Vets Group Pulls Elizabeth Warren Invite: We Don’t Want You At Rally

A leading Massachusetts veterans group is rescinding an invitation to Sen. Elizabeth Warren after members concluded she puts the needs of immigrants ahead of those of Americans who sacrificed for their country.

Veterans Assisting Veterans is holding a rally and fundraiser on August 26 and invited Warren and her Republican challenger, Geoff Diehl.

The group has now pulled Warren’s invitation.

“If you don’t want to respond, you don’t want to support, we asked you to come to our rally, our message to you is stay home, we don’t want you,” says John MacDonald, of the vets group, according to the Boston Herald.

“I think that really demonstrates where her heart is. To me, it’s really, really frustrating, and our group is really frustrated.”

Diehl will attend the event, according to MacDonald.

“It doesn’t seem like veterans or Massachusetts are a priority to her,” he tells the paper.

“All veterans should feel obligated to speak out when somebody who should be representing us, should be speaking out, has not.”

MacDonald has been critical of Warren’s priorities before.

“Elizabeth Warren and people like her seem to have a very hard time understanding the difference between legal and illegal. … It seems to be the fact that she’s more interested in creating political theater than she is in helping Americans,” MacDonald he told Fox News earlier this year.

“There’s hundreds of veterans dying every day. … Why don’t we address those problems first, and then we’ll worry about other people coming into our country,” added Dennis Moschella, the group’s president, during a joint appearance with MacDonald.

“There’s too much at stake, veterans have been promised benefits and they have been promised really a lot and the government doesn’t always come through on that,” MacDonald tells the paper.

“We need advocates, and we shouldn’t have to fight this hard.”
