Post-election riots, violence, and demonstrations are occurring in Liberal cities across the nation. Illegal immigrants waving Mexican flags are demanding unearned American rights. The media is ginning up stories by the minute attempting to create a false panic. What do these people think will happen? A re-vote in which Hillary wins?
sort by best latest
I hope that at the very least you would have had a neat-o meme to throw at conservatives if they protested after a Hillary win (which many called for, with guns no less).
No, you are wrong, for the most part. It certainly is frustration, but it is also the beginning of letting the majority who supported Hillary continue to have a voice.
Grace, we are often on the same side of things. This is enlightening. I would have thought 'other libs' would understand; but no, they REALLY think its cool this election was shoved down our throats by angry hoards of haters & transformed into 1
Tell me, how is it possible that Clinton gets more votes but is not the president? Answer: The US is not a true democracy.
Trump and Clinton are both establishment and part of the 1%, they don't give a sh. what you think. Only Trump is a fascist.
You're right Peter, it's not a democracy, it's a republic.
Isn't it amazing how many people truly don't understand how America functions. Trump's election will bring back real education - sweeping common core under the rug. We need our kids to learn facts and skills, not be indoctrinated
Hillary herself said it was the right thing to do to accept whatever resulted, yet where is she to call all this nonsense to a halt? Where is her concern and love for America?
At the same time, many Trump supporters are also violently targeting non-Trump supporters, and minorities have been the targets of attacks for decades now. Don't try to make it one sided.
don't try to hijack the topic - produce your evidence of violence - we're discussing the NOW, not the past
We know from Wikileaks and Project Veritas and many other sources the Republicans had a number of non-profits acting as fronts specifically to organize protests and riots.
Three would be the KKK, White Aryan Resistance, etc..
RJ, I'm not sure if you were commenting on my response, but I am referring to NOW. If HubPages would allow us to do video responses, I would put up news reports that actually show Trump supporters being violent to non-Trump supporters. Look it up.
You could write a hub and include as much video as you want - I'm sure we'd all like to see what you can put together
Soon as some real story breaks, CNN and the rest move on. No news coverage and these stop on their own.
Wrong Ken. You can accept the unfortunate outcome of electing a bully as president but still voice your concern that he will destroy the country, one I share. The Right never gave Obama a days chance before trying to destroy him.
"hard core progressives/socialists, etc. that want to see revolution, blood spilt, cops murdered, etc." You're so out of touch with the opposing side, its ridiculous, Ken. These people are protesting AGAINST things Trump stands for that U just listed
Well said Ken,it's no secret people behind these protests are only interested in creating anarchy & dissent, all the rest are dupes, they can;t change a thing & are being used by operatives to sow discontent.HP supporters of it r dupes too.
If Trump had been a real politician - he would have joined in the recount efforts to ensure the results were clear for the country & unity - instead of crying, since he supposedly has nothing to worry about. Enjoying the Team Trump Squirm. :)
Remember when Hillary lambasted Trump because he mentioned he might not accept the results ?
That's nothing.Reince Priebus told“Fox News Sunday”that Clinton’s team“cut a deal"with Trump’s team specifying once theAPcalled the race in favor of1candidate,the other would call within15minutes to concede which IS what happened.HC RENIGS
We watched Don's clumsy reverse psychology about "drug tests" and "rigged elections". His obvious coke sniffing triggered the "drug test" challenge scam and possibly (really) rigged results triggered the other. O what a tangled web he weaves.
Don't you feel a little foolish with such an outlandish and unproven claim about our President?
They are acting like this because we elected a bigot to office, not because Hilary lost. Half of us didn't necessarily want to vote for Hillary, but she was the least worst choice.
Liberals rioting is becoming normal. The useless BLM riots should have shown these people that it's an unsuccessful tactic because it's no longer shocking. They'll see when the news stops the coverage
Few of you are old enough to remember when America was properly known as the Ugly Americans, but I am. I suspect you are about to see that for yourself for the first time and me for the second time. BTW, HRC WON popular vote; why?
