Astroturf in Copenhagen

As thousands of Americans turned out for townhall meetings and tea parties across the nation during the summer and fall, Nancy Pelosi and others said the protesters were astroturf, not grass roots.  Today John Hinderaker at Powerline shares an image of what real astroturf looks like.  It is short, so I reproduce it here in its entirety, but please click on his link:

Earlier today, thousands of protesters turned out in Copenhagen to demonstrate in favor of an economy-wrecking climate deal. This is how they looked:

Note the identical, professionally printed, color-coordinated yellow and black signs. This is what Astroturf--fake grass roots--looks like. The signs use the same colors as the International ANSWER signs that are ubiquitous at far-left rallies here in the U.S., but carry no identifier. It would be interesting to know who paid for the signs, and whether the same organization that bought the signs also paid for the demonstrators.
Compare that to some of my Tea Party Express photos taken in Atlanta last month ago by clicking here.
