In response to the planned “Million Muslim March” in Washington, D.C., on 9/11, bikers announced their own rival 2 Million Biker Ride. This weekend, news surfaced on blogs and Twitter that D.C. had denied the bikers an event permit.
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.
Participants are moving forward.
They should move ahead and come anyway. Here's more about the Muslim "protesters" who are sullying this sacred day (FrontPage Magazine).
The American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC) leads the “Million American March Against Fear on 9/11.” Its website claims that “’Al-Qaeda is a joke. And so is the whole ‘war on terror’” and “the so-called ‘Islamic terrorist threat’ is pure hallucination.” Formerly known as the “Million Muslim March,” the event’s name was rebranded after 9/11 Truth groups joined it.
AMPAC is based in Missouri and is led by MD Rabbi Alam, who has suggested that Jews were responsible for 9/11. He also leads the Missouri Democratic Party Asian American Caucus and received significant attention when the Missouri Right to Life PAC endorsed his bid to become Secretary of State.
On August 22, the Clarion Project published an expose of how Alam and the leadership of his Missouri Democratic Party Asian American Caucus are linked to the pro-Hamas Viva Palestina group. Viva Palestina is led by anti-American politician George Galloway and is facing a second investigation by the British government for failing to disclose its finances.
“[T]he Viva Palestina campaign is more about supporting and legitimizing Hamas than it is about providing aid to the needy…They treat Hamas leaders as the legitimate representatives of the Palestinian people and provide both material and political support to the terrorist organization,” writes the Investigative Project on Terrorism.The idea of giving people like this a permit to protest on 9/11 where some of their jihadi brothers killed Americans nearby at the Pentagon is an obscenity and a slap in the face by whomever is in charge in DC. That is like allowing the Japanese Navy to parade through Pearl Harbor on December 7, or allowing Neo-Nazis to protest on a Holocaust remembrance.
This is one even we will be following closely.
