Boy that James O’Keefe sure is something isn’t he? He’s become the poster child for the angry, privileged white conservative. After his tasteless victory against ACORN– mocking and framing a thirty year organization committed to helping the poor– O’Keefe’s wet beak searched and plotted frantically for his next big take down. With the aid of his financial and political Svengali Andrew Breitbart, O’Keefe and his Project Veritas organization trained their sights on Senator Mary Landrieu, secretly trying to bug the senator’s office.
I find the title of O’Keefe’s organization quite apt, because in reality there is nothing “truthful” about what this hack does. I don’t know what is more galling: his lack of intellectual honesty, or his overall lack of ethics, morals, and shame.
I suppose trying to scam Abbie Boudreau seemed ethically cleansing to him–as if he were righting some perceived malevolence perpetrated by the liberal media elite. Unfortunately his methods–disgustingly juvenile and bordering on illegal–never seem to cause him any consequence.
It was not enough to disgrace an organization that was more relevant, productive and necessary than he could ever hope to be, nestled in his bigoted cocoon of privilege. What O’Keefe has now perpetrated is morally and ethically repugnant, leaving no doubt to his worth as a human being.
Today I’m fueled by disgust. James O’Keefe tried to commit a crime. He attempted to commit a felonious act, solely for the purpose of “exposing hypocrisy.” Since when has it ever been justifiable–legally, ethically or morally–to premeditate a felonious act to prove some asinine political theory?
How was O’Keefe not arrested for this outrage? Was this not a case of premeditated kidnapping and assault? I’m sure Ms. Boudreau would not consent to being trapped on a boat with a lecherous young deviant such as O’Keefe. And this is the problem: The trappings of arrogant privilege leak profusely from O’Keefe’s water-logged head. He never, ever thought twice about the legal ramifications of such a stunt if it worked to the desired affect. He tried to make a point about respectable journalism– by being a rapacious half-wit. He ended up making a bigger point about irresponsible hack reporting. Kudos to him.
I’m tired of the false, self-righteous indignation these lunatic conservatives engage in. I’m sick of the whiny, incoherent, patriotic drivel spewing from losers, who’ve become disillusioned with the process because they don’t get what they want.
James O’Keefe is exactly what is wrong with illiterate dissent. He’s a craven coward, who’s become a prop for the conservative white male elitist power structure–and who’s just dumb enough to manipulate– and provide fodder for conservative sycophants, who have not an ounce of common sense. The blind leading the even more blind right to the precipice of a phony revolution. His fifteen minutes ended fifteen minutes ago.
