Maybe 1,000 showed up for the photo op. The marchers knocked down the barriers of the World War II memorial and at the White House. I wonder if there will be any arrests?
The REAL Vet march will be on Tuesday: Veterans groups to push to end government shutdown
Washington (CNN) – A military coalition including 33 of the nation’s leading veterans and uniformed services organizations on Tuesday will stage a major event in Washington to push for an end to the government shutdown.Of course, the Teapublicans have to upstage a true march with this petty, all white gathering.
Some of the major groups that will be represented include: The American Legion, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, Air Force Sergeants Association, National Military Family Association and Jewish War Veterans.
Here's the Million Vet March Facebook page link. You will find pics of small gatherings all over the country. I still did not see one person that is not white in any of the pictures reviewed. Amazingly homogeneous!
WASHINGTON (WJLA) - Thousands of protesters with the "Million Vet March" arrived at the World War II Memorial Sunday morning to protest the closure of the memorials during the federal government shutdown.
The protesters removed the barriers and entered the memorial, which has been closed since the shutdown began Oct. 1.
Senators Mike Lee - Utah and Ted Cruz - Texas as well as Sarah Palin were among the crowd that chanted “Tear down these walls” and sang patriotic songs according to local news coverage from WTOP, as the barriers were removed.
It has been reported by CNN that some of the protestors have made their way to the White House where they threw barricades aside and got into some pushing and shoving with the police on duty.
Sometimes I have to wonder if the DRAMA is planned in advance of Congress actions.
Here is a picture rich report:
Other than Cruz, this looks like an all-caucasion gathering looking for a fight.
Fox and Friends already covering the Million Vet March, begins at :36
(is the man with the white beard real or a cardboard cutout....?)
Lastly, this from Jonathan Turly blog
Ted has been brainwashed by his fanatical father his entire life. See the vid where Raphael Cruz began telling Ted he was an annointed one from the age of 4.
It Can Happen Here. Ted Cruz could be Buzz Windrop! A terrifying prospect.
