Left Activists Intrude on Meeting of Shelby County Democrats

Note: This article is from December 15, 2017. I'm posting the thread since I did not see it posted elsewhere within the group.

The Shelby County Democratic Party, reconstituted early this year after being decertified by the state party in 2016, endured its first direct attack from a hostile source Thursday night.

Two members of a group styling itself “DNC Fraud Alert” interrupted a meeting of the SCDP’s executive committee at the Cordova Community Center, unfurling a banner denouncing the Democratic National Committee and shouting statements like “The DNC has shown us time and time again that they will lie, cheat, gaslight, and marginalize progressives. It’s time to claim our rightful revolution rather than continue the ping-pong match of corporate overlords! “

They continued shouting through cries from committee members, “You’re out of order.” After being confronted directly by SCDP chair Corey Strong, whose opening remarks they had brought to a halt, and by party sergeant-at-arms Thurston Smith, they finally subsided.

The women were offered speaking time at the end of the meeting but, after resuming their seats at the back of the room, would leave before the meeting concluded. Meanwhile, they had live-streamed a video of their exploit, under the head “Live behind enemy lines lol,” on the Facebook page of one Sarah Freels.
