We tend to get constant pleasure from our readers' comments, which are usually that perfect mix of both thoughtful and enjoyably offensive. What's even more entertaining is when Hells Angels use SF Weekly's comment section to duke out some deep-rooted feuds.
The Angels' dustup started last week after we published a story about Ernesto Manuel Gonzalez, a member of a rival motorcycle club who was arrested on suspicion of shooting to death Jeffrey Pettigrew, aka Jethro, the president of Hells Angels San Jose chapter.
The comment section under this story took on a life of its own as Hells Angels and their detractors fired back and forth with impressive antipathy. Each comment roars like a throaty Hog. One thing we learned for sure: We would stay far away from a pissed-off Hells Angel.
Here's our top five favorite comments:
5. "The hells angels are an evil motorcycle cult not a gang or a club. MC stands for motorcycle cult. they are the army of Satan in the flesh here on earth to make trouble and inflict harm on others. they do satans dirty work for him here on earth. they are all working for the beast 666 Satan. sonny barger is the cult leader. they are all brainwashed and are under the spell of sonny barger and his santanic cult spell. they are a cult not a club or a gang. it goes much deeper than a club or a gang. they are the occult 666 of satan. this is the part the cops and the public do not get."
4. "more proof that constant angel crank-meth use causes anger and violence.
never trust a hells angels not to attack. a hippie saying from the
3. "I hate the HA. so im with you. they are just methed tweeker unsocial substance abuser ill mannered poor uneducated white trash on 2 wheels who are very insecure boys in a mans body who have an inferiority complex."
2. "The Hells Angles should change their top rocker to Hells Faggots...also they need to make a slight modification to their center patch by showing a cock inserted in the winged deathshead skull's mouth.The members who've killed for the club should change their killer's tab from Filthy Few to Filthy Faggot.These small changes will more accurately reflect who and what they truly are. When they are seen riding in packs with their amended name and cock-sucking deathshead patch, people will understand them better and can point at them and have a good laugh."
1. "The hells angels don't allow me to comment on their web pages. When they give me the chance I write it on their face with my fist."
