Obama Thugs Forcibly Close Historical Park Government Doesn’t Fund or Operate

claude_moore_farm

The National Park Service seems to be Obama Inc’s vehicle of choice for showy theatrical “government shutdown affects you” productions.

A WW2 memorial that doesn’t require staffing is being barricaded to keep WW2 veterans out and a Colonial Farm that isn’t even operated or funded by the government was forcibly shut at virtual gunpoint.

The Claude Moore Colonial Farm, in McLean, Virginia, presents a slice of 1771 to the thousands of visitors who visit it every year.

The Claude Moore Colonial Farm, Eberly says, has thrived even as the federal government has treated it with “benign neglect” for decades. That benign neglect would serve it better than the barricades now surrounding it.

Eberly writes that the NPS has already gone out of its way to disrupt an event at the farm: “The first casualty of this arbitrary action was the McLean Chamber of Commerce who were having a large annual event at the Pavilion on Tuesday evening. The NPS sent the Park Police over to remove the Pavilion’s staff and Chamber volunteers from the property while they were trying to set up for their event.

Eberly says that individuals and families saved the farm when the NPS zeroed its budget in 1980, so there is no need for the service now to shut it down or barricade its facilities, as it is doing. The NPS claims, in its actions at the World War II Memorial in Washington this week, that it doesn’t want to go around closing monuments and parks, but it is taking these actions because it is worried about staffing and security.

Eberly’s response is as clear as can be. “What utter crap. We have operated the Farm successfully for 32 years after the NPS cut the Farm from its budget in 1980 and are fully staffed and prepared to open today. But there are barricades at the Pavilions and entrance to the Farm. And if you were to park on the grass and visit on your own, you run the risk of being arrested. Of course, that will cost the NPS staff salaries to police the Farm against intruders while leaving it open will cost them nothing.”

Closing the self-sufficient farm “is not about the money,” Eberly said. “It’s about making a point.”

Eberly warns in her email that visitors now face the risk of arrest if they try to visit the farm, not because it cannot be staffed — her staff were ready to run the farm today, as they have for years — but because the National Park Service, in her words, has become “arrogant, arbitrary and vindictive.”

On the park’s website, a statement adds more details.

We weren’t even informed of this until mid-day Monday in spite of their managers having our email addresses and cell numbers… Every appeal our Board of Directors made to the NPS administration was denied. They feel that as “landlord” they have absolute control of their property.

We have operated the Farm successfully for 32 years after the NPS cut the Farm from its budget in 1980 and are fully staffed and prepared to open today. But there are barricades at the Pavilions and entrance to the Farm. And if you were to park on the grass and visit on your own, you run the risk of being arrested. Of course, that will cost the NPS staff salaries to police the Farm against intruders while leaving it open will cost them nothing.

We don’t see how that benefits the mission of the National Park Service if it really is to preserve and protect. Or is it really just about control?

Control is what this entire battle is about. Will America be more like the Farm or like the NPS?

    Well, thought the NPS honchos, it’s all about all that colonial stuff anyway, who’ll miss it. That kind of stuff just puts bad ideas into people’s heads, like why the American Revolution was fought by all those gun-clingers. Dangerous people.

    • Biff Henderson

      Dangerous indeed.

      FWIW, I was a kid on Cape Cod at the end of the fifties when the Outer Cape was seized to make a national seashore. No more midnight surfcasting, no more driftwood fires. Campaign hat wearing nazis ejected the locals with threats should they visit the ocean without permission and outside permitted hours. They were delighted to be smirking bullies are very easy to dislike.

    Obama thinks and acts like a dictator….

      This is what happens when you put a n****r in charge of the gubmint. I am sorry for being so vile, but just look at the results of having a president with non opposable thumbs controlling the United States.

      • vulgar_imposter

        There you go. Finally, a Republican who is willing to say what’s on all Republican minds. I applaud you, Klansman. You actually have the guts to say what’s on your mind. It’s true that you are an uneducated racist pig. But you drove straight to the heart of the modern conservative movement. It’s all about race for the GOP.

        • Gislia Jackson

          I have a master’s degree, idiot.

          • Steeloak

            Owned! lol

            Anyone with a pulse can get a master’s from the Univ. of Phoenix.

          • ziggy zoggy

            You don’t have one. A degree or a pulse. If you had a pulse, you wouldn’t be impotent, would you, limpy?

          • Gislia Jackson

            It’s from the University of Reno, NV, in English literature. Not quite the same AA degrees that obama has.

        • Mimi Mayes

          She’s a troll, idiot. Well-known & overused technique. Duh

        • patron

          I’m betting you and the OP are one in the same.

          Can’t reform society because there is no crime, so create the crime yourself. Great idea, right out of the big government activist playbook.

        • ziggy zoggy

          Vulgar Impotence,

          Every discussion is based on Democrats Vs. Republicans. Yeah. Right, you lunatic.

          Save your projection for the other ret@rds. Leftists and Blacks OWN racism in America.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        “This is what happens when you put a n****r in charge of the gubmint.”

        You’re a vile leftist. Skin color has nothing to do with a communist jihadi trying to destroy our government other than the spirit of affirmative action and “white guilt” helping him every step of the way. Their racism doesn’t justify yours. You should oppose racism as false, not with your own false ideas in direct opposition.

