‘Honor Flights’ of WW II Vets will be permitted to memorial. Other Americans will be barred says Park Service. Obama now decides which American Citizens are afforded First Amendment Rights.
As most of us knew, Obama is playing politics to intimidate opposition to his agenda and/or incite a civil war with the petulant temper tantrum shutting down open air memorials, yanking websites offline and blaming the entire fiasco on his political opposition while his sycophant stormtroopers in the media suggest Obama use the military to punish Tea Party Conservatives.
Proof of the former is found from a House Committee that cites Obama’s regime choosing the most popular memorials for targeted closure and shuttering. This is the same old thing Obama did with his Sequester that shut down military air shows and flyovers during parades and events this past Summer.
After Tuesday and Wednesday’s storming of the Barry-Cades by angry vets into the WWII Memorial, the firestorm forced a change in tactics by the Obama regime and the Department of the Interior who now say the Memorial can stay open for vets for “First Amendment Activity”. I guess to Obama, some 1st Amendment Rights are more equal than others.
On Wednesday, the Obama administration attempted to take the World War II memorial issue off the table by allowing monuments to reopen for groups like the Honor Flight vets.
“My understanding is that the closure order provides a process for accepting First Amendment activities on National Mall and memorial parks in D.C. and in Philadelphia,” he said.
Obama is an angry petulant man-child wielding his imperial power like a toddler having a hissy fit attempting to inflict as much pain on the American people as possible so he can blame it on his political enemies and Breitbart has the story:
According to the House Committee on Natural Resources, the Obama administration has taken the unusual step of shutting down only the most popular tourist memorials in the nation’s capital, including the World War II Memorial, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, and the National Mall. Other, lesser-visited sites, have been left open. “[T]he Obama Administration is applying this policy inconsistently and choosing which memorials to block off and which to keep open. While these popular monuments remain barricaded, other U.S. Park properties such as the Constitutional Gardens and Japanese Americans Memorial remain completely open,” the Committee said in a press release.
House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings stated, “It appears as though only the highly visible monuments and areas are being closed to the public – further proof that the Obama Administration is only playing politics and purposely choosing to make this shut down as painful as possible. Their actions are shameful and wrong.”
