Right to Free Speech - Did I Cross the Line ..... (Edited 06/24/14 06:07PM by hockey54)
Ok... We all have websites that we put stuff on ..Well to tell you right off the bat..."My patch is off !" When I can't write anything that doesn't involve the MC & I had premission to post pics of a couple of teenage girls who only wanted pics of them on their Daddy's trike & premission from their Mother to post them on my FB.No club was mentioned or shown on any of the pics.We had a friend who had gotten hurt & I posted -"Does anyone have any updates on daryl,last I heard he had a broken collar bone,broken ribs & a punctured lung & he was headed into surgery."That's all I put & the next thing I know I'm getting told to either take off my patch or everyone will be taking off theirs.I didn't post anything about the club or what happened where or anything .Ted read thru my FB & said that their wasn't anything that involved any MC (motorcycle club).He's Vice President of OMM. So I just got so tired of the crap I took off my patch.So was they in the right to censor my freedom of speech - No!! People that's not the President of OMM - called Ted & chewed his ass out  - I have a feeling it will be the end of the club....

That's one of the problems with m.c.'s. to many wanting to control.   You guys just need to be bike people not bikers, trust me, it's a lot more satisfying.   smiley

that's what this started out to be just a group of people who like to ride motorcycles - I know how that felt !! but my Brother in law who don't know what being a real biker do not know how to be- he's a wanna be - my hubby knows what it's like for real !! but he's very pissed & he didn't want it to go this far either.This club won't last that long or things are going to change!

I think you did the right thing. You don't need the club to enjoy riding and you were not in violation.

From what you wrote, I don't see anything wrong with what you posted.    Nothing involved the club.   (I know some clubs have bylaws that are agreed upon which may include what gets published online and in the media, but most don't)

If there are no rules, and from what you stated, no mention of the club was mentioned, you are definitely in the clear.   If the president and vice president of the club say you're ok, then other members can stuff it.     If they don't like it, then there's the proverbial sunset they can ride off into.

It's probably for the better if it doesn't. It sounds like there are to many voices with no one saying hey, this is how it's going to be. m.c.'s are hard to get started and harder to stay a group.

I don't see that you did anything wrong. If some people don't like it tough.

Private clubs have private rules that don't necessarily have to follow the US Constitution.
If rule #1 is "Don't talk about Motorcycle Club" then guess what?

That's the thing- I NEVER PUT ANYTHING THAT INVOLVED ANY OF THE CLUBS OR PUT A CONNECTION TO OUR FRIEND'S ACCIDENT WITH THE RALLY.I WASN'T GOING TO TELL THE GIRL'S THAT I WON'T TAKE THEIR PIC WITH THEIR DAD'S BIKE.WE HAVE RULES INSIDE THE CLUB THAT WE KEEP -I DID NOT BREAK ANY OF THEM.





NO WE HAVE NO 1 % ERS IN OUR CLUB ~

Ted took his patch off n he told them he doesn't want to be in a club that's going in a direction it's headed in ...I have a family to take care of .

Were they upset about pics of teen age girls or mention of someone who isn't a friend of the club? I don't get the connection of the two or why you mentioned both things. Was it the girls dad who got hurt? Regardless, if the president and VP of the club have no issue then there's no issue. At least as far as you're concerned. Sounds like philosophical differences between the club and someone else and that's not your issue. Also, if you have the support of the President and VP then it's not the club or it's direction that you have any problem with. Someone else does, not you.
