Activist’s Facebook Account Disabled After Confronting Nina Turner
Political activist Sarah Freel’s Facebook account was disabled after confronting Nina Turner at the Take Back Tennessee Rally regarding Our Revolution and a “Concept Paper” in an email to John Podesta.
“First of all, you are being disrespectful” said Turner to Freels.
“Do you know what this is? This is a concept paper from the Podesta emails that proves Our Revolution was created by Hillary Clinton.”
“That’s not true” replied Turner.
Needless to say, Freels didn’t get any answers, but what she did get was a lockdown on her Facebook account. Access to her profile has been disabled. Why would they possibly want to keep this issue off the record?
Here is an excerpt from the attachment to the email:
OBJECTIVE: Mobilize young voter participation for the 2016 election in support of Hillary Clinton
STRATEGY: Use young elected officials and entertainers to build a “grassroots” movement of under 40 voters as a vehicle to migrate support for Bernie into activism for Hillary.
OPERATIONAL GOALS: Identify young elected officials (YEOs)across the country to become the face of a new organization that is focused on a progressive future. These young elected officials would promote both the organization, the ideas embraced by it and the need for civic engagement with an immediate focus on involvement in the 2016 election. They would be seen as the faces of a new progressivist movement that combines noble goals with political realities resulting in real progress.
The organization would be built around a group of ideas or concepts as opposed to parties or individuals. The ideas should always reinforce the message that the under 40 generation needs to engage politically to shape their own future. Building the New Economy, Creating an Empowerment Society, Transitioning to a Sustainable World, Tearing Down Barriers are all phrases which might be included in the messaging. Support for the Hillary would be included in the messaging but initially as tangential to it, i.e. “if you support these things then there really isn’t another choice but her”. Over time the messaging would transition more into the actionable item of involvement in the campaign and support for its efforts.
The organization should be built around a Ready for Hillary type model: grassroots driven, limited engagement of the principal, both an organizational and small dollar fundraising component, centered on-line and in venues frequented by under 40’s — college campuses, with a big emphasis on community colleges, nightclubs, athletic events, etc.
The group should be branded separately from the campaign so people who engage with it feel like they created and own it as opposed to feeling swallowed by an organization that defeated them. A distinct name, artwork, website, spokespeople etc would be desired.
