Throwback Thursday: “Local” MDA Activist’s Ambush Thwarted by IFC Members

Here’s a fun throwback from August. That’s when Mom’s Demand Action’s so-called “local” supporters attempted to get the drop on then candidate Joni Ernst in the middle of her Iowa State Fair stump speech. Prior to the event they sent out robo-calls searching for mom’s to come to the state fair and call out Joni.

They were so desperate to get anyone to come out that they offered to reimburse these mom’s parking costs, admission fees, even the money spent on food they ate while at the state fair. You know it’s bad when you have to bribe people to come to your events.

But here’s the real kicker: the calls were made from California, and if you planned on going you had to RSVP with the organizers based in California.

Take a listen:



Here’s what makes this story great: IFC members, with little more than 24 hours notice showed up in great numbers the day of Joni’s speech. The angry moms organized by out of state rabble rousers numbered somewhere in the half-dozen range. The speech went off without a hitch, and those moms who did show up didn’t make a peep.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Good things happen because IFC members can always be relied upon to come together and make a stand for what’s right.

What’s even better? You recognize the value of your freedoms and are willing stand up for them without having to be bribed!
