Avalanche of Patriotic Bikers Rally In DC To Honor 9/11 And Protest ‘Million Muslim March’… Last Count a Hundred…

JoshuaPundit: On Wednesday, September 11, 2013 in Washington DC, thousands of patriotic bikers poured into the capitol in a rally to honor 9/11 and protest a ‘Million Muslim March’ heavily touted by Muslim Brotherhood front groups like CAIR and ISNA. 

The 2 Million Bikers to DC ride didn’t draw two million participants, but it probably drew a couple of hundred thousand bikers in the capital and many more in locations around the country in a show of support. The ‘Million Muslim March’ ended up drawing at most a hundred or so participants, and by some counts as little as 25 or 30.

Bikers went out in groups of fifty from the starting point, the Harly-Davidson store in Maryland’s Prince George’s County. in a line that stretched for close to half a mile and kept growing.

Because the bikers were denied a permit by federal and local authorities that would have offered the riders a police escort through traffic, the actual ride was a lot more complicated than it should have been.

This was a sore spot with organizers who thought the denial was politically motivated, especially since the Muslim event received a permit easily. The American Muslim Political Action Committee (MPAC, a Muslim Brotherhood front group, scheduled a rally for 9/11 to draw attention to what they call ‘unfair fear of Muslims’ after the Sept.11 terrorist attacks. Of course, they picked 9/11 to do so, something I’m sure a lot of people saw as insensitive and even aggressive.

Here are some reactions, as quoted in the Washington Times:

Waiting for the call to put up his kickstand, 68-year-old Jim Hearley said he rode his bike about 650 miles from Ellijay, Ga., to show his support.

“I had to do it. It was the patriot thing to do,” the former Marine and Vietnam veteran said, adding that the Muslim rally was what originally drew him to the ride.

“Any other day it probably wouldn’t have been as big as it is, but it pissed off a lot of veterans and a lot of Americans.”

“They picked the wrong day to do it,” said Kelly Volb, a 42-year-old Pennsylvania woman who attended the ride. “This is to remember everyone who perished on 9/11, out of respect to them.”

While he waited for the ride to begin, Danny Johnson shook hands with fellow riders and recounted memories of being in New York City 12 years ago. The self-described bishop with the Heat of Fire City Church in Louisville, Ky., gave last rites to victims at the Brooks Brothers store on Liberty Street across from ground zero. He said he has spent every Sept. 11 since in Manhattan — until this year.

“I think America has spent 12 years at a funeral,” the 52-year-old said. “We’ve got to revive our country and do something different than we’re doing. It’s time it had a resurrection.”

The Million Muslim March was pretty much lost in the sea of motorcycles and all they accomplished was to make the rest of America mad and inspired the bikers to roll… even without a permit!!

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