Things are not so simple as to label protestors disrespectful, unpatriotic tantrum throwers. Do some research. Take some interest. Figure out what's wrong instead of this continual judging that only p*sses us OFF, more.
Some of the protestors are probably professionals. They protest anything just to get the attention and cause trouble. Many get paid to protest. Many of the protestors in Portland and other cities are not even from that area.
Most of the protesters arrested in Portland didn't even vote.....professional trouble makers who are following orders.
This election like the last few should be a lesson to America to take the primary elections way more seriously. We need to demand better candidates if we don't like what we are getting. Out of 300 million people in the country we come up with those
America didn't take the primaries seriously?Really?
ME U can’t argue that she’s the‘real’winner of a game that neither candidate was playing. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/442170/hilla...
Hillary won by 2m of the popular vote; while Trump won the electorial vote by talking trash & hate to people who were easily impressed by it - MOST people didn't vote, they each got a little over 20% of the entire country: which is how Trump won.
But how long does that paid protestor continue in this state - the protests are ineffective right now, so do they up the level of violence? It shows no path for success any way you look at it.
don't be silly, I guess the same people where being paid to vote for Trump or to vote for Hillary. Nope, if you have money there are better ways to rise a revolution.
Good point and one I agree with. When there's no media coverage, then there's no riot
This is completely wrong. Media doesn't make money from riots. It loses money. No advertiser says, please put my ad on your riot coverage. Media simply responds to events such as a president-elect who says he knows more about Isis than the generals.
Very poignant answer - looking at things now that he is in office, it seems he's focused on JOBS, support our allies, enforcing the immigration laws, and did I mention JOBS
Talk is that those arrested in the protests are being charged with Felony rioting charges - 10 year potentially in the big house
His ideology includes ALL Americans - liberals are demanding special rights for all their "groups" over the years - now it's back to equality for everyone and no divisionary tactics like Obamas regime
We've never had equality for everyone, and we certainly won't see it with Trump, whose ideology has always been "I've got mine, to hell with the rest of you". Rich white guys will rule, and everyone else will get screwed. Look at his appointees!
RJ, if that were all that Trump had advertised in his campaign, people wouldn't be protesting. People are angry because of all the hate that he has been preaching, and the fact that this bigot is now representing our country.
Ralph,give it up, u can't reason with the brainwashed.Did you know the Hillary campaign spent twice the money Trump campaign spent? yet Hillary lost.Democrats will never learn, they can't get everything they want with other people's money
Thank you, Lisa. "Liberal cities"? Enough with the labels. The people who decided this election wonder why this is happening? Seriously? This is only the beginning of what they are responsible for. Votes matter. Whether you hold your nose or no
Taze & Ralph, if you think YOU haven't had the wool pulled over your eyes, you're kidding yourselves. This election wasn't about the 'big, bad dems' vs 'righteous rightwings' - it was about dividing us DANGEROUSLY deeper. Keep yourselves in check
In what way has he said he's not including everyone you've just listed off?
Catherine - the only person guilty of allowing themselves to be blinded is you - this election is about retaking the nation back from the globalists and handing it back to the people
Donald has always been a globalist himself as his business extends globally. People have fallen for a lie.
You can read on the Daily Stormer how the globalists are paying these protesters through Craigslist to disrupt our nation and paint the President-elect as a racist and anti-Semite.
the President-elect is a racist and endorsed by the KKK.
Notice how direct questions about racism, climate change, nepotism etc simply go unanswered? It's deliberate moral blindness. No KKK here, move along, nothing to see here.
Divide and rule, let the people worry about racism sexism, guy rights and abortion etc. In the mean time Trump uses his presidency to enrich himself. giving his family members key positions. Pure Mafia, godfather eat your heart out.
