Patriotic Americans fed up with Obama antics storm Lincoln Memorial

Last Thursday, Barack Obama announced that his administration would allow some national parks to reopen … so long as they paid their own park operations out of state and private coffers. What a guy! Putting aside the question of the president’s motive — whether he was acting out of consideration for the people who conferred power on him or out of fear that his spiteful antics would come back to haunt him — some parks did indeed open over the weekend.

Meantime, the White House remains closed-lipped on when the monuments to Obama’s predecessors in D.C. will officially receive visitors. One of them, the Lincoln Memorial, had several dozen un-official visitors on Saturday, when protestors moved the barricades aside and walked up the steps in a stirring show of patriotism (h/t Weasel Zippers).

Washington ABC affiliate KLTV captured the scene on video.

Initially, Park Service rangers looked the other way as these dedicated Americans completed their pilgrimage, but before long returned to business as usual, dispatching a “small army” to the memorial to disperse the “intruders.”
