From a memo re. "best practices" for infiltrating and disrupting town hall meetings on health care reform and energy policy:
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 Reps presentation, Watch for an opportunity to yell out and challenge the Reps 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."
Read more about the origin of these tactics at Think Progress...
Yep, pass the popcorn!
probably not too hard to “rattle ‘em” since it is impossible to defend the indefensible. Liberals cannot debate when the playing field is level. They loose.
0bama told us to “get in their faces!”
They are just setting the stage for Dems to claim that the meetings are being hijacked by extremists and stooges of the insurance companies while real Americans want Obamacare. Liberal CYA.
Ask the simple question:
HAVE YOU READ THE BILL?
Think Progress...progress to the USSR?
Progress to more dead babies?
Progress to two men marrying?
Progress to letting someone advance because of their skin pigmentation vs. achievement?
Progress in letting the government tell me when to die and how many treatments I can have.
Progress in allowing millions of illegal aliens to overrun our schools, jails and hospitals?
Progress in kow-towing to foreign leaders and apologizing for our nation?
Progress in allowing the corrupt, useless UN to have sovreign power over our nation?
Progress for making a fantasy of “climate change” triple our energy costs and make us poorer while China and India burn their plants 24/7?
Progress for allowing every business to be overrun by labor unions hungry for dues and power?
Progress for allowing the State to think for me? I think not.
Progress is getting every Liberal out of office, forever.
Sounds like they’re afraid their tactics will be used against them.
They are going to ask questions- EVIL!
The left really hates to see their own tactics used against them.
I honestly know of NOONE either dem or repub that wants the crap hole of a kill your elderly parents, non health care bill.
No, more like “marxist administration memos outline strategy for disrupting political process....in the works as we speak.”
Plus, the Marxist don’t want any input from citizens at all, or the other Party
so they try to label them as paid insurance co. protesters, while the insurance companies send money to the Marxist/Pelousie.
We need to start carrying big clear plastic bags of feathers to the meetings, they’ll get the point!
I call horse crap on this one.
Everyone knows conservatives aren’t organized! I’m not even sure we could get a decent softball game off the ground.
Don`t forget the “Delphi Technique” as a way to steer a public meeting.
I left them a message - look for Ward Dorrity’s reply. That’s me.
LOL. So true, and so sad. Well — the only difference this time is that a bunch of us are now unemployed — meaning we can spend time politicking!
Ha! By destroying the economy, Obama has unleashed forces he cannot understand.
so, they admit there’s a Socialist Agenda in Washington!
Come prepared, co-ordinate with others if possible and speak you mind without fear. You will be noted by some of those who matter. Liberal groups already have a well worn playbook for these, and big armies of PAID minions, who employ radical “community activist” techniques that are so rude, disruptive, unethical and nasty, that they put these suggestions to shame.
Usually, the Dem legislative staffers have already choreographed the entire event with some of these groups in advance, and it is really a publicly paid political rally for fringe supporters, radical donor groups and recruiting for the same.
To see mild stuff like this article plastered on a lib site as some kind of scandal is well beyond irony.
