Federal Troops Attack Veterans Marching in DC

Our government has not been completely innocent in the way it's treated it's own citizens.

Those who are without sin cast the first stone. How can we cast the first stone at other countries when we have this black mark on our own history?

March of the Bonus Army - Part 1


March of the Bonus Army - Part 2

March of the Bonus Army - Part 3

I myself am having a difficult time believing the part about Patton and the swamp. However, if it is true, I have no doubt he is spending his eternity in that very special place reserved for those who commit such acts.


The Veterans March of 1932

In June 1932 a small band of World War One Veterans calling themselves the Bonus Expeditionary Force or BEF started gathering in Washington to protest Congress' delay in the payment of their War Bonds they were promised. By mid August their numbers had grown to between 15,000 and 24,00 depending on the source as more and more Veterans and their families gathered in Washington demanding that they be paid.

On August 28.1932 President Hoover ordered General Douglas Macarthur to evict the Veterans. Macarthur ordered then Majors George Patton and Dwight Eisenhower to mobilize the Federal troops out of Fort Myers, Virginia.

At 4:00 that afternoon Major Patton ordered the Calvary to charge the unarmed veterans and their families. Killing and wounding many of the marchers as well as a few by standers, one of whom was a United States Senator. As the day progressed into night the Army attacked the Veterans main encampment with small arms, bayonets, machineguns and tanks. In all it is reported that some 1,600 people, mostly woman and children were killed in the daylong struggle. Nobody knows for sure the exact number as there were those who had escapped the city during the fighting and who died of their injuries while on the roads heading back to their homes.

Thanks Mike...

But how about that US Senator? You'd think that'd be headline news.

I am no history expert or know of this other than what I just have read above and searched online and don't doubt our governments evil intentions, but I would like to know the truth. Why do they say a US Senator died in the crowd of the riots and yet no news of it. A senator cannot go missing without someone knowing about it!

I think it's a lie. For some odd reason, people embellish

even the most outrageous things. I don't get it either.

Truth is stranger than fiction. Movie is funny, although a very serious subject.

Searching the internet

and still no name of a senator that was killed in 1932.

Oh my goodness

This is perfectly awful. This is the United States of America? Am I dreaming?

Also, I was totally surprised to find that the author wrote "Goodbye Darkness." I read that several years ago and it was one of the BEST books about WWII in the South Pacific I have ever read.

I will definitely be buying this book. I am just sick about this history you have shared. Just sick!

The lip of truth shall be established forever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment...Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are His delight. Prov 12:19,22

This is what I've been trying to say. They TERRORIZED our

great-grandparents into submission and either killed or sterilized the ones that wouldn't play along with what we have now. If you think you remember freedom--you're wrong. The day they stole the money, it all ended. None of you ever had any money either. You are a 3rd generation slave and you don't even notice. Wake up everybody! It's the end of the road and we can either make a u-turn or go off a cliff. But you need to understand who your enemy is and attack them hard. It's the international bankers, the bilderbergers, the CFR, the Trilateral Commission. And of course, the families that run them.

And they will face God for what they have done

And they will have to find forgiveness from those whose lives they have taken.

And those who ordered this and those who have followed them and those who have covered up the lie will also have to find forgiveness for they are complicit in the crime.

Please watch Money masters and get everyone you can to watch it also.

These are the people who are in power and still commit murder today.

Act as thee have faith and faith will be given thee.


That is almost unbelievable.

All of it is sickening....but women and children??

1,600 during day + 2,400 in swamp = 4,000 people killed.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

It's hard to imagine the amount of propaganda we've endured

generation after generation.

At least good ol' Smedley Butler stuck up for these people. Here he is speaking at :47 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkmo4ygPTjc

What was the name of the senator killed?

Anyone know? It's not on that website.


Deliver us from evil!!!

Wow, I have never heard

of this. Amazing and disgusting.

I've done some pevious checking

on this account/story but cannot verify if it is true.

Apparently it can be verified

in a book by military historian author William Manchester, The Glory and the Dream: A Narrative History of America, 1932-1972

Cannot verify that

these troops were ever attacked or that some were taken to the everglades and machine gunned in the swamp? Or both?

I've read about this before, however the highlighted portion

I had never read before and is truly sickening.

George Patton and Dwight Eisenhower? Well, we all saw where this

was going..

If you wont fight for the right when you can easily win...you may...have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival [or] when there is no chance of victory...it's better to perish than to live as slaves.
