Protesters Paid to Occupy CPAC


Daily Caller reporter Michelle Fields caught up with some Occupiers outside CPAC to find out why they were protesting. Some of them didn’t have any idea what they were doing there, other than to collect the $60 per head they were being paid by a union to be there.

Fields talked to other protesters who had no idea what they were protesting. One guy said “I don’t even know what this is about. I’m from North Carolina.” Another guy who speaks Spanish didn’t even know what his sign said.

The funniest thing about the Occupiers outside CPAC is that most people inside the conference never even saw or heard them. The place is so big, unless you went outside you wouldn’t have known they were there.

I talked to one guy who said he had left the premises to go somewhere and walked through the protest. He was shoved out of the blue by an Occupod. Another CPAC attendee was walking close behind and saw the whole thing, so he kicked the Occupod in a sensitive area and brought him to his knees. I wonder if that guy got any sort of bonus.
