Skip to comments.What two million???
Posted on 09/12/2013 8:17:41 AM PDT by null and void
I'm told there were 2 million patriots on motorcycles around Washington DC yesterday.
Unusually for me I watched several "news" programs in the hope of seeing any coverage of this event.
There was no, none, nada bit of coverage of any such event.
Therefore, it never happened.
Maybe all the reporters were taking a shower.
They were too busy trying to find the million muslim no-shows.
I expected the LSM to not report, but I DID expect at least, traffic cams like at Beck's rally that showed hours of flowing people.
Even D.C. does not exist for me.
On the plus side, I didn’t see that reported on either.
Yeah, pretty amazing that NEITHER event showed up in their coverage.
Not even on Fox?
There were a lot more cycles than Muslims, lolz
Some time after 7AM Central, FOX NEWS did a story that claimed “several thousand” bikers showed up “even though they were denied a permit”. They then commented that the two million rally that was given a permit “only had a few show up” while showing a picture of a speaker on a stage speaking to a crowd of 4(?) people.
Nope - they were covering the 25 Mussie sociopaths that showed up.
Yep. For the vast majority of TV viewers, even that fraction that watches the “real” news on ABCCNNMSNBCPBSFOX and Al Jazzera, this event simply never happened.
There’s a thread posted by a FReeper with photos who was there and he asked the same question...........
Ah! “Several thousand”? I was expecting claims of “Dozens”.
Oh well. Screw the media.
Even if those whose lives revolve around the television set didn’t see it, conservatives saw it. And it gave them a much-needed JOLT.
That will have much more fundamental impact than a little PR.
That’s because they couldn’t find them.
There was another FReeper who got excoriated for suggesting that they actually get off the Beltway and go into DC proper and grid-lock the whole place down during rush hour.
That might have gotten a 10 second mention on the left coast, between the school bake sale and the house fire...
Perhaps the bikers were prevented from entering downtown D.C. areas with high densities of traffic cams, due to the National Park Service not giving biker leadership permits to do so.
I'm not familiar with the details.
I didn’t see any tv coverage of either event.
I noticed some cameras quit functioning form time to time. There were cameras showing motorcycles all over DC mostly parked. The Blaze had one of the traffic cameras I was watching with lots of motorcycles but I must not have been watching at that time.
I would like to see a Million Motorcycles show up for an IMPEACH the MUSLIM rally.
More Harleys than hajis.
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I don't add you to the list...
Yeah, the coverage that I saw of this looked like a sparsely attended grade school function. Small PA, makeshift stage, and a few dozen people milling around.
Not much, for a "National Day of Protest", or whatever.
And, FWIW, they didn't hit 2 million bikers, either, but there sure looked like a lot of them in the pics and vids I saw. 10's of thousands, anyway.
More local coverage than national. I looked literally hundreds of photos from different news outlets to try and get a feel for the numbers ready to roll.
It may not have been a million, but it was certainly tens of thousands.
Infinitely better showing from patriotic American bikers than the million muzzie 911 sacrilege.
The best I can find out is an estimate of 880,000 to 1.2 million bikes were in the DC area. The “Million Muslim” deal drew a overwhelming throng of about 25.
Not much on any MSM outlet
Videos of Fox News Coverage on bikers:
“Two Million Bikers” Event Descends On DC To Honor 911 Victims - America Live
2 Million Bikers Hold 9/11 Rally in DC - Bob Beckel - Greg Gutfeld - ‘The Five’ - 9/11/13
9/11 Bikers Denied Permit for D.C. Ride - Belinda Bee - Fox & Friends - 9/11/13
Thats because they couldnt see them.
We know they only see what they want to see.
They are blind to what really happens.
Get your news from life not papers and airwaves.
Disappeared like the Tea Party rally in DC in ‘09.
Since there are only 2.6 million muslims in the US, did they really think 30% are going to show up for a rally?
They were willing to cover if before the ride, so they could crow about how few showed up later.
When a million or so actually did show up, it became a non-story.
Fox reported it as “thousands”, other outlets didn’t report it at all.
Bret Baer had it as his 3rd item last night on Fox News Special Report
Even FReepers pay more attention to soap opera shows like Breaking Bad than this event.
You can bet the politicos in DC knew about it. Not televising it won’t make Patriots go away, it will just keep the uninformed - uninformed.
They now know we are waking up; that the “red line” draws close...
I have yet to see a photo of the Muslim March showing a Mid East Muslim transplant; I saw a bunch of Haters.
The problem is that some people say 800,000 and some say 2,000,000. If someone would have some accuracy perhaps they could write a story. Facts are important and when nobody has accurate facts it makes it impossible to write a story at least in liberal land.
Oh really? Nowhere in this Fox News Alert that takes place during the ride does Martha McCallum use "thousands". She uses words like "big", "folks cheering them on all along the side of the road" and "impressive turnout".
Let's give credit when credit is due.
Hmmm, not one single reporter got up in a helicopter with her cameraman....unusual.....
