“The site overlooking the D-Day invasion beaches is one of 24 U.S. military cemeteries overseas that have closed to visitors since Monday. Ten more cemeteries in France, as well as others in various European countries as well as Mexico, Panama, Tunisia and the Philippines, will remain closed for the duration of the shutdown.” (AP, Oct. 2, 2013)
Honouring the war dead is anathema to Marxists on the rise.
And what Obama is doing to the Walking Wounded is just as painful. Many of the 35,000 Second World War vets in their 80s and 90s are making their visit to the memorial in wheel chairs. It is the trip of a lifetime for 99% of them, who have never seen their memorial. Internet pictures show how these up-in-age heroes are sporting the new clothes provided by loving relatives
The reign of hate-filled spite, media-dubbed as ‘Barrycades’ even includes George Washington’s beloved Mount Vernon, which happens to be privately run.

Even in their golden years, the vets of World War II, who sacrificed life and limb for liberty and freedom, have left younger generations a real parting gift.
It is the veterans who showed the world what is behind the mask of President Barack Obama: cruelty towards the aging soldiers of the greatest generation of our time and blatant anti-Americanism.
Of all the punishment Obama has cavalierly meted out since his November 4, 2008 election, this is the one that will leave him most reviled.
Americans are fighting angry, not the least of them popular radio talk show patriot Mark Levin.
“I want to say this loud and clear to the people on Capitol Hill who are listening, to this administration,” Levin said on his radio show last night. “You lay one damn hand on one of those World War II vets at that memorial and I’ll bring half a million people to that damn memorial! You got that?!Patriots, fighting Obama in his arrogant Fundamental Transformation of America, (read the deliberate and crazed Takedown of America), know they stand at least a fighting chance to return their country to the status it earned long before Obama came along to topple the U.S.
“I’m sitting here stewing thinking about this – playing these damn games? You’ll ignite a movement in this country like you’ve never seen before! The biker patriot army – veterans from all over the country, every single war and battle in this country, Republican, Democrat, Independent, whatever!
“I’ll be damned if one president, with his feet up on the desk in the oval office, with a smirk on his face, looking at his golf card…I’ll be damned if this president or anybody else is going to shut down that WWII memorial. Period! These men are in their 80s and 90s.
“So let me repeat! You lay one hand on one of those men and arrest them for going to their memorial, which they fought for, which was not paid by you dammit, it was paid by the American people – we will come out of every town and city in this nation! We will come out of every county. And both coasts! Both borders! And we will march on Washington against your tyranny!”
Obama will be strutting his stuff for photo-ops on upcoming Veterans Day. But this time, it will only serve as a reminder of his hypocrisy for the masses.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
—In Flanders Fields, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
Patriots should take heart on the latest ‘Barrycade’ efforts aimed to cause pain because during it all, there is one thing World War II vets proved to the world: Real life heroes, who stormed the beaches of Normandy and Iwo Jima are so much better than politicians who bestow their own phony names on themselves before going on to make themselves ‘president’.
