I participated in a poker run today to benefit a local homeless veterans’s resource center. I did not initially understand that it was being put on by a motorcycle club called Countrymen MC, but that became abundantly clear fairly quickly. It was my first time riding a street bike with a group or doing any sort of motorcycle themed event like that. My background is more motocross, but I’ve gotten too old and fat for that sort of thing, and I only got a street bike recently. So I am fairly clueless about rallies, clubs, events, etc. for street bikes. At the end of the day, a lot of money was raised for the homeless vets center, and I thought it was great, but when I looked up the MC’s Facebook page, and saw that they described themselves as three percenters, and looked that up, I really got an eyefull. That term is used to describe seditionist militias who support armed rebellion to protect the US Constitution, and the second amendment in particular. Also, it seems some members of this club provided security for the white power folks in Charlottesville, and the club responded to those events with a policy against such activity, and later some self described “three percenters” attacked a mosque, but I don’t think they were part of Countrymen MC. So I’m trying to figure out the lay of the land here. The Countrymen MC members I met seem like nice people, but I can’t put my license to practice law at risk by affiliating with any seditionist groups or militias. But I want a reality check. Is there anything to be concerned about here?
