About this rating Is ProtestJobs.com a Real Service for Hiring Protesters?
329 Best Activist Art images in 2020 | Activist art, Art, Protest art"Most in the FAKE NEWS media will claim there's no such thing as a paid liberal protester."
DemandProtest.com and ProtestJobs.com were similar “paid protesters for hire” websites that sprang into being around the same time (i.e., coincident with President Donald Trump’s January 2017 inauguration), and went dormant soon afterwards. The former garnered a fair amount of right-wing news coverage and then was quickly revealed as a hoax, while the latter drew little attention and quietly petered out after a few weeks before essentially admitting the site was satirical in nature:
As is common with fake business websites, ProtestJobs.com used stock photos to represent the faux “customers” who contributed personal testimonials, and it offered no way for putative customers to order or pay for its services (providing only a generic contact form that produced nothing but a “Sorry, it seems that our mail server is not responding” error message).

As well, the “Protest Package” option listings on ProtestJobs.com included multiple entries intended to be ludicrously humorous, such as “Car/Dumpster fire upgrade option available,” “Broken store front window included in all EZ-RIOT packages,” and “Free National Parks tweet comparing the size of your protest to the inauguration.”
For a tongue-in-cheek discussion of this phenomenon, we recommend Rex Huppke’s discourse on his “Paid Liberal Protester Employment Contract,” obtained — naturally enough — through the website paidliberalprotester.com.
