The Henchman’s Award
An invitation to see James O’Keefe receive the Heartland Liberty Prize has been extended to me. Obviously The Heartland Institute doesn’t know who I am (I am a leftist) because there’s no way I’d pay a dime to attend a conservative fundraiser. The bigger question here though is, do they know who James O’Keefe is? Because the man has been repeatedly exposed as a fraud.

Mr. O’Keefe makes gotcha videos and he knows that even if the headlines eventually read “Video showing corruption at XYZ was deceptively edited” his intended audience will still vaguely remember “Video showed corruption at XYZ.” I’ll just mention that he has paid $100,000 in a legal settlement and pled guilty in federal court.

People aren’t cartoonish villains though, they are left wondering about the scars their actions have left on their souls. People ask god for salvation but without knowing what god even is. Hence we’re all looking for someone, anyone, to save us and we’re so desperate that it might just be a devil that answers our pleas.
