Sometimes the best thing you can do to help the revolution is simply keep your mouth shut.
Two of the oh-so-tragic “victims” of the now legendary UC Davis Pepper Spray Massacre foolishly gave an interview to KTVU, appearing perfectly healthy while smiling and almost giggling as they describe the unbearable agony of getting pepper sprayed:
Yeah, it hurts, girls (I was pepper sprayed twice while covered the 2008 Democratic convention in Denver, so I have a recent experience with it), but that’s the whole point: it briefly hurts the eyes, but causes no lasting damage. That’s why these non-lethal crowd-control measures were invented in the first place – so people wouldn’t have any basis to complain when they were used to disperse crowds.
Their giddy and smug demeanor – reveling in the media glory of being the victim-du-jour of evil police brutality – completely undermines their message about the “excruciatingly painful” pepper spray in their eyes.
But no matter – expect the mainstream media to run with this story for as long as they can. Victimology trumps reality every time.
The interview clip above is an excerpt from this full report, prepared by TV station KTVU:
And make sure to watch the full report too, which includes the UC Davis Chancellor groveling and apologizing to the Occupy protesters, only to have her apology rejected as she was literally chased off her own campus by OWS goons. Unreal.

“Anonymous” threatens pepper-spray cops in menacing new video:
The UC Davis police officer filmed casually pepper-spraying passive student protesters is the latest target of the computer hacking collective Anonymous.
A new 10-minute video attributed to the shadowy “hacktivist” group threatens the officer directly and makes public his personal contact information – including his cell phone number and an alleged home address.
The voicemail on the working cell number for Lt. John Pike was full Tuesday.
“Dear Officer John Pike, we are Anonymous. Your information is now public domain,” a computer-generated voice narrating the Anonymous video states.
“Expect our full wrath,” the voice continues as viral video of the Friday incident plays in the background. “Anonymous seeks to avenge all protesters…We are going to make you squeal like a pig.”
The ominous message, which ends with a photo of Pike and the sounds of shrieking pigs, makes no excuse for exposing Pike to potential reprisals.
“We have no problem targeting police and releasing their information even if it puts them at risk because we want them to experience just a taste of the brutality and misery they serve us on an everyday basis,” it says.
Does that mean Anonymous will make the cops giggle?
I saw this earlier and assumed readers already knew about it, but in case not, to place the whole charade in even further context:
The fact that this hurricane-in-a-doll’s-toy-teapot is getting international attention only further confirms that there’s no real police brutality going on; if this is all they got, then they got nothin’.
