“CAN’T KEEP US OUT”
by Sharon Rondeau
U-Stream is providing live coverage of the event, while the mainstream media remains largely silent.
Beginning on Friday, a Truckers’ Ride for the Constitution began to last the weekend in protest of government abuse, corruption, and the closure of the memorials.
Several unconfirmed reports state that police are “inspecting” truckers who participated in the “Truckers’ Ride for the Constitution” this weekend. The narrator then confirmed the reports of police reportedly doing “snap inspections” on the truckers’ vehicles.
At 10:40 a.m., the narrator said, “We’re just about to the Vietnam Memorial.” A sign showing a drawing of Obama with a dunce cap on with “DUNCE” underneath was shown.
One twitter posted, “Here’s what our veterans thing of the barrycades:”
Someone from U-Stream said that “live support from the UK” was present at the march. He said that over 8,000 people were viewing the live stream at 10:45 a.m.
A twitter reported that police are blocking off the Lincoln Memorial, where the crowd is planning to go after the Vietnam Memorial. At 10:57, a U-Stream narrator said that barricades have been removed and “put back” by Park Police.
A woman called for everyone to “fill the stairs” of the Lincoln Memorial. The narrator asked the woman what she would like to say to the 8,000 people listening, to which she said, “Stand up and do something!”
At 11:03 a.m. the narrator said, “Can’t keep us out” as the camera showed the attendees in front of the statue of Lincoln.
A speaker said that Marine Corps One was flying over the memorial with “President Barack Obama.”
“To the White House!!!” someone shouted. Some type of law enforcer was shown on a horse on the grounds of the Lincoln Memorial. “You’re going to need a lot more horses than that!” someone shouted. “Damn cowards!” said another.
“It looks like the march is going to move on to the White House,” the narrator said at 11:10 a.m.
“Several of the vets here have grabbed barricades to take them over to the White House,” the narrator said. The camera then showed “one of the tossed barricades.”
“We;re going to the White House, it looks like,” the narrator said, even though his wife, who has a broken foot, is having some difficulty with the trek. The narrator said she is also a veteran.
He reiterated that some veterans are carrying barricades to the White House, the crowd’s next destination “to barricade the White House.”
At 11:20, Rep. Steve Stockman tweeted:
