After thanking police at a September, 2016 Seattle City Council meeting for helping his addicted daughter find social services, and confronted by a frenzied social justice warrior who screamed out that she was sexually harassed by his providing a joke name, Rudy Pantoja Jr. has so far received over $140,000.00 in donations in a truly bizarre story of how sometimes being confronted by Precious Snowflakes can be not only immensely annoying, it has a potential for immense earnings.

Two months ago, the City of Seattle held a public hearing to discuss a resolution to construct a new police precinct station in North Seattle, commonly referred to as The Bunker due to its architectural design. During the forum Mr. Pantoja provided testimony conveying his thanks to the city’s police department in providing much needed assistance for his then homeless and heroin addicted daughter to rise from the trappings of her addiction.

After the meeting’s conclusion a video news crew interviewed Pantoja which unfortunately, at least in the immediate sense, attracted the attention of a shrill Social Justice Warrior named Zarna Joshi who was determined to admonish him for voicing a degree of gratitude toward the police.

Joshi approached Pantoja, stuck a camera at him and demanded to know his name. Not apparently seeing the need to reveal his identity to a stranger, he arrived at a rather novel reply…

Hugh Mungus

Hair triggered, Snowflake Joshi spun herself into a tempest, shrieking into almost a rage for how Mr. Hugh Mungus somehow sexually harassed her by providing the joke name. One could only imagine the Chernobylesque Meltdown she might have experienced if he was a Monty Python fan who just watched The Life of Bryan and thought of Pilate’s friend.

Her disorderly behavior predictably led to an intervention by security and police.

After posting to the interweb the video, Joshi claimed that Hugh was a sexual harasser and offered the following hyperbole on her Facebook page.

“The security guards, who witnessed everything, then accosted me to tell me to be quiet. When I asked them why they were going after me instead of the man who sexually harassed me, they called the cops ON ME.”

“The cops were already there, of course. They didn’t go after the man who’d sexually harassed me. When I asked them to at least take notes of what happened and why they were not going after the man who sexually harassed me, they said that I should speak with one of their officers alone. They didn’t take any notes, they didn’t even send one man to go look out for the guy while this conversation was going on for over ten minutes.”

Joshi might not be aware of the Washington Criminal Code, but sexual harassment is not a crime in Washington and Seattle cannot help her with that accusation. But when one is perpetually outraged, facts and laws are of less importance.

Still, her video attracted a few million hits among various copies and distributions and garnered attention both positive and negative between these two. It spread beyond the scope of the internet and a company made hats and T-Shirts for the occasion.

Unfortunately, it was not long before Joshi made a fool of herself once again before the city council, this time going after two members of the council. In a seething, insidiousness with almost a “yeah, we’ll be watching you” type of nefarious tone, she won another escort out of the building for causing a disruption. Of course, this occurred fittingly on Halloween.

My favorite line: “After I spoke publicly against you, [councilwoman] the cops sent racist, white-supremacist, rapists after me.”

I must have missed something. I wasn’t aware of the availability of the Racist, White-Supremacist, Rapist Service available to Washington Law Enforcement Officers. Were they listed on the car towing company rotation list or did I need to go through the State Patrol’s special operations bureau.

Since Hugh Mungus attracted a rather, sorry, Huge following, he was later interviewed online with H3H3 Productions:

In a follow-up, H3H3 re-contacted Hugh and discovered times had changed for the worse.

Facing mounting health care costs related to a cancer diagnosis and complications from a hip replacement surgery, he was facing eviction and was forced to resort to difficult choices to help manage the costs.

Meanwhile, around the time of the Halloween Surprise with Joshi, she set up a fund drive for herself on the GoFundMe knockoff “YouCaring” to help alleviate financial costs inherent with being oppressed and suffering threats to her “safety”, or perhaps she just discovered another way to siphon money from other social justice warriors in a challenge to out-victim the other. She set a goal on YouCaring to raise one thousand dollars.


Much probably to her dismay, many, if not most, of her contributions consisted of one dollar amounts. For a great many readers of this website, it was worth a dollar to lob insults at her:


Later, she discovered a feature of YouCaring that allowed her to censor the comment/insult.  She was more than happy to take the money, but in typical SJW fashion was also more than willing to bite the hands that fed her.

Eventually, word of Joshi’s YouCaring site found its way back to H3H3 who deemed it only fitting to also create a YouCaring charity drive for Hugh Mungus to offset his medical costs.  The page went wild, so much so that the back and forth between Hugh Mungus and Joshi crashed YouCaring’s servers and the site went offline for numerous hours until finally being restored.

After receiving a good publicity, contributions poured in for Mr. Mungus after Reddit took notice. But unexpectedly, YouCaring terminated both Joshi’s and Hugh Mungus’ accounts, claiming that the matter was causing too much controversy.  What?  I would think YouCaring would be more than happy to take a percentage of all contributions to whatever cause their client brought to them.  But, I suspect the embarrassment of their servers crashing might have been the strongest factor.  Lamers.

