I have not seen this many Democrats throw this much of a hissy fit about a Republican president since 1860 when Abraham Lincoln became President-Elect.
…he(Lincoln) showed me his recent contributions by mail of the [Southern] chivalry; there were editorials, in pompous language, referring to him as the Illinois ape, a baboon, a satyr, a negro, a mulatto, a buffoon, a monster, an abortion, an idiot, etc. There were threats of hanging him, burning him, decapitating him, flogging him, etc. The most foul, disgusting and obscene language was used in the press which were the organs of the Southern elite par excellence, of the nation, as they thought. Nor had the limner’s art been neglected: in addition to several rude sketches of assassination, by various modes, a copy of Harper’s Weekly was among the collection, with a full length portrait of the President-elect; but some cheerful pro-slavery wage had added a gallows, a noose and a black cap.
-Henry Clay Whitney, 1860
Am I suggesting that the idiot children of the middle class, the effete Social Justice thumbsuckers who couldn’t bust a grape in a fruit fight will attempt secession? Not at all.
Downtown L.A. Anti-Trump Protests Lead to More Than 200 Arrests: LAPD
As a third night of protests over Donald Trump’s election swept through major cities, more that 200 people were arrested in the downtown Los Angeles area, police said Friday.
The Los Angeles Police Department made 185 arrests, and the California Highway Patrol made 30 arrests, an LAPD spokesperson said.
One officer was in stable condition Friday after being assaulted by someone who was trying to tag LAPD headquarters with graffiti. The individual involved was also hospitalized.
Most of the protesters appeared to be young — under 30. One young man told KTLA that there was a feeling of “love” and unity among Trump’s critics.
“When you’re in that crowd … you know everyone’s not just saying ‘F Donald Trump’ just to say it,” protester Arnold Jimenes told KTLA. “Everyone feels that this man should not be representing our country.”
Nothing says “love” and “unity” like coming together for just two minutes every day to hate Emmanuel Goldstein…I mean Donald Trump and reaffirm our love and unity for Big Brother.
Let’s look at a little more “love” that Hillary backers have in their hearts.
BROOKLYN SINGER CHARGED WITH ASSAULT DURING ANTI-TRUMP PROTESTS IN MANHATTAN
The lead singer of the Harlem Gospel Choir is under arrest, accused of assaulting a Trump supporter during an anti-Trump demonstration in Manhattan Thursday night.
Shacara McLaurin, 23, of Brooklyn was arrested a short time after performing at the Plaza Hotel.
Her family says she and a friend walked past the protest in front of Trump Tower, when a Trump supporter assumed they were protesters and followed them, calling them the N word.
The 74-year-old Trump supporter suffered a cut on his head. Mclaurin is expected to be arraigned Friday afternoon.
The arrest came as a large group of demonstrators once again gathered outside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue Thursday night.
McLaughlin was charged with felony assault. She is believed to be a Clinton supporter.
“This was a dispute over the Clinton Trump campaign,” police said.
He choked me! And threw me out! And called me a n*gger!
Oh, wait, this isn’t Azaelia Banks.
Black females love them some Jesus. They love Jesus so much that they’ll get done singing hymns and praise songs, then go fight in the streets because somebody said something they don’t like. Read Matthew 10:14; If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet.
They love singing and dancing for Jesus, but they don’t like doing what Jesus told them.
Moving on to Democratic People’s Republic of Portlandia.
Another night of nationwide protests against Donald Trump’s election came to a head in Portland, where thousands marched and some smashed store windows, lit firecrackers and sparked a dumpster blaze.
Some 4,000 protesters surged into the downtown area late Thursday night with chants like “we reject the president-elect!”
Yes, these are the people who should have the policymaking power in America; the ones who destroy property and start riots when they don’t get their way. These are the “love” and “unity” people. They’re against haters like Donald Trump. And business owners. And dumpsters.
Head on down the Left Coast to Oakland.
Crews were mopping up Oakland’s downtown and parts of Uptown on Friday morning, following a third night of protests opposing the election of Donald Trump that included at least 11 arrests.
Although smaller and less chaotic than Wednesday’s protest, Thursday’s march was marked by dumpster fires and broken windows in at least two downtown businesses.
The 11 arrests, plus another seven citations issued were for a variety of suspected crimes, including assault on officers, vandalism, failure to disperse and public intoxication.
One of the people arrested had a cache of Molotov cocktails, Officer Johnna Watson said early Friday.
“HURR HURR! Uneducated Trump voters!”
Do you know what the non-college educated Trump voters didn’t haven’t been doing for the last three days? Clogging up the streets, destroying property and trying to burn shit down.
Let’s hop across the flyover states (because who cares what these unwashed, landlocked non-degreed peasants think, am I right?) to Richmond, VA.
As roughly 150 anti-Trump protesters took to the streets of Richmond Wednesday night, the state Republican headquarters and several monuments were vandalized, including the Jeff Davis Memorial, which was spray-painted with the phrase “your vote was a hate crime.”
Virginia State Police arrested 10 people and Richmond Police arrested two more. All were charged with unlawful assembly. Of the 12 arrested, 10 were VCU students.
“We represented ourselves very well…except for the vandalism and property destruction.”
But the most disturbing incident is the “your vote was a hate crime” graffiti, because it reflects the tribal mentality of the anti-Trump brigade.
They cluck their tongues at anything they think is “right-wing violence” but when they run about smashing property, committing assaults, and disturbing public order, it’s okay, because they’re the ones doing it, and they have really, really, REALLY important reasons for doing it. These are the same types who clutch their pearls at that famous Nixon interview in which he stated that (in the context of national security):“Well, when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.””
Yesterday, I posted about how the mainstream media in America is dying due to self-inflicted gunshot wounds to its own head. The American progressives are suffering from a similar ailment; The election on Tuesday demonstrated that the American public does not believe that Democrats in particular and the American Left in general argues any position in good faith, and the reality is that they don’t because they are incapable of doing so. They are incapable of doing so because they have abandoned the tools of reason and logic and grammar, and taken up sophistry and demagoguery. They refused to argue politics and simply proclaimed, loudly and often, that anyone who opposed them was guilty of moral turpitude (You’re a racist/sexist/homophobe/Islamophobe/Immigrantophobe/Transphobe/Tax-phobe/War-phobe/Insert your ad hominem of choice here) and to be disregarded.
And finally, after 50 years of this (its always gone on, but it didn’t become the Democrats primary weapon of choice until the 1964 Presidential election between Barry Goldwater and Lyndon Johnson), the American public is immune to this simplistic name-calling and shaming. Now, when people are called (Insert your ad hominem of choice) they don’t bat an eyelash at it, because they know if the speaker is a Democrat, or some Democrat operative, they are likely full of shit and just trying to circumvent an argument without having to engage it.
Democrats. Anti-Trump protesters. This is the political landscape you have cultivated. This is the level to which you have dragged down political discourse in America. This is the fruit of identity politics and political tribalism. This is the bed which you have made. Now lie quietly in it.
