Have you ever wondered where all the protesters with the professionally made signs come from? Have you ever wondered how so many people seem to be able to take a day off from work to don silly hats or make noise? Well, today’s Daily Caller has the answer.
The Daily Caller reports:
If you’re looking to stage a march or rally and need fake protesters to legitimize your cause, a company now exists solely to provide you with as many actors as you require.
Crowds on Demand provides its clients with people who will form protests, flash mobs, rallies, paparazzi events and other inventive stunts. The company serves every major U.S city, metro area and small city, and executes clients’ specific plans or provides strategies for more general plans.
“We can organize rallies and get media attention for your causes and candidates,” the Crowds on Demand website claims. “We also assist individuals, companies and political organizations with protests and picketing campaigns. We’ve protested governments, corporations and everything in between.”
The company cites measurable results in ending institutional discrimination, receiving compensation for hundreds of homeowners who bought hazardous land and affecting campaign results. The company specializes in political rallies, but has also been hired by foreign governments ‘to help generate positive receptions for newly elected leaders..’
I don’t know about you, but right now I am feeling manipulated. One of the strengths of America is its people and their right to protest. If you attend a protest, you can sometimes learn about an issue by seeing the people involved and their attitudes.The tons of garbage left behind after the Dakota Access Pipeline protest is a good example of this (article here). ( As an animal lover, I was really bothered by the number of dogs left behind when the protesters left.) Would people genuinely concerned about the environment have left so much garbage behind?
At any rate, we are entering a new political era where protesters can be bought and paid for whenever they are needed to manipulate the American public. Now we not only have fake news, we have fake protests. Buyer beware!
