Among the places that have seen “Barry-cades” erected in an attempt to keep people out during the government shutdown is the Iwo Jima Memorial in Rosslyn, Virginia. The blockades didn’t hold up long today.

Once inside the memorial, the vets gathered for a magnificent photo:

The Barry-cades were yet again no match for heroes such as these.

    Good for them, we have a Piece of Shiz for President who is a dick and I’m glad they stood up and crashed the barry-cades. Way to go heroes!

    • BlueGood

      Take NO prisoners VETS!…you earned the RIght to be there, to “Honour your Buddies”

      This self imposed Historian, who has watched DOZENS of WWII Documentaries, who’s only child serves in the Canadian Armed Forces, will never give up fighting for you and thanking you…..

      Semper Fi……………and GOD BLESS YOU!

      This is the way a real American stands up to tyranny.

      Are you taking notes McCain (you sniveling little worm)?

    Great!!! Time to stop/block Harry Reid and Obama’s culture of targeting of certain groups of Americans. Can’t wait to watch the Truckers’ ride into DC next Friday. See Truckers’ Ride for the Constitution — to D.C. Oct. 11 – 13, 2013.

    Now move the Barry-cades and close Camp David. If he’s not gonna negotiate, he can’t be allowed to play golf.

  • c2

    This one gets me. My father was on Iwo. Bradley, Hayes, Gagnon, Sousley, Strank, and Block – as well as my father, his cousin, and Iwo veterans everywhere – are turning over in their graves today.

    These things will be accounted for. These people will not be kept from receiving their honor if good Americans have anything to say about it,

    And WE DO.

  • TJ

    The flag that is on Iwo Jima Memorial will be coming down on Tuesday as per order from the OMB even if there is a rule that it is always to have a flag 24/7 going all the way back to 1961.

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      I’d be happy to donate a replacement.

      • IBXNJ

        That dirtbag might trash it!!

      • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

        You’ve got a replacement President?!? Why didn’t you break that puppy out sooner!

        What? … Oh,you meant replacement flag ..

        I bet the day after it comes down some Marine puts another in its place. It could go on for weeks.

        • TracyJean

          There’ll be someone hiding in the bushes waiting to put a flag back up.

    • JBSPuddintane

      That flag had better stay there.

  • theresagillis

    These are our parks, not government. This Pres needs to go,we must take the Senate and start Impeachment

  • TDS

    I just fear that before this is over, someone will get hurt or killed by one of the folks sent out to defend monuments against “domestic invasion”…

    • lanahi

      I would be interested in seeing what would happen if one of those vets actually got arrested. Man, they don’t know what they are doing in attacking our heroes!

  • IBXNJ

    Thank God the bus driver is not a federal employee!!!

  • JBSPuddintane

    Honor those who resisted the ugliness of the Japs and now, whatever you call this…

  • NRPax

    Mr. President,
    Speaking as a former Marine, the men who were at Iwo Jima have a special place in our hearts. I have seen Colonels and Generals stop their conversations and walk over to assist these men. I have seen Sergeant Majors move aside as they walk past.

    Be grateful that your childish insults are looked on as just that, sir. And it would go even more poorly for you if you choose to escalate this with them.

    • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

      Thank you for your service.
      And to hell with the sniveling coward that TD’d you. If he had the [email protected] to come to Massachusetts, I’d bust his chin for him.

      • NRPax

        Admittedly, my place in Marine Corps history is an asterisk at best. But I’ve been at that memorial with my unit during a ceremony where some of those men were driven in. Humbling is the best description I could give.

        As for downtwinkles the troll? “Go ye forth and procreate upon thyself before expiring” you whiny little waste of flesh. Try debating what I said out in the open instead of hiding behind your anonymity.

        • Deborah Hallsted

          It’s probably Chad. Chad Henderson, paid troll. He’s probably gotten his panties in a twist since they found out his lie about purchasing Obamascare; his lies backfired revealing he’s an OFA worker. Is that you Chad?Hi! ? Got free time on your hands now, lol?

    • wwbdinct

      Someone downvoted your post. SMH. I couldn’t loathe these Obamazombies more than I do today!

  • NeoKong

    More than half the men that raised that flag were dead only days later.
    Obama is a disgrace to shutdown war memorials.

    • grais

      He even shut down the memorial/cemetery in Normandy, fcol.

      Obama’s paying 50 guards to keep people from paying respects to those who died on those beaches.

      That half-man is an abomination.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    I guess you could say they threw the Barry-cades under the bus.

  • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

    How this makes me long for the carefree days of Watergate . . .

  • ObamaFail

    I said this the other day when the Vets went on into the WWII Memorial regardless of the barricades, and I’ll say it here. These guys weren’t afraid of the Japanese soldiers, or Hitler and his Nazi troops in the 40s, and they’re sure as hell not afraid of a wannabe dictator on an ego trip.

  • brwaldbaum

    Whatever happened to “We support the troops, just not the war”?

  • one american

    Our veterans gave their all. Now it’s up to us to give our all so that these brave men and women are not dishonored. Obama, Tear down those Barrycades”!

  • Hcon1

    Were this the OWS rabble, the BSM would be celebrating.

    They have no reason to downvote your post. Even if they did, they would be to cowardly to tell you.

  • Frustrated Teacher

    The Douche-in-chief didn’t close his military golf course, though, did he? That man is just despicable. WAKE UP America!!

  • autdrew4real

    Thank you because you had me worried! I told my husband & said it came from the comment section so I cant verify. His immediate reaction was THATS BULLSHIITE! He went all Marine for a few minutes lol

  • LoneRangler

    I’m surprised Obama didn’t throw a tarp over it.

  • klbout

    Barry-cades placed at the WWII Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial & other NPS petty antics orchestrated from the White House are a monument to failed Leadership by a pernicious President!

  • klbout

    Time for the NPS personnel to stand up and remember who pays their salaries – the American Taxpayers!

    Time to throw the BS flag and say NO to the imbeciles over at 1900 Pennsylvania Ave and their pettiness.

  • Ken Alan Draper

    Semper Fi!

  • Ken Alan Draper

    If the Imperial Japanese army couldn’t keep the Marines out of Peleliu, Makin, Tarawa, Okinawa, & Iwo Jima what chance does the Democrates of keeping them from their memorials?

  • RanierWest

    Obama is trailer trashing up the Capital erecting ugly barrycades. This isn’t your country Barry.

    How about #warmemorialbarrycades or #barrycades

    don’t give them any ideas.

  • no_more_deceit

    Poor president odrama, he doesn’t know that there is no such thing as an ex-Marine.
    He may have to call a corpseman.
