There Are No “2 Million Bikers” And “One Million Muslims” In D.C.
Jeez, I can't believe I have to write another one of these. When are you people going to quit passing around Facebook without checking your facts? I guess these stories had some basis in fact, which I'll detail next, but, realllllllllllllllllllllly!
So there was this group of American Muslim conspiracy theorists. They wanted to stage a gathering of "one million Muslims" in D.C. for the government to "tell the truth" about 911. They believe that 911 was all a plot by the U.S. government and blah, blah, blah...we know who was responsible and that assbag is rotting at the bottom of the sea with a hole in his head.
Not happy with the idea, someone proposed the idea of a "2 Million Biker" ride. This went as far as someone asking for a permit that would allow them to run red lights and have a police escort and so on (interestingly enough, though it was called a "2 Million Biker" ride, they only asked permission for 2000 bikes). The National Park Service decided that this would be just too disruptive to traffic. So, basically the bikers were told they were welcome (like anybody else) but they have to obey traffic rules.
Now people are posting pictures on their Facebook pages (most of them fake/false or misleading) that say that the bikers are being hassled (puh-leeze, this is not a 1970's biker movie).
At the end of the day, I'll bet maybe 500 or less show up for this event, and they probably won't even be noticed among those others who are commemorating 911. Now, quit putting stupid sh!t on the internet.
Here's the Snopes report on the whole thing.
