James O'Keefe punks Hollywood environmentalists

O'Keefe entraps Ed Begley Jr., actress Mariel Hemming, and director Josh Tickell by posing as Middle Eastern oil family to fund anti-fracking movie while disguising the source of funding.

Oh, that naughty James O'Keefe, putting the mental in environmentalism.

Breitbart Big Hollywood.

Love the comments, not the usual fare.

The Hollyweird enviro-nuts have been like this forever.

Like so much else about the Left, it's nice to see it exposed.

My father once told me a joke. I was maybe 8 or 9 years old.

It went like this: A Jewish man said to his young son, "Climb up on the refrigerator, here, jump off, and I will catch you."

The boy says, "But father, I am afraid I will fall."

"Nonsense," said the father, "I will catch you for you can always trust your father."

So the boy climbs up onto the refrigerator, jumps off, and falls to the floor below injuring himself and he begins to cry.

"Father, why?! Why did you let me fall?!"

The father scolded the boy in return: "It is your own fault. NEVER TRUST ANYONE!"

Eric the Fruit Bat said...

So, why a refrigerator?

Seems kind of weird, doesn't it?

Well, it made sense in context.

We were both standing in the kitchen at the time, beside the refrigerator.

Eric the Fruit Bat said...

So why a Jew?

Well, my father was kind of a bigot.

That should be "Hemingway". Descendant of the writer.

What's a Hemingway? About 150.

I think that is known as "speaking truth to power."

We need 1000 more independent undercover filmmakers just like this.

My goodness these Hollywood jerks really want to screw us over.

These rich a-holes have no idea what goes on in the real world outside of their elitist leftwing wealth-filled micro-bubble.

Calypso Facto said...

They're shallow hypocrites? No way! Do they burn wood in their fireplaces too??

Unknown said...

If they could, these Hollywood elites would live in their castles and dump their feces over the walls onto the peasants.

Stop the flush toilet revolution!

Can't wait to see how much the MSM covers this story! [sarc]

ndspinelli said...

They won't cover it.

ndspinelli said...

Fox will, then the MSM will attack.

ndspinelli said...

Just like the other videos.

ndspinelli said...

The MSM is "Smoke and mirrors."

If O'Keefe's antics were covered by main stream media then he would have more difficulty pulling them off. He goes unrecognized so he can keep doing similar things. It's not clear to me if he actually got up in an Arab outfit or had somebody else do that part. By all rights he should have been spotted.

There's no more pernicious doctrine than the end justifies the means. We're all shits. So when you tell a shit (which is to say, anyone) "Be a shit...for the cause," it's katy bar the door. Witness the speed with which these beautiful types agree to misrepresent their funding source.

Batty - How is it antisemitic to put the words "Never Trust Anyone" in the mouth of a Jew? Do YOU trust anyone? I don't.

To Catch a Predator
the intersection of ego and greed.

O'Keefe should consider doing this up like on To Catch a Predator where the mark shows up at the rendezvous point only to find the host asking ... uncomfortable ... questions. I guess it would ruin Act II and Act III (coming soon if past performance is precedence). It is truly astounding that none of these evil (yes, evil; little evils are still evils) people noticed the fakery of the set-up so eager they were for their next opportunity to serve themselves.

Eric the Fruit Bat said...

Do YOU trust anyone?

Of course I do. Some more than others and it depends on the situation.

I don't.

And you're a Jew, right?

Looks like I owe my father an apology.

ndspinelli said...

Chip, I'm fairly certain they used a Middle Easterner to play Mohammed. O'Keefe's undercover days are over. That's why I hid my identity obsessively.

rcocean said...

Its an old Jewish Joke.

Like most jokes.

Chip - it sounds like you've never been funded by someone who declined to assert creative control over your work.
