Pro-Abortion Activists Tied to Planned Parenthood Being Paid to Protest (Craigslist astroturf)

As pro-abortion protestors ascend on the Texas Capitol today, it's good to remind everyone that most of the time, bused in progressive protestors are being paid to protest. 

Craigslist in Austin currently has an advertisement up for wanted full-time activists. The advertisement was posted on June 29, 2013, just two days before the second special Texas Legislature session started.

I called the number listed on the advertisement to get more information and was told this campaign is directly working with Planned Parenthood to bolster their efforts. As a reminder, Planned Parenthood is a tax-exempt, tax payer funded organization that performs more than 330,000 abortions every year.

Unrelated astroturf but in Houston I recently observed several posted fliers recruiting paid activists to engage in "social organizing" and protests (on behalf of the environment and social justice).

Rent a mob. The media ignores it when the Left (and Soros) does it but are so quick to pretend that the "Tea Party" is nothing but "astroturf".

Pathetic. The pro-aborts have to PAY their lowlife protesters. MoveOn funds yet another evil deal.

Next time you see one of those flyers in Houston, grab one and send it to The Blaze.

If course the left think the TEA Party is astroturf. They can't imagine so many people attending a rally on their own dime and time.
Remember, the left always accuse others of what they themselves are doing.

You need to understand that they get food stamps, Obama phones, lottery ticket and beer money just for sitting on their arses. You wouldn’t expect them to show up at a protest rally on their own time, would you?

There was a mob in Austin yesterday chanting the Mary should have aborted Jesus....and Hail Satan. All while the pro-lifers were singing Amazing Grace.

The pro-lifers are the ones fighting peacefully for civil rights, while the aborters attack with venom much as the racists fighting against black rights in the 60s.

There would be more pro-lifers rallying, except we’re conservatives with jobs.

wonder if they get paid in advance. I would take the job and then counter protest. It’s a double win. Take a nutjobs seat and protest against their position.
