2 Million Bikers to DC need funding
Facebook ^ | 9-10-13 | facebook page

Posted on 09/10/2013 4:04:03 PM PDT by Shannon

THE LEGAL FIGHT WITH THE PERMIT AND THE MAGNITUDE OF WHAT IS TURNING OUT TO BE AN INCREDIBLE RIDE, WE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO ASK YOU GOOD FOLKS TO HELP WITH THE FINANCES "IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT".


TOPICS: Activism/Chapters; Culture/Society; Front Page News; Government; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: 2millionbikers; 911anniversary; biker; bikers; dc; donations; muslim
I know requests for donations are frowned upon, if not outright disallowed, on FR. That said, a group of patriotic Americans is taking a stand. This is huge.

Per the article on The Right Scoop,"District of Columbia reportedly has granted the American Muslim Political Action Committee a permit for the Million Americans Against Fear rally, formerly known as the Million Muslim March..." Why the name change? What's up with that?

Moderator, if this notice about funds needed for this patriotic event is a total violation, delete it.

It’s too late for fundraising. 9/11 is tomorrow.

I think the donations are just to help fray costs.
The group makes it very clear not to donate if there is any issue, more interested in you arriving and joining.
This is going to be huge.

If it were too late they wouldn't be doing it. They had a fundraiser up yesterday. When they reached their goal, they took it down. Then this afternoon another plea went out. Obviously they need more money. $10, $25 here and there all adds up.

The Million American March Against Fear (the Muslim PAC) facebook page has 187 likes. The 2 Million Bikers to DC page has 108,000.

They can’t get a same day permit. It has to be done weeks in advance.

“It’s too late for fundraising. 9/11 is tomorrow.”

I would assume they need finances to get home also

You need a permit to ride a motorcycle into DC?

Exactly, I don’t think money is a problem at this point.

I would love to go to this biker rally, but I would have stay in Virginia because my concealed carry pistol goes everwhere with me when I ride. Since D.C and Md. deny my right to carry, I would not go there.

They wanted a "nonstop" permit so they could ride by a few memorials and then leave town. They were refused. Now it'll take all day because they'll have to stop at all traffic lights etc.

This article gives more info:

ps. I don't know why the link isn't highlighting.

I don’t think it is, either. I’m sure most of these guys can defray their own costs. And they don’t need a permit to ride, they just wanted to be escorted so they don’t have to stop at every light and stop sign. DC does it all the time to get a crowd like this in and out of the city.

Denying the permit was pretty short-sighted, because they turned a two-hour happening into an all-day event. I hope they get to cruise next to the mall because the Muslims will never be able to hear the speakers.

I don't use facebook either. I keep an account open which for something like this event is a good thing. But I never use it and nothing is posted on my page.

I don’t think they will get a permit at this point. They can cruise next to the mall. They just have to obey the traffic rules.

Correct about the traffic rules, and they’ve promised to do just that. I don’t know if they’ll ride by the mall. It could cause major trouble for the tourists, and I don’t think the bikers want to have that PR trouble.

But I can dream, right?

Oh, BTW, I believe they did apply for a permit in a timely fashion, but it was denied.

Correct which is why they shouldn’t need money at this point.

"They can cruise next to the mall. They just have to obey the traffic rules."

The only scary part is that all the "Trayvon Sainthood" parasites that inhabit DC may try to agitate (probably with Union and Black Panther-paid plants).

Correct. Which is why I agree, I don’t think they need anything but our eyes and ears. If someone’s passing a hat now, they can just keep it moving.

If they do try it (especially with Union / BP plants) there's a good chance there'll be cameras nearby. Find those first.

I would be concerned that any fundraising at this point would be using the tragedy of 9/11 to make a fast buck.

Give it a rest, pappy!
You don't want to contribute. Fine. Don't.

But quit badmouthing, by implication, those of us who do want to participate, the only way we can.

What exactly costs money that requires ‘someone’ to beg for money? Or is this coming from someone who saw an opportunity to make some cash? Show me the bills !

You’re right Pappy, sometimes skepticism can be good. On the other hand, sometimes it just makes the person look like a Debbie downer.

It's a great article.

Looks like FOX News will be covering it. I just read this on the 2MillBikers FB page: Belinda Bee of the 2 Million Bikers to DC movement will be on Fox & Friends in the morning at 6:15am...Early risers tune in!

I'm trying to save my home for my mother, father, and three kids. It's in foreclosure. That's what I tell the people on the street begging for cash.

That said, I support what you/they are doing with whatever I can short of cash.

“DC does it all the time to get a crowd like this in and out of the city.” Not quite.

As supportive as I am of this ride, I also understand as someone who has lived and worked in DC why the no-stop permit was denied. Beyond the Mall and monuments, DC is a city. Tomorrow is a work day. There’s atrocious traffic in DC every day of the week.

It’s a nightmare when the POTUS (any POTUS) goes out on the road. They block off every street he will travel on and all cross-streets. The blocking begins @ 15 minutes before POTUS will pass by. The entire presidential caravan passes in fewer than five minutes. Roads reopen.

Imagine how long traffic would be held up with a couple of thousand (forget 2 million) bikes. Ever been to Rolling Thunder? It goes on forever. Hours anyway. This would be the same thing, except on a workday, not a holiday. The inconvenience and disruption would offset any goodwill the ride would accomplish.

What should they do, write a letter to their congressman? D.C. disrupts our lives every day. Turnabout is fair play.

525 out of a couple hundred thousand who work in DC disrupt our lives every day. There’s only one non-voting delegate to Congress from DC itself. Most come from across the fruited plain. Stop sending them here... that’d be a good start.
