We’re still trying to figure this out. President Joe Biden was the only world leader on a Zoom climate summit to be wearing a mask, which he said was to send a message to the world. A day later, he emerged from the White House wearing a mask only to take it off and proclaim you don’t need to wear one outside. A day ago, Biden was interviewed on “Today,” where he said wearing a mask even if you’ve been vaccinated is a “patriotic responsibility.”
In other words, no one knows what’s going on. And in that light, the Department of Defense denied a parking permit for American Veterans to hold their (outdoor) Rolling to Remember rally.
JUST IN: The @DeptofDefense has denied a parking permit to the American Veterans, or AmVets, to stage a rallying point at the Pentagon, ending a 32-year-old tradition on Memorial Day weekend for Rolling To Remember.https://t.co/ltUEjt3iJr

The Pentagon did issue a press release, saying “if COVID-19 conditions permit, the department would gladly consider supporting a future event request from AMVETS, potentially as soon as this Labor Day weekend.” That reminds us of when Biden told us we might be allowed to have small gatherings on Independence Day if we all complied with mask mandates and kept our distance.
BREAKING: @AMVETSHQ tells me the @SecDef & @DeptofDefense has denied it the use of the Pentagon parking lot for this year's @RollToRemember on Memorial Day weekend. The veteran's group now will attempt to secure RFK Stadium as a new rallying point for 10K veterans. @7NewsDC pic.twitter.com/sVE8AgPGHl

This is unacceptable @SecDef.
AmVets has honored our brothers and sisters who didn't come home for 32 years.
This gives a perception of political retaliation after the disgusting implications by Biden admin that vets are extremists.

All Government agencies have become an enemy to the people that pay their salaries. This has become a top campaign topic for 2022 and 2024.
I will only support candidates that are for replacing EVERYONE from the top down in all of these corrupt institutions!

The corruption runs deeper than just the senior officers. 47 should fire everyone & start over. Clean slate.

They never cared about us, they just needed us to do the dirty work

Reminds me of when Obama blocked the Veterans from their Memorial parks.
Unbelievably shitty thing to do to people who served this country to be betrayed and treated this way by the current admin (dictatorship) that's making it clear that they are anti -patriot / anti- military.

They’re just afraid that large outdoor gatherings that aren’t Black Lives Matter protests could turn into superspreader events.
Call it peaceful protest

With every executive order, decision and decree, the entire Biden administration reaffirms their disdain for America, it's patriotic organizations, it's sacred symbols and it's solemn traditions. While COVID might be the excuse of convenience, this is about systemic destruction.

We will remember…We remember who have served and given their lives for us…we remember those who did not come back…we remember those who came back…and We will remember those who did not allow us to honor them.

Hopefully, AmVets will find an alternative staging area:
