Gateway Pundit Blogger Who Pulled Gun on Protesters Is Banned From Portland College Campuses

Far right blogger and Gateway Pundit contributor Michael Strickland, arrested last week for pulling a gun on demonstrators in Portand and charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of a firearm, has now been banned from Portland college campuses.

Michael Strickland, the man charged with waving a gun at protesters last week at a Don’t Shoot PDX march, has been banned from Portland State and Portland Community College’s campuses.

The two schools confirmed Wednesday that Strickland will not be allowed to set foot on campus if and when he is released from custody. Portland State is banning Strickland for two years. PCC’s ban is indefinite, but Strickland could appeal the decision. Both schools informed Strickland of the ban last week.

The 36-year-old is in jail and faces one count of menacing, two counts of unlawful use of a firearm and second degree disorderly conduct. Strickland, who is being held on $250,000 bail, is due in court again Monday.

Strickland frequented these Oregon campuses to create content for his “Laughing at Liberals” blog and YouTube account, and was well-known as a right wing James O’Keefe wanna-be.

Kate Chester, PCC spokeswoman, said Strickland was increasingly seen on the college’s various campuses. He attended several sessions in April during PCC’s Whiteness History Month and “made the rounds,” appearing at the Southeast, Cascade and Sylvania campuses to film for his blog.

The college didn’t have any significant issues with Strickland at those events, Chester said, but he was routinely “pushing buttons” and made his presence known at certain speeches and published heavily edited videos from the events that raised eyebrows on campus.

Chester said some Whiteness History participants attempted to block Strickland’s view at sessions. “He got a little bit squirrely, but he didn’t pull a gun or anything like that,” Chester said.

We can now expect a lot of whining about “right wing viewpoints being censored” from the usual suspects.

Note that Strickland came to this demonstration with a loaded Glock pistol and five loaded magazines of ammunition. He was equipped to kill a lot of people.

You know the thing is that it’s not even real evangelical fundamentalism. A true Christian would deeply be concerned about the plight of the poor. What the GOP has going for it is a bizarro marriage of the worst of religion and the worst of Ayn Rand’s writings. I told my friend who has wingnut beliefs that you cannot objectively complain to me about the government infringing on individual rights when you support the government enforcing who goes to what bathroom. He didn’t get it though. He just has a weird anti-transgender fixation and that’s enough for him to justify anti-transgendered policies.

I always liked Sullivan’s explanation that conservativism, properly understood and practiced, was really more of a disposition than an ideology. More of a sense that change should mostly be gradual and with an eye toward addressing unforeseen consequences when they present themselves. Much of (post)modern conservativism is really reactionarism, I think. And dangerous because it seeks to restore a world that didn’t truly exist and to the extent it did was obviously less free than today

The Ghost of a Flea  Jul 13, 2016 • 6:52:50pm

Conservatism is only as meaningful as the set of institutions and traditions that the individual or party view as critical to continuity of society.

What we should all pause and consider is…what is that set for the current “conservative” party?

Because it seems to me that they have carefully taken their entirely new, entirely reactionary stances and re-written the past to suit them—and they keep doing it! The way they bent and twisted their “principles” to echo Trump’s positions being the most glaring example.

What we’re facing is not “conservatism” it’s selfishness and nihilism packaged as tradition so as to justify its authoritarian nature.

Goldwater is why I can’t just say “Well it’s generational.”. This is a man who was old enough to be Ted Cruz’s grandfather and was considerably more socially progressive than he was. The problem with conservatism these days is individual rights is selective bs. They like to talk about how they’re for individual rights but they’re actually for individuals denying other individuals rights i.e. birth control, the right to use the bathroom of their choice, etc. Conservatism as it currently exists in this country is a big government sham masquerading as a philosophy that values individual rights and limtied govenrment.

But as already said what we see today presented as conservatism is definitely more reactionary than conservative to be fair to actual conservatives.

I did like my delegate from my hometown who was my former mayor. It really seems to me that the GOP has grown worse as the years go by. I grew up with John Warner as a Senator. Today the GOP nominates people like Ed Gillespie for that office.

Political conservatism was first clearly stated as a political program in the immediate aftermath of the French revolution. It had its uses then, mainly as a check on the excesses of nuts like the Jacobins.

Even if we set aside the total corruption of US conservatism by bigots, there is no apparent need for such a brake to slow down progress in the US in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Sullivan was plenty reactionary when he said this about those of us who opposed the war in Iraq:

“The middle part of the country—the great red zone that voted for Bush—is clearly ready for war. The decadent left in its enclaves on the coasts is not dead—and may well mount a fifth column.”

