LOS ANGELES – The same American Flag that hung proudly on the front gates of the Los Angeles VA on Sunday in honor of Memorial Day but was ordered removed by VA bureaucrats, on Monday it was attached to a pole and carried proudly in the Canoga Park Memorial Day Parade along with “Mr. Patriot,” Ted Hayes.
Why is it that when this same Flag was presented during the Parade, thousands of proud Americans stood, applauded and saluted It, but when the same Flag was presented on the front gates of the Los Angeles VA, It was demeaned, disrespected and ordered taken down?
For the record, the Los Angeles VA has a long history of disrespecting the American Flag and retaliating against Veterans who defend this sacred land under our Nation’s “Stars and Stripes”. (see attachment and read this link)
After Veterans won a major victory in Federal Court adjudicating nine VA real estate deals that are “unauthorized by law and therefore void,” which reinforced why we had previously hung the American Flag in distress — “when life and property are in extreme danger” — VA Secretary Robert McDonald maliciously surrendered our Veterans land back to the illegal occupants under the clever ruse of it being a “settlement agreement.”
Benedict Arnold would be proud of the Secretary because he failed at surrendering West Point’s sacred property during the American Revolution, while this West Point graduate was successful in surrendering Veterans’ sacred property during the Veterans Revolution.
Secretary McDonald’s VA bureaucrats have shamefully denied American Military Veterans the right to proudly hang our American Flag in honor of those Veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice to our nation’s citizenry, denied us the right to be interviewed on VA property by a major news service about this illegal land use through a bona fide news reporter who is an Iraqi War Veteran, and denied the Region 9 Director of Vietnam Veterans of America (California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Hawaii, Guam and the Philippines) the right to host a long-term Veteran Stand Down and “Welcome Home Reception Center” on the Veterans Grand Lawn as an emergency triage to house and care for thousands of disabled and homeless Veterans.
On the other hand, if you need a safe place to store a fleet of new cars, build a collegiate baseball diamond, a private school athletic complex, or a public dog park, etc., see VA Secretary McDonald and he’ll make you a deal that would make Satan proud. .
Now, more than ever, Veterans need to unify and fight this traitorous, domestic enemy and take back the National Veterans Home and bring our homeless Veterans “Home.”
“Those who voluntarily put power into the hands of a tyrant or an enemy must not be surprised if it is turned against themselves.” – Aesop
God Bless America and the Veterans Revolution!
