Legally Blind WWII Veteran Attacked While Defending The American Flag

98

WWII Veteran

One legally blind WWII veteran fought off assailants attempting to vandalize his American flag after destroying his “God Bless All Police” sign.

Howard Banks, a proud Texas veteran at 92 years old, reportedly heard noises outside his home and went to investigate after a string of vandalism previously resulted in the destruction of his American flag and Marine Corps colors.

Legally blind, Banks says he could not fully make out what the vandals were doing, but he quickly realized they could see him. Moments after he went outside, the vandals knocked him down.

“I turned and looked in the other direction, and about then – ‘wham!’ They knocked me down.”

Bank, a WWII veteran of the Pacific front survived Iwo Jima, is not deterred by the injuries, defending the flag is “the one thing I can cling to. Yet at my capacity, there’s not much I can do. But I can honor our flag.”

The attackers fled as nearby neighbors came to his aid. Banks was injured by the assault, which is a felony in Texas if the victim is elderly. But about the injuries, Banks commented, “I am durable. I can take it.”

Area police are investigating the attack.

Shoot these useless wastes of skin. Kneel them down on the fucking spot and empty a magazine into the backs of their heads. Then take the bodies and drop them on some America hating country sans parachute from 50,000 ft.

Fuck these useless pieces of garbage.

Better yet, why not get some live practice shooting of moving target and tie their hands and feet with a USA hating country’s flag and then have them taken up to 50,000 ft. and dropped out of plane sans parachute over Texas. Call it skeet shooting, Texas style.

Wastes of O2 and skin and definitely pieces of human garbage stew.

That Wilmington VA is corrupt. The previous Director went to NASA. She along with a psychologist placed a PRF in my chart after getting fired for whistleblowing about conditions at the facility. The DOJ is defending this mess and lies. The Congressional delegate Coons and Carper knows about these animals along with Shulkin who has been served with the lawsuit.

I find it hard to believe that there is any one that is a true liberal, same for true a conservative. They don’t say for all issues, if its liberal its fine, and if its conservative its not, and visa versa for conservatives. Things change, peoples belief shift, and other factors will give one a different perspective on an issue that they never experienced before. And, there minds will change from what they believed in the past.

@Lem: Lem, Google “The true origins of the financial crissis” All Clinton, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae!

Add Obozo to the mix with his so called “community organizing” if that is what you want to call busing minorities into banks, until they give out a subprime mortgages.

So you would like to drop Dubya’s “ownership society” out of the mix. Wall Street owns both parties since Nixon and Johnson.

There was nothing about Bush that instigated the subprime loan crash. It all started with Clinton and his thug AG, Janet Reno threatening banks over redlining. The banks had no choice but to make risky loans to people that had no business buying property. But banks willingly did it because they knew Fannie and Freddie would be buying the loan before the ink was dry on the contract. Dodd and Frank were the two nitwits that helped squash any action… Read more »

91 – Banks didn’t willingly do it – they engineered it. That shit wasn’t organic or otherwise part of a free market system. The end result? Big banks are bigger, small banks are gone, the taxpayer picked up the tab and is still giving away near-free money to the banksters. None of our leadership can avoid the pointed finger. Perhaps not Carter. I tend to think he gave them the finger and let bank rates rise. His debt by far… Read more »

Windguy, now all of that I will agree with. I didn’t mean to insinuate banks didn’t have any culpability in the housing mess, but giving Fannie and Freddie a blank check didn’t help. And neither did congress in passing Dodd-Frank. I think a big reason why the housing market has been slow to recover is the mess made by congress and the disaster they made with mortgages. Yet somehow people that have no business buying property are still able to… Read more »

Fannie and Freddy didn’t have a blank check. They had a gun to their heads. I’m not sure if it was put there by Clinton or Bush. If Clinton put it there Dubya took it out of his hands and continued to brandish it. And that seems most likely given the initial up turn in the housing market was part of Clinton’s surplus.

91Veteran

Lem, I agree with that somewhat. Fannie and Freddie starting going downhill fast when their board was stacked with Clinton hacks, including the infamous Jamie Gorellick. The board loosened the rules on buying bad paper simply to improve their bonuses, without a care in the world about the debt being foisted onto taxpayers. There was direct evidence that the debt burden at Fannie and Freddie was being manipulated simply to keep the money flowing, and bigger bonuses paid. Gorellick and… Read more »

91 – I have another angle. The delay in recovery – controlled by the banksters – not congress, was to enable a squeeze on foreclosed properties. Private funds swarmed in and bought up foreclosures and jacked rental prices up. Add to that, artificial price pressure on building materials, and only a portion of those who could build new homes, can. F&F were tools. The banks lobbied the rules of the rigged game.
