Flight 93 on 9/11: Ride to Stop the Crescent Mosque [Reader Post]

By 4 Comments 763 views

Anyone live within driving distance of Somerset Pennsylvania? It’s a beautiful place to visit and a group of motorcyclists from Indianapolis is already going.

Tom Burnett Senior and Alec Rawls are buying full page color ads in the Somerset Daily American for both Friday the 10th and Saturday the 11th, so anyone who makes the trip will have a ready made protest sign waiting for them. Just buy a newspaper, tape the ad to a piece of cardboard, and let the massed national media know what side you are on.

That’s right. With Laura Bush and Michelle Obama both attending, it’s going to be a media circus, and a rare opportunity to force coverage of our issue. Just self-organize. Ad-holders will show a core of united opposition (and the media might even be forced to read our brief expose).

A PDF of the ad will be posted in another blogburst next week for anyone who wants to make signs ahead of time. There is also a set of small posters that were put together for a previous talk by Mr. Burnett. Just print with tiling to make the finished product as large or small as you want:

Board 1: The giant crescent

Board 2: It points to Mecca

Board 3: The gigantic Islamic sundial

Board 4: The 44 glass blocks

Petition to stop the Flight 93 memorial passes 10,000 signatures

Including a spate of dozen or so by 9/11 family members that feature some very strong comments. (See pages 198 and 199.)

It Points to Mecca video nearing 20,000 hits

Thanks to big fat repostings by Creeping Sharia and Atlas Shrugs. Thank You!

Here are parts 2, 3 and 4 (also worthy):

If you haven’t been to Shanksville before, there really is no lovelier place on earth than an open field in that sprawling Sherwood Forest that is Western Pennsylvania. Drink it in. There is something in the air at that patriots’ grave.

    Alec I was just out there today. The “visitor center” has now been moved to a temporary memorial location, with the memorial well underway. I spoke with one of the rangers who told me they are expecting the biggest crowd ever for two reasons: 911 is on a Saturday this year and also of course, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama will be keynote speakers.

    The only way in will be on shuttle buses.

    I was only ever there once before, and it was about a year or so after the accident. I now have a summer home in the area so took a drive out there today. I have to admit it was rather disappointing, for lack of a better word. The first time I visited there was a big outside wall, very moving with the “grave” out to the distance.

    Now the area is very small, with no outside mention of the victims. I know it’s only the temp situation, but other than a few flowers and flags on the fence, one would not even know it was the crash site of flight 93.

    For what it’s worth, I think it will be a very difficult place for a protest (the visitor area is very tiny), unless it’s along the road on the way in.

    I wish I had the funds to attend. I also feel that the media will do like they always do, focus on the people that will be bused in to promote Michelle and ignore those who oppose the monument as is.
