Now, Pundit Press has discovered that those protesting are not simply doing it because they have their facts mixed up. Instead, many are getting up to $650 a week protesting on Wall Street against... greed.
Go over to Craigslist and you will find an ad taken out by the Working Families Party. The advertisement declares that "wallstreet (sic)" must be held "accountable." Applicants must be "outgoing, articulate dedicated, determined (sic)."
|Spelling: Not a Strong-suit of the Working Families Party|
If you want some of the details, here are the first couple of paragraphs, exactly as they appear in the ad:
The Working Families Party (WFP) (www.workingfamiliesparty.org) is New York's most energetic, independent and progressive political party. Formed in 1998 by a grassroots coalition of community organizations, neighborhood activists, and labor unions, we came together to build a society that works for all of us, not just Wall Street CEOs and the well-connected. WFP is independent from corporate and government funding and in-addition we are community based; community funded and equally uninfluenced by both major parties. Our agenda focuses on economic and social justice, corporate accountability, job creation, environmental protection, and investment in education and healthcare.The headline of the ad screams in all capital letters: "FIGHT TO HOLD WALLSTREET ACCOUNTABLE NOW! MAKE A DIFFERNENCE GET PAID!" If you are interested in calling for the end of capitalism, while making money off of capitalism, feel free to contact this email, which is contained in the ad: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the past twelve years the WFP has been at the fore front of progressive politics,
Leading the fight and helping to frame the debate. The WFP has a proud record of fighting for issues that matter and has been instrumental in implementing key pieces of legislation such as Raising New York's Minimum Wage, Enacting Living Wage Laws, Creating Thousands of Jobs In the Green Economy, Passing Healthcare Reforms on the Local Level, Fighting for Affordable Housing, Keeping Tuition Costs Low, A Progressive Tax Code, Reliable/Cost Effective Public Transit System, Public Financing Of Elections and Corporate Accountability . In addition, we have an unapologetic stance on supporting and pushing good candidates to enact progressive legislation
The WFP is seeking immediate hires.
Even more, this ad predates the "big" protests, which means that much of the "support" is fake and/or bought:
Update- And in case you simply cannot believe that the Workers Families Party would take out an ad on Craigslist, you are exceedingly wrong. If you follow the link provided in this advertisement and fill out the job form, you have the option of saying where you heard about the opportunity. Take a look what one of the options is:
Ha, this is a comedy piece right? You think people are suggesting cannibalism? Seriously?ReplyDelete
This shit is funnier than you calling OWS violent when you were the ones armed at rallies and comparing Obama to Hitler.
Which reminds me, where's your Koch support, running from investigations into illegal trade with Iran if I'm not mistaken.
You fail, big time.
Hey Hahahaha, the joke is on you and your totally astro-turfed "spontaneous" protests. The "99" don't speak for me. They speak for fools like you.ReplyDelete
Alot of people people were armed at Tea Party Rallies. How many arrests made at those events? Only armed with iPhones, "corporate logo-ed" clothing and undoubtedly wild BO, we've seen hundreds arrests.
This BS is not catching on with the American people, only a very small group of smug jackwagons like yourself.
Capitalism at its' finest! Haha at Hahahaha!ReplyDelete
capitalism disguised as socialism, lol. You can't make this stuff upReplyDelete
In Vermont: Many of the people there are astroturf and union thugs! http://vermontcampaignforliberty.org/occupy.pdfReplyDelete
Many are legitimate but it is being co-opted by the Unions!
...Anyone can take out an ad on craigslist and say they are from whomever. The wording in this ad was clearly chosen to discredit the movements. Once again, an actual grassroots movement is having mud flung at it by those who would protect the status quo. You're on the "fighting" stage of ghandis famous quote, next step we winReplyDelete
I hope the IRS is aware of this scheme and these "wages" are being taxed.ReplyDelete
Oh, yes! Tons of comments from the disgruntled and embittered lefties! "Oh, but mean Mr.Right Wing Blogger, the ever honest and trustworthy leftwing denizens of this country would never participate in a MANUFACTURED protest nor be the the puppets of someone else's agenda."ReplyDelete
Ha! You dummies are attending a "branded" event just like the ones the evil corporate overlords frequently create - 'cept your branding is just to support Obama's "tax the rich" jobs bill so he can funnel billions more to Dem front groups and friends of Pelosi types. They should rename your little crowd, "Puppetify Wall Street" -'cos you're just "leeettle puppets" for the Obama White House. Bet that ticks you off, but oh well, you got what you wanted in 08, sort of. The wunderbar, majikal Obama unicorn has quit spitting out all those dreams and has been shooting out turds for quite some time now, hasn't it? So, no wonder you people have a hard time with the truth after that let down. Losers!
