Temper Tantrums, Deceit, and False Accusations Break Out Across the U.S.A.

Remember back after the last two elections how the Conservatives and Republicans broke into violent rioting after being disappointed by Barack Obama's victories in those two presidential elections?  Me, neither.

We don't remember "right-wingers" throwing temper tantrums after the elections because it didn't happen.  Those bothered by the results of the 2012 and 2008 elections organized, rallied, and worked to influence future elections in the hopes of regaining control of the country's future.

The Tea Party actually emerged prior to the 2008 election, in the hope of derailing an Obama victory.  The rallies were peaceful, pleasant, positive, and they left the locations they rallied at cleaner than they found them.

I do remember Rush Limbaugh saying he hoped Obama would fail, and there was a national liberal left freak-out about how Limbaugh wasn't going to at least give Obama a chance.  They screamed about how the conservatives should be fair, and that it was wrong to say that Obama's policies were a failure before he had a chance to implement them.  In the following years Republicans in Congress who did not act as a rubber stamp for Obama's desires were called "obstructionists," and Congress was accused of being "broken."

After the Trump election one of the most common chants by Democrat Party tools who have ceased to think for themselves out there is, "Not my President."  Liberal left groups have vowed to be as much of an obstruction as they can be.

Protesters claim it is their First Amendment right to march in protest of the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.  Remember, these are the same people attempting to silence their opposition through political correctness, safe-spaces, free-speech zones, and draconian laws like the ones targeting religious freedom in an attempt to appease a small minority of sexual deviants.  For these snowflakes, free speech is scary if it disagrees with Democrats.  They are afraid they may be offended, and that would just be. . . offensive.

When it comes to their constitutional right (I don't like that term, we don't have constitutional rights, we have God-given rights - or you can call them Natural Rights) to protest, let's take a look at the First Amendment just to see if the violent liberal left agitators are accurate.

The First Amendment reads, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

The key word there is "peaceably."  You can assemble in a peaceful manner, but you have no right to be violent in the context of what you are doing.  Yes, according to the Declaration of Independence we also have the right to "alter or to abolish" our government if it becomes tyrannical - and that can become a violent revolution if necessary, hence the purpose of the Second Amendment being in existence.  But, when it comes to basic protests, rallies and petitioning for a redress of grievances, the assembly of persons must be peaceful if we wish to call it a "right."

Now, let's take a look at a few headlines regarding the cry-baby snowflakes out there who are basically a bunch of mindless tools who have been convinced by the liberal education system, media and entertainment industry that Trump is some kind of Hitler (we can throw into that crowd a bunch of "Never-Trump" babies, too).

