Activists Missing After Declaring “War on Leather” at Motorcycle Rally

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,” according to police officials.

“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.

Re: "Animal" rights.. join the party!

“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.”

In the first place, pelting the with balloons filled with colored liquid sounds like the incident started off with common assault.

In the second place, while I would stand fast by the right for this person to hold and speak to the above opinion, its highly questionable. While some of it is purely fashion, most of us wear leather to keep the wind, bugs and rocks from injury. Better leather skin that my skin, and just what to these folks want done with the cow and cattle hides. I suppose the want to end the dairy and cattle industry too. Its the same with kooks offended by veal. Yes, its infant beef; but its always male beef from a dairy farm. Do they think you can get milk without calves, or do they want to see them all adopted.

I wonder if these nuts were around 140 years ago when cowboys and horses needed dusters to keep the saw grass from cutting them up. Probably not there for along, as they could just shoot them back then.

Re: "Animal" rights.. join the party!

Calm down here, folks. It's satire (look it up), which basically means it's just random fiction meant to point out the absurdity of a situation.

It. Didn't. Happen.

My guess is that someone read the following bumper sticker and decided to write a "story" about it.



That doesn't make it true.

"Glossy News" ranks just below "The Onion" for "truth", but still somewhere well above Fox "News".

"But I read it on the Internets so it must be true . . . "

Re: "Animal" rights.. join the party!

omg - MORONS
Tell ya summin' - I was a vegan for nearly 20 years, like my religion, I never rammed it down anyones throat. But I wore leather on a bike, always have and always will. MAYBE, if ALL the world went vegan, I would think twice - BUT cows die (well Kangaroos in my case(far tougher leather!), so they are really mad.

Agreed, but too many folks have trouble understanding the difference between comedy and truth. Not a big deal normally, except that some of them vote . . .

Damn, nice retort, Kevin. Short yet sarcastic. Well done.
