NPS denies permit request of biker group looking to honor those who died on 9/11

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

The National Park Service denied the permit request of a biker organization – “2 Million Bikers to DC” – to ride through Washington D.C. on September 11, in honor of “those who were killed” during the 2001 terrorist attacks.

TheBlaze spoke to an NPS spokeswoman yesterday, who confirmed the permit had been denied:

Carol Johnson, spokeswoman for the NPS, cited logistical concerns for denying the permit.

“They (the NPS) looked at it (the permit application) and decided it would cause a severe service disruption of traffic both inside and outside the area around the mall,” said Johnson, who then jokingly added “[I] wish the bikers would leave me alone.”

“The size of the event, we can’t manage,” Johnson said. “We couldn’t provide adequate park police services and park police escorts and it would require a lot of road closures so it was denied.”

Interestingly, the NPS granted a permit to a Muslim organization to hold a “Million American March” (previously known as the Million Muslim March) on the National Mall on September 11, but the biker group was denied.

The group has not let the lack of permit deter them. “The group said on its Facebook page that it plans to converge on D.C. despite the permit that is not showing up. ‘We don’t need a stinking permit.’ I love that quote,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “‘We have our constitutional rights and we shall ride.’ That’s from Belinda Bee, the event organizer.”

Organizers are now saying thousands of bikers are expected to participate in the ride through D.C. on September 11.

“The bikers shall ride in the nation’s capital. Why,” Glenn asked. “Why not? They’re on public roads that they didn’t build.”

    So you see Obama White House supports terrorism in Syria and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt but yet not support people honoring 9/11 victims. The more I see this White House speak the more I wonder if they are not terrorist themselves.

    They are, on the lines of domestic political, social, judicial, government and economic terrorism.

    I think that the reason why the support terrorist groups is because they can relate to them more than the founding fathers.

    If I had a motorcycle I’d be inclined to join them.  Ride folks and don’t let the NPS or any other gubmint agency stop you. Time to stand and be counted and tell those who want to micromanage everything in our lives to take a hike – or in this case a bike!

    I hope they ride right through the “muslim” march.  And please be riding HOGS!  Toss a few bags of bacon bits and pork rinds while your at it.  For these Muslims to pick 9/11 for their damn “march” is nothing but an insult in the first place.  March during Ramadan, march on any day but that one.

    Simple issue of “Freedom to travel between the states”. Isn’t Washington D.C. between states?

    Freedom of movement under United States law is governed primarily by the Privileges and Immunities Clause of the United States Constitution which states, “The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.” As far back as thecircuit court ruling in Corfield v. Coryell, 6 Fed. Cas. 546 (1823), the Supreme Court recognized freedom of movement as a fundamental Constitutional right. In Paul v. Virginia, 75 U.S. 168 (1869), the Court defined freedom of movement as “right of free ingress into other States, and egress from them.”[1] However, the Supreme Court did not invest the federal government with the authority to protect freedom of movement. Under the “privileges and immunities” clause, this authority was given to the states, a position the Court held consistently through the years in cases such asWard v. Maryland, 79 U.S. 418 (1871), the Slaughter-House Cases, 83 U.S. 36 (1873) and United States v. Harris, 106 U.S. 629 (1883).[2][3]

    Says here that federal government cannot protect this right which also means that it CANNOT INFRINGE UPON IT! Only the states can stop them, bet they won’t.Ride with Pride my Brothers. But ride in Peace as well…

    My
    guess is that the permits were denied to the bikers out of fear.
    Allowing all those bikers in the same area with a all those Muslims
    would be like running around explosives with a blow torch. I
    wouldn’t want to be anywhere around DC tomorrow.

    I for one, would LOVE to be there!  On a Harley, wearing red, white and blue AND carrying a BIBLE!  I would go straight through the muslims.  Poor babies, they feel disrespected because of being muslim.  Hey geniuses, start standing against terrorism and kick the anti-American imams out of your mosques.  Act like you want to be here, and recognize the fact we have our rights too.

    Muslims were not happy in the countries they came from like Gaza, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria and Lebanon. They are happy in Australia, England, France, Italy, Germany, Sweden, United States, and Norway.
    They are happy in every country that is not Muslim. Who do they blame? They don’t blame Islam, their leadership or even themselves. THEY BLAME THE COUNTRIES THEY ARE HAPPY IN. Now they want to change the countries they are happy in to be like the countries they came from. GO FIGURE.

    I would be willing to bet that Saudi Arabia would not permit any non-muslim western group to march peacefully to – or around mecca!

    I get your point but youre a dolt, they are not happy anywhere. They are savages stuck in the 7th century bound by a religion that is also a political doctrine. The mistake is in thinking this mindset can be defeated, it cant. BRING ALL OUR BOYS HOME……leave the savages to themselves…..

    You don’t know me.  You have never seen me when I am angry.  My family and friends will tell you that if I get pushed so far, well, lets just say it isn’t pretty.  And this whole Muslim march business is ticking me off big time.  Now go back under your bridge, troll.

    Although  I admire the bike ride thru DC, I wouldn’t do it because you can never get enough bike in there, two, I would bring my own gas from another state and not fill up Maryland or DC,  and three, the DC probably on strict orders from the WH or Congress to enforce EPA violations on the motorbikes harshly to stick up more revenue to their NSA coffers.

  • robert hamrick

    Here is another thing that bothers me, this ride has been going on since the first yr of the 9/11 terrorist attack( yes, i said terrorist attack). Dont let this govt sleep you into submission with all the crazyness goin on, be proactive, you know what they are, say and expose it out loud, yes even in a WalMart. at a restaurant, selectively at work, If you say it, it will be heard even if they try to ignore it. So, put it to them

     You’ve got that right Travis76.  There is nothing to “wonder” about anymore.  If you don’t see what is happening to our country as proof positive that Obama and his minions are terrorists, you never will.

    Am surprised that it wasn’t the EPA who objected to the biker’s ride—all those nasty emissions,

    you know.   Let’s see who makes the greater impression—the bikers or the Muslim ”hikers”?

    And why are the hikers marching?  In support of the Muslim terrorists who died on 9/11?

    Or are they ”patriotic Americans” in sympathy for the victims who died on 9/11?  If so, they had

    better speak out against their brethren more often and not just once a year.

    Oh, boy!  You got that right, sarge!   Rec’d an email from a friend in the Philippines

    who had fwd a video on what the Muslims are doing to/in Australia.  Scary.  No doubt,

    will be happening here.

    sarge, Very good.  On the other hand, I would give them 3 ”patriotic American” cheers

    which would be more crude, using 2 words—the 1st word starting with ”F.”

    Just saw on Fox/The Five today (Wed.) that they did cover this.  Don’t know how many
    bikers,  but the Muslim march had few people showing up.

    The bikers did their job and more power to them,

    Now all CHRISTIANS need to do our part.  We need to do a 10 Million Christian March on DC on Christmas Day.  For those that can not get to DC every Christian should show up at their respective State Capital on Christmas Day.  This will show our leaders we are still a CHRISTIAN NATION and show the world we are here, we are alive and will not take this any more!  And most importantly, show GOD American’s still honor him.