Undeterred, H3H3 contracted with a real fund raising website, GoFundMe, to host Hugh Mungus’ medical expense fund drive.  There was genuine concern for his plight, but one cannot deny the fund drive’s success was in large part due to the backlash against not only Joshi’s insolent and cringe-worthy pathology, but a forum to slap back at SJWs in general. But unlike Joshi who’s taunting contributors provided minimal amounts, Hugh Mungus’ best contributors contributed sometimes hundreds, but two as high as a grand with one measuring two thousand.

Once enabled, Hugh Mungus’ GoFundMe page quickly became a money grazing netcow, gaining nearly a staggering $100,000 dollars in the first two days.


So there you have it. Sometimes it is worth enduring the wrath of the snowflake social justice warrior–a gift that keeps on giving–yet on occasion it is a sacrifice that might be worth earning a buck or two.

Please help our friend Hugh Mungus through these difficult times. Donate Now! Countless Precious Snowflakes are in need of melting.

  1. Joe Bageant offered some years ago the observation that “In 1960, common sense was about equally distributed between right an left”, something, he said, which was no longer the case. In 1960, damaged people were not given positive feedback for behaving this way and academics did not supply to them verbiage to reframe their personal dysfunctions as a political and social viewpoints.

  2. What did I just watch???? This woman is completely unhinged, and a danger to herself and other members of society. Good Lord….

    1. Likely no danger. Just don’t hire her or rent an apartment to her.

    1. Schizophrenics hear voices, babble to themselves, lose their sense of hygiene, and get the idea in their head that they’re under surveillance or people are plotting against them. The mix of phenomena differs from person to person. However, Fuller Torrey once said, “Stark staring mad is a lot more common than stark raving mad”.

      She’s far too aggressive to be a schizophrenic of the modal type (though some such are aggressive). She’s also too coherent. “Obnoxious narcissist’ might cover it, though….

  3. I am so glad people are willing to defend an innocent free thinking person who is battleing cancer recovering from hip surgery who graciously thanked and supported local police for their care concern and service to help his daughter. The whack-job who probably deserves the level of sympathy that mental illness should recieve got some realist life therapy called a reality check.

  4. Hey, maybe someone will set up a GoFundMe site to help Amy Shumer move… Unfunny, tw@t.

    1. Autumn – sadly Schumer said see was just ‘jesting’ when she said she would leave. I think she just can’t learn Spanish.

      1. Paul Schulte…..
        There were c.15-20 celebrities who pledged to leave the U.S. if Trump won.
        Al Sharpton and Whoopi Goldberg have already done a 180 on that.
        It remains to be seen how many other drama queens backtrack on their statements that they’d leave.
        Growing up, there was a kid in the neighbor who threatened to run away from home a number of times.
        Unfortunately, he never did.

        1. tnash – as a kid I ran away from home several times. The last time was for several weeks. It was hard to stay underground in a small town. Finally, I ran out of food and went home.

  5. She is a fascist progressive. Fascism is anti Liberal (in the sense of individual liberty), and anti conservative. It is pro big government by force if needed, forcing others to the state approved view, forcible erosion of free speech, the espousal of a State party and a State media and a State manner of thinking…Sound familiar? At one time, Prohibition was a Progressive effort -forcing people to stop drinking through government. So was eugenics, although it’s been forgotten that this was another ill fated superiority through science movement. American Progressives were quite popular with Nazi Germany before the war. How will history look back on this particular movement of Progressives, with the riots and the shooting and the violence against cops?

    Progressives are giving Democrats a bad name. Look in the streets. I see Fascists rioting to try to force their way in defiance of our republic.

    I identify with the more classic definition of a liberal – a proponent of free speech rights especially when I vehemently disagree with the speech, individual liberty, limited government to impinge upon that liberty, and equal rights without special treatment. I could never affiliate with the Progressive movement that shouts down conservative speakers at universities, threatens students that disagree with them, require safe spaces, legitimize micro aggressions to the point that we are over sensitizing an entire generation’s fight or flight limbic system into constant anguish, or wanting to shut down or censor conservative media sources.

    Decades ago, it was the conservatives who wanted to limit free speech, who burnt books. Now it is the Progressives. They were both wrong.

    I am a fiscal conservative, a moderate who leans right on many issues but left on others, an environmentalist, equal rights without special treatment. But the Democratic Party has evolved into an organization that I do not want to be affiliated with. Politics change all the time. I hope that our politics will evolve to become more civilized and tolerant than what we are seeing in the streets today.

    1. Again, KarenS – you are confusing Liberals with Progressives. We celebrate free speech, despise PCism and identity policits — and many of us helped defeat the Hildebeest.

      we are the alt/Left and not aligned with the Demoncrats — indeed we refuse to be put in any category so will probably drop that label as well =)

  6. I love the way the SJW word salad just spills out of their mouths!

    white misogynistic homophobic patriarchal racist white nationalist straight white men xenophobic white supremacists

    Eighty years ago the SJWs would have been Hitlerjugen, and “Jewish zionist plutocratic money-grubbing Jews pornography making usurious Jews stabbed us in the back baby-eating subhuman Jews” would have been falling from their lips with similar ease.

