Press Secretary for the White House Sean Spicer has read conservative’s minds when he told the press on Monday that the protestors that have sprung up over the recent executive travel ban are being paid.
Secretary Spicer went on a Fox News interview, where he further commented, “I mean, protesting has become a profession now.”
Spicer also went on to say, “They have every right to do that, don’t get me wrong, but I think that we need to call it what it is. It’s not these organic uprisings that we’ve seen through the last several decades. “
“The tea party was a very organic movement. This has become a very paid, Astroturf-type movement.”
Conservative news outlets and leaders in the conservative community have longed to hear this theory spoken into existence by a White House official. Rush Limbaugh recently ranted on his radio show about his confusion on why the disciples of the left would destroy Starbucks. “Isn’t it their [the liberals] home away from home?,” a perplexed Limbaugh said to his news audience.
Anti-Trump publications praised by the left such as Salon came out swinging in defense of Secretary Spicer’s comments.:
“When it comes to the claim that the protests were organized, yes, they were. Planning for the Jan. 21 Women’s March on Washington began almost immediately after Trump was elected. Small activist groups in places like New York and Chicago also began working their networks to mobilize people and plan protests like the ones we saw at the nation’s airports as a response to Trump’s immigration order. But saying a protest was aided by organization and coordination doesn’t make it less legitimate. “
Trump tweeted on February 3rd, perhaps foreseeing Spicer’s comments on destructive protestors: “Professional anarchists, thugs and paid protesters are proving the point of the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
Of course, those participating in the protests as well as those who support the protestors deny being “paid.”
Protestors who receive free travel, room and board, compensated meals and free protest materials hide under organization groups who are funded big bucks from donors like George Soros.
The Daily Caller reported that The Alliance For Global Justice, a financial sponsor for Refuse Fascism, is the communist group funded by Soros by incited violence when Milo Yiannopoulos went to speak at UC Berkeley.
Soros funds groups like The Alliance for Global Justice through his ‘progressive’ nonprofit, the Tides Foundation. Aside from giving Refuse Fascism, who led riots at UC Berkeley, $50,000, the Tides Foundation also gives money to other protest groups, concealed with the names ‘social activist groups’ or ‘progressive groups’.
The Tides Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) that directs grant money to politically liberal causes, also gave $2 million dollars to Wikipedia. The Left Exposed reports, “The ‘General Support’ grant was a blank check to encourage years of left-wing Wikipedia editing and administration to concentrate on sabotaging libertarian and conservative entries.”
“Last night, thousands of students, professors and others protested the appearance and organizing rally of Milo Yiannopoulos, a major fascist operative, shutting it down. This was righteous and much more like this is needed,” Refuse Fascism said in a post on their website.
“Let’s be clear: Milo Yiannopoulos is not engaging in ‘free speech.’ He is consciously spearheading the Nazification of the American University.”
Refuse Fascism does not deny using funds to fuel protests as long as it is in the name of social justice. The communist group also accepts donations and gives tax deductible receipts on its website. “Your donations are urgently needed to spread this message further as we join with and at times initiate actions against the outrages continually perpetrated by Trump, reaching out to others and sharing perspectives with them,” Refuse Fascism has posted to those inquiring about giving funds to the protest group.
Protestors and their supporters complain just because billionaires like George Soros gives them thousands of dollars to continue to protest doesn’t mean they don’t have a legitimate message. Somehow, whatever message they were trying to spend went up in the same flames protestors ignited at UC Berkeley.
Those who want to make it ‘big’ in protesting don’t necessarily have to join a social activism group. Anti-Trump activists are searching for passionate actors on Craigslist.
Dissenting opinions against the executive actions of the President aren’t the only jobs for hire- administrators of various reward and coupon redemption websites are flagging down users who are paying others to trash talk online.
Swagbucks, a website where users to fill out opinions and take surveys for shopping money, was caught earlier this week by the Daily Kos. According to the Daily Kos, a user was paying other users in “swagbucks” to dissent online the newly confirmed Department of Education nominee, Betsy DeVos.
Americans have yet to see the end of paid protests. Progressive filmmaker Michael Moore is collaborating with protestors for a march against Trump on Tax Day. The #TrumpTaxDayMarch is an attempt for the President to release his tax returns. Moore is calling for all of those who participated or supported the Women’s March after Inauguration Day to join a nation-wide protest in defiance of President Trump.
President Trump tweeted earlier this morning: “Mainstream media is reporting FAKENEWS about anyone being against the BAN and all the protestors are professional and have been PAID! Sad!”
