Photo of the Day: Monson vs. The Man


(Image courtesy of drunkatdnc.blogspot.com via “overEZ” on the UG. Click for larger version.)

Noted anarchist and former UFC fighter Jeff Monson stares down several members of the St. Paul riot police during the Republican National Convention. As the story goes, Monson and others were trying to block Republican delegates from entering the convention; he was detained but not arrested. Now if someone could explain why he has a tattoo of Bubbles on his back, that would be very helpful…

The stand off story is B.S.! This photo is from when Jeff did a seminar for the local police. If you know anything about the police, riots or stand offs you can tell just by looking at the phot nothing is going on here. On another not Jeff has a warrant out for his arrest for spay painting Anarchy symbols on the Washington state capital bulding and while hiding out in another state he was arrested for DV and other damage to property crimes when one of his girlfriends found out about all his wives and other girlfriends. .

Ah good ole Monson ..... a typical radical trying to suppress the views of everyone who doesn't think like them. Thank goodness that clown is out of the UFC.

Oh and Jeffy..... a few tatoos and years of Danabol use simply aren't gonna stop a cop's bullet bro.

humptydumpty is as much of an idiot as Monson is.... to attack me, and to ignore Monson's conduct is the mark of a true coward and buffoon. Go away boy, you bother me.

uh... OK.

@ PoliSci fan - That is actually a very good point. He is sort of a walking contradiction.

Fuck tha police

Interestingly enough, on the theoritical political spectrum the Right is traditionally associated with small government, the extreme right being Anarchy (lack of a government). The Left is associated with big government, the far left being a Communist state (note that I did *not* say a totalitarian state).

In practice though, anarchy is usually associated with the left after the policies of the recent US administration didn't really go along with the traditional doctrine of the right. Oh well, what can you do?

So, is Monson extreme right or extreme left?
To: To LOL @ You- September 9, 2008 at 5:31 pm
We know, cause you are too busy ranting about your beliefs online.
To LOL @ You- September 9, 2008 at 5:23 pm
Standing up for what he believes in... LOL. I seriously doubt he has a clue what he believes in. And if you really need me to tell you why I won't go up to him and tell him he's a tool, you're a bigger idiot than your post implied.

A person wanting to prevent people from expressing their views. Telling officers he would resist arrest. That ain't right, I don't care who it is. Just because you are a UFC fighter does not give you the excuse to act like that.

LOL @ Monson trying to block people's right to assemble.
humptydumpty- September 9, 2008 at 3:11 pm
wow that emptyhandkiller sure does sound tufffff. i bet he could take monson and matt hughes in internet fighting. if he could take his wiener out of his hands for a minute he might even use his supertoughguy karate. hai ya!!!
emptyhandkiller- September 9, 2008 at 1:34 pm
Monson is an IDIOT. To stand there like an escapee from a freak show is moronic. "Preventing people from entering the Republican convention"?? How would you pussies squeal if he was preventing you from going to the "Oprah Show"? I wish the police would have given him his chance to leave, and then tasered that tatooed 'roid raging dimwit. Maybe next time, Jeff.... I hope I am there to watch....
bj o'rourke- September 9, 2008 at 1:20 pm
yeah, bitches. matt hughes is out there hunting crocodiles with his bare hands and talking about creationism armed with nothing but the bible. he puts it on the line everyday. he doesn't need an education and he doesn't sit around all day acting tough and talking smack on the internets. he got corn to bail, sheep to milk and s**t.
LOL @ you- September 9, 2008 at 12:13 pm
@ anoymous/carpetmucher,

stop ranting. you are a tool. The guy stood up for what he belives in, while you're mad at him and beating your keyboard about it. WHY don't you walk up to him and tell him that he is a tool? Opininons are like a-holes, everyone has one, but Monson unlike you has balls to stand up for his. And your little impression of him saying "I am really cool beceause I'm all tatted up and I 'Defy the establishment" just proves that you're a moron who's putting words in peoples mouths.

@ Y Says -

He IS a tool for all of the reasons you just described. He is swept up in the "I'm really cool because I'm all tatted up and I 'Defy the establishment' just because I can" bull shit. He doesn't really have a clue how things work and obviously still believes that a pre cold war era communist society is the way to go (please refer to any former Soviet state's economical system as evidence of how well that worked!) That is the DEFINITIVE tool. Now go read something other than MMA sites. (My first recommendation for you would be The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith, (Followed immediately by P.J. O'Rourke on the Wealth of Nations, so you could actually understand it), then pass them along to that douche Monson. Rant over.

go monson!!! my opinion of you has increased!!! there are too many rednecks in the MMA and the GOP full of them.

What a fuck head.
Markdog- September 9, 2008 at 9:41 am
I'm too fucking stoned! I had Monson confused with the wrong guy. The capitalism piece threw me off. I fucked up. I better slow down. I'm posting to quickly.

Jeff Monson wants to live in a world where there is no governing body and each individual has absolute liberty. Thank God we don't live in a country where Jeff Monson can intimidate us from doing whatever we fucking please - like entering a convention - without 12 policemen having something to say about it.

The guy is a fucking hypocrite. On the first day of an anarchist society in the United States, see if Jeff Monson lets you and a friend have a football catch in what was once his privately-owned backyard and see if he doesn't come outside and try to chase you off screaming, "Get off my fucking property!"

Hypocrite loser asshole.
Markdog- September 9, 2008 at 9:30 am
Here is my real theory. Out of the three power puff girls, of course, Monson picked the one with blonde hair and blue eyes. The other two have brown and black hair. Monson has a daughter, Michaela, and I bet she either resembled Bubbles as a child or something like that. That's what I think, but I'm usually wrong so "don't quote me boy cuz I ain't said shit."

WAR MONSON! I don't think that was the skinny college kid those cops were expecting. I like to see left wing mma fighters like (Monson and Danzig) speaking up for themselves, it balances all the right wing crap that we get all the time from creationists (Franklin, though to his credit he never really preaches in the octagon), rah rah gun Americans (Lindland/Hughes etc), homophobes (Lesnar) and general good ole boy personnas alot of fighters seem to represent.

@Carpetmuncher

a tool is someone who does what they're told without questioning. Someone who works on someone else's behalf willingly. A mindless drone.

I'm pretty sure Monson (who has a masters in psychology) is well aware of his own intentions & is doing it of his own volition & beliefs. That's the polar opposite of a tool.

you tool.

dude, he probably got the Bubbles tat just to see if anyone would have the stones to come up and ask him why the hell he has a powerpuff girl inked on his shoulder.
that said... i'm not gonna ask him.
