The Protest Warriors

One of my correspondents alerted me to these guys -- the Protest Warriors. They infiltrate left wing demonstrations with sly subversive signs. They delight in tweaking lefty twits. They also perform a public service by exposing a lot of the careful stage- management that lies behind some of these supposedly "spontaneous" displays. See, for instance, this analysis of how the San Francisco Chronicle manipulated images of a protest rally.

Thanks, J. B.
