From the groups official statement:
We have, as a group, been prevented from certain groups that have piggy-backed off our grassroots efforts, to effectively create a comprehensive media message campaign. We made the mistake of trying to partner with some Washington insiders that thwarted many of our genuine concerns for keeping this apolitical and grassroots. While we support many of those groups common causes for Veterans, we do not support the manner in which they go about it. We chose instead to not incite or create panic.
By the way, it was hardly 1 million, but it was just big enough to have Confederate flags and other familiar Tea “We’re NuT Racists” slogans (lay down the quran, etc…).
Now I guess Sarah Palin and Ted ‘My Dad was a Communist’ Cruz gets to call the Veterans communists.
