Sacramento Unification Rally

January 6, 2014

All Posts, News

California bikers should know that if the police allow it, there will be a “Unification Rally” in Sacramento this Saturday from ten in the morning until two in the afternoon.

The pack will assemble at 9:15 a.m. in the large parking lot of Cycle Gear at 5400 Date Avenue in Sacramento. If you miss the pack, you can still attend the rally at the California Capitol Building at 1400 Tenth Street in Sacramento

So far, the event appears to be an unusual episode of inter-club solidarity. The rally is officially sponsored by the Biker Rights Organization, California ABATE, the Modified Motorcycle Association and the regional Confederations of Clubs in California.

Hanging Together

Club support for the event is at least partly the result of widespread alarm over two recent events.

As part of the global war on the dangerous idea of motorcycle clubs, the government of the Australian state of Queensland implemented a series of totalitarian decrees that effectively outlaw membership in 25 motorcycle clubs there. The laws mandate that members of clubs and persons suspected of belonging to motorcycle clubs be forbidden the most basic legal rights and be singled out for humiliation and persecution. Implementation of the laws is wholeheartedly and blatantly supported by the United States Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security.

Most of the Australian measures would be unconstitutional in the United States although there is no Constitution without politicians, lawyers and writers who will speak up for it. Since October 2008, the Justice Department has been seeking a strategy that would be narrowly and technically constitutional yet would still allow prosecutors to effectively outlaw membership in targeted motorcycle clubs. The Mongols MC has been the target of most of this legal strategy. In 2008, without a legal justification, federal prosecutors claimed and most journalist reported that policemen could rip the patch off the back of any member of the Mongols without due process. Eager ATF agents soon applied the ban to all Mongols indicia including coffee mugs and calendars.

The government is still at it with the Mongols in a racketeering case titled United States versus Mongol Nation, an Unincorporated Association. The trial is currently scheduled for March 25 before Judge Otis Wright who seems to have already made up his mind that the Mongols can be outlawed. In a hearing last October, Wright said: “We do now have the owner of the marks indicted;” the Mongols insignia proclaims “to all, you do not (fuck) with the Mongols. They are operating under the banner of the Mongols.” “Forfeiture (of the Mongols patch) will be part of the eventual sentence.”

Everybody Invited

Every motorcyclist in the state, including sport bike riders, is urged to attend. The organizers’ published agenda includes: Motorcycle rider profiling, motorcycle modification laws, harassment of bikers riding in groups of three or more, exhaust pipe noise reduction, reflectors on sport bikes and license plate placement on sport bikes.

Phillip Heneghan wrote on the Bikers of America blog, “Come defend your ancient right of unhindered movement and your God given unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is not society nor any social right that forbids you – but the unalienable right of another man to live life. Any group, any gang, any nation, any “safety for your own good group” that attempts to negate a man’s rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is wrong and therefore could be deemed evil.”

Hang together or hang separately.

    Ol’Rebel must be in dispose. Wasn’t “SAVE THE PATCH” his idea to begin with?

  2. JMacK Says:

    Thanks for the update OC VAGO 1%er. I was curious.



  3. OC VAGO 1%er Says:

    I hear it went great. Huge attendance. Everyone behaved. All good.


  4. Austin Says:

    @ Sieg & OlGoat re; “Big 4 PH’s all mixed up, smaller clubs mixed in-between, but riding with one purpose to SAVE THE PATCH! This would abso-fukin-lutely enrage Politicians and koppers and the silent message that this would send would echo so loudly the entire nation would hear! SAVE THE PATCH, MIX AND MATCH! I never thought I would see the day.”

    Right ON! I hope this is happening Right Now & not too far from here. There is a much greater enemy than each other.

    @OC VAGO 1%er,

    I really hope so, too. My biggest fear is a fed pot stirring and good people getting hurt. After all, it is what they do best. Here’s to a great turnout with minimal hassle.




  8. OC VAGO 1%er Says:

    and so hopefully the assholes out there will have enough respect of this event to keep their cocks in their pants and play nice just for once

  9. Base Says:

    A lotto would make it fair. Because if all are focused on the main objective & not each other, the order will not matter. And a mixed group will defiantly send shock waves.

    But then everyone ride with whoever and meet in the middle then mingle would work also.

    The elitists will soil their shorts either way!

  10. slow-n-low Says:

    I’m thinking the producers of “Gangland” are jizzing in their pants thinking of how this rally would make for a great live broadcast. They could wheel out Jaybird, Billy and the rest of the crew and inform the masses how this is nothing more than a, “group of gangs gathering to plan crimes” or something like that.

    And to jump on the constitutional discussion above…there were many citizens of Boston who had their 4th Amendment rights violated (many on camera) while the whole nation watched the search for the Marathon Bomber. Sadly, people are asleep and nothing will come of it.


  11. Ol'Goat Says:

    Sieg, Flip a coin, pull straws for Road Captain, everybody else mix it up behind the Road Captain and PH’s: dont group up more than 2 or 3 or whatever, spread it out. I like your idea. Big 4 PH’s all mixed up, smaller clubs mixed in-between, but riding with one purpose to SAVE THE PATCH! This would abso-fukin-lutely enrage Politicians and koppers and the silent message that this would send would echo so loudly the entire nation would hear! SAVE THE PATCH, MIX AND MATCH! I never thought I would see the day.

  12. Sieg Says:

    Ol’ Goat, mix n match. With all the questions like that it’d be the only way to go. Picture that…3 abreast, 1 per Patch. They’d shit green.

    It’s gonna hafta happen sooner or later, just a question of how many good Bros end up dirt nappin or behind the wire first.


  13. Ol'Goat Says:

    @sieg:”The one sight that would frkn terrorize the HedFeds would be all the Patches riding together.”

    That would cause them fucking nightmares. I think you’re on to something. …but who leads? who follows? which club rides behind which club? …nice dream though.

  14. Ol'Goat Says:

    Bikers uniting under a newly formed religion is definitely possible but would be the “straw” that would cause gubmint to start walking all over all religions. Hell, I heard recently that gubmint’s already talkin about taxing churches. Bikers uniting under a religion would close the gap of seperation between religion and gubmint, and I believe that’s something that no one wants.

  15. Ol'Goat Says:

    @Grumpy: save me a hit man!

  16. Sieg Says:

    EH, good to see ya, man!

    Stroker, you know the drill…film at five. I imagine all the little Lettermen will be making notes on how to dress and how to ride, but that’s just the usual cost of doing bidness. Good on ya for getting this rolling, and I sure hope it spreads.


  17. FF Says:

    I must of got lost.

  18. stroker Says:

    @Jim Cramer;
    and Rebel FYI:

    This rally has the backing and support and organization of the California COCs, MMA and Abate. All permits bought, and parking for 5,000 scoots obtained. The Sacto police have seen at least one rally per year from us MC folk, so I don’t think we’ll see too much in the way of harassment, as long as we behave ourselves.

    Disclaimer: the author of the above statement takes no responsibility if things suddenly turn to shit!


  19. Erudite Hillbilly Says:

    Hoping to make it on two wheels. If not, the backup is to go four and take extra bodies. Fingers crossed and cameras charged in case the pork tries anything.

  20. Sieg Says:

    OF COURSE the piggers will try to stop it.

    The one sight that would frkn terrorize the HedFeds would be all the Patches riding together. If they couldn’t play their divide and conquer bullshit anymore, they’d have to rely on naked force to keep the people in-line. That doesn’t work as well as the almost-invisible-to those outside our world-force that they use now.


  21. Bobby T Says:

    Thank you for mentioning our rally this Saturday. The time has come for ALL riders to stand together as one unified community, take personal accountability for their freedoms and liberties and work towards common ground solutions to defend, preserve and advance the American Motorcycle lifestyle and culture for future generations to come.

    Dear Jim Cramer,

    Yeah. I think there is always a chance police might disallow anything — including this.


  23. Ol'LadyRider Says:

    I’ve planned – and canceled – and now planned again to be there. Will be a whirlwind trip, but its important enough to sacrifice some sleep for I think.

  24. Jim Cramer Says:

    In the first sentence you state “if the police allow it” Is there a chance they will try to stop it?

  25. CN Says:

    Grumpy: We’ve got some very hungry ego driven Has Beens here. Change the subject, mock the subject, ridicule the subject without regard to the importance or need just as long as they can dominate and divert the attention of the conversation, and woe be the soul who asks where the King’s clothes are! The minions of the Has Been stand ready to rat pack any who dare speak the truth. Then, when something goes wrong the Has Been is the first to say “I told you so” (feed the ego, starve the need). Hopefully those considering attending aren’t swayed by such ignorance driven self serving childishness. Pity the Has Been, he knows not what he does, If he did he would still be published.

  26. Oldskewl Says:

    Yup, I’ll be there….. It worked out so great when we stood there rally after rally and wrote letter after letter for the helmet law.

    Hope this one turns out better but I’m not holding my breath.

  27. Grumpy Says:

    Mannn,some of y’all get off track waay to fast.Rally,GREAT idea,hope it goes well.Now a bong hit for Jesus !

  28. neverwaz Says:

    @jj – The biker church could be after the Roman Catholic model, but its last days would likely resemble the Branch Davidians Waco Chapter. The Scientology model might work with Sonny Barger at the helm.


  29. Rashomon Says:

    I’d still end up an Atheist and in the minority as usual followed by some good old atheophobia, imprisonment and possibly death but if I could avoid paying taxes, it might be worth a look.

  30. jj solari Says:

    @ tooj – i am not sure the biker church of latter day – very latter day – saints would have to be based on the roman catholic model although bikers and the vatican do have a fanatical zeal for art and a few other very cool things. but we both at least see this is in fact a pathway worth investigating and i read that as progress.

  31. Paladin Says:

    When thinking of laws that have been passed, and then repealed; Prohibition comes to mind, as does the loosening or the elimination of laws regarding the use and possession of marijuana.

    “Five years of Prohibition have had, at least, this one benign effect: they have completely disposed of all the favorite arguments of the Prohibitionists. None of the great boons and usufructs that were to follow the passage of the Eighteenth Amendment has come to pass. There is not less drunkenness in the Republic, but more. There is not less crime, but more. There is not less insanity, but more. The cost of government is not smaller, but vastly greater. Respect for law has not increased, but diminished.”

    Ironically; Women played a major role in the passing of Prohibition and played a major role in its repeal. Women can be an intimidating force when they get behind a cause they’re passionate about. They’re “get out the vote” attitude could have a positive impact on the “Save the Patch” campaign. No one (especially politicians) likes or wants to argue with a woman, especially a group of women.

    Glenn S.,

    I think (I could be wrong) the court case you mentioned revolved around whether or not an individual, classified as a Minor, has the same constitutional protections as an Adult. Also, as I understand it, during the normal hours of operation, a Minor’s school becomes the guardian of that Minor, when that Minor isn’t under the supervision of a Parent. In this situation, the school’s rules would apply. Again; I could have this case confused with another.

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to),


  32. Tooj Says:

    JJ, I believe you may be onto something there. Of course, the obligatory list of “sacraments” would have to be compiled. Of course, any member of the “clergy” found misbehaving will be merely transferred to another “congregation”.

  33. BMW Says:

    This is an extremely important FIRST STEP toward fighting to preserve our rights (and the rights of others) to freely associate with others. However, we need these sorts of demonstrations in EVERY state or provincial capital in the US and Canada, during warm weather, with a couple of months’ advance notice so people can get time off work and spread the word.

    We need to work on this in our home states, and we need to plan now, so one date across the nation will bring motorcycle riders of all sorts together to preserve our right to ride and associate with people who ride!

    In the meantime, we can spread word of the Sacramento Rally!


  34. jj solari Says:

    motorcycle clubs should start calling themselves a religion instead of clubs. that way they would get – as do the muslims and the scientologists and jehovas witnesses and 7th day adventists and, oh my, you pick one – a modicum of liberty regarding their actions and movements and in fact they would likely benefit from a complete hands-off policy from bureaucrats and other political and law enforcement vermin. american bureaucrats and cops seem to fear religion. no matter what religion it might be. i am sure the Biker Unification Church could be created overnight and a complete creed as well. Since the vaunted Constitution declared religion free, as opposed to everything else it comments on, I see this as a logical and sensible solution to the non-freedom problem. The Constitution seems to have a particular affection for religion, and it doesnt seem to matter what the religion is. I see the Biker Congregational Church as a real possibility and winner here.

  35. JMacK Says:

    There’s so much snow here I literally can’t get access to the garage that my bike is currently stored in so there’s no way I’m riding down. If it was May, I’d be there.

    I hope there are so many bikes there that the attending pigs can’t hear each other squeal.


  36. Snow Says:

    Truth be told I live some 2300 miles away so I won’t be attending BUT if I could I would.
    Why ?
    Well for one thing participating in the legislative process is mandatory for effective and fair government.
    Second would be to show strength and solidarity to the powers that be we stand together on key issues.
    Third it is vital to show the general public that the motorcycling community are people like them, people who work for a living, pay bills and taxes just like they do.
    Fourth the riders in Texas have been having Legislative Day for years and have been very successful in getting their word out to their representatives.
    Fifth well damn it man it’s a party with your old friends and possibly a few new ones.
    The key is to remember that politicians aren’t like real people, their way of viewing the world is tainted and unreal for the most part.
    Be respectful whether you think they deserve it or not.
    Take one for the team, smile and tell them your wants in clear precise language.
    NO cursing or foul signs cause all that does is make a case for the law dogs.

    Agreed mostly. I also consider that Americans or for that matter, most other Nation’s citizens have a point in the affairs of their Nation where they hit a “critical mass” or “the straw tht breaks the camel’s back”. In my life time that happened during the Viet Nam War as well as the Civil Rights Movement. I clearly remember the course of history being swayed by the outrage of the people and in those days there wasn’t the amount of attention paid to the Constitution that we now see played out by the now active Libertarin movements. What started out as as the Orangeburg massacre and Rosa Parks ended with LBJ signing Civil Rights legislation. The Viet Nam War was brought to an end due in part to radical anti-war organizations and the pressure they brought to bare. I was in the Marines during the Viet Nam Era and I am not black so my views differed with some of those activists but my point is, social activism did play a role in changing the way America was headed so it is my opinion that this rally has the potential for at the very least bringing attention to our cause. Most people don’t think of the Orangeburg massacre when they think of the Civil Rights Movement but it was one of the first shots fired against the then segregated South. It was black college students from SC State being denied enterance to a bowling alley and ended up with the police shooting some of them when they resisted. All movements have to start somewhere and if I’m reading this right then what’s happening in Oz is being anticipated here next which is why I stated in my prior comment that being proactive is a good sign. With all due respect to all those who have commented here thus far, if it were to come to pass that the existing 1%’er MC’s within riding distance can lay down their differences and be joined by a fairly large amount of the registered motorcyclists geographically it would seem to follow that what passes for the Press would likely take notice especially on a slow news day which this weekend is shaping up to be. And, should this happen I also still submit that there exists the possibility of a ripple effect across not only the US but through out Europe as well (the demonstrations are already happening in Oz). Of course this begs the obvious winter weather considerations, as in, I wish this were happening in June or July however everything has to start somewhere and since Queensland decided to begin VLAD now (it’s summer down under) we’ve got no choice in the matter. A prior comment stated that the weather in California will be good so there’s that at least. The question seems to be whether the ball will be picked up nationwide which hopefully it will. I don’t believe being cynical about this does much more than perhaps show the self serving attitudes of those who are legends in their own minds. If you can’t be of some help, at least don’t hinder those who are doing more than you obviously are. If I’m wrong which being human I often am, then feel free to throw stones but for God’s sake leave those who are making an effort alone to do something which trumps doing nothing everytime.

  38. Glenn S. Says:

    jj solari said: “I want to say something about the “speaking up for the Constitution” idea. the Constitution is not something worth counting on and worth depending on to save us no matter who does its talking for it.”

