It’s not quite Ahmed and Salim, but it’s still pretty good for a shoestring budget.

It’s good to see the Kurds are fighting a local propaganda campaign by mocking ISIS, and the tune is kind of catchy.

That Huffpo Writer Ryan J. Reilly Is An Idiot?

can anyone confirm ryan j reilly 140817

Soopermexican’s on this, as is Jawa Report.  They remind us this is the same reporter who played the fool and got himself arrested at McDonalds and cried about it.

This guy is a reporter. He actually WRITES stuff to inform OTHER human beings about what OTHER human beings are doing. How could you POSSIBLY do that with any kind of accuracy if you’ve never even SEEN earplugs before? Not only has he never fired a gun, or done a day of work in his life that requires earplugs, he’s never even BEEN AROUND people who do!!!!

Sort of like having a president complete with an entire staff, speechwriters and advisors and none of them can pronounce corpsman.

It exposes an astonishing ignorance of culture and life experience.  What kind of soft-handed delicate flower must Reilly be if he doesn’t even know earplugs when he sees them?

Reilly was probably never even given this talk, or was raised by people who didn’t know the difference:

Meanwhile, over at “can anyone confirm” on twitter, fun is being made.

The discussion of tweeting and how violence against is conveniently dismissed in modern media and culture reminded me of this:

Ashland, Oregon was working on some local firearms ordinances, and a concerned citizen from Citizens For A Really Safe Ashland had this modest proposal to add:

Via HotAir, whoever’s made these parodies has gone to some trouble to hide their tracks.  Their fictional business site Chimera Global Holdings is also a parody.

Big G:

Bankor the Profit:

Ariel Stryker:

Parts & Labor:

Kaptain Korn:

Update: The creator is John Papola of Emergent Order.  What follows was speculation as to who it was before Papola revealed himself.

Suspects for who created these parodies go across a broad political spectrum.  AP notes that with the inclusion of “Labor”, it’s probably not a leftist group.  The Kaptain Korn part seems rather anathema to the left, as they’re big fans of ethanol to fight against Manbearpig, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough.  Plus the general theme is one of government influence and cronyism (duh) creating wasteful spending and crushing small businesses, and the Chimera Global Holdings website includes a dig against Obamacare.  Maybe Reason or Gillespie, maybe Malkin, maybe Gutfeld or TV’s Andy Levy.  Or maybe it’s Ariana Huffington and her creative team just got a little overboard.

Some folks are suspecting Emergent Order, who were part of the folks behind the very well-produced Hayek & Keynes rap battles.

I’m gonna go with a long shot and suspect that after a few crazy commercials years ago leading to a slow, subtle return to social media with a new team, this could be Herman Cain.

Or, my last guess, is that it’s part of a viral marketing scheme for a movie remake… where the original included parody commercials:
