Don Briggs of the Democratic Alliance of Northwest Indiana explains how it’s done. Get your folks there early; have people sign in; start the meeting by pointing out that there are organized efforts at disruption; and have the cops present. By saying “There are people here to disrupt the meeting” you put the disrupters in a tough spot; every time they act out, they confirm your accusation.
Oh, yes: and have a Congressman smart enough to say “Medicare” the first time someone says “government-run health insurance.”
If the Teabaggers get enough progressives riled up to come out to the town halls, they will have done us a favor.
