James O’Keefe Endures Death Threats and Filthy Hipsters

June 14th, 2014 - 10:31 am

To Mike Spies, these are called inconvenient truths, and therefore never appeared in his story, a story which explicitly opined that James had lost his mojo.

But the real reason O’Keefe is hated so much by big government types, and why Spies naturally gravitated toward a hit piece, is because O’Keefe understands the mechanics of the left. Unlike so many others who talk and talk some more, O’Keefe takes action. He exposes the pressure points on the left, either when they co-opt a Republican congressman into doing Eric Holder’s bidding, or when exposing a culture of tolerance toward criminal voter fraud inside Democrat campaigns.

Perhaps O’Keefe should have known better than to expect fairness from Spies. Perhaps O’Keefe shouldn’t have invited him in.  Perhaps James still clings to a forlorn hope that the left will see the value in his investigative journalism. James should pick up his well-worn copy of Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky and re-read Rule 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” When you do the sort of damage James has done to the left, you won’t find any friends on the left dressed in sheep’s clothing, or dirty filthy jeans.

O'Keefe is my hero. I've donated more to Project Veritas than I have to any other conservative cause. I encourage you all to do the same.

Pundits pun and talking heads talk.

This is why he is hated by pundits and talking heads.

O'Keefe definitely has "a pair". Given what happened to San Diego
journalist Michael Hastings, I'm surprised there are ANY truth seeking journalists left!!

I think it's more that James knows that, given his stock in trade, he's got to walk into the lion's den, himself, to keep his credibility - not with the left, but with the undecided.

Losers lose, winners win;
Cheaters cheat, singers sing.
Dreamers dream, cryers cry;
Fools believe, and Liars Lie.

It's odd there was no mention that the last two "stings" by O'Keefe were on Wisconsin Republicans. The Wisconsin Senate Leader was Mike Ellis and James Sensenbrenner was the Congressman. I thought someone in the comment section would mention it. I don't know that it will hurt Sensenbrenner as I had never heard it, but Ellis has already resigned as that was all over every newspaper.

What is O'Keefe thinking to give this 'journolist' even the correct time?

Duh, He ain't Glenn Greenwald.
O'Keefe must be going through depression.
His high school newspaper days are over. lol
He should be glad someone even remembers him.

Great rebuttal! I support James O'Keefe... and wish we had more talented, smart, and courageous men and women like him doing real investigative reporting that makes real change.

I read the entire article by Spies, don't think it will leave a mark. But then I am one of those O'Keefe fans he refers to. Our country needs more James O'Keefes. No Pajama Boys. No Lawless Presidents.
