The left tries to paint President Trump as paranoid when he accuses them of paying protesters and it never fails – he’s right. A far left activist just confirmed that paid protesters were mixed into the anti-Kavanaugh circus and they played no small roles in the events.
Advocacy groups paid protesters opposing the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court to help create “viral moments,” including the now-famous elevator confrontation of Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., a top editor for Vice News claimed Sunday.
Shawna Thomas, appearing on ABC News‘ “This Week,” said a lot of protesters were “normal people who were mad” about Kavanaugh’s nomination. However, she also added that “we also saw people who were organized.” She singled out one of the women who confronted Flake on Sept. 28, saying that one of them worked for the advocacy group UltraViolet and “was paid” to “steer people in the right ways to be able to confront senators.”
When “This Week” host Jonathan Karl tried to clarify, Thomas added: “There were people who were paid by organizations like UltraViolet, to — to try to harness that energy in a way that would make the viral moments that we ended up seeing.”

Daily Wire reported that on its website, UltraViolet says it is a “powerful and rapidly growing community of people mobilized to fight sexism and create a more inclusive world that accurately represents all women, from politics and government to media and pop culture.”
“We fight attacks against women and work toward a proactive vision of what equality looks like for women. We demand accountability from individuals, the media, and institutions that perpetuate sexist narratives or seek to limit the rights, safety, and economic security of women. We leverage culture, politics, the news, and our rapid-response model to mobilize millions of people, quickly,” the site says.
