Well this is fun............




After talking about following the efforts of a group of Native-Americans talking with Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski (R), Thomas shifted to talking about those who “organized”. “And that moment with Jeff Flake on the Hill, we talked to one woman who worked for Ultraviolet who was paid. She helped steer people in the right ways to be able to confront senators,” she admitted.


Oh wait what?????

I thought the democrats were the party of "grass roots" movements? I thought protesters being paid were just a conspiracy theory?




“So, there were paid…” Karl trailed off seemingly dumbfounded as Thomas continued. “There were people who were paid by organizations like Ultraviolet to try to harness that energy in a way that would make the viral moments that we ended up seeing,” she said.


I really get tired of hearing how this sort of stuff wasnt a hit job, when these people are ADMITTING to paying people to be there.....

Whats kind of humorous is , they had to 'teach them' to protest.........good god......

So tell us, is this justified? Time and time again we get told that were making things up, and here we are again, the far left exposing themselves and proving what we said right.

They arent even trying to hide anymore........

The sad thing is so many people are continually falling for (and supporting) the same people with money that are leading them towards more division.

We are seeing this happen at almost every large "media" filmed protest. Yet, if you watch the news you would think this is the most important subject.

The water at Flint is still tainted.

So sounds like a professional organizer? There are full-time organizers for both the Left and Right who work for various organizations. I'm sure you're aware of all those Koch-funded organizers for the Tea Party movement? Or nah?

Speaking of Kavanaugh though:

It is on the same level as paying someone for their vote, IMO.

I'm not a trump supporter nor voted for him, but the left really needs to wake the F up and get back control of their party. Its embarrassing,disgusting and more importantly dangerous.

Forget the Great Orange one and concentrate on your own house or you will get another 4 years of trump and I wouldn't disappointed nor surprised. The Left has given the radical rabid deranged extremist not only a platform to represent them but have supported them as their representatives.

To add, "Women for Kavanaugh" appears to be a project of the conservative activism group, Concerned Women for America. CWA has paid organizers.

So... paid supporters for Kavanaugh.

Pardon, are they paid to cause chaos? Disrupt government processes? Verbally attack and threaten gov officials?

Stop w the intellectual dishonesty

Again other was denied vehemently that they were paid and now we see it is true

Are we not "woke up" yet?

This "open your eyes" is not a party issue.

We are being manipulated by forces that do not have our country's nor our persons' best interests at heart.

We need to look around and above what we readily see. There's much dirty mischief afoot and it will continue to shoot us in the foot if we continue to not pay attention.

Actually is is a party issue.

Communism is on the march.

The snip we witnessed recently goes on in the North Korea,China,and other despotic regimes.

And for a second do you not think there were not paid Kavanaugh supporters also? Both sides always have paid players in place. Always! Of course they are only bad when the paid players don't represent the side one agrees with. If nothing else the Kavabuagh hearings show that none of our Congress is worth a damn and that they should all be replaced.

No, the problem comes when conservatives, including Trump (fake conservative?), President of the United States, try to dismiss left-wing protesters as being paid shills.

Are you trying to tell me that all this "paid protesters" BS is about professional organizers? Let's get real here. There's a whole segment of right-wing propaganda dedicated to pushing the idea that left-wing protests are fake and composed of what amounts to actors.

But hey, keep it up guys. It reminds me of Clinton's idiotic "deplorables" comment. Who do you think is energized more by this? I'm going to go with the Left.

Whataboutism to address what isn't even the point. Nice.

The point: when it was pointed out that the protesters were paid, it was flat out denied. That is what you need to address....

...not whataboutisms about how 2 wrongs somehow make it right.

In other words: your argument only works to troll your opposition. Us moderates see that and just shake our heads at how the partisans seem to accept the sewers they inhabit.

They are some funny looking protestors... You know the protestors who cause havoc with only one goal to disrupt? Organizers and protestors are not the same....

Please bring this comparison of paid supporters up to every moderate and independent you know. Make that vast contrast between "supporter" and "leftist mass hysteria" or "civil unrest" as clear to as many people as possible.

Thanks!

If you have evidence of them getting paid to go out to recruit people to create viral moments for the MSM to air for this I am interested to see it.

But all that would prove is the people saying no one is getting paid are still .. wait for it .. wrong.

Brooks Brothers Riot


Hundreds of paid GOP operatives descended upon South Florida to protest the state's recounts,[1] with at least half a dozen of the demonstrators at Miami-Dade paid by George W. Bush's recount committee.[2] Several of these protesters were identified as Republican staffers and a number later went on to jobs in the Bush administration


When Republicans didn't like how things were going, a NY state rep, John Sweeney gave the order, "shut it down!" at which point a swarm of paid protesters, led by Roger Stone and a bunch of congressional aides, including Kavanaugh's boy Joel Kaplan (who is now a Facebook VP for Global Policy) who you can see right here (center):



They were paid, they caused chaos and it was all done deliberately to stop the recount process and they were successful.

Mob Scene in Miami


Marjorie Strayer insisted she was just a Virginian on vacation in Miami. She had come to the downtown Stephen P. Clark Government Center to watch the Dade County vote recount — something to do before the trip to the Seaquarium. But Strayer, it turns out, is a top aide to New Mexico's Republican congresswoman, Heather Wilson, and was one of hundreds of paid GOP crusaders who descended on South Florida last Wednesday to protest the state's recounts. "The system is unfair, inaccurate, fraught with human error!" Strayer cried. In a Winnebago outside, GOP operatives orchestrated the ranks up to the 19th floor, hoping to halt the tally of the largest potential lode of Gore votes. Republicans, not usually known for takin' it to the streets, got what they wanted. Just two hours after a near riot outside the counting room, the Miami-Dade canvassing board voted to shut down the count. Yet the way the Republicans went after it, by intimidating the three-member board or by providing the excuse it was looking for, gave Americans the first TV view of strong-arm tactics in what was supposed to be a showcase of democracy in action.


And there was violence:


What the world watched was a GOP melee. When Geller walked out of the room with a sample ballot, the crowd accused him of stealing a real one and responded as if he had just nabbed a baby for its organs. Geller says he was pushed by two dozen protesters screaming, "I'm gonna take you down!" Luis Rosero, a Democratic observer, claims he was punched and kicked. Republicans dispute the charges, but video cameras caught scenes of activism that had morphed into menace. The organizers in the RV outside, who GOP protesters have told TIME were led by hardball Washington strategist Roger Stone, had phone banks churning out calls to Miami Republicans, urging them to storm downtown. (Stone could not be reached for comment.) One of them was a fire fighter, Rob Eltus, 45: "What Americans are finally seeing is Republicans fed up."


While it's known that Kaplan took part, I've read — but haven't been able to confirm, so it could be inaccurate — that Kavanaugh was involved. He was certainly in Florida at the time and working on the Bush campaign legal team (including working on Bush v. Gore).
