James O’Keefe, left, leaves the St. Bernard Parish jail in January after his arrest at U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office.
The four defendants who were arrested in January in Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office in the Hale Boggs federal complex in New Orleans pleaded guilty Wednesday morning in federal court to entering real property belonging to the United States under false pretenses.
Magistrate Judge Daniel Knowles III sentenced Stan Dai, Joseph Basel and Robert Flanagan each to two years probation, a fine of $1,500 and 75 hours of community service during their first year of probation.
James O’Keefe, as leader of the group and famous for posing as a pimp in ACORN office videos, received three years of probation, a fine of $1,500 and 100 hours of community service.
How did this all begin? How did this bratty, socially inept skank evolve into one of the most hated people in America today?
James O’Keefe is a home-grown white bigot from New Jersey. The online journal of his anti-social college years shows a skinny, juvenile, spoiled child who could not get along with anyone, mainly because of his racism.
From his diary:
My freshman year of college I was placed in a triple room on the second floor of Campbell. One of my roomates was gay. The other was just bizarre. Two months in I volunteered to leave and was put on an all-black, floor, the Paul Robeson floor, on Mettler 3 in November. I was placed with, no joke, an Indian midget named “Hashish” who smelled like shit. Then he transfered. I had a single. For the month of January, I never left my room. Then on Valentines day, the one year anniversary of James/Arielle, in came a greek kid named Paul. Paul was an absolute nightmare.
He took his racist rage out by having affirmative action bake sales at Rutgers University where he was attending school.
After College, O’Keefe was an intern at the Arlington, Virginia based conservative organization called the “Leadership Institute” where he hooked up and became pals with racist Marcus Epstein and attended a race based forum with known white supremacist Jared Taylor organized by Epstein.
O’Keefe was asked to leave Leadership Institute because they claim he was more into “activism” than political work. Epstein has since been charged with a felony assault hate crime on an African American woman while drunk in Georgetown DC.
Leadership Institute has since tried to scrub their organization of any connection to O’Keefe
Enter the Breitbart phase…
O’Keefe and the Hollywood hack Breitbart were a good fit.
Based in both bullshit and bigotry they executed a successful smear campaign against ACORN, a community activist group that helps African Americans get to the voting polls.
O’Keefe’s pimp campaign was found to be completely false yet the attack on the inner city organization was successful at causing it to fold.
Feeling his white privilege from getting away with the impact of a huge public lie, and no regard for law and decency, O’Keefe– still on the Breitbart payroll– but now it is a masked by a suspicious looking media firm who is asking for donations?
Veritas-Fucking Up the Truth
Obviously trying to be the next Richard Viguerie, this phishing site has very little to do with any actual “media” aside from O’Keefe’s latest joke to disgrace the census, which has fallen flat, even with the plug appearance on Good Morning America
If you navigate through O’Keefe’s laughable “media site” he claims:
Through Veritas, James O’Keefe will soon begin producing more explosive kinds of investigations and releasing them through the medias and on the Internet, and driving these stories into the consciousness of the public and lawmakers. A larger staff to help research, do advance work, film, edit, and work the media will make this part of his operation highly efficient and get more stories released, faster.
Veritas will also train an army of young people to use James’ techniques to uncover corruption and abuse of power in their own states. He already has a group of about 10 people who know how to do this, and in the coming two years will expand the number of trained individuals, and have them spread geographically all across the country.
One has to wonder if they have a seekrit hideout, decoder rings and dress-up henchmen uniforms?
Every other page is a request to fill out a contact form for the viewer’s personal information as well as a huge donate button.
Who donates to media firms?
Aren’t they supposed to be a business, not a beg-a-thon?
Oh, and the request to try to get people to fill out their personal information is a scam to collect names to market them for direct mailing lists, also not something a real media firm is likely to do.
To some this all up, we have found the best comment ever on Gawker about James O’Queef
I have the disquieting feeling that this little shit squib goes through life with the Mission Impossible theme playing endlessly in his fucking head.
With the properly-fitted tinfoil hat I’m sure the voices of all those nefarious ACORN people taunting him would go away and he could lead a fairly normal life, cleaning the shitters down at Burger King.
America’s the land of opportunity, James- even for deluded misfits like you
