Leaked audio has emerged of professional anti-Trump activists planning to disrupt Republican senator Bill Cassidy’s Breaux Bridge town hall meeting in Louisiana.
They can also be heard making fun of the “the poor people of Breaux Bridge” who might get stuck seated behind them. The Acadiana Advocate reports that “many attendees were turned away” from the town hall gathering, citing “capacity restrictions.”
“Game plan number one is to fill as many seats as we can, right? If it’s all of us in there and the poor people of Breaux Bridge are sitting behind us, well then, tough luck for them,” said one of the leftist organizers, identified as James Proctor. He added, “If we can arrange it so he doesn’t hear one sympathetic question — great. That only magnifies our impact.”
Reportedly, Proctor is the leader of Indivisible Acadiana, a local branch of the nationwide Indivisible organization, which is responsible for organizing several hostile Republican town hall meetings across the U.S.
“The Indivisible Guide does say that when you start to lose the meeting, that’s when you boo and hiss,” one unidentified activist can be heard saying. “Right, I was going to say that,” another activist replied. The Advertiser reported that members of the crowd “frequently interrupted, expressing disagreement with some of Cassidy’s positions and shouting out their own questions.”
“The outside team will join the inside team in the hall after media coverage,” Proctor states at one point. “So, what we’ll do is we’ll try to dominate enough, because–remember, the camera people especially are looking for some ‘b-roll’ and some quotes.”
“They’ve got three or four things to cover that day, this is just one of them,” Proctor said of media covering the town hall. “So, we make sure we give them the coverage they want, and then everyone breaks and goes inside.”
In the audio, activists can be heard referencing the “Indivisible Guide” and working with the Organizing for Action group to coordinate town hall protests and train liberal activists. Organizing for Action is an activist group affiliated with former President Obama, according to NBC News.
Several congressional Republicans and Sec. of State Rex Tillerson were also targeted by similar leftist group protest efforts and hostile town halls in recent weeks.
In the video below, town hall disruptors at Sen. Cassidy’s town hall booed the name of Jesus and became outraged when the meeting opened with a prayer.
