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

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 and Non Muslim 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.

And you know at least two-thirds of the crowd are NYPD officers.

Watching the live stream...it looks like there are about 10 muslims there, 12 Westboro Baptist Church fucks, and about 1000 bikers...and the number of bikers are increasing by the minute. Awesome.

Maybe they feared an extremist asshole would blow him/her self up and them too
Nope... they didn't show up because they were afraid of The Man, maaaaaan!

We also asked Dr. West and one of the event's organizers, Chris Phillips, why so few people (about a couple dozen) showed up for the "March Against Fear."

Phillips told us that he thought that "a lot of fear" of the federal government caused people to stay home.
Don't these jackasses ever get tired of making complete fools of themselves?

Most of the protesters look to be White people, college aged, suffering a nigh fatal disease called "White Liberal Guilt."

The real Muslims immediately realized how douchey it would be to have a pro-Muslim march on September 11 and stayed home or at work.
Good for them!
