…Pencil-necked geek and anarchist Jeff ‘The Snowman’ Monson…
In the US, quick-thinking authorities have won another skirmish in the War on Terror. This time, by arresting a man for spray-painting the peace sign, the anarchy symbol, and the phrases “No war” and “No poverty” on multiple columns of a Gub’mint building.
Monson: ‘I’d Do It Again’
January 15, 2009
Former UFC heavyweight contender and professed anarchist Jeff Monson is now a wanted man in Washington state, but he doesn’t regret the spray-painted message he left on the state Capitol building denouncing the war in Iraq. The Olympia native has been charged with first-degree malicious mischief, a felony carrying a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine, according to The Olympian, which reported the story first on Wednesday. A warrant for Monson’s arrest was issued on Wednesday after the state spent $19,000 to remove the graffiti, said The Olympian. Monson, 37, told Sherdog.com on Thursday that he’d spray-painted the peace sign, the anarchy symbol, and the phrases “No war” and “No poverty” on multiple columns of the building on Nov. 26…

I see your Anarchist UFC and raise you Mike Tyson – Mao Tse Tung and Che Guevara tattoos –
Is that a red/black star on the left side of him? So he’s an anarcho-communist then?
What sports people have Leon Trotsky tattoos? The Mexican Glacier Climbing Team?
Mike is not a Maoist.
Jeff is mos def an anarchist.
“I said toothpick, not icepick!”
From Sky News (April 06):
After attending Mao’s mausoleum he told the Beijing News newspaper: “I felt really insignificant next to the remains of Chairman Mao.”
The boxer added that the visit had been a great honour.
He then bought several books on Mao before shouting “I love you” to onlookers outside the tomb.
His interest reportedly comes from reading about Mao while in jail for rape in the 1990s.
The boxer – once billed as ‘the baddest man on the planet’ – won his first world title when he was just 20, beating Trevor Berbick by a second round knockout.
He never recaptured his former glory after prison – infamously biting a chunk off Evander Holyfield’s ear during one bout.
Tyson’s pilgrimage to Beijing followed a visit to Shanghai to promote a new night club.
“He never recaptured his former glory after prison – infamously biting a chunk off Evander Holyfield’s ear during one bout.”
He would go down well in the Taiwanese parliament then.
>left a job as a mental-health counselor to pursue mixed-martial-arts fighting.
>he is a holder of Master’s and BA degrees in Psychology

Fuck this world is strange. I’ve never heard of this Monson chappie. We should call on him if the Aussie fash ever grow a pair.
He’s written a few things, and is actually a surprisingly articulate chap for a big old brawler.
@don: I was not pointing out that ‘big old brawlers’ tend less often to be intellectuals, but that intellectuals tend to be less interested than most in bashing the living shit out of another human.
If you’d post some Lynx on this feller it’d be much appreciated, doubt I’ll find the time to look myself.
I support him
