They went too far. The demonstrations at Republican town hall meetings were supposed to appear spontaneous, but they gave the game away with all the shouting and disruptions. Conservatives don't act that way, and while the MSM portrayed it as genuine voter dissatisfaction, it was too obviously orchestrated.
Even the hand written signs looked manufactured. Notice how similar the word "DISAGREE" appears on each of the signs in this photo. (Found here.) Nice try.
Paul Sperry explored this in Obama-linked activists have a ‘training manual’ for protesting Trump. To wit:
An Obama-tied activist group training tens of thousands of agitators to protest President Trump’s policies plans to hit Republican lawmakers supporting those policies even harder this week, when they return home for the congressional recess and hold town hall meetings and other functions.
Organizing for Action, a group founded by former President Barack Obama and featured prominently on his new post-presidency website, is distributing a training manual to anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into backing off support for repealing ObamaCare, curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations and building a border wall.
Will it work? Trump voters probably won't be swayed. But that's no guarantee they will show up to vote in 2018.
