AIM's Resident Coward Defends James O'Keefe
Topic: Accuracy in Media

"Jonah Knox" -- the man who hides behind a pseudonym because he's too cowardly to put his real name behind his Obama-hate and right-wing smears -- resurfaces yet again at Accuracy in Media, this time in defense mode.

The subject of "Knox's" ardor is none other than discredited videographer James O'Keefe, coming in the wake of his weird, creepy attempted stunt against CNN. "Knox" takes O'Keefe's defense at face value:

James O’Keefe deserved our support in the face of the CNN assault against him. Some time to review what happened—and what did not happen—was needed. He had put himself on the line for conservatism and yet when CNN ran a story accusing him of planning to do something that he never did, some conservatives quickly abandoned him.


As it stands now, by siding with conservatives and putting his neck on the line for the conservative cause, he is isolated with few friends. The mistreatment of O’Keefe is not the way to encourage more young conservatives to engage in journalism. It is another sad chapter in the story of how conservatives play defense, in order to score “integrity” points with liberals, when an offense is required.

It's not a good sign when O'Keefe's biggest defender in the media is afraid to show himself in public and is too cowardly to give us his real name.

"Knox" then quickly devolved into what is apparently one of his favorite pastimes, hating gays:

“Right on the Edge” had featured Ryan Sorba, labeled an “anti-gay” activist by CNN, as he encountered far-left homosexual demonstrators who had gathered in Illinois outside a church to protest Peter LaBarbera’s Truth Academy event to tell the truth about the dangerous health hazards of the homosexual lifestyle. CNN made it seem like Sorba, a young conservative leader, was a polarizing figure making outrageous claims.

In fact, as AIM editor Cliff Kincaid points out, Sorba was friendly to the demonstrators, offered them sodas and water, and had wanted to engage in a dialogue with them. They reacted with anger, rage, and name-calling. Kincaid also spoke at the Truth Academy and was at the demonstration, taking pictures and talking to the protesters. Film footage captured the fact that one gay protester expressed the hope that Kincaid might get hit by a car. The anti-conservative demonstration was organized by the Gay Liberation Network in Chicago, a group run by a Trotskyite communist.

So gays are all commies too? Sheesh.

Insistence on embarrassing himself like that may be one reason "Knox" doesn't want people to know who he is.
