Rann Xerox: Do you know what is the difference between James O'Keefe and Andrew Breitbart?


Gandalf already smote Breitbart's ruin upon the mountainside?

jigger: Hmm. Not any fan of this guy or anything, but that video only served to make that federal prosecutor look bad. And no prosecuting attorney has any business calling any political activist a coward.


When an accused criminal goes to the prosecutor's home and confronts his spouse, common decorum kinda goes out the window.

Sounds like a Farklib.

jayhawk88: Letten then throws the book back at O'Keefe, an act O'Keefe lables a "minor assault in front of police."


Were charges filed?

Giltric: Who knew that a coward risks jail time by breaking federal laws, while a hero uses anonymous online comments to slander and libel people.....

All the civil rights activists would be cowards according to this former attorney.....and all internet trolls, heroes.

Showing up at the home of your prosecutor is in itself a threatening action.

Okeefe should be grateful he wasn't shot on sight.

O'Keefe tried to hand Letten a copy of his book, "Breakthrough: Our Guerilla War to Expose Fraud and Save Democracy." Letten then throws the book back at O'Keefe

Looks like the prosecutor...

*puts on sunglasses*

Threw the book at him.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!

Wasn't worth the hassle when he knew he could physically and verbally disarm this sad toad of a human being within seconds ... which he promptly did.

A Dark Evil Omen: As crap as PeTA is, I've never known them to flat-out lie over and over and then hide under the skirts of far right Congresscritters.


PeTA has been caught deliberately falsifying documents and fined for it quite a few times, and having them on the sponsor list of a scientific article can discredit entire  Journals.  Even things they don't particularly need to make shiat up about, like the fact that they euthanize most of the animals they confiscate, they lie about anyhow.

O'Keefe is in Junior Varsity on the flat-out lying front, PeTA's batting in the Majors.  They're, like, maybe a tenth of a step up from actually being organized crime.  Sort of the Greenpeace of animal cruelty.

//Maybe you meant the ASPCA, which is relatively legit, and just got them mixed up because they both do animal-related stuff?

He's an American hero!

Well, O'Keefe did precipitate many people losing their jobs unfairly, but damn if PETA isn't the scum of the earth. Any celebrity endorsing PETA immediately gets my dismissal.
 
2013-08-26 05:31:03 PM
Man, this little farker O'Keefe really brings out the FARK White Knight Brigade, doesn't he?

When the day finally comes when this little shiatstain pisses off the wrong person and gets beaten within an inch of his life for it, I hope to hell there's video.

No. In fact, all the no's.

O'Keefe better be careful or he might come down with "Conservative Douchebag Premature Death Syndrome," like Breitbart and Atwater.

Peta is a joke, but they are also an organization and can't be directly personified. OTOH, O'Keefe is directly in control of his own actions and those actions are the height of an entitled, smug liar. If someone were pulling his shenanigans to support some political philosophy I had, I would not defend him at all. But then again I have integrity.

If getting out their 2 minutes hate on him puts you in the "white knight brigade" then yeah. This whole thread if full of people that want to kill him (or want to see him be beaten). He'd never be beaten as you wish because he would never risk something like that, being such a coward as he is.

I don't get it, you can just go harass a prosecutor's family with no repercussions? Why doesn't every criminal in the nation do this?

Generally I'd agree with you, but given the arrogance this little bastard demonstrates, eventually he's going to try to pull this crap on someone who wants to break every bone in his body. And I, for one, will not have even an iota of sympathy for him.

HotWingConspiracy: I don't get it, you can just go harass a prosecutor's family with no repercussions? Why doesn't every criminal in the nation do this?


And a US Senator.

Yes, yes, "but O'Keefe got probation". If that had been a Democratic activist bugging a Republican Senator's office they'd still be in jail awaiting trial on every terrorism-related charge the prosecutor thought they could make stick, and FOX News/RWEC would be pitching a hissy fit (doubly so if the activist later showed up at the prosecutor's house). They most certainly would not be featured on MSNBC or honored by Congress.
 
2013-08-26 05:50:16 PM
I gotta hand it to O'Keefe, he's unsinkable. You can call him all the epithets in the word, beat him black and blue, but that only tarnishes your reputation. If you want to damage the man you must trivialize his existence. "Oh, that man. He was a passing fad." or "Let's not talk about such lesser men" or even "Who?"
 
2013-08-26 05:50:41 PM

Well yeah.  When he wants to get confrontational it's always against drugged women.

Oh, hush. Letten was an outstanding US Attorney and rooted out a lot of political corruption here during his tenure.


Wow dude when Nabb calls you out its time to stop posting

HotWingConspiracy: I don't get it, you can just go harass a prosecutor's family with no repercussions? Why doesn't every criminal in the nation do this?


Pretty much this.  As much as idiots like O'Keefe like to complain about being oppressed/singled-out/etc., if any other convicted criminal showed up at the house of the prosecutor who prosecuted him (or, as in this case, the house of the prosecutor who oversaw the office that prosecuted him), that criminal would be spending the night (at least) locked up.

johnryan51: Why isn't he in jail for bugging a senators office?


He didn't do it alone. He never does anything alone. But he never talks.

His partner's daddy was a big DA in the state or so when they entered the Federal Building dressed as telephone workers to mess up the Senator's phone lines. Don't go anywhere without your Republican get out of jail free card.

James studied at the Leadership Institute in DC, a Republican training center, designed to impart the wisdom of Atwater and Rove to the risk-takers of the next generation. Even his famous ACORN video was done on very good equipment from the Leadership Institute and not something a budding journalist could ever afford.

James big thing is his daring and his loyalty. Some very wealthy and powerful people would not like to hear the two words: "James squealed."

Liberal media, obviously. If it were a Democratic activist that pulled this shiat, we would STILL be having Congressional investigations over it.

Nope.  It's not age.  Half the country wants to see the machine smashed as long as it doesn't interrupt anything important or require any work whatsoever.  It's dumb suburban anarchy.

Note, also, that O'Keefe coincidentally waited until AFTER his probation was over to pull this nonsense.
