    Vets March on DC Memorials & White House, Met By Riot Police

    American Military News |

    Thousands of veterans marched on the veteran memorials, namely the World War 2 memorial in Washington, DC, with Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee and also Sarah Palin joining the veterans. They tore down the barriers and chanted “Tear down these walls!”. Vets were protesting the closure of the memorials during the government shutdown and the White House’s attempt to proactively keep vets out to make the shutdown “more painful” than it has to be for ordinary Americans.

    After WWI some vets marched on Washington... how did that work out? IIRC the regular Army obeyed their commanders and joined the police in clearing away the vet's camp city.

    Actually, not me. Though I'm not thrilled at how Obama turned out as a president, as a legislator he was always at the forefront in caring for vets.

    Well as of now he is locking vets out of their memorials and he even delayed death benefits. Can it get worse than THAT?

    I can't believe that law enforcement made the mistake of thinking this was a liberal protest.

    HE didn't delay anything.

    I have little sympathy for these people in this situation. These veterans are being exploited by opportunistic politicians, and they're breaking the law. National Parks and memorials have been closed during previous shutdowns; this is nothing new. Being a veteran doesn't give you the right to break federal laws. MacArthur and Patton had to teach this lesson the hard way to the Bonus Army back in the 30's.

    Obama like the Democrat Party only care about getting the veterans votes. After seeing that Obama in 2012 couldn't even get 20 % of the military vote and not much better with getting the veterans vote, Obama has put vets on his hit list.

    Why do you think Obama allowed illegal aliens to have a rally last Tuesday demanding amnesty, citizenship and free stuff on the closed National Mall ? Because Obama knows the vast majority of these leeches would vote the Democrat ticket.

    There were several, which one are you referring to? Some were very peaceful.
