For those unfamiliar with what these are, they are earplugs, generally used by employees in manufacturing facilities where loud machines are used. They are also used by gun owners when shooting. So it’s understandable that a Liberal reporter who never actually worked with his hands or fired a gun would have no idea what they are. But still: rubber bullets?
…the response by blogger David Burge…
A leaked document from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis predicts increased “anti-government violence over the next year.” The document says the inspiration for violence is Cliven Bundy’s Bunkerville standoff with the Bureau of Land Management from earlier in the year.
DHS’s seven-page report entitled Domestic Violent Extremists Pose a Threat to Government Officials and Law Enforcement points to the recent murders of two Las Vegas law enforcement officers as evidence that there is a “growing trend of anti-government violence compared to the previous four years and inspired by perceived government overreach and oppression” and the “perceived victory at Bunkervile” will “likely prompt more violence.”
Bundy’s 20-year legal dispute with the BLM over grazing fees on federal land escalated when the agency attempted to seize his cattle in the beginning of April. An armed stand off between the BLM and supporters of Bundy ensued until the feds backed off before any serious violence erupted and left the 67-year-old rancher’s land.

Hollywood director and liberal activist Rob Reiner told talk-show host Larry King that the Tea Party is like the terrorist group Hamas, because apparently both groups are extreme and cannot be negotiated with, and the only solution is to make them go away or “eliminate” them.
“[Y]ou can’t negotiate with that, you have to say either Hamas goes away and the Palestinian authority takes over all that region and deal with some kind of honest broker here, and create the two-state solution,” said Reiner.
Reiner continued, “You look at the Congress right now in the United States, you’ve got a strong Tea Party group controlling the whole country, because they have a gridlock, they have a gridlock, stranglehold on Boehner. Boehner can’t make a move, and so for that reason, nothing gets brought up in the Congress.”
Drawing a parallel with the Tea Party, he said, “anytime you’re dealing with an extreme group, you cannot negotiate with them, and the way to do it is to eliminate it. With the Tea Party, you have to go through political thing, you have to wait till 2020 to redistrict, but that is really tough stuff.”
The U.S. State Department designated Hamas a terrorist organization in 1997. The Tea Party stands for Taxed Enough Already and sprang up from the American grassroots in 2010 largely in opposition to Obamacare, and has broadened to include issues such limited government, fewer government regulations, and adherence to the Constitution.

We suppose this was inevitable … but that doesn’t make it any easier to stomach. After news of Robin Williams’ suicide broke, it didn’t take long for identity politics to rear its ugly head:

Disheartening — and absolutely disgusting. Fortunately, some people have still got their heads screwed on straight:

Seems some people have forgotten how much media attention the death of Whitney Houston received. It was almost a week before they stopped doing stories about her. Of course that may have been to avoid doing any stories about the death of Andrew Breitbart.
Engineer Thinus Botha, 32, took the photo of the two giraffes after driving next to the truck for half a mile on the N1 on the outskirts of Pretoria, South Africa’s capital.
He decided to pull over to capture the moment – and witnessed the gruesome accident seconds later.
‘I pulled over just before the bridge and a few seconds after I took the photo the first giraffe hit its head on the bridge,’ he told MailOnline.
‘There was a loud bang and I saw blood coming from the nose of the giraffe.
South Africa’s Society for the Prevention of cruelty to Animals said the incident was deadly serious and the driver could be prosecuted.
The driver, however, claims it was the giraffe’s fault — he should have ducked.
