FAR LEFT Advertises on Craig’s List for Paid Activists to Fight Wall Street

We all knew this was happening. We just didn’t think they’d be so open about it.

In case you had any doubt that these Wall Street protests were being manufactured by the far left, there’s this–

The pro-Obama Working Families Party of New York, a group that shares the same address as the SEIU and ACORN in New York, posted this advertisement on Craig’s list. They are looking for energetic progressives to help them to fight to hold Wall Street accountable. And the pay is $350-$650 a week depending on the responsibility and length of time of staff.

Here’s their ad:

The Working Families Party (WFP) (www.workingfamiliesparty.org) is New York’s most energetic, independent and progressive political party. Formed in 1998 by a grassroots coalition of community organizations, neighborhood activists, and labor unions, we came together to build a society that works for all of us, not just Wall Street CEOs and the well-connected. WFP is independent from corporate and government funding and in-addition we are community based; community funded and equally uninfluenced by both major parties. Our agenda focuses on economic and social justice, corporate accountability, job creation, environmental protection, and investment in education and healthcare.

For the past twelve years the WFP has been at the fore front of progressive politics,

Leading the fight and helping to frame the debate. The WFP has a proud record of fighting for issues that matter and has been instrumental in implementing key pieces of legislation such as Raising New York’s Minimum Wage, Enacting Living Wage Laws, Creating Thousands of Jobs In the Green Economy, Passing Healthcare Reforms on the Local Level, Fighting for Affordable Housing, Keeping Tuition Costs Low, A Progressive Tax Code, Reliable/Cost Effective Public Transit System, Public Financing Of Elections and Corporate Accountability . In addition, we have an unapologetic stance on supporting and pushing good candidates to enact progressive legislation

The WFP is seeking immediate hires.

You must be an energetic communicator, with a passion for social and economic justice.

Only outgoing, articulate dedicated, determined candidates will be considered for the positions.

For those candidates that qualify WFP offers substantial paid-training provided by senior leadership, on varied issues such as: advocacy, public speaking, mobilizing, fundraising, networking and organizing. We invest in passionate people with excellent communication skills and a full benefits package is offered to those candidates that qualify. In addition, there is opportunity for advancement and travel to our satellite chapters and out of state affiliates.

This is not a policy job! Through direct action you will be shaping NY state politics for the next 20 years.

If you care about New York and want to help educate and mobilize around legislative campaigns-then we look forward to hearing from you!
Apply at http://www.workingfamiliesparty.org/jobs/.

Hat Tip Mara

For the record, the Working Families Party is a member of the Hexagon of Progress.

Once again… the Working Families Party shares the same address as the SEIU and ACORN and was listed as an affiliate of ACORN.

    Meanwhile, the Media soldiers on with their internationalist duties:

    Occupy Wall Street protests have a spiritual side
    “… when they embody visions of a possible future that influence the larger social imagination, and when they sculpt the desires of the protestors themselves for the better. In these ways, resistance can become symbolic action, protests become like religious ritual — and in those ways, even more important.”

    The New Party is the cover-up name for the Communist Paty USA. They knew they could not win with someone running as a Commie. So in 1996 Barack Obama won the State seat in Illinois and he was in “the New Party” I read it was a big deal at the tiime the first one to win.

    or something like that, you know, like ACORN has over 300 affiliates under
    it’s Umbrella, yes, they are extremely well organized, but just like anything,

    Since this site has chosen to ignore the speech Sarah Palin gave on Friday….
    I submit a video you should watch. This is what I consider to be one of, if not the best, speech that Sarah Palin has ever given.

    Question… after you watch it, do you really think any of the Republican candidates could or would be able to make a similar speech? That is why she is not running. She has a more important mission…. to attack the entire corrupt political system and to promote Conservative principles.

    The problem is that the left has had years and years and years of time to get organized while we were busy being productive and taking care of ourselves.

    Now they have control over academia, entertainment, education and above all, the media. We are thirteen months away from kicking these people out for good.

    You will never accomplish what we need until every single person on our side, including those ELECTED officials do something about what is affectionately referred to as MSM.

    They have waged war on us (to the extent they damn near let the terrorist win) and elected themselves a president. They coordinate the DEM party attack plans and give 24/7 free media through all tv stations except FOX and most major print.

    I watched an entire segment smearing Clarence Thomas this morning on GMA. Why? They need him off Obamacare. The View is saying this mob is no different from the tea party that spit. These LIES are repeated over and over and over and over until they make them FACTS. This is the enemy.

    These are Obama’s Rent-A-Mobs. Why should they hide it? Who is to know that does not get their news from online? Half these kids that can VOTE only know what Jon says.

  • owl

    Hellooooo you WATERGATE news hounds. You super duper SNIFFERS of all secrets profound.

    I guess RENT-A-MOBS by a president is not on the par with a third rate bungling burgary that Nixon did not want to snitch on his friends?

