Bernie supporters not just politically engaged youth
A curious thing recently showed up on Craig's List, the digital local newspaper that offers everything from free household items to employment opportunities to paid sexual services. In this case, it was an ad on Tuesday morning inviting pro-Bernie Sanders people in Wisconsin to protest against Donald Trump for $15 an hour.
Beneath an image of a Bernie Sanders T-shirt, the ad, which was posted on Tuesday morning, reads, “Paid positions for protesters at the Trump rally.”
“Shuttle buses, parking, signs, and hourly pay available. $15 an hour due to economic inequality. Meet at 3300 W. Tripp Road, Jainesville, WI 53548 for pre-protest instructions and to get your time card.”
One respondent on Facebook noted that the meet-up location was 10 miles from the site of Trump’s event at the Jainesville Holiday Inn.
The Craigslist ad was subsequently deleted after it began to receive attention on pro-Trump forums.
Writing for the Daily Caller, former Trump advisor Roger Stone revealed, “Infiltrating the crowd, I learned most were from MoveOn or the Occupy movement. Soap was definitely in short supply in this crowd. Several admitted answering a Craig’s list ad paying $16.00 an hour for protesters.”
MoveOn, which is funded by billionaire George Soros, also took credit for causing the cancellation of Trump’s rally in Chicago back on March 11 after hundreds of Bernie Sanders supporters infiltrated the event and staged violence which the media later blamed on Donald Trump.
It appears that Bernie followers are following in the footsteps of their hero and have time on their hands to protest and to collect a check for undoing the time-honored tradition of campaigning in public. Soros has been involved in many dirty political tricks and is anxious to turn the Unites States into a socialist paradise like Russia or Cuba, and Bernie is a wonderful, deranged proxie that can help lead that charge.
Of course, Trump supporters and journalists who have asked the paid hooligans what they object to in Trump's political platform generally have no idea. It is pathetic, but it is the state of Leftist politics today. And Bernie should be ashamed and mortified, but he is not. The only question is if he will also pay for their actual votes on election day, and what these disgusting young people will sell them for.
