Looking for a temporary paid gig to earn some extra cash protesting Trump? Do you like shouting slogans, holding signs, and standing your ground?
If you’re an experienced protestor or would like to be, answering the latest of what appear to be several anti-Donald Trump ads on Craigslist may be your best bet.
A few weeks ago, according to an article on InfoWars, a pro-Bernie Sanders ad appeared on Craigslist, inviting folks in Wisconsin to protest at a Trump rally. In an effort to entice people to show up, the ad offered protesters $15 an hour:
“Shuttle buses, parking, signs, and hourly pay available. $15 an hour due to economic inequality. Meet at 3300 W. Tripp Road, Jainesville, WI 53548 for pre-protest instructions and to get your time card.”
According to the article, the ad “was subsequently deleted after it began to receive attention on pro-Trump forums.”
Fox News Insider also included an image of the ad, which stated:
“You don’t need anything except to show up in force. Please share with all family and friends on Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media. We’ve already had one listing removed because of Trump supporters flagging it. They don’t want us to be there!!”
We at the New Hampshire Review decided to research this phenomenon on our own, only to discover a similar ad for a Trump campaign event in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. According to the ad we found on Craigslist New Hampshire
We are looking for people to protest racial injustice and anti-immigration at an upcoming political rally in Portsmouth NH on 6/13/16. We are looking for people who will hold signs and chant anti-conservative slogans for 3-4 hours.
The Craigslist ad also mentioned this, hinting at Hillary Clinton’s recent slogan:
We are stronger together when we work together to bring down income inequality and social injustice.
But here’s the million-dollar question: Are these legitimate ads? If they are, who’s behind them?
One protester, according to ABCNews, said he was given “$3,500 to protest Donald Trump’s rally in Fountain Hills (Arizona).
“As for who these people were affiliated with that interviewed me, my guess would be Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” the man said, “The actual check I received after I was done with the job was from a group called ‘Women Are The Future’.
If protester do show up at Trump’s next campaign event, they may have been organized on Craigslist.
