Sarah Palin was right again; siding with bikers is not a bad thing. They are patriotic Americans - at least this lot clearly are.
The Two Million Bikers rally rolls into Washington today, on September 11th, as an offset to the Million Muslim March. The latter March, designed to bring a focus to the plight of Muslims, at a time not best conceived as a date for such a rally.
A Sept. 11 march on the United States capital aimed at drawing attention to Americans' alleged discrimination against Muslims has drawn the ire of patriotic followers of Muslim Prophet Muhammad who see it as a slight against America."These guys are basically exploiting an annual commemoration of an attack in which America lost over 3,000 lives to radical Islam," Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, author of A Battle for the Soul of Islam: An American Muslim Patriot's Fight to Save His Faith and president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy(AIFD), told The Christian Post in a Tuesday interview. "It's part of this lobby of Islamist groups in America that believe America is to blame rather than taking ownership."
The counterpoint from bikers, via NBC Washington:
Thousands of bikers with the group "Two Million Bikers to D.C." are snarling traffic on the Beltway with a ride honoring the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and the members of the military called to serve after the attacks.On their Facebook page, in all caps, the group said they will stand by the Constitution and Bill of Rights, adding that they're "against any fundamental transformation of America."
