Metairie Indivisible This Week – Tues, June 2, 2020

22 Weeks Until the November Elections



We usually don’t send out Call of the Day on Tuesday, but Trump’s actions Monday night must be addressed. 

From The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank: “Federal authorities attacked peaceful protesters outside the White House with tear gas, flash-bangs and rubber bullets, as Trump, with Orwellian gall, stood in the Rose Garden proclaiming himself “an ally of all peaceful protesters.” Trump threatened to mobilize federal troops against U.S. citizens on U.S. soil without permission from governors — an act associated with totalitarian countries — then walked across Lafayette Square to St. John’s Church where he held aloft a Bible. Peaceful protesters had been gassed and forcibly dispersed so Trump could have a photo op.” 

Call our members of Congress and tell them: 

  • You are disgusted that Trump had peaceful protesters attacked with tear gas and rubber bullets so he could have a photo op.
  • You will not stand for Trump using the US military against American citizens.
  • You are disgusted he used a church for a prop without the permission of the Bishop or Rector of the church. 
  • You want them to demand he resign. He is unfit to lead our country. (We all know our Republican members of Congress won’t do this, but we still need to demand it)

Sen. Bill Cassidy – DC OFFICE: (202) 224-5824 and METAIRIE OFFICE: (504) 838-0130

Sen. John Kennedy: DC OFFICE: (202) 224-4623 and NEW ORLEANS OFFICE (504) 581-6190

Rep. Scalise: (202) 225-3015; Rep. Richmond: (202) 225-6636


Then call Governor John Bel Edwards’ office and tell him you do not want the US Military used against citizens in Louisiana. 

Governor John Bel Edwards: (225)342-0991 or (844)860-1413
