Count all these hired protesters as jobs created by Trump.

They post it as $2,500 a month because they know the stupid people will only see the $2,500 and think they are going to be paid $2,500 for 1 day of protesting. $2,500 divided by 30 (the number of days in a month) equals $83.33 a day,coincidently that`s exactly how much you would make working 9 hours at minimum wage.
when the thugs and ner-do-wells come to collect their $2,500 I wouldn`t want to be the person that has to tell them that they in fact will only be getting paid $83.33 and they will be getting paid by check with the appropriate social security, Medicaid and other taxes deducted.

Yes, only stupid or very poor people would apply to this ad. However, my doubts about the veracity of the whole thing remains and that is based upon just how stupid to we take the liberals who are being accused of placing those ads to be.
Do we take them to be so stupid as to place ads in twenty newspapers around the nation where they can so easily be found by anyone who would want to find them and then to call out the fraud of the protests? Would they be so stupid as to undermine their whole operation in such a manner? I just cannot imagine them to be that stupid.

Anyone can see that there will be sufficient protesters all over the country that paying people to protest would be a silly thing to do. I is just not believable.

But the suggestion is that the people who answer these ads would not be asked to just protest, but rather to agitate. To foment violence. And again I have to doubt it. There more than likely be enough very pissed off people at these events that violence will come anyway. Hell, there will be teenagers at these events not for political statements but rather just for the thrill of being in the center of a riot. Who needs paid protesters or paid agitators.

Plus, if and when violence ensues, the full force of Trumps new government will come down on the protesters and agitators. Just how stupid could these liberal benefactors of paid agitators be to make themselves such an easy target by being so visual in their actions.. They would have given any court and any judge or jury all the evidence they would need to find them guilty of any number of federal conspiracy, inciting to riot and other laws. It just makes no sense. They cannot be THAT stupid.

It's a joke. Hoax.

He was funny actually.

From: www.washingtontimes.com...

""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.""

President Obama's economy is so robust, that there aren't enough unemployed, or homeless people left, to fill all the agitator positions available.

What makes you think it wasn't Trump supporting conservatives who planted these ads so they can claim all the protesters are paid actors and that America actually does love Trump?

Probably put there by the Trump team of Propagandists to drum up some publicity and outrage and opposition from others. Maybe a little sympathy as well.

After all, who would bother paying for protests when people are already protesting all on their own for nothing. You don't need to pay anyone anything to protest against Trump.

just as a matter of logic how can a "grassroots" campaign justify payment for "activities"

Right or Wrong.

Doubt it.

You don't need to pay people to protest Trump. They do that all on their own anyway, why spend money for it when they do it for free??

But if you doubt that, why not take them up on their offer and expose them for it??

I am wired for recon ,not a UC,it has a happier ending.
It is BEYOND easy just to look me in the eyes and figure out I am NOT a pleasant person.
I suppose the braided beard and long hair can be off putting as well.
NOT to mention Lying isn't a skill I am too effective at using,BLUNT TRUTH is the game.
I also am CONSTANTLY scanning,it looks suspicious to cops, but I can't really help it any more since the BLM/Jihad party has picked up on veterans,it's now locked in.

Beat me to it, grey. Well done.
And it looks like Melissa over at the Daily Sheeple took
hold of this one too. Smells kinda funny, I must say:

Headline: "Ads Offer Big Money for Paid Provocateurs
to Protest Trump’s Inauguration in at Least
20 Major US Cities

www.thedailysheeple.com... 2017

[gag]All I know is the original posting to the newspapers is
San Francisco [/gag] as if, and the supposed CEO was nicely
taken apart a little later on by Tucker Carlson [even worse].
He looked like a bearded ant under a mag-glass full of sunlight.
It also looks like a little well-placed well poisoning for our big
money guy... agreed. An estimated 80 million for George to
create a major event at the inaguration and start a giant riot
would be comparatively chicken feed out-of-pocket.

Looks like it was a hoax though.

Yes, HOAX
Fake News.

The guy who hoaxed it was quite funny on FOX though when he realised they knew he was a hoaxer.

This is a hoax. Your link redacted their claims.

The polished Demand Protest website, the Backpage.com ads recruiting paid protesters for the Trump inauguration: Apparently it was all a hoax.

A man using the alias “Dominic Tullipso” said Tuesday on Fox News Channel — well, it was hard to figure out what he was trying to say, but it was also clear that he wasn’t running a business that involved spending thousands on hiring activists.

“It’s pretty darn easy these days to just say whatever the heck you want on national TV and have it pass off as truth,” he told host Tucker Carlson. “I don’t know, it’s pretty incredible to me how easy it was to get the coverage we got.”

The unidentified prankster then added, “By the way, I’m not saying that anything of this a hoax and any of this isn’t true.”

Mr. Carlson informed him that, “Well, I’m vetting you right now, and I’m saying you are not legitimate, you are lying. You have fooled other news organizations, you have not fooled us.”

The Washington Times reported Tuesday that ads offering activists up to $2,500 per month to protest the inaugural of President-elect Donald Trump were running in more than two dozen cities, posted by a company called Demand Protest.

This sucks. Everyone wants to be the Daily World News.

I'm surprised that there isn't a story about Trump having an alien baby.
