Wondering why all of a sudden we see massive objections happening at town hall meetings where Republican Senators and Congresspeople that represent the majority of voters.

Seems most of the objections and questioning are coming from an organized effort that links back to Democrats.

Many of whom were connected to Hillary Clinton and other Democrats.

Looks like another losing agenda.

Clintonite Exposed Behind Organizing of Town Hall Protesters

Over the past week, everywhere you turn there are articles, news reports, and social media stories about how Republican congressmen are being hammered with questions during hostile town hall meetings back in their home districts.

Earlier this week, Erick wrote a wonderful piece on how Republicans can and should ignore all this.

I second all the points Erick made. I commend any representative that stands in front of their constituents, especially those who are rancorous, takes questions, is cordial, respectful, and makes his or her case. This is exactly why the first amendment is so wonderful. We can agree to disagree. We can and should have vigorous debate.

Even my liberal friends in the real world all know that these town hall protests are contrived.

Who the hell are these people? How do they have all this free time?

They may be part of the OFA group www.abovetopsecret.com... That is what came to my mind .

Found the link

On CNN, reporter Poppy Harlow asked Dahman “Is your movement a paid movement? Do you know protesters being paid? Are you guys paying those folks to go?” Dahman answered, “We are not paying any protesters. I've not heard of any protesters being paid. If that's the case, I don't know why 1,000 people were in Oregon for a Ron Wyden town hall.” Wyden is on a swing through the state and plans on hitting at least eleven town hall meetings. Dahman went on to say, “This is something that's happening across the country, red states, blue states. There's civic engagement like we've never seen. It's all organic and happening at the grassroots level.” The Town Hall Project website includes links to organizations that provide training and coordination, such as Indivisible. MoveOn.org, an activist group with which the Town Hall Project is affiliated, has launched ResistanceRecess.com --

a website that calls on activists to show up at town hall meetings. Obama's fingerprints Founded by Barack Obama, Organizing for America has developed a manual to train tens of thousands of activists and agitators to protest against President Trump’s policies and to disrupt town hall meetings. Organizing for Action is featured prominently on Obama's new post-presidency website. The manual trains leftists to challenge and harangue Republicans on issues ranging from immigration, Muslims, and Obamacare. OFA is calling on adherents to mobilize this week while Republicans are "going to be in their home districts.” Protesters have disrupted town hall meetings featuring Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR). In Houston, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) decided not to appear at a town hall meeting that had been disrupted by protesters. Labor union involvement On the board of the Town Hall Project parent organization --
The Action Network -- are: Jeffrey Dugas, who worked for Sen. Elizabeth Warren and at the Center for American Progress that was founded by Clinton campaign director John Podesta; Mark Fleischman, a former VP of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU); Rich Clayton, another former SEIU employee; and Brian Young, who campaigned for Howard Dean and John Kerry. It shares a Washington DC address with United We Dream, which calls itself the "largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation." Billionaire George Soros has funded United We Dream, which began protests on college campuses against Trump soon after the November 2016 election. Also at the same address is Change to Win, a labor group that is chaired by Teamster president James P. Hoffa.

Clintonite; or in other words, an American citizen exercising their first amendment right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. I don't really care who is speaking out nor do I care what their agenda; they have a right to be heard.

During the Bush years, amid the rise of the Ron Paul Tea Party, there were legitimate protests by the Right during Republican townhalls.

But I would agree with others.

While I think there may be some real anger, many of these recent protests seem less authentic and staged.

Yes because it's impossible that there are actually conservatives who are upset with what's going on.

Although I do believe there are probably some paid protesters or what have you, I'm pretty sure that some of those people, if not most, have legitimate concerns and the GOP are just spinning this so they don't have to actually deal with their constituents.

There absolutely are conservatives that are upset.

The difference is, they don't protest.

And most of them have jobs.

So no convervative has EVER shown up at a town hall to speak with their senator and ask them questions? Or the ones that do are always 100% happy and don't ask questions, just go there and stare at them?

Come now.


And most of them have jobs.


I fail to see what that has to do with anything, considering the town halls usually take place in the mid to late afternoon or evening when most people are done work anyway...

So, based on your logic, no conservative ever complains to their elected officials, even when upset, because they work?

lol.

IF these are people who voted for Trump, where were the protests when he ran with this as part of his platform?

Here's the thing about the electorate, they are mostly stupid. We've known this for a while. People vote against their own interests all the time. They only get upset when the cookie crumbles and they actually see what is happening.

ETA: if you want proof of that, just ask Obama supporters who were supporting Bernie in the last election, they mostly were pretty upset with how Obama handled tons of different things and how he failed miserably in a lot of ways. The information was in front of them prior to them voting, they chose to ignore it because he spoke the language they spoke.

And there were plenty of Never Trumper Conservatives during the election, both primary and general. They weren't all liberals.
