Wanted: Anti-Windmill Protesters. $20 per Hour. No Experience, Skill or Intelligence Needed

If you have absolutely no job skills, and you keep getting lost in your cavernous one-room apartment — there is still a job for YOU.

Next week there will be a spontaneous demonstration against wind power, and at least a hundred protesters will be needed.  Only three people in the world are against wind power — the Koch Brothers and Donald Trump — so this “demonstration” is a perfect job opportunity for an unskilled dolt to just stand there holding a sign.  It pays $20 an hour.  If you can stand, you’re hired.

This information comes from an ad on Craigslist.  The ad was taken down as soon as the media got ahold of it, but a screenshot was captured:

Our firm needs 100 volunteers to attend and participate in a rally in front of the British Consulate/Embassy in Midtown Manhattan on the East Side on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 12 noon. The event is being held in order to protest wind turbines that are being built in Scotland and England. Your participation will be to ONLY stand next to or behind the speakers and elected officials/celebrities that will be speaking at the rally.

As you probably know, Donald Trump owns a huge golf course near the Scottish coastline.  There’s also a proposed wind turbine project nearby, and Trump doesn’t want those unsightly turbines wrecking the view from his luxury resort.  Since last spring he’s been frantically manufacturing an Astroturf “groundswell” of “public” opposition to wind power.

And now, for $20 an hour, you can join him.

Maybe next time Trump will just put a bunch of mannequins out there.

What a Cheapskate! In the 70's thousands of people marched on Washington to Protest the Governments treatment of the new revolutionary Government of Iran (the one that's in charge now).

They found out if you participated, the Iranian Government would pay your airfare, hotel and meals. A lot of people took advantage of it and (surprise!) didn't show up for the protest!

I could use a trip to Washington

Interesting, isn't it? Intentionally creating and maintaining high unemployment allows the Corporate State to recruit tools for their expansionary and permanent war policies.

Now they're doing the same to protect their Big Oil benefactors.

Jim: They'd be cheaper anyway.

jadedj: LOL. It's a deal.

Randal: Wind, the getting and the breaking thereof.

Erik: I never knew about that. LOL. Couldn't happen to nicer people.

Jess: Ah yes, a grassroots groundswell against those hated windmills.

JG: Yup, they've got it dialed. High unemployment creates lots of tool to take part in these Astroturf "demonstrations."

Life: I guess they have to know when and where to stand, and which signs to hold up.
