The guy who released edited videos of conversations with Planned Parenthood officials was received as a conquering hero by ALEC conference participants at the San Diego meeting.

The Guardian reports:

David Daleiden held court among conservative legislators and lobbyists in San Diego like a messenger of Hades, detailing how he had infiltrated the enemy, tricked the “abortion industry” and exposed its “body-harvesting” secrets to the world.

“For the first time, all of the American public, and the whole world, is getting to see the truth about Planned Parenthood’s abortion services,” he said on Thursday. “There is a lot more to come.”

The American Legislative Exchange Council (Alec), one of the country’s most controversial and powerful lobbying networks, greeted the 26-year-old activist, dressed in a black suit and shirt with no tie, as a conquering hero.

Lying liar, he is. Greeted by more liars and Kochheads.

“I think it’s incredible what he’s done,” said Debbie Bearden, a Missouri activist. Pam Peterson, a Republican member of the Oklahoma house of representatives, said the “brutality” exposed in the videos should trigger public outrage. “Are we any better than Nazi Germany when we can say this is all right?”

Daleiden, who is based in Orange County, just north of San Diego, was composed and articulate as he fielded questions between sips of Guinness and nibbles from a cheese board.

There were lots more videos and between 100 to 200 pages of documents from Planned Parenthood and its “proxies” which his group, the Center for Medical Progress, would soon release, he said.

Remember now, they're celebrating a guy who lied to the IRS about his reasons for creating a non-profit, fraudulently secured that status, and then deceptively edited video to make those conversations look like something they weren't. Then he timed their release to coincide with the budget resolution debate on Planned Parenthood as well as the start of Netroots Nation, so that most rapid response teams wouldn't be available to react in real time.

This is who they celebrate, and they dare to claim pro-choice advocates are Nazis?
