Veteran Tries to Send Obama a Message About Benghazi… You Won’t Believe What They Did to Him

Obama-vfw-podium

President Obama gave a speech on veteran’s issues and the Iran nuclear deal to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Pittsburgh yesterday. One veteran in attendance had something to say to the President.

The veteran held a sign reminding those in the attendance of the White House’s failures in the Benghazi attacks that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Others were displeased with his sign. They pulled and pushed the elderly veteran down and grabbed the sign from him.

It is unsure whether the President saw the veteran being manhandled. It’s ironic that as Obama spoke about honoring soldiers’ service, one of them was being tossed to the ground because he was holding a sign. Clearly, the situation could have been handled better.

If you wanted to send a message to the President, what would your sign say? Please comment below.

    I was at the convention. This never happened look at the drapes on the stage from where the President is standing Blue, compared to the one with the Veteran gray. Among many other differences Veterans at the Pittsburg convention were either wearing suits or VFW shirts.

  2. ASteve says:

    I was contemplating whether to join the VFW or not. After looking at this article, I think not. I don’t want to be a part of the hardcore politics these old goats want to play. I’ll stick with being a Lone Wolf” Veteran and help out vets in my own way.

    When you decide to physically assault someone, it’s always good to make sure you’re not being filmed. Whoops.

  4. James says:

    Everyone, don’t forget; he passed an executive order that no one can protest within a certain distance from him. One of those things an emperor or king does.

  5. Paul says:

    1 white guy and 2 black men seem to think the elderly white man dosen’t have freedom of speech. If he held up a sign saying black lives matter all would have been well. What a sad state our Country has become.

    These are the conditions set for those who wish to live in OUR country as a TRUE American. If you don’t follow these standards or won’t then get out of OUR country, period!!!

    “In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes and an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language…And we have room for one sole loyalty and that is loyalty to the American people. “

    Theodore Roosevelt

    is supposed to maintain these documents. Even after getting numerous letters from commanders to supervisors, the VA still runs you through the circus. still waiting smc dishonered women vet

  11. Bronson says:

    The people that treated that vet.in that manner should be kicked out of the V F W . and never be allowed to join any veterans club again .

  12. Wendy says:

    Shame on those vets who denied this man his freedom of speech.

  13. Jeff says:

    Seems to me the President needs to take ownership of those lives lost because his administration did nothing to protect them. If he, and his retinue, are so thin-skinned that they can’t stand the scrutiny, perhaps they’re in the wrong line of work. It also seems to me that a veteran, especially, has a right to speak his mind….even more so than other Americans!
