To open: I think Trump is a scumbag and I in no way support him. HOWEVER…
“Protesters who assembled in the area — some throwing rocks and bricks at the police — had smashed car windows…Earlier in the day, protesters destroyed the glass front of a Bank of America and a Starbucks in the area; images captured some people holding hammers…”
So, to protest the election of a hateful candidate, you engage in violent, hateful, destructive activities? Yeah, that makes sense.
Also, you are aware – I hope – that being a police officer does not make you inherently a Trump supporter (amazing I’d have to say that, but see below), and that police officers preventing people from smashing windows has nothing to do with Trump. It’s called “their job”. You know…keeping the peace? Something you (I would assume) supposedly support?
Point of note: Just because you think Trump wants to set up a fascist “police-state” does not mean that ALL police officers are – on election day – SUDDENLY fascist opponents of freedom and ardent Trump supporters.
I mean, what are you, ignorant? Read a fcken book or something.
““Police officers,” a woman in the crowd grumbled, “are Trump supporters.””
What are you, a moron? Your actions and your rhetoric are just as ignorant and hateful as the rhetoric you’re SUPPOSEDLY protesting.
It’s called a PEACEFUL TRANSFER OF POWER. Respect it, you dumb fcks.
You wanna protest? Fine, protest. But do it peacefully. You know, like civilized, not-hateful, non-ignorant people. Like the people you supposedly are, not like the people you supposedly oppose.
“They chanted — “We are a peaceful protest!” — but by late morning, several shop windows in downtown Washington had been shattered…”
By the way, you wanna know why Trump won? I mean, besides racism, sexism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, etc…
But seriously, ONE small part of why he won is this: A lot of people that are NOT racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, xenophobic a$$holes were just tired of the upward-trending snarky elitism from certain groups…
So way to go, antitheists. You’ve helped elect Donald Trump.
I think Dick Dawk’s “Mock them. Ridicule them in public.” method didn’t work QUITE as well as he’d (and they’d) hoped.
