A ‘Perdue Didn’t Invite Us to Lunch’ protest takes aim at senator

A group of demonstrators demanding U.S. Sen. David Perdue hold a traditional town hall meeting has scheduled a protest Tuesday outside a Brookhaven office park where he is set to deliver a speech.

The #ResistTrumpTuesdays group has rallied every Tuesday for 12 weeks outside Perdue’s downtown Atlanta office calling on him to hold an in-person town hall meeting.

This week, though, they are moving their demonstration to a spot across the street from Perdue’s appearance and bringing lawn chairs, signs and food. They’re calling it a “Perdue Didn’t Invite Us to Lunch” moment.

The demonstration is part of a wave of national protests that have rocked GOP events since Trump’s inauguration, including public appearances held by Republican congressmen even in deeply conservative bastions.

In February, protesters turned a low-profile event with junior congressional staffers into a stand against Donald Trump’s policies. And groups have more recently launched “Have You Seen Him” billboards plastered with Perdue’s face in Atlanta, Savannah and near Perdue’s home in Sea Island.

Perdue’s office said he has no town hall meeting on the books during the two-week recess but said it has a raft of other events planned, including a visit to the site of the I-85 bridge collapse and meetings with law enforcement officials and medical leaders.

Here’s a look at the crowd:

He does not represent the citizens of GA, he only promotes himself. GA you made a big mistake electing this man. Did I vote for him, NO, will I vote for him in the next election NO, he is useless for the citizens. He almost bankrupt General Dollar. No he does not meet with his constituents.

Hey, all you haters, what in hell did limber dork Hussein do or any of you? Not a damned thing! So stop bitching, and you just might see this country become a nice place to live once again.

Ms. Chupp, Perdue wouldn't meet or respond to constituents long before 45 entered the Oval Office. This man is not a friend to Georgia. He is only for his own wallet, like the governor of Georgia.

There used to be honorable men representing Georgia and Georgians. You know trump is vile, disgusting and reprehensible. You have the audacity to do "us vs them" ads? I thought we were all in this together!! When republicans were garnering support against Obama Care there were Town halls everywhere. You're a coward perdue. Face us and do it quickly.

I wouldn't meet with people who don't want a mature rational debate either. All they want is a hate filled rant against Trump and his presidency.

WRONG! *Said by Alec Baldwin as ElCheeto* What people want are our ELECTED officials to answer for selling us out to special interests, their own interests, and the Republican party!!!

Lucretia von Pea you again are showing your complete and total ignorance. Obama and Clinton, along with the Bush's are the one's totally responsible for selling we the people out because of their globalist views.:)

William Tullis these people are merely parroting the talking point chants given to them by the Democrat operatives who are tasked with stirring up the uninformed to irrational hatred. Rather than really investigating for the truth, they only want to hurl insults and obscenities. They certainly do not really have any interest in what Perdue wants to accomplish. Why? Because he's on the "wrong" side and they have been instructed to disrupt.

Don't do it! This is nothing more than a demand by the violent left to yell and holler and put on a BIG SHOW for the cameras, and the fake news channels to give them fodder for their headlines. Your constituents who support you are not asking for any meetings.

Perdue, you are a disgrace to even republicans. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Like all republicans you stroll into to church like one of piuty I'd love to find out what church and when you'll be there

All are still constituents rather they voted for him or not I can work for myself or I can work for an organization that nobody likes that's beside the point if we elect him he owes it to the constituents my camera not face-to-face time just running and hiding doesn't do anything for anyone other than himself or his base because they also do not want him to face any critical questioning of his actions

Funny Patrick Morrell you still cannot prove Atlanta had paid protestors yesterday. Im not paid. And I think Perdue is awful. So again. Stop deflecting and give that proof that ATLANTA HAD PAID PROTESTORS YESTERDAY. You cant.

Patrick Morrell
Patrick Morrell

It's been proven. I saw your comment on another thread discounting the Soros connection and the proof. So doubt I'd be able to dent your delusion or level of idiocy, you moronic fool. You want every one to believe, that 5 months removed from the election, that his supporters who stood by him for nearly 2 years, has SUDDENLY given up on him. Riiiiiiiiight. And Benghazi was a video's fault. Amiright? Can't fix stupid.

Awwwww snowflake. Your last name In relation to the size of your brain? I'm guessing so. So let me educate the imbecilic. PROJECT VERITAS. I typed slow so you could keep up. http://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/oct/18/undercover-video-shows-democrats-saying-they-hire-/ Hell, I'll even included a link because I'm sure you have a hard time stringing together a coherent thought that Google could follow. That's right Pea brain, they have VIDEO and a Democrat got FIRED over the revelation. CYA. Good grief you people are so damn stupid. Oh, and BTW, he's YOUR PRESIDENT. Going to be a looooong 8 years for you.

Patrick Morrell your original post on this thread stated the protestor at Perdues luncheon were paid. I asked you then to prove it. Obviously you cannot. Instead you present garbage not only debunked by NPR but The Blaze as well. Anyone with an ounce of smarts knows that O Keefe is a known hack. In the court of law one muat present unaltered video footage if you want the Judge to allow. O Keefe never can do so be cause he heavily edits his work. Nice try on the deflection but not going to work on me Patrick... So again prove the atlanta protestors were paid. Good evening. And try to refrain from the churlish comments. It doesnt help your position in this argument.

Forget it Keo. It's obvious he doesn't deal in reality. Just Alternative Facts and far Alt-Right talking points. People like him simply cannot fathom other Americans standing up against their Mango Mussolini. ESPECIALLY if they're not being paid. I just hope he doesn't have contact with children. Gawd knows we don't need his disease spread to the kiddies!

Funny that the Washington Times reported on the fact that the Democrat Party fired two top Democratic strategists that worked on the Clinton campaign, after the undercover videos showed them discussing voter fraud and their roles in planting paid agitators at Trump campaign events. Yeah. TOTALLY DEBUNKED! LOLOL. You and Pea brain make quite the pair. A couple of clueless idiots. Talk about alternate realities.

Keo Blaise it doesn't take much to draw a line to the fact that they paid protesters before he was elected, and they are paying them now.

David Perdue doesn't give a darn about the people of Georgia, only about enriching himself and his family at the expense of the poor and middle class.

He's not meeeting with constituents unless: 1. they are rich lobbyists asking for favors in return for campaign contributions 2. it's a photo op 3. it will curry favor with his buddy Trump. Meeting with constituents would publicly show 1. that he is unable to cope with those who disagree with him 2. that he is widely despised by his constituents 3. that he cannot think for himself.

Keo Blaise this is where your party sold out the American people. The asassanation of a US Ambassador and his three associates is treason under the constitution. The entire Obama administration was complicant in cover it up which makes them as guilty as Hillary. Since the House in congress refused to impeach the administration, every single representative with the exception of one is also guilty of treason. They are also guilty of obstruction of justice and the fact that they refuse to interview the witnesses who were available and willing to go safe these people and they told them to stand down. The entire Obama admistration is guilty of treason.

Can't wait until this guy is out of office and we vote in someone who actually cares about constituents, taxpayers and Georgia residents rather than the Billionaire Trump Club ... Let's send Perdue on a very very very long golf trip in 2020 never to be heard from again - along with his blond bloated orange hero ...
