Police Remove Vietnam War Veterans At Memorial Wall

Via The Weekly Standard:

    Via William Jacobson, NBC’s affiliate in Washington, D.C. reports that police ordered tourists and Vietnam war veterans who were visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall to leave the memorial at one point on Friday.

    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.

    The Obama administration has been very selective in devoting resources to shutting down memorials.

Another open area you just walk into and through.  :thud:
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

A fact that I hope does not escape the average American....

Obviously cost has nothing to do with this, and hurting patriotic Americans and veterans has everything to do with it.

Is Obama actively trying to incite insurrection??
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

What I think he fails to grasp is the non-instant gratification mentality he is up against while his group is more likely to do something without thought of consequence.

Not just memorials, but MILITARY MEMORIALS, memorials to people who made it possible for this chooming, radical to become POTUS.  He really hasn't made it any secret he hates the military. :peeonobama:
