Before the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Democrats warned of armed participants and mass violence. Then prior to this week’s election, liberals predicted dangerous armed citizens intimidating people at polling places. In the end, neither occurred.
In an ironic turn of events, upwards of 100,000 Hillary Clinton supporters are demonstrating their tolerance and civility by protesting in cities across the country, burning flags, burning effigies of President-elect Donald Trump, burning patrol cars, shutting down freeways and clashing with police, ABC News reports.
Fuelled by outrage on social media, angry crowds assembled in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, New York City, Oakland, Philadelphia, Seattle and Washington, D.C. to inflame their fellow protestors with incitements like “Time To Revolt.” Wednesday night, California cities from Oakland to Los Angeles saw their second night of protests, with rocks and bottles thrown at police and at least 124 arrested nationwide.
So much for the democratic process, liberal “tolerance” and the rule of law. Wasn’t it supposed to be the other side that was so prone to violence?
