service Ranger and told  her that the USPS should be ashamed of themselves for turning the veterans away.  Neugebauer’s comments came on Wednesday regarding the WWII Memorial, but I  think the same thing applies to the Vietnam Memorial as well.

The thing about this is, as I’ve pointed out before, under the government  shutdown during the 1990’s, not one of these memorials was closed.  This is not  only political friends, this is personal, and Barack Obama is shoving the noses  of our veterans in it.  Even worse, as John DeMayo points out, behind  the scenes Obama and his thugs are inciting government employees against the  people.  What will our next course of action be?

  1. These police are violating The law and are NOT upholding the Constitution and Bill of Rights but what makes it very bad is the fact they know damn well that is what they are doing

  2. we need to stand there till we outnumber the police and barge on thru…… will they really shoot us for doing that or will they arrest a few of us….. maybe if we have 10-20-30 times as many as there are police, the police will back away and let us go….. plenty of the police are veterans anyway…..
