A peaceful protest converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall today, Sunday morning. Members of the so-called “Million Vet March” descended on Washington, D.C. (becoming known as the District of Corruption), to protest the Obama administration’s decision to close the city’s public memorials.
The ‘Barrycades’ are down according to WTOP, 103.5 FM and the crowd chanted “Tear down these walls!” and sang “God Bless America” as well as other patriotic songs as they entered the memorial, which has been closed since the government shutdown that began Oct. 1st.
The police showed up in riot gear amid angry shouts from the protesters –
“You are public servants
You took an oath
You work for us!
Protect the people
We’re Americans in a peaceful protest
Just how far are they going to push us? And just how much can we stomach?
