Ferguson Rent-A-Mob: Ranks of Rioters Filled With Paid Left-Wing Protesters

Did you think that the riots in Ferguson were just local citizens fed up with “the man”? Well, think again. It turns out that many of the protesters were actually paid agitators sent there to cause trouble for money, not for a passionate desire for “change.”

It turns out that the successor group to Missouri’s ACORN group was paying “protesters” $5,000 a month[1] to go out and stir trouble.

We know this because some of the protesters haven’t been paid and, now, they are demanding what they were promised. They held a sit-in at the offices of Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) and posted a demand letter online.

MORE is the rebranded Missouri branch of the former Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) which filed for bankruptcy in late 2010. That ACORN state chapter reconstituted itself in December 2009 as MORE under orders from ACORN’s national headquarters. President Obama used to work for ACORN and he represented it in court as a lawyer. (See my previous article on MORE.)

MORE has been active in the Ferguson protests and in efforts to free jailed demonstrators so they can continue vandalizing businesses, intimidating perceived adversaries, setting fires, throwing projectiles and human waste at cops, and engaging in the Left’s usual modes of so-called nonviolent protest. MORE believes that protesters should be given a blank check to inflict whatever harm they wish on the community in pursuit of social justice.

So, the “protests” we are seeing in Ferguson (and also New York and Baltimore, truth be told) are not just angry citizens but are fake, rent-a-mobs who expect to be paid while they cry “no justice, no peace.”

It’s all liberal theater, folks. Fake. Fiction.
