The same idiot politicians who thought creating Gun Free Zones would make our schools safe assumed they could stop a few million patriotic bikers from driving non-stop through Washington, D.C. by denying them a permit. As usual, the idea BACKFIRED. The bikers, from some far-away states are already on the road, heading to D.C. to drown out the noise from the Muslim headbangers determined to soil our commemoration of the MUSLIM ATTACK ON AMERICA, Sept. 11, 2001.
WASHINGTON TIMES – The nation’s capital has denied a “no stop” permit for the “2 Million Bikers to DC” rally on Wednesday, meant to “remember those who were killed on 9/11 and honor our armed forces.” The group said in a statement Sunday that D.C. officials denied their request for a special nonstop ride through town with a waiver for red lights, stop signs and other traffic signals. “What could have been a one or two hour ride through will now likely be an all day event,” the group said.
Denial of the permit sparked outrage on the biker group’s website because the 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, for Wednesday on the National Mall, the PAC announced Saturday. …
The 2 Million Bikers to DC group offered an apology to D.C. residents, who will undoubtedly be disturbed by the noise. “We did the right thing and went through the proper channels to secure a no-stop permit to ride through your great city,” the groups said Sunday. “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 bikers plan to meet at the Harley Davidson in Fort Washington, Md., on Wednesday morning, where they will have opening ceremonies, blessings, the Pledge of Allegiance and a handful of speakers. The final route has not yet been announced “for security purposes,” the group said.
“[O]n September 11th, we ride as one!!” the group said. “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!!”
At the time of this report, the Million American March Against Fear (MAMAF) had garnered 141 “likes” on Facebook, and the 2 Million Bikers to DC had gained 56,284.
Nelson Abdullah Conscience of a Conservative The real patriots in America are the one’s willing to put down their personal business to join in a mutual effort to pay honor and tribute to our fallen heroes. To defend our rights to liberty and freedom and to confront those who choose to demean those heroes. Today those patriots are the millions of bikers in America who express their pride in their country and in their individualism every day they ride.
Today they are on their way to Washington, D.C. to set the record straight. The numbers are not yet in but it may well be that 2-million bikers from across America are about to converge on our nation’s capitol on the 12th anniversary of the Islamic terrorist attack to confront a Muslim group who planned to organize a march to celebrate the day other Muslims hijacked four airliners and killed thousands of Americans. The sound of millions of bikers roaring through Washington on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 will be a sound to remember.
Riders across the country are tweeting that their kickstands are up and their motors are revving. Others from more distant states are advising their riders are already on the way.

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.
FINAL DETAILS FROM THE NATIONAL “2 MILLION BIKERS TO DC” TEAM:
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.

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!!
The ultra-liberal news media will likely ignore this visit to Washington, D.C. as they often do with other patriotic demonstrations. So one enterprising rider suggested that the loudest bikes spend some time riding around the television stations and drowning out their news programs. Sounds to me like a great idea, pun intended.
God speed, riders. Have a safe and satisfying trip. But don’t be too disappointed if you don’t encounter many Muslims when you get there. When news of your plans came out most of them probably cancelled theirs. And every one of us who ride with you in spirit but who do it at home in their armchairs are with you. God Bless these patriots.
Loud competition. Very loud. And lots of it! You get 2 million American biker patriots revving their engines when Muslims start lifting their asses to Allah on the front lawn of the U.S. Capitol building on 9/11.
Bryan Short: “How appropriate. A million muslims surrounded by 2 million hogs!”
WND (h/t Susan K) Muslims who have begun promoting a 9/11 march in Washington that originally was to protest “anti-Islamic bigotry in the U.S.” and then turned into a “March Against Fear” may have some competition. In what was a virtual impossibility before the Internet, a Facebook page has been created in which many individuals are coordinating what they have dubbed “2 Million Bikers to DC.”
At the Mr. Conservative blog, the author said: “The best way to counter bad speech is to oppose it with good speech. Sometimes ‘speech’ can be expressed simply by the number of people who are willing to show up to support a principle. That’s the view that hundreds of bikers (so far) across American have as they prepare to join a ’2 Million Biker Ride to DC’ to counter the planned Sept. 11 ‘Million Muslim March.’”
On the Facebook page, the community purpose is described as: “To honor those who were killed on 911 and our armed forces who fought those who precipitated this attack!” More than 16,000 “likes” had been generated in just a short time.
“We have now created the final phase for states to coordinate! All riders need to look at the state list, choose your state and request to be added! Several states still need coordinators,” is included in the instructions. Four dozen pages to coordinate delegations from individuals states already exist.
A Ronald Curaba said: “Who ever comments I would like to do this … should shut up and show up! Im a retired FDN Lt. I should be at my old firehouse where I was on that ill fated day …. but I will be in DC riding! God willing!”
Organizers of the page added: “Folks, just wanted to say thank you for your support. This event has been a lot of work. But for our country it is worth it. As with any event such as this we are being attacked from every angle. But we will not allow those distractions to deter us from our goal nor the goal of the originator of this event Mr. Bill Williamson.”
“God Bless Ride Safe,” added Tammy Bowman.
“Ride on brothers,” said Bob Halley.
“Don’t forget ya’ll don’t need a bike to participate. Support vehicles will be needed. I suppose most of the U.S. will be there in spirit. Those of us who are lucky to still have employment still need to work their knickers off to survive these days. Perhaps red/white/blue boys can adorn people’s homes in support?” suggested Trish Zysk.
Options for those who cannot make the trek to D.C.? “Organize a ride to your own state Capitol! Get with like-mined folks and get started planning! Someone take a lead in your state and get the event in motion.”
Also, get with your ‘Impeach Obama Overpass’ organization. “Whatever you decide please do something to support America on 911!”
While the American Muslim Political Action Committee originally billed its offering as the “Million Muslim March,” it now has been changed to the “Million American March Against Fear.” The promoters initially said their march was to protest “anti-Islamic bigotry in the years that ensued the al-Qaida terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people on American soil.”
Now the group says its goal is to “ask all individuals and organizations working for peace to attend this collective action to tell our government leaders we want transparency and policies of peace.
In the past 12 years since 9/11 the United States government as failed to protect and promote constitutional liberties and human life, here and abroad. We feel that accountability in government has been ignored and the time has arrived to collectively speak truth to power.”
An early statement from the group said, “On 9.11.01 our country was forever changed by the horrific events in New York. The entire country was victimized by the acts done on that day. Muslim and non Muslim alike were traumatized but we as Muslims continue 12 years later to be victimized by being made the villains. To this day every media outlet and anti Islamic organization has committed slanderous and libel statements against us as Muslims and our religion of Islam.”
