Thousands of Americans have stormed the World War II memorial, as well as other barricades monuments in DC.

Occupy America! Thousands of Americans have stormed the World War II memorial today, as well as other barricaded monuments in DC.

More here. The first link above says that there was some “pushing and shoving” between protesters and the police at one location. This is not confirmed however. This story says the protesting vets were carrying the barricades to the White House.

Update: It appears the veterans are bringing barricades from all over and are using them to “barricade the White House.”

Despite a threat of arrest by the Obama administration, veterans from Ohio plan to visit the World War II memorial on Wednesday.

I suspect that the park service employee who said the vets risked arrest if they crossed the barricades regrets that statement. I also almost hope that the Obama administration does try to arrest someone, as such action will quite starkly illustrate how fascist the administration is behaving.

And then there’s this story: ‘Gestapo’ tactics meet senior citizens at Yellowstone.

Vaillancourt was one of thousands of people who found themselves in a national park as the federal government shutdown went into effect on Oct. 1. For many hours her tour group, which included senior citizen visitors from Japan, Australia, Canada and the United States, were locked in a Yellowstone National Park hotel under armed guard. The tourists were treated harshly by armed park employees, she said, so much so that some of the foreign tourists with limited English skills thought they were under arrest.

Read the whole story. It should make you ashamed.

The Obama administration is now beginning to reinforce the barricades at the World War II memorial to prevent access.

Why is this madness beginning to remind me of the Berlin Wall?

More Americans have to join them. These closures are offensive, unnecessary, and clearly a political ploy by the Obama administration. The public has to tell the government it can’t do this.
