Radio host Mark Levin sent a stinging message and unbridled warning to Capitol Hill politicos on his show this week: Don't touch the vets, or I'll bring on the protesters.
"I want to say this loud and clear to the people on Capitol Hill who are listening, to this administration," he said, The Blaze reported. "You lay one damn hand on one of those World War II vets at that memorial and I'll bring half a million people to that damn memorial. You got that?"
Mr. Levin also said the White House was playing "damn games" with the shutdown.
And his threats to politicos continued: "You'll ignite a movement in this country like you've never seen before. The biker patriot army — veterans from all over the country, every single war and battle in this country, Republican, Democrat, independent, whatever."
He also spoke directly about President Obama's role in the shutdown.
"I'll be damned if this president or anybody else is going to shut down that WWII memorial," he said. "So let me repeat. You lay one hand on one of those men and arrest them for going to their memorial, which they fought for, which was not paid by you dammit, it was paid by the American people — we will come out of every town and city in this nation. We will come out of every county, and both coasts, both borders. And we will march on Washington against your tyranny."
The National Park Service has since granted veterans access to the memorials in Washington, D.C.
