Thousands of protesters took to the streets several major urban centers in America Wednesday night to protest the results of the presidential election.
Chants of “Not My President” echoed off skyscrapers in New York, Los Angeles, Oakland, Chicago, Philadelphia and Washington DC – all cities easily carried by Democrat Hillary Clinton on Tuesday.
CNN cameras caught one protester named Lily in Los Angeles who proclaimed:
“If we don’t fight, who is going to fight for us? People had to die for your freedom where we’re at today. We can’t just do rallies, we have to fight back. There will be casualties on both sides. There will be, because people have to die to make a change in this world. Trump, enough with your racism. Stop splitting families. Don’t split my family.”
These kind of vitriolic and violent protests in the streets over the result of a presidential election are rather unprecedented in America, but given the over-the-top rhetoric drummed up y Hillary Clinton and her allies over the past several months, it’s somewhat understandable, isn’t it?
Think about it for a minute. The Clinton campaign had an assembly of this country’s elites from every possible institution lined up on her side. We have been inundated with out political elites, financial elites, academic elites, entertainment elites and media elites telling us that Donald Trump is basically Hitler. And millions of people believed them.
If you woke up Wednesday morning and you learned that a “basket of deplorables” just elected a racist, fascist dictator to lead your country, you’d probably be pretty upset about it.
For all of the commentary over the past several months about the Trump campaign’s “violent, dangerous and un-American” rhetoric, there was barely any thought given to the dangerous outcome related to the Democrats’ dire warnings about a Trump victory.
Yet another failure of the mainstream media during this historic campaign season.
