The Iron Order Outlaw Motorcycle Gang

August 6, 2014

Senior military officers continue to call the Iron Order Motorcycle Club an outlaw motorcycle gang or OMG.

The Iron Order is a fast growing and aggressive motorcycle club that has branded itself as a “law abiding motorcycle club.” According to the ATF, “The Iron Order is one of the fastest growing motorcycle clubs in the United States. Members wear a traditional three-piece patch with a State bottom rocker. The fact that they wear the State bottom rocker has infuriated the HAMC, Outlaws, Iron Horsemen, Pagans and Bandidos. More importantly, many of their members are police and corrections officers, active-duty military and/or government employees and contractors.”

Cop Club

Recently John C. Whitfield, one of the founders of the Iron Order was quoted as saying the club “was started by a former secret-service agent in 2004…. More than half of our guys are military or law enforcement.” Whitfield also identified an Iron Order member who is an ATF Agent in Oklahoma as a source of information for the club.

Many police officers in the United States seem to regard the Iron Order as a force for good in a Manichaean struggle with evil motorcycle clubs. The distinction between who is naughty and who is nice is convenient for the sorts of police who want to perfect America through the use of extra legal violence.

The idea that the Iron Order is somehow more law abiding than other motorcycle clubs has blatantly contaminated the stymied investigation of the murder of  Zachariah “Nas T” Tipton outside Nippers Beach Grille in Jacksonville Beach, Florida in late June. Tipton was a member of the Black Pistons Motorcycle Club. He was shot in the head and killed by a member of the Iron Order. The confessed killer was released by Jacksonville Beach police without being charged. His name and most details of the murder, including the medical examiner’s report, remain official secrets.

Camp Pendleton

Military commanders however, continue to see the Iron Order less ambiguously than policemen do. For example a document recently distributed to service members at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton threatened sailors and Marines who join the Iron Order with “administrative or disciplinary actions, including administrative separation or appropriate punitive action.” The document was issued under the authority of DOD Instruction 1325.06, titled “Handling Dissident and Protest Activities Among Members of the Armed Forces.”

The document defines Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs “as organizations whose members use their motorcycle clubs as conduits for criminal enterprise. The following motorcycle clubs are recognized by the DOJ and/or California state and local Law Enforcement Agencies as OMGs: The Bandidos, Black Pistons, Hells Angels, Mongols, Outlaws, Sons of Silence, Pagans, Vagos, Green Nation, Green Machine, Military Misfits, Filthy Bastards, Iron Order, Grunts MC, Brotherhood, Vietnam Vets, Devils Disciples, Legacy Vets, Peckerwoods, and Diablos. This list is inclusive of identified OMGs in the southern California area but may not include all others outside that region.”

The document specifically forbids active participation in any of those clubs and states that “Active participation includes, but is not limited to, fundraising; demonstrating or rallying; recruiting, training, organizing, or leading members; distributing material (including posting on-line); knowingly wearing gang colors or clothing; having tattoos or body markings associated with such gangs or organizations; or otherwise engaging in activities in furtherance of the objective of such gangs or organizations that are detrimental to good order, discipline, or mission accomplishment or are incompatible with military service.”

    Too bad I missed it. And you’re right, I don’t go to gay bars.

    Long May You Ride,

    Funny these kids, who all of a sudden decide one day they want to be a Biker. So they Buy a motorcycle and go right out looking for a Club to join.
    They don’t have a clue as to what it’s all about, just think It looks cool!!
    They get into it for the wrong reasons….That’s where IO come in. All about Money and looking cool, Brotherhood doesn’t even come into the equation. They talk about Brotherhood because they think they’re supposed to. But is it real? I don’t think so. Too easy to get in and out to be any real dedication.

