No permit, but bikers plan D.C. ride to protest Muslim 9/11 march
Question of the Day
The website for the Muslim rally says Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, Missouri Democrat, was among about two dozen scheduled speakers. A spokeswoman for Mr. Cleaver on Tuesday said the lawmaker had met with the American Muslim Political Action Committee but that he was neither speaking at nor attending Wednesday’s event.
Isa Hodge, chief of operations for the political action committee, said his organization extended a formal invitation to Ms. Bee’s group, “with an explanation of what we’re actually doing, and what this march is trying to say.”
“We do want to stand up and say we condemn violence, we’re standing here against terrorists,” said MD Rabbi Alam, founder of the political action committee. “We are pro-American, we are Muslim, we are pro-peace, and we condemn any kind of violence.”
Asked if the bikers planned on joining with the Muslim march, Ms. Bee said “certainly not. We would never.”
