What does Lexington Green mean to you? Most people would not be able to answer this simple question. Here is a portion of the events leading up to the shot heard round the world:
Word spread from town to town, and militias prepared to confront the British and help their neighbors in Lexington and Concord.
These COLONIAL MILITIAS had originally been organized to defend settlers from civil unrest and attacks by French or Native Americans. Selected members of the militia were called MINUTEMEN because they could be ready to fight in a minute’s time.
Sure enough, when the advance guard of nearly 240 British soldiers arrived in Lexington, they found about 70 minutemen formed on the LEXINGTON GREEN awaiting them. Both sides eyed each other warily, not knowing what to expect. Suddenly, a bullet buzzed through the morning air.
It was “the shot heard round the world.”
Did we just have a new shot heard round the world that will lead to a new revolution and restore our Liberty? The Obama regime has blocked veterans from World War II from entering the WWII Memorial in Washington. Our greatest generation stood against tyranny starting at the end of 1941 at great personal cost. They stood against tyranny again this week as they removed barricades and entered the memorial. But as before, tyranny has come into the light with all of the arrogance of assumed power. Fences have been erected and security guards dispatched to ensure that no veterans would be allowed to enter.
What is not being widely told is that the memorial is privately maintained and has no government expenses associated with it. Until now. There is security in place to ensure 90+ year old veterans cannot enter the memorial. And then there is the cost associated to pay SEIU protestors $15/hr to harass the veterans:
Will the American people stand up to tyranny as before? If not now, when? I say that this is a watershed moment that should be new Lexington Green. Except for one thing: this is what Obama wants. Think about it. Why would such a blatant attack against our most revered war heroes be made at this time? I believe it is an attempt to incite civil unrest so that martial law can be declared. The perfect storm of the debt ceiling, budget crisis and Obamacare collapse have destroyed our country. What other alternative does our “government” have?
But when events do unfold, “Remember the Veterans” should be our battle cry.
In the end history will remember that it was the league of grandfathers and great grandfathers with time-creased faces—35,000 World War II veterans who dropped the mask on a cruel, self-centered and cold-hearted president, showing the world for once and for all who President Barack Obama really is.
Not only did Obama personally have barricaded the War Memorial the vets came to Washington, D.C. to honour, his government shutdown closed the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial where tourists travelling to Omaha Beach come to pay their respects to the 9,387 military dead.
“The site overlooking the D-Day invasion beaches is one of 24 U.S. military cemeteries overseas that have closed to visitors since Monday. Ten more cemeteries in France, as well as others in various European countries as well as Mexico, Panama, Tunisia and the Philippines, will remain closed for the duration of the shutdown.” (AP, Oct. 2, 2013)
Honouring the war dead is anathema to Marxists on the rise.
