Charles Pierce re: supposed spontaneous demonstrators

Watching people pretend that these demonstrations are spontaneous is proof that we never learn anything from anything.

6. They showed every sign of being staged, BUT the paid agents

are merely priming the pump. Most of the people turning out after the first day just needed to know where to go, not to be paid.

Once again let's note that, although Trump often tweet-bleated for people to turn out to rescue him, it never happened. Big RW powers determined to hold power are providing the money and professional organization to make the protests happen.

But, while most people there only needed to know when and where, in every location they are a very tiny fraction of the local populaces. And again, many are maintaining self isolation in cars.

8. Paid for and staged by the DeVos Family.

You don't get people who are out of work to have a huge flag with Dumps image on it...

14. I was just saying something similar in another thread

they must be encouraged by politicians or organizations to do this. Because if they are really that angry about being told to stay home, why don't they simply disobey the orders? That would not provide the same image as a bunch of angry right wingers gathering in one place but it would allow them to do the thing they are now angry about not being able to do!

It's like when the tea baggers first emerged & everyone said they were a grass roots movement of people opposed to being taxed too much, even though Bush increased their taxes much more than Obama did but for some reason, they didn't mind paying taxes when Bush was in office!!

13. my sept 12, 2011 sign

i displayed at the tea party demonstration at the capital building in hartford.

TEABAGGERS ARE ASTROTURF PUPPETS OF FASCIST CORPORATIONS


I was one lonely counter-protester, let me tell you for sure!

There was about 3 TP chartered busses and I was suprised so many mistook me for an agent of George Soros.

in the belly of the beast kinda like a "will work for food" hunter thompson. days later I learned why the term "teabaggers" should not be used in polite society.

15. It will take another massive spike in Covid19 cases to even begin to register.

And all the efforts to date will have been for naught. They are threatening our lives with this bullshit freedumb crap.
