America deserves better

One week after World War II veterans were denied access to the U.S. National World War II Memorial on the National Mall, Democrats had an immigration rally on those very grounds. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi thanked President Obama for allowing the rally. It is obvious that Obama and Pelosi and their like have little regard for our veterans.

But this is nothing new. On Memorial Day 2012, Vietnam veterans were not allowed to lay wreaths at the memorial in honor of fallen soldiers. The reason? Obama was there to make a speech, and the area was closed to everyone except people with special passes. Thousands of veterans were gathered with wreaths to recognize our fallen soldiers, but were turned away so a politician could give a speech. When presidents Reagan, George H.W. Bush and even Clinton spoke on Memorial Day, our veterans were welcome to attend.

I think our country is being led by Marxists and communists, and I’d bet that many of them spat on our soldiers when they returned from Vietnam.

I am very ashamed to have a president who has such little regard for our veterans – but then what can we expect from someone who seems to hate everything this country was founded on?
