AFL-CIO Trumka denies paying protesters, paid protesters say otherwise

This is a great video by the Daily Caller. They asked Richard Trumka about protesters who said they were paid by the AFL-CIO and Trumka actually said that he didn’t believe they said that, and went on to say they show up because they care or something.



And then the video switches to the protesters saying they are currently out of work and are being paid $60/head to come protest. Can we say “gotcha”?

These hired protesters don’t realize that union leaders and leftist organizers are using them as pawns. The protest organizers are hoping for another Kent State massacre that they can use for their own political benefit. It still surprises me how easy it is for the left to find a bunch of useful idiots willing to risk their lives for the advancement of evil.

They don’t have the resources? Nah, you’re flat broke. That’s why you guys will give Obama $1 billion dollars this year for his campaign. Damn, that’s broke. Sorry to bother you, dude.

We don’t have the resources to do that…‘ – Trumpka

A couple dozen people at $60/head= $700-$800. Yeah, they can’t afford that!

Yeah… you’ll get a lot of good info there at Open Secrets (sarc)

It’s funders are Open Society Institute (The Soros money laundering front group)
and Rockerfeller Brothers Fund… who have spend millions on undermining oil and gas exploration by fronting eco-extremists, particularly in Canada to slow down or outright stop any energy development.

They look so clean… they look so slick and respectable. Funny how that works.

Yeah, I’m inclined to agree with you, but if they are showing the vast amounts the Unions give, you know it’s much higher.

Annenberg Challenge funded by the Annenberg Foundation. Ayers’ and Obama’s old Chicago stomping grounds.

Notice how many anti-Republican-lite “fact-check” stories on their front page at
fact check. http://factcheck.org/

It proves I’ve been wrong all along. I’ll mend my ways.

Trumka: “We don’t have the resources to pay people to come out

Well that’s clearly a lie.

Maybe they are spending too much on Obama, and the Wisconsin recall. All union protestors get money to picket.

Your tax dollars at work. How many millions was it that O and Dems shifted into the union coffers that are now being funneled into the various OWs groups around the country? Breathtakingly outrageous. Be prepared for rioting, looting, and arson in the city streets this summer. That’s what community organizers organize.

You want to move up in a union (a.k.a. work), you go where the bosses tell you to go. You get reimbursed with the dues paid by other union members.

Instead of ‘paid’, try asking if they were ‘reimbursed for their time’….just a thought. The left loves to parse words.

Let’s see now:

– Admitted paid protesters for OWS means authentic grass roots movement, while wikth no evidence whatsoever the Tea Party is Astroturf.

– Conservative calling a liberal a sl*t requires outrage, a boycott and a demand that all Republicans answer for it. Liberal calling Palin a c*nt and wishing for the death of varius conservatives is OK because conservatives are so, you know, intolerant.

– Liberals demand free abortifacients, contraceptives and sterilization. Conservatives, who were happy with the way things were and who want no changes are creating controversy, are anti-women and are trying to impose their religion on others.

– etc., etc.

I think I am getting the hang of this. I think I may be able to pass the mandatory test for becoming a MSM reporter.

Yeah, in the liberal mind you are the aggressor if you don’t lay down and play dead while they impose radical liberalism and tyranny on us. You should be a mindless sheep like their base and just let it happen.

I think Michelle Fields is fantastic. She’s the perfect warrior on our side. She disarms them every time just for being her. She’ll get them to tell the truth all the time… it’s just her way.

But of course with Trumpka… not so. But then again he’s the father of AFL-CIO lies in the first place. Lying is his nature.

Unions are a formidable opponent in our efforts to take back America. I believe they are a major source of funding for Romney as a fall-back candidate; Romney’s dad was deeply connected to them.
