Default Million Muslim March....Uh not quite.

Million Muslim March Shaping Up To Be More Like A Few Hundred People Walking Down The Street

Quote:
UPDATE:

Turns out it was more like 20 people. The "2 Million Bikers" event, on the other hand, had a much larger turnout than initially expected.

EARLIER:

An event initially billed as the "Million Muslim March" and set to be held in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, is set to fall far short of its attendance goal.

According to the Weekly Standard, a memo sent to tenants of a downtown D.C. office building in anticipation of the rally, since renamed the "Million Americans Against Fear," said to expect "somewhere in the hundreds, not thousands, of participants," according to police estimates. The participants are set to begin marching at noon.

The likely shortcoming could have been predicted. Organizers at the group American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC) didn't exactly do a lot to engender sympathy for an event held on one of the most emotionally charged days of the year. The group is led by M.D. Rabbi Alam, a professed 9/11 truther who has pushed controversial anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about the attacks. AMPAC's plans outraged conservative outlets earlier this year, though many cited the religion of the organizing group, rather than the fringe beliefs behind the event.

Organizers of the Million Americans Against Fear rally have defended the timing of their event by noting that "Muslim[s] and Non Muslim[s] alike were traumatized" on Sept. 11, 2001. AMPAC has insisted that the march will be about civil rights, indefinite detention and countering inaccurate depictions of Islam and Muslims. It also appears, however, that trutherism will still play a significant role; the DC Area 9/11 Truth Movement and Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth Movement are currently listed as partners.

The controversy has since sparked a counter-demonstration called "2 Million Bikers." A similarly ambitious title, the event is expected to bring upwards of 3,000 bikers into the nation's capital, where they'll motor through the city in protest of the event formerly known as the Million Muslim March. Over the weekend, the organizers of that event were denied a no-stop permit, which would have allowed them to ride through D.C. without having to obey traffic signals. The group will still be allowed to hold the event in D.C., it's now just more likely that the gridlock on the city's streets will be more frustrating than it normally is.

The Muslim side wanted this to be a controversial movement, they failed.

The "biker" side was being Patriotic in a time that needed a lot of it, they succeeded. If they do it next year I will be planning to ride out there to join them.

How about you? Our will you be too busy picking out what color bandana to tie to your forks?

I would say that it's not really fair to make the entire American Muslim population own the group who wanted to do this, it would be like saying that all American Christians were the same as the Westboro Baptist Church.

How bout before that, we get a group to ride on Dec. 7, to show support for December 7, 2013?

Wow, you're Cold.

3000+ people died at the hands of radical muslims. I do believe we should not ever forget what happened that day.
If this is your mindset I sure hope you keep your opinion to yourself in your class and do not reproduce.
Your true colors are showing.

I'm not saying we should forget about what happend, not sure where you got that.

I think you shouldn't say that you support 9/11. I think you should say that you support the people who endured 9/11.

Chill. Plus, yes, I know how you think and I have a feeling you're pigeon holing the entire American muslim culture with the acts of this one group.

I wouldn't worry about it. Its the same logic used when he talks about Gay marriage. Sooner or later he's going to insinuate that you'll marry your dog, even if it is never brought up. He's trolling.

Yes, it was at the hand of radical Muslims. But so many people seem to want to blame all Muslims. I tend to see the problem as being with the radical part, not the Muslim part. I am against all radical thinking.

Does that make me a radical moderate?

There you go lumping all radical thinking into one pile of hate again.


I happen to be thinking of the square root of a negative number- so I guess I guilty of radical imaginary thinking.

So non radical muslims want to separate themselves from radical muslims. Fine by me. Why the fukc would you pick the worst day in the 365 days a year to do it?

We should go over to Japan and have rallies to show how far Japan/US relations have come the two days a year where we dropped Hydrogen bombs on them. I'm sure they would love it.

It sounds like the non radical Muslims did separate themselves from the radical Muslims by not showing up for this.

Unless this date is important to our fallen soldiers, or your Bday

The entire American Muslim population is not on board with this protest but the few that want to engage with there need to complain about the mistreatment of themselves(muslims) is not needed to be done on the anniversary of a very tradgic day for the families of the servivors and American citizens.
If they want to protest there are 364 other days to do that.

Splitting hairs, you knew what I meant.

From a poll I heard of approx. 70% of the American Muslim population disagree with the extremists. It is the other 30% that live in this country I have my concerns about.
You would not find a % of the Christian population that would agree to violence or terrorist activities to make their point.
