After the election
A British take on the American tantrums
Following the collapse of the various polls slanted to favor 2016 Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, paid protestors and disillusioned millineals took to the streets of major American cities to voice their displeasure with a democratic republic (as shown in the excerpts from a 9 November 2016 article by The Sun.
Police said at least 500 people swarmed on streets in and around UCLA, some shouting ‘f**k Trump’ and others chanting ‘Not my president!’
There were no immediate arrests.
Smaller demonstrators were held at University of California campuses and neighbourhoods in Berkeley, Irvine and Davis and at San Jose State.
In Oakland, more than 100 protesters took to downtown streets. KNTV-TV reported that protesters burned Trump in effigy, smashed windows of the Oakland Tribune newsroom and set tires and trash on fire.
The California Highway Patrol says a woman was struck by a car during the protest and severely injured.
In Oregon, dozens of people blocked traffic in downtown Portland and forced a delay for trains on two light rail lines.”
Odd that it takes a newspaper from Britain to point out that the groups consist of sometimes “dozens” or other times “hundreds.” It seems that many American news sources avoid mentioning the numbers of protesters (just as they avoided mentioning the tens of thousands at Trump rallies or the dozens at Kaine rallies).
Liberals across America protest the choice of the people
Reuters documents through a 10 November 2016 article how liberals have stooped to committing public violence by the hundreds in a few of the major cities of America:
“A second round of protests was planned across the United States on Thursday a day after thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of big cities after Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election.
An anti-Trump rally was planned at New York City’s Union Square Park for a second straight night and organizers urged demonstrators to join events in Washington D.C., Baltimore, the University of Wisconsin and elsewhere.
There were protests in at least 10 cities on Wednesday, including one that filled streets in midtown Manhattan with demonstrators marching to Trump Tower, the president-elect’s gilded home on Fifth Avenue. Many chanted ‘Not my president!’ and blasted his campaign rhetoric about immigrants, Muslims and other groups.
Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and a high-profile Trump supporter, said the demonstrators were ‘a bunch of spoiled cry-babies.’
‘If you’re looking at the real left-wing loonies on the campus, it’s the professors not the students,’ Giuliani said on Fox News on Thursday. ‘So these are the ones who are more influenced by the professors.’
He said he would encourage Trump to listen to these voices and tell them to wait a year.
‘Calm down, things are not as bad as you think,’ Giuliani said.
More demonstrations are planned heading into the weekend, according to organizers’ online posts. One urged protesters to rally in Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20.
On Wednesday night, protests in Los Angeles and Oakland, California, each drew several thousand people. More than a dozen people were arrested by Los Angeles police when demonstrators tried to block a major highway intersection, a local CBS affiliate reported.
The Oakland demonstrators also blocked traffic, threw objects at police and smashed store front windows. Police responded by throwing chemical irritants at the protesters, according to a Reuters witness.
‘ENJOY YOUR RIGHTS’
Protesters also gathered in Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Portland, Oregon, and Austin, Texas, late on Wednesday.
Some 1,800 people gathered outside the Trump International Hotel and Tower in downtown Chicago, shouting slogans including ‘No Trump! No KKK! No racist USA.’ There were no immediate reports of arrests or violence there.
‘I’m just really terrified about what is happening in this country,’ said Adriana Rizzo, 22, in Chicago, who was holding a sign that read: ‘Enjoy your rights while you can.’
In Seattle, police responded to a shooting with multiple victims near the scene of an anti-Trump protest. Authorities said it was unrelated to the demonstration.
A Trump campaign representative did not respond to requests for comment on the protests. Trump said in his victory speech he would be president for all Americans, saying: ‘It is time for us to come together as one united people.’
Among the demonstrators earlier on Wednesday were hundreds of high school and college students who walked out of class in cities including Seattle, Phoenix and San Francisco’s Bay Area.
About 300 mostly Latino high school students marched to City Hall in Los Angeles where they chanted in Spanish “the people united will never be defeated.’ Some waved signs with slogans such as ‘Immigrants Make America Great.’
Many of those students were members of the ‘Dreamers’ generation – children whose parents entered the United States with them illegally, school officials said, and who fear deportation under a Trump administration.”
Doesn’t this sound a lot like the wrath from the Soros-funded groups like Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, and the National Action Network? Of course, after the release of the Veritas Action videos where Democrat operatives Scott Foval and Bob Creamer admitted to arranging for violence during protests, who would expect less?
Kent County GOP headquarters vandalized
A 9 November 2016 article by Channel 8 Wood.TV from Grand Rapids told of the wrench thrown into the window of the Kent county Republican party:
“The Kent County GOP headquarters in Grand Rapids was vandalized following the election.
John Burri told 24 Hour News 8 he was going to the main office on Lake Michigan Drive to get a new Donald Trump sign after his was stolen overnight when he discovered that a window had been smashed by a wrench.
The wrench didn’t go through the window, but did leave some large cracks.
Kent GOP members said despite an election that’s divided the country, it’s time to work together.”
This comes from the side that predicted riots after a Trump loss, probed Trump as to whether he would accept a defeat, and even classifies resistance to their views as “hate.” Remember “love trumps hate?” Which side has beaten old men, smashed property, and promoted assassination recently?
Richmond Republican headquarters
The NBC affiliate in Richmond provided a 9 November 2016 article which explained:
Hundreds of anti-Trump protesters gathered in Richmond Wednesday night, a day after the presidential election. NBC12’s Mike Valerio was covering the protests when someone attacked him.
