  • Were many "counter-protesters" crowd hires?

    I ask the question because it's been brought up with sufficient evidence to argue it's possibility

    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2...k/#more-157006

    The ad was posted by a company called “Crowds on Demand” and offered $25 per hour to “actors and photographers” to participate in events in the “Charlotte, NC area.”* While the ad didn’t explicitly define a role to be filled by its crowd of “actors and photographers” it did ask applicants to comment on whether they were “ok with participating in peaceful protests.”* Here is the text from the ad:

    Actors and Photographers Wanted in Charlotte

    Crowds on Demand, a Los Angeles-based Public Relations firm specializing in innovative events, is looking for enthusiastic actors and photographers in the Charlotte, NC area to participate in our events. Our events include everything from rallies to protests to corporate PR stunts to celebrity scenes. The biggest qualification is enthusiasm, a “can-do” spirit. Pay will vary by event but typically is $25+ per hour plus reimbursements for gas/parking/Uber/public transit.

    For more information about us, please visit www.crowdsondemand.com
    I'm not vouching for its authenticity or otherwise, but it appears that there exists a real possibility the numbers of "counter-protesters" were bulked up with hires.

    So, in a country which spent 4 years fighting Fascism (you started a bit late), they had to HIRE anti-Nazi protestors.

    And you wonder why the rest of the world holds you in contempt ?

      I sincerely doubt it. There are plenty of idle, misguided people on both sides.

        I think both sides hired people to bulk up their numbers. One of the organizers has a Go Fund Me account to pay for her schooling, so I doubt she hired anyone using her money. Outsiders are always willing to stir up trouble in a place they don't live in.

          As soon as you apologize for European intellectuals and politicians giving cover to the socialist disasters in Russia, China, Venezuela, etc maybe we will take you seriously.

          BTW you do know Hitler was a socialist right?

            Funny that; I didn't experience that at all when I was in Europe with my family during late June and early July, especially in Great Britain and France.
            We are not now that strength which in old days
            Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
            Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
            To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                  I'm sure they do. The only thing they're lacking up there is gainful employment.

                        Sheep porn is considered gainful employment...

                          Glad you had a good time. We don't hold Americans in contempt, but we are starting to worry about the competence of your political leaders

                            Yes, but we used to call it, "Marathon."

                              They use Mars Bars. Adding peanuts is- this being Scotland- considered too expensive.
