That's interesting, considering these people have zero interest in telling the truth. Their only interest is to keep the rubes scared and voting their rights away incrementally by checking (R) every two years.

So who is paying their bills?

Martian_Astronomer: Long story short, between this group and James O'Keefe's people, every time I hear about an organization with the word "Veritas" in the name, I now assume they're full of shiat until proven otherwise.


I feel the same way about groups who use cheap words like Freedomtm and Libertytm in their titles. Much like Veritas has no actual interest in truth, these flag-pimping PACs and other organizations ironically destroy the very things they purport to stand for, at least for individuals. LIbertytm does actually apply to corporations.

///that O'keefe and his cohorts might just be full of sh*t has not once occurred to him

Dr. Mojo PhD: Now, here's the real question.

Is there a law against people who dress like ridiculous idiots voting?
Is there a law against people who wear lederhosen voting?


^^^^^ This, SO MUCH ^^^^^

this is exactly the problem. It's not supposed to matter how we dress to go vote, it's a free country, we can(more or less) dress any way we want, with the exception of wearing things that are designed to try and sway other voters. Otherwise, O'Keefe can go piss up a rope.
What I really, REALLY don't understand is how people on the Right with even 1/10 of a normal brain can put up with this childish bullshiat, and not only that, but believe in it? Not everyone on the Right is stupid, there are some intelligent people who simply feel that the Left does not echo their views as well as the Right. It doesn't mean that they aren't smart enough to see through this thinly veiled wall of bullshiat.

The worst part about the people who suck on the mother-lovin' Penis of Veritas? These dumbfarks actually post the UNEDITED video on their site for anyone to expose them with, and it's worked every time. If they were actually legitimate and their stuff was being taken out of context, that would be one thing, but every time it's been the stuff they edited out that proved them to be 100% false in their accusations. Example #1 is the part where they are asked about and given the ballot for Bolton Jr, but claim that they were given the ballot for Sr. There's no question that they knew which ballot they did or didn't have, it doesn't take someone too look at the video 'in the right way', it's ALL RIGHT FARKING THERE.

OK, now I'm gonna go kick the cat, throw a baby in traffic, something to get the edge off of this frustration. Maybe I should just pay this jackass a visit and break his farking nose, that would at least make me feel a little bit better.

unlikely: So the guy went in, lied about his identity, obtained someone else's ballot, filled it out, didn't sign it, and took off.

Is nothing about that criminal in any way, that he's not facing charges?


Well, they're investigating... My hope is that the Right is getting tired of these bullshiat tactics and he finally gets charged with something. He might have seemed like a savior when he tok down ACORN, but the smart people who backed him should be pretty pissed by now. Nothing he claimed in either the ACORN video or this one has turned out to be true, down to the very fact of whose ballot they used. It's not even 'creative editing', it's flat out lying about what was on these undercover videos, plain and simple. One day, someone in power in the Conservative movement is going to decide that enough is enough and this little pipsqueak will become the sacrificial lamb to get people who have given up on the Right to come back into the fold... Let's hope its sooner, rather than later.

We look forward the results of the election board investigation. We are confident with this, as every previous inquiry, it will be found we in no way committed a wrongdoing," his email said

Dude, you didn't do anything wrong....you just didn't do anything RIGHT.

So...he is saying it isn't wrong vote fraudulently? Huh, then what was his point?

You accidentally a fraudulently. And yeah, they committed serious violations.

There was a dude on Fark a while back who bragged about voting twice. On a lark, I submitted the info to the election commission in his state... those guys would contact me several times a week asking for info on the matter. I never replied. Didn't feel like getting that involved; all I knew was what he'd said on Fark.

He didn't actually vote, because he didn't actually well, vote. So he didn't do anything "wrong." But he didn't do anything right, either. What he did was prove that the voter antifraud laws work like they should, that he's a douchebag of the highest order, and that if he can do one thing, it's completely fark up one grieving family's life.

It is wrong vote fraudulently, btw, Borat.

What!? No Smallville references (or did I miss one)?

FARKers, I am disappoint!


On a more serious note, there was a wonderful post by "TV's Vinnie" in last week's O'Keefe thread. Here it is, and my own Reply to it:

TV's Vinnie: Much the way that Planned Parenthood is more than just about abortions, ACORN was more than just voter registration. ACORN was an agency that helped the poor. O'Keefe hates the poor with a seething passion, so to him, ACORN had to go.

Imagine being such a bitter, hate-filled little sh*t of a "man" for hating the poor so god-damned much that you even want to destroy anything and any one who may want to help them. To leave those in poverty with no help, no rights, no hope.

[wwwimage.cbsnews.com image 370x278]
THAT is the sort of creature that is one James O'Keefe.


Others, including me, got sidetracked by your photo of his backpfeifengesicht, but your post itself is vitally important.

Does O'Keefe claim to be a Christian? If so, he really should read Matthew 25:31-46, in which Jesus Himself (this is virtually all red ink in a Red Letter Edition) describing the Final Judgment and saying exactly what the criteria are for determining who is among the Saved Sheep on His Right Hand and who is among the Damned Goats on His Left Hand − and no, it's not determined by "accepting Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior" (He Himself never said any such thing, and flatly contradicted that teaching numerous times, most notably in this very passage).

Looks like Jesus would need another hand, for the Über-Damned Sub-Vermin who not only did not feed Him when hungry, etc., but actively prevented Him from receiving such help from others who would've done so, destroying the very means that the Saved Sheep on His Right Hand would've used to help Him − and who did so on a massive scale.

O'Keefe had just better hope that Christianity isn't true.

I'm really very sure that representing yourself to an election official as someone else would be just farking plenty to get you or me arrested for whatever the local version of identity theft is. Saying 'I was just making a point' wouldn't save us and shouldn't save him, he is a criminal with repeated history of this kind of thing.

The US makes much more of an effort to pretend to be democratic. The GOP would be much more comfortable in Putin's Russia.

That's a beautiful example of why the right-wing insanity will never go away: epistemic closure. They've carefully constructed a bubble which at this point is totally impenetrable by reality. The logic is as follows:

- Any source that contradicts conservative dogma is liberally biased.
- Liberally-biased sources are not to be trusted.
- Therefore, no trustworthy source contradicts conservative dogma, therefore it's correct.

OK, this is very interesting, philosophically speaking, if deeply disheartening on other levels.

Now...my question is "Is their self-generated epistemic bubble shrinking?"

This is important for some reason I can't quite put my finger on.
