Let me share my experience with Indivisible in my community.
1. In the first few months after the November election, promising efforts were taken to build a broadbased, diverse, organized and unified local movement to resist the reactionary agenda of the incoming Trump administration and its allies in Congress.
2. That nascent resistance movement has collapsed.
3. The principal cause for that collapse was the Indivisible movement, an astroturf organization of the Democratic Party.
Indivisible was promoted as a nonpartisan groups working to hold our elected officials accountable to a progressive agenda. This is an obvious falsehood. It is a front group for the Democratic Party. It would not surprise me in the least to learn someday that Indivisible was created by the DNC with the conscious intent to co-opt or derail the vibrant protest movement that sprang up in response to Trump's election.
In my community (Monterey, California), Indivisible members have been markedly hostile towards anyone who doesn't toe the Democratic Party line and have acted as a divisive force overall. The group's sole purpose appears to be to keep people engaged in the Democratic Party, at the expense of building alliances with Greens, socialist, anarchists and independents. A very promising local progressive movement has become completely fragmented and ineffective as a result of their efforts.
The anecdotal evidence I've gathered suggests that, across the country, the resistance is strongest in those communities in which Indivisible is the weakest and weakest in those communities where Indivisible is the strongest. I wonder if other people have had similar experiences in their communities.
Surprisingly, I have seen almost no critical analysis of Indivisible in the progressive or left media, the only exceptions being:
"Beyond Inauthentic Opposition" by Paul Street
"Movements, Moments and Co-optation: Autonomous Resistance to Government Policies" by Jeff Smith
"What is 'the Resistance,' Anyway?" by Danny Haiphong
