James O’Keefe claims in his latest Project Veritas video to have “infiltrated antifa” in response to widespread violent protests over the death of George Floyd. What the right-wing fraudster fails to note, though, is that the scene where he claimed to film the supposed sting operation is a Portland bookstore that closed two years ago. O’Keefe labeled “Project Eye Gouge” as “breaking” on Twitter, claiming that it documents a meeting of Rose City Antifa, a Leftist Portland group, in the bookstore In Other Words, which closed in 2018. The bookstore served as the fictional setting of a well-known Portlandia comedy sketch, “Feminist Bookstore.” Fox News, The Washington Times, The Epoch Times, Russia Today, and other outlets picked up the story with apparently few doubts of O’Keefe’s claims.
