When the Tea Party picked up steam during the Obama years, one accusation was lodged over and over again: Conservatives used paid protesters.
Yes, the left-wing media worked very hard to push the narrative that the GOP donors and groups were working behind the scenes to manufacture opposition to the president.
However, anyone with eyeballs (and a brain) could plainly see by the crowds and how they behaved that such a claim was false.
They were orderly, completely non-violent, and perfectly displayed the sentiments being expressed by the conservative base. It was genuine outrage coupled with serious action.
The reason the Left was desperate to delegitimize the grassroots conservative movement is because their side actually DOES employ fake protestors, and to a staggeringly large degree.
They’ve done this for decades, and everyone knows they’re far better at jump-starting movements than conservative groups could ever hope to be, because they have a massive network of people whose sole occupations are in “perception shaping” and general “protesting.”
In the Trump era, there’s more evidence of this than ever before.
As reported at Breitbart, a group of anti-Trump activists is offering potentially as much as $15,000 to full-time political activists to help in the resistance against President Donald Trump.
“Terrified about Trump? Quit your job, start an A-Team. We might just fund it,” reads Fight For The Future’s A-Teams project page.
A whack-job leftist could earn up to $15,000 in the first month alone to fight conservatives on all sorts of social issues, including, “Healthcare / ACA, Climate, Immigration, The Wall, Corruption, Racism / Fascism, Police, Prisons.”
The group’s website also encourages people to create political groups and become full-time grassroots political activists, offering the possibility of funding to these groups, allowing them to turn their activism into a paying job.
Really, only a liberal could make a career of whining about stuff.
Further down the page, however, the funding description becomes slightly less promising:
“To start, we’re going to select some of the strongest teams for funding. So if you’ve got a 2-3 person A-Team and a target, you should apply.
We’d potentially give you $15,000 for the first month, just to see what you can do.”

“If you make a big splash or measurable impact on your target in that time, we think we can find you more.”
Basically, they’re dangling an imaginary carrot in front of loser liberals, hoping they’ll be stupid enough to fall for a ploy the group itself knows is a scam, because no money is guaranteed.
So most of these participants will end up doing free protesting on behalf of Fight for the Future, and all they’ll get out if it is the high of smugly declaring how “tolerant” they are.
It proves just how well these liberal organizations understand their own moronic followers, doesn’t it?
They know how to motivate them in the right ways, especially the one that gets them free “labor.”
