Democrats Recruit Protesters for GOP Town Halls
newsmax ^ | 5/17/11 | Charles J. Little

Posted on 05/17/2011 5:22:15 PM PDT by Nachum

The House Democrats’ campaign wing is trolling for Medicare protesters at town halls this week in 20 Republican-held congressional districts, The Caucus Blog of The New York Times reports. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DSCC), which has launched a website called Don’t End Medicare, will provide picket signs and budget talking points to anyone who wants to attend.

DSCC robo-calls denouncing Medicare reform are going out to seniors in Florida, Arizona, and other states in an attempt to ratchet up the noise level at constituent meetings with pro-reform lawmakers.

Republicans say House Democrats are showing more interest in GOP meetings than in their own.

And we can’t do the same?? Huh? Where’s the fire in the belly of the Tea Party? Let’s spit in their eye and make their lives miserable too!

I don’t see the problem. We knew and we know they’re going to disrupt us, so why can’t we do the same?

Except the dems aren’t holding townhalls. From what I’ve heard, they’ve been directed not to have any.

Good - when they show up and disrupt, we’ll kick their butts soundly. I’m ready for a little action anyway.

I have been to a few of my Congressman’s town hall meeting and I have never seen the press present. If the press somehow decides to show up then I will know there is a “setup” going on.

Respectfully, I don't agree.

If the Dems need to resort to community organizing and strong arm disruptive stuff, we can show that this is their world.

Tea Partiers give an excellent counter-example, a grass roots, spontaneous, visceral-but-cordial movement that has depth, honesty, purpose and momentum.

If we were to obstruct their little lie-filled pep rallies, we would be no better than they.

Like your tagline, BTW.

I heard there was a web site that list which Repubs are being targeted, when they are holding events and list some suggested left wing mantras that could be used. Does anyone have a link to this site? Forewarned really can be fore armed, if we get there first and make more noise.

Democrats Recruit Protesters for GOP Town Halls

I am not recommending, or even suggesting it, but can we speculate in depth the probable results of the GOP recruiting disrupters ("protestors") for 'RAT Town Hall meeting?

I'll start.
Violence, as in muggings that 'Rat thugs have been known to practice.
Slick quick action by the local (union) cops escorting the "pretestors" out, unlike what we normally see happen at GOP events.
A riot, which would then be blamed on "Tea Party" immaturity and irresponsibility.

It should be real interesting if they cause problems at Col. Allen West’s townhalls. No one intimidates him. Grey Eagle

They want to avoid anything exposing them for what they are.

A tactic that I have thought of is simple but potentially devastating.

When a disrupter shows up, have the Republican invite them up on stage. Have them sit or stand in a place of prominence and ask them for their name and publicly “out” them. There is nothing like shining a light on a cockroach to get them to disappear.

Yup.

I smell an opportunity. Perhaps I could recruit some MD Freepers to attend the next time Elijah Cummings does a town hall...

I love how the conservatives show up for events because their hearts are in it. The dems have to “recruit”. Mindless sheep.

Ask them some pointed questions back.

We don’t need to disrupt theirs, we just need to fill ours and not allow the illusion that our senators do not have the support they need to keep fighting! There are just too many people out there that watch only a snip of “news” and form their options, that’s it. We need to fill our town halls and help eliminate their capacity to control our message.

“Democrats are refusing to hold town halls because they are afraid to answer legitimate questions about their plan to empower unelected bureaucrats to cut Medicare and endanger seniors’ access to treatment,” said Paul Lindsay, a National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman.

MSNBC was reporting the website the other day urging viewers to go to the Town Hall meetings with Democrat talking points. This should be no surprise, it's standard political strategy.

It's up to Republicans to have a bullet proof set of answers to the well known Democrat talking points and so far they have been put on Defense, Even Bachmann was backtracking on her support of the Ryan plan after calls from angry voters. I saw a clip of her in an interview saying she was worried the Ryan plan could hurt (future) seniors.

Have these guys ever thought of having dry run mock Town hall meetings BEFORE THE REAL ONES with paid Democrats (or good actors) throwing out simulated Democrat talking points, like FNC kind of does on weekends during their mini-debates? Weeks ago I called up Ryan's office and lectured them on this and gave them some tips. (not that it does any good.) How much do we pay these morons?

Thanks for your service :)

They were pretty badly beaten up here in Wisconsin. Keep your eye on our state. We’re majorly changing our state. We broke through the two lib strongholds, Milwaukee and Madison.

I kind of feel for Illinois, they are conservative, they have to battle Chicago and East St. Louis.

Wisconsin is conservative, everyone thinks we’re lib, but it’s a SMALL demographic area that has the population that votes lib and makes it seem like we are blue. Illinois has Chicago, we only have Milwaukee. Illinois has so much more of a battle to fight than Wisconsin does.

Thank God, we broke through that barrier. And I feel (yeah, the touchy feely thing), we’ll from now on move forward with conservative values. Things have changed, dramatically. Everything you think of Wisconsin, that we’re libs, is untrue, we’ve been fighting for years and years. Gore barely won by 5000 some votes. Feingold barely won the last two elections.

We broke that barrier with Ron Johnson and David Prosser.

And now, we’re passing voter ID, the libs won’t be able to flock to our state, we’re going to have ‘true’ elections next year. We fought voter ID and won.
