Paid protestors?

When people protest against despots, dictators in other countries, the despots and dictators in those countries always attempt to delegitimize the protestors by saying that they are paid protestors. This is exactly what Trump and his minions like Sean Spicer and Sean Hannity are now doing. This is the first step in trying to put down dissent and thus preserve and expand despotic, dictatorial powers. I am protestor. I’ve marched in the streets of Washington, DC with thousands of men, women and children. I do not receive money for my dissent. Dissent is a civc duty. Particularly when you believe the democracy in which you live hangs in the balance.
