Some protesters being paid to attend Occupy Wall Street rallies

It should come as no surprise that days after it was revealed that George Soros funded organizations are involved in the Occupy Wall Street protests, other organizations are also putting up money for the movement, and in some cases, paying protesters to attend and picket.

A liberal organizer told the Daily Caller on Thursday afternoon that he paid some Hispanics to attend “Occupy DC” protests happening in the nation’s capital.

TheDC attended the protest event, an expansion of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement that began in New York City. Some aspects of the protest, it turned out, are more Astroturf than grassroots.

Interviewed in Spanish, the protesters told conflicting stories about how their group was organized. Some said it was organized at their church, and that they were there as volunteers. Others, however, referred to the man from the DC Tenants Advocacy Coalition — the only Caucasian in the group — as their “boss.” - Daily Caller

Interesting dychotomy between conservative and progressive movements.  Tea Party advocates come out voluntarily, but the Occupy Wall Street protesters need to be paid to attend... and they don't even know what they are protesting against.
