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.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
