So naturally, when Democrats got the White House in 2009, they put out the Veterans Need Not Bother to Apply signs.
From the Washington Times:
The Obama Justice Department discriminated against military veterans, trying to force them to withdraw their applications for two job postings — then canceling the postings altogether and rewriting the jobs to prevent the veterans from qualifying, a government watchdog said Wednesday.
Under federal law, veterans should have gotten preferential consideration for the two positions in the International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program.
But Justice officials had their eye on non-veterans, and scheduled meetings off-site to try to force the veteran candidates to withdraw their applications, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel said.
The veterans refused to withdraw and human resources told the ICITAP hiring officials that they had to hire the veterans.
Intent on avoiding that, the ICITAP then canceled the initial job-postings and re-listed the jobs a year later, in 2016, with new qualifications that excluded the veterans, the OSC’s investigative report said.Pretty sorry sight when the department that enforces civil rights ignores them.
The media is no better at hiring vets.
Which is why this story got so little space elsewhere.
On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"
Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.
