Report: Leftists Plan to Flood Town Hall Meetings With Fake Support for Obama’s Iran Deal
Obama’s Iran nuclear deal is very unpopular with the American people. Even many Democrats in congress don’t support it. In an effort to sway public public opinion and make it look more popular than it is, leftists are quietly launching an Astroturf campaign to attend town hall meetings.
Joel B. Pollak of Breitbart reported:
Several left-wing groups have united in an “Astroturf” campaign to create a false impression of public support for the Iran deal at town hall meetings across the nation.
The effort, called “60 Days to Stop a War,” is being coordinated by MoveOn.org, an anti-war group, the National Iranian American Council, a pro-Iran lobby group; Daily Kos, a left-wing blog site; and other left-wing groups.
As in the Obamacare effort in 2009, the apparent goal of “60 Days” is to create a media sensation that can drown out the American public’s overwhelming opposition.
A statement on the “60 Days” website declares:
Republicans are trying to start a war with Iran by rejecting the historic deal announced by the U.S., Iran and five other world powers that will prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Republicans can’t start their war without votes from Democrats…
Pollak goes on to list at least 20 members of congress who have scheduled town hall meetings which are being targeted by progressives for this campaign of disinformation.
