We told you there was a national movement to target Republicans in town hall meetings, not a grassroots movement as national Democratic activists claim.
In Denver this week, the activists targeted Republican Sen. Cory Gardner — denouncing him as inaccessible and beaming a picture of him fashioned into a “Missing” poster to a wall of the Denver Art Museum while protesting Trump’s plans to boost energy production on public lands.
Gardner “is supposed to represent us, but where is he?” said Emma Spett, a 22-year-old environmental activist from Denver who says she’s “terrified” of environmental policy changes backed by Trump.
The same not-a-national-tactic is also coincidently being used in North Carolina:
Claiming that North Carolina’s Republican U.S. senators are dodging their constituents, a group of activists took out a quarter-page “lost and found” ad in The News & Observer on Sunday.
We told you that Democrats would get a lot of publicity for protesting against Republicans that did not have a public town hall meeting scheduled for this week only, and they are.
We told you there would be no similar out cry against Democrats, and there is not, and the media is eating it up.
Gardner has planned to hold tele-town hall meetings, just like U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet and U.S. Rep. Jared Polis, but the media only cares about what Republicans never planned to do, but Democrats are demanding so they can throw theatrical protests to get even more media attention.
And, we dare not call these tactics successful attempts to create fake news, for fear of being sued.
