"Millions" of Muslims are coming to DC on July 4th, not to celebrate America, but to celebrate Islam. The goal: "to unite the ummah."
One Million Muslims.org is the organizer and presenter of the upcoming One Million Muslim March. The planned event is not to be an actual march, but rather a gathering of Muslims from across the US, at the Anacostia Park in Washington DC, July 4, 2011. The One Million Muslim March will be a gathering of Muslims from across sectarian, ideological, racial, ethnic,language and all other barriers. We will come together to re-establish the feelings of brother and sisterhood among Muslim Americans, and to begin the difficult process of post 9/11 healing. Please visit this website often for news and updates regarding the march.
Accompanied by the Islamic supremacist false narrative:
Who we are One Million Muslims.org was founded by several Muslims who feel that it is time for Muslims to resolve ourselves to never again be left unprepared for the big challenges that face us and our families and children such as the backlash following 9/11. Nothing made it more clear to us that the Muslim community had almost no understanding of what role we would play in the broader international scheme to demonize Muslims and Islam, and to portray Muslims as enemies of the United States and the West, (supposedly because we hate freedoms), than the most recent spate of Islamaphobia that left several mosques destroyed and several Muslims subjected to violence. There was no adequate Muslim response. Only condemnation and appeals to the government, and law enforcement to protect us. There was no plan of action that was pro-active and aimed disseminating the truth in response to the lies, or using the US courts to silence the illegal defamation, misrepresentation and hate speech.
There was no backlash after 911.
No mosques have been destroyed.
The rare incidents of mosque foul play have been committed by Muslims.
But they do want to kill free speech by "using the US courts to silence the illegal defamation, misrepresentation and hate speech."
Most of the success of the ill conceived scheme to demonize Islam resulted from the rush to judgment that took place following 9/11, and the failed 9/11 investigation which wrongly concluded that Muslims had carried out criminal terrorist attacks on the US on September 11, 2001.
It wasn't criminal, it was an act of war, and it was Muslims who attacked in the name of Islam.
At the rally, we will also declare to the world that Muslims are innocent of the crimes committed on 9/11 and we demand a new independent investigation and an end to the illegal wars.
Why on the fourth of July?
Obama Organized Million Man Muslim March On DC
Democrat presidential front-runner Barack Obama not only marched with Nation of Islam Founder Louis Farrakhan in the first Million Man March on Washington, D.C., but he helped organize the 1995 event!
The “he marched” claim was reported in a 1995 Chicago Reader article and brought back to the attention of the blogosphere March 29 by Hugh Hewitt. The new revelation, however, was unearthed today by Gateway Pundit.
Buried 13 years deep inside the archives at Biography.com, the biography of Farrakhanincludes this statement:
In 1995, along with other prominent black leaders such as Al Sharpton and Barack Obama, Farrakhan helped lead the Million Man March on Washington. A second march, called the Millions More Movement, took place in 2005.
Obama Will Mark 50th Anniversary of MLK’s ‘I Have a Dream’ Speech on Steps of Lincoln Memorial
US President Barack Obama will mark the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech by speaking from the same steps at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington.
The August 28 event in the US capital will take place on the exact spot where King delivered his famous address on the same day in 1963.
Obama, the first black US president, will speak about the half century that has passed since the "March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom," which culminated with remarks by the Atlanta pastor and civil rights icon.
In 1963 King spoke in front of 250,000 people, explaining his wish for better relations between black and white Americans.
His words were engraved on the steps of the monument where he spoke.
President Lyndon B. Johnson, who took over when president John F. Kennedy was assassinated just four months after King spoke in Washington, signed landmark civil rights laws in 1964 and 1965.
Washington will celebrate the MLK anniversary August 21 through 28 with religious services, a march in King's footsteps and a festival.
Certainly an address by the president of the United States is appropriate. But delivering it on the same spot that King's thundering words helped change America?
Perhaps it's my partisan juices that are flowing too quickly this morning, but this smacks of more narcissism and hubris by the president. Many historians have rated the King speech as the best political address in American history. Does the president honor King or honor himself by duplicating the effort?
As they say in political-speak, "the optics are wrong." If the president is largely targeting his African-American base by performing this stunt, then you can say as a political gesture, it's acceptable.
But shouldn't honoring Dr. King rise above petty politics? Someone should remind the president that he is president of all Americans and that Dr. King belongs to all of us - not one race or interest group.Mr. Obama's plan just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I certainly hope he's not planning on going to Gettysburg in November for the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's speech.
