Here is the full question - what specific line in Trump's inaugural address do you find offensive? Assuming you have read or heard the speech. What is the goal of the protests...? What part of democracy don't you get? Have you read and understood our Constitution? It is only a few thousand words.

I heard the speech and I can't find any fault with it. In 16 minutes, he evicerated the establishment washington elites. If you accomplished 50% of what he promised, he will go down in history as one of america's greatest president.
You didn't answer my question. What line in the speech do you find offensive? Yes it is oart of democracy to dissent... but not to destroy property and burn vehicles and acting like spoiled brats and cursing...
Do you object to all that?
I object to that and so do 99% of us. It was a handful of ppl that you guys insist on dwelling on, while ignoring that 1+ million peacefully protested all day yesterday.
It's like me saying the Westboro Baptist represents all Christians. Silly.
Aime, let me explain the difference. In the westboro case, it was a fringe goup and attracted little attentiion or following I believe their members are in the low 100s. In the protest in NYC, though peaceful, was lead by some celebrities like Madonn
My point was that the very small # of people who were destroying things are not representative of the whole as seen in the peaceful protests yesterday. Just like I know the WBC is not representative of Christians as a whole.
I wish you would answer what in his speech you are protesting. In any election, words are said, promises are made and hyperbole is used to make some points...Election is over, inauguration speech is his vision for the future, what part is offensive?
I addressed your question wondering why you seem so stuck on his 15 minute inaugural speech like it's the only thing he's ever said that counts? I can give you examples from other things he's said if you like.
This thread is about the speech and the protests. I am not here to debate what he said during the election. If you didn't agree with him then, you had the perfect right to not vote for him. Now, he has won, and he is trying to fix our country.
You do realize that the protests were not specifically about his speech, yes?
Yes, of course. You do realize that people say outrageous things during elections to win votes and attract attention? I personally didn't agree with his strategy, but it worked for him. What do we do now should be the focus? I am holding him to his w
Mike, that line I believe he was referring to the high number of shooting in Chicago, Obama's home town. It increased 60% in just the last year.