No, R - that's what Trump duped his supporters to believe: from the heart the mouth speaks. He's been embarrassing as the President-Elect via Twitter rants; lied through his teeth about election rigging, prosecuting Hillary & repealing Obamacare.
Trumps supporters are getting exactly what they expected - a real leader who will get rid of the 8 bad years of O'Blamer
Ralph, I'm sure that, like me, you are looking for Trump to get rid of the influence of the globalists as outline on The Daily Stormer and Breitbart. Guys like Soros and his ilk?

There is no way the protests are going to succeed, but my question is what happens next? Will they morph into something even worse?
Very good answer - right now there must be a lot of fear about their "way of life" being altered once the education, homeland security, immigration, and all the public services are all dramatically changed under Trump
Police should just brutalize all protesters. It would stop the protests. Such brutalization has been very effective in nations who cared about their founding inhabitants a lot more than this country.
Since the election, Trump has ignored trying to unify the country - while continuing to intentionally do everything he can to fracture us right up the middle of every single possible dividing line you can think of. Trump voter: "But...emails!!"
Obama is the one keeping things going by not once asking for calm and letting the law stand as he would have wanted it to if he had won...Oh, I mean Hillary...
Steve Bannon is not antisemitic or racists nor is the news organization he worked for. I have personally read their stories. The reports of him being racist or antisemitic are completely false. False information fuels the fear not facts.
Agreed - this has been debunked - the head of the Jewish coalition has already stood up saying the reports are just smear tactics from the left - still sore about the humiliating loss to Donald Trump
Then you are brainwashed or simply don't understand what it means to be antisemitic and racist because Bannon is both and/or promotes such things. People who read Breitbart support antisemitism and racism. Those are facts.
Breitbart.com: “Bill Kristol: Republican spoiler, renegade Jew,” “Birth control makes women unattractive and crazy,” “Would you rather your child had feminism or cancer?” and “Gay rights have made us dumber, it’s time to get back in the closet.”
The "free cellphone" was used as an example of things so many now feel "entitled" to. I should have used the all encompassing word "entitlements" and it would have made more sense.
I understand what it's in reference to but I think assuming that people are outraged over "entitlements" is dismissing the deep fear and discomfort that people are experiencing. You are assuming the worst of people.
Immature,, entitled brats if you ask me. The time spent protesting could be used to improve themselves educationally & socioeconomically. Such asinine fools!!!! Trump won, GET USED TO IT!
Everybody thought the angry white working class was wasting their time ... didn't they Lolita.
The ignorance some people have about those of us who are protesting this BS is amazing. Judgmental hipocrites, some of whom threatened to bring out GUNS if Hillary won. I realize ignorance & hate won this campaign - neat that we get to continue i
please enlighten us to why people are out protesting then - its not going to change anything and is driving more people to the right (especially business owners who are losing sales because of the riots)
They just need to suffer through the next 4 years, maybe 8, just like we did with Obama.
This man is a bigot. His wife, the first lady, is a porn star. These are not the people who should be representing our country. Also, Obama was degraded the entire time he was in office. People didn't just "accept" him and let it go.
Say what you want about Trump because he deserves it for saying/doing what he does, but why drag Melania into it? Who cares if she posed nude? She wasn't running, she's along for the ride. What she chose to do w/her body doesn't need to be shamed.
It is the character of the man who won. YOU just elected one of the most vile men in politics today. He has spent 55 years of being an overall Terrible person exhibiting all of the Deplorable issues for the whole time. He will not change now.
Aime, you are correct and I am not shaming her. But let's be honest, people (white people) said worse things about Michelle because she wore her arms out. There is always this double standard (cont.)
I agree that it's a double standard but I don't think that means we need to perpetuate the stigma that how much of her body a woman chooses to show affects her qualifications to do anything else.
