Remember when SYRIAN President Assad CUT OFF all info out of his country, as he was bombing HIS OWN CITIZENS?
Today out of Washington, a HUGE group---many THOUSANDS--- of VETERANS, truckers, bikers, and plain-old AMERICANS are exercising their RIGHT to "peacefully assemble" and PROTEST what is being done to the PEOPLE'S monuments in a game of political blackmail by this administration.
They first OPENED the WW II memorial, then marched to the Lincoln Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial, then carried the "Barry-cades" from the memorials to the White House and DUMPED them there, all the while shouting "We the People!" and "SHAME ON YOU" to the occupant of the White House.
And what was the response?
Shutdown of live feeds, shut down of twitter feeds, shutdown of cell phones, shut down of internet feeds----sound familiar?
As in--Assad? Mubarak? Khaddaffi? China? the USSR???
What was the FURTHER response?
Police--mounted and on foot---donning RIOT gear (against a peaceful protest by the citizens, MANY of them OCTOGENARIAN veterans of WW II), brandishing batons, and carrying plastic "zip-cuffs"----against our OWN people who are there to PEACEABLY protest this government's actions.
I have a PIC of ELDERLY LADIES --- LADIES!!! --- being HIT by one of these 'police-officers' (I put that in quotes because MY DADDY was a POLICE OFFICER and he--and I--am ASHAMED of these 'so-called' LEO's who could do this) with metal batons. As far as I can tell, the little old ladies were doing NOTHING to deserve such treatment. I do not know how to post it to LJ since they changed their format, so if anyone can tell me how I would be glad to do it.
WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!
You can SEE and follow coverage of the HUGE march HERE: (a UK site---ironic, isn't it, how we AMERICANS now have to go to a FOREIGN site to see what's going on in our OWN country?)
Here's a GREAT You Tube video showing the situation--the ONLY MSM news coverage of it I've seen:
