Sarah Palin: We were met by a SWAT team in full riot gear at Lincoln Memorial

Absolutely disgusting that the Obama administration would bring a SWAT team in full riot gear to a protest by those who put everything on the line for this country. Just goes to show what they think about us Americans on the right.



 
 
Here’s video from Facebook user Paul Longenecker that shows the riot police:

It’s only “pretty public” in your Democrat mind. Veterans are overwhelmingly conservative. Who in the hel do you think supports the veterans? Obama? He’s the one who shut it down and threatened to stop the vets disability checks!
We vets need all the help we can get from Washington but it’s only coming from people like Palin and Cruz, not Democrats.

As opposed to the GOP, who have hurt multiple bills designed to help veterans? The Veterans Job Corps Bill, for example.
And no, it’s not “in my Democrat mind”. There are many articles which show the organizers of the Million Veterans March are unhappy with their march being taken over.

And they wanted to control who was there and who wasn’t? The issue belonged to all of us. Cruz, Lee, and Palin were there to support the vets, and because they were there, it got media attention that was needed in order for it to be effective. 2 MILLION bikers were recently in DC but very little media coverage. How do you ignore 2 MILLION bikers? Simple…it wasn’t “newsworthy” without Palin there. A few organizers were unhappy about them? It really was not THE ORGANIZERS’ event at all, they just started it. They should have been happy to have the media attention to it and many thousands who were there because of Palin, Cruz, and Lee as well. It would have been different if OWS had come instead. What reason did the organizers have to complain of those who came to support the cause? It was not “taken over” by… Read more »

Here, let me copy and paste directly from the Million Vet March website (They have the same message on their facebook page as well):

UPDATED: Mon Oct 14, 2013 6:35 PM EST – The political agenda put forth by a local organizer in Washington DC was not in alignment with our message. We feel disheartened that some would seek to hijack the narrative for political gain. The core principle is about all Americans honoring Veterans in a peaceful and apolitical manner. Mr. Cruz, Ms. Palin and some attendees, including political parties may have not been aware of the goals of the marches which took place in over 60+ rallies across the nation.

“As opposed to the GOP, who have hurt multiple bills designed to help veterans? The Veterans Job Corps Bill, for example.”

That’s like saying we are against health care if we don’t support Obamacare. Those “multiple bills” when put forth by Democrats are there to spread their agenda, not to “help” anyone, especially veterans. (BTW, when have leftists supported veterans?) This bill was a gimmick to spend another billion dollars with probably no real benefit to veterans. You have to read the bills, not the supposed aim of the bills!

Explain “took over”, please. They were there in SUPPORT of the cause. For their own political gain? Their “gain” was to the cause they stood for that day, and that was the only “gain” that was important to them. They are putting themselves on the line whether it is a “gain” for themselves or not. Leftists are happy when no voices are raised against the current regime. When conservatives stand up against what is going on, they cry about the motives of those standing up and say it is a personal motive. The meme is always in the leftists favor: If they had NOT been there, we would be hearing “where was Palin?” or “where was Cruz?” I would have been happier to see many more in the public eye being there in support of them, all the so-called conservatives in congress, for a start.

“Full riot gear” usually includes a face shield and full helmet – not Barry-like bicycle helmets like these 12-15 dorks wore.

Also, the “shame on you” chants in the video are re-treads of the Occupy protests. I wonder how many “libertarian” (from the “confused” wing of the Libertarian sect) members were at this event were ALSO present for the Occupy events?

The TEA Party I know wouldn’t crap on ANY police in this manner. In fact, the TEA Partiers I’m familiar with would have LAUGHED at the pathetic “demonstration of force” depicted in this video.

Someone was at this event to “get arrested” & create a scene. That’s who was taken down by the Capitol police. Someone (from the “confused” wing of the Libertarian sect) wanted to create a scene. TEA Partiers don’t behave in this manner. Leftists do.

LMAO! Do I think they should have done it at all? Absolutely NOT. Do I think they did it as a “show of force”? Absolutely. (Even though it was pathetic, it DID elicit a response from the crowd – which is most likely their sole reason for doing it in the first place. – the one guy near the beginning of the vid yelled “looks like they’re from Kenya” – wtf was that about?

On one brief video, I saw a lot of cameras in the hands of the good guys. That’s probably why the good guys didn’t get roughed up or arrested. Photos of those cops should go viral on the internet. They declared themselves to be the real enemies of America, and they ought to be identified as such. They ought to be ostentatiously shunned everywhere conservatives meet them. They should be politely told everywhere they go, “You can not call yourself an American any more. You are a foreign mercenary on sovereign American soil. You should leave. You do not belong here. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Your mother must regret that she gave birth to you.”

