Audio has been leaked that proves an anti-Trump group of activists met to discuss a plot to create a manufactured hostile environment for attendees of a town hall meeting. The Breaux Bridge, Louisiana meeting was held on Friday, and featured guest speaker Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy.
In the leaked audio, the activists are heard describing themselves as liberals. They can be heard in the tape discussing how to create chaos during the town hall meeting. They apparently split up into two teams:
- Inside Team – Jobs were to occupy as many town hall seats as possible
- Outside Team – Give the media coverage they planned on, before going back into the meeting
The participating liberal activists were told to wear conservative gear so they can easily blend in with the constituents. Some activists were assigned with the specific tasks of dominating the town hall’s ‘question and answer segment’ of the meeting. Their ultimate goal was to stop any Cassidy supporters (or possible supporters) from asking questions.
According to a Daily Caller report:
“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 organizer, identified by KPEL as James Proctor. His “poor people” comment drew laughs from the other activists.
KPEL identified Proctor as the leader of Indivisible Acadiana, a local branch of the national Indivisible organization, which has organized hostile Republican town halls all around the country. (RELATED: Anti-Trump Protesters To Begin Soliciting Tax-Deductible Donations)
“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. Local news outlet The Advertiser reported that members of the crowd “frequently interrupted, expressing disagreement with some of Cassidy’s positions and shouting out their own questions.”
Video from outside the event posted on YouTube shows protesters chanting, “Love not hate, that’s what makes America great.” One woman appears to be reading the chant from a script.
