Youtube Doc on James O'Keefe & Project Veritas
« on: June 05, 2020, 05:11:12 am »
Youtuber Timbah on Toast has 2 parts out currently, and I think more is on the way. It's much in the same vein as his past series on Dave Rubin going through a conservative figures past. I'd say both are worth the watch even though the subjects are infuriating and painfully cringeworthy individuals (I genuinely had to pause these several times to wince).

These videos are good at showing what O'Keefe is like and actually had a LOT about him that I didn't remember that just made him even skeevier. Early on in the second part there's a really telling moment wear O'Keefe met Andy Bichlbaum (a prankster and activist known for his group called The Yes Men who O'Keefe cites as an inspiration for his own publicity stunts) and Andy gives him a look of disgust and tells him that what he did had hurt people when he introduces himself as the guy who did the ACORN/Planned Parenthood "sting" videos.

Now, a rational person may be hurt by one of their heroes feeling disdain towards but also may self-reflect on if maybe they really did do something wrong.

James however is not a rational person. After Andy leaves, he freaks the fuck out and decides that actually Bichlbaum is an "agenda driven ideoloue" which just might be the single most ironic thing I've ever heard. l am genuinely in awe at this mans abilities in psychological projection and narcissism.


In all, this is very educational on one of the major figures that caused the Republicans and the right in general to be shaped the way it currently is. He normalized in the collective conscious things like pedo witch hunts, planned parenthood being racist, and fake news tactics generally. Dude's basically the OG Pizzagate weirdo. He was Jacob Wohl while Jacob Wohl was still a child.
