Bristol posts on a blog that is described as:
“Founded in 2008, Patheos.com is the premier online destination to engage in the global dialogue about religion and spirituality and to explore and experience the world’s beliefs. Patheos is the website of choice for the millions of people looking for credible and balanced information about religion. Patheos brings together faith communities, academics, and the broader public into a single environment, and is the place where many people turn on a regular basis for insight, inspiration, and stimulating discussion. Patheos is unlike any other religious and spiritual site on the Web today.”
However, Bristol rarely posts about anything spiritual. Instead she focuses on politics. In her recent post she indicates proof that anti-Trump protesters were actually being paid to protest. The title of the article is:
The reality is that it was Donald Trump who paid people $50.00 to pretend to be his supporters at the announcement of his candidacy is the only person who has hired people to pretend to be advocating anything. When those allegations first surfaced, the source of the information was identified as an e-mail, and was quoted:
“We are looking to cast people for the event to wear T-shirts and carry signs and help cheer him in support of his announcement,” the email said. “We understand this is not a traditional ‘background job,’ but we believe acting comes in all forms and this is inclusive of that school of thought.”
Business Insider called Extra Mile, which was the organization that hired the actors. The woman who answered the phone, hung up, after they asked a question, attempting to verify they authenticity of the e-mail. Subsequent calls to the company reached an answering machine.
Trump and his campaign representative did not respond to requests for comment.
Clearly the people protesting the 2016 Presidential election were not paid actors. They were people who were genuinely upset with the outcome of the election. The importance of experience of the organizers doesn’t mean they were paid by anyone, or that there was anything improper about being organized. Obviously, organization and experience is something that escapes the Palins. Sarah didn’t have the experience to run for Vice President, and Bristol hasn’t educated herself about anything…except how to get pregnant. If the organizers of these protests had experience helping people make their feelings known, and exercising their First Amendment rights, then more power to them! The fact that the protests were organized, effective, and non-violent is a good thing. There is no evidence that Hillary had anything to do with the organization of these protests or that anyone paid them to organize the protests!
There have been people expressing their passion about something in the past that was a very positive thing for the country!
Remember the people who demonstrated their support for the Dallas police that were shot. I bet professional organizers planned that too!
Remember the people who demonstrated their support after the shooting at Sandy Hook? I bet professional organizers planned that too!
