CHICAGO - So were those Trump protests really the spontaneous outbursts of outrage over the election that mainstream media led the public to believe?
No, a report on the blog Zero Hedge says. Last Saturday, one of their readers videoed five blocks of buses from the Peoria and Badger Bus Lines that they believe hauled in protestors to Chicago.
The video was taken at 3:30pm on South Canal Street in Chicago on Saturday. As [Zero Hedge's] reader points out, hundreds of the participants that took part in the downtown Chicago protests from November 12 were bused in using these vehicles. Others arrived by train.
If so, who paid for the buses? Were the protestors paid to converge onto Chicago streets? Will there be any accountability for the cost of Chicago law enforcement and security forces to protect the public and private property?
All these questions are as yet unanswered.
