“Spontaneous” Demonstrations: The Attack of the Rent-A-Drones
During the next few weeks, hundreds of spontaneous rallies and demonstrations will be breaking out all over America. Millions of hardworking everyday Americans are perfectly happy with their health insurance carrier. And they’re just boiling mad that Obama wants to come barging in and ruin this beautiful relationship.
They’re in such an uncontrollable rage, they’ll be demonstrating and calling names and shouting out threats and insults when Democratic congressmen are home for the August recess. Again now, these protests will all be spontaneous — the heartfelt outpourings of these people’s love for private insurance companies and their hatred of government bureaucrats.
Ready now, on the count of three — Be Spontaneous.
A few shadowy propaganda organizations have been orchestrating anti-reform demonstrations all over the country. They’re targeting Democratic congressmen when they appear at local town hall meetings. These puppets are instructed to be as loud and aggressive as possible. The sole purpose of these protests is to “rattle” and “shake up” the speaker and drown out the proceedings. Constructive dialogue and debate are NOT part of the plan.
Most of the town hall protests that I wrote about in my previous post were organized by these same slippery Astroturf groups. I still think — as I was saying in that post — that our representatives need to get out there and attend these meetings, whatever happens. If they can’t stand to get yelled at and have signs waved at them, they’re in the wrong line of work.
These phony “grassroots” organizations include FreedomWorks and Americans For Prosperity. Another corporate front group — Patients United — is busing people all over the country for the sole purpose of protesting and rallying against Democratic congressmen.
Here’s part of a leaked memo from FreedomWorks, giving instructions to their mules:
“— Artificially Inflate Your Numbers: Spread out in the hall and try to be in the front half. The objective is to put the Rep on the defensive with your questions and follow-up. The Rep should be made to feel that a majority, and if not, a significant portion of at least the audience, opposes the socialist agenda of Washington.
— Be Disruptive Early And Often: You need to rock-the-boat early in the Rep’s presentation, Watch for an opportunity to yell out and challenge the Rep’s statements early.
— Try To “Rattle Him,” Not Have An Intelligent Debate: The goal is to rattle him, get him off his prepared script and agenda. If he says something outrageous, stand up and shout out and sit right back down. Look for these opportunities before he even takes questions.”
There you have it. Be on the lookout for gangs of simple-minded mouthbreathing drones carrying out their marching orders. Coming soon to a town near you.
