Adverts are circulating online in an effort to recruit demonstrators to protest against Donald Trump across the United States. The adverts state “As a Demand Protest operative you will receive a monthly retainer of $2,500 on top of our standard per-event pay of $50/hr, as long as you participate in at least 6 events a year.”
It goes onto state “operatives receive health, vision and dental insurance for families, flexible vacations, and paid trainings. Travel expenses are always paid.”
The website links through to an application form which checks employment status, political party membership, whether you have family in Government and how you admire the most. In the interests of journalism we have applied and await our response. Rumours on 4chan link the group to Soros.Whilst there isn’t evidence to suggest that is true it is obvious that someone is funding these protests. The Washington Times previously reported he funded the Fergurson riots stating in a report “Mr. Soros spurred the Ferguson protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S.”
Paying protesters to demonstrate undermines the concept of genuine protest and instead is likened to recruiting your own army to undertake unlawful acts on your behalf in order to undermine the establishment and cause civil unrest.