    Dang shame those WATERGATE professionals can’t find their sneakers and trenchcoats.

    If you believe this propaganda by the far rightwing haters you are completely gullible beyond words!! WAKE UP PEOPLE you are being LIED TO!!!

  • Dave

    Brilliant deduction, Prostrength! I guess that means you didn’t follow the link and see the information on the WFP website. Great point about being lied to, though. But by whom?

  • bg


    pardon the source:

    [New York’s Working Families Party was first organized in 1998 by a coalition of labor unions, ACORN and other community organizations, members of the now-inactive national New Party, and a variety of public interest groups such as Citizen Action of New York.[citation needed] The party blends a culture of political organizing with unionism, 1960s idealism, and tactical pragmatism. The party’s main issue concerns are jobs, health care, education and energy/environment. It has usually cross-endorsed Democratic or Republican candidates through fusion voting, but has occasionally run its own candidates.]

    New Party

    [Illinois: The first NP member heads to Congress, as Danny Davis wins an overwhelming 85% victory yesterday (he got a higher percentage of the vote in that district than the President). NP member and State Senate candidate Barack Obama won uncontested. Interestingly, it appears that the local Democratic machine is trying to distance itself from our folks. At a “Democratic Unity” march on Chicago’s West Side, a flyer invited community members to join with a host of local democratic candidates. The only two west-side Democrats not listed: NP members Danny Davis (U.S. House candidate) and Michael Chandler (Alderman and Ward Committeeman).]

    “Democratic Unity”

    [The Socialist Party of America announced in their October 2009
    newsletter that 70 Congressional democrats currently belong to
    their caucus.]

    there are more than 70, including Pelosi, but whatever; as it’s evident
    that, other than being an Islamist, it’s the thing to be these days, and
    albeit some links have been secreted away, scroll thread for more info..


  • Jeff

    Hey, I realize it can be satisfying making up self-confirming conspiracy theories here in the comments section but did anyone actually see where in the ad the WFP is hiring protesters??

    This sounds like an ad for a canvasser… those annoying college-age kids that bug you on the street for a donation for whatever cause. Definitely annoying, hardly the work of a vast conspiracy…

    [But communists could not be wrong. After all, their knowledge was
    scientific, based on historical materialism, an understanding of the
    dialectical process in nature and human society, and a materialist (and
    thus realistic) view of nature. Marx has shown empirically where society
    has been and why, and he and his interpreters proved that it was destined
    for a communist end. No one could prevent this, but only stand in the way
    and delay it at the cost of more human misery. Those who disagreed with
    this world view and even with some of the proper interpretations of Marx
    and Lenin were, without a scintilla of doubt, wrong. After all, did not Marx
    or Lenin or Stalin or Mao say that. . . . In other words, communism was
    like a fanatical religion. It had its revealed text and chief interpreters. It
    had its priests and their ritualistic prose with all the answers. It had a
    heaven, and the proper behavior to reach it. It had its appeal to faith.
    And it had its crusade against nonbelievers.

    What made this secular religion so utterly lethal was its seizure of all
    the state’s instrument of force and coercion and their immediate use
    to destroy or control all independent sources of power, such as the
    church, the professions, private businesses, schools, and, of course,
    the family.

  • Um. Really?

    So let me get this straight… a grassroots business / political party that is not being controlled by corporate entities, is offering paid JOB opportunities to people to work in their agency… and by the way… no mention of “paying people to be protesters” as this article would lead you to believe initially. It appears to be a legitimate job offer. But I’m sure that nobody in other political spectrums ever hires people because that would be… awful?

    All we want is a stronger economy so there is hope for our future and for our children’s future. Do you really think it is productive to be so divisive in a time when the world has turned upside down? Why shouldn’t this be the right time to come together, bridge political spectrums and generational gaps and work together to improve our lives and our futures. There is strength in numbers. United we stand, divided we fall. Will you decide to stand together? Or fall into the traps these divisive media trolls and politicians would like us to fall into? Think for yourself, consider all sides and make your own decisions.

  • As an Occupier

    As an occupier, and someone who is actually in the thick of all of this, I can assure you despite what you no doubt must be hearing, myself and fellow protesters are for the majority NOT Obama supporters. We (these people) are protesting because there is something fundamentally wrong with the political system. We are people who no longer trust our politicians (regardless of political ideation) to do their jobs and serve the American people. It is corrupt, the federal reserve is corrupt and has destroyed our economy and a major reform is needed. Our desires are not so far off from yours. I’m not sure where you are getting your information from, but you are being misinformed. And why is it that all you can do is call people names. Don’t you have anything constructive, intelligent or helpful to say? This whole website and thread is just sad, misinformed and embarrassing for you all.

    Keep looking to divide so the Powerz can conquer your sorry ass. Or get out there and make a difference instead of writing articles that paint the OWS protestors as paid shills for liberal campaigns.
