By Michael Volpe:
A counter-protest group of bikers is coming from all over the USA to honor the victims of 9/11, as well as our armed forces, who went on to defend America after that attack. The group will rally in Washington, DC on September 11, 2013 to counter-protest another rally held by the American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC).
“2 Million Bikers to DC,” as its now called on Facebook, has become a near overnight sensation. There are now state chapters in each of the fifty states and over 35,000 likes on Facebook
The group is the brainchild of Belinda Bee, a biker from the D.C.-area. She said a fellow rider named “Top Fuel” Bill Williamson had started a local biker group counter-protesting AMPAC, and that she took it over once the movement went national.
While the group didn’t respond to FrontPage Magazine in time for publication, Bee did make her first public comments to Blog Talk Radio host Barry Secrest on Wednesday August 28, 2013.
Bee told Secrest that AMPAC is not a moderate group but rather one which supports terrorists.
“They are not moderate Muslims, they are, we consider ‘the Brotherhood’ [Muslim Brotherhood].”
The leader of AMPAC, Radi Alum, said in an interview with FrontPage Magazine that his group and their 9/11 rally have both become lightning rods unnecessarily because of a series of misstatements about them in the media.
“If they understood what we are doing, they would join us. Unfortunately, some media outlets have lied by saying there is a ‘Million Muslim March.’ There is no such march. That idea has been dead since last February. We are the Million American March Against Fear, and most of our coalition is non-Muslim. The media outlets that spread the lie will be held morally and legally responsible for any damages that may occur as a result of their lies. We are consulting with lawyers and will be putting certain media outlets on notice in the near future.”
2 Million Bikers to DC has also complained about media coverage it has received. The group has complained repeatedly on its Facebook page about a series of misrepresentations of them in the media. One especially scurrilous attack came last week from the far-left website, Veterans Today Network (VTN). VTN suggested that Bill Williamson was a part of a group called Bikers for 9/11 Truth. This turned out to be a scurrilous report with no basis in fact (the group Bikers for 9/11 Truth doesn’t exist), with Williamson even being forced to issue a press release denying the report.
