The liberal organization Progressive USA Voters, which is housed in the same progressive Denver office building as a chapter of the infamous left-wing astroturf group ProgressNow, is offering an hourly wage of between $9 and $11 to join its gun-control campaign in Chicago, according to a flyer that was photographed and posted to Reddit Friday.

Why is such activism work so completely one-sided to the left?

One would think if the practice were effective that the right could do the same—and if it weren’t, that the left would stop doing it.

How about some of us infiltrating the “movement” and and substituting factual information for their prevarications? Take their money while working to expose them- how sweet!

There are no successful liberal plans or policies, yet they'll never admit failure.
They just keep on lying, making excuses and lying and making excuses and ...

There are a lot of wealthy leftists who pour money into foundations and groups like this.

It does not work as well for the right because inevitably the left accuses the right group of racism, Naziism, or the like.

Exactly, you can’t feed a family on that amount. They need a Living Wage.

Seems to me the liberal plan to get socialists elected from local offices straight up to the presidency has been extremely successful.

I'd join the group. Then I would carry a pro-gun, pro-second-amendment message.

F*** 'em.

Oh, and give me my damned paycheck. Now.

They should provide free health care and paid maternity leave. If they protest for more than 2 hour they have to get a 30 minute break. They have to have workers compensation for any on the job injuries and they should be reimbursed for any extra clothing necessary because of the cold snowy weather as well. They should be allowed an hour for lunch and a nap area for being over stressed..............

The communist left has a lot of big money donors (like Soros). The left also has all the freeloaders who have nothing else to do. Living off other peoples paychecks gives them a lot of extra time to protest. That gives them the protesting upper hand.

Imagine if right wingers had a guaranteed income and never had to work a day in their lives. Of course we'd protest. We'd be all over the place. Why wouldn't we be? What else would we do to entertain ourselves?

If the EBT cards stopped working today and the freeloaders had to get jobs like normal people, these whacked out, weirdo liberal protests (whining sessions) wouldn't exist. People would be busy doing things to help, rather than destroy, the country. Because the EBT cards do work, the liberals can have their protests about any dumb thing they want any time they want. We taxpayers support them while they do it.

...........Share the WORK, and the wealth will automatically share itself. That way, no man could be used as another mans slave.

astroturf groups!

Yeah. All the left wing protests are manufactured (those with more than 6 people) . They don't mean anything anymore. The freeloaders will do anything for a dollar.
Most of them have no idea what it is they're protesting. They're just bused in, or paid to show up.

Walk down the street in any city U.S.A and you'll find a group of brain dead liberals whining about something and trying to get noticed. They're never happy (unless they can "share" their misery).

Today, a liberal protest is as common as dog poop in a park (but they smell worse).

If these people are getting paid, the organizers have to send out tax forms at the end of the year. This is income.
I hope someone follows up on this. Tax evasion is a federal crime.

In much of the Middle East and Asia, there is a long tradition of “rent-a-mobs”, with a sliding scale of how much violence is being paid for. But “the local tyrant” just tells his secret police to turn out a crowd for the same purpose, threatening to rough them up if they are not enthusiastic enough.

These concepts are obviously now embraced by the US far left.

I hope they report this income to their local welfare office. Otherwise, it's theft of services. The amount paid has to be deducted from their EBT card. It's income. They're getting paid, so they're considered "employed."
I hope someone follows up on this.

unionize astroturf groups!

They are unionized...SEIU and AFL + teachers and Government employees. This attack on gun rights will go on until we are out of ammunition or out of targets. Bet on it!

Yet the uninformed American people still do business with them. Personally, I avoid them all like a plague. NEVER will I buy a union made auto, or go to a place I know has SEIU labor if I can avoid it. I prefer not to support them.
Yes, we home schooled, too. Our kids were not subjected to the teachers union.
