A secretive group of conservatives in the entertainment industry, the Friends of Abe, hosted rightwing conman James O'Keefe at Eamonn's Bar & Grill in New York on Sunday. Past Undercurrent collaborator Ryan Clayton attended and taped his remarks.
During the Q&A segment of the talk, Clayton sang a roast of O'Keefe, and was subsequently attacked by several people in the audience, as reported by The Huffington Post. Another progressive activist, Jason Charter was also assaulted. Both men were hospitalized and have filed charges including assault, strangulation, and robbery. (Attendees broke Charter's tie camera and stole his wallet, glasses, and cell phone.)
Although Charter's camera was broken, Clayton's was not, and he was able to capture some colorful comments. O'Keefe claims outrage over legitimate sexual misconduct questions posed by both Clayton and me during our Jan. 5 counter sting, questions about CNN reporter Abby Boudreau and former Project Veritas employee Nadia Naffe. But during the FOA event, he slammed political correctness and made a racist anal sex joke involving the alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos. Here's the clip:
