Thousands of protesters led by Sarah Palin and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, marched to the World War II memorial Sunday tearing down barricades and chanting “Tear down these walls.”
The “Million Vet March on the Memorial,” which bills itself as a non-partisan group, was also led by anti-Obamacare Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah.
Marchers carried Confederate flags. Another held a sign that read “Respect Our Vets.” All the leaders at the march were either speakers or attendees at the Value Voters Summit, according to Raw Story.
The group removed orange cones, saw horses, and three-foot-tall aluminum gates.
They borrowed from former President Ronald Reagan’s challenge to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin wall.
They also reportedly sang “God Bless America.”
