Posted on 09/08/2013 2:28:14 PM PDT by JohnKinAK
Washington DC has DENIED our permit for a no-stop ride through Washington DC. We find this regretful for the residents and businesses of that great city, and humbly offer our apologies. What could have been a one or two hour ride through will now likely be an all day event. We will be obeying all laws. We will be stopping at all stoplights, stop signs, and yielding to all pedestrians.
RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES OF WASHINGTON DC: On behalf of the National "2 Million Bikers to DC" Team, please accept our sincere apologies. We did the right thing and went through the proper channels to secure a no-stop permit to ride through your great city. We wanted to ride an established route, which would have taken us past the Viet Nam Memorial to the Lincoln Memorial, across the bridge into Virginia, and that's it! We would have been completely out of Washington DC, and your city would have been back to normal.
The National Team fully expected our permit to be rejected, and have already drafted a Plan-B. That Plan-B will be posted a little later today once the final details have been bolted down.
We know that California and Texas riders had kicks stands up yesterday. Many other western states have kickstand up today and throughout the weekend.
RIDERS: You are true, blue Patriots and we salute you for your participation in this event! Many of you have taken time off of work to be here. You have freely given of your time, your funds, and your bikes to ride shoulder to shoulder in this event. You have have left your families and your jobs to be here. Those of us who ride come from different clubs, chapters, and organizations. Some of us ride with family and friends and some ride alone. But on September 11th, we ride as one!! We ride to pay tribute and offer respect to those that lost their lives on that day 12 years ago, and to salute our troops engaged in the War on Terror. Riders!...we are the best of the best in America!! Our love for these people and this country is staggering, and we will make a display of Patriotism and solidarity America won't soon forget!!
Riders!...we lift you up to the Lord and pray that His hand and divine protection will ride with you all.
Rubber side down, brothers! See you Wednesday morning!!
1st amendment 2nd amendment no part of the constitution too sacred for a regime who must get their way
Sounds in your face to me. Why? You didn't mention the purpose of your ride in your post.
September 11th, we ride as one!!
Looks like a good sticker to me.
Don't get out much do ya.
I love how Eilana framed her (their) response to the crudbumps. A permit would have inconvenienced no one but the denial serves to inconvenience everyone.
Øbomatrons cutting off their noses to spite their faces.
That's correct...it was to be a 'Million Muslim March', but I believe they changed the name recently to something less 'inflammatory'...
This looks like it will be fun.
Muslims meet Bikers........(this isnt gonna be pretty)
What could have been a one or two hour ride through will now likely be an all day event. We will be obeying all laws. We will be stopping at all stoplights, stop signs, and yielding to all pedestrians.
Actually, this will probably be more effective, and it
is free assembly too.
And if this shit with Syria flies, it will be sooner rather than later.
The Bikers should go anyway and tell the “ authorities” to go to hell! Freedom trumps all!
“No-stop ride” = No permit necessary.
read again, they state why they are riding...
In other news, The WH announced that gasoline sales will be restricted to 4 wheel vehicles only from. 9-10 thru 9-11 in Washingon, DC and surrounding areas. The only exceptions will be for law enforcement vehices, commercial vehicles, or those driven by foreign nationals and Muslims. Order decreed by Emporer B. Obama this 8th day of September, 2013. Violators of this decree, particularly Christians, Tea Party members or other patriots opposing the federal tyrrany will be shot on sight.
Hope they have it on TV.
Imho, the permit denial was the 'in your face' part .. the determination to ride thru anyway seems more akin to a hearty FU to the fascist maggots in DC.
