Radical recruiting paid anti-war organizers...., that most radical of radical liberal groups that has moved into the Shenandoah Valley, is recruiting college kids for paid positions to organize anti-war rallies.

Where is the media to report on this? George Soros and liberal Hollywood money is being poured into tearing this country apart ... yet the MSM remains silent.

I've organized many Support the Troops rallies but I've never been paid for any of it. In fact, everything I do is volunteer. Everyone who helps does the same -- it's something they believe in and they give their time and money to help. Many are military families who don't have that much time or money to spare in the first place ... but it's important to them that America stand united.

Along comes -- again -- to throw around their billions of dollars to buy people into positions to go up against our country.

They should be called Anti-America paid positions.

Keep in mind this is the group Augusta County democrats Lee Godfrey and Cliff Garstang defend. Ms. Godfrey even has her name in the hat to run for Augusta County Board of Supervisors.

Here is the email announcement that is circulating around college campuses.
