Now that Joe Biden is in charge, the Pentagon has suddenly rejected the permit for the annual “Rolling to Remember”motorcycle ride that has been held in Washington D.C. for 30 years.

The POW/MIA veterans group have been holding their motorcycle rally for decades, but now that Biden is in charge, the patriots have had their permit unceremoniously rejected for the first time.

The event is organized by the veterans group AMVETS. The permit requests have been submitted in the proper time period and some had given approval.

“AMVETS received approval from the Department of Transportation, the Department of Interior, and multiple other state and local authorities,” said a press release issued by the office of Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA).

The Pentagon initially granted the veterans group’s permit. But then, the permit was canceled without explanation.

Now the ride is in danger of being canceled. Per Breitbart News:

“There are no options with as much space and convenient routes to the memorials, meaning it will be more difficult, disruptive, and expensive than if the Pentagon parking lots were available,” said Joe Chenelly, the national executive director of AMVETS.

“The administration included AMVETS in this new group as ‘a trusted voice in communities across the United States,’ but the Pentagon wouldn’t have a conversation with us to share their concerns and give us the chance to address them before deciding to refuse our application,” Chenelly added.

In past years, the Rolling to Remember motorcycle ride, formerly known as Rolling Thunder, had used the Pentagon parking lot as the pre-ride staging area to line up for the processional ride from the Department of Defense to the war memorials on the National Mall.

“The biggest disappointment in the Pentagon’s denial was that AMVETS was ignored for months as its professional staff in Washington requested numerous times an opportunity to hear the Defense Department’s concerns and present a [coronavirus] safety plan,” said AMVETS national commander Jan Brown.

“The Biden Administration is making a terrible mistake by blocking a veteran’s charity from the use of the Pentagon parking lot for the Rolling to Remember POW/MIA remembrance motorcycle ride,” Rep. Issa said in a statement. “This last-minute rejection, a first of its kind in more than 30 years, leaves patriotic veterans without a safe alternative.”

Issa also noted that the Pentagon stonewalled the organizers and have refused to talk to them about why their permit was canceled.
