Indivisible is the group responsible for the protests at town halls across the country.  This isn’t some great discovery we made.  After all, Indivisible revealed its tactics to disrupt town halls when it published its Indivisible Guide.  They made it simple to prove.

Indivisible’s video and guide instructs its followers to organize at least these two actions; Stage fake town halls and disrupt real town halls.  Here’s the proof:

  1. Stage or fake a town hall to ridicule members of congress

    • Proof instructions were given by Indivisible: Indivisible instructed followers to stage town halls on its video titled Town Hall Resistance Guide:  In minute 1:12 of this video found on their Facebook page here and YouTube Channel here, they teach their followers how to stage their own town hall and to ridicule their member of congress as presented by Robert Reich.  In it Reich says “If they (member of congress) refuse to hold a town hall, hold your own (as in “fake town hall”) and invite them.”  This is a trap since members of congress hold their own town halls.  Reich continues, If your representative doesn’t attend, bring… an empty chair… let the local media know that your member of congress didn’t have the courage to show up…”  Additionally, Indivisible’s fake town halls were held weeks in advance of official town halls.  It is clear this was done in order to manipulate the media and public into thinking their member of congress was refusing to meet with constituents.
    • Proof instructions were followed:  One example is an Indivisible chapter in Oklahoma staged their own fake town hall weeks prior to official members of congress town hall meetings.  Many of these were faked around the country.  At this staged event they ridiculed Senators Inhofe and Lankford for not attending (It wasn’t the senators’ town halls and they were not in town anyway.)  The Indivisible leader in minute 18:30 of this video said, “we deserved tonight to have these two missing senators up here,” pointing to the two empty chairs and name placards that Indivisible deceptively placed to ridicule the two.
  2. Disrupt official or real town halls held by members of Congress.

    • Proof instructions were given by Indivisible:  Indivisible told its followers on page 18 of its Guide to disrupt town halls with, booing…” and instructed them not to give up the microphone.  Followers were told that after asking a hostile question they should forcefully refuse to give up the microphone in this way, Don’t give up the mic until you’re satisfied with the answer.  If you’ve asked a hostile question, a staffer will often try to limit your ability to follow up by taking the microphone back immediately after you finish speaking. They can’t do that if you keep a firm hold on the mic. No staffer in their right mind wants to look like they’re physically intimidating a constituent, so they will back off.”
    • Proof instructions were followed:  In this example at minute 6:45 of this audio recording a follower of Indivisible from Louisiana says, “Well the Indivisible Guide does say, you start to lose the meeting, that’s when you boo…”  This example also shows raucous booing in this video from start to finish at Senator Bill Cassidy’s town hall in Louisiana.  In the video there are many followers of Indivisible shouting hostile questions and refusing to give up the floor even if they don’t have the mic because they don’t like the answers.

That’s the proof and it’s indisputable.  Many senators and members of congress found out what Indivisible was up to before the town halls and alerted the media.  They were not taken serious.  Now that the fake and real town halls are over the proof shows that Indivisible staged it all with instructions that were followed very dutifully.

What’s next for Indivisible?  They tell us there will be protests at parades, groundbreaking ceremonies, etc.  These are the kind of protests that can turn into riots.  The instructions for these protests on page 20 are, “Be prepared to interrupt,” “attract attention to yourself,” and “Coordinate with each other to chant.”

What can you do about Indivisible?  Turn your phones on them.  Photograph and video tape them and share it on social media and send to your local TV and radio stations.  There is more to come.