    Sadly, JJ is right on this one. It all started with the premise that rights are not absolute, that if there is “a compelling state interest”, a right enshrined within the Constitution can be ignored by the government. Incrementally, the “compelling state interest” has been redefined to mean verbalized excuse and the bar keeps getting lower. Example: A kid skipped school and attended some event away from school and held a sign that said “bong hits for Jesus”. The school suspended him and he took them to court, claiming that his free speech rights had been violated. Eventually, the US supreme court ruled against him, claiming that the state had a legitimate interest in squashing the free speech. The problem then is that the courts will ignore the Bill of Rights as long as the government can come up with an articulatable reason that the right should not be enforced. In that case, the “reason” was only that the school system had to be allowed to maintain its rules to promote an atmosphere of education, and claimed the need to enforce those rules anywhere and everywhere one of its students happened to be. That’s a mighty low bar. If the government passes laws similar to the ones being beta tested Australia and claims a legitimate interest, the Supreme Court is likely to rubber stamp it. Between the time such laws might be enacted here and the time the Supreme Court either rules for the government or refuses to hear the cases, the TV news will have played and re-played every video of every act of violence done by any biker with a patch, even if the patch said: lone wolf, no club. The “experts” will have made the talk show circuit time and again. The sheep would Feel Safe.

    This rally sounds like a needed proactive first step. I don’t think that there’s ever been efforts to prevent restrictive laws before they’ve been passed. The only occasions I’ve ever heard of restrictive laws being repealed after they’ve been passed are the helmet laws and laws affecting big money’s efforts to make more big money. I hope there’s a ripple effect that reaches all over the country that include PR and media influence. I stand ready to help and support any such efforts.

    Wish I could be there.

  39. Base Says:

    Laws have stepped all over the Constitution for decades, so that’s noting new. Of course no piece of paper or document is going to help when martial law is enacted.

    Anyone having a revelation or illusions?

    Take the 2nd amendment. That’s all the permission I need to carry my colt. But the ass holes in this country/world have fucked that up.

    Ass hole elitists & elects forcing their will in a rush to save me from myself & ensure that their slice of the pie is bigger than mine. Oh so willing to take things from us, wanting us to follow all rules put in place by them while they merrily go about their way.

    Me, live & let live. No one any where has anything I want that I can not go out and find. What ever size slice of the pie I earn is fine with me. I have no desire to impose anything on anyone. And do not wish to be imposed upon. And I damn sure won’t take a dime I never earned.

    Then there is the elite’s ass hole lap dogs willing to be the boot on the neck of those that resist or do not want their so called help.

    Yeah yea, I know your just doing your job. What ever helps you sleep at night!

    Myself, I wouldn’t kick in the doors where innocents lay to get at the one person I seek. If I have beef with a person or persons. I take it up with them. Not their family. Even if I was ordered!

    Here’s a clue. When you follow orders that surpass morality, you are a lap dog! Fetch!

    Then you have the ass hole lets call them brandishes. The people because they carry have to ensure everyone knows they carry and brandish a weapon because they don’t like how another looked at them. Or over a parking spot!

    But then many folks are lacking in maturity & are very insecure, just surf the net!

    I know gun laws have nothing to do with this thread. It is just a small example of laws side stepping or stepping on the idea of the constitution. And been feeling a bit rant-t of late.

    How about the thousand of illegal search & seizures the American Police force executes everyday of the week with the citizens of this country. I fucking hate douche bag I am gonna fuck with you but don’t hate me because it’s my job cops! Yes I have a strong disdain for for punk asses. Moving on.

    A rally such as this and others across the country can and will do some good. Even it it just fore long’s the inevitable.

    But, if you beat something down before it gets started you choose defeatism as a way of structuring your life and the outcome of many an en-devour. Hey if it works for you, have at it. Sit up high on the fence, shout the nay’s & negatives,loud and get picked off!

    Never submit. It’s a “biker” thing, some folks never get it!

    Any & everyone that does or doesn’t ride a bike with in a 500 mile radius if they could make it should go. Even if your a little late. That’s how big this is. There is much more riding on this, the ripple effect folks!

    Even better if it happens across the nation.

    We could all standby and laugh & play the flute while it all burns.
    Or we could all pitch in and fan the flames of freedom.

    Who would you prefer burn, your self & yours?

    Or the ass holes?

