After Covering Trump Protests After Election, CNN Accidentally Lets Slip Who's REALLY Promoting Them
The violent protests that took place in scattered cities did not spring from the residents of those communities, but were part of an organized effort, according to a revelation one CNN reporter let slip.
CNN reporter Jean Casarez was reporting about the unrest Wednesday when she reported these demonstrations were part of a plan.
“This was promoted by Socialist Advantage and one of the things they said the purpose of this rally was … to not only protest the election of Donald Trump the 45th president of the United States but also to protest that the Democratic party had let them down,” she reported.
Victoria Taft, writing at Independent Journal Review, noted that a group called “Socialist Alternative,” often referred to on social media as “Socialist Advantage,” was behind the protests.
She further noted that Socialist Alternative is the name of the Socialist Party’s social media arm.
The group’s website explains that “those who have been radicalized in the past period must redouble their efforts,” praising the Black Lives Matter movement for its “potential.” It also explained how only “socialist policies” can save America.
“A wave of demonstrations is being organized across the country to fight back against Trump. These protests must be the beginning of coordinated nationwide mobilizations to organize millions into a massive grassroots movement,” proclaimed Socialist Alternative’s Facebook page.
Although the protesters in the street have encountered little in the way of counter-protests, it was not so on Socialist Alternative’s Facebook page, where some criticized the group’s actions.
“I think it’s great George Soros is giving you guys $15 an hour to protest. Isn’t it amazing? Trump isn’t in office yet and he is creating jobs. See guys, he even loves the wannabe Marxist,” posted Aaron Newkirk.
“Blocking metropolitan areas and making first responders re-route to emergency calls by protesting a fair election is pretty vile. Where were you all when Bernie Sanders was cheated by the DNC? You want to complain now? Shut the front door on the way to Canada, Mexico or any other Country of your choice,” commented Levi Beers.
“If Mr. Trump is not your President, then shut your mouth and leave this country. Want to fight racism, then don’t associate with BLM (a racist group). This is a democratic country, not a socialist country. Socialism does not work. Don’t like it here, then leave, no one going to stop you. Accept the voice of the people, quit crying and acting childish. Grow up and be an American,” commented Arthur Van Riper.
