Posted on 03/04/2011 1:06:09 PM PST by trooprally
I arrived around noon, but patriots in support of the United States Constitution have been gathering since 10AM. Around 9:30AM, 630 WMAL, a local conservative radio station reported that the Sharia Law supporters had canceled their rally. Security concerns were mentioned in addition to insufficient SL supporters. But we stayed to continue our rally.
If you want to hear to radical Anjem Choudary spew his reason for the cancellation, click HERE. Be aware that you go to his web site.
Reports I heard from before I arrived were that a handful of Sharia Law supporters arrived, saw our gathering of supporters and left the area.
On the threads about todays event, several posters questioned whether the radical Sharia Law supporters were going to be there since they had not yet obtained a permit for Lafayette Park. Remembering that Glenn Beck did not receive his permit until a week before his huge event, a smaller event as this could easily be issued quickly.
And even without a permit, they could have gathered as a small group. The slime media would report the small crowd as a revolution, giving them hours of air time. I have watched the news on various stations and nothing. But that is expected. No of our group said anything to the slimes that could be used to ridicule us. Facts and well thought out opinions are not what the slimes are looking for.
I think for the first time the patriots had the reporters all to ourselves. The biased media had no one else to interview and we accommodated them. Several patriots made impromptu speeches within the confines of Lafayette Park where the Sharia Law supporters were supposed to be.
The patriots came from near and far, a biker prayer group from NC, FReeper Bevperl from Chicago, a couple from New York, and the Koran burner Terry Jones and his group. NOTE: Tthe words Stand Up America is being associated with Jones but he is in no way associated with of MG Paul E. Vallely, US Army (Ret), Stand Up America organization established in 2005.
A brief narrative and good read by WO4Man is HERE and his favorite picture is HERE. Note that at no time did our group place a hand on the Muslim. More on this below.
WO4Mans photo file HERE.
And then we had pictures. Pictures are by WO4Man (BLUE outlined pics) and [Mrs] Trooprally.
BELOW LEFT: Early gathering of patriots. BELOW RIGHT: And we keep gathering!
BELOW LEFT: WO4Man, RongKirby and lady from Virginia. BELOW RIGHT: Bevperl
BELOW LEFT: Captain America with supporters coming down Pennsylvania Avenue BELOW RIGHT: Showing our colors in front of White House
BELOW LEFT: Folding of flag since Park Police does not allow anything, even the U.S. flag to rest on Park property. The flag was leaning against a tree. BELOW RIGHT: Captain America talking to reporters.
BELOW LEFT: Some signs BELOW RIGHT: And more signs. RongKirby with flag and Cindy_True_Supporter to his left, listening to one of our speakers. There were about 5 speakers, one wearing a NYC fire department helmit.
BELOW LEFT: Me with my dual flag. Curiously, a well dressed man stood next to me watching our rally in apparent approval. He had an un-lit cigar and I asked if he needed a light. NO he said. He had to get back to work. I asked if he worked close by, and he said very close. As he turned to walked away he said, Help is on its way. Interesting. BELOW RIGHT: Another Israeli supporter. We had several Jews thank us for being there. One couple was visiting from Israel.
The next couple of pictures of our actions got mixed review from our group. Several patriots were concerned that our actions will make the anti-Sharia Law movement look bad and will garner reprisals.
But the way I look at it, if a Christian or Jew publicly prayed in Iran, they would at best be put in jail, at worst they would be murdered. The below Muslim is using the freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution against us. According to the Supreme Court, even the Westboro "Baptist" Church anti-military a$$hats have freedom of speech.
I have to add, at no time did we threaten the Muslim. At no time was a hand physically placed on the Muslim. At worst we annoyed him.
If todays events were a dry run by radical Anjem Choudary to see how much blow back there would be from Americans, we definitely showed our resolve in a firm, non-threatening but determined way.
BELOW LEFT: Muslim praying while several evangelical Christians pray over him. BELOW RIGHT: Me standing on the east side of the Muslim, in the crowd on the pics right. Basically the Muslim was praying to the Israeli and U.S. flags.
BELOW LEFT: Some of the evangelical Christians placed crosses in front of the Muslim. This was the only time the Muslim seemed annoyed. BELOW RIGHT: While the Muslim was praying, the NC biker prayer group unfolded Captain Americas flag and stood between the Muslim and the While House.
Short video of the Muslim starting his prayers. You can hear us loudly chanting USA - USA and singing a patriotic song. As mentioned by WO4Man in his narrative, our group also said the Our Father and Hail Mary, and sang more patriotic songs. WO4Man is standing behind Muslim with sign.
As Cindy_True_Supporters signs said - SHARIA LAW IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH U.S. CONSTITUTION
Good for you, thanks.

Yes, indeed interesting.
On Thursday, the radical Muslim and veteran provocateur Anjem Choudary plans to hold a demonstration in front of the White House calling for an extreme form of sharia to reign in America.
Whether the protest actually goes forward — there’s a real chance it won’t, if Choudary’s past stunts are any guide — doesn’t really matter. Choudary, who is known for applauding terrorism and calling for stonings of gay people and the overthrow of democratic governments, has already logged several appearances on Fox and CNN, generated a bunch of articles in the right-wing press, and even prompted a member of Congress to demand that he be banned from the country. All that in the last month.
Choudary is a London-based preacher who has over the past decade become the face of radical Islam in the British press — especially in the tabloids, and even more especially the right-wing papers owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. — despite having no religious credentials and virtually no public support. In fact, according to those who have tracked his career in Britain, Choudary is wholly a press creation.
“I asked if he worked close by, and he said very close. As he turned to walked away he said, Help is on its way. Interesting.”
That... is very weird.
I am not in favor of Sharia. I oppose Islam and its spread. I do not, however, like what I saw in the videos of this event.
One man does not constitute a rally, and the means by which the people present addressed the issue was tasteless and a horrible representation of both Christianity and the U.S.
Some are claiming it was a set-up, that the whole “rally 4 sharia” thing was to get people riled up so that they would go and do exactly what they did, creating yet more material to spread via the internet that discredits and damages both conservatives and Christians. I think that’s a little silly, as far as conspiracy theories go, but it’s not far from what ended up happening.
Sorry, flame me all you want. I’m not defending Islam. I’ve been very vocal about my opposition. But I certainly think the behavior exhibited here was beneath our “camp,” and will only galvanize our enemy. It would have been MUCH better to stay the hell away from the guy, but within eyesight and earshot, instead of swarming him.
Seems like the conservative protests reported here of late have been petulant in nature.
I just hate when I see good people played by a fraud.
This Chadury character is a nobody, has no followers, and says stupid stuff to get on TV. Its a great gig if you can get it, grow a long beard, talk about stoning homosexuals, call for outrageous protests and boom you are getting paid to be on TV
Good work! Thank you.
Thank God for the Patriot Rally.

I’m glad to hear you say that. Seems like a put-on to me. Sharia?
Thank you TR and all of you who showed. You’ve been a faithful group, taking time at least two times a week to honor our soldiers and to stand for the things that are important to Americans. Thanks for going out there and reminding everyone who saw you that we mean business - sharia is not welcomed and never will be.
I asked if he worked close by, and he said very close. As he turned to walked away he said, Help is on its way. Interesting.
That... is very weird.
TR, did anyone else show after that? Do you know what he may have been referring to?
