Mom going to town hall to voice concerns? Astroturfing angry mob. Get paid $600/wk to “protest” FOR Obamacare? SWEET

August 7, 2009


As first reported on Red State today, it seems some forms of protesting are more authentic than others.

When your Mom and Grandpa head down to the old town hall in their own community for a meeting, dress appropriately (the horror!) and peaceably assemble to voice their concerns, they are a mob, full of “manufactured” anger, doubtless unwitting shills for the Insurance Companies.

When the Left PAYS people $600 a week to actually shill for them, that is Teh Awesome. Hmm, no wonder they have been screeching and demagoguing relentlessly of late; perhaps they caught a glimpse in the mirror. A case of the old “methinks thou doth protest too much”. Or project?

Who’s astroturfing now? Well, I suppose it doesn’t count since I’m quite certain the paid “protesters'” clothing will meet with Babs Boxer, Ma’am approval as suitably “authentic”.

Fight The Status Quo… Indeed.

    Of course it’s cool. It’s all part of The One’s ‘stimulus package’.
    You should be feeling that chill run up your leg any time now….

    You gotta admit. The left has balls sometimes.

    The Real FASCISTS are people like Dick Armey and Rick Scott who are resorting to mob violence to disrupt the democratic process.

    The right-wing fascists are now using Hitler-like tactics to subvert the democratic process.

      Yeah, you totally just Godwin’d yourself right out of any rational or valid discussion.

      But, thanks!

    They cannot imagine anyone more honest and ethical than themselves. So they accuse us of doing what they do.

    So, the question is, do we fight fire with fire? How do we hire our own ‘representatives’ to fight them? WOnder if there is stimulus money left to fund our own version of ACORN?

    Now that’s an idea! We should form our version of ACORN maybe call it REFORM.
