A Whiskey Bar in Portland, Oregon, is offering a reward of “free whiskey for life,” if one of their patrons punches White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.
A photo of the the receipt was first tweeted by Forbes writer Maury Brown, who celebrated the call for violence. He has since deleted the tweet after it began to go viral.
The bar, called Paydirt, is now printing the offer on the bottom of their receipts.
Imagine the outrage if someone on the right solicited violence against anyone in the Obama administration, they would immediately be branded domestic right-wing terrorists. Somehow, seemingly endless calls for violence against the Trump administration are not only acceptable among the left, it is celebrated.
Located at 2724 NE Pacific, Paydirt previously donated a portion of their inauguration day sales to Planned Parenthood.
“Inauguration Day is not going to be easy. We’ll be donating a portion of ALL sales this Friday to Planned Parenthood. Come drink with us,” the bar advertised on their Twitter account.
On election night, the bar offered a free champagne toast to the “future Madame President.”
“Election Night at Paydirt: Free champagne toast to our future Madame President. And if that doesn’t happen? Whiskey!” Paydirt advertised.
The bar also featured a Trump pinata and a cocktail special that they named the “Chillary Clinton,” made with Bombay Sapphire, St. Germain, Blackberry Muir, Lemon, and Sugar.
The establishment frequently uses anti-Trump imagery in their advertisements, clearly unconcerned about alienating people with differing political views.
According to US law, threatening public officials other than the president is a Class C or D felony, usually carrying maximum penalties of 5 or 10 years under 18 U.S.C. § 875, 18 U.S.C. § 876 and other statutes. It is also against the law to solicit violence against public officials.
The email account listed on the Paydirt website was inactive when we reached out to the bar for comment. Phone calls to the establishment were not answered by the time of publishing.
UPDATE: Both the bar and it’s owner, Ezra Caraeff, have locked their Twitter accounts.
Caraeff, who also owns The Old Gold bar, appears to find the situation quite comical, however.
“Guess I’m going to have to open my next bar in Guantanamo Bay. Cons: Torture. Pros: Cuban Rum.” Caraeff tweeted on Sunday evening.
On Friday night, prior to the outrage over the receipts, Caraeff had also tweeted, “Nothing will turn you into a libertarian asshole faster than opening a business in the city of Portland right now.”
Caraeff ‘s Old Gold Bar also includes political messaging on their receipts. In February, the bar had “Is it Okay to Punch a Nazi? Yes.”
Caraeff quoted the above in a tweet and added an Emily Post quote which reads, “Etiquette is the science of living. It embraces everything. It is ethics. It is honor.”
The bar owner did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

President Trump Rejects Paying For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Private Security
The royal celebrities will foot the bill.
President Trump made it clear on a Sunday tweet that British royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have to pay for their own security costs upon moving full-time to the United States, clarifying that they wouldn’t receive federal security under an existing arrangement that covers British royals temporarily visiting the US.
I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 29, 2020
The royal celebrities have distanced themselves from the Queen, apparently viewing themselves as victims of relentless paparazzi and media attention.
Harry and Markle initially moved to Canada after resigning from the royal family, but they’ve recently moved to Hollywood just before the Canadian border was closed to nonessential travel due to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. The elitist couple apparently plans on reinventing themselves as American-style celebrities, and have hired a small army of media consultants and public relations agents to market their image.
When information of their move to Los Angeles became public knowledge, many began to speculate if they’d recieve taxpayer-funded security in a manner akin to British royals visiting the United States on official state vists. President Trump’s Sunday tweet appears to eliminate that possibility.
The thirteen colonies that became the United States rebelled against the yoke of the British monarchy for a reason. President Trump’s decision to cut off the wannabee celebrities from publicly-funded security is a deeply American decision. The UK’s monarchy is one of the wealthiest legacy institutions in the western world, and it would be absurd to imagine that it can’t afford to hire private security for the ‘former’ royals, who are set to fully renounce their royal obligations at the end of the month.
