    Why do you think we are really having the Trump riots

    What do you think is the real reason for the riots against Trump.

    Partly because we have some very clueless citizens in our country, some even foolish enough to say on camera as they are being interviewed for a  news network that they would fight and people would die.

    That's not Democracy, that's called a coup, a violent and illegal overthrow of government.

    These are called extremists by some, lunatics by others, terrorists by a few... Katy Perry and others who tweet about revolution and violence are either complete idiots, or traitors to their country.

    There were 65 million Americans that voted AGAINST Obama in the last election, that felt he was taking our nation in the wrong direction, allowing millions of immigrants to freely cross the border, protecting violent radicals from the FBI investigations rather than protecting American citizens from these radical terrorists, we are lucky we haven't had more attacks and mass murders than we have had... anyways... point is, those 65 million weren't rioting in the streets... they didn't call for an overthrow of the government.  They accepted the outcome and moved on... that's how a civilized society does it.

    The OTHER part of this... is that some of this is being funded and co-ordinated by MoveOn.irg, BLM, and other extremist movements that do not care at all about law, order, or what America is and stands for... these groups are out their burning the American flag, waiving the Mexican flag,, destroying property, killing police... THEY are the problem, not Trump, not our election process, not America.

      Thank you for your comment.  You are right.  Some people riot and they do not know why.  They just do it.  I live in the Central Valley of CA which is usually a peaceful place.  Now there is not a day goes by that some one does not get shot.

      Trump called for protests in 2012.  Looks like you just elected a complete idiot and/or traitor.  Oops!

      Aime calling for a march on Washington is NOT the same as calling for Revolution and calling for Trumps murder... Trump never said someone should go kill Obama, some of these IDIOTIC pop-stars are stating that or equally bad in their rants.

    They are organized by MoveOn and other liberal groups just as the Trump rally violence instigated by liberals was done by these same fake charities/non-profits.
    The DNC hired people to create violence to blame on conservatives, now they are simply being violent and blaming conservatives.

    (1) The UNDERLYING Reason:
    Many are protesting the fear of what will occur in America as a result of the Trump presidency.  They contend that their rights will be taken away.  They also fear what will happen to non-Caucasians, women, the LGBT community, & other marginalized groups. 

    (2) UNNERVED, even DISCOMBOBULATED at Election Outcomes:
    They are quite surprised, even unnerved that Trump has won the election.  They wanted Clinton to win.  They viewed Clinton as a symbol of an overgrowing, evolving America & saw the Trump win as a regression, even devolvement.  They refuse to even consider how Trump will improve America, concentrating on the economy, not so much as sociopolitical programs.  They saw NO WRONG w/Clinton while seeing NO RIGHT w/Trump.

    They refuse to accept Trump as the new president as many did when Obama became president.  When Obama became president, many became quite unhinged- being threatened by the first Black president as such disturbed their Caucasian hegemony.  Now having digressed, let's return to the context of the discussion, many AREN'T about to accept the fact that Trump is president.  So instead of accepting that Clinton didn't win graciously & maturely, they elected to demonstrate verbally, even physically that Trump is NEVER going to be their president & will do their best to disrespect him at every turn.

    So they believe that Clinton SHOULD HAVE won for one reason or another, not realizing that everyone doesn't always get what h/she wants.  They refuse to acknowledge that the majority of Americans have spoken & didn't want Clinton whose administration will be a continuation of Obama.  The American people wanted a workable America w/sound socioeconomic solutions.  However, those who voted for Clinton didn't see this, only concentrating on negative hyperbole so they felt that they were left w/no other recourse but to make their anti-Trump angst VERY PUBLIC.   In other words, since they DIDN'T have their way, they intend to let OTHERS know this.   To be more succinct, they are acting like spoiled, entitled brats who are whining because they didn't get their election wishes.
