Fake Protesters Disrupt Townhall Meeting – Nothing is Ever What it Seems
On Friday a group of protesters disrupted a Townhall meeting for Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. Only all is not what it seemed, as KPEL reported that audio was leaked from a meeting with the protesters prior to the Townhall that gave instructions on how to make it look like a hostile group of Conservatives. And yes they were attempting to manufacture anti-Trump sentiments.
And it wasn’t the first time- they also disrupted the Senator’s Townhall in Metairie, Louisiana.
The Senator was scheduled to have a total of 5 Townhall meetings. The protesters- ok infiltrators – had been coached on how to disrupt, and dominate the meeting. They were NOT ordinary “locals” as some media called them.
The audio is faint, but you can hear James Proctor, with the group “Indivisible Guide,” tell them to all get there early so the the others can’t get in. He reminded them that if they confronted the police they wouldn’t come out good in that situation, so to keep it disruptive without getting arrested. Some were concerned that the police hadn’t been notified they were coming.
“If you all get there early, there won’t be room for any of them.” [laughter]
“Look like Conservatives, dress like Conservatives, wear a suit and a tie, dress like housewives…”
Wait…was that a sexist remark? Dress like housewives?
The Daily Caller reported,
The activists split up into an “inside team” — tasked with occupying “as many seats as we can” and an “outside team,” whose job was to “give [the media] the coverage they want” before joining the others inside. Activists were instructed to dress like conservatives and leave at home “any signifier that you’re a liberal” in order to blend in with constituents.
The leftist activists strategized how best to “dominate” the question-and-answer section of the town hall and keep anyone “sympathetic” to Cassidy from asking a question.
Friday, Feb 24
At the Breaux Bridge Townhall meeting, the protesters disrupted the pledge of allegiance and the opening prayer. They shouted “Do your job” at every turn. Most media truly believed they were locals who didn’t like Trump- and that was the appearance they were trying to purvey. They yelled “Pray on your own time” and “Separation of church and state” (among other things) during the opening prayer.
“Thanks for doing that. Wow, they booed the name of Jesus.” Senator Cassidy as he thanked Michael Sprague, the pastor who gave the opening prayer.

“I assume they’re Americans who care about our country, who feel differently about Trump than most folks in Louisiana do. But they’re coming out with their constitutionally protected right to assemble and speak. And isn’t that a good thing?” Senator Cassidy
Not necessarily, Senator. All is not what it seemed.
