10,000 of these ex-soldiers marched on Washington in 1932.

On June 15th, the House of Representatives passed the Bonus Bill by 209 to176. A day later the Senate defeated it 62 to18.

The veterans were ordered to leave Washington and when they refused, they were driven by force from Washington camps on 28th July, by troops under the command of General Douglas MacArthur.

General Douglas MacArthur  defended his actions, with the claim that the 10,000 USA war veterans were communists.

One more time:

" General Douglas MacArthur  defended his actions, with the claim that the 10,000 USA war veterans were communists."

Herbert Hoover, on the 29th of July, 1932, said ( or words to the effect of )

" A challenge to the authority of the United States Government has been met, swiftly and firmly. "

( an obvious reference to the 10,000 American World War 1 War Veteran's turned communists )

" After months of patient indulgence, the Government met overt lawlessness as it always must be met if the cherished processes of self-government are to be preserved. "

" We cannot tolerate the abuse of Constitutional rights by those who would destroy all government, no matter who they may be. Government cannot be coerced by mob rule. "

" The Department of Justice is pressing its investigation into the violence which forced the call for Army detachments ".

" Order and civil tranquillity are the first requisites in the great task of economic reconstruction "

" to which our whole people now are devoting their heroic and noble energies. "

" This national effort must not be retarded in even the slightest degree by organized lawlessness. "

Bonus March
Edit this article

Bonus March, a march by veterans of World War I (1914-1918) on Washington, D.C., in 1932. In May 1932 Walter V. Waters and other veterans in Portland, Oregon, formed the Bonus Expeditionary Force (BEF), known as the Bonus Army. They demanded early payment of a bonus that had been promised to them in 1924, though it was not to become available until 1945. The veterans were suffering through the Great Depression and needed the bonus immediately.

The Bonus Army left Portland, added thousand of recruits along the route, and arrived in Washington at the end of May. About 17,000 veterans gathered at Anacostia Flats and demanded the United States Congress provide immediate payment of the bonus. In June the House of Representatives agreed to immediate payment, but the Senate defeated the legislation. Many veterans then left the capital.

About 2,000 veterans remained in Washington, D.C., however, and they rioted on July 28. President Herbert Hoover ordered federal troops under General Douglas MacArthur to end the riot. The Bonus Army was driven away by cavalry, tanks, and infantry armed with tear gas, and their camp was destroyed. The group left Washington after Congress appropriated $100,000 to send them home. In 1936 Congress passed legislation providing for cash payments of the veterans’ bonuses.

The Case Study of American History!

Using of the "MOB" theology to maintain a "harmonious society".

As it is, the basic human programming consist of a need to become unique or else being important. This basic programming creates the varied humanoid behavioural patterns.

Ancient people have studied "human nature" in detail and one of the methods "cropped up" in the "philosophy test grounds" has been "Mob control methods"! The Ancient Greeks philosophy which has been improved by the Ancient Roman...created the system called "De Mob is Crazy", it must be pacified.

The system is quite different from Chinese systems.

To the Americans, they have seen the benefit of the "Economy of Scale" and thus ability to make "Mobs" work for the benefit of mankind. They have stars, their parable - ancient Greek/Roman Gods...ie. example the Vulcan Gods in the Republican party....use of Military + Propaganda is the basis of Western systems...they find particular use for Jewish half breeds who are good in "creating" liquidity...with long long history, well recorded.....still it is only 3 fingers in the whole system....

ha ha ha ha ha ha

No lar, Mr. Thomas Jackstraw, Judge and Jury is only trying to divert attention to control the forum....gosh...the White boys sure have high testorone levels....trying to take control of a foreign.....Chinese Chat forum..which are read by Chinese Journalist...

tsk, tsk, what a waste of effort, the MAIN BODY of Chinese journalism is not in China Daily but in the MANDARIN or Vernacular press.....


Anyway, i think China has been very patient with the schoolboy tactics...Go oN, make our day, tell us more of American History!

Cheerios!

Subject as above

To most Americans the situation of the Bonus Marchers is considered ancient and irrelevant history.

Relatively few Bonus Marchers were injured in the suppression of the Bonus March and later marches on Washington DC (I can only think of one (in the 1960s involving Dr. Martin Luther King)) were completely non violent and were suppressed non violently if at all.