‘You created this, you understand that?!’ yelled the unknown assailant.
‘We’re not about that!’ yelled another protester as they pulled the assailant away from Mike Valerio.
Protesters flooded the street, shutting down roads and chanting anti-Trump messages.
During the protests, the Republican headquarters in downtown Richmond was vandalized, with windows smashed after someone threw a pumpkin at the door. The doorbell was also broken, and graffiti was painted on the building.
Protesters marched onto Interstate 95 around 10 p.m., blocking southbound traffic. Police had removed all the protesters and reopened the lanes by 10:30 p.m.
More protesters blocked off I-195 later in the evening. Police say the protesters sat down on the interstate and refused to move.
According to Richmond Police, 10 protesters were arrested and charged with unlawful assembly and for being pedestrians on an interstate. All of the protesters arrested were between the ages of 20 to 26. Traffic was back open by 12:15 a.m.
Also overnight, two monuments on Monument Avenue were vandalized.
Although one picture caption within this article remarked on “thousands” of protestors (while only showing about 20), the body of this article does the rare act for American news sources when it points to the “(h)undreds of anti-Trump protestors.”
Nonetheless, putting aside the magnitude of the riots, why doesn’t President Obama or Secretary Clinton call for an end to the riots?
Man beaten by “compassionate” Hillary supporters
The following video (taken in Chicago) shows a group of black Hillary supporters who beat an old white who they identify as being a Trump supporter. The video ends with the thugs stealing the man’s car and dragging him as he holds to the car.
During the campaign
Alamance County Republican party headquarters were vandalized
According to a 4 November 2016 WTVD article, it was reported that a photo of the vandal who destroyed parts of the Alamance County Republican party headquarters has been released:
“The Alamance County Republican Party headquarters has been vandalized.
Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of the North Carolina Republican Party, sent ABC11 photos that show the headquarters on Ramada Road in Burlington with graffiti spray-painted on walls, signs, and doors.
‘F*** Trump’ was written on a wall, and ‘NA’ spray-painted on the door. ‘Republican’ is crossed out in paint on a sign.
Anyone with information should contact the Burlington Police Department at (336) 229-3503 or anonymously to the Alamance County-wide Crimestoppers at (336) 229-7100. Crimestoppers is a partnership between the public, the media, and the police to fight against crime that may provide a reward of up to $2,500 for information that leads to an arrest.
‘It’s an unfortunate thing. Really, it’s sad that someone wants to express themselves that way as opposed to having a civil discussion and talking about where we have differences,’ said Alamance County GOP Chairman Ben York.
Burlington residents also expressed disappointment.
‘I mean, it’s like people don’t have any respect for nothing anymore. Not for anybody’s property and it’s just really, really terrible to see people do something like this for an election,’ offered resident David Woodruff.
Last month, someone threw a bottle filled with flammable liquid through the front window of the Orange County Republican Party headquarters in Hillsborough.”
Republican HQ in North Carolina firebombed
The CBS affiliate WNCN reported in a 16 October 2016 article that the Orange County Republican headquarters in Hillsborough was hit with a Molotov cocktail and spray painted.
“The Republican Party headquarters in Orange County was vandalized and firebombed with what police described as a ‘Molotov cocktail’ overnight, Hillsborough officials said Sunday.
The building at 347 Ja-Max Drive was hit with graffiti and ‘flammable material’ in a bottle was thrown through a window starting a fire inside, Hillsborough police said in an email.
Graffiti that said ‘Nazi Republicans leave town or else’ was spray painted in black paint on the side of a building next to the Republican headquarters, according to police.
That graffiti ncluded a swastika and was discovered before 9 a.m. by a nearby business owner, officials said.
‘The flammable substance appears to have ignited inside the building, burned some furniture and damaged the building’s interior before going out,’ said police, who describe the object as a Molotov cocktail.
No one was hurt and no damage estimates were available. Police are working with the ATF to investigate and the FBI was added to the investigation, officials said in an update late Sunday.
The North Carolina Republican Party released a statement Sunday afternoon calling the incident a ‘vicious attack’ and ‘hate crime’ and said they would increase security at events and offices.
Denver Republican headquarters vandalized
The Denver Post reveals through a 4 November 2016 article how vandals broke windows and spray painted the Colorado Republican party headquarters:
“A brick wall on the side of Donald Trump’s campaign office in Denver was vandalized late Thursday or early Friday by a perpetrator or perpetrators who wrote foul language and called the Republican presidential nominee a ‘thief’ and ‘pervert’ in big, block letters. The building’s windows were also defaced.
Sonny Jackson, Denver police spokesman, said a call was made at 7:20 a.m. about anti-Trump graffiti.
‘It’s an anti message. We’ll investigate it using all the tools we have at our disposal including viewing (footage from security cameras) to determine who did this,’ Jackson said.
Later, at about 9 p.m. Friday, Trump staffers reported a rock tossed through a window of the same headquarters. Television footage from the scene showed a hole slightly bigger than a softball in the window.
This isn’t Denver’s first case of political graffiti this election season. Earlier this year, a mural portraying Democrat Bernie Sanders in the city’s Five Points neighborhood was marked with the words ‘loser,’ ‘sellout’ and ‘traitor’ after he endorsed Hillary Clinton.
The Trump campaign had no comment.
