James O'Keefe - Master of Disguise

Ben Stein on James O'Keefe:

In case you wonder what the future is for justice and law enforcement and media control in this country, take a look at two cases. During the last Presidential election, a gang of men calling themselves Black Panthers showed up at a polling place in Michigan. They threatened any voter who did not vote for Barack Obama. This was witnessed and documented. (I am suspicious of their involvement with the real Black Panthers, whom I knew well in New Haven, who had a little more finesse along with many, many faults.)

Empahsis mine. Mr. Stein comes close here. He recognized something is not quite right with the Black Panthers here, but can't quite connect the dots. He continues:

A few days ago, four young conservatives posed as telephone repairmen and entered the branch office of Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana in New Orleans. Their goal was to check to see if the phone system in the office was working. The men, under the leadership of a young media impresario named James O'Keefe, were querying why constituents of Sen. Landrieu had been unable to register negative feelings about Obamacare on the Senator's phone line. They had been told that perhaps the phones were out of order. O'Keefe is the fellow who recorded workers at liberal advocacy group ACORN telling a young woman how to set up a brothel for 14-year-old illegal immigrant girls from Central America. This had caused considerable anger towards ACORN, one of Obama's most stalwart supporting groups.

Ah Ben. You forgot about the costumes. Remember the costumes? O'Keefe was decked out as a pimp and his accomplice Hanna Giles as the Ho. How could you forget? Let's see if he catches on:

Back at Sen. Landrieu's office, someone was suspicious of the O'Keefe group and called police. The men were arrested and are now charged with a federal felony of something called tampering with a federal phone line .... Meanwhile, no charges against those thugs with the clubs at the polling place.

Alright, it looks like I'm going to have to do the heavy lifting here.
Let me make it as simple as possible so everyone gets it:

O'Keefe and his crew are masters of disguise. Sure they had this one case where their telephone repairmen outfits raised some suspicion. But this was on purpose...stay with me.

Until now, nobody (except me) had noticed that O'Keefe and Giles disguised themselves as Black Panthers with nightsticks.

Take a look at the outfits. Over the top just like the Acorn Pimp and Ho, right? Right.
Doubtful still? Look at the pictures side by side:

compare 2.PNG

Now you see it, right?

This is simply brilliant. O'Keefe engineered both incidents to show how he is:

a. Charged with a crime as a conservative activist
b. Free as a bird with charges dismissed as a liberal thug

Great work O'Keefe.

Ben Stein, you're slipping buddy!

The senate hearing requested Holder to provide them with the records that detail why he dropped the charges. He and the justice dept refused to do so.

Upset Old Guy:

Ok, based on the apparent relative weight of the two "black panthers" that means Hanna is the skinny guy with the night stick. The woman has a future in Hollywood, she truly can play any role.

On another note, Steve Green is doing the best he can with what he's got. Until his masters give him new talking points he's going to be seeing racists in every post. Of course that leaves him sort of stuck on stupid, but that's what he's got and that's what he's going to do. He's good at that.

SCSIwuzzy:

Steve,
It was in Philly. And they were not hired security guards. Jerry Jackson was, and is, and elected Philadelphia Democratic Comittee member, and a registered poll watcher.
He has an interesting way of watching the polls...

"Intimidation outside of a polling place is contrary to the democratic process," said Acting Assistant Attorney General Grace Chung Becker. "The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was passed to protect the fundamental right to vote and the Department takes allegations of voter intimidation seriously."


According to the complaint, party Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz confirmed that the placement of Samir Shabazz and Jackson in Philadelphia was part of a nationwide effort to deploy New Black Panther Party members at polling locations on Election Day. The complaint alleges a violation of Section 11(b) of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which prohibits intimidation, coercion or threats against "any person for voting or attempting to vote." The Department seeks an injunction preventing any future deployment of, or display of weapons by, New Black Panther Party members at the entrance to polling locations.


But you're right Steve, nothing like race baiting. Just ask Jerry Jackson and King Shabaaz...

They verbally assault inter-racial couples, call several woman "white, dirty, cracker, whore, bitches," and tells their followers "your gonna have to kill some crackers" and "you gonna have to kill some of they babies."

I followed this story back when it happened and that is bullshit. Just plain lying, racist bullshit. There we re no reports that showed they "threatened any voter who did not vote for Barack Obama".

In all of your big-time following of this story, you missed this one:

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/brad-wilmouth/2009/06/03/fncs-oreilly-interivews-liberal-attorney-who-witnessed-black-panther-

Take it or leave it, but it's certainly a "report." It's a report that shows the Black Panthers "threatened" many a "voter who did not vote for Barack Obama."

The lawsuit in question referenced the affidavit of Bartle Bull about voter intimidation. Affidavits may have great credibility; they may have little. This "report" was thought important enough to be included in the federal lawsuit. The point is that the feds won the case against the Black Panther thugs. And then, the Obama administration threw the case out. So much for democracy, comrades. The country is under the control of Steve Green, bryanDolt, et al. Enjoy

Nowhere on the page you linked to was there any evidence whatsoever that any voters were questioned about who they were voting for, or that a voter who did not vote for Obama was threatened.

Racist bullshitters lie about facts to support their racist views.

go to the link iwog posted and see for yourself. Obama's name isn't even mentioned in the account - and nowhere in any report I've seen is there anyone stating that voters were questioned and threatened with harm if they didn't vote for Obama.

But lying racists want you to believe that's the case.

Steve Green, you are absolutely correct. I read this part:

O'REILLY: Well, what were they screaming, though?

BULL: I heard, well, one of them, for example, screamed, "Now you will see what it is like to be ruled by the black man cracker."

and I jumped to the irrational conclusion that the Black Panthers were trying to intimidate white voters.

Steve Green:

"What was I thinking? "

Clearly you weren't thinking - you were lying. At least you've admitted that you were lying - so thanks for that.

At not time were voters threatened with harm if they didn't vote for Obama.

But that's what liar Ben Stein wrote and was quoted above, and repeated despite the fact that it's a lie.

Racists frequently lie in an attempt to support their bigotry.

GarandFan:

Breaking news: The US Attorney assigned to the O'Keefe case has just recused himself. No reason was given for the recusal. Could it be because O'Keefe sat in jail for 28 hours without access to an attorney? How long did it take the US Attorney's office to get the diaper bomber a mouthpiece?

In his post #21, GarandFan asked: " How long did it take the (Democratic potty-activist posing as a United States Attorney) to get the diaper bomber a mouthpiece?"

FIFTY MINUTES!

But never never never forget that every Democratic potty-activist -- like Sgreen, say -- and including and perhaps especially every one of those pretending to the post of "United States Attorney," is himself always (lizard-brain-stem instinctively) effectively and as often as not actually allied to every one of our beloved fraternal republic's enemies.

Steve,
So where's your evidence that Jackson and Shabaaz were paid security guards? Which, BTW, in Philly is the job of the police. The police that showed up when people reported uniformed men with clubs at the polling station's door. Uniformed men with clubs yelling at people.
Also, where is the arguement that refutes the video, or explains how that is OK behaivor.

Funny stuff. But it makes me wonder how many of the misspelled signs at the tea parties were intentional, and the protesters holding them acting like rednecks on purpose...
