Confirmation of Paid Democrat Trolls?
On Thursday, Democrat tool Chad Henderson claimed to have enrolled in ObamaCare while most others' attempts failed. News organizations eagerly lapped up his story. Apparently, though, the story was "too good to check," because when someone finally did, it fell apart, discrediting Big Media, the Democrats, and ObamaCare.
Conservative and libertarian websites now are reporting the corrected story, and even some Big Media outlets reluctantly are reporting it. But almost as devastating to the left is Mr. Henderson's confession that he is being paid to post pro-Democrat propaganda on the internet:
Secondly, I work for an organization that pays me quarterly to posts [sic] the political stuff as "advocacy" (so it's kind of my job).
He claims to be employed as a "Volunteer at Organizing for America." Does that mean the president's OFA fundraising machine actually has to pay people to post Democrat talking points on other websites?
Does it also pay "trolls" to disrupt civil debate in the comment sections of conservative websites? We already know that Democrat activists illegally censor constitutionally protected free speech by pulling fire alarms when conservatives speak on college campuses; are they using similar stunts on the internet?
Mr. Henderson also claims to be a "Daycare Teacher at Flintstone Child Care Center." Does the childcare center get special tax breaks or taxpayer-funded grants? If so, will the IRS inquire as to whether any taxpayer money was used to pay employees to promote the Democrat agenda? (As Wayne Campbell once said, "it might happen...")
After being exposed as a Democrat shill, Mr. Henderson now says his Facebook post about being a paid propagandist was a "joke." But that means either that this guy is the world's worst comedian or that he's making misleading statements to cover up his earlier misleading statements.
