‘Spontaneous’ left-wing group with scripts hates being described as ‘scripted’

The nationally organized, local left-wing grassroots group known as Indivisible is getting pretty ticked off about being described as “scripted” — even though its members are raising their own concerns about Wisconsin Indivisible chapters working from scripts.

The outrage – at least the latest outrage – follows an op/ed last week in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel by an Nicole Tieman, communications director for U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Menomonee Falls. The piece, takes aim at the notion that the so-called Indivisible “uprisings” are part of an organic movement, instead of a scripted, well organized and, it appears, well financed national “resistance movement’ led by Democratic activists and seasoned liberal organizers.

“From where I’m sitting, ‘spontaneous grass-roots uprising’ is a gross mischaracterization of what actually is occurring on Capitol Hill and in district offices throughout the nation, and specifically here in Wisconsin,” Tieman wrote.

Uh, yeah. THOSE spontaneous groups with pre-printed signs from some local union print shop. Those protestors? Grass roots funded by georgie soros? I saw some assclown on Tucker's show the other night in charge of organizing the $15/hr gang. Course, he makes $150K/yr as the head cheese. Pretty dang good for a 20 something organizer. Not up to par with scupper lip and her news gig but not too shabby.

I know people who got involved with these groups right after Trump got elected. They were quickly disillusioned with the scripted nature of the groups. They were quick to condemn anyone who went “off script”.

No wonder they have to hire protesters. It’s more effective to pay people to stay on-script.

What does the script say about going off script?

The first rule of Script School is to never talk about Script School. The second rule of Script School is to never go off script.

Saying there is a script is going off script

Tucker's 'un-masking' phonies on the left... 'bout time some news person stopped enabling the liars. Good catch rktman.
