It has been fairly obvious over the last few weeks that Barack Obama will do absolutely anything to make citizens suffer in order to ignore any “compromise” with congress. He’s openly said, “I shouldn’t have to offer anything.”
To prove his point, he’s shut down the WWII memorial, he’s had Vietnam vets kicked out of their memorial, he’s had privately-funded parks shut down, and even shuttered the Grand Canyon.
But now he’s reached a new low. He’s had senior citizen detained by armed federal agents for daring to be tourists at the Yellowstone National Park.
In fact, the local newspaper “The Eagle-Tribune” has reported that the feds used “gestapo-like” tactics to detain the elderly tourists:
Pat Vaillancourt went on a trip last week that was intended to showcase some of America’s greatest treasures. Instead, the Salisbury resident said she and others on her tour bus witnessed an ugly spectacle that made her embarrassed, angry and heartbroken for her country.
Vaillancourt was one of thousands of people who found themselves in a national park as the federal government shutdown went into effect on Oct. 1. For many hours her tour group, which included senior citizen visitors from Japan, Australia, Canada and the United States, were locked in a Yellowstone National Park hotel under armed guard.
The tourists were treated harshly by armed park employees, she said, so much so that some of the foreign tourists with limited English skills thought they were under arrest. When finally allowed to leave, the bus was not allowed to halt at all along the 2.5-hour trip out of the park, not even to stop at private bathrooms that were open along the route.
“We’ve become a country of fear, guns and control,” said Vaillancourt, who grew up in Lawrence. “It was like they brought out the armed forces. Nobody was saying, ‘we’re sorry,’ it was all like — ” as she clenched her fist and banged it against her forearm.
I generally ask readers to share content that the mainstream media won’t cover, and this is probably the most important thing I’ve read that the media isn’t covering.
If you only share one thing, let it be this. There has to be some kind of backlash from the public, or the police state is only going to get worse.
