BUSTED: Look What Company Was Recruiting People To Protest In Charlottesville Last Week

While the Craigslist ad was exposed on Sunday after the rally in Charlottesville went complete chaotic, it still bears being looked into. No one denies that both the alt-left and alt-right got violent that day, but it is very important to understand that the alt is what separates both factions from the true left and right. Alt literally stands for alternative, meaning both of these alt groups have an agenda to find an alternative to the common and more level-headed left and right sides to all of this.

The Craigslist ad has come into question as to exactly which side was hiring protesters or if it could possibly be proof that both sides are in fact one side working on two fronts to create havoc in a country that is already on the brink of civil war.

According  Zero Hedge :

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 counter-protests. 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:

So what is “Crowds on Demand?”  According to their own website, they’re in the business of sourcing large crowds of people to “provide clients with protests, rallies, [and] flash-mobs” all over the country.  They even have an entire page on their website dedicated to “Protests and Rallies.”

The CEO of Crowds on Demand denied to Snopes that his firm was involved in the Charlottesville protests but refused to provide details on the specific purpose of the Craigslist ad and/or why it was temporarily removed yesterday before being restored.

“We were not involved in any capacity with the recent tragic events in Charlottesville, Virginia. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those impacted by the violence”

Silly question, but if your cause is worthy of protest then why would you need to pay $25 per hour to get people to show up?

Paid protesters are not protesters, they are mercenaries without a true cause besides earning blood money and that should be the big issue here. There were many good people in Charlottesville that day who were there to either provide nothing but medical assistance and protection for BOTH sides, and they mostly were militia members. They had no agenda other than to help. There were also many who legitimately went to defend the right to have the statue remain where it always was. However, the only thing the media is allowing to be shown are those on the two opposing sides who actually speak for none of us.

Think about that.
