While Ann Coulter scores a knock-out in Berkeley, Isis Joy Buckwheat, goes after this reporter with the same tactics that the anarchist, Alley Valkyrie, used. After Stephanie Kesey and I got into a argument about making connections, Buckwheat demanded I just be banned. “Just ban him!” she croaked. And, I was unfriended by a Kezey who think they own the francise on LSD. I sent Isis a message, and got this reply…
“What is this in reference to ? I’m guessing you go around Facebook attacking people who think your a ducking nut job .
You fucking lunatic”
Not being old enough, Iris Joy Buckwheat says the Merry Prankster way of life is intergenerational.
“After about 15 acid test parties, Ken Kesey decided to hold a graduation ceremony. On Halloween night, 1966, he handed out diplomas. Mountain Girl, each member of the Grateful Dead and George Walker, were among the many who *passed the acid test.”
Iris and Ann are practicing Tribalism. Motorcycle gangs practice Tribalism. The graduation ceremony was aimed a creating a Tribe, verses people who had personal revelations, and rather than freely sharing their experiment, they become paranoid. Perhaps they are not one with the others because their trip was different. Best stay under the radar and let the new leaders establish the status quo.
The truth is Coulter had nothing to say, nor does Black Bloc. How about the Hell’s Angels? I have much to say. My family has excommunicated me, and, I have no friends.
My landlord in Sacramento paid my bus ticket to come back to Oregon. I told Sonny Barger’s son to tell his mother to stop selling drugs out the back of the garage. He was incredulous! No one gets to say that – and live!
“They’re coming for you Jon.”
What we see below is Sonny Barger reading a written agreement inspired by talks with Ken Kesey, to not attack the anti-war marchers, who were exercising their Freedom of Speech. Was there an acid-test involved? Is this where Stephanie Kesey thought I was going, being the Angels killed a man at Altamont, in what amounts to the ugliest scene in hippie history that looks very much like the attacks of Black Bloc in Berkeley.
I refuse to wear tie-dye!
By some accounts, the Hells Angels were hired as security by the management of the Rolling Stones, on the recommendation of the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane (who both had previously used the Angels for security at performances without incident), for $500 worth of beer.
Without uttering a word to students at the University of California, Berkeley, Ann Coulter on Wednesday made herself the latest cause célèbre in the rapidly escalating effort by conservatives to fight liberals on what was once the left’s moral high ground over free speech on campus.
Ms. Coulter, the acid-penned conservative writer, canceled a planned appearance on Thursday after the political organizations that invited her rescinded their support over fears of violence. “It’s a sad day for free speech,” she said.
But across the country, conservatives like her are eagerly throwing themselves into volatile situations like the one in Berkeley, emboldened by a backlash over what many Americans see as excessive political correctness, a president who has gleefully taken up their fight, and liberals they accuse of trying to censor any idea they disagree with.
The situation adds up to a striking reversal in the culture wars, with the left now often demanding that offensive content be excised from public discourse and those who promote it boycotted and shunned.
By some accounts, the Hells Angels were hired as security by the management of the Rolling Stones, on the recommendation of the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane (who both had previously used the Angels for security at performances without incident), for $500 worth of beer. This story has been denied by some parties who were directly involved. According to the road manager of the Rolling Stones’ 1969 US Tour Sam Cutler, “the only agreement there ever was … the Angels would make sure nobody tampered with the generators, but that was the extent of it. But there was no way ‘They’re going to be the police force’ or anything like that. That’s all bollocks.” The deal was made at a meeting including Cutler, Grateful Dead manager Rock Scully and Pete Knell, a member of the Hells Angels’ San Francisco chapter. According to Cutler, the arrangement was that all the bands were supposed to share the $500 beer cost, “[but] the person who paid it was me, and I never got it back, to this day.”
Hells Angels member Bill “Sweet William” Fritsch recalled this exchange he had with Cutler at a meeting prior to the concert, in which Cutler had asked them to provide security:
- “We don’t police things. We’re not a security force. We go to concerts to enjoy ourselves and have fun.”
- “Well, what about helping people out—you know, giving directions and things?”
- “Sure, we can do that.”
When Cutler asked how they would like to be paid, William replied, “we like beer.” In the documentary Gimme Shelter, Sonny Barger states that the Hells Angels were not interested in policing the event, and that organizers had told him that the Angels would be required to do little more than sit on the edge of the stage, drink beer and make sure there weren’t any murders or rapes occurring. Other accounts[who?] also state that the initial arrangement was for the Hells Angels to watch over the equipment, but that Cutler later moved them, and their beer, near the stage to placate them or to protect the stage.
In 2009, Cutler explained his decision to use the Angels. “I was talking with them, because I was interested in the security of my band—everyone’s security, for that matter. In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. They were the only people who were strong and together. [They had to protect the stage] because it was descending into absolute chaos. Who was going to stop it?” Grateful Dead manager Rock Scully said that if the Angels hadn’t been on the stage, “that whole crowd could have easily passed out, and rolled down onto the stage. There was no barrier.”
