There is a group called Special Operations Speaks. SOS- get it?
Does this organization speak on behalf of veterans struggling to readjust to civilian life or facilitate getting benefits from the government? Of course not.
This Sunday, SOS is planning to surge into Washington D.C. to protest that our “Muslim” President has shuttered war monuments.
Note how they’re not blaming Congress, specifically the insane faction of the GOP who actually succeeded in SHUTTING DOWN THE GOVERNMENT.
The email newsletter from the group reads as follows:
“In a mean-spirited fit of selfish anger, Barack Obama – who never wore a uniform in his life other than Islamic garb – has shut down our nation’s war memorials. And he has declared open war on our honored veterans!
The World War II memorial … the Vietnam Veterans Memorial … the Korean War Veterans Memorial – Obama has shut them all down to force his will on the House of Representatives and frankly, to get revenge on the American people who oppose Obamacare and his other naked power grabs. Let’s put it plainly: Barack Obama is behaving like a vicious tyrant. And if he succeeds in this assault on the democratic system, the Republic we love is at mortal risk. It’s just that simple.”
Ignore the underlined phrases. Internet protocol that such words are a link to another site, is totally ignored.
Not to confuse the situation with facts, but the President was not the one who shut down the functioning of many parts of the federal government.
There’s no dounbt Obama is very aware of the strain this action places on the military community. Obama worked to get the death benefit to families who lost loved ones in conflict since the shutdown began.
We owe a debt to all who serve on behalf of this country. To use the military and veterans as pawns to attack a President with lies is beyond a disgrace.
And if the trucker demonstration is any indication, there will be far less than a million folks protesting.
