When the corporate media mounts a hysterical campaign against a planned march on Washington DC…you know you’d better be there.
And when the anti-March-on-Washington blitz is led by Fox News, World Net Daily, Breitbart, and the ADL…you can see exactly who is running scared.
The neocon nutjobs are frothing at the mouth about the Million American March Against Fear. Why? Because it promises to bring a broad coalition of Americans together to protest the post-9/11 politics of fear.
The neocons thrive on fear. They have terrorized Americans about “terrorism” – even though you are dozens of times more likely to be hit by lightning or drown in your bathtub than fall victim to a terrorist.
The neocon fear-mongers have shredded the Constitution, launched a series of idiotic and illegal wars, and bankrupted the country. By coming to Washington this September 11th, you’re telling them: “We’re not afraid any more.”
Fox News and its sister neocon propaganda outlets are promoting a big lie about the march. They are calling it a “Million Muslim March.” They want to keep terrorizing Americans about the “scary Muslims.”
The truth is, as the Washington Post reported, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ANY “MILLION MUSLIM MARCH.” It is a MILLION AMERICAN MARCH AGAINST FEAR.
Last year, some of the organizers floated the idea of a “Million Muslim March.” But that idea was shelved. Since February, the only plan has been for a MILLION AMERICAN MARCH AGAINST FEAR.
Yet Sean Hannity and other rabid neocons keep lying and saying there will be a “Million Muslim March.”
Fox News, why are you lying? Are you afraid…of people waking up and not buying your fear-mongering propaganda any more?
Simply by showing up in Washington, you will be making a powerful statement: I am not afraid.
Simply by showing up in Washington to join civil libertarians, anti-drone protesters, defenders of the Constitution, 9/11 skeptics, peace activists, anti-bankster campaigners, freedom-loving bikers, and of course those scary anti-terrorist Muslims of AMPAC, you will be telling Hannity and his foxy fearmongering friends: Sorry Sean, we aren’t scared of our fellow Americans.
When the Million American March Against Fear was launched last February, the organizers had no money and no established organization behind them. The odds of getting more than ten people to DC looked remote. Fortunately, Fox News and its assets came to the rescue. Hannity’s bullying backfired, as a huge list of groups came on board to participate in the March. Among the participants will be March Against Drones, several Tea Party groups, Muslims for Liberty, the National Gun Association, Journalistic Revolution, Occupy 9/11, Occupy Goldman-Sachs, the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance, Progressive Leadership Legacy, Truth Broadcast Network, and dozens of other groups. Professionals will soon be revamping AMPAC’s current low-budget website and building a sophisticated communications infrastructure for the massive media turnout that is expected.
Many participants will remain in Washington DC for a few days after September 11th to attend the DC 9/11 Truth Conference on the weekend of September 14th and 15th. (The Conference will take place in the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel – in a room overlooking the Pentagon!) This is an opportunity to explore your nation’s capital, see some of the sights you’ve always wanted to check out, and – most importantly – do something important for your country.
FDR said it best: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
Those who stay home will be saying they accept the politics of fear.
Those who come to Washington will be saying the opposite.
Which side will prevail?
My guess is that a smaller number of fearless people can easily overcome a much larger number of terrified zombie sheeple. History shows that it doesn’t take a lot of people to change the world.
But the more, the better.
See you in DC!
