Huh. I keep forgetting that this is actually, you know, news:
“Remember the protests (and riots) in Ferguson last summer? It looks like at least some of the protestors were told they would be paid to show up and now they’re upset the checks haven’t arrived yet,” Katie Pavlich writes at Townhall. “Weaselzippers has the full story and the screen shots showing “protestors” using the Twitter hashtag #cutthecheck in response to non-payment. Based on tweets, Organize Missouri is responsible for issuing payments…”
I mean, I know that the so-called ‘populist Left’ is a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham. I certainly hope that my readers know this, too. But Ed and Katie and Weasel Zippers all have a point: we need to point out the Potemkin Village that is the Activist Left at every opportunity. Every little bit helps.
