Democrats Protest Democracy

Protesters across the nation express anger at the election of Trump.

Yesterday, America awoke to the unexpected reality that Donald Trump was president-elect. Many Americans felt some combination of relief, excitement and optimism after being fed up with the last eight years of Washington elitists foisting their socialist agenda upon the country. But most Democrats expressed shock, dismay and disbelief as they saw their grip on national power evaporate overnight.

What do leftists do when their candidate loses? These disconsolate and emotionally incontinent “adolescent adults” protest, violently if “necessary.”

From New York City to San Francisco, Boston to Austin, DC to Seattle, Chicago to Portland, angry and disgruntled leftists spilled into the streets, holding up signs and chanting, “Not my president.” In Chicago, hundreds gathered outside Trump International Hotel and Tower shouting, “No Trump! No KKK! No racist USA!” One young woman holding up a sign that read, “Enjoy your rights while you can,” said, “I’m just really terrified about what is happening in this country.”

In Oakland, the protesting crowd grew to 6,000 and began rioting by smashing windows and setting fires so that law enforcement was brought in to quell the situation. Neighboring San Francisco saw hundreds of people marching and chanting “Donald Trump has got to go.” One woman brought her five-year-old son to the protest and said through tears, “I don’t know how to explain to him the state of the world. I want him to understand that there aren’t all evil people out there.” Well, she certainly could have chosen a better venue to seek to reinforce that ideal.

What is truly ironic about leftist action and rhetoric is the fact that what they claim to fear and decry is the very thing they practice. By labeling those who disagree with their point of view as bigots and racists, they are displaying the very hate they claim to be combating. And it’s truly ironic that the “Democratic” Party has the most trouble adhering to and practicing the ideals of “democracy.”
