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
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.
