I see little different in confronting people while they are engaged in their PRIVATE business. This is an escalation of what was already being done but go ahead and excuse your hero O'Keefe.

All of this needs to stop - it's harrassment and it's wrong.

Journalistic attempts at revealing public wrongdoing are not the same thing as facilitating harassment of those whose only crime is representing the opposing political party.

Just stating the obvious.

Nice attempt at diversion by false equivalency though. What else ya got?

Yes, like Shirley Sherrod etc. but, hey, why point out the hypocrisy.

Now back to the (selective) outrage du-jour.

Phoney outrage is a Prog thing. But very well, if you would like to suggest your phoney outrage over Sherrod has some equivalency to the many cases of Prog harassment of the innocent by posting home addresses let's look at it.

First of all that wasn't O'Keefe which I believe was your original point. That one didn't work so now you wish to divert further by doubling down, and going elsewhere.

Very well, blogger Andrew Breitbart had been sent a partial video of a no-name official speaking at an NAACP rally. At the time there was an issue with the NAACP race-baiting. Breitbart wished to show the hypocrisy. He showed the partial video, making the point that the NAACP appeared to be cheering a portion of the speech where no-name (Sherrod) appeared to be saying "get whitey". In his post he also made the point that Sherrod later redeemed herself by seeing the wrong in her attitude, and doing the right thing in that situation. His problem was with the apparent approval of the NAACP audience when the "get whitey" comment was first made.

However, the reaction to this was to miss the point of NAACP hypocrisy, and make it about Shirley Sherrod who was fired from her government post as a result of that mistaken reaction. You, of course, are outraged by Breitbart who was actually a victim of Mainstream Media diversion. It is to laugh.

OK, now you would like to make an equivalency to that, and posting video of innocent people's homes. There have been many cases of unwarranted harassment from the Prog horde of zombie-bots as a result of similar practice in the past. In the case of Breitbart, even if his intent was to initiate harassment (which there's no evidence of) the harmed person was not even the target of his journalistic, and justified critique. There is no equivalency here. To attempt one is just a diversion.

What else ya got?

Wow. It's amazing the excuses you guys will come up with to avoid owning your own bad behavior

In other words when challenged with facts you must fall back on the Prog technique, of issuing unsupportable insults. It's all you've got.

The fact remains the Prog policy of harassment through public posting of an enemies address, phone number, employer, family, or just a video of the opposition's home is unacceptable, and has no real equivalency right to left. I say "no", because you've yet to find one. However, I'll help you a little, because finding an equivalency appears to be important to you.

There are a few milder cases of right publicly posting private information of the individuals of the left. The odd case does exist. Find those if you want to make an accurate case for equivalency. Make a reasonable case, and I'll discuss it reasonably with you.

I'm not going to help you find them, but I'll tell you this. They're still not the same thing, as the left against right cases. Near as I can recall nobody has ever been harmed, or actually endangered as they have been with the many left against right cases of harassment by public posting of private information.

In general though, and either way, publicly posting videos of your enemies home, his address, or his phone number is childish, dangerous, and should be illegal.

Let's pretend you have a point (even though you don't). Are you saying Prog harassment techniques like say SWATing (spoofing a guy's phone number in a call to 911, and making a false claim of a murder at the home in order to send a SWAT team to his address) are now acceptable? That's what you're talking about when you're talking about publicly posting private home information. Just ask Democrat operatives Bret Kimberlin, or Neil Rauhauser.

Bullsh*t, both sides are doing it. Just GOPrs got the head start.
Come off the high horse cloud.
I have zero sympathy for these loser republican congressmen after seeing so many hate videos against democrats on youtube.
Can't take the heat-go out and eat.

Bullsh*t right back at you. Prove it. I'll show you right wing new-media types being SWATed by the left. Show me right to left. There is a case of a lefty getting SWATed, but it's generally accepted it was one of his own doing it.

In any case, are you saying the feelings you have towards O'keefe excuses harassment techniques such as SWATing? Yes, or no.