The thing that always amused me about conservatives like that put down the coasts of the country is that almost all of them actually live and work on the coasts. Honestly, I’ve always loathed that aspect of conservatism that is to say the putting down one part of the country as not really being American because they hate how it votes. I mean as much as I hate how the wingnutty parts of the country votes, they’re still Americans.

I don’t see it being Perez though. I think Clinton would prefer someone with elected experience but then again they were vetting the admrial so I dunno. I think Perez could be someone that she has in mind for a promotion to a more major cabinet department if she’s elected POTUS.

I was not aware that Sullivan had been so offensive about opponents of the Iraq war disaster. Sullivan is gay, so he really shouldn’t be singing the praises of “the great red zone that voted for Bush”, since that same great red zone would mostly be pleased to see Sullivan drawn and quartered.

Typical Log Cabin Republican. He’s well off and living in a city that allows him to be openly gay so it’s easy-peasy and I should get to keep my money and women shouldn’t be allowed to make those kind of choices.

Tim Scott delivered a powerful and deeply personal speech from the Senate floor on Wednesday …

The South Carolina senator spoke of multiple instances in which he felt he had been unfairly targeted by police because of the color of his skin, including one encounter with the U.S. Capitol Police. Scott, who is black, said that as recently as last year he was stopped by a Capitol Police officer who did not recognize him as a senator even though he was wearing his member’s pin.

“The pin, I know. You, I don’t,” Scott recalled the officer saying with “a little attitude.” Scott said the tone of the encounter suggested that the officer believed he was impersonating a senator.

[…]

Scott said that in the course of one year as an elected official, he was stopped seven times by law enforcement. And while in some of those instances he was speeding, Scott said the “vast majority” of those encounters were the result of “nothing more than driving a new car in the wrong neighborhood or some other reason just as trivial.”

[…]
During his speech, Scott also shared the story of a former staffer of his who drove a Chrysler 300, “a nice car without any question, but not a Ferrari.” The staffer wound up selling that car out of frustration after being pulled over too often in Washington, D.C., “for absolutely no reason other than for driving a nice car.” He told a similar story of his brother, a command sergeant major in the U.S. Army, who was pulled over by an officer suspicious that the car Scott’s brother was driving was stolen because it was a Volvo.

How long will this last? Not long. Scott can say he experiences what the rest of us blacks experience in regard to racism and discriminatory policing, but when it’s time to vote on these issues, he’s going to vote the way McConnell tells him to vote, and this is what makes his comments a waste of time. The man values his seat in Congress more than he values doing what he knows is right.

Bingo. There is no way that Senator Scott can be blind to the racism and racist-enabling endemic to the Republican party.

It is difficult to see how his remaining in the Republican party is helpful.

I often wonder just how one can vote for/with a party that makes it plain that most of its members don’t take your rights, or even your humanity, seriously. I bluntly told a friend of mine who’s gay and a Republican that they don’t want him, that they’ve made it abundantly clear what they think of him. He didn’t unfriend me but he hasn’t “talked” to me since (on FB).

That’s honestly how I feel on the autistic spectrum. I mean granted Republicans don’t scapegoat us anywhere close to how they do women, African-Americans, and gays but they repeatedly cut programs that make life easier for those of us on the spectrum. There’s unfortunately a lot of IGMFY in the community though which is why I have seen many MRA types. I used to post on Asperger’s group on Facebook but so many of the people there were dicks.

He’d definitely get the point of my question, and I’d like to see him squirm as he contorted himself into a pretzel trying to answer it. I think he owes Texans and the rest of us an answer to this question. Every d*mn time the president issues an EO or a court rules against Texas, he files another useless, vindictive, and expensive lawsuit. He, like his GOP buddies in Congress, don’t believe in governing according to democratic principles, they believe in governing using authoritarian principles.

My two year old niece is more mature than these so called adults. I actually saw one person say that Clinton should accept the nomination and then step aside? Really, just step aside and hand the nomination to a man who didn’t even win the nomination. The sense of entitlement that I see from many self fancied progressives really pisses me off. Clinton won the nomination fair and square. Crying that it was rigged against Bernie doesn’t make it so and it doesn’t change the fact that Bernie didn’t know how to build a base that could win a nomination.

They just can’t accept the fact that there are people out there who chose Clinton over Sanders out of free will and because they really felt that she was the better choice. They really are unhinged. Not every person who supported Sanders mind you but these types who think that Bernie is somehow entitled more than what he’s getting.

