Cuomo Sics Bureaucracy on James O’Keefe’s Project VeritasÂ (Moonbattery)
Even as Dinesh D’Souza is called back to New York toÂ surrender himself to authoritiesÂ for alleged campaign finance violations that areÂ regarded as misdemeanorsÂ when committed by Democrats, the state’sÂ terrifyingly fascisticÂ governor isÂ lowering the bureaucratic boomÂ on Project Veritas, which has earned liberal enmity by exposing the moral rot that characterizes the Left:
Conservative activist James O’Keefe is accusing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration of targeting his group with document requests and a subpoena, claiming the Democratic governor’s recent comments critical of conservatives “aren’t simply words.”
O’Keefe, whose Project Veritas is behind a series of hidden-camera investigations against left-leaning groups and causes, made the claims on the heels of the controversy over a recent Cuomo interview. In it, Cuomo blasted “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay” and said they “have no place” in New York. …
O’Keefe claimed that Cuomo’s government is acting on those words, revealing that the Department of Labor has hit his office in Westchester County, N.Y., with demands for financial documents for months. …
If there is one guy the Obama Administration has really wanted to shut up, it is Dinesh D’Souza. Not only is D’Souza among the mostÂ articulate advocates of conservatismÂ out there, he is a particular thorn in Obama’s side due to his own Third World background and the understanding it has given him of Obama’s alarmingÂ anti-neocolonialist ideology.

The U.S. is becoming increasingly lawless whenÂ Dinesh D’Souza is targetedÂ and the likes of Malik Obama and Lois Lerner are protected, despite the former having ties to terrorism and the latter is implicated as an accessory by retroactively backdating the 501(c)(3) status of a man who happens to be the half-brother of the President.
“Governor Cuomo’s shocking words this past week aren’t simply words,” O’Keefe said in a statement. “Governor Cuomo and the New York Department of Labor are on a witch hunt, demanding all documents and financials since our founding. … His goal, of course, is to harass us and limit our effectiveness by tying us up in court. Just like President Obama used the IRS to target and suppress conservatives, Governor Cuomo is using his Department of Labor to do the same exact thing.”
The bigger government becomes, the easier it is for goons like Cuomo to crush anyone they regard as opposition with the sheer weight of the bureaucracy. O’Keefe will be made to pay for the damage he inflicted on Obama’sÂ alma materÂ ACORN by exposing its eagerness to help him set up brothels staffed by illegal alien children.Tyrants aren’t tempered by dissent; they crush it.
Downunder, the totalitarians cannot wait to put us into the gulags, while they help themselves to the fleshpots of other peoples labour:
The new McCarthyists should not be subsidised by taxpayers.Â Nor should fools unable to distinguish rational, conservative democrats from genocidal Nazi totalitarians.

When such a featherhead is in a position of influence, able to advance or retard reputations and careers at the stroke of a pen, a closer look is warranted… In this instance the individual is Peter Minter. poetry editor and academic, whose pulpit for proclaiming on the moral worth of lesser mortals is that little-read and much-subsidised quarterly Overland, “the most radical of Australia’s long-standing literary journals.” Â Andrew Bolt has more
