Conservative Group Caught Trying To Pay Liberals To Riot
Trump Inauguration Sting Operation: Conservative Group Caught Trying To Pay Liberals To Riot – Inquisitr
Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks explained why the failed sting operation was severely flawed, not only in the legal sense but also in regards to basic human decency.
“That is not only deeply problematic legally, but think about it for a second morally. What if it had worked and they had started a riot? What are you doing? That’s not a sting operation. That is incredibly dangerous. Here are conservative groups posing as liberals trying to start violence in the streets on inauguration day.”
Uygur’s co-host, Ana Kasparian agreed, saying that the goal for the conservative group appeared to be smearing liberals and progressives as violent.
“Look, we see this happening with all kinds of political movements that conservatives don’t agree with. Occupy Wall Street, they’ll send provocateurs to the camps in order to make it seem like the people who are protesting are violent and looting.”
In Eric Byler’s exclusive for The Young Turks, counter-strike organizer Lauren Windsor caught up with Maass immediately after the sting operation.
“You think that it’s ok to pay people to commit crimes? Isn’t that what you do? You set people up that way? You offer them money to commit crimes? You know that’s illegal right?”
According to Clayton, after being confronted with the potentially illegal nature of the sting operation, Maass reportedly stated, ” I feel like I need a lawyer.”
