Bikers Descending on DC on 9/11 to Counter-Protest the Million Muslim March
Regardless of political view, most Americans view Sept. 11 as a day of mourning, of sadness for America. It is, for most, a sacred day.
This is why the American Muslim’s Political Action Committee‘s planned “Million Muslim March” in Washington, DC on Wednesday, September 11th is ill-conceived, distasteful and, quite frankly, antagonistically insulting to many Americans.
While Muslim Americans have the same First Amendment rights as any other American, AMPAC’s protest on September 11th is a slap in the face to many Americans–and, moreso, to those whose lives were lost on that sunny Tuesday twelve years ago.
This is also why an ad hoc group of bikers is organizing a counter-protest through Facebook to respond to AMPAC’s disdainful disrespect for what most Americans view as a day of mourning.
Just as the Million Muslim March most assuredly won’t get a million Muslims in Washington on Sept. 11th, there probably won’t be the hoped-for two million bikers riding in either.
However, it appears, based on the 22,000 and growing Facebook likes, the bikers’ ranks are growing rapidly.
