Douche of the Week: Jesse Ventura

By
Updated: July 24, 2013

 

Editor’s note: With the recent news of Mr. Ventura’s lawsuit against Chris Kyle’s widow moving forward in court, we felt it necessary to republish this story (originally posted on June 4, 2013) because, well, he’s still a giant douche and we don’t want anyone to forget that. 

By Mr. Twisted

“Bunch of slack-jawed faggots around here.”

That classic line from the movie Predator stands out for many guys as being the quintessential Jesse Ventura—an actual Vet who made it to a big budget Hollywood movie without losing the ability to insult his fellow man like any seasoned enlisted man would. Men all around the country said, “hey, that guy is pretty bad ass!”

Then that guy went on to become governor of Minnesota, and a bunch of dudes all around the country said, “hey, you mean that guy from Predator is a governor? That’s bad ass!”

Unfortunately, that cool line from the mini-gun wielding character named Blaine was basically the only worthwhile thing that Jesse Ventura ever contributed to society.

Last week Ventura made headlines (something he’s clearly aching to do to find relevancy) by suing the wife of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle for the money she has profited from her deceased husband’s book.

And yes, it’s as bad as it sounds.

But we’ll get back to that in a minute.

I'm elite! Seriously! Guys, c'mon! I'm super elite!

I’m elite! Seriously! Guys, c’mon! I’m super elite!

The story that Ventura (real name: James George Janos) has always passed off about himself is that he was a SEAL in Vietnam. Other SEALs have claimed that this is not true, as Ventura was a UDT (Underwater Demolition Team) member, and declined the opportunity for SEAL training. Ventura has since claimed that he always told people he was a UDT member, but then made the statement that “today we refer to all of us as SEALs; that’s all it is.”

He served honorably in Vietnam, but has—as appears to be the case, at least—blurred the lines of truth as to what he actually was or did.

Jesse Ventura

Vote for me!

After leaving the Navy, Jesse “The Body” Ventura got into pro wrestling and made quite a name for himself doing lots of steroids, jumping off the high ropes, and fake-punching dudes in make-up for over ten years. He would later become a commentator for the World Wrestling Federation, giving play-by-play for other dudes in make-up bitch-slapping one another.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

At the end of his wrestling career, Ventura began transitioning into acting. After Predator and The Running Man, he went on to star in such classics as Thunderground, Abraxas: Guardian of the Universe, and Tagteam—all of which were…something. Who knows?

In 1998, the politically-savvy Frogman used this ground-breaking technology known as “the internet” to capture enough grass-roots voters to become the governor of Minnesota, an office he held from 1999 to 2003. He decided not to run for reelection because, well, politics is hard, dammit!

But he didn’t rule out a run for the White House in the future. In 2008, ol’ Jesse spoke at a Ron Paul rally, organized by Campaign for Liberty. By the end of the event, both camps thought he was a complete joke.

In the last several years, Ventura has managed to capture a very small amount of spotlight for his television show Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, on which he talks about the guy on the grassy knoll, FEMA death camps, and the dreaded Fifth Column (you know who you are!).

That all brings us to the beginning of 2012, when Chris Kyle, U.S. Navy SEAL, began promoting his book American Sniper, which profiles Chris and his tours in Iraq as a sniper. While on a radio show talking about the book, a caller asked Kyle if the rumor was true that he had knocked Ventura out in a bar fight. Kyle confirmed the story and said that Ventura had been loudly disrespectful at the wake of a fallen SEAL and had, after being asked to tone it down, told Kyle that SEALs “deserved to lose a few guys.” The knuckle sandwich followed and “the Body” crumpled.

Ventura has claimed that this story is false and that it never happened, and filed a defamation suit against Chris Kyle. Sadly, on February 2 of this year, Kyle was murdered at a shooting range.

But that hasn’t stopped Ventura, who has added Kyle’s widow to the lawsuit because he thinks that Kyle’s estate shouldn’t profit from the damage done to the former governor’s reputation.