    Respects folks

    “Most of the Australian measures would be unconstitutional in the United States although there is no Constitution without politicians, lawyers and writers who will speak up for it.”

    I want to say something about the “speaking up for the Constitution” idea. the Constitution is not something worth counting on and worth depending on to save us no matter who does its talking for it. It’s got no ability to do anything other than exist as is the case with most welfare recipients. the constitution is not going to keep the new laws enacted in australia – land of douchebag citizens and airhead bikers – from being enacted here. and even without laws being enacted arrests can still be made. there is not a law that has been conceived of that has not eventually been enacted sooner or later. these laws WILL eventually get passed and it will only remain to see if they are the tipping point to the complete and total marxist revolution and then sharia revolution that our president and his muslim brother of the buttocks, eric holder and the entire democratic party and 99% of the republican party want to ignite. an inundation of bikers in sacramento saturday MIGHT forestall things a bit and that alone is worth the experiment of showing up to see if its true. politicians however instinctively see bikers as the enemy since the two species are incompatible, politicians being parasitical bacteria and bikers being Americans. but on the other hand, who knows, a marxist revolution might be fun to jump into the middle of and fuck with. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

  41. Craney Says:

    The rally is 1.1 mile away from the Easyrider show at the Convention center. There is no reason not to attend the rally before you hit the show if you were already planning on going.

    No matter what your role in the cycle world is, or what you think it is for that matter, if you give a fuck about it, you’ll be there.

  42. Phuquehed Says:

    Man I wish I lived closer. I sure hope it’s a huge turnout so that the fucked-up lawmakers *have* to stand up and take notice and realize they’re fucking with peoples’ rights.

    Let’s hope too that some decent media folk turn up and will at least attempt to be truthful about why it’s happening etc and don’t cave to any pig force to write up anything the pigs want instead of the truth.

  43. Meh Says:

    Meanwhile, FBI drops “law enforcement” as primary mission, which obviously means if they target you, you must be a “national security threat”. Sounds a bit like the Communist term “enemy of the people”…

    “The FBI’s creeping advance into the world of counterterrorism is nothing new. But quietly and without notice, the agency has finally decided to make it official in one of its organizational fact sheets. Instead of declaring “law enforcement” as its “primary function,” as it has for years, the FBI fact sheet now lists “national security” as its chief mission. The changes largely reflect the FBI reforms put in place after September 11, 2001, which some have criticized for de-prioritizing law enforcement activities. Regardless, with the 9/11 attacks more than a decade in the past, the timing of the edits is baffling some FBI-watchers. “

  44. Coolaid Says:

    Very cool. I designed the logo for them a while back. It was VERY strange to do my weekly check in on Rebel and see my art there..

    I’m very glad to see this, and hope it works out well for all attending. I’ll be thinking about you guys while we sit in 0 degree weather. I hope to see the same things happening all over the country and a continued push to stand up for our rights in an organized and constructive way.

    C YA there!


  48. VINCE 1%er Says:

    THIS is a Very Worthwhile & Required Rally/Run for Everyone available in the West Coast arena.
    I *WISH* I were out there sooner to attend & represent (i’m gonna be in Cali. in Feb – a little too late for This particular Rally) – but it boggles the mind to even think(and Hope) and anticipate so many Different 1%ER Clubs to be in Attendance with a common goal and mindset,and to set aside differences & come together.It would certainly make an impact & difference if such an event occurs.With US Being the recipients of all good outcome,and support regarding the issues at hand that effect Us All.
    This could be the defining moment in which many Real Individuals band together for the good of a common cause that effects ALL Of Us.
    I’m hoping the event gathers all and the outcome is a *POSITIVE* one.
    Vince 1%ER

  49. CN Says:

    Being proactive rather than reactive seems wise. The thought of all the Clubs regardless of stripe or status, history or resentment putting all that aside, then on a mandatory run (if such be possible) staggers the imagination. The numbers alone would be mind blowing. Then consider the ripple effect as such gatherings happen across the country. Sounds too good to be true but sometimes Americans lay their differences aside and join together. It’s happened before and it can happen again but it’s gonna’ take all hands on deck. Sure hope it does.
