PSYOP. It's all theater.

You could be right and it did occur to me, but the Yakuza run those sound trucks and, well, you've heard of the Yakuza I'm sure. If it was theater wouldn't they have asked the F__k You Trump protestors to kindly step aside? Or maybe they were there to add an element of verisimilitude to the whole thing. This is coming from a guy who, like you, believes that most everything is staged nowadays, but the article was interesting.

Yeah, I think theywere there, like you've said, "to add an element of verisimilitude."

I don't think it was grassroots at all. Like most things nowadays. They're either hijacked or completely staged.
