Decades ago, political humorist PJ O’Rourke was driving with a friend when they found themselves passing a liberal protest. How come, PJ asked, “whenever something upsets the Left, you see immediate marches and parades and rallies with signs already printed and rhyming slogans already composed, whereas whenever something upsets the Right, you see two members of the Young Americans for Freedom waving a six-inch American flag?”His friend replied immediately: we have jobs.
When you see thousands line up to protest Trump at every stop he makes, it’s hard not to wonder “don’t these people have jobs?” Well, apparently the answer has been yes all along. Look what we just found on Craigslist:
And yes, it’s real. The Daily Caller’s Roger Stone attended the protest at Trump Tower last month, and found that “Infiltrating the crowd, I learned most were from MoveOn or the Occupy movement. Soap was definitely in short supply in this crowd. Several admitted answering a Craigslist ad paying $16.00 an hour for protesters.”Hm, looks like the rate has gone down. But still, if I were a liberal this would sound like a dream job. Is there anyone who will pay me a living wage to protest Hillary?
