Organizer admits to paying ‘Occupy DC’ protesters
The Daily Caller ^ | 10/06/2011 | Michelle Fields

Posted on 10/06/2011 9:36:41 PM PDT by martosko

A liberal organizer told the Daily Caller on Thursday afternoon that he paid some Hispanics to attend “Occupy DC” protests happening in the nation’s capital.

[ ... ]

Interviewed in Spanish, the protesters told conflicting stories about how their group was organized. Some said it was organized at their church, and that they were there as volunteers. Others, however, referred to the man from the DC Tenants Advocacy Coalition — the only Caucasian in the group — as their “boss.”

TheDC asked that organizer whether he was paying the group to attend the protest, and he conceded that some protesters “aren’t” volunteers.

“Some of them are volunteers. Some of them aren’t,” he explained. “I can’t identify them. I’m not going to get into an identification game.”

And so the exposure of what an absolute fraud this “Occupation” is starts. These stories are starting to bubble up and they look bad. Not one thing about this is genuine. That is why there is so little sympathy from the public for these dopes. They were interviewing people on the Philly news station tonight and the tone from everybody was “Get a job”.

Isn’t “Occupy DC” redundant, since the Marxists already occupy DC?

Here’s Obama’s chance to recognize the Occupy movement as people who are frustrated, bitter clingers— to their protest signs and their irreligion.

"The Republican Party directs a lot of what the Tea Party does, but not everybody in the Tea Party takes direction from the Republican Party. And so there was a lot of, shall we say, Astroturf, as opposed to grassroots," Pelosi (D-CA)

This person is a vile, evil B****H. Here she displays what a clueless moron she is.

She’s trying too hard. If I didn’t already suspect a George Soros Astroturf job, I sure would have after hearing Pelosi’s unique mix of desperation and inanity.

In the 30’s the National Socialist Party in Germany used the Jews as the scapegoats for their economic woes. They had mobs in the street protesting the Jews. In 2011 Obama is using Wall Street and the rich as the scapegoats for the economic woes that he can not solve. He has mobs in the streets protesting the rich. The rich are Obama’s Jews.

We know what happened to the scapegoats of the National Socialists ended up. Is this where Americas rich will end up? There is precedent Mao, Castro, Che, Pol Pot, etc.

It’s actually pretty funny. The left are such a bunch of lazy good-for-nothings that illegal aliens had to be hired to pick up the slack.
