I'm no handwriting expert, but those look like 2 different writing styles to me.

I really don't think the kid made his sign.

Maybe not, but I'm guessing his mother wrote it, rather than a George Soros employee.

I heard that George Clooney and Rob Reiner made all of the signs.

These kids can't win. They're either slammed for not being good speakers, for being too polished, for having stupid signs or for having "professional-looking signs".

Now it's being implied that they're among the masses of highly-paid professional protesters.

I heard one of Hillary's e-mails showed that she used her Uranium One bribe money to purchase slave children from Benghazi. They are kept in the basement of a pizza place in DC where they work day and night painting protest signs and making threatening phone calls to Juanita Broaddrick.

Never mind that neither "font" looks remotely similar on the two signs.

Would have to agree, those signs look different.

Yeah, the handwriting on those two signs are definitely different. Someone is delusional.

Okay, at least everyone accepted that the protestors had no hand in making the signs.

Can't believe there's a debate on who did the writing on the signs.

What difference does it make?

It's been suggested that this grass roots protest is heavily funded by certain political activists groups.

I thought the Tea Party people were a bunch of assholes, but I never once thought they were paid to do it.

Why do you think this kid has been paid by someone? Are kids not able to have opinions about politics? Would you still think he was fake if the sign said, "Protect the 2nd Amendment?"

Also, why would the sign be professionally made? If paid protesting is an actual thing, wouldn't it be cheaper and easier for the prosters to make the signs themselves?

Have you ever applied reason or common sense to an idea before you release it into the world? Would you like to try it sometime? Maybe?

So what if a protest that started as a grass roots movement gets funded.
That changes nothing. The original intent still stands.

More power to them.
