Biden admin rescinds permit for annual veterans motorcycle event: Reports

The group American Veterans has staged an annual Memorial Day motorcycle rally through the nation’s capital for roughly the past three decades. Known as “Rolling to Remember,” the ride was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

While participants looked forward to its revival this year, the Biden administration is reportedly standing in the way.

“Granted permits by every administration”

According to the Daily Wire, the Pentagon has refused to issue the group a permit allowing the rally to begin in its parking lot, citing a continuing concern about the public health crisis.

The news was met with widespread disappointment, including from U.S. Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL).

In a statement to Fox News this week, he expressed his frustration, noting that the event has been “granted permits by every administration, Democrat and Republican,” for many years in the past.

“The Biden Administration’s decision to end this Memorial Day tradition flies in the face of the freedoms that so many have died to protect,” Mast added. “We are blessed beyond words to be citizens of the greatest country on Earth and only live free thanks to the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.”

The Florida Republican claimed that “it is easier to cross the border illegally than it is to get a permit to pay our respects to our nation’s fallen heroes” under the current president’s leadership.

“Flies in the face of the freedoms”

A permit was initially granted to the group earlier this year but was subsequently rescinded.

For that reason, Mast sent a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin in which he argued that the Pentagon’s decision put the entire event in jeopardy.

He requested that the permit be reinstated “in a timely manner,” going on to argue that Americans owe their freedom to the sacrifices made by the military members and veterans honored by the motorcycle ride.

The Biden administration’s apparent efforts to restrict the event, Mast wrote, “flies in the face of the freedoms that so many have died to protect.”

For his part, however, the group’s executive director Joe Chennelly said that, despite the setback, his organization is “committed to still having a central staging area” and declared that organizers “have a Plan B and a Plan C.”

  1. I would be VERY disappointed if the American Veterans group would close up their tent and cow to this obvious gesture to quash Americanism and patriotic tributes to our revered fallen. This is precisely the type of situation where we, as law-abiding citizens need to take a rebellious stand to show this Leftist regime that we cannot be intimidated and controlled. I am in FULL support of this tribute to our heroes and heroines of our glorious military . . . both living and deceased. Wake up America !

  2. The Russocraps must really want a civil war. I myself pray that they get it! Death to traitors. Get the popcorn out everybody it’s coming!

    the named part herein, AUTHORIZES
    the Free Citizens(s) to defend themselves and their state in place
    of TTEASONOUS GOVERNMENT.
    **note; In NOT defending our borders,
    government gives “aid & comfort” to a
    hostile foreign invasion; and This, Under Article3, Section3 of Our Constiturionis properly labeled TREASON!” AND THIS ADMINISTRATION SHALL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE! Thank You. Get a copy of the Constitution and read it. Because your rights are being taken from under this severely corrupt administration. It needs to be dealt with now & at the ballot box in 2022 & 2024 legally at the polls.It’s your rights & freedoms being taken. I know what I will vote for if you love your, your grandchildren & greatgrandchildren you wake now. Before it’s to late.
    I was in.the United States Air Force.
    I took basically the same oath. To protect & Defend the United States Constitution against al Foreign & Domestic Terrorist! What Joe & Kamala have done at the border is Domestic Terrorism against American & every American. Putting illegal aliens
    Before American Citizens & making us pay for them.is severely Corrupt.

It’s your choice you want free & rights or government ruleling of your freedoms & rights. Once they are gone they are going and all my friends & brothers & sisters that died fighting for
    them died for nothing. Try explaining that to their families. Please think about it. They are coming for us next
    If we do not fight for our rights & freedoms! I would rather die fighting
    Then let them remove my God Given rights & freedoms . Something that is not theirs to take. They want power & Control of everyone’s lives. They work for not us for them.

    Nothing is Free Someone paid for your freedom. Remember: All Gave Some
    Some Gave All! For us to be Blessed with what they left us. Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights. Some paid with their life & blood! A very high price to pay! Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness!
    Earned by the governed not the government! We tell them what we want they get paid to do what we ask. Not the other way around.
