Via The Shark Tank:
The continued assault on Congressman Allen West by the progressive/Democrat establishment has taken a new twist as a mysterious group is now soliciting prospective protesters online and paying them for their “protesting” services. The probable Soros-backed group Stand Up Florida is now specifically campaigning against Congressman West in the 18th congressional district that he is running for re-election in. Here’s the link to Stand Up Florida’s website which makes no attempt to hide their contempt for West. Stand Up Florida’s advertisement is now on Craig’s List (screen capture below) that calls on folks in N.Palm Beach, Martin, and St.Lucie counties-the counties that lie within West’s new district- to get out and protest their little hearts out in order to defeat Congressman West.
But why can’t the Democrat Party muster up their own protesters to get out there and protest West? Where are all the die-hard Democrats, Emily’s Listers, the Moveon.org-ers, or the #OWS troopers who have vowed to hit the pavement for them?
Well, I don’t know if any of the protesters are occupiers (probably) but they’re definitely using an “Occupy” theme. The video, below, was posted on YouTube, last week, by the user, StandUpFL2012.
It’s pretty pitiful that they have to pay people to hold signs, even more pitiful that the sad sacks are given scripts to recite for StandUpFL’s “man on the street” interviews on YouTube. The first woman flubs her lines at first: “I want Allen West to come clean…about…who he’s supporting….(not supporting, lady – representing)…who he’s representing – whether he’s representing his constituents or whether he’s representing the big oil companies who are funding his campaign.”
The theme for this protest seemed to be “Big Oil is causing the high gas prices”. The video only runs for one minute, forty-six seconds, but it’s a very long and cringeworthy 1:46. I actually feel bad for these poor slobs.
