Usually Demonstrators Protest The LACK of an Electoral Process
Not so in liberalville. In liberalville, uber-goobers take to the streets and “protest” a free, fair, legal, legitimate, electoral process.
Then they go to the nearest big box store they a) hate because it’s a big box store assuming b) it’s not one of the stores they just vandalized, looted, or otherwise destroyed, and they purchase safety pins. Like the kind used to secure a diaper. In liberalville the vogue thing to do is to wear a safety pin to show solidarity with those that are “scared” of a Trump Presidency. Because nothing says “my political movement is mature and coherent” like wearing things infants and toddlers wear.
The Nanny State Must Be So Proud of Her Children
And because it’s not scary to have roaming rent-a-mobs showing up in any given downtown to set dumpsters ablaze, toss bricks and molotovs at police, rush into traffic and smash car windows or drag the occupants from their vehicles and beat them because they voted for Trump.
By the way, the term “molotov cocktail” traces its roots back to Vyacheslav Molotov. Vyacheslav was an old school communist – a protégé of Stalin himself. Today’s tossers are protégés of whom? Black Lives Matter, Katy Perry, and hmmm what was her name? Oh yeah, Hillary Clinton.
Oh, That’s Right…Hillary Clinton Was Part of the Electoral Process
If liberalville’s occupiers were to take a breath, stop posting selfies of themselves being “afraid of Trump” on-line, and think for a second, they might realize that they and they alone are to blame for election night.
The Democratic Party ran a primary process. That process didn’t have to produce Hillary as arguably the most flawed candidate since Thomas Eagleton joined McGovern’s failed 1972 bid as the #2 guy on the Democratic ticket. (Eagleton latter withdrew after details regarding his mental health emerged).
There were five big name contenders for the top spot on the Democratic ticket in 2016. Any one of them could have made the run against Trump.
Democrats, you rejected Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley, Lincoln Chaffee, and Jim Webb. And it wasn’t Donald Trump, me, Rush Limbaugh, Ted Nugent, Fox News, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, gender specific bathrooms, or the vast right-wing conspiracy that put Hillary Clinton on your ticket. You did that all by yourselves. You and your sick and twisted cabal of media interests, the SKDKnickerbocker public relations firm, and Hollywood. Hillary Clinton was your best. You said so.
Speaking of The Bern
Speaking of Bernie Sanders, even with Jay-Z rapping the n-word, and the b and w-words for Hillary, not to mention spending more on her campaign than the gross-domestic product of eleven world nations*, Hillary Clinton didn’t manage to win thirteen states Bernie Sanders won during the Democratic primaries.
Remember, Bernie Sanders cleaned Hillary’s clock in 22 states. That’s despite collusion between the Democratic Party and Hillary’s campaign to make sure the Bern was duly extinguished. In 13 of those states, Hillary lost to Donald Trump. In 3 more, her margin of victory over Trump was slim at best. Only in 6 did she win Yuge over the Donald and those included the usual hard-left hangouts like Oregon and Vermont.
So Tell Me Exactly, What Are You People Protesting What Other People Die for?
Most of the uber-goobers protesting Trump’s win weren’t born back in the spring and summer of 1989. That’s when Chinese citizens demonstrated in Tiananmen Square for, among other things, the right to do what we did as a nation on election night.
Back in 1989, it was thought that with the Iron Curtain coming down in Europe, China might also change. The most iconic image from Tiananmen – indeed from that era – was that of a lone Chinese man standing in the path of a Chinese Army tank. Later, those tanks would kill hundreds. Those that weren’t killed were rounded up by the Chinese regime. China’s democracy movement was over.
Looking at the anti-election riots going on in liberalville, I can’t help but realize that today’s liberals wouldn’t have been demonstrating for change in Tiananmen Square. They’d have driven the tanks over anyone standing in the way of their hegemonic tendencies. They’d have rounded up those that dared question their worldview. That’s the key takeaway from all these anti-Trump protests going on.
Unless someone in liberalville can coherently, intelligibly explain what their protests are all about.
After all, the electoral process used on November 8, 2016 was the same that produced every previous President except for Gerald Ford (who was appointed under 25th Amendment provisions following resignation of Vice President Spiro Agnew in 1973; Ford became Vice President with Senate consent and then Ford became President when Nixon resigned the following year).
44 previous Presidents didn’t result in street riots. There were no riots when the first-black President (in this case Barack Obama, not Bill Clinton) won the White House twice. Why is the election of Donald John Trump as number 45 any different?
* Nations with GDPs less than what Hillary Clinton spent to run for President are: Dominica, Tonga, Sao Tome and Principe, Micronesia, Cook Islands, Anguilla, Palau, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Kiribati, Montserrat, and Tuvalu.
