Filmmaker Dresses as ‘Ebola-Infected ISIS Terrorist’ to Sneak Across Lake Erie

David Martosko, Daily Mail (London), September 8, 2014

An Ebola-infected ISIS terrorist could easily motorboat across Lake Erie and reach Ohio from Canada, according to an American conservative filmmaker who videotaped a fictionalized one-jihadi incursion across Lake Erie and released the footage Monday.

‘On the eve of the 9/11 anniversary our man, dressed as an ISIS terrorist was able to cross Lake Eris, walk off a boat into Cleveland, Ohio–and into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,’ guerrilla documentarian James O’Keefe narrates.

‘At no point did anyone even question [him] or ask him what he was carrying in his suspicious brown duffel bag.’

O’Keefe’s latest online provocation comes at a time when the world’s attention is focused on the self-professed Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) and Americans are growing increasingly concerned about the danger the group could pose to the US.

His video shows a black-clad jihadi with a British accent being ferried across Lake Erie, which separates Ohio from the Canadian province of Ontario.

‘The British government says American journalist James Foley’s ISIS assassin was an Englishman,’ O’Keefe says in his narration.

‘British intelligence believes more than 500 British citizens have joined ISIS. Brits can enter Canada without a visa; it’s virtually an open door.’

In the short gonzo documentary, O’Keefe meets up with a ‘terrorist’ who has hired a boat to bring him from Ontario to the middle of Lake Erie. The two exchange pleasantries as the pretend jihadi transfers to O’Keefe’s American-piloted craft.

‘On August 17 we stole Ebola from a lab in Liberia,’ he says in the script. ‘We took he bandages and the bedsheets and then we covered ourselves in it and hoped that we’d get infected.

‘The incubation period is about 21 days, and it’s been about–21 days.’

O’Keefe, a confirmed rabble-rousing video activist, last made national noise in August with a video showing how an Islamist terrorist–dressed as Osama bin Laden, no less–could wade across the Rio Grande River from Mexico to the U.S. without being detected.

‘We went to Texas and saw little border security,’ he told MailOnline on Monday; ‘now we’ve discovered there’s even less border security on the Canadian border.’

His jihadi character in this latest video also carries with him a container marked ‘ricin.’

Playing the part to the hilt, the actor points to a fresh-water intake port that serves the Cleveland, Ohio metropolitan area, and tells O’Keefe, ‘The water supply is over there. If we put it in there, it will kill a lot of Americans.’

Staring into the camera, O’Keefe clarifies that the terrorist, his ricin and his Ebola-soaked linens are make-believe–but warns that ‘anyone can cross this border. You could cross in a Jet-Ski if you wanted to.’

‘You could import weapons, you could import whatever you wanted to, because there’s no detection on our borders.’

O’Keefe told MailOnline that ‘the only coast guard vessels we saw were tied up at their docks.’

‘One of the boat captains expressed his own concern about border security,’ he said, ‘and worried that perhaps the Great Lakes are the soft underbelly of America.’

  • OTOH, you can’t get more diverse than an Ebola-infected ISIS fighter.

      Give them a few days to incubate and they will be like this.

    He’s right that the water border on the Great Lakes is completely insecure. Very briefly after 9/11 there were the (mythical) black helicopters that would follow a boat briefly, but that’s all been forgotten now. And in over a decade of constant boating on Lake Erie I never saw the Coasties except at their station on the Detroit River. The problem of course is in entering Canada versus entering Mexico. I’d think a terrorist would find it easier to enter from the south given his ability to blend in with existing constant traffic and better availability of weapons via the cartels. The reason our Northern border is so insecure is that there are essentially zero Canadians trying to sneak in illegally and little smuggling activity.

      This is basically a silly stunt – the worry about terrorists coming in through Mexico is vastly more justified than through Canada.

      • Doomispixulated

        We have quite a bit of enrichment up here in the “great white” north I’m afraid.

      • Holden

        He did a similar thing on the southern border very recently, dressed up as Osama bin Laden.

  • Easyrhino

    The “war on terror” is a financial scam against the American tax-payer.

    If there was really a war on terror the border wouldn’t be so porous that even pregnant Mexican girls can simply waddle across the border to give birth to their new US citizen child.

    Instead the corrupt brain trust in DC is spending tens of billions of your tax-dollars with the MIC fighting the latest bogie man they can create in the ME.

    You’re being conned!

      Yep, too bad so few on the right see this, they are always so guillable and easily whipped up into a frenzy to go attack the next Arab boogeyman, meanwhile some MS-13 gang member comes up behind them and slits their throat and rapes their wife and daughter.

    In an ethno-state it would be very easy to spot most of the trouble-makers because most would not look like the local population. Another problem with diversity.

    • Periapsis

      Indeed, if not their appearance then their accent, mannerisms and other behaviors will tip off the native population they’re outsiders and trouble makers. American spies were caught by the Nazis because of the way they held a knife and fork. A Soviet agent was captured because he didn’t know the outcome of a well publicized ball game. A homogeneous white ethnostate would be a very difficult place for hostile racial and religious aliens to avoid being noticed.

      • Some of the Soviet spies were caught after they put “Nation Geographic” magazines in their trash. Yanks don’t do that.

  • BernieGoetzFan

    A much deadlier poison than Ricin and Ebola is already here. It is about 13% of “our” population and can be found in almost all the major cities. It kills many more of our people than any Muslim terrorist.
    Maybe ISIS will attack Detroit and Atlanta and do us a favor?

    I’ll bet these “Brits” are about as British as I am Japanese.

  • Anyone with power tools and half a clue can make a firearm. Did you know that 3/4-inch inside-diameter seamless steel tubing will safely chamber 12-gauge shotgun shells? The Hukbalahap communists in the Philippines were notorious for making (and then using) fully-automatic home-made shotguns. The only thing better than an automatic shotgun at short range is either a flamethrower or else a satchel of hand grenades and an axe.

    Ever seen a STEN gun? It looks like junk. In fact, it is junk, but it works. As you have pointed out, the idea of smuggling guns into the United States, the country with more military firearms in civilian hands than any army currently stocks is silly, and we’re pretty smart here. I’m not John Browning, but I made my first gun when I was 15, a 12-gauge pistol. I later used to keep it under the dashboard of my car. The feds never officially took it into inventory, and I was never charged for possession of an unregistered short-barreled shotgun, so I assume someone kept it. I made it in case my ex-father beat up my mother again. Getting ammo before the age of 18 was difficult. My poor mother found it and I had to face the music. Ironically, she actually called my ex-father and had him drive over because she was flipping out over – as she called it – the “murdering gun”. It obviously was not intended for hunting.

    He said “That looks like .75 caliber.” and then became quiet.

    Anyone with about $200 can gut a military surplus gun at a garage sale if they’re too stupid or lazy to make one.

      Americans have great gun rights. No reason to make your own guns, bombs that you’ll never use and would be crucified if you did.

      Here is my recommendation

      22 plinker rifle for target practice, shooting varmints, teaching children.

      12 gauge shot gun, better a wood look for hunting and self defense, avoid add ins that make it look like terrorist, don’t saw off to illegal lengths.

      Revolver hand gun – 38 Smith and Wesson, keep the first chamber blank so you don’t worry about shooting off your private parts.

      Avoid military type guns that just cause bad attention.

      That’s all any solid White guy needs.

      And learn to fight without guns. Get in to some fistfights with your idiot Lib, Leftist relatives or worse know it all Libertarians.

    Nonsense. This is great propaganda and gives the English/Brits a deserved Black eye for letting nasty Paki Islamic extremism, child rapists flourish in not so Merry Old England.