Also, he is continuing the suit because he is a world-class douchebag who wants to secure a special place in hell.

What kind of low-life piece of garbage-sucking mongrel does one have to be to make this seem like a rational course of action?

Stop and consider something: let’s suppose, just for a moment, that Ventura is right in this story—that the knock-out never happened and that Kyle was lying. So what? Did Ventura’s already-weak book sales get even weaker? Did his meager audience of overgrown basement dwellers dwindle even further? Did it ruin his chances of being in Expendables 3?

Now stop and consider something else: what would Chris Kyle possibly have to gain by making the story up? The book was already destined to be a bestseller, he was a national hero, and Ventura was/is a washed up has-been. Telling a story about some loon who mouthed off in a bar and got smacked for it does not increase book sales or guarantee movie rights. There was no financial gain for Kyle in that regard.

Here are the facts: Ventura’s career in acting tanked long ago. He’s had more than one failed television show. He quit being governor after promising the world and…not delivering, mostly because he really didn’t understand how politics works. He has made rash claims about 9/11 and then changed his tune, and gone from one extreme to another—and back again—on his own religious beliefs within a fairly short period time, all while mocking those who don’t think the way he does (which is still unclear). In other words, “stalwart of consistency” is not a term you will hear associated with Jesse Ventura.

Kyle, on the other hand, was by all accounts a tremendous warrior who helped his brothers in arms. Overseas, he provided invaluable over-watch for his men by becoming a true force-multiplier. Upon his return—and after leaving the service—he continued to serve his comrades by creating a charity that aided wounded Veterans who were struggling to reintegrate into society. sniper-chris-kyle

Ventura, in filing a lawsuit against the Kyle estate, is announcing that he is not only a Heavyweight Champion of Douchebags, but also is intent on taking money away from pro-Veteran causes and charities (all for something that multiple eye witnesses say did in fact happen). FITCO Cares foundation, which was started by Kyle, helps U.S. war Vets who are having trouble on the home front. Additionally, Kyle stated before his death that proceeds from his book were being given mostly to families of those he was unable to save in combat.

I guess Ventura’s ever-glowing reputation as a steroid-abusing, irrational, leotard-wearing, failed politician is more important than those causes…

Oh, and this just in, The Body-Douche is floating rumors out now about running for President in 2016. I didn’t think this guy could get any more ridiculous, but here we are. It’s going to be tough to top this level of douchebaggery.

    This is so far up on the scale of douchebaggery that it needs special treatment. I’m thinking that a special episode of The Damn Few is called for to help spread the word. Sealy and the gang need to put this twat-waffle in his place. He deserves to be punched in the face again.

      Here is one old, disabled, sailor that would happily kick this failed excuse for a douche, (and he is a horrible insult to douches), lying ass. He miserable waste-of-flesh and should have long ago been removed from the public eye – if not from the gene pool. If he sees this, feel free to release my info to him and I’ll repeat this to his face on camera… just before I put down my cane and stomp a mud hole in his ass and then walk it dry.

    Just when we thought Bill Maher was a sure bet for Douche of the Century, suddenly there’s another major contender. I would ask how Janos/Ventura/Shitbag can face himself in the mirror after pulling this shit, but judging from his picture I don’t think he’s seen his own reflection in a LONG time.

      To wipe my ass with Ventura’s face would severely demean my crap. And I’m not sure that the word “douchebag” is sufficient here; I agree with many people in their assessment that this may be hard to top. Perhaps it’s time to coin a new term, for this new level of (insert new term here)?

    Jesse was a good governor. Probably the highest level of honor and integrity he ever exhibited. After I met him I realized his ego was bigger than one might have imagined. Now, I have to shake my head and wonder WTF is he thinking? I am certain he is going to get some more smack down on his ego before this is over. And rightly so. JTB Ventura has become JT Douchebag Ventura.

    As always a 1st class write up.. He is a douche.. I chatted with Chris at the shot show in Jan. I will say this about him . He was a 1st class guy and no BS about him. So when it come down to it I know he floored mister hero in his own minds ass.. at the end of the day if he keeps messing with Chis’s family he is going to end up getting his ass handed to him again.. in court and by some concerned vets..

    The lawsuit is doomed to failure. There were several civilian and SEAL witnesses to the fight. One SEAL stated that several of the guys were ready to beat Ventura’s ass, but Kyle pulled the trigger first! Ventura has always colored his past, implying he was a SEAL, while never outright stating it. A lie of omission is still a LIE. He has zero integrity or honor. I hope that the NAVSPECWAR fraternity ostracizes his ass from now on. He gets my vote for Douche of the Century.

    Mr. Ventura needs a high five. In the face. With Chris Kyle’s truck at 100mph. We can’t let this piece of shit hurt Mrs. Kyle. She’s part of our veteran family, and Ventura just erased any service he gave to the country by even thinking of suing her.

    As I commented on Ranger Up’s FB page, I’m from MN and proud to say I didn’t vote for him when he ran for governor. He’s a big blowhard. His entire time in office was spent whining about the media picking on him. He needs to STFU and go away.

    The widow needs to counter-sue if she hasn’t already. If it went down like Chris Kyle wrote about, there are all the witnesses needed to disprove Ventura’s claim. Which is why the slimy scumbag is going to drop it before it ever gets to court, which he can. He can make the whole thing turn into a publicity stunt for him, unless she drags him into court.

    Note: I am not a lawyer but have retained far too many in my lifetime.

    Nothing like spinning a story and throwing in words such as douchebag, douchebaggery and … oh yea Scumbag.
    The one thing I hate and is thrown out as fraud is when someone say things like:
    Stop and consider something: let’s suppose, just for a moment, that Ventura is right in this story—that the knock-out never happened and that Kyle was lying. So what? Did Ventura’s already-weak book sales get even weaker? Did his meager audience of overgrown basement dwellers dwindle even further? Did it ruin his chances of being in Expendables 3?
    When this paragraph was written you left it open to say ….. Hey the what I am telling you could be just BS and the rest could be as well.
    Your just attracting those who can’t think for themselves is the way I see it.

    I think Kyle is a true American hero! What he did and the sacrifices he made are clear!! This old shit bag Ventura has never been anything else than a loud mouth shit bag!( typical wrestler) . The fact that Ventura also never carried the title of a seal , yet leads the entire world to believe that . Only further shows his lack of integrity!!
    Also him talking shit at a fallen seals wake ! He is lucky he is still above ground! He needs to stick his buzzard , haggard face in the fucking sand and leave it there!! To bad Kyle didn’t have a chance to vaporize his head at a 1000 plus yards!! Ventura needs to disapeer !! Not an American hero like Chris Kyle! He joined the navy , and did the job he was trained and put there to do!!
    Heros arnt in bullshit books, movies, or tv, there pounding the ground in foreign countries risking their lives for our freedom!! The fact that the old buzzard is trying to gain money from Chris kyles! Untimely and unfortunate death . Totally erases ANYTHING Ventura has done for this country!! I wish I had the chance to clean that old shit bags clock!! Would have done it in a min!!! A HUGE thanks and salute to our American soldiers!!! You guys deserve more than u will ever get! And make me proud to be an American! With many generations of marines in my faimly serving with pride!! Since my grandfathers fighting in the pacific . To my brothers in Iraq … I thank and respect u all !!!!! If you don’t like the United States ! Or our policies. Last time I checked you can get the fuck out with no problem!!

    If Jesse is wrong he will lose in court. Why is everyone so uptight and insistent that he should drop the case? If it happened he will lose in court and if it did not happen then the book has a lie published in it which should be retracted to clear Jesse’s name. Sounds like everyone should stop trying to bully Jesse into dropping his case and simply go back to fapping to Fox news and move along – nothing to see here just legal system playing out as it should. Besides Jesse is not suing the poor widow he is suing the publisher and they have insurance that pays for it when they lose.

