Outraged vets removed and dumped them outside White House yesterday
While the government is supposedly still in “shutdown,” more money is being spent on new barricades to fence off the World War II memorial in DC, just hours after outraged veterans removed the old barricades and dumped them outside the White House.
Some have cited the White House’s vindictiveness over the barricades as an example of how Obama is behaving like “President Stompy Feet” in punishing Americans for the government shut down.
Others said re-installing the barricades was another “slap in the face” for veterans and noted that the White House is a lot more keen to secure war memorials than they are the country’s border.
After wounded veterans and their supporters helped remove the barricades and dump them outside the White House yesterday during the ‘Million Vet March’, the feds sent in baton-wielding riot cops in an attempt to intimidate the protesters.
