Paranoia-Rama: Fake News And Fox News

Not content with just spreading birther conspiracy theories about the president, at least one far-right broadcaster is now looking into whether Michelle Obama is lying about her gender, while conservative “investigator” James O’Keefe blows his latest operation.

'God's On Our Side': Alex Jones Hails Discredited Right Wing Activist James O'Keefe

James O’Keefe, the right-wing activist best known for his discredited attacks against the community service group ACORN, his failed attempt to break into then-Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office and recent laughable effort to manufacture a Hillary Clinton campaign finance scandal, is now directing his attacks at companies involved with Common Core, an academic standards effort with supporters and critics on both sides of the aisle.

Naturally, O’Keefe found a receptive audience in Alex Jones, speaking with the InfoWars broadcaster yesterday about his latest set of “sting” videos.

“We’re in a war,” Jones said, claiming that “the real battle for the republic” is in the homeland because “America is being taken down.”

“God’s on our side,” he told O’Keefe. “There is Providence. George Washington talked about it. But we have to get on the field. But when we get on the field, everything we do turns to gold.” He continued to pour out praise of O’Keefe, praising the activist for trying to stop liberals from taking over the U.S. and turning it into a Third World nation.

O’Keefe, who once likened his group’s activists to SEAL Team Six, said that while he wasn’t comparing himself to military service members, “I do think that people need to risk their lives domestically” to save America. He then insisted that he has been detained several times by the Department of Homeland Security and has gone “through hell doing this work.”

James O'Keefe Says Liberals 'Using the Government' to 'Destroy' Him, Urges Conservatives to 'Get Some Balls'

Conservative activist James O’Keefe, who specializes in making secret video recordings and then dishonestly editing them to attack groups and people he doesn’t like, claims that he is “feared and hated and attacked in a very nasty way” by liberals who “don’t play nice” and want to “destroy” him “using the government.”

In an interview on Eagle Forum Live with Phyllis Schlafly’s niece Anne Cori this weekend, O’Keefe lamented that his fellow conservatives are “afraid to be effective because to be effective is to be hated.”

Asked if he had any advice for struggling activists, the ever-humble O’Keefe responded: “To speak frankly: Get some balls.”

O’Keefe: I think the problem with the Right, the Right – that is, the conservatives – they don’t like blood in the water. I mean that in a figurative sense. They don’t like shaking things up. They’re afraid to be effective because to be effective is to be hated. One of the things that Rush Limbaugh said, I can’t remember where he said it, but he said, ‘You have to understand that when people hate you and fear you, it’s a sign of respect. And I think it’s impossible to be effective as a conservative without being feared and hated and attacked in a very nasty way. These people don’t play nice, they don’t debate you. They try to destroy you using the government.

And I think people need to realize, the book ‘Breakthrough’ is about what one must go through in today’s society to speak truth to power. It’s very different than it used to be, I think.

Cori: Well, James, do you have advice for people who wilt in the face of criticism?

O’Keefe: Advice for them? To speak frankly: Get some balls.

James O'Keefe's 'Philosophy of War' Will Teach You How to Fight the 'Soft Tyranny' of College

There are serious risks that come with reading James O’Keefe’s new book Breakthrough, but, on the other hand, if you don’t pick up a copy you will never learn O’Keefe’s “philosophy of war.” In an interview today with Chelsen Vicari of Concerned Women for America, O’Keefe discusses how he became engaged in politics to combat the “soft tyranny” of college and the “hostile professors and administrators” who didn’t appreciate his conservative views.

For example, O’Keefe mocked efforts to combat racism by “protesting” Lucky Charms as discriminatory against Irish-Americans. But that was just the beginning of his “David versus Goliath” battles against “billion dollar corporations like Planned Parenthood and ACORN.”

“The book is really a field manual, it’s a manifesto, it’s a philosophy of war,” O’Keefe humbly claims.