    The poor helpless widow won’t lose a dime. She still gets her payday. In fact the publicity should increase book sales and be a huge benefit to her so everyone needs to calm down and sit down and shut up for a while about this.

      The widow its not the one getting in any trouble…its the publisher,on the other hand why trying to bring down Ventura with this column?…Now tell me that if someone tell a lie about you in a book that you know its gonna be a best seller,you will not sued?…Probably Ventura its saying “screw this,that book its making me look like a puss* and Im gonna take him/them to court cause the incident never happened…Lets just be big boys here and NOT be a bunch of fanatics…

      July 31, 2013 at 3:02 pm

      You are unfortunately wrong. Taya Kyle gave an interview on Fox News stating that the douchebag stated in the article above is suing HER, and the insurance is not covering it, this is the Kyle family’s own money.

      Secondly, this guy is suing a widow of an American hero who was murdered trying to help veterans in America. All because he ran his mouth and got hit. Ventura needs to wake the hell up and realize that that is what happens in the real world. This is how politics are dealt with on the ground. He paid the consequence. If he thought of himself as a man, he would drop the case.

    Kyle is without doubt a hero whether or not he decked Jesse. The thing here is our constitutional court system is what Kyle dedicated his life as a SEAL to ensure. Regardless of how Rangerup writers regard Jesse Ventura, IMO, they have no business whatever criticizing him for seeking a court solution to what he believes is libel. Our court system is what KYLE fought to ensure, the rants of Rangerup writers notwithstanding.

    I served with Janos, AKA Ventura in the UDT. At the time I didn’t think much of him either way but he was one I didn’t really hang around with much. I feel he’s besmirched the UDT/SEAL fraternity one that even though I went on to the Army where I retired I still am a member.

    I think he’s an embarasment.

    As a Desert Storm Vet I will choose to present a side to Jesse’s story . jesse wants no money from Mrs. Kyle or her estate . he has said so publically . jesse Sued Chris Kyle for defamation of character and stated that Chris Kyle outright lied about the alleged punching out incident at or after a Navy Seals funeral . Chris Kyle may have been the one seeking publicity for his then new book and might have piggybacked off of Jesses Notoriety and fame. jesse stated he would never disrespect anyones funeral by creating a disturbance . And I choose to believe him due to his age and position in life . On the other hand Mr. Kyle is young and impetuous and possibly riding high full of himself and his exploits ; unlike most other snipers I might add . Jesse wanted Chris Kyle to publically state in court that he never punched out Jesse and was planning on having other Seals testify under oath as to the fabrication of Chris Kyles story . Jesse still wants the truth and his day in court and his honor restored . This sounds like what any Navy Seal would do , Young or old ?

      July 24, 2013 at 6:17 pm

      richie,

      As a response, I would like you to revisit the last 5 or 6 paragraphs in the article.

      Remember, Kyle had literally nothing to gain by mentioning the story about Ventura (a story that has eyewitnesses); Ventura has everything to gain by pushing his side.

      Was I there? No. However, I personally know a very close friend of Chris Kyle’s and by all accounts he was an extremely honorable man. As relayed by some of what I wrote here, the same can in no way be said about Ventura. He hasn’t even been consistent enough to stick with his own beliefs on pretty big issues; why should he be trusted here?

      • RoboRob

        July 31, 2013 at 12:34 pm

        In the book Chris Kyle never mentioned his royal jackass, Jesse Ventura. In a TV interview he said it was Jesse.
        The former governor is indeed a douche and even if he was libeled – so what?
        Be a man Jesse and shut the f*ck up.

    I am on the fence here. If the story Kyle wrote about is untrue even though he has passed Shouldn’t Ventura continue the suit because of defamation but even more so. If that story is a lie in his book than wouldn’t it be possible many stories are mad up? Now I also feel Ventura should just drop it I mean the guys dead….Just kinda on the fence about it.

