Rumors have been circulating for quite some time about how certain Liberal organizations are actively seeking people, actors perhaps even, to protest for them — for pay. While many have claimed to have proof, I don’t believe anything has been set in stone until now.
Want to make SURE you get paid by one of these organizations to participate in a protest? Well… you got to get risk getting arrested, of course!
Housing Works, a left-leaning group, told their protestors that they must RISK ARREST in order to be reimbursed for their airfare to Washington, D.C..
So show up to protest but if you’re all calm and peaceful well you’re stuck with the ticket price.
Housing Works is based out of New York City, and aims to further the health of the LGBTQ community, according to the group’s website.
“Housing Works fights for funding and legislation to ensure that all people living with HIV/AIDS have access to quality housing, healthcare, HIV prevention, and treatment, among other lifesaving services,” the group asserts.
Organizers on either side of the aisle sometimes attempt to coordinate logistics for their teams, but the requirement that an individual need to risk arrest in the District in order to qualify for aid is unique, especially given the fact that hundreds of protesters are facing decades of prison time for violently protesting President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The email also answers a question that the president raised in April when protesters organized nationwide to demand Trump provide his full tax returns.
“I did what was an almost an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College! Now Tax Returns are brought up again?” the president tweeted in April. “Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over!”