    They are the same people, re-manifesting themselves in different places and different times, but with the exact same mindsets.

    1. And merely saying thank you to the cops was sufficient justification. Recall when Richard Dreyfus merely attended a Ted Cruz rally out of curiosity? He was a Democrat, but was interested to see what was going on, and if it was a bad as he feared. They darn near drove him out of Hollywood before he convinced them he was merely an innocent bystander. They eat their own, if they stray from the Approved Group Think.

      Fahrenheit 451 would be a very apt read at this time.

      By merely strengthening individual rights and fighting against Big Government, our political parties would have more common ground and there would be less of a risk of dictatorship.

      1. “They eat their own, if they stray from the Approved Group Think.”

        Karen, I think this is what happened to Trump, too, the establishment trying to eat him because he strayed and lit out on his own.

  7. She has found a defense mechanism that she has been told at university, always works. It doesn’t.

    Darren – I know that some police department compartmentalize, but I have never heard like a division like she is describing.

    1. Bwahahaaaa–that’s pretty funny Paul! I wonder if that police division has custom graphics on their vehicles. While we’re on the Monty Python thing, sounds like that police division has a Yellowbeard feel to it.

  8. This is the funniest story I have read yet on this blog. Thanks Darren. You made my day, especially the reference to Monty Python. I love Life of Brian. It is hilarious. But then I love the Pythons in everything they did.

    1. I’m wondering if the nearby Seattle officers were able to keep a straight face during this incident.
      Or did they break out in uncontrollable laughter, like
      the Roman centurions when Pontius Pilate was questioning Brian.

  9. And it’s possible that she is suffering from a mental illness. It doesn’t excuse her behavior but it could provide a reason.

    1. I would hope bettykath, but I’m afraid you’ll find this becoming more the standard than the exception. So much for civilization.

  10. Since when does screech owl translate to warrior. This one wouldn’t make a pimple on rear echelon mother ……. hind end. These hominids of a third kind are neither social nor deserving of any more justice than the average Seattle Pike Street pan handler that changes signs with the changing wars.

  11. As a couple over 50 yrs old both my wife and I thank you for educating us regarding the “Snowflake Generation”.

    I’m guessing this young lady’s parents might have coddled her a bit while she was growing up? They were likely afraid to use the “N word” with her: NO

    1. It’s the “Everyone gets a trophy generation.” My wife and I marveled at this while our son was growing up. When his soccer team team did not make it to the playoffs, they still received trophies. We explained to him that it was a memento for participation, that you have to work, struggle, and produce for rewards.

      Of course, the problem at that time was that we chose to identify with Lance Armstrong, we followed his training (performance enhancers or not, it’s still grueling training) and tried to teach a life based on hard work and real character. At least he sees what is happening today, he is 17 now, and a lot of his fellow students now suffer this way. And the very big problem going forward is–and don’t discount it–the suffering is real, it’s as real for these people as if the plague was going through the country.

      This actually may be our ultimate demise if the percentages are high enough. As we have seen, we can watch civilization melt away before us. People find the Walking Dead scary, and I’m afraid the real zombies are us. Whirling personality components with no control mechanism waiting to acted out in the worst ways possible.

          1. Here is a bit of information. There were two counter groups. Mine was the M2F or major middle finger group. But we voted for or against as it pleased us win very high percentages. The other side the ones’ you refer to trashing and burning their nieghborhoods etc are from the groups that stayed away from the polls and did not support their candidate OR were supporting Comrade Bernie – both were in the millions. We voted those without a grip to get did not!

            They have only themselves to blame,. IT really was that close when you consider the Electoral system is a bout balance between big and small population States. Once you hit 50% of NY plus one the rest excess to no purpose. Same in California or Illinois. In Michigan and Florida it made a difference. All of them are Winner Take all

            Which may be why California is pushing the Nebraska and Maine system.

            I will here and now bet the system that has proven itself for 240 years will not be touched for two years from now or four or another 240.

            Two other confirmed pieces of news. No matter what Trump does or doesn’t do the Iran Agreement and the Climate Change Agreement are null and void until, if and when, The Senate votes approval. I’m betting it will just be ignored and in the first place the 400 million bribe our ‘former teacher of the Constitution ha ha ha) will just disappear.

            We need no Chamberlains is a very old lesson but never mind the neutron devices have their own way of settling the matter.

            Last bit of good news is Hillary didn’t get to steal the China once again.

            As for the students. Make it a provision that committing felonies during school hours calls for no more student loans and call in the note on what was loaned. Watch that one clear the streets of these acne specialists. What? you know pimples on pimples.

  12. Now that Trump has won, the sjw has probably not just melted but evaporated already.

    I’m interested in seeing a follow-up of this story in six months or a year, to see how Hugh and his daughter are doing.

  13. Theres a hole in daddy’s arm where all the money goes.
    Jesus Christ died for nothing … I suppose.
    Little chickens have big ears…
    Dont stop to count the queers…
    Sweet songs never last too long on broken radios…
