The old saying, “better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt,” is one a handful of liberal protesters would do well to keep in mind.
It’s no secret that many of the protesters seen in the news are paid protesters who will chant mindless platitudes in unison with their comrades. However, a basic knowledge of subject under protest seems to go without saying.
Such wasn’t the case for a crew of “Fight For Fifteen” (minimum wage) advocates, protesting Andy Puzder, CEO of Carl’s Jr., fierce critic of the minimum wage — and Trump’s nominee for labor secretary,
Independent Journal Review reports:
A group of demonstrators in Boston protesting President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for labor secretary apparently had no clue who they were actually protesting. In a video posted on YouTube by the conservative America Rising Squared, the man recording the video asks three apparent protesters if they know who Andy Puzder is.“Do you guys know who Andy Puzder is?” the man asks. One of the respondents shook her head “no” and another responded, “nah, I don’t know who that is.” The gentleman behind the camera then asked yet another protester, who was holding a sign, if she knew about Puzder. “Yes,” she said. “But I can point you to someone who really knows.”
In typical liberal fashion, they don’t know who they’re protesting — they just know he’s bad!
For anyone who isn’t familiar with Puzder themselves (if you don’t know who he is but aren’t out protesting him, you get a free pass), he outlined his business and political philosophy on Fox Business’ “Stossel.”
Sound like such a bad guy to you? Of course not, but it’s obvious groups like Fight For Fifteen despise him — he knows firsthand how disastrous their desired policies would be.
