Ghouls Plan to Desecrate Veterans Day

• Views: 716

We’re supposed to believe that the left “supports the troops,” but events like this one, planned for Veterans Day in Los Angeles, tear away the mask of phony “caring” and reveal the true ugliness of their ghoulish agenda.

Veterans for Peace Sponsor ‘100 Coffin March’ at Arlington West Memorial
Seeking 400 pallbearers
Saturday November 12th, next to the pier at Santa Monica Beach:
At 9:00 AM — Assemble coffins (made of lightweight cardboard.)
At 11:30 AM — Free T-shirts distributed to 400 pallbearers.
At Noon — Reverent, processional march will begin, heading north on Ocean from the pier, then will make an orderly about-face at Wilshire and return to place the coffins among the crosses at the beach.

RSVP: tonia4@earthlink.net
