Like legions of law enforcement officers at simple patriotic gatherings in a city park, the broader American public is now feeling yet another effect of the kind, tolerant, inclusive liberal left.
The Secret Service has announced that thanks to the new strain of constantly angry, constantly protesting, assaulting, rioting, burning, looting, disorderly radical hooligans NONE of us may now stroll along the walkway in front of OUR presidential White House.
On its “First 100 Days – The latest news on President Donald Trump’s first 100 days” page NBC News has reported;
“Secret Service Closes White House Sidewalk to Public”
Washington, D.C.’s residents and visitors will no longer be able to stroll along the sidewalk on the south side of the White House, the U.S. Secret Service announced.
The closure, which began at 11 p.m. Wednesday, includes the stretch of sidewalk and grass between the south fence and E Street NW, from West Executive Avenue to East Executive Avenue, the Secret Service said in a statement.
The area has been closed each night from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. since 2015, but this new restriction makes it off-limits at all hours.”
Isn’t that nice? Each year hundred upon hundreds of school buses filled with children on civics field trips make the voyage from all across America to our nation’s capital in order to see historic sites, take tours and pictures, etc., of our nation’s most historic buildings and monuments. Like the White House.
Thanks to our new breed of fascist, anti-free speech crybabies one sure stop along their tour path just got 86’ed. Same with families on vacation, tourists who’ve paid thousands of dollars to fly across oceans to visit the birthplace of democracy, you, me and everyone else.
The NBC News piece continues:
“The Secret Service must continually evaluate security protocols and continually balance the security of our protected persons and facilities with the public’s ability to access them,” [Secret Service Communications Director Cathy] Milhoan said in a statement.
The White House has had multiple fence jumpers in recent months. In March, a man jumped the fence with two cans of mace and was on White House grounds for more than 15 minutes before being captured. President Donald Trump was in the residence at the time, and two Secret Service officers were fired after the incident.
“Restricting public access to the fence line will not only serve to lessen the possibility of individuals illegally accessing the White House grounds, but will also create a clear visual break to enable Secret Service officers to identify and respond to potential hazards including individuals attempting to scale the fence.”
So now the millions suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome have cost everyone –children, adults, Americans, foreign nationals,…everyone– access to the residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. A building upon which construction began in 1792 and one of the most revered landmarks in the entire world.
Thanks a lot, liberals. We really appreciate it.
