Tea Party-Style Astroturf Protests From Union Goons & Far Left Groups
Republicans are expected to face
tea party-style astroturf protests from union goons & far left groups this Congressional break.
The astroturf mobs already held a protest outside of a Boehner fundraiser in Wayzata, Minnesota this week.
Notice all of the union shirts at the rally – It makes you wonder how many of these far left protesters were on the clock, huh?
Look for the democrat-media complex to call these astroturfed mobs a “grassroots” uprising against GOP policies… Just like they did earlier this year.
The Hill reported on the planned protests:
House Republicans are facing angry protests at home this month as liberal activists and labor organizers try to replicate the Tea-Party backlash that bit Democrats in August of 2009.
Liberal groups have been planning these protests for months. One organizer told The Hill in February that the campaign would “build to a crescendo” in August.
Another organizer said participants held 1,500 house meetings “a couple of months ago” to launch the movement, claiming “that’s twice as many as the Tea Party had.”
Hundreds of people showed up at the Wayzata Golf Club in Wayzata, Minnesota, Friday to protest a fundraiser for Reps. Chip Cravaack (R-Minn.) and Erik Paulsen (R-Minn.), which was attended by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).
Holding signs that blared “Jobs, not cuts!” and “People before profits”, the protesters, some wearing labor tee shirts, sought to put a hot spotlight on the exclusive event, which charged donors up to $10,000 to play a round of golf with the lawmakers.
Dozens of constituents held a rally in Duluth earlier this month to protest Cravaak’s refusal to hold a town-hall meeting in that part of his district, which is a Democratic stronghold.
On Thursday, Rep. Paul Ryan (R) the chairman of the House Budget Committee, called police to break up a sit-down protest at his district office in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
