Indivisible Greenwich sent an email yesterday about the challenged RTM vote on “Zuckbucks”… a controversial grant worth $500k that would effectively double the Town’s elections budget.
The group claimed, "MAGA Republicans are working hard to overturn a vote they lost in the RTM” and then started screaming “election deniers” in a lot of red text.
The email further alleged that, “with no legal authority to ignore and reject the final vote of the RTM, Camillo took it upon himself to announce that he won't accept the grant unless the losers of the vote are given a do-over in the hopes of a different outcome.”
This seems like a bit of a stretch, especially since what Camillo actually said was, "I will not sign the grant agreement until this has been fully dealt with by the members of the RTM.” Currently, there is a challenge to the RTM Moderator’s decision, and presumably the process for handling challenges needs to play out. If anything, it sounded as if Camillo would simply defer to the RTM’s vote once the challenge is resolved, instead of taking an opportunity to make a strong statement against the injection of third-party money into Greenwich elections.
Accordingly, Indivisible is asking anyone — even nonresidents — to sign an online petition in support of Zuckbucks to help secure “free and fair” elections in Greenwich, even though the Honest Elections Project has shown how this very grant program does in fact have strings attached that benefit the Left.
For those of you unfamiliar with Indivisible Greenwich, it’s the group that, in the wake of George Floyd, organized the
rally against “systemic racism” at Greenwich Town Hall in June 2020. This was the rally where US House Rep Jim Himes said he was "deeply conscious of his white male privilege.” Coincidentally, three months later, Superintendent Jones committed to Greenwich becoming an "anti-racist” school district and the Town embarked on a plan to roll out “inherent bias training” to Town employees.
Don’t forget that rally was also allowed to take place at the same time Greenwich High School graduation was cancelled, and reduced to a parking lot drive-through affair thanks to “covid” and unscientific social distancing rules.
The Greenwich chapter is part of the national Indivisible organization whose main goal is to “fight MAGA extremism!”
The group claims we are “facing the interlocking catastrophes of a rigged democracy, global pandemic, unimaginable and growing wealth inequality, racial injustice, and the escalating impacts of the climate crisis.” It has also been actively signing up local groups around the country to help defeat Trump and so-called MAGA extremism while at the same time promoting progressive policies. In fact, part of its stated mission is "to resist the GOPs agenda, elect local champions, and fight for progressive policies."
Indivisible offers a Voter Registration Guide and online tool called TurboVote to assist in absentee ballot and voter registration campaigns.
According to Influence Watch, Indivisible was established by left-wing activists Ezra Levin and Leah Greenberg in December 2016. The group’s first project was a 26-page political organizing manual entitled, “A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda.”
Indivisible’s most prominent allies include the Democratic Socialists of America, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), MoveOn.org, Planned Parenthood, the Working Families Party and Tides Foundation (a funding partner and pillar of the Left), among others.
Additionally, at least three of the group’s five principals (including Levin and Greenberg) have ties to organizations funded by George Soros.
And they are calling any Greenwich resident who doesn't want elections influenced by outside money a “MAGA extremist”? Really?
But aren't the real extremists the ones aligned with the Socialists and Communists who are actively working to destroy our country?
