A video showing a line of buses bringing in anti-Trump protesters from Wisconsin to Chicago contradicts the assertion by USA Today that the protests are “spontaneous,” a report said.
According to Zero Hedge, the video it received from a reader, is “visual confirmation of how a substantial portion of these professional, paid protesters arrive at the site of the protest, in this case Chicago.”
A USA Today profile had characterized the anti-Trump protests as “spontaneous, involving people from all walks of life.”
According to Wikileaks documents, however, “at least two of the people profiled by USA Today have a history of being professional agitators for the Democratic Party, whose task is to stir up popular protests and – in extreme cases – unleash rioting,” which the violent protests in Portland revealed, Zero Hedge reported on Nov. 13.
One of the protesters profiled by USA Today as an unaffiliated citizen is Yong Jung Cho. In a February 2016 email from the Podesta files, Yong Jung Cho is described as “350 Action Campaign Coordinator”. A profile on netrootsnation identifies her as an activist against fracking, a coordinator for the People’s Climate March and an anti-coal fighter in Connecticut.
Another anonymous protester cited by USA Today is Phil Roeder, a former Obama campaign organizer.
According to the reader who sent in the video: “I have a video of 5 city blocks on the West side of Chicago lined with buses from Wisconsin (Badger Bus Lines) bringing in protesters. The Sears tower is visible in the background.”
The video can be seen below:
The video was taken at 3:30pm on South Canal Street in Chicago on Nov. 12.
