Trump Protest Feed: Portland Has Descended into Chaos
All across the country, the election of Donald Trump is being protested with increasing fervor. Despite all odds (since all the public odds were rigged) Trump’s sweeping win of the electoral vote was a stunning blow to Hillary Clinton supporters and they’re rioting in the streets. If they want martial law, this behavior is how you get martial law.
And they aren’t taking their loss gracefully. They’re shouting, swearing, crying, and, according to the most frequent word I’ve seen, absolutely terrified. They seem unaware of the irony that when they refer to Trump as a fascist, they’re actually the ones protesting a legitimately elected leader simply because their candidate didn’t win.
The First Amendment guarantees our right to peaceful assembly, but that isn’t what is happening. Injuries, obstruction of roadways, and destruction of property have begun to occur, and I strongly believe the violence will continue to escalate. If you can at all, stay home and away from areas with large gatherings – it doesn’t take much to turn a peaceful crowd into an angry mob. If you are unprepared for civil unrest on this scale, go here for guidance.
We’re a small operation here at DaisyLuther.com, and there are just too many people having hissies because their team didn’t win the trophy. Since we can’t write a new article for each one, I’m putting them into one feed that I’ll refresh throughout the day. Check back for the latest
temper tantrums updates frequently.
