Normally Jesse Ventura’s crazy rhetoric just bothers people without illicitness a violent response. This was not the case a few days ago, when the former Minnesota governor decided to mouth off at a wake for a Navy SEAL, which went over well enough with other SEALs to get him clocked right in his grill. In the SEAL assailant’s defense, Ventura, a former SEAL himself (Underwater Demolition Team, to be specific), claimed “We (SEALs) deserve to lose a few guys.”

Do you, Jesse? Really?

While it may be the most recent example of Jesse Ventura spouting crazy, it’s far from the only instance. Ventura has always been a proponent of the “straight talk express,” a euphemism Ventura crafted to convey honest and frequently unpopular or unspoken sentiments on a national level. He utilized the divisive practice in getting elected, but it seems as though people have found the schtick wearing thin since he left office in 2003.

Here are more than a few instances of "The Body" exercising his right to free speech, regardless of the hit his perceived sanity might take.

Ventura Walks Off The Opie And Anthony Show

Opie and Anthony have had a contentious relationship with the outspoken former wrestler ever since this incident in which he stormed off the show, claiming he was ganged-up on by the radio show gang. Here he was railing on 9/11 conspiracies, and acting more than a little patronizing while doing it.

Someone is bound to storm out of the room when they share it with Ventura, and since Opie and Anthony are the show's hosts, it makes sense that it was Jesse that busted out.

Jesse Gets In A Shouting Match Over The War In Iraq…At The Baltimore Book Festival

Talk about the wrong forum. Ventura can't help himself from getting embroiled in debate, even long after he's held office. This is from 2010's Baltimore Book Festival. Ventura is sitting on a panel when he gets heckled by someone for his views on the war on terror. Ventura responds, and derails what was probably a very pleasant conversation about Walt Whitman or something.

Conspiracy Theory

Recently, Ventura has been riding a third wave of stardom based on his popular conspiracy theory views. This celebrity is not to be conflated with “respect,” as he goes after some pretty crazy topics that seem better fodder for the Weekly World News than the time and efforts of a former governor. Here he is discussing how aliens don’t exist, and Area 51 is for super-secret weapons. And this isn’t even the craziest episode he hosts.

Ventura On Good Morning America

Sure, he’s pontificating about some secret government 9/11 documents that prove that the attacks were part of a conspiracy (or something like that), but the real insanity here is that jacket. It’s on loan from the Steven Segal On Deadly Ground collection. He doesn’t start chanting in this clip, but I’m willing to be he does later in the video. The t-shirt underneath is a nice touch. Schizophrenic-chic.

Jesse Ventura Is Wrong About Bin Laden Being Alive, Claims He Worked For CIA

He manages to out-crazy Fox News on this program, which is no small feat. At about 2:15, he discusses Bin Laden being an operative for the CIA in the past, and claims that we missed our opportunity to kill him. I’m not really going to craft an opinion on the former, and he’s just flat out wrong on the latter, as I’m pretty sure the US got another chance to kill him when they killed him.

The Body Takes Style Elements From Gene Simmons

When you take elements of the Kiss frontman’s style, including the dyed hair, and sportcoat with t-shirt look, then add to it dual braided bears, you’re going to raise a few eyebrows. When you rock that look on a national news show in 2008, you’re opening yourself up to some serious sanity-questioning.
