And of course, seeing as it's James O'Queef, it's a good bet that the entire video was very selectively edited to take people's wors out of context and make them look bad.
 
2012-07-19 02:30:09 AM
If by 'hilarity' you mean 'no one took him seriously,' then yeah.
 
2012-07-19 02:39:48 AM
James O'Keefe should be kicked in the nuts repeatedly until he's dead.

There's very little that is more sad than listening to James O'Keefe.

Sit down, brace yourselves, because this is going to be a massive shock, but...the actual, unedited footage shows the exact opposite:

LinkBut the raw footage of the video shows no such thing. In the raw footage, the union leaders are highly skeptical of Earth Supply and Renewal, and they never promise to help "secure funding" for it.

In the raw footage, the union leaders repeatedly ask the "ESR employees" about the purpose of their projects. When they can't give any, Hutchings and the Tocci brothers gently propose they take on more useful work. Hutchings asks if they "dig prior to construction projects" for "historical artifacts." Ron Tocci asks if they analyze or remediate soil, then later says, "I'm just trying to get a hook on how you sell your product." When one actor says, "There are people who have seen merit in what we're doing, especially from the green, more green circles," an incredulous Tocci replies, "Well, why would they see that as -- besides the jobs that you would create, what are you doing for the environment?""

For some reason, I can't create a link, but here it is:

Sorry, but I'll never click a Townhall or Washington Times link. Ever.

My local paper did a story on this yesterday.
Link

Ron Tocci said the three labor officials (he is a dues-paying member of the union) had given the "kids" an audience because they had called and been referred from a New Jersey contact. He said the union officials determined after the meeting that they were scammers or too unsophisticated to ever get a grant. "My brother and I said this must be a scam. We told them we want them to see their principle," Tocci said. "It's all BS." He said he told them they needed to evolve and can't be just digging holes and suggested doing dirt cleaning or remediation of brown fields.

"We figured they were shysters," said Tocci, an assemblyman for 20 years until becoming commissioner of Veteran Affairs from 2005 to 2007. "We tried to be courteous. They were young kids; first thing that comes to mind is that its young idealists, like Occupy Wall Street. We sized it up even half-way through the meeting when they couldn't explain what they did with the dirt." He did not know about being featured in O'Keefe's project until being contacted by a reporter Wednesday morning. The union leaders, he said, never took the pitch too seriously because it didn't add up.


I also love the time stamps on the video. Is that so they can't be sued for exchanges like this?

[time stamp: 5878] Operative: We've just been digging the ditches, then we dig the ditch, we take the dirt, and we put the dirt, we actually just take the dirt and we put it right back in the ground.

[time stamp: 21432] Labor Guy: It sounds like, it almost is exactly the same as where we were with Green Jobs Green New York.

Prolly for the best.

So once again the faux patriot pimp tries his selective editing crap this time in order to try to make unions look bad and fails spectacularly to all but the nearly brain dead.

Anyone left who still wants to White Knight this pimple ridden, brain dead, sleazeball amateur propagandist?

Anyone?

Are you suggesting that Mr. O'Keefe would be so dishonest as to edit the recording and present its contents out of context, and even out of order, to present a false understanding of the actual events of the meeting? Even were he so dishonest as to do so, do you actually believe that he would be so stupid as to selectively edit a video that features a running timestamp, which would make such edits immediately obvious?

Can you imagine if you had to get government contracts, zoning permits, new equipment-

You're talking minimum 5 figures to dig hole, fill hole, piss on hole.

Do us a favor and spend the $10.95 out of your own pocket.
 
2012-07-19 10:53:52 AM
Hey Queef: if you're going to selective edit a video to take peoples words out of context, then you might also want to remove the timestamp that shows a 30 minute jump between your question and their answer.

And to answer your question ChimpMitten, I still think they could be sued for defamation for this stuff. IIRC the question in libel cases is whether a reasonable person would believe the lie; all these guys would need to do to show that would be to ask how many times this video got reran on Fox.

As with O'Keefe's usual schtick, and really with most trolls of all breeds, the method seems to be that he pretends to be an idiot, people believe that he is one, and he considers that a win condition.

Why being credibly stupid means that other people are, I have never understood.
 
2012-07-19 10:56:35 AM
What the hell is up with the time stamp in that video? It keeps jumping around, getting blurred, and disappearing. How could anybody take a video that the time stamp is so obviously hinky seriously?
 
2012-07-19 10:56:51 AM
Why wasn't this guy made completely irrelevant when he tried (and failed) to "secude" that CNN Anchor? That story was insane to the point of hilarity but you barely hear about it anymore...

...I don't support violence towards this....thing....but can someone please find a way to humiliate him badly enough where he quietly ventures off to Alaska to live the rest of his life giving hand jobs to Wendigos?

O'Keefe ranks below a member of P.A.G.A.N.? That's pretty bad.
 
2012-07-19 10:59:29 AM
The guys from the union look like they have a pretty open and shut libel case, or at least tortuous interference I'm their business. This was clearly edited together with malicious intent, they are not public figures, and any harm to their business relationships (like canceled contracts) should have to be paid by O'Keeffe.
