The Paydirt Bar has a history of posting messages to their various social channels. A tweet from the bar’s Twitter account in 2015 links to an Instagram post which reads: ” “Tonight’s whiskey pairing: ‘Thanksgiving Dinner Conversation With Your Racist Uncle About Donald Trump’ (a shot of Wild Turkey 101 and a cold tall boy of @olympia_beer) #paydirtbar #pdxdrinks #movingtocanada” Tonight’s whiskey pairing:”Thanksgiving Dinner Conversation With Your Racist Uncle About Donald … https: . — Paydirt (@paydirtpdx) November 25, 2015, Tonight’s whiskey pairing: ”Thanksgiving Dinner Conversation With Your Racist Uncle About Donald Trump” (a shot of Wild Turkey 101 and a cold tall boy of @olympia_beer) #paydirtbar #pdxdrinks #movingtocanada, A post shared by Paydirt (@paydirtbar) on Nov 25, 2015 at 2:30pm PST, Breitbart News reached out to the Paydirt Bar to ask why it is that they offer prizes for the assault of Steve Bannon and whether or not they had offered similar prizes for other political figures.
In response, a representative for the bar stated: The text is a series of comments that we leave at the bottom of our receipts. We change the receipts nearly daily and they touch on all sorts of politicians on both sides of the aisle, plus (mostly) our beloved Portland Trail Blazers. We’re surprised as anyone that these image went viral since it’s clearly a joke.
We went private on all our accounts since after this happened we were inundated with a series of very serious death threats. Lucas Nolan is a reporter for Breitbart News covering issues of free speech and online censorship. Follow him on Twitter @LucasNolan_ or email him at lnolan@breitbart.
