Turns out, lunatic liberalism pays really well these days. Groups in several states are paying liberals thousands of dollars per month to professionally protest. As the Washington Times notes:
Donald Trump may have a point about paid protesters: Job ads running in more than 20 cities offer $2,500 per month for agitators to demonstrate at this week’s presidential inauguration events.
Demand Protest, a San Francisco company that bills itself as the “largest private grassroots support organization in the United States,” posted identical ads Jan. 12 in multiple cities on Backpage.com seeking “operatives.”
“Get paid fighting against Trump!” says the ad.
“We pay people already politically motivated to fight for the things they believe. You were going to take action anyways, why not do so with us!” the ad continues. “We are currently seeking operatives to help send a strong message at upcoming inauguration protests.”
The job offers a monthly retainer of $2,500 plus “our standard per-event pay of $50/hr, as long as you participate in at least 6 events a year,” as well as health, vision and dental insurance for full-time operatives.
Remember when liberals screaemd that the Tea Party was “astroturf? Seems like a long time ago.
“For liberals, this has to be a dream come true. It’s a shower optional opportunity to leave your mother’s basement in whatever casual wear suits you and scream about how unfair your life is with other likeminded adult children, drug addicts, and Trustafarians.
Who’s behind all of this? It reeks of George Soros, but none of this has been confirmed. We’ll have more information on this story as it develops.
