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.

Jussie Smollett Charged By Special Prosecutor For Chicago Hate Hoax
Smollett won’t get off the hook after all.
Chicago actor Jussie Smollett was charged by a Cook County special prosecutor with six counts of disorderly conduct related to lying to the police on Tuesday. Dan Webb, a former U.S attorney appointed by Judge Michael Toomin, announced the charges as the result of a grand jury investigation.
Smollett had appeared to escape criminal repercussions for a hoax he orchestrated of January 2019, in which he paid two Nigerian brothers to play the role of Trump supporters and “attack” him in a fake racially charged event. Smollett was originally charged by prosecutors with filing a fake police report, but evaded punishment when a suspect district attorney ordered the charges dropped on the basis of Smollett’s supposed community service.
But he won’t use his ‘get out of jail free’ card after all. Webb was appointed by Judge Toomin six months ago to investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspicious dropping of Smollett’s charges. In a statement, the special prosecutor explained his decision to file new criminal charges against Smollett for his orchestration of the hoax.
““The grand jury’s investigation revealed that Jussie Smollett planned and participated in a staged hate crime attack, and thereafter made numerous false statements to Chicago Police Department officers on multiple occasions, reporting a heinous hate crime that he, in fact, knew had not occurred.”
A statement from Smollett’s lawyers in light of the new criminal charges goes to show the former Empire actor isn’t thrilled that he’s going back to court to face accountability for his dishonest publicity stunt.
Smollett is set to appear in a Cook County courthouse on February 24th.
