    Arizona authorities are bracing for an anti-Islam biker rally scheduled outside a Phoenix mosque. John Ritzheimer, an ex-Marine organizing the event called for participants to come armed and draw cartoons of Prophet Mohammed.

    Ritzheimer says he is targeting the Islamic Community Center because the two Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) sympathizers who attacked a Texas event featuring caricatures of Mohammed used to attend the mosque.

    “This is in response to the recent attack in Texas where two armed terrorist, with ties to ISIS, attempted jihad. Everyone is encouraged to bring American flags and any message that you would like to send to the known acquaintances of the two gunmen. This Islamic Community Center is a known place that the two terrorist frequented,” says the Facebook invitation to the event. By Thursday afternoon, fewer than 300 out of nearly 3,000 people invited had indicated they might show up...

    “Everybody has a right to be a bigot. Everybody has a right to be a racist. Everybody has a right to be an idiot,” Shami told KPNX. “They're not looking for an intellectual conversation. They're looking to stir up controversy and we're not going to be a part of it."

    These guys are as bad as the Westboro Baptist Church. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    More power to them! The DAESH need to be made fun of, and those idiots are welcome to try disrupting a biker convention. They might, however, find out that bikers aren't exactly armed with flowers and prayer beads.

    At first I had more mixed feelings about this because if the people in the mosque are minding their own business and not hurting anyone then they should be left alone. But when I read this...

    “
    ...I got pissed because by playing race card and further inciting the very people he should be convincing that he's a nice Muslim, he lost any sympathy I had for him. It's pretty bad when, of all people, Muslims play the race and idiot cards.

    Bikers have taken a black eye because of the Waco incident. This is an attempt to improve their image by offending an even less popular category of people.

    This is too funny.

    I'm going to demonstrate at my local Catholic church because Catholics used to burn witches.

    Not only are you free to do so, but your right to do that should be protected by everybody who values free speech.

    only peaceful rallies are legal, calling for people to come armed might make it illegal

    Right, because millions of armed Americans aren't peaceful at all.

    as should anyone's right to criticize him for doing so if he so chooses

    no one is saying they do nto have the right to peacefully protest.... but that doesn't mean they have to think it's good for them to do so

    I agree the artist should be able to create a p-Christ artwork, but I do not think it was right for him to do so.....

    You had no sympathy you are making excuses for your bigotry. Bikers like the pathetic garbage that shot up a bar recently. Let them trespass and then they should be put in prison for that and add hate crime.

    No such thing as free speech in Australia. There is no provision for freedom of speech in the Australian constitution. Also Australia doesn't have a Bill of Rights. Every attempt to draft a Bill of Rights has been thwarted by the right side of politics.

    Just saying!

    Considering earthy biker humor many of those resulting cartoons should be fascinating.

    Why shouldn't they? Finally, a group that isn't afraid of what Muslims might do to them, because they have balls to give it right back.

    Wasn't aware of that, given how outspoken every Ozzie I ever met has been. Is it ever a real issue as a practical matter there? They would have to lock up 90% of the country.

    How do you know how I feel? If people aren't bothering anyone then no one should bother them. Unless this mosque did something to draw attention to themselves then they should be left alone.

    Legal carry should be illegal? Are you calling for the relinquishment of legal rights and personal protections because they are participating in a legal, peaceful rally?

    Don't (*)(*)(*)(*) around with the Dykes on Bikes. They aren't 1%ers but the 1/10%ers.

    The Hells Angels have the Dirty Few, guess what the Dykes on Bikes have ?
