Patriotic American Suggests Spray-Painting Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall during Anti-War Protest

An IndyMedia poster has suggested bringing spraypaint to deface the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Washington, D.C. during an anti-war rally on March 17.

It is not known if Ramsey Clark, Maxine Waters, Cynthia McKinney, Medea Benjamin or the leaders of the eight Islamic organizations sponsoring the event have any knowledge of these or similar plans by the activists they've attracted, though they are aware of a counter-demonstration by a conglomeration of veterans' groups and concerned citizens called A Gathering of Eagles, which will be at the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial to protect it from just the kind of attack promoted on IndyMedia.

Cindy Sheehan, who plans on attending the anti-war protest, derided the veterans as "abused and misused in your war of choice" (referring to Vietnam) and stated that these veterans were "poor misguided, brainwashed and propagandized."

I am going to be there proudly with my U.S. Navy Veterans Hat and all my ribbons and medals. I pray to the Lord Almighty they don't try to deface our memorials or "spit on me" or my fellow vet's and co-workers that are going to be there with me!!!

I never served, but I will be there to support those that made my Country great. The Capitol Police just stepped back and let these guys spray paint on the Capitol steps, it will be interesting to see what LE does when thousands of people who are steadfast against the defacing of our National Monuments meet those who wish to do so.

I can't be there for health reasons but I know there will be people there who are ready, willing and able to do whatever it takes to keep anything from happening to The Wall. I'm not really worried about anything happening to The Wall but I am worried sick about some people I care about ending up in jail for defending it. I linked at and

Here's a tip: Pack some Kevlar along with the spray paint.