Danielle - its too bad you can't get past the color wall which you use to judge everyone by - people don't like Michelle Obama because she said she didn't love America and she wasted so many tax dollars jetting around the world on vacation
Actually, people accepted Obama because he didn't run his campaign based off of hate, like Trump did. People are protesting Trump because he is a bigot. Also, Trump does not have more supporters than Clinton. That's why she won the popular vote.
just go through this "Death of Market Research" you will see how all pole results went wrong. We don't have answer. We are trying to figure it out where we are wrong.
Obama set the stage for divisionary politics throughout his eight years in office and now people are complaining about it. Trump will be a great president and Hillary will be a model convict
I have never met Donald Trump personally. His organizations in New York are run very professionally, and offer outstanding services. Thus if a black person gets lost in the crowd, he/she would probably be treated like a white person.
Danielle, what do you call hate? Like calling half his supporters a basket of deplorables. She didn't win the popular vote either because that was not what either if them ran for. Listen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6s7jB6-GoU
I expect feminist uprisings as soon as a new Supreme is seated by Trump. Scared of losing abortion,
"Scared of losing abortion." Well, yeah. I should hope people would fight for keeping safe and legal abortions. Heck, I'll fly down from Canada and stand right beside them if there appears to be a real threat to that.
Then there are people like this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWw41piEnSo&fe... Blacks vote for Obama&Clinton despite southern democrats founded the KKK &all the statistics for blacks have never been worse than under Obama.
Ralph & DTMB....Watch this & then I suggest you delete it. Good to know but not good to share here. Too many babies w/ sensitive psyches.
Shows how much you know, TAZE. Yesterday's Southern Democrats you mention are Today's social conservative far-Right. While the Party may change, the core beliefs of racism, etc don't.
Nice video, Paula. I think the man was mad at the outcome and he expressed it. I'm quite confused though on whether he believed we weren't nasty enough, or we were too nasty. Which one buddy? Sensitive Psyches? Lol That's funny! Try again!
I got halfway through. ANY opinion that is so 1-sided to INSIST that current protestors R bad patriots is in denial. CONCERNED for our country, yes. Protests won't go away until Trump & his supporters figure out how to bridge the divide he STOKED
You are right about things being worse for the blacks but they will never admit it. Some people get and idea and they will die before the change their mind.
ME, thanks for the view from the looney left, Just look at the list of Democrat politicians in the KKK https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_Klan_members...
Funny how an organization like the KKK, which is nearly defunct, seems to be so important to the Liberals and they use the false notion that it's a Republican organization to escape from their past of extreme racism....
Not funny but expected when their lies are exposed, That's all they know how to do or can do, try to slander their opponent or the messenger of facts hoping that people who don't know better will not listen to the truth.
This reminds one of the Occupy Movement. Really WHAT GOOD was that, hmmm? They are insanely infantile. They are acting at the ID level. Accept the fact that Trump is president. Much better than Hillary. I really DIDN'T want Hillary to win!!!
I think the reason behind a lot of this is there is no respect for authority in general.. Most police shooting was because the person was resisting arrest. They are our defenders, they need respect and that would change everything.Just pull the weeds
There is some good that will come out of these tragic events of police being attacked, ambushed, killed, of riots in the streets and the destruction... it will garner Trump more support than ever, giving him and the Republicans support to make change
This is a very ignorant comment. People like you are the reason we are at this point with your judgemental comments. You try to hide behind what you think is a vague comment when in reality you show your true self. We don't need a bigot in office.
That's unlike you Mike, you sound like one those alt-Right types that use pure hyperbole and misrepresentation of the facts to make your point. Nothing you wrote is actually true, unless you were being sarcastic and ironic.
My Esoteric, this is a perfect example of why people are protesting. Trump's bigotry is bringing out the worst in people in this country. This was just a really mean comment on HubPages, but there are people acting out to an extreme.
If they want to change law I can see but you cant come in change it after the fact! Who would even think to try such a thing but bunch of trouble makers? If things get bad enough Obama is in hopes he can do martial law but they r onto him!
