911 Freedom Rally Draws 40,000

Chances are you didn't hear about the 911 Freedom Rally that was held at Ground Zero on Saturday, since NO ONE in the lamestream press is covering this thing. 40,000 people, and they're invisible to the media. This was a rally of remembrance, designed for people who wanted to stand in solidarity with the 911 families and "declare our iron determination that no victory mosque will be built on their graves." The event was reported by Pamela Geller, blogger at Atlas Shrugs.

Speakers at the event included Geller, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, Andrew Breitbart, and Geert Wilders, right-wing Liberterian Member of the Dutch Parliament and keynote speaker. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was scheduled to speak at the rally, but evidently ran away from this issue like a frightened little girl changed his mind.

Wilders is the Dutch politician who is under constant threat of death for his anti-Muslim views, stemming from his short internet film Fitna, which, among other things, denounced the Koran as a fascist book that inspires terrorism. The film includes media clips and newspaper cuttings showing or describing acts of violence and/or hatred by Muslims. Wilders himself described the film as "a call to shake off the creeping tyranny of Islamization." Fitna was released in March of 2008. The text of Geert Wilder's in New York speech is here.

The rally was hosted by the Freedom Defense Initiative (FDI) and the human rights organization, Stop Islamization of America (SIOA). Pamela Geller, founder and executive director of SIOA, has come out with a statement condemning Barack Obama's blessing of the Ground Zero Mega-Mosque.

Pamela Geller appeared on Giraldo Rivera's show on Fox News on Saturday night, which she characterized as Geraldo's Hit Job. Typical of the lamestream media's strategies in trivializing views on the Right, Rivera dismissed the rally attendance as "1,500 people." Good grief, I don't think so. Look at the pictures.

People in this country had better wake up. Islamic law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases. Of course they want to bring sharia law to the U.S.

Oh, and P.S. Saturday, September 11, 2010 was designated for Muslims around the world as International Burn the American Flag Day. "We call upon Muslims around the world to rise up and defend Islam, the Muslims and the Quran. Let us call for the Shari’ah to be implemented wherever we are. WE CALL UPON ALL MUSLIMS IN EVERY COUNTRY JOIN IN THIS DEMONSTRATION IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES BURNING THE FLAGS OF AMERICA AND ITS ALLIES." Allies? Do we still have any? Thanks, Obama.

Update. In an article by Bernie Quigley at The Hill ("Unremembering 9/11"), Quigley says that Obama was at "the wrong place at the wrong time" and that his "unremembering" and desire to "move on" from 9/11 will mar his presidency. Obama went to the Pentagon to give his 911 speech, sending his Vice President to speak in New York. I dunno. Is it just me, or does it seem like Our Man Barry "voted present" by going to the Pentagon instead of New York, taking the easy duty on Saturday? And of course, he had to instruct us in his speech that "as Americans we are not--and never will be--at war with Islam." Great. OK, Barry, but putting semnantics aside, it sure as hell looks to me like somebody's at war with us.

After his speech at the Pentagon, the president then spent the latter part of the morning at Ron Brown Middle School in Northeast Washington, helping paint the school's multi-purpose room as part of the day of service. That's what he wants to make 911 into: a day of service, not a day of remembrance, to "flush 911 down the memory hole." It ain't gonna happen, Barry.

Will someone please tell this moroon that even if it's only a photo op, you don't paint in a white shirt and dress shoes. What a dumbass this guy is. Notice how there's nobody near this guy except the person with the camera.

On two blogs I read Lamecherry.blogspot, and, they were talking about a book being published in Germany by a German who states the dangers being caused in Germany by the infusion of Arabs. Evidently it causes quite a stir to even comment on Arabs after they have been in the country awhile.

I think all of the mosque business has woken people up. The preacher in Florida has shown how inflexible the iman is, and how little they care about the people.

The American people are very fair, but we are not pushovers. I think that is why so many politicians (democrat and republican) are worried. They know we are awake.

It's Barry bowing, as he does usually to heads-of-states of totalitarian regimes...but her, he's just bowing to the wall. Or maybe his own reflection in it! That would be congruent with a narcissist's way.

This mosque at Ground Zero issue may be a blessing in disguise--to help wake up people in this country to what is going on in Europe now and what will be our certain future if we don't start drawing the line somewhere.

I have 3 good books on the subject that I would recommend. I'm sure there are others:

The Last Days of Europe: Epitaph for an Old Continent, by Walter Laqueur.

Londonistan, by Melanie Phillips. This one is chilling--a must-read.

Menace in Europe: Why the Continent's Crisis is America's Too, by Claire Berlinski.

American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us, by Steven Emerson.

I know the leftist PC crowd says, "Oh can't we all just get along--and America will go first." That attitude is naive and shortsighted. This PC crap that we've been living with for almost a generation is now causing us serious consequences--and we need to start pushing back against it, and I think we are. I hope we are awake--at least enough of us. There are some who will always want to hold hands and sing kumbaya. Then there are others who will continue to say, "Can't I just eat my waffle? (or go on my cruise). Those kinds of idiots deserve what they get, but unfortunately the rest of us would get it as well, so some of us are going to have to save the idiots from themselves. But I guess that's always been true.

Thanks for the mention of the blogs. I'll check them out.

And--heh--you're right--Barry bowing to the wall. I didn't think of that. Ha.

My comments on the two recommended blogs:

the Lamecherry blog is pretty lame--and gross. I didn't stick around on the site long enough to find the post about Germany. I don't "do" pink--regardless of the politics. It makes my head explode or something.

The Two Malcontents blog is one I can support--a blog that unequivocally supports our troops regardless of where they are deployed.

So that's batting .500. Not bad. Thanks for the h/t for the malcontents blog.