    OK, about to be chastised, but can handle the criticism. If the bases for this article was to call him a “douche” for the act of going after the estate of a man he felt wronged had been it’s sole intent, then I would stay out of it. But to nuke his entire life and then put down those that actually like the guy (myself included) well, I feel the article has exceeded it’s merit. There is no denying that Kyle merits honor. It is my feeling that Jesse also deserves that same respect…unless there are some hidden Canadian passport issues I am unaware of. In short, I am not willing, nor should anyone define am persons service as to who is and who isn’t a true warrior. I know many fobits that never left the cozy AC buildings in war…I rarely got to enjoy that comfort BUT, I do not view them lesser then myself. They have an issue, one of the parties have passed on, Jesse hasn’t found closure with the entire issue and may have gone off the edge..I don’t have a dog in that fight. Being a retired Army Ranger…and yes, a Batt boy and not a Infantry scout (not that that is any less of a service) ego’s are a terrible thing at times….after all the writer of this article takes the egotistical stances of nuking and minimizing a vets entire life on one act that know one knows happened or not…. I just happen to disagree with Ventura being a complete douche in every aspect…. Huge ego, Roger…known many with even larger ones….Wrong in going after a fallen vets estate, probably should have simply walked away from it..but a complete douche in service, accomplishments, and efforts to succeed… not going with the in-crowd on this one…some of his articles have proven to be very accurate and enlightening. If I was an advisor to Ventura, I guess I would have to guide him that he is better then this, and walk away from the insult. However, his immediate action drill following an insult that he didn’t start…doesn’t make him a douche…Both Vets hold honor…one no more then the other. That is my two cents…let the public opinion begin their assault, security established, sector of fires double checked, ammo good, … bring it LMAO

      Take a knee, folks. Bud is right. I grant that somebody needs to take Governor Douchebag to the local VA and have him worked up for psych issues, but the fact that he can go there for care still means something. How he got to this FUBAR point in his life doesn’t much matter. The fact is that, no matter how many times his panty-wearing ass deserved to be slapped back in the past, his actions now make him a first rate prick. Chris Kyle provided the deserved slap down for the comment Ventura made regarding the loss of service members. What’s in question now is the fucktarded approach Ventura is taking by sandhumping a widow and a worthwhile attempt to help veterans and their families. Would I give my vote to make Ventura the Official Governor of Douchebagistan? Absolutely! Would I negate his service to our country? No more than I would that of Chris Kyle… and I don’t think that Chris would either… Ventura needs to RTFU and move on.

    Any tiny bit of respect I had left for this scumbag based solely on being Blaine is long gone. This guy epitomizes that time-honored expression that includes “Best part of you” and “The crack of your mother’s ass”.

    Jesse was a SEAL, back then there were UDT AND SEAL teams, they went thru the same training. at the end of BUDS the graduates counted off 1,2,1,2,1,2 the 1’s went to SEAL team and the 2 to UDT team. now they are all SEALS. He’s SEAL to the TEAM guys, just happens he’s a douchebag

      Rhinoman you are incorrect. That is not how we were assigned to the various teams. We were picked by a board of review. Jesse (Jim Janos) was in Class 58. He was assigned to UDT 12 he had an NEC 5321, UDT Combat Swimmer. I was in Class 57. I was assigned to SEAL TEAM ONE and had an NEC 5326 SEAL Combat Swimmer. Our missions were different. When BUD/S graduates were assigned to a SEAL TEAM they had a six month probation period. We were required to complete SEAL Basic Indoctrination(SBI) and US Army Airborne School. Many of us also completed SEAL Advanced Training (SAT). UDTs went to Airborne school and had their own in house training and probation. Jesse was never an active duty SEAL and he never saw combat.

        @Seal76 – From an Army vet to a Navy vet, thanks for your service! I bet you have some stories, all classified I’m sure.

    I hope Ventura gets shot. He is a prime candidate for extreme late term abortion. If he truly did say that ANY service person needs to die he should show us how first. I nominate him for Governor of Douchebagistan.

