2. When I first heard them saying there were out of state

people being arrested, first thing that came to mind is paid agitators. Republicans will stop at nothing.

5. Sadly and frighteningly, I think there are plenty who don't need to be paid to agitate.

4. Brilliant!

I was wondering how they arrived at the 80% figure. Maybe the Southern Poverty Law Center can help them trace the groups.

12. 80% easy to figure out

How many identified by arresting data are from out of state, divided by the total arrested. Seems pretty straight forward. None of the arrested would be released until positively identified.

9. From nearby Wisconsin?

or are they coming from all over paid for by malicious groups to inflame conflict?

I know that a lot of the memes demonizing protesters came from white supremacist groups, probably Russia too.