        • Gislia Jackson

          I am a leftist? You are insane.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            “I am a leftist? You are insane.”

            The vast majority of leftists are dupes. Virtually all modern racist ideologies come from the left.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            “I am a leftist? You are insane.”

            I forgot to say that if you’re not a leftist posing as a “conservative” or something like that, writing insane racist comments to make conservatives look bad, then you must be a dupe of the left.

          • ziggy zoggy

            You might as well be a leftist. Racist comments like yours do as much for the left as Obama does for Islam.

            It doesn’t matter if you’re right or wrong. Writing crap like that helps the left. Yeah, it was funny, but it hurt your cause.

        • Michael__Durham

          Gislia Jackson = another Leftist False-Flagger, here to falsely project “our” views, along with the usual outrageous language and vile (and irrelevant) racist epithets.

          Common, dirty Leftist trick.

          • vulgar_imposter

            No, she’s just an honest conservative.

          • ziggy zoggy

            Right. Can you name a single honest leftist on the planet? Marx and Engels are dead, so don’t bother with them.

          • Michael__Durham

            Bullsh*t. All this proves is that you DemonRAT communist vermin are well networked.

      • Daniel Greenfield

        This is what happens when you put a Communist in charge of a country.

        It’s happened in Latin America, Russia and Asia

        • ziggy zoggy

          An anti-White racist commie who hates America and loves Islam.

          He also seems to have a suspicious birth certificate, Social Security number and unexplained effeminacy.

          But it’s no big deal. Just “right-wing” conspiracy theories. Why shouldn’t America be more like Cuba, Russia or North Korea?

      • ziggy zoggy

        Non opposable thumbs. That’s funny. Racist as HeII, but funny.

    • vulgar_imposter

      Please explain.

        He thinks he has a mandate to “transform” the nation and more important to him, the world. He behaves like a president of the world trying to reign in the “dangerous rogue nation.”

      • Veracious_one

        two examples of Obamas gestapo tactics are given….
        A WW2 memorial that doesn’t require staffing is being barricaded to keep WW2 veterans out and a Colonial Farm that isn’t even operated or funded by the government was forcibly shut at virtual gunpoint…..neither has anything to do with the government shut down….and then there’s Obamas abuse of executive orders and abuse of executive power…Obama believes he’s omnipotent…a common trait among dictators….

        • vulgar_imposter

          So you’re comparing the closing of a monument to the deaths of millions at the hands of the Nazis. Yeah, that makes sense. Republicans are so silly and stupid.

          • Veracious_one

            The Nazis started out by closing those stores, churches and businesses that offended them.

          • ziggy zoggy

            No. He did not make that comparison. Lefties are so vile and stupid.

          • derpdog

            One step at a time. He has a few more constitutional freedoms to trample on before he can be quite as bold as the Fuhrer.

      • ziggy zoggy

        Please explain your ignorance and dishonesty. Public education? Fanaticism? Stupidity? Gay fixation on Barbie’s pal Ken?

        Being a leftist means never having to admit your mental illness.

    • gerry

      He is a tinpot dictator inside the US.He got is butt kicked by Putin and Assad,he has got to take it on someone.That someone is the American people for which he has utter contempt.

    To bad we are the property of a Police State, doing what we’re told to do.

  • Habbgun

    We should have an honest conversation about race. Basically Obama is a dead skunk in the middle of the road. Black on the edges, white in the center (from his communist mother and grandfather) and spurts communist red under pressure.

    The Occupy movement was made up of left wing whites longing for the good old days of a dominant Europe. Obama’s mother except for the accident of when she was born could have been urinating into a milk carton with the rest of them.

    Let’s be honest about who the leftists are. I’m tired of hearing about white victimhood when I see white leftist beneficiaries everywhere or am I wrong about Al Gore, Hilary Clinton, John Kerry and on and on.

  • gritosdelcongo

    I wish I lived close enough to try to get arrested. It would give me standing to sue the government.

    Our own home-grown GESTAPO. They are here and ready to ‘serve’. Of course “we were only obeying orders”.

    One Big Almighty Mistake America

  • Jakareh

    I think it’s a mistake to make dehumanizing or racist comments about Barack Obama because issues then become our “bigotry” rather than his incompetence and jihad-supporting treachery. Clearly, Obama is as much of a man as any of us, only a very bad one.

    • ziggy zoggy

      Point taken but Obama is not as much of a man as I am. He is an effeminate weakling and lying scumbag, Marxist islamophile.

      • Jakareh

        In retrospective, I think “human being” was more appropriate than “man”. It was too late when I wrote that.

  • morris adams

    whatever happened to telling someone to go fuck themselves?? you should laugh in their face! i don’t understand. this would be like the police stopping me from cutting my grass ’cause Toro went outta business! i can’t even make a logical analogy! what am i missing?? this horseshit has GOT TO STOP!

    RESIST!!!!!!!!!!

    • ziggy zoggy

      WWII vets did tell the Obamaburo to go fuck itself. The only reason they got away with it is because they are in their 90s and barely alive.

      Until everybody stands up at once, the Obamaburo will continue to get away with its thuggery. America is like that gaggle of gawking spectators who watched a racist scumbag beat a Samaritan on a bus a week ago. They were more worried about possible criticism than the safety of a decent man.

      Americans are pu$$ie$ now.
