Will the protest march on Trump's inauguration succeed in changing things?
Thousands marching in Washington, D.C. to protest Trump's election and inauguration. Can anything good come from this? Will it do more harm than good?
The intent is to deepen divides. Instead of celebrating diversity this nation would do well to remember and learn from the melting pot concept's successes. Yes, we are free to protest, but threats to kill and maim those who do not join the protests are illegal, as they should be. More harm than good seems to be their goal.
If it becomes yet another liberal fascist riot, where people show up to burn down buildings and attack hapless bystanders while screaming bigoted epithets, it will only lead to a crack down on liberal rioters and more public support for such corralling.

And I believe many of the protestors today are likewise paid by liberal groups who think this is justified, though it is reaching the level of an attempted overthrow of a legitimate government.
No I think it's the ultimate in mob mentality. What are they protesting? The man just got sworn in yesterday.
* How many of these people voted?
* Many of the celebrities yelling on the microphones said they'd leave the country if Trump got elected. Why aren't they gone already?
Marching doesn't feed a hungry child, get an underskilled person a job, or find shelter for a homeless person. It doesn't write a book or cook a meal.
But it does show the power of social media.
It will be interesting to see if the march has any results beyond a few days of reporting.