    They’ve completely skipped the part of living the Biker lifestyle long before being invited to ride with a Club. I didn’t join a Club until 1984, was riding, partying, going to Biker bars meeting club members, served in the Army, all that shit for years before becoming a Brother. I wasn’t even looking for a Club to join, I just became close to some members over the years. Hell, most of the Bikers I new then, were not in Clubs.
    You don’t have to wear a patch to be a Biker. But the small percentage of Bikers who do become patch holders have a dedication to each other that I have never seen anywhere else, Even the Army couldn’t compare to the loyalty of 1%er patch holders. There’s good and bad in every Club, but for the most part, there’s a love that can’t be broken. I am no longer in that Club, But still live the life.
    You young guys need to pay your dues first, If you don’t, It’ll never be real. Just another thing given to you that you like but don’t really respect.

    Respect to 1%ers

    Congratulations on taking the star-ship “Pathetic” where no man has gone before.

    Dear Boy Scout,

    You say the IO aren’t going anywhere? Maybe you can explain why they had 400 members at their ‘Nationals’ this year, down from over 3000 at their peak? Or why they have been ordered to hide their patches? Or why they are NEVER seen on the road? You display all the qualities of an IO wannabe, disrespect, immaturity, cowardice and a penchance for pissing other men off. You’d be a good fit, in their club and their assholes.


  11. CAV SCOUT Says:

    I’m not in the Iron Order. I ride with the SCV Mechanized Cavalry.

    I’m just saying the few guy’s I met at the local club house were cool, I even asked if there where any cops in the chapter and they said no. but they do have a few vet’s that were in some of the same place’s of Iraq as me.

    I don’t know that much about IO, I was just saying the dude’s I met seemed like nice people. And everybody jump’s down my throat, So yea I got pissed. Hell I could drink a beer with anybody even some of the assholes on here

  12. Shovelhead Says:

    Kraut, damn spelling!

  13. Sieg Says:

    Kraut, don’t even bother-it’s just another cunt, trolling along.


  14. Shovelhead Says:

    Respect to you Krout!!

    I’d bet my 1973 Shovel, that I still ride everyday, is older than Cav Boy. I don’t think myself, or anyone else who’s commented here lately is mad about anything. The only angry person here is the IO wannabee.
    Why are you so mad Cav? Why do you feel the need to justify your choices with us? Why are you here? Believe me, no one cares about you or what you do in life. You’ll have to live with your choices, not me. I’m just having fun poking the whiny kid.

  15. The Kraut Says:

    Cav Scout: chill the fuck out junge…Shovelhead,Sieg and Panamaa are men I’ve yet to meet in person….however, I would ride with and stand up with them anyday.

    As a veteran,you need be better behaved when in company of older veteran/bikers.

    Bail on the IO…you will only serve them as a useful idiot.

    Respect to those who warrant respect

  16. slycechyx Says:

    Total respect to those that have served. Married 36 years to a jarhead.

  17. CAV SCOUT Says:

    HA HA, all you pussy’s on this 3 year old thread keep getting all upset and red faced when a real man talks. its fucking hilarious. I would be willing to bet that shoveldickhead has never even set on a motorcycle, and sieg and panamaa are hipster gamers that need a tan cause you never come outside your house. fucking little faggots

  18. slycechyx Says:

    Cav, ever heard of stolen valor?
    Ever heard of give respect, get respect?

  19. Shovelhead Says:

    Well, not that I ever thought they would, but it’s pretty obvious IO has not learned from past mistakes and are still recruiting Mammas Basement Boys into the circle jerk club. Kartman Cav (Respect my Authoritah) is the same type of little punk know it all, that they’ve been recruiting from the beginning. I’ve done this, I’ve done that, now respect me…Hahaha, whiny little bitch. I think Mommy told you, you were special one to many times. Put your football helmet back on Cav and go out and play with the other little retards!

  20. panamaa Says:

    Gezzz, another one of these dipshits posting on a 3 year old article. What a fuckwad…

    And by the way, fuck the io…

  21. Sieg Says:

    The thread that wouldn’t die, redux…

    If you have to demand respect, you haven’t earned any.

    Fuck all bait cliques and the half-assed brain-dead who inhabit them.