The riot police show up to non-violent protests by conservatives and veterans, yet Obama, Pelosi and Reid not only supported the violent, unruly, law breaking OWS mob they encouraged it. Poop on cop cars, set trash bins in fire, rape women and even kill an occasional bystander….ACCEPTED by the Obama administration. A veteran trying to get into a memorial to honor his fallen comrades? REJECTED by the Obama administration and send the riot police!

And what government CAN do, it will do, whenever they think there is justification for it.

Read the Patriot Acts to see what government CAN do. It includes indefinite detention without formal charges against anyone who is said to be a “terrorist”, whether there is any evidence of that or not. There are already czars in Homeland Security and others who are calling ex-military and tea party members “potential terrorists”.

Like that poor guy who supposedly made the video that caused rioting in the middle east…he also was imprisoned just on those charges, true or not, without a trial. Just a test case, I think.

kong1967

kong1967

As for the poor guy who was imprisoned for causing rioting in Libya, that’s not why he was arrested. He was arrested for violating probation. Of course, twelve cops showed up at his door in the middle of the night as if he was a dangerous criminal, and they obviously used the probation violation as an excuse to put him in jail because Kimberly Guilfoyle said they don’t arrest you for his type of violation. But they didn’t haul him off to Gitmo and they could only hold him to the penalty of his probation violation (to serve out his previous sentence). You’re making it sound like they they made up charges and whisked him away into a dungeon somewhere to be held without formal charges and indefinite detention. That’s not true. Yes, there is the danger that one day someone could be taken because they are the enemy politically,… Read more »

The Patriot Acts allow for indefinite arrest of anyone “suspected” of being a terrorist. “Potential terrorist” vs “suspected terrorist” means the same thing, in the government’s mind, and they have to prove nothing at all. They also can now search any house without warrants, simply by labeling the occupants as potential terrorists. “The Department of Defense Dictionary of Military Terms defines terrorism as: “The calculated use of unlawful violence or THREAT of unlawful violence to inculcate fear; intended to COERCE or to INTIMIDATE GOVERNMENTS or societies in the pursuit of GOALS THAT ARE GENERALLY POLITICAL, RELIGIOUS, OR IDEOLOGICAL.” With this paranoid administration, that definition of terrorism includes ALL of us who don’t like the current political powers. It is a VERY small step from “potential terrorist” to “terrorist”. The government can imprison indefinitely on only “suspicion” since the Patriot Acts.

You are dead wrong on Nakoula. He most certainly was arrested for violation probation and making false statements. No charges of so called “blasphemy against Muslims”. There’s no doubt that was the motive for the arrest, but they can’t arrest you for exercising your free speech. Being so, they arrested him on the only thing they could arrest him on. If not for his past crimes they would have been up sh** creek without a paddle and wouldn’t have been able to arrest him for anything. Obama can’t just round up the Tea Party and whisk them off to a dungeon without charges indefinitely. There’s oversight to prevent it. Would he if he could? I don’t know, but I’d say probably. If he tries it will be civil war. You say the government WILL do whatever is within it’s power. I disagree. The power to do what Obama is doing… Read more »

I think most of what people fear is unwarranted. The law is for terrorists and I don’t believe everyday Tea Party folk have to worry about being hauled off to a deep dark dungeon indefinitely without being charged. Obama is sinister, I’ll give you that, but has anyone been hauled away as of yet? Obama has abused the law and used the IRS to target Tea Party groups, I’ll give you that. But is that legal? No. My point is that if Obama wanted you to disappear….you would. He wouldn’t need no law to allow him to do it. Under Clinton there were over 60 people that mysteriously committed “suicide” or were killed that were closely linked to Clinton’s scandals. A lady also said a few men approached her and threatened to kill her dog (and she was a potential witness against Clinton). Some of the “suicides” were shot in… Read more »

I am backtracking on everything I said in the previous post. I would hope he couldn’t get away with accusing everyday people as being terrorists because of the oversight, but I am so appalled right now with the Benghazi report that I don’t put anything past the communist bastard.

