Protester Who Attacked WI Lawmaker Unrepentant: “He Deserved to Be Assaulted Like That”

Miles Kristan, the Madison protester ticketed for disorderly conduct after he allegedly poured beer on the heads of Republican lawmakers, refused to say during an interview with NBC’s Milwaukee affiliate whether he is, in fact, the person who did the deed.

“Are you the one responsible for the beer attack?” a reporter asked Kristan.

“Not answering those questions,” he replied.

But in a video posted on the YouTube account “TheBlueCheddar,” Kristan brags about pouring a beer on the heads of three Republican assemblymen. “I went to the Best Western last night and bought myself a Miller High Life, sat next to Represenatiave John Nygren, Robin Vos, Scott Suder. And had a friend come in who was filiming. And the bartender told him to stop filiming, and I see the security guy coming to kick me out. So I got up and went with the beer and–[Kristan mimics pouring beer]–all three Republicans”

“I would never use physical force, but he deserved to be assaulted like that,” Kristan said.


A guy threw a beer on me once because I was ejecting his buddy from a dance. His buddy went home. He went to jail.

If one of the lawmakers Kristan assaulted had punched him in the nose, he would be calling them thugs.

Hey Kristan, try throwing beer on some bikers or cops. I double dog dare you.

You can see his video confession here.

    After having just watched the fourth breathless “Solyndra” piece on cable TV, I guess I have to just give up and accept that this stupid, trumped up, pseudo-scandal has got the typically braindead press corps all hot and bothered and it’s not going away. There’s just no end to this nonsense.

      How dishonest is that? One thing I respect for example, about Malkin, or Somerby, is that they will attack crooked deals like this regardless of the party involved.

      She is a writer of some sort I believe. I am sorry she cannot follow a complex plot because she has a short attention span and is bored by it all. Maybe she should talk to someone who has investigated frauds. I will be happy to explain it to her if she can keep her wits about her that long.

          Her blog is how she makes her living, as I understand. Ergo, she has to keep the Bots coming back by brushing off anything complicated that may make The One look bad or jeopardizes her invitation to Yearly Kos.

      In the new blu-ray version of Star Wars, the scene is changed to the droids apologizing and turning themselves in. 🙂

      I guess the FBI is working for the Republican party now then. Oh wait, no, that must mean their all racists now. Yep, that’s the ticket.

      Somebody should go down for Solyndra. It’s too obvious.

    That’s your typical angry Tea Partier…oh, wait … never mind.

    Seriously, I thought the right was the eviiil side — why does it seem like it’s the left that has activists who pulls stupid aggressive stunts like this?

    He should be sued, actually he should be criminally charged, not so much for assault, but for stupidity. I can’t stand morons who make confession videos, post them on you tube, and then refuse to admit they did it. That only leaves two options, one, you’re a liar, or two, you’re trying to take credit for and steal bragging rights from somebody else. Either way, you suck.

    I notice that after the incident the guy ran like hell. It’s not very courageous to beer tag a Republican in a bar and then run away as fast as you can. What a weenie.

  5. Haruhi help us, can we left-leaning folks yank his Official Progressive Decoder Ring or vote this jackass off the island or something?
