The riots are still going and they’re in more cities than I realized. I checked because aliceaitch commented.
As of last night we were still being told to avoid the area around the Denver capitol building due to protests.
USA Today says,
Cities across the USA saw a new round of protests Sunday,
A new round? Really? They’re the same riots, the rioters just have to sleep and get more stuff to throw.
How many cities?
Manhattan. Other gatherings were taking place in Chicago, Hollywood, Philadelphia, Seattle and Fort Lauderdale, among other cities,…
Austin, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and other cities…
That’s a lot of cities mentioned and there are “others”.
Our fine media betters love stories with juicy video, why hasn’t there been a lot made of this on CNN and Foxnews?
I’m sure when our fine media betters do manage to talk about them (while downplaying them) they’re all about the “Passion” and “Fear” of the “protestors” instead of saying anything about temper tantrums by intellectual infants.
Some other cities
PORTLAND, OREGON (where someone was shot)…LAS VEGAS…
Notice Denver and Phoenix are not listed, but I know that those two cities are seeing the same thing. If I cared all that much for an exact number, I’d have to search for “trump protests (city)”, but really, assume they’re in all large cities and even some smaller large cities, (Like Buffalo, NY)
So how violent are they?
The protests have been mostly peaceful
Very violent then.
How mostly peaceful?
Orlando Sentinel headline
5 arrested after largely peaceful anti-Trump protests downtown
They mention some of the “other cities”
From the USA Today link above
The protests have been mostly peaceful, though Los Angeles, Indianapolis and New York reported some arrests. But in Portland, Ore., police arrested 71
They list some other cities that had some arrests, but I’m gonna assume there’s a lot of arrests that they just don’t want to talk about. Because the ‘protests’ are mostly peaceful.
They must really have been mostly peaceful in L.A.
About 150 anti-Donald Trump protesters were arrested in downtown Los Angeles early Saturday morning
When they say, “About” I’m gonna assume they mean, “closer to 200 than 150”.
So more than 150 arrested. That’s pretty darn mostly-peaceful.
I’m surprised none of these lying sacks of minitrue said the cops were taking the mostly peaceful protesters into custody to save them from Trump supporters.
How are the Dems reacting?
(NJ Senator Cory) Booker: ‘God Bless the Protesters’
I’m not looking for it, but some minitrue outlet said Trump had to calm them down, some things are too stupid to waste my time on.
So do I have a point?
Surprisingly, Yes! To ask what the point of the protests is.
Ben Wikler, Washington director for the professional activist group MoveOn, is quoted – only to insist that these are not organized protests but an “enormous outpouring of spontaneous energy and concern.”…
So USA Today’s first person from “all walks of life” is an organizer who has experience on the activist circuit, and in that capacity she worked on the presidential primary….
So: Phil Roeder, concerned public servant without a partisan agenda, or veteran Democratic activist (hint: veteran Democratic activist V)…
USA Today presents Yong Jung Cho without any introduction. Is she an average citizen, or an experienced protest coordinator? (hint: experienced, Dem-supporting, protest coordinator V)
Read the whole thing if you want to see the perfidy of the Dems and their minitrue allies.
Hired and led by Dem operatives, ignored by other Dem operatives, in support of Dems.
What’s the point of this? To stain Trump? To make their poo-flinging minions feel they’re doing something?
Or, the most paranoid thing I can think of, for Obama to declare marshall law (he can use corpse-men for those injured) to keep the reins of power from the obviously unfit Donald Trump?
This shows that some people have no sense of humor.
Michigan police officer suspended after flying Confederate flag at anti-Trump protest
Okay, that’s funny. I hope he’s suspended with pay and so given an impromptu vacation. Trolling at that level deserves some respect and reward.
Speaking of funny, how funny would it be if Americans, trying to stop the Democratic parties assault on America, vote in Trump only to have that be the catalyst that ‘forces’ the Dems to go full Reichstag Fire on us?
And very endy.
Which is why I’m wondering how paranoid vs. how predictably likely.
A metaphor, (awesome video)
I just hope we’re as fast on our feet as that iguana facing the snakes of the Dem party.
Have a good week!
