Outing communists is now officially legal.
Project Veritas has been on a veritable spree, uncovering massive amounts of corruption and Jew communist infiltration in all levels of government and corporate organizations.
Unfortunately, various laws are on the books protecting these scumbags. But on Monday, a court has just ruled these laws unconstitutional.
This means that Project Veritas can now target a whole new class of organizations for their investigative work.
A federal judge ruled Monday that the Massachusetts law barring the secret recording of government officials is unconstitutional.
The ruling was applied to a pair of First Amendment lawsuits from opposite ends of the political spectrum.
On one side were two local activists who sought more protections in their efforts to secretly record police officers, while on the other end was conservative activist James O’Keefe and his organization Project Veritas, which planned to secretly record Democratic public officials in order to embarrass them.
I can’t believe there’s still liberal retards who are interested in filming cops. Haven’t they learned from the bodycam fiasco?
Activists wanted cops to have bodycams in order to curb “police brutality” and get evidence against the police when they shot good boys who didn’t do nuffin’.
Of course, what instead happened was that the bodycam footage almost always showed that the cops were in the right. Since then, pro-Black activists have actually back tracked and are pushing to abolish police cameras.
Either way, this is yet another case of “agreeing with the liberals for all the wrong reasons.”
“On the core constitutional issue, the Court holds that secret audio recording of government officials,including law enforcement officials, performing their duties in public is protected by the First Amendment, subject only to reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions,” Chief U.S. District Judge Patti Saris wrote in a 44-page ruling.
The 1968 Massachusetts wiretap law criminalizes secret audio recordings, and has been used to arrest and prosecute people for secretly recording police officers performing their duties in public. Both the Boston Police Department and the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office have pursued criminal action under the state law against individuals for secretly recording police officers performing their duties in public.
O’Keefe, who infamously caused the defunding of the liberal community-organizing group ACORN in 2009 through the use of edited hidden camera footage, wants to bring his organization Project Veritas to Boston to nab local politicians talking about its status as a sanctuary city.
Before his cameras could start rolling, Project Veritas unsuccessfully sought an injunction in 2016 against the Massachusetts wiretapping statute to avoid violating the law.
Despite losing the injunction, O’Keefe is now able to celebrate the court win.
“Project Veritas has made First Amendment history. With the summary judgment in this case being entered in our favor, PVA v. Conley becomes the first case in United States history to hold that secretly recording government officials is protected by the First Amendment,” O’Keefe said in a prepared statement.
James O’Keefe’s work has had a major influence on the national conversation, and has certainly been effective at influencing conservative leaning normies. The fact that he now has a freer reign to conduct his operations means we’re going to be seeing more good stuff coming out of Project Veritas.
More generally, stuff like this makes our enemies feel fear. By giving them the idea that they could be under surveillance at any time, and that everyone they meet could be one of our undercover agents, it severely restricts their actions.
