Let’s call it Operation Take Back America.

As part of the Honor Flight project, World War II veterans have been taken to Washington DC, cost free, to see the memorial erected in their honor on the National Mall.

Due to the government shutdown, National Park Service police put up barriers preventing access. According to Leo Shane III, White House and Veterans Affairs reporter for Stars and Stripes, the veterans knocked over those barriers.

Awesome. Indeed, Shane is all over it. With this gem:

GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert is on hand:

We’ve been expecting to see busloads of shipped-in low-information voters crying at the gates of government-operated tourist attractions, but this sure is an interesting wrinkle. God bless our vets.
