Members of Congress are back in their districts this week to meet with constituents, and at least some of them will also be contending with organized protests over the attempt to repeal ObamaCare.
Two weeks ago, Utah Republican Jason Chaffetz held a town hall in his district and heard chants of "Do your job!" from the hostile crowd.
This is the third in a series of stories from OneNewsNow dealing with an organized opposition to the Trump administration
U.S. Rep. Jim Banks (R-Indiana) is heading home to meet with the people that put him into office…and likely a few who didn't. He's seen it before and tells OneNewsNow it's an organized effort made to appear like grassroots opposition.
"We later learned, as many others have as well, that this is a concerted effort by leftist groups who are funding efforts to push protesters to show up and disrupt public events," the congressman advises.
He says he has personally viewed the websites used by Democrats and leftist groups to organize their protests and even pay protesters to show up.
Political commentator Paul Sperry told Fox Business (see video below) that the left is learning from its past.
"These aren't like the rabble from Occupy Wall Street or even Black Lives Matter. These are professionally trained agitators," he said. "They're schooled in Alinsky's Rules for Radicals tactics in a program that lasts six weeks."
Sperry also claimed approximately 32,000 people have gone through the Alinsky-aligned course, and thousands more are expected for more training in March.
He said it's the work of a former community organizer who's getting back in the business that propelled him to a U.S. Senate seat then the White House.
"Obama's the guy who's behind all this. He's the mastermind," Sperry claimed.
