Crowds on Demand Actors in Charlottesville?

ZH-

Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was “blame on both sides” for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend.

Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based “public relations firm specializing in innovative events” to serve as agitators in counterprotests.

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:

  1. Now Hiring! Taliban-R-Us… no experience-will train. Clubs and Black Hoodies provided. Have fun and make money at the same time! Must be willing to travel.

  2. Then why aren’t they responsible for Workers’ Compensation, Socialist Security withholding, Medicare (or ObolaCare) withholding, State, Local, and Federal income tax withholding, the actions of their employees, and the cleanup?

    Exempt because … ?

    izlamo delenda est …

  3. Who is funding this “commie rioters on demand”
    company.Who calls them up and buys their services ???

  4. soros is a cia asset.
    why else would he be free ?

    this is the cia at work and using your tax dollars to hire these “protestors”.

    it becomes more obvious every incident.

    the deep state wants anarchy so thy can resolve it by taking away your right to speak, right to defend yourself and right to assemble.

  5. Abigail Adams mentioned this in the Bullpen last week. Nothing in the MSM. I sent an email to elrushbo@eibnet.us but I guess he didn’t
    get it. I’d say Adam Swart and crowdsondemand.com should be investigated, but by whom?
    There is something very wrong here. McCain, Romney ,and Rubio are the pits.
    BTW Abigail, how did the paint job go? Keep the Faith. Look for the silver lining. MAGA
    There is something very wrong here

  6. Re: The Google protest —–The cops in 2 of the cities said there was no permit asked for and they had no threats called in.

    Whatever. But I’m wondering if G00gle is funding some of this. We know they pretty much run along side antifa. They clobber you technically, not with a bike lock over the head.

    ” Nationwide anti-Google protests canceled due to antifa threats—
    By Rick Moran
    A nine city protest against Google and supporting free speech for Google employees was canceled after organizers said there were threats of violence from the “alt-left.”

    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/08/nationwide_antigoogle_protests_canceled_due_to_antifa_threats.html

    The media is trying very hard to connect the anti-Google demonstrations to the racists and Nazis who demonstrated in Charlottesville. In at least some respects, they were apparently succesful. “

  7. The left’s new “anti-Potemkin Village” people trick to deceive the masses into believing things are much worse than they are. It’s sad that they can skate in the media with their deceptive practices in this once free country. The leftist ruling class shows no limits in their treachery to take on power.

  8. Furthermore, has anyone uncovered
    just FOR WHICH SIDE (or BOTH?!?)
    this agency was hiring?!

    Small detail….

  9. Smoking gun.
    Put the 4Chan/Anonymous crowd on this one. They’ll have this front company ID’ed and every participant Doxxed in time for tomorrow’s cornflakes.

    Yes, time to declare ANTIFA a criminal organization and shut them down, along with their corporate donors/enablers.

    Teach corporations that SJWing does not pay.

  10. Busing people in from a couple hundred miles away has a number of advantages:

    1. Complete herd control with no wandering off. They can’t go AWOL when you’re their only transport back home.
    2. Their faces aren’t known to local cops, which gives “protestors ” a false sense of anonymity.
    3. They have no local allegiances. Their assigned targets aren’t recent classmates or future coworkers, or family.
    4. Easier to convince participants they will be safely out of jurisdiction once they return home, which reinforces #2.

  11. WOW…. this is a whole new level of stupid. Do any of you REALLY believe that you’d have to pay people to drum up a protest of Nazis, real, honest to God Nazis… in a COLLEGE TOWN!!!!! LOL!!!! Seriously, it’s a college town, full of liberal arts students. NAZIS!!!! LOL!

  12. My point is, you don’t have to pay if you want college kids to protest Nazis… just mention to college kids that there will be Nazis, they’ll do the protesting all on their own.

  13. They don’t want kids to just protest. They want people ready to participate in full all out thuggery. Oh and even though CNN and MSNBC and the rest of the left media didn’t want to show it, Project Veritas already bagged a DNC operative bragging about paying for people to show up at Trump rallies and cause trouble during the election.

    Also its been proven that BLM and Antifa have had their thugs bussed in to certain areas to help cause trouble. Most of the rioters in Ferguson, Baltimore, Berkeley etc were not locals, they were from out of town if not from outta state.

  14. RightWinger- Occupy did the same thing. There was some poor fool protester self-chained to a fence on airport property in Las Vegas. It was hilarious. handful of friends got bored and left after 10 days leaving him alone. He eventually left because people passing by were making fun of him. lol

  15. @Trolly

    It’s was not only to “Protest Nazi’s” it was also to participate AS Nazi’s. They were paid to infiltrate the groups and then help cause unrest.

  16. @Petrus, I think Nazis in the streets SHOULD cause unrest and I don’t think the money was necessary but if someone wanted to throw their money around like that, fine. Didn’t Citizens United rule that money = speech?

    IMO, “I’ll beat you with a club because you’re black, brown, a Jew, an immigrant, etc…. and I don’t care if you’re a man, a woman or a child” IS A LOT WORSE THAN, “I’ll beat you with a club if you’re an Alt-Right piece of shit Nazi, KKK member or white supremacist.”

  17. You are aware that Charlotte and Charlottesville are two different places in two different states, right? Can you not read a map through the tin foil over your eyes?
