Not sure if the video below is real or not–perhaps it was created to make the Wall Street protesters look bad–but this Chicago “protester” appears to say that he’s getting paid to complain about corporate greed.
(He talks about this around the 2:30 mark and then closes by saying his “benefactors” are getting their money’s worth).
And if that’s true, it raises a host of questions:
- How many of the “protesters” are getting paid?
- Who is paying them?
- Do the ones who are not getting paid know that some of their brethren are making more for chanting and holding signs than most Americans with actual jobs?
Let’s start with the first couple:
Who is this guy? Is he actually a protester? Or an actor being paid to undercut the movement?
If he’s not an actor, how many of the protesters are getting paid?
And who’s paying them?
