Tony Perkins: Planned Parenthood Is Paying Protesters $1500/Week To Demonstrate Against Donald Trump

Via press release from hate group leader Tony Perkins:

No wonder there are so many anti-Trump protests. Apparently, there’s good money to be made in joining them! Barely a week after his election, Donald Trump is already creating jobs. Thanks to Planned Parenthood Action, Americans can make a good living joining their phony demonstrations against the president-elect. Craigslist ads like “STOP TRUMP — up to $1,500/week. Hiring immediately. Call today, start tomorrow! $15-18 hourly rate + bonus + overtime, up to 77 hours per week!” have been running in major cities like Denver and Philadelphia for weeks. Clearly, the end of the election has only been the beginning of another phase of manufactured outrage.

“I wouldn’t be shocked that this group is going the extra mile to undermine the legitimate transfer of power,” said former senator Scott Brown, who watched the marches sweep through his own city of Boston. “It comes to question whether they are using taxpayer money appropriately or even legally. This goes above and beyond their duty and ability to provide services for women.”

Of course, questions have been swirling around Planned Parenthood’s use of taxpayer dollars for years. And while it’s illegal for Cecile Richards’s group to spend a penny of the government’s money on political advocacy, a full bank account certainly gives them the flexibility to. The reality is this: Any group that can afford to spend $30 million influencing an election doesn’t need a half-billion in taxpayer assistance. For too long, Americans have been on the hook for the group’s corruption while women who need honest and safe care take a backseat to Planned Parenthood’s politics. (And unpopular politics at that!)

In the meantime, talk about an embarrassing display of the Left’s crumbling support. Cecile Richards’s group is so desperate for “followers” that it has to invent some. The Craigslist ads are exposing this movement for the mirage it is. This is exactly the kind of deceptiveness that we’ve come to expect from the Left. In this just-finished election Americans had a front-row seat to the dirty tricks liberals were using to disrupt Trump rallies — and worse, cheat the system.

Claims about Planned Parenthood paying protesters are also being promoted by Fox News and multiple right wing outlets.

  • GayOldLady

    Half of Trump supporters would be working for Planned Parenthood if this was the truth.

  • BrianQTD

    Boy are they grasping at straws here. Actually these are ads for canvassers to solicit donations on the street. The money made depends on amount of signatures and those who sign up. Right wingers don’t do nuance or detail so I’m not surprised they are too stupid to investigate what it’s really about.

    • Shy Guy

      They don’t care. They’re just building up more anger and resentment, so they’ll all cheer when the bill to defund goes through.

  • Rex

    He’s just pissed because he didn’t think of using paid protesters as a fund-raising scam first.

    • safari

      He can’t afford to pay protesters.

      • Rex

        No, but he could beg for money to pay the protesters then not actually pay anyone and claim how successful the protests were. You have to think like a con man with no conscience.

        • safari

      This was proven very true after that sham of an election last week.

      They want to reverse Roe v Wade, then open secret private abortion clinics and then actually, and totally for real sell baby parts. Would not shock me one bit.

      That is the truth. When they blame you take a good look at what they are doing and you will find that the person or people who accuse you are also doing the same thing themselves.

  • DN

    Well finally I have an answer to the timeframe it takes to get this magical $1,500…

    I’ve been asking for a long time – is that fifteen hundred per protest? Per day? Per week? Per month?

    Incidentally, $1,500 a week = $78,000. Pretty decent pay – if it weren’t bullshit.

    • Dean Gold

      It’s a week like god created the heavens and earth and everything in it in 6 days and rested to end his week.

      You have to remember that Planned Parenthood has such a huge excess of money in its coffers. And they have nothing better to do with that money than to pay protesters.

    A college professor who is also a Trump suppository (typo and it stays) told me that his income just doubled when Trump was elected. He teaches at a community college in Arkansas, if that tells you anything. This is the new post-truth world and apparently you can say or believe anything. I can’t wait to check in with him again in six months and see if he tried to finance a home loan with the raise Trump gave him.

    Tony Perkin’s is an enemy of the LGBTQ and a national menace.
    His top lieutenant, a senior fellow at the FRC is Ken Blackwell. Blackwell was quietly appointed last week as Donald Trump’s senior advisor on Trump’s transition team. The sex gestapo is loose in the White House and I fear dark days ahead for the LGBTQ.

    I’m sure that the thousands of protesters across the country are only there because Planned Parenthood is paying 1500 bucks a week. Trump’s campaign of lies, hate, racism and loss of the popular vote couldn’t possibly have anything to do with it.

  • Kelly Lape

    I’d say the $1500 is what he pays protesters. Naturally he assumes that’s the going rate and no one would do it for free, because he has to pay to get his “supporters” out into the streets. It’s called projection.

    OK, Christanists? I know you don’t think this way when it comes to spending billions to avoid ‘paying for’ any health care that or for anyone *you* don’t approve of via a negligible fraction of your insurance premiums, but if Planned Parenthood could pay all the milions of protestors *that* kind of money, they coulda just said ‘Screw your Federal funding’ all along.

    What you are looking at there is a *Craigslist ad* for a *canvassing operation.* The promised pay for those, like so many other such things, may be found to be somewhat less in reality than such ads imply, to say the least.

  • Paul Horner, who wrote many of the fake news stories that went viral during the election, told the Washington Post this week he made up Craigslist ads just like the one Tony mentions just so he could write a fake news story for click bait.

    • Friday

      In this case it’s probably just a canvassing outfit for various causes promising more than canvassers can actually get as usual… Real or not that’s the exact format. Reality is they send people door to door asking for money and they get a small portion if they get any donations.

    • Bad Tom

      That should be illegal. It really should.

    (Just cause it needs repeating, ) Err, people? That’s an ad for a canvassing operation for some unspecified cause.

  • Peter Wong

    Some Trump supporters I ran into online claimed the anti-Trump protests were the work of ex-Democratic strategist Bob Creamer. So even if I bothered giving Tony Perkins a modicum of credibility, it’s not worth taking at face value.
    It sounds to me like the ad he’s citing could just as well apply to organizations seeking organizers or fundraisers as to alleged paid protesters. But then the concept of moral or political opposition to Trump is probably alien to Perkins’ mental frame.