    I don’t write to things like this as a rule, but after reading all the comments I feel the need to point out something. I have read the book, and the story is in there. However it does not mention ANY name other then an obvious fill in name so as not to say specifically who the person in the fight was. If Kyle later said that it was Jesse on a show or even in private that would be something Jesse might have something to say about, but since it was not in the book he really does not have a leg to stand on. Unless of course the lawsuit is about an interview instead of the book.

    Jesse may be a veteran. He is no combat veteran no matter how he chooses to phrase his “non-disclosure agreement” with the Navy. While Jesse (James Janos) served as a member of UDT 12 he may have spent a week in RVN but was not engaged in any combat. I graduated from BUD/S Class 57 and was a member SEAL TEAM ONE. I did a combat deployment with a platoon to RVN. Jesse was in Class 58. He is a disgrace to the UDT/SEAL brotherhood. Bringing a lawsuit against a real warrior and his family is just shameful. His ego must be very fragile if he is upset about a remark made on a radio show which most American’s don’t even know about.

    I’d like to call him a douche also, but douches have uses and he has none 😀 I’ve read american Sniper, and am almsot done with his second book. Chris seemed to be an honorable person, and I wish his widow luck.

    I’m not sure who’s the bigger douche…Ventura or the judge who allowed the suit to go forward.

    I have never met this wanna be douche bag and how lucky i am. We have a place a few miles from his compound. I cannot believe at one time they named Jessie and Rudy Bouch as “Frogmen of the Century”. It was one the cover of the Blast Magazine that year which was not not that long ago. What is happening to our TEAM? We used to take care of our problems in house. Jessie, if you read this i hope you can stop this craziness and realize you will become a loser and not be welcome back to the musters, or reunions. I promise you it will come back to bite you in the ass. If Kris did this and i say this as IF than let it go. You need to borrow money? Hope you come to your senses Jessie and apologize to his wife. she has enough to deal with with the kids and all. grow Up. FITH End of msg – over and out.

    Instead of name calling and lowering oneself to the same level, how about we all let the courts work it out, then voice opinions. As it stands, only a select few know the truth. Let the truth become fact. I don’t know either man, so my opinion is moot.

    Whatever honor he earned from his military service was squandered when he lied about being a Seal. The Stolen Valor Act of 2013 makes it illegal to obtain “money, property or other tangible benefit” by falsely claiming military honors. Too bad it’s not retroactive.

    wow,all i was doing was looking to see if jesse had been in the media recently and i find a website with a thread devoted to douchebags, that has grade A douchebags talking about other people they have never met,(like they know them or some shit)and debating the legality, morality, political correctness or masculinity of one mans actions, of which these actions are the right of any human being to pursue.
    just had to leave a comment and tell you fools to stop wasting your time on this to get your dick wet or hit the pipe, ride a board, fap to some hot chick on cam, make a waffle, shit in a bag and put in on old lady travis’s doorstep, walk your dog, punch your cousin, anything except this petty soul destroying arguments that lead nowhere and cause people like me to stoop to your level and get involved.

    Couldnt have put it better myself, words really cannot describe this amount of douche-baggery. I fucking have a horrible taste in my mouth after reading this. What sort of man has to go that low to get what he wants? Questions that will never be answered. “The Body” will soon realize that there is a special place in hell designated for this level of faggotry. I hope Hitler butt fucks you with a pineapple grenade bitch!

    Too much testosterone in these ravings. The absolute hostility bothers me a bit. If Navy Seals want respect, speaking like this is hardly the way to get it. After reading the comments, I think this sounds more like bullies trying to posture.

    I was a military wife for about 13 years. I spent time with special operations people. I probably have never met a Navy seal and am quite certain, they would not have to make all this noise about a man named Jesse Ventura. Most of the men I did meet were quiet and capable and did not need to posture. They had the self confidence to do what they were asked to do by the military, right or wrong. Not one mature man ever made comments about other military members in this manor.
