One front group, “Demand Protest,” makes the pitch on the front page of their website, saying, ” WE ASSEMBLE MOVEMENTS – From grassroots organizations to advocacy groups, we seed the narratives and gather the audience you desire. When your strategy demands paid protest, we organize and bring it to life.”
……Their “About” page describes them as offering UNASSAILABLE AUTHENTICITY, although their explanation clearly refutes those claims. You can’t be authentic if you’re pretending to be something you’re not. They state, “We are strategists mobilizing millennials across the globe with seeded audiences and desirable messages. With absolute discretion a top priority, our operatives create convincing scenes that become the building blocks of massive movements. When you need the appearance of outrage, we are able to deliver it at scale while keeping your reputation intact. Plausible deniability and a safe distance are part of the benefit of their services, hardly authentic characteristics of their actors.

So that’s where millennials are getting jobs.

Protesters created havoc across Washington on Inauguration Day, shattering glass storefronts and torching cars but never posing a serious security threat to President Trump’s official inaugural ceremonies.
Authorities said 217 people were arrested Friday in the protests and demonstrations, which started before dawn and at one point turned into a full-scale riot.
Most of the damage was inflicted by protesters associated with the group DistruptJ20 that had vowed for weeks to “paralyze” the city.
Black-clad protestors with their faces covered smashed out the windows of a limousine, then set it afire. They also shattered the class-fronts of a Bank of America, McDonald’s and Starbucks, as police officers fired pepper spray to tried to disperse the crowd as it moved from midtown to the Inaugural Parade route on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Metropolitan Police Department Chief Peter Newsham said the destruction started at about 10:30 a.m. and that those arrested were charged with rioting.
He also said that six police officers were injured in clashes with protesters, including three with head injuries. One civilian also was injured, and none of the injuries was life threatening.
……A Kansas couple told FoxNews.com that demonstrators attacked them at the checkpoint.
Celeste Sollars, who said she and her husband came to town from Kansas to see the inauguration, said they were spit on and her husband was put in a chokehold by protesters.
“The cops wouldn’t do anything,” she said, crying. “This is not how it was supposed to be — assault is not a First Amendment right.”
A man in sitting in jail under investigation for spitting on a Cleveland police officer when a protest erupted into chaos in front of a FOX 8 I-Team camera.
It happened downtown Friday afternoon. Cleveland police blocked streets and cleared a path for a group of protesters marching to speak out against Donald Trump as president.
Suddenly, a woman and a man could be seen interfering with a bike patrol officer riding alongside the group. As the officer moved to grab the man, he pulled away and spit in the face of the officer.
……The man, we’ve learned, is 19 from Cleveland’s west side. He could face the same charges as the woman along with a felony charge of assault on a police officer for the spitting.
We’re watching for charges to be filed, so we can find out more about the suspects.
Good. I want to know who this little ratfuck is.
