Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Storms DC, Riot Police Show Up
Posted on 10/13/2013 9:45:42 AM PDT by Timber Rattler
Sundays rally at the WWII memorial in Washington, D.C., which was headlined by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, has broken out in utter chaos, as both D.C. Metro and Park police attempted to shut down the event.
According to one of the Shark Tanks correspondent on the ground, Special K, two police cruiser blocked entrance into WWII memorial, in an effort to stop truckers from arriving from the highway.
Four marked Secret Service vehicles had arrived on the scene, joining dozens of law enforcement assets, who had already arrived, including a SWAT team dressing in full riot gear.
Prior to SWAT arriving, the crowd was chanting move those cars, move those cars, which was possibly the reason why riot control was called in.
Police blocked the road leading up to the WWII memorial from both directions, and had also detained, questioned, and subsequently released, a man dressed in full Muslim dress.
Sarah Palin, along with a few hundred of her closest friends, including Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, headed over to the Lincoln memorial, and busted down Obamas barricades. Palin also engaged police, presumably to thank them for their service.

WHERE are any live video streams?
This is (highly) frustrating.
Chant: “Where is McCain?!
Damn, I wish I could be there!
We were proud to stand with thousands of America's vets and other patriotic Americans today in Washington, D.C. This morning, Todd and I met with Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, and they joined us and other Americans at the World War II Memorial and then at the Lincoln Memorial, where we were met by a SWAT team in full riot gear! Watching those who have fought to protect freedom prevented by barricades from visiting these memorials to freedom was truly heart wrenching. Seeing the unity of the American people as they joined together and rose up against this out of touch government was an inspiration. God bless our veterans, those who continue to serve, and their families.
I'll be posting an album of some photos from today. Below are the brief remarks I gave today:
We're here to show that the size of America's heart for our veterans is immeasurable! But look around barricades to shut down our memorials? Is this how a Commander in Chief expresses his gratitude? This "shutdown" priority proves a shameful lack of respect. It reflects a person's lack of valor.
But, Vets, We the People have learned from you! We know America will only remain the "Home of the Free" so long as we are the "Home of the Brave!"
So, as we honor you, U.S. Military, know that our gratitude will not sleep! We will be brave! You were not timid, so we shall not be timid in calling out ANY who heart-wrenchingly would use you as pawns in a political game.
America's finest paid the price for our freedom today. Vets, you protected us from tyranny then. Rest now, it is OUR turn to protect against tyranny again.
Ronald Reagan said, "Some people live an entire lifetime wondering if they ever made a difference in the world." YOU, vets, need never ask that of yourselves. You made ALL the difference!
Our war memorials remind us of the cost to keep us free. YOU paid the price! Rest now! We will pick up the mantle. We won't let you down. We now take up the fight for freedom!
Lexington and Concord come to mind.
Sure, shut it down but let the illegals protest on OUR mall! WTF? What’s it gunna take? I honestly don’t know.
She sure looks good.
Amazing how polite REAL Americans are to the authorities who are caught in the middle.
Not a peep on TV, etc.
The “situation” got pretty tense at one point when the crowd demanded “remove those cars” and the vets wouldn’t back down.
I was at the WWII and Lincoln memorials this morning but missed seeing Palin and Lee. Darn!
That makes two of us.
Go, go, go.
Wow, look at all those dangerous rioters!
“WTF? Whats it gunna take? I honestly dont know.”
A whole lot more than just a couple of hundred people showing up.
Thank You for posting Sarah's Facebook Post!
A whole lot more than just a couple of hundred people showing up.
Yes, that is certainly true.
Do the police intend to beat down our veterans and other supporters?
truckers and Bikers and Vets!
The Biker Church lifted up all these folks today in prayer (Those who are still left in FL)
God Bless Sarah!!!!!!!!!!
I can’t get past sharkgator
Sarah’s beautiful. She always is.
It’s about time!
So the illegals were allowed last week,no problem. Got it.
I wish that I was there!
The mainstream media is almost entirely in non-coverage mode over the air but Doocy posted something online showing barricade removal.
Jim Acosta of CNN has posted more on the protests outside the WH with the removed barricades dumped and police using them against protestors.
His posts have been reposted at the widely read breaking news.com page.
Hey - that’s an insult to Star Wars!
We should have tried to go!
God bless them ALL!
I haven’t been arrested in Washington DC since 1971, I wished I could get there for this stuff.
DC Police? none of their F****** Business.
let Barry take care of his own policing.
Yes, we need crowds like the brave people of Cairo put together to get rid of Morsi.
Drudge now has three stories on this:
Just a note from the story above:
WASHINGTON - Thousands of people converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall on Sunday morning and ...
(thousands, from the first link above)
The online coverage is picking up but the on air coverage is non-existent when it comes to the barricades being torn down and taken to the White House.
The website just crashed.
GOD has certainly blessed us with them all! Have a great Sunday dear friend! This is making it a great Sunday!
My heart would probably stop if I saw all three of them together. Wow.
Posted pictures show they carried Barrycades to tht WhiteHut and made a huge pile by the WhiteHut fence......
God Bless our veterans!
Yes, they absolutely will if given the order.
This is not your neighborhood cop anymore.
GO SARAH!! GO VETS!! TEAR DOWN THAT BARRYCADE!!
awww President Reagan Babies =) Amazing to know that during Reagan Administration there were children who grew during that period now they have grown and LOOK!! More to come in the future!!
The illegals were allowed in(And I still dont get why INS didnt come in and arrest and deport their asses) because the Dems are going to use them to get the votes needed in 2016..Dems see illegals as their meal ticket to ultimate power
