Yellowstone Senior Citizens Held in Hotel Under Armed Guard – Bus Not Allowed Bathroom Stops

A tour group of seniors inside Yellowstone Park, Wyoming were ‘sequestered’ inside a park hotel under armed guard for “many hours” then bussed out of the park on a 2-1/2 hour trip with no bathroom stops.

As the tour bus entered Yellowstone, it stopped to allow the group to off-board and take photos of bison. A Park Ranger ordered them back on the bus, saying they could not “recreate.”

The group of about 48 senior citizens went on to their historic hotel, The Old Faithful where they were promptly “locked inside with armed rangers outside the door.”

On the 2-1/2 hour ride out of the park, the tour guide had arranged for an in-park dude ranch to accommodate a bathroom stop but officials refused to allow it and notified the ranch owner that the facility’s license would be revoked if it allowed bus passengers inside.

Many of the foreign visitors were shocked and dismayed by what had happened and how they were treated, Vaillancourt [one of the tourists] said.

“A lot of people who were foreign said they wouldn’t come back (to America),” she said. Read More.

The visitors were in the U.S. from Japan, Australia, and Canada as well as the United States.

  • Thank you so much Maggie for posting this.. I had to open my windows because the steam was just to much.. from my ears.. I’ve never ever seen this type of thing being done in my 68 years of life in this country.. It’s deplorable that we treated these people from other countries this way.. They’re our house guests.. and we disrespected them terribly…
    Now if they were illegals.. we’d of fed them steaks and given them the best rooms.. and personally shown them the park.. cus they can vote and … well you get were I’m going on this..

    • David, first, my apologies for not giving you a tip of the Maggie Mae (google it) for the heads up. Don’t know how I did that, but I’ll fix it. Great point about illegals compared to our legal citizens and legal guests.

      We are in sad and devious times but America is beginning to come to grips with the state of our union, and I see a lot of steam out there.

      • Not a problem.. just wanted the story out there..
        Is there some way where I don’t have to type my name and website everytime I leave a comment.. major pain…lol I have a long website name.. lol

    in that case with no rest stop you whip it out and pee all over the ranger along with a few of their best friends, then do it again, they will not hit them, unless of course they wish to die because when we find out the beating will commence and not stop for a long time,

    Unbelievable how low this community organizer will go to get his way. Next he will stamp his feet. America got the asshole they deserved.

  • The Obama Regime has been planning this for a long time. They have forgotten that we also remember what is done to us and our anger doesn’t abate very easily.

    Will dear Valerie and ilk like our form of payback when it comes?

    In the debate for the US Senate in NJ:

    For his part, Booker has blasted Lonegan as a right wing extremist. At last week’s debate, Booker called Lonegan part of the “Tea Party fringe hijacking the government to get what they want.”

    Quite literally the progressive left is LITERALLY hijacking people to get what they want.
