Now We Know: Those 'Spontaneous' Anti-Trump Airport Protests Weren't Spontaneous At All

The mainstream press widely, and falsely, reported that the carefully planned airport protests against President Trump's executive order on refugees were a spontaneous public reaction. (Ronen Tivony/NurPhoto/Sipa USA/Newscom)There was always something fishy about the outbreak of "spontaneous" protests at airports around the country in the immediate wake of President Trump's executive order pausing visas and refugees from terror-prone countries.

Not that you'd suspect anything from the way they were covered. Nearly every story published over that weekend stated without equivocation that the protests were an unplanned and visceral reaction to Trump's executive order. Examples:

"Spontaneous Protests Hit Airports Across America Following Trump's Executive Order"

"Protest Grows 'Out of Nowhere' at Kennedy Airport"

"The senseless cruelty of the executive order has led to spontaneous protests at many of America's major airports."

"Word of the spontaneous demonstration was spread across social media."

But these protests weren't spontaneous at all. They were, in fact, the result of months of careful planning by hard-core left-wing activist groups.

"News reports and TV broadcasts about the week's protests described the events as 'spontaneous protests' mounted in response to the Trump administration's travel and immigration executive order," author Asawin Suebsaeng writes at the liberal leaning Daily Beast. "But to Make the Road New York, and the groups like it across the country, there was nothing 'spontaneous' about it."

Suebsaeng notes that "professional organizers had been waiting and planning for this type of mass, direct action — ready-made to go viral on social media — even since, well Nov. 9." These professional organizers, he says have been "anticipating and mapping out their battle plans for Trump's orders on deportations, bans, and detention."

The executive director of the Arab American Action Network told Suebsaeng that "we had been laying the groundwork for this for a long, long time."

Anyone with a brain knows those people that showed up at airports to protest were paid to do so . How many people do you know who can miss time from their jobs, absorbed the cost of travel and pay for lodging to protest for people they don't know ? The Nazi George Sorso money is behind the protest ! George Soros lost millions in supporting the criminal con artist hillary rotten clinton for US President .

These people HAVE TO start being incarcerated!

Yep, right behind the rifle range.  Survivors will be given a second chance at GITMO!

i knew from the very beginning that this was another lie coming out of the the big lying demon rat party. the vermin needs to be erradicated

left wing socialists

The organizers of these things are by in large,  left free to do their damage. Accountability is the key to getting a handle on all the nonsense. If protesters destroy stuff, guess who pays? That's not been the case up until now, this needs to be changed! If they have the money to start them they need to pay to clean up the mess left by it! 

It figures another Muslim Brother hood not doubt  funded Saudi Arab Money.

It's called a "flash mob" and it is made possible by social media and the instantaneous communications via Twitter and other such "chat" services. The participants are alerted to the riot site via their "smart" phones and they respond with a vigor that is amazing.  

That is the reason that Red Chinese authorities disabled Twitter, Facebook, and the other so-called social media that was and is being used for seditionary purposes.

So you're saying these are "Flash Mobs" springing up spontaneously via social media; but just happen to show up with professionally, pre-printed signs with the sponsoring organization identified at the bottom?  

Is that your story?  

Are you really going to stick with that one?  

Nancy Pelosi must be one of your heroes!

Something has to be done and if you think email are the trick think again. WHERE IS THE TEA PARTY????? I receive emails and at the end they only ask for money. I have not seen ONE TEA PARTY demonstration. What will happen people will feel left out and leave. So if any one reads this.

                                            THINK

THAT is what I want to know, before I contribute again to the TEA party, I MUST SEE ACTION.

Actually, I think that having mass protests, either for or against something, by conservatives, would be a bad idea, at this time.

I fear that the left would do some kind of violent reaction, and the lib media would find a way to blame the the conservatives, just as they have with the Berkeley riots where they blamed the riot on the speaker for his pro USA stance.

Right now the idiot left is doing a better job of opening people's eyes than we could ever do.

I was reading yesterday about states that are starting to pass legislation that could result in rioters, and their money people, being held responsible for the costs associated with the "protests", and people could be jailed for violent "protests".  Some of these bills would make it legal for a person to harm rioters if they felt threatened by them.  Some of the bills being presented are written and sponsored by democrats. 

Let them continue to tick off the good people, especially the sensible democrats, and there are a lot of them.

ALERT ALERT

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
