Conservative radio host Mark Levin was “stewing” on Wednesday thinking about the Obama administration’s efforts to block veterans from visiting the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. during the government shutdown — and he wasn’t shy about letting everyone know.
“I want to say this loud and clear to the people on Capitol Hill who are listening, to this administration,” Levin said on his radio program. “You lay one damn hand on one of those World War II vets at that memorial and I’ll bring half a million people to that damn memorial! You got that?!”
Levin went on to accuse the White House of playing “damn games” during the partial government shutdown.
“You’ll ignite a movement in this country like you’ve never seen before! The biker patriot army – veterans from all over the country, every single war and battle in this country, Republican, Democrat, Independent, whatever!” he warned.
The radio host didn’t let up, reminding everyone that the WWII heroes are in their 80s and 90s. “I’ll be damned if this president or anybody else is going to shut down that WWII memorial,” he added.
Levin continued, reiterating his warning: “So let me repeat! You lay one hand on one of those men and arrest them for going to their memorial, which they fought for, which was not paid by you dammit, it was paid by the American people – we will come out of every town and city in this nation! We will come out of every county. And both coasts! Both borders! And we will march on Washington against your tyranny!”
Levin may not have to follow through on his threat as the National Park Service has apparently decided to allow veterans to visit the WWII memorial going forward.