The US government has done worse to veterans, such as in 1932 under a GOP president. See brief essay below: Most of the Bonus Army camped in a Hooverville on the Anacostia Flats, a swampy, muddy area across the Anacostia River from the federal core of Washington, just south of the 11th Street Bridges (now Section C of Anacostia Park). The camps, built from materials scavenged from a nearby rubbish dump, were tightly controlled by the veterans who laid out streets, built sanitation facilities, and held daily parades. To live in the camps, veterans were required to register and prove they had been honorably discharged. The Bonus Army massed at the United States Capitol on June 17 as the U.S. Senate defeated the Bonus Bill by a vote of 62-18. The marchers remained at their campsite waiting for President Hoover to act. On July 28, 1932, Attorney General William D.… Read more »

You began your original comment with these words, “The US government has done worse to veterans, such as in 1932 under a GOP president.” I may have misunderstood your point. The order to disperse, as you say, came from Hoover. The “bonuses” these soldiers were demanding were “service certificates” which had been issued as redeemable in 1945. They were desperate (this took place in 1932) so they tried to force early payment. I sympathize with them, but they were in fact trying to force a change in a “contract”. Their situation was pitiable, and I would have seen nothing wrong with those vets asking for or lobbying for an early payment, but they were legally in the wrong to demand and attempt to force it. The vets who attempted to visit their own war memorials were not demanding anything from the government. They had not set up a camp. They… Read more »

It’s not a case of “someone” needing a reality check, either – those memorials were shut down, and death benefits denied veterans, to demonstrate publicly that obama despises the American military, that he can grossly insult them publicly and get away with it. Of course he despises our military. He’s a muslim. In obama’s eyes, we are infidels.

Wonder if some did refuse to be there?

I saw their fear of the masses, and they were showing more force than they should have. Some, like the cop who was trying to tear a flag from a protesters hands or the ones using batons on old ladies, seriously over-reacted. This, if taken any further, could have sparked the very situation they were there to supposedly prevent…stupid cops.

Notice, except for the bicycle cops, the color of the cops’ helmets? Powder blue. Who else where that color? The United Nations!

They aren’t all wearing bike helmets. Some of them had riot helmets with face shields.

Hey, I had a bike helmet on yesterday, does that mean I’m SWAT now? Bit of an eggsageration there. But on the other hand, with a little “creative editing”, the drive-by media will make this look like a full blown riot. It’s about time we started taking it to 0’s back yard.

I am very proud of our Veterans and it saddens each of us to know what this Administration is doing to the very Heart of this Country.Lets be careful not to fall back into the same traps with these elected officials,and be careful who it is that decides to run for office.Please remember who has caved on us.Especially when it comes to issues they have signed off on against what We The People have wanted, or expected them to do, in and for our best interest or needs.It’s heart wrenching when they go against us.I feel so strongly now about how important it is for them to be honest ,and the lack of that honesty will determine how well they do their job and for who they chose to listen to. While Marco Rubio seems like he is on the up and up,time and research will give us the facts.… Read more »

Great letter, seems most of them cave. Paul Ryan is a RINO, hi budget deal is a disaster just like Dems, raises spending.

A small group of police wearing bicycle helmets, blue windbreakers and carrying collapsible batons do not make for a riot squad or SWAT team. This, more than likely was a test squad sent in to determine (or provoke) the intent of the gathering. Had it turned physical, the real riot boys would have appeared an taken extreme action and the press would have painted the protesters as violent and maladjusted discontents, thus downplaying and ignoring the reason they were protesting.

In light of these types of tactics, confronting this squad was the wrong thing for the protesters to do and could have led to an escalation to violence either real or perceived. First rule of protesting: Never give the police reason to act. If they had just ignored them completely the police presence would have looked silly and contrived and would have given the press nothing to report.

You folks keep trying to sell that line. Why not look at the photos and stop peddling this nonsense?

“Real riot boys” don’t “take action” if they don’t have to. Clearly there was no call to “take action.”

Please re-read the post. I was discussing tactics. I never stated that in this instance that there was reason to take action only that this situation could have gotten out of hand because of the crowd’s reaction to the police presence, a tactic which could have been instituted in an attempt to escalate the situation which would then discredit them. It is apparent in the video that this did not work and so you see the police retreating. Think of it as a fishing expedition: Throw a little chum in the water and see if the fish will bite.

Okay, I get it. Yeah, it was a provocation.

Looked like a peaceful protest to me. I was in a protest in Springfield, IL with 8-10 thousand people and there was maybe a cop on every other corner for traffic control. I’d say that a squad of police in formation such as this was designed to antagonize and intimidate the protesters, who acted in a restrained manner.

I AM SO PROUD OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FOR STANDING THEIR GROUND.
THE COPS WERE ORDERED TO BE THERE & I AM SURE SOME OF THEM DIDN’T WANT TO BE THERE. WE CAN BLAME OBAMA FOR THAT BUT HE WOULD PROBABLY BLAME BUSH!!!

Those aren’t the SWAT team. I know that term likes to be thrown around, but they aren’t actually SWAT. (note, I am not saying that them being there is ok or not, just that the term being used isn’t accurate).
