An Obama-tied activist group has trained tens of thousands of agitators to protest President Trump over the last four years and tomorrow night is when they take to these streets when President Trump wins.
Organizing for Action, a group founded by former President Barack Obama and featured prominently on his post-presidency website, has distributed a training manual to anti-Trump activists. OFA’s partner “organization”, Indivisible, has organized over 500 violent protests across the country for tomorrow, November 4, when President Trump wins reelection.
BREAKING: Obama's OFA partner Indivisible has organized more than 500 protests across the country for Nov. 4 in the event Trump wins tonight

In a new Facebook post, OFA calls on activists to mobilize against Republicans.
The manual, published with OFA partner “Indivisible,” advises protesters to go into halls quietly so as not to raise alarms, and “grab seats at the front of the room but do not all sit together.” Rather, spread out in pairs to make it seem like the whole room opposes the Republican host’s positions. “This will help reinforce the impression of broad consensus.” It also urges them to ask “hostile” questions — while keeping “a firm hold on the mic” — and loudly boo the GOP politician if he isn’t “giving you real answers.”
“Express your concern [to the event’s hosts] they are giving a platform to pro-Trump authoritarianism, racism, and corruption,” it says.
Look, we’re gonna win. And also, we’re gonna prepare for Trump contesting the results, because it’d be irresponsible not to prepare. Tonight Maddow had great coverage of the https://t.co/6e5aPMrTwf coalition – the massive pro-democracy effort fueled by the grassroots. Join us:

The manual also advises protesters to flood “Trump-friendly” lawmakers’ Hill offices with angry phone calls and emails.
Obama appears to be behind the anti-Trump protests. He praised demonstrations against Trump’s travel ban. And after Trump’s upset victory, he personally rallied OFA troops to “protect” his legacy in a conference call. “Now is the time for some organizing,” he said. “So don’t mope” over the election results.
He promised OFA activists he would soon join them in the fray.
But it doesn’t stop there….major U.S. cities have been boarded up over the past few days leading up to election night in preparation for violent, far-left riots. Corporate business and family-owned shops in New York City, Chicago, Detroit, and Washington D.C. have boarded up their storefronts.
I’ve never seen so many people say how scared they are about post-election violence. I’ve never seen cities boarded up on Election Day in preparation for violence. This is what Trump has done to our country. We must defeat him, overwhelmingly.
