Did George Soros Hire Agent Provocateurs to Provoke in Charlottesville?

I see where some are promoting the idea that George Soros may have hired agent provocateurs to provoke the alt-right in Charlottesville last weekend.

This Craig's List ad is the evidence provided. It allegedly appeared a week before the protest:

The problem with this, of course, is the ad is for Charlotte, NC, not Charlottesville, VA. The distance between the two, according to Google maps, is 272.1 miles, if you head north by taking I-85 and US 29.

But even if there was a similar ad in Charlottesville, the idea that you can hire people on the spot to act as provocateurs is a bit much. A billionaire that I am familiar with in the clothing sector (You would recognize the label.), once needed protesters for, let's put it this way, a "situation" in Washington D.C.

His law firm put an ad in Craig's List very similar to the one above, offering $120.00 a day. I was on the periphery of this thing and so when one of the lawyers involved met with the "protesters"  to plan out the protest, I tagged a long. To a man (and they were almost all men who answered the ad), the thinking seemed to be the same: Hey, the money is good. I will yell out any crazy thing you want but if the police come, or things get otherwise heavy, I'm out of there.

With a week's notice, you are not going to be able to hire serious thugs through a Craig's List ad. The idea is preposterous. People answering the ad are looking for easy money, not to risk getting arrested or hit over the head for a cause they have no interest in.

The Anifa is coordinated enough and large enough, they don't need Craig's List mercenary-lites.



  1. I suspect that the core number of real Soros cadres and "strategy of tension" folks get paid real money to do the dirty and potentially get jailed. The rent-a-crowds are used to portray a larger event than is really happening. Do you think there would be a Trump press conference, Obama tweets, 24/7 news coverage of an event like that if only 20-30 people showed up on each side? I can recall periodically seeing events like that on TeeVee news back in the day when I watched such things and it not even registering with anybody.

    Remember also, the previous night's tiki torch rally that was used to set the stage for the Saturday main event. The photos on newspaper front pages showed a bit of a crowd, none of which were arrested or got involved in violence. BTW, where'd they buy those tiki torches? Who paid? I'd bet someone at a Lowes or Home Depot or supermarket knows. Would be interesting to get their take.

  2. There are reports of Antifa, BLM & hired protesters being bussed in. Why is it so difficult to believe that they put an ad for actors to increase the appearance of the amount of crowd to supplement Soros & DNC hired THUGS! This is not the first time that these type of ads appeared during and after the 2016 campaign.
