While claiming there is no money as a result of the government shutdown to keep national parks open, the federal government is simultaneously paying for private armed goons to keep Americans out of historic sites located in national parks like Independence Hall in Philadelphia.
The video above shows armed private goons who refuse to identify themselves or respond to the public guarding Independence Hall, which is situated in Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Independence Hall is where the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were debated and adopted.
In the clip, a citizen asks National Park Service employees to identify themselves. The NPS officers refuse to do so and one of them walks away. By this point, some of the private goons had already fled.
The video makers then attempt to question two of the private guards, who also refuse to identify themselves. The guards threaten to arrest the men as they ask, “Who do you work for?”
