At least one million bikers have descended on the nation’s capital today, according to Washington D.C. police. Driving in from Canada and all over the United States, the bikers, who were denied a permit for their demonstration, were flooding the capital.

FULL COVERAGE: 2 Million Bikers Rally To Washington , DC 9-11 TRIBUTE 2013
The stunning show of patriotism is culminating in a rally on the National Mall that began at 4:00 ET
The event was organized on a Facebook page called “2 Millions Bikers to DC” after a “One Million Muslim March” was announced. The page says the rally is “To remember those who were killed on 9/11 and honor our armed forces who fought those who precipitated this attack.” The bikers have stated their opposition to President Obama’s push to “fundamentally transform” the U.S.
In sharp contrast, only about 25 people showed up for the Muslim march, renamed the “Million American March Against Fear” after the original name was criticized as inappropriate for the date of Sept. 11.
