Johnstown, PA (GlossyNews) – Local and state police scoured the hills outside rural Johnstown, Pennsylvania, after reports of three animal rights activists going missing after attempting to protest the wearing of leather at a large motorcycle gang rally this weekend. Two others, previously reported missing, were discovered by fast food workers “duct taped inside several fast food restaurant dumpsters,”

They picked the wrong group to protest, apparently.

These self-important protestors annoy me but duct taping them and putting them in a dumpster could be deadly and is just evil.

Oh never mind. It is satire. So this time I get to be the self righteous guy in the thread who gets caught by the satire.

I don't know for sure which motorcycle gang it would have been... but the Pagans, who are around the Pittsburgh/Greensburg area were at one time a bunch not to be messed with.

Perhaps they still are...

My bad... it was the Outlaws, not the Pagans:

From the article:

"'Something just went wrong,' said a still visibly shaken organizer of the protest. 'Something just went horribly, horribly, wrong.'"

More on the story here:

“Something just went wrong,” said a still visibly shaken organizer of the protest. “Something just went horribly, horribly, wrong.”

The organizer said a group of concerned animal rights activist groups, “growing tired of throwing fake blood and shouting profanities at older women wearing leather or fur coats,” decided to protest the annual motorcycle club event “in a hope to show them our outrage at their wanton use of leather in their clothing and motor bike seats.” “In fact,” said the organizer, “motorcycle gangs are one of the biggest abusers of wearing leather, and we decided it was high time that we let them know that we disagree with them using it…ergo, they should stop.”

According to witnesses, protesters arrived at the event in a vintage 1960’s era Volkswagen van and began to pelt the gang members with balloons filled with red colored water, simulating blood, and shouting “you’re murderers” to passers by. This, evidently, is when the brouhaha began.

“They peed on me!!!” charged one activist. “They grabbed me, said I looked like I was French, started calling me ‘La Trene’, and duct taped me to a tree so they could pee on me all day!”

“I…I was trying to show my outrage at a man with a heavy leather jacket, and he…he didn’t even care. I called him a murderer, and all he said was, ‘You can’t prove that.’ Next thing I know he forced me to ride on the back of his motorcycle all day, and would not let me off, because his girl friend was out of town and I was almost a woman.”

Still others claimed they were forced to eat hamburgers and hot dogs under duress. Those who resisted were allegedly held down while several bikers “farted on their heads.”

< Police officials declined comments on any leads or arrests due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, however, organizers for the motorcycle club rally expressed “surprise” at the allegations.

“That’s preposterous,” said one high-ranking member of the biker organizing committee. “We were having a party, and these people showed up and were very rude to us. They threw things at us, called us names, and tried to ruin the entire event. So, what did we do? We invited them to the party! What could be more friendly than that? You know, just because we are all members of motorcycle clubs does not mean we do not care about inclusiveness. Personally, I think it shows a lack of character for them to be saying such nasty things about us after we bent over backwards to make them feel welcome.”

When confronted with the allegations of force-feeding the activists meat, using them as ad hoc latrines, leaving them incapacitated in fast food restaurant dumpsters, and ‘farting on their heads,’ the organizer declined to comment in detail. “That’s just our secret handshake,” assured the organizer.

I don’t think so. A local Conservative (Russ Cassell) talk show host was talking about this story this past Monday.

I’d rather shrink wrap them to the front of car or a boat or even a motorcycle. They look much better as hood ornaments than as genderless human beings.

LOL. Satire aside, this motorcyclist will not ride without full racing-leather, on track or off. Road-rash is nasty and painful, and a spill can happen when least expected, more so in regular traffic than on the track - no thanks (seen too much of it on other riders). When it’s too hot outside, I’ll rather not ride at all. At the very least, wear good boots and gloves - the hands and feet always tend to go down on the ground first. Shorts, flip-flops, t-shirts, no gloves - IDIOTS! Should be denied any medical insurance coverage.

Pagans have a presence in this area of the world as do several other larger groups. We used to ride wearing a patch back in the late 80’s early 90’s. “Sons of Anarchy” is about as close to the real thing as anything I’ve seen except the show dabbles in more lawlessness than I ever saw.More like what you’d see out of the Outlaws or Angels if you ask me.

If this wasn’t satire I’d say that that is exactly what would happen to someone who tried to get between a biker and their leather.I once saw a drunk guy drove out to the middle of nowhere, his clothes taken and left there for spilling a beer on someone’s leather. :)

Who is the terrorist recruiter that talked these fools in to going to a biker event to protest leather? If they can get these people to do something this stupid they could talk them in to doing anything.
