No Way To Treat Our Veterans

Many applaud the fact that Robert Rosebrock, a 75-year-old military veteran was acquitted for hanging two napkin-sized American flags on a fence near the entrance of a Veterans Affairs facility in West Los Angeles. Well, I for one am not applauding his acquittal.

In fact, I’m beyond outraged that he was acquitted. I can find absolutely no rhyme or legitimate reason for his acquittal. If I now have your attention, I’ll explain to you why I’m angry that he was acquitted.

I’m furious with his acquittal because he should never have been charged. Robert Rosebrock gave his life and emotional well being to serve his country. And the thanks he received for his sacrifice was to be arrested and charged with placing two napkin-sized American flags on a fence of the Veteran Affairs facility? Are you freaking kidding me? How the sam-heck am I supposed to be pleased by what they did to a man who served his country and faced death in doing so?

Am I supposed to be pleased that this man, who should be treated with respect, admiration, and gratitude for serving his country, was treated with such abhorrent hatred and disrespect by yellow, gutless, paycheck grabbing, commie bas**rds masquerading as military, when in fact all they are doing is stealing taxpayer money to abuse our Veterans? I think not.

Robert Rosebrock was railroaded in a power play by a vengeful cabal of contumelious neo-Leninists in an act tantamount to Shakespeare’s Lady Macbeth. In fact, the Veterans Affairs could have starred as Lady Macbeth. Macbeth himself is often mistakenly viewed as the villain in the Shakespearian play, but the truth is that Lady Macbeth was the true evil. It was she who manipulated Macbeth through Erebusic subterfuge into killing King Duncan, whose murder served her demonic self-interest.

The singular purpose of Veterans Affairs is to work to meet the interests and well being of our veterans. It is not to steal money from them by having anti-military trash who could not care less about the best interests of veterans, occupy positions of oversight.

What was done to Robert Rosebrock was a transpicuous act of revenge in an attempt to put a man they viewed as less than human, in his place, and in so doing send a threatening message to other veterans who might follow his example.

As reported by City News Service (April 18. 2017): Robert Rosebrock was cited on Memorial Day 2016 for allegedly displaying two napkin-sized American flags on a fence adjacent to the “Great Lawn Gate” entrance to the Veterans Park. He and fellow veterans have been assembling at the site nearly every Sunday and Memorial Day for the past nine years to protest what they believe is the VA’s failure to make full use of the expansive property for the benefit and care of veterans, particularly homeless veterans.

At the conclusion of a bench trial, U.S. Magistrate Judge Steve Kim found Rosebrock not guilty of the violation, which carries a maximum six-month prison sentence. The judge concluded that no evidence was presented showing Rosebrock lacked permission to post the flags or that Rosebrock had displayed them in the first place.

This decision isn’t worthy of applause. It is worthy of the harshest rebuke. The fact that Robert Rosebrock was treated with such disrespect is a disgrace and abrogation of everything America promised her veterans. Veterans who served in combat can never truly be repaid for their service, and to treat them as this so-called Veterans Affairs facility treated Robert Rosebrock is unconscionable.

I submit every management person in that Veterans Affairs office should be discharged from duty and barred from ever working in any military capacity again. They should be scorned and publicly ridiculed.

I’m not applauding the fact that Robert Rosebrock was acquitted; I am strenuously condemning the fact that it was necessary for one of our Veterans to be forced to defend his actions of posting the flag his brothers and sisters died for on the fence of an agency funded to care for the needs of Robert Rosebrock and all veterans.

This is a demonstrable example of the depth of disrespect our Veterans are met with by the very agencies that the American taxpayers fund to provide for Veterans. A fact that I am reminded of every time I drive the I-4 from my home in Orlando, Florida to downtown Orlando and look at the number of beddings underneath the bridge structures.

    I recently met a friends son, age 24, going thru his last couple of weeks training as special forces army. then off to eastern asia to serve. what strikes me
    is the little thought given to to these young men/women who actually are proud to
    serve in u.s.a. military. Robert Rosebrock was once the same age, taking part and putting himself in harms way to serve his country. (bas**rds) is too polite by far.
    my meeting of youth that offer their lives to serve was quite a reminder to this
    much older (usmc 66/72) veteran, that the now thankless folks who have no respect
    for such don’t have a clue what some do to protect their foolish lives.
    tks for your well put rant. as always keep it up, great stuff……t

    I thank you Mr Massey! I wish we had more like minded people like yourself. You are absolutely correct in that this never should have occurred in the first place. I lament the depths of depravity that some of the left will stoop to to slander our new president and for the ill treatment that our veterans endure daily.

    As a veteran tired of the abuse attempted to be heaped on me, I wouldn’t have gone along peacefully, I never would have accepted the arrest, but would have fought to the death over the total disrespect being shown, not for me, but for the Constitution I upheld for thirty years, with great effort, at great personal cost.
    Our “justice department” has been on a spree of serial crimes, our Intelligence services have been openly committing treason, the former president has fomented an insurgency in my Country, not his, and we have not only people, nor just communities, but towns, cities, whole states openly defying the law, and demanding the law be changed, while standing on their intent to continue to flagrantly break the law.
    There isn’t a lawful government in America, my county government obliges the federal criminals, not one state will take up arms against a “Treasonous state”, which is imperilling our Nation’s total Security, thus no state will act as Sovereign, leaving Sovereignty to those who steal it, or those willing to stand up and defend it against the war declared on the United States, America, and the founding of our nation.
    When no other sovereign remains reliable in maintaining our laws, our principles, in upholding the most fundamental means of security of a Nation, it falls to the Sovereign Citizen, to assume all the powers of Sovereignty, and in doing so, such a Citizen has withdrawn his consent to be governed by a criminal and illegal government. If there must be war, let it descend on me first. I call out for it, I name the evil, the government which refuses to operate within its only lawful domain, under the rule of law of the U.S. constitution.
    When we don’t rise up and defend our Nation, it goes away, but there will be many bodies left in the wake of destruction. Let mine be first.
    Semper Fidelis,

    Ronald Reagan said:

    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

    And we are definitely there.
