‘Indivisible’ Gains Ground

Republicans Struggle to Ignore Growing Movement

“This week, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) became the latest Republican to see video of angry protesters shouting him down at an event in his hometown go viral,” according to The Hill.

“Some, like Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.), are blaming the protests on a group called ‘Indivisible,’ which was started in December by a handful of former Democratic staffers on Capitol Hill.”

“Liberals have been emboldened by the protests, believing their own version of the Tea Party movement has sprung up organically in response to President Trump and GOP majorities in Congress.”

Sarah Dohl, one of the founders of ‘Indivisible‘, said “We’re looking to adopt the Tea Party’s tactics of local activism and defensive politics….We’re hearing from a lot of people on the ground that this is their first time ever getting politically involved….Before this movement sprung up, a lot of them had never even called their congressman.”
