Conservative Agent Provocateur Tries To Get Blacks to Demand Cops Murder

March 30, 2015

This is another piece from The Young Turks about Conservatives infiltrating Left-wing protests in order to provoke them into violence. James O’Keeffe is an, ahem, ‘Documentary film-maker’, who specialises in making films designed to bring down left wing causes. He was one of those, who brought down the ACORN charity organisation. His most recent smear campaign was against a Black protest march organised Al Sharpton. O’Keeffe hired Richard Valdez, who in turn tried to arrange a Muslim, Mohammed Alhomsi, to join the protest. Alhomsi was given a script, in which he was to call for the murder of the cops. Alhomsi, however, had more integrity than his employers, and refused on the grounds that he didn’t want to do anything that would reflect badly on Blacks, Muslims, or himself, or jeopardise his residence in America. Valdez then had to pass this along to O’Keeffe, who reacted accordingly, with the result that Valdez is now suing his former employer.

As so many have done in the past. O’Keeffe has a long history of being sued by former collaborators and employees, as well as for having absolutely zero journalistic ethics. nevertheless, O’Keeffe’s wretched films are still somehow being used by other Conservative media outlets in the Land of the Free.

I’ve reblogged this, as it was put up about ten days ago. As I said in my previous post, it looks like the goons in SNP masks, who jostled Miliband, were Tories trying to cause trouble. This comes shortly after The Young Turks’ report on O’Keeffe, so I wonder if someone at a Conservative Club somewhere had a brainstorm, and rather than keeping away from tactics like O’Keeffe’s, actually thought they were a good idea instead.

Conservative Agent Provocateurs at Occupy DC in America and in SNP Masks Britain

March 30, 2015

Mike put up on his blog a few days ago a piece about a group of goons, who hassled Ed Miliband while wearing SNP masks. He’s convinced that the group of seven weren’t Scots Nationalists, but Tories wishing to make a bit of aggro, while making equally sure their own party doesn’t get the blame. Well, tough luck with that.

In fact, the use of agent provocateurs to cause trouble seems to be another tactic the Tories have learned from the Repugs over in America. This is another piece from The Young Turks from way back in 2011, reporting on how Patrick Howley of the American Spectator infiltrated an Occupy DC protest to encourage them to break through the security chain around the Smithsonian Museum. They didn’t; he did. He was the only one to break through, and actually confessed in the pages of the magazine to having infiltrated the Occupy protest in order to cause trouble.

The American Spectator is a right-wing magazine with an absolutely minuscule circulation, at least as far as American publications go. It also seems to have been something of a home for Conservative nutters. It was the magazine that was behind the ‘Clinton Crazies’ when Bill Clinton was president, running articles alleging that Slick Willy had murdered 21 of his aides, as well as importing cocaine into American through a secret airfield in Arizona, among other daft conspiracy theories. It was classic ‘tin foil’ hat stuff, which one of the journalists involved said a little while ago now was completely wrong. It doesn’t seem to have stopped them acting like idiots, however.
