'2 Million Bikers' to roll into D.C. on 9/11 in protest of Million Muslim March
The Examiner ^ | 09/11/2013 | Linsey Bald

Posted on 09/11/2013 9:13:59 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

The “2 Million Bikers to D.C.” rally, which likely will be closer to two thousand, will bring a deputation of bikers into Washington today who plan to pay their respects to the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack. Originally denied a permit, D.C. police have now granted permission for the biker’s ride, reports UPI on Sept. 11.

Social media was abuzz with outrage that these patriotic riders were denied a permit. The 2 Million Bikers to D.C. requested permission to have a police escort, with no-stop authority granted at red lights and intersections.

Police have now said the ride is permissible, though the bikers will not have the benefit of an escort and are expected to follow all traffic controls.

The Washington National Park Service and D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department both refused to grant permits, saying the influx of bikers would be too disruptive to traffic on a work day, and that such permits are generally granted for weekend biker rallies.

The biker’s ride is a counter protest to the “Million Muslim March,” a protest group organized by the American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC). The group was granted a permit to hold their demonstration at the National Mall.

“AMPAC, a fringe group led by Rabbi Alam, a known 9/11 truther who has espoused anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about the New York attacks, said in a statement that the event was designed to reveal the ‘truth’ about 9/11 and highlight the ‘media propaganda’ that has made the word terrorist ‘synonymous with Muslim,’” reports the Huffington Post.

Initially announced earlier this year, the Million Muslim March sparked anger over the chosen date of September 11. Subsequently renamed the “Million American March Against Fear,” the protest has lost some traction.

I hope this is really big. If I were anywhere close and didn’t have a family to take care I’d be there in a heart beat. Probably wouldn’t be packing though...

Ever aware of his sorry place in History, POS Chief Executive Order Giver, B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, only last night in a major speech to America and the World, said the following:

“WHEN DICTATORS CREATE ATROCITIES, THEY DEPEND UPON THE WORLD TO LOOK THE OTHER WAY.”

BTW, B. Hussein, we are Americans, and we are looking to hold YOU accountable for YOUR Benghazi atrocity!

IMPEACH OBAMA !

REMEMBER BENGHAZI !

I don't know if it will be accurate, but I've seen predictions of 5,000 Muslims and 50,000 bikers. We'll see.

Really? The estimate is only for two thousand bikers to attend?

This shows how stupid the leadership in DC is.

They could have issued the Bikers a permit driven them around their route and had them out of town in a couple of hours. Now they will be roaming anywhere and everywhere for most of the day.

Just on a side note...is anyone else besides me rolling their eyes every time a group announces a march of a million people, regardless of their political affiliation? They never manage to get anywhere close to that number.

Obama and Holder are publicly speaking about their ‘plan of the week’ that are just more smokescreen distractions to divert attention away from the incompetent manner Obama has handled his day job.

The best indicator of a PHONY ADMINISTRATION is the number of its REAL SCANDALS.

Commie Tyrant Obama’s current talking points are thus smokescreen distractions for the products of Obama’s first 4 years in office:
* Refusal to close US Southern Border to Mexican illegal alien invaders
* No known un-forged records of Place of Birth
* No known un-forged records of University grades
* Benghazi Massacre
* Dereliction of Duty as CIC during Benghazi Massacre
* Cover up of Benghazi Massacre
* Destruction of Seal Team Six
* Cover up of Fast and Furious murder of US Border Agent by Exec. Order
* IRS-Obama’care” Commune Death Grip on Wealth and Health
* NSA-Gestapo Death Grip on all citizen’s communications
* Use of Courts against News Media
* Use of Supreme Court to install Un-Constitutional Obama’care’ Tax
* Destruction of the US Coal Industry
* Refusal to permit XL Pipeline construction
* Trillion Dollar a year Federal Overspending
* Monthly violations of the US Constitution by Obama
* Use of Exec. Orders to bypass Congress.

REPLACE sniveling coward Speaker Boehner with a FIGHTER!

It is time to IMPEACH Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro.

I'll bet there won't be more than a couple hundred Muslims. This is a fringe group and the other muslim organizations like CAIR and ISNA are distancing themselves as much as they can, not even mentioning it on their sites . Interestingly, though, a Pennsylvania Tea Party group has allied itself with the muslims and are supposed to show.

As I recall (haven’t been on a bike in a while) the idea is to NOT crash.

This is a bust. According to The Blaze, they’re not even venturing inside the beltway:


According to local outlet WTOP-RADIO, it appears the bikers may not be actually entering the capital as a massive group.

They reportedly will not go into D.C. as a large group.

“There are so many motorcycles that trying to go through Washington, D.C., would not have worked,” Eric Zern, a ride organizer from Hagerstown, MD, told the station.

Instead, the station says the group will travel one time on the Outer Loop of the Capital Beltway from Prince George’s County to Montgomery County and then into Virginia. They’ll then return to where they started, the Harley Davidson story in Fort Washington, MD.

However, individual riders can decide if they’d like to divert themselves into D.C.

Last week Chris Phillips, the organizer of the "Million Muslim March", refused to condemn hateful groups like the Muslim Brotherhood while arguing the U.S. government has been hateful toward Muslim-Americans since 9/11/2001.

Yes, they have.

Don’t venture on the bigger thread though. You’re a negative nellie if you tell the truth.

This will have even less effect than the huge Tea Party rally (on a Saturday). Obamacare starts next month.

This sort of bowing down and backing off only serves to embolden them.

This should have been like a French truckers strike. Drive in, shut ‘em down and wait the elites out.

That is mighty Christian of them, since, until DC has checkpoints at all entrances and exits, There is not any authority whatsoever to prevent the free flow of traffic into and out of DC!
Unless they declare a state of emergency. Allow all traffic or no traffic. Muslims included.

Neither DC police nor anyone else I am aware of has the authority to pick and choose who may or may not enter the National Capital.

A few years ago we floated a similar idea on FR: they can deny permits to groups that want to march but they CANNOT STOP TWO MILLION VISITORS WHO JUST HAPPEN TO “SHOW UP” to visit the Jefferson Memorial. If you remember our idea, it was to have a million people drive “Junkers” to DC and just abandon them, trapping ALL the legislators and staffers and media in tha hole with the people.
