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.
Student Government Impeaches Pro-Trump Latina Student Senator for Her Opposition to Illegal Immigration
Free Speech Continues to Die at American Universities
A Latina student at Loyola Marymount University was impeached for simply being against illegal immigration. Stephanie Martinez is the student government Senator for diversity and inclusion.
Her pro-Trump views have made her an easy target for the PC enforcers at her university. The College Fix reported that Martinez was subject to an impeachment on the night of October 11, 2020 by her colleagues at the Associated Students of Loyola Marymount University (ASLMU). The impeachment trial took three hours.
The impeachment proceedings kicked off last Spring following the discovery of several tweets coming from Martinez in which she voiced her opposition to illegal immigration.
A week ago, student Senator Camille Orozco submitted a motion contending that Martinize violated Article 8 of the student bylaws, which stipulates “conduct that severely damages the integrity or authority of ASLMU or the office held by the individual in question.”
In her opening statement, Orozco made the case that Martinez’s impeachment did not infringe on her right to free speech and instead dealt with “conduct which has severely damaged the integrity, or authority of ASLMU or the office held by Senator Martinez.”
She made the assertion that Martinez’s remarks hurt the relationship between Associated Students of Loyola Marymount University and pro-mass migration groups at the university such as First To Go and The Learning Community.
Martinez defended herself by saying that “despite what was stated, that this is not about free speech or political identity, I argue that this is not the case.”
The impeachment case against me was brought forward as a result of the Loyolan article and subsequent petition in response to my creation of the Students for Trump Instagram page.
The student government’s constitution outlines how no officer or member of the student government can face discrimination for their political affiliations.
However, two ASLMU officers took an anti-free speech approach to this matter. Chief Programming Officer Brion Dennis and Director of Free Speech & Expression Robyn De Leon backed up Orozco’s case against Martinez.
De Leon was of the opinion that Martinez’s tweets were not subject to free speech protections due to how they were “very alienating of unrepresented and marginalized communities. She cited Martinez’s usage of the term “illegal alien” as for why her speech should not merit First amendment protections.
Phillip Nieto of the College Fix provided the following background information for De Leon:
De Leon serves in the ASLMU cabinet while moonlighting as a writer for Agency LMU, a progressive LMU student news blog. She was also a co-author of the original article that dug up Martinez’s old tweets.
Scott Meyers, vice president of LMU College Republicans, came to Martinez’s defense and said during his testimony that, “I think a lot of what conservatives stand for is freedom of speech, and I believe that this is entirely a free speech issue.”
In her closing argument, Martinez described the trial as a “sham.” She viewed it as “a kangaroo court and conservative students on campus are furious.” She ended her defense by posing the following question:
So I want to ask you, how will you represent conservative students on campus?
The senate ended up voting 18-1 for impeachment. 2 members abstained from the vote.
A number of conservative students at the LMU campus started a Change.org petition in response to this impeachment proceeding in order to “hold ASLMU accountable for false impeachment.” So far, over 300 people have signed on to the petition.
With how radicalized universities are becoming these days, it’s probably best that right wingers cpt for trade schools or universities that cater to conservatives, unless they are pursuing STEM or other hard skills.