This one uses a riff on a enchilada red sauce - really just beef broth, tomato sauce, and taco seasoning with a garlic and butter and flour mix. I throw a little more taco seasoning in with the ground bison (it calls for ground sirloin in the original recipe) and some onions. It’s tasty and fast and low calorie for what it is - a quarter of the pie is ~375 calories.

The gaucamole slaw is just an avocado mashed with lime juice and salt, add a little bit of sour cream. Mix that up to something vaguely creamy and then toss cabbage slaw with it. A nice clean counterpart to the flavors in the casserole.

Cleveland’s police chief said Wednesday he would prefer that people not bring firearms to the Republican National Convention that kicks off next week — but said it is legal to do so.

“It’s the law in this state and as police chief, I’m bound to uphold the law in this state,” Police Chief Calvin Williams said at a news conference Tuesday.

“Well actual militia-heads would do well to show up there to guard the place.”

“That’s mighty white of him.”

“Gonna be a security nightmare with all the race-baiting scum that is going TO BE PAID to show up and start trouble.”

re: #215 HappyWarrior

I was just ready to say I had a better opinion of Tebow than I had in the past. I never hated him like some people did. The hype surrounding him and that I had to because he was a “Good Christian”? Yes but not him himself. Kind of wish Brady would show his mug, I enjoy hating him actually.

I’m a Florida Gator. I love Tim Tebow for what he did on the field and for the community. He was strong. His Christian belief was NEVER an issue when he was in college. (OK, he wore the John 3:16 eye tape, no biggie to me) It only became his whole persona when he went pro. And I really felt that was press-driven. Not cool.

But last straw is trump. No respect for anyone who goes on that stage.

As I’ve said before, without a code duello, it’s not an armed “society”, it’s just a bunch of goobers with guns shooting each other.

“Honor” and other social mores that supposedly confine retaliatory violence tend to…not do that. Because everybody knows the rules, but then applies the “but this time, it’s different” and “we have to respond or seem weak.” What starts as individual fights become feuds, grudges mount over time, and violence occurs in flares that outpace the slow process of bringing together authority figures to compromise.

Basically, Romeo and Juliet. Or the Hatfield/McCoy mess. Or your average month in the tribal regions of Pakistan.

I never hated him. Some people I know actually hated him because of the Christian stuff which was fmeh since by all accounts he was a good teammate but as you say stepping on that stage, agh.

“Honor” such a loaded word. Always cringe a bit when it’s used to justify violence or some shit like that.

More hearings have been held for Benghazi than 9/11.

More taxpayer money spent, too. It’s been a fishing expedition the whole time. The Tea Party Republicans in Congress call Obama a n***** behind closed doors, guaranteed.

Worst case prediction for Cleveland:

120 dead
750 injured
5000 arrests
$2.5 bln. property damage

Best case:
Trump is nominated peacefully.

Pretty sorry turn of events any way you look at it.

re: #167 EPR-radar

Bingo. There is no way that Senator Scott can be blind to the racism and racist-enabling endemic to the Republican party.

It is difficult to see how his remaining in the Republican party is helpful.

Tim Scott is for Tim Scott. He believes you can “think your way out of poverty,” is all for voter ID laws, against same-sex marriage, wants to privatize Social Security, opposes any gun restrictions, and is about the most non-responsive legislator I know of. When he was my Rep, even if you went to his office in person and provided staff with contact information, he would not even send a boilerplate email in response.

There’s only one Jean-Luc Picard, and it’s Patrick Stewart. I didn’t think I’d like Chris Pine as James Tiberius Kirk in the new Star Trek movies, but I do. He seems to be growing into the role.

re: #182 Stanley Sea

I watched all 16 minutes.

Imagine a fucking database of all these encounters.

You are stronger than I am. Tim Scott skeevs me out—every time I’ve been in the same room with him, I cannot wait to get away and breathe fresh air. At one breakfast when he was speaking, he stood right next to where I was sitting and it was all I could do not to run screaming from the room.

(But that’s just me—ymmv)

Yeah, neither solution is good. I’d rather see an unarmed society. It’s just that people who use that Heinlein quote don’t know what they’re advocating. The society in Beyond This Horizon had a dueling code that was rigidly enforced, and where anyone, whether because of age, infirmity, or general disinclination, could wear a Peace brassard (armband) and opt out of it. Of course it was 1939, so women carrying guns was considered unconventional….

Freepers cheer open carry at GOP convention (be careful what you wish for):
Police Will Abide by Ohio’s Open Carry Gun Laws at Convention

My fair state is usually in a tie with Mississippi for atavistic BS. Even we don’t have open carry, and carrying any piece at a demonstration is specifically forbidden. Probably made Bull Connor sleep a little sounder.
