An article in the NY Post yesterday described protesters' behavior after the election (my comments in parentheses):
Anti-Trump protesters take to the Streets across America
Thousands of protesters chanting, “Trump is Hitler!” stormed up Sixth Avenue en route to Trump Tower on Fifth Wednesday night in one of many demonstrations nationwide against the new president-elect.
(Transcendental meditators chant in order to empty their minds; for Leftist protesters, it seems superfluous.)
Those in the mob first gathered in Union Square to vent their anger over the election results.
(Union Square is the usual gathering place for drug dealers, drug users, panhandlers, and others with nothing constructive to do.)
They later took to the streets and headed to Trump’s headquarters and penthouse apartment in Midtown, where they climbed light poles and burned flags. There were at least 62 people arrested, police sources said.
(Hey, if we clog up traffic, that's not our problem.)
“That man who is not our president, we are going to make him hear us,” declared one demonstrator, 34-year-old Shannon Malone...
(Shannon, you may not have voted for Trump, but like it or not, he is everybody's President for the next four years.)
A large marching band joined the procession, as angry cabbies and other motorists who were stuck in the sudden traffic chaos honked their horns and cursed.
(Don't the protesters realize that it's precisely this sort of behavior which converts onlookers into Trump supporters?)
(Actually, the protesters are what HRC's supporters look like; and if you take into account the likely fraud, Trump probably won the popular vote as well.)
A number of demonstrators were placed under arrest for disorderly conduct, others climbed a utility pole, and one group could be seen burning an American flag.
“Donald Trump, go away. Racist, sexist, anti-gay,” the crowd shouted.
(Cogent analysis seems beyond most of them, so Leftists do what children do: call names.)
Heloïse, a 9-year-old fourth- grader whose family moved here from France, was one of the youngest protesters at the march.
“I think it’s unfair. We voted for Hillary Clinton, but it is Trump who won. It is unfair,” Heloïse said.
(If Heloise did vote, it would have been no more illegal than the many dead people, illegal aliens, and multiple voters who undoubtedly voted for Hillary.)
“We were going to go for a school trip to Washington to watch Hillary come to power in January, but now we’re not because she didn’t win.”
(Heloise's complaint is understandable for a 9-year-old -- the trip she'd been looking forward to was canceled. But had she fully grasped that most of the grownups surrounding her were no more mature than she, she might not have felt quite such solidarity.)
Protesters also gathered in Chicago, where thousands blocked the entrance to that city’s Trump Tower.
(That'll show 'em. Most of the residents of the tower, which was completed in 2009, undoubtedly decided to buy or rent there because they anticipated Trump's political run and platform.)
In Boston, thousands of protesters streamed through downtown, chanting, “Trump’s a racist” and carrying signs that said “Impeach Trump” and “Abolish Electoral College.”
(Normally, a country waits until a President assumes office before trying to impeach him.)
On the West Coast, people smashed windows and spray-painted anti-Trump graffiti in Oakland.
(Oakland without broken windows and graffiti would be unrecognizable anyway.)
Several hundred people flooded onto one of the busiest freeways in Los Angeles, causing a miles-long traffic backup.
(That's okay, commuters in Los Angeles don't depend on the freeways.)
(Many of them undoubtedly thinking, "Hmm, these protesters really do have logic and rationality on their side. Maybe I should have voted for Hillary.")
There was no violence between officers and protesters.
Back in Manhattan, protesters unleashed their rage at the states that helped elect Trump.
“F–k Florida!” and “F–k Indiana!” people shouted, along with “F–k Mike Pence!” and “F–k Giuliani!”
(Doesn't this sound an awful lot like a childish temper tantrum? Doesn't it make an eloquent statement about the infantile nature of Leftist protesters?)
Protesters held signs that read “Impeach Trump,” “Don’t lose hope,” “Trump makes America hate” and “Not my president.”’
(Why is it always the most hateful, rage-filled people who accuse others of being "haters?")
At one point, the protesters gathered in a semicircle and took turns giving reasons why they believe the Republican billionaire developer should be impeached — despite the fact that he’s not in power yet.
“Rapist,” “anti-Semitic,” “anti-LGBT,” “incest,” and “KKK,” are a few of the responses protesters ticked off.
(Trump's daughter Ivanka has converted to Judaism; if in fact he is guilty of incest, wouldn't that make him philo-Semitic rather than anti-Semitic?)
“I am not happy, I have no words, This country is going to sh-t and it’s scary, I feel bad for my kids,” said Nancy Gomez, 38, through tears.
(In fact, Nancy, you do have words. "Shit," for one. But at least we agree on one thing: I feel bad for your kids too.)
Did people on the Right cry after Obama was elected? Did conservatives march around chanting "Fuck Obama!" and "Impeach Obama" in the days after he was elected?
No. And that's really all you need to know about politics to understand the mentality of each side.
