Project Veritas

Project Veritas is a quasi political action group inaptly named after the Roman goddess of truth. You might remember them hiring everyone’s favorite contractor, Erik Prince, to spy on teachers. The leader of this band of miscreants is James O’Keefe.

Back in 2009 these clowns “infiltrated” Acorn, a housing program for the poor, and video taped their encounters. They posed as prostitutes and human smugglers. They then released heavily edited videos attempting to destroy the program cause lord knows we need more homeless. Weird thing is it worked; the politicians crapped themselves trying to distance themselves from Acorn and it ended up losing it’s funding. I think I remember a very important someone saving a prostitutes life once. Helping someone get off the street should help them get cleaned up and I don’t have a problem with my tax money being used for that. The “human smuggler” was reported to the police by the Acorn reps as soon as he left their office.

After investigations and lawsuits it turns out Acorn hadn’t violated any laws but Project Veritas had. “On June 14, 2010, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) published its report finding no evidence that ACORN, or any of its related organizations, had mishandled any of the $40 million in federal money which they had received in recent years.” Further “on March 5, 2013, O’Keefe agreed to pay $100,000 to former California ACORN employee Juan Carlos Vera for deliberately misrepresenting Mr. Vera’s actions, and acknowledged in the settlement that at the time he published his video he was aware that Vera had notified the police about the incident.”

Taking journalism to lows not seen since the rise of fascism in Europe, Project Veritas is now reporting that Antifa is encouraging violence in the protests related to the death of George Floyd. Antifa is the term used to describe various Anti Fascist groups. We already know the violence being encouraged was by white supremacists going undercover in the protests and attempting to escalate the violence. That is an attempt to undermine the meaning of the protests and message that “black lives matter.” Business Insider reports that white supremacists talked about shooting into a crowd to incite violence and a race war. Almost as if the Nazi propaganda machine was back in business, producing sensationalized populist bs to influence the masses.
