Bikers roll out for DC 9/11 counter protest with a solid plan

*Update September 8: The group was ultimately unable to secure a “no-stop permit” for the ride, but they never needed a permit to ride in the first place. See the group’s update at the end of this post.  Also, the group is looking for about $1000 more in funding. See below for the link to donate.

The permit is secured, the funding in place, the final route is being mapped out and now it’s full-throttle to DC for thousands upon thousands of patriotic bikers riding to Washington on 9/11.

Organizers of the “2 Million Bikers to DC” have called on bikers from all over the country to ride to DC to “remember those who were killed on 9/11 and honor our armed forces who fought those who precipitated this attack,” and counter protest the “Million American March Against Fear” – formally called by the more inflammatory name, the “Million Muslim March.”

According to the group’s Facebook page, which now has over 42,000 “Likes,” DC officials have thanked the organizers for getting a permit for the 9/11 event – there are 12 other rallies in the city that day – although they were not required to do so as riding is a First-Amendment right.

Several states are in the process of organizing “overpass waves” as the bikers roll out and some groups are joining forces with the national “Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment” movement.

Though the event is financially “self-supported,” sponsors have jumped in to offer help and the group is raising funds selling merchandise for the ride through its official store.

“Any funds left over will go to an individual directly affected by 9/11 or an organization that supports victims of 9/11,” the administrative team wrote on Facebook. “It may not be much, but we hope they know how the hearts of all (past or present) team members have worked to honor them.”

With everyone on the gas next Wednesday, the thunder will be unmistakable as these American patriots ride past the Capitol and the national memorials.

“We ask that on this day of remembrance that all Americans pray for our country and for those who were lost on September 11, 2001, and give thanks to all of our service members and First Responders,” the press release stated.

*Update via a September 6 Facebook posting:

“September 6: 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. Those of us who ride come from different clubs, chapters, and organizations. Some of us ride with family and friends and some ride alone. But on September 11th, we ride as one!! 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!!

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!!”

    this does my heart good to hear this. while i am not able to make this rally i had attended numerous rallies in DC to counter-protest the commie lefties during the bush years. i despise the lefties and all of their adjacent groups.

    I AM SO VERY PROUD OF ALL YOUR DOING ,MY HEART AND SOUL ARE WITH YOU

    Sure maybe that is my problem. amazing, someone standing up for us bikers and not afraid of Muslems and we get our teeth bashed in. Not afraid to sit back and watch them make fools of themselves and then we get arrested. Let them fallllllllll. We don’t have to show our asses. That’s right, give them the right and then just ignore them. They want the attention and from this they are going to get it. I can not be swayed on my Christian belief. I love God and his Commandment’s. I am not going to be blindsided and instead having a hot, I choose to protect my family and friends by not swaying to the Muslem’s. If that is wrong for you, I am sorry. People ride the fence all the time, I am one who doesn’t. I don’t speak for people to like me. Sometimes the truth hurts. Oh well, move on. Gotta ride. Our Nation needs us to be calm right now, we can not ask our military to take another tour to protect us again. The families who serve are tired and worn down. Most are on there 4th and 5th tour, we have got to start protecting us. How many are under the bushes sleeping and starving for food and attention. They are dying daily. Let the Muslems kill themselves we don’t have to do that for them. All I am asking for, is for you to stand strong. Smile at them and know they can not conquer you. Is that wrong. Do not be afraid. Also for the others to tell me to read this or that, I have read, I also have been taught and fear does terrible things to people and it makes them do terrible things. People can make fun of my disease, I really don’t care. I served this Nation proud in all 5 of my deployments and would go again if asked. If you think it is funny I feel sorry for you. Ask anyone who has this from war, then laugh at them. Might as well just spit in there face.
