Patriotic tourists remove barricades, climb Lincoln Memorial


On the same weekend that brought the “Million Vet March” to Washington, D.C., another fairly large group of patriots – protesters, you might say – showed they, too, have had enough of the shutdown closures and weren’t going to take it anymore.

So, they moved the barricades out of the way and made their way up the steps, and past the Park Police, to the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday, KLTV 7 reported.

Peacefully, but cheering at breaking through the barriers – or “Barry-cades” as many on the Internet coined them  – happy tourists used the opportunity to send a message to Washington: Enough is enough.

Taylor Hemness from KLTV 7 reported this from the scene:

[The protesters] went completely up those steps, past the National Parks Service members who didn’t do anything to stop them as they made their way up to the Lincoln monument asking people to come with them, begging them to make people in DC listen to what they were doing.

However, according to this tweet, Park Police ultimately kicked the group out:
