    I suspect this will be part of the new status quo, as I don't recall Democrats rioting and issuing threats in 2000/2004 or Republicans doing the same in 2008/2012 - even when the scuttlebutt was that you'd see a surge in the Klan if a black man was elected.

    This year seems to be different. I remember reading stories about how we'd see a civil war if Hillary was elected or if she went for the guns. Obviously we can only speculate on what would have happened there, but I'm disappointed by the reaction to the Trump election. I was pointed to https://twitter.com/CWCSonichu/status/796268203618004992. I've read about the fires and smashed windows in Oakland (because someone think Oakland could ever go red?).

    How long do you think this will go on? How bad will things be on Jan 20? Do these folks think this will convince Trump supporters to change their minds (and if so, shouldn't that lead to terrorism charges?)?

    Some lady got hit by a car during UCSD student's protest. It was a relatively peaceful and organized protest with people wandering around campus shouting **** Trump, but then they decided to take over Interstate 5 and then one lady got hit by a car. It's not violence, but still..

    (I'm an alumni so I keep in touch with UCSD)

    Also, so what if Trump supporters change their mind. Trump won the Electoral Votes, the election is over.

    Some pseudo comedian from the UK Tweeted something similar yesterday. Of course as soon as someone copied USSS and FBI on the Tweet, he deleted it. Regardless, I am sure he received a visit.

    It is stupid.

    If you actually watch the protests it's a bunch of dumb kids who don't even know why they are out there except "because". Fox was attempting to interview people on the ground and the best they got was **** Donald Trump

    Soros had cash. Spared no expense. Just like that Hammond character on Jurassic Park.

    Peter Weller moved on now. He's a professor. No time to be dressing up in a robo suit.

    I'm not a Trump fan. To be fair not exactlg Hillary supporter either. I'm appalled at some people's reaction to a disfavorable outcome. Absolutely unacceptable. This is part of living in a democracy. How have we come to a point where people are so childish to not getting their way. And what are we protesting and demanding for? Impeachment of someone who hasn't even been inagurated...what? I'm not happy about the results, but I'm going to respect Trumps opportunity to serve.

    The votes are in, the game is over. Shake hands, get off the field, be respectful.

    Trump wanted to spew out hateful and derogatory speeches, and actually win. Well it only makes sense when the opposition is unruly.

    When the GOP thought they had a slim chance, they had no problem with Trump supporters putting there hands on single protesters. They even put their hands on some that weren't even protestors, just cause they were black or muslim. And Trump encouraged it. Now all of the sudden after a win, it's a kum ba yah GOP. :cool::cool::cool::cool:

    Lets not forget the DNC paying people to incite violence at Trump Rallies.

    Thank you for this post, it's very meaningful.
    Earlier a protestor interviewed on CNN said that to fight Trump someone has to die. It's very sad when people are not willing to give an elected official even a single day on the job before jumping to (dangerous) conclusions.

    Shorter Version (with original audio)


    Longer Version (with car stealing and dragging, but audio replaced with background music)
    https://twitter.com/MiddleOfMayhem/status/796545047915331586

    Warning: Violence

    Video of black people attacking a Trump supporter, stealing his car, and dragging him. I do hope they are charged.

    Recommendation - watch the shorter one for the original audio, and then watch the longer one.

    I wonder where that mom is from the Baltimore Riots. I see some Black kids that need to be publicly slapped.

    People don't give Trump a chance. It's like Trump just spanked all the Clinton's supporters behind's all at once.

    There would have been protests either way...

    As long as they are peaceful that is fine. If not that is bad.
