Million Muslim March Draws Overflow Crowd of Several Dozen

Actually, several dozen might be an overestimate. They’re slightly outnumbered by bikers and counter-protesters.

A few dozen demonstrators attending a rally on the Mall once billed as the Million Muslim March were vastly outnumbered Wednesday by a Christian group objecting to their event and a counterprotest consisting of motorcycle riders honoring Sept. 11 victims.

The noon rally, called the Million American March Against Fear took place between 13th and 14th streets in Northwest and was sponsored by the American Muslim Political Action Committee.

Speakers — among them author and Princeton University professor Cornel West — struck mainstream themes, calling for social justice for Muslims while promoting peace and condemning violence. Attendees also held a moment of silence to honor Sept. 11 victims.

Ruby Sous, from Kansas City, stressed that Muslims and American-Muslims “stand with America against terrorism.”

“We want to stand here in solidarity with the American people against hate and violence,” she said.

If you disagree with them, you’re accused of hate.
But other speakers addressed fringe topics, condemning what they called the use of U.S. tax dollars to kill innocent people in the Middle East and advancing conspiracy theories around the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
We don’t believe 9/11 truthers are much in solidarity with anyone. For more on the massive turnout of bikers, go here. Curiously they make no mention of the so-called Million Muslim March.
