In our latest shutdown update, we have to look at what our Democratic Senators have created by refusing to vote on any House-passed Continuing Resolutions.
Veterans cannot visit open air memorials, but Illegal Aliens can have a rally on the Mall?
I guess when it comes to the Democrat Party Generated Government Shutdown, the pain is applied to WW II and Vietnam Veteran, but illegal aliens are A-OK!
Nothing could be more emblematic of the Obama Regime than this. Even as it attempts to block off the open air World War II memorial to vets who traveled across the country to honor their fallen brothers, and other vets are chased away from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, illegal aliens are allowed to use the National Mall to protest the withering concept of American sovereignty:
A planned immigration reform rally will take place on the National Mall on Tuesday even though the site is closed due to the government shutdown.
Organizers for the “Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform” were spotted Monday setting up a stage and equipment on the National Mall for the rally which will take place on Tuesday.
Dozens of leftist congresscritters are expected to attend, including Rep. Nasty Pelosi and the corrupt, child-molesting Senator Robert Menendez. The event is sponsored in part by the ACORN-affiliated SEIU, which spent $27 million helping Obama to power.
Eight members of Congress were arrested during a Tuesday immigration rally on Washington, D.C.’s National Mall.
Several House Democrats sat in the middle of Independence Avenue and blocked rush hour traffic, according to the Star Tribune.
The representatives, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY), Rep. Al Green (D-TX), Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Rep. Jan Schawkowsky (D-IL) and Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), were then arrested by U.S. Capitol Police, spokeswoman Kimberly Schneider confirmed to TheBlaze.
The congressmen were charged with “crowding, obstructing, and incommoding” under D.C. Code 22-1307 and will be processed by the U.S. Capitol Police at 67 K Street, SW.
But, it’s OK to allow illegal immigrants and the SEIU (campaign contributors) to have a rally and visit. But, not only do they discriminate against veterans, they disrespect the fallen dead as well.
Last weekend, four members of the United States Army gave their all for our nation. As the families began to grieve for their loved ones, the Obama administration made their loss even worse by insultingly refusing to pay death benefits due to the government shutdown.
Normally, $100,000 is wired to the surviving kin within 36 hours of losing a loved one to cover funeral expenses and the loss of the service members paycheck. It also assists family members with travel costs to Delaware in order to meet the plane carrying the body of their fallen soldier. Shannon Collins, who lost her son, said
“The government is hurting the wrong people…Families shouldn’t have to worry about how they’re going to bury their child.”
This behavior from our goverment is unacceptable.
Ashley Peters lost her husband last weekend, and said
“It is upsetting because my husband died for his country, and now his family is left to worry.”
It would appear that the powers that be on the left are feeling some heat on this “disgrace.” Some of them, like Rep. Braley seem oblivious (he’s just mad his gym no longer has towel service), but some are taking it a little more seriously. Harry Reid said that this gratuity would “be restored, without any question.” We’re waiting.
This really shows the length to which the Obama Administration and the Senate Democrats will go to punish patriotic Americans, all while honoring those that break our laws, and blaming the GOP.
If they are getting trashed on a University Campus, then they are losing it big time. Can’t say anything else about it other than that.
People are realizing what we knew all along-that this POTUS is a petulant child-king.
Update (Language Alert): Wyblog gives his input on where all the water fountain handles went…
America, your president is an asshole. A petulant, childish, spiteful asshole.
In what looks like a spiteful move, the NPS even removed handles from water spigots along the Chesapeake and Ohio canal where bikers and joggers exercise as well as along the Great Allegheny Passage, just to ensure people don’t get any water from them.
But did he turn off the water fountains he set up for illegal aliens trespassing in Arizona? Hell no!
He actually arrested Vietnam veterans for honoring their fallen comrades.
Get over to his place for more.
