Republican town hall meetings–and the ruckus that surrounds them–have been in the news for weeks now.
By all appearances, the angry gatherings are rather confusing.
Republican congressmen visit their district and are greeted with angry constituents. The overwhelming majority attending these meetings appear to be liberals–angry liberals. Lots of them.
But this is odd, no? Why would a Republican congressman be voted into office by a district that–by all appearances at the town hall meetings–radiates “I Stand With Her” vibes?
It isn’t odd–it’s just a lie, a protest. Constituents who attempt to be heard are drowned out by anti-Trump protest groups.
Now those protestors are the basket of deplorables!
According to The Daily Caller:
Leaked audio from an anti-Trump protest group meeting reveals activists with anti-Trump group Indivisible plotting how to best manufacture a hostile environment at a town hall with Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana on Friday.
The audio, obtained by local radio station KPEL, reveals a coordinated effort to create the public impression that Cassidy’s support for Trump is unpopular with his constituents. The activists, who describe themselves as liberals in the audio, can be heard strategizing how to best turn a local town hall into a political victory.
The activists split up into an “inside team” — tasked with occupying “as many seats as we can” and an “outside team,” whose job was to “give [the media] the coverage they want” before joining the others inside. Activists were instructed to dress like conservatives and leave at home “any signifier that you’re a liberal” in order to blend in with constituents.
The leftist activists strategized how best to “dominate” the question-and-answer section of the town hall and keep anyone “sympathetic” to Cassidy from asking a question.
The audio also reveals the activists laughing about “the poor people of Breaux Bridge” — local constituents — who might get stuck behind them. Local news coverage of the town hall said that “many attendees were turned away” from the town hall due to “capacity restrictions.”
Ahhh, the sweet smell of tyranny of the minority. This IS NOT a protest.
This is an anti-Trump protest group successfully blocking and silencing constituents from speaking with their congressman.
These protest groups are not yielding any solution but, instead, creating greater problems. They are not interested in democratic practices or constructive dialogue.
Like a three year old who has to play with others and share their toys, they will continue with their tantrums, pity parties, and bullying until they finally get their way.
Groups like Indivisible just can’t get over the fact they lost.
And so, instead of respect our country and our leaders, they obstruct the processes of a democratic Republic.
