    Thumbs down Obama-linked activist " training manual " for protesting Trump

    Yes folks, sadly it's true.

    "A Practical Guide For Resisting the Trump Agenda" (PDF):

    Organizing for Action (OFA) is founded by Barack Obama and is on his new post-presidency website. OFA is distributing a training manual for anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into:
    - backing off support for repealing ObamaCare
    - stop curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations
    - stop building a border wall.

    In a Facebook post, OFA calls on activists to mobilize against Republicans when “representatives are going to be in their home districts.”

    Protesters disrupted town halls, including one held in Utah by House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, who was confronted by hundreds of angry demonstrators falsely claiming to be his constituents.

    The manual, published with OFA partner “Indivisible,” advises protesters to:
    - go into halls quietly, so as not to raise alarms
    - “grab seats at the front of the room, but do not all sit together”
    - spread out in pairs, to make it seem like the whole room opposes the Republican’s positions.

    “This will help reinforce the impression of broad consensus.” The manual urges them to:
    - ask “hostile” questions
    - keep “a firm hold of the mic”
    - boo the GOP politician

    The goal is to make Republicans, even from safe districts, second-guess their support base for the Trump agenda.

    The manual advises protesters to...

    You share this as if it is somehow bad. I say it is good that the opposition learns to be strategic. Partially by borrowing genuinely good ideas from the Tea Party.

    Are you for real? This is nothing more than a repackaged list of ways that Tea Party activists took on the Obama administration.

    Seriously, yes. You cannot self reference.

    Which staffers? What Tea Party guide? External, qualified reference.

    SteveFoerster, can you please provide a link to any alleged Tea Party manuals or documents that you're referring to on how to unseat Obama?

    Well, neither does anti-Drumpf "Resistance", yet here we are discussing it. Please don't tell me that self-published "training manual" proves the existence of a real "army". Because there is at least one Jedi training college and multiple schools for witches and wizards, with a lot more curriculum than this.

    The anti-Trump "training manual" was originally posted at Obama's post-presidency website: https://barackobama.com/

    Stanislav, so you don't like Obama's curriculum? The training manual is nefarious, as well as ridiculous.

    A simple web search reveals numerous articles in such as the New York Times. And pictures of nitwits carrying RESIST signs. Expensive signs.

    Great. First Amendment in action. Just as it was in action when nitwits with neat "Tea Party" and "Don't Tread on Me" placards were on the street - do a simple Web search. There were a few handmade signs, like the famous "get the government out of my Medicare" one.

    You don't have to be such a blatant hypocrite, you know.
