We (wife & me) arrived a bit late to yesterday’s anti-Islamization of America rally a few blocks from Ground Zero in downtown Manhattan. Because of our late arrival we were unable to get closer to the stage, but there was no shortage of great people and weird characters in the rear.
The rally wasn’t just to protest the disgusting Ground Zero (Park 51) project, but to also defend our long held right to free speech and freedom of and from religion. Most of the people at the rally understand the consequences of kowtowing to Islam; they realize what is already happening throughout Western Europe.
Here are some photos from the event.
It was a pleasure to be among the people who attended the rally. These are the people who understand and appreciate the freedoms that many take for granted. They also understand that a large portion of Islam is antithetical to those very freedoms. Most of us have no problem if Muslims want to practice their religion in America, but we have a problem giving them special privileges or protections for their religion. In America we not only have freedom of religion, but we also have freedom from religion.