New York Post: Scenes from the Liberal Meltdown
Stop the insanity!
Days after Donald Trump stunned the world by winning the presidency, liberal America remains in the throes of a massive mental and emotional meltdown.
Anti-Trump protests have spread to more cities and continue to turn violent. In Portland Thursday night, rioters stoned police and vandalized businesses and cars.
Anyone expressing support for Trump has become the target of unrestrained venom: There are calls to boycott New Balance — its sneakers have been publicly burned — because an official said Trump would be better on trade issues.
Meanwhile, the CEO of Grubhub, the online food-delivery service, demanded that employees who agree with Trump resign, because “you have no place here.” (He had to retreat: His lawyers read him the First Amendment and noted that political discrimination also violates California law.)
This is just vicious stuff. But for pure pathos crossing into the absurd, we turn (as usual) to the college campus. Consider:
  •  The University of Michigan offered its traumatized students coloring books and Play-Doh to calm them. (Are its students in college or kindergarten?)
  •  The University of Kansas reminded its stressed-out kids that therapy dogs, a regular campus feature, were available.
  •  Cornell University, an Ivy League school, held a campus-wide “cry-in,” with officials handing out tissues and hot chocolate.
  •  Tufts University offered its devastated students arts and crafts sessions. (OK, not kindergarten — more like summer camp.)
At campuses from elite Yale to Connecticut to Iowa and beyond, professors canceled classes and/or exams — either because students asked or because instructors were too distraught to teach.
The Oregonian: Man shot on Morrison Bridge during Portland anti-Trump Protest
Police released a statement confirming the man was injured during the protest march but suffered injuries that weren't life-threatening. The victim, whom police did not identify, was taken to a hospital. The release said a confrontation occurred between occupants of a gray or silver sedan on the bridge and a protester. The suspect got out of the vehicle and fired multiple times, injuring the victim.
 CNN: Thousand take to the streets to protest Trump win
They chanted anti-Donald Trump slogans. They flooded city streets. They gathered near the White House, disheartened and dismayed.
"Not my President, not today," many across the nation yelled.
In cities from Boston to Los Angeles, thousands of demonstrators gathered Wednesday night in protest of election results that mean the billionaire real estate developer will be the next president.
As many as 5,000 people were at a protest in New York, police estimated. Among the issues being yelled about outside Trump Tower were immigration and other controversial topics from the campaign.
 Campus Reform: 'Anxious' and 'Fearful' students demand day off to cry about Trump
College students at several schools have started petitions urging their universities and professors to cancel classes in the wake of Donald Trump’s electoral victory, citing “emotional distress.”
  • Loyola University petition to cancel classes has 298 supporters.
“Loyola students are exhausted and exasperated from this election and no one wants to go to class,” the petition explains. “The only cure to an election hangover is drinking a cold beer in bed...all day.”
“Some people are literally scared for their lives.”
“i don't think i can emotionally handle classes tomorrow with what I'm seeing,” another signee wrote.
“Last night I cried until I vomited,” a Loyola student claimed. “I don't even remember falling asleep, but I must have passed out from hyperventilation. I woke up with my eyes nearly swolen [sic] shut. My body is sore. My mind is numb.”
  • Bryn Mawr College petition has 348 signatures, urging college president Cassidy to cancel classes so that students may “mourn” Trump’s victory.
“We need a day to heal after we've been told the country doesn't value our existence at all,” whined one student.
Signers of both petitions suggested that a Trump presidency also threatens their physical well-being, alleging safety concerns for minority groups on campus.

  • Johns Hopkins University petition 155 students.  The college's president Ron Daniels maintains that students need time off from class in order to confront “emotional distress,” explaining that they are “anxious and fearful for the future” due to Trump’s election, which they add “will not be easy for a lot of people and families.”
“The future is at stake and we're stuck with the very scary possibility Donald Trump will be president,” the petition states. “So all in favor of asking President Daniels for a day off tomorrow let your voice be heard because unfortunately it's not being heard in this election.”
According to Breitbart, is behind the protests: America on Edge: MoveOn Organizes Anti-Trump Protests Around Country
“This is a disaster. We fought our hearts out to avert this reality. But now it’s here,” staff wrote to members on Wednesday. “The new president-elect and many of his most prominent supporters have targeted, demeaned, and threatened millions of us—and millions of our friends, family, and loved ones. Both chambers of Congress remain in Republican hands. We are entering an era of profound and unprecedented challenge, a time of danger for our communities and our country. In this moment, we have to take care of ourselves, our families, and our friends—especially those of us who are on the front lines facing hate, including Latinos, women, immigrants, refugees, Black people, Muslims, LGBT Americans, and so many others. And we need to make it clear that we will continue to stand together.”
The temper-tantrum sickness of the snowflakes on the liberal left, be they foolish kids who have bought into the deceptive propaganda, or persons who have really bought into the disease of socialism, hasn't stopped at mere protests.  In Louisiana a Muslim woman falsely accused Trump supporters of robbing her.  The 18 year old liar, when she filed the report, said it happened near the University of Louisiana.  She stated that two white men drove up in a gray sedan, shouted racial slurs at her and proceeded to steal her wallet and Muslim headscarf.

The media and ACLU leaped all over the story, accusing Trump of being at fault because of his rhetoric that the leftists claim is Islamophobic. Hours after the report and leftist freak-out, investigators closed the case because the woman had “admitted that she fabricated the story.”  4-WWL Television reports she’s been charged with filing a false police report.

A CNN reporter was caught using one of the network’s former cameramen to pose as a disgruntled Hillary Clinton supporter.

An image went viral online that purported to show KKK members in North Carolina celebrating Donald Trump’s victory.  Even the ultra-liberal Snopes reports that to be a hoax.  The persons in the image are actually conservatives carrying American and Christian flags. The KKK themselves have confirmed they were not at that location.

Another report by the leftist media revealed a Nazi flag that went up at a home in San Francisco.  The man’s neighbors freaked out and assumed he was a Trump supporter gone haywire.  It turns out the owner of the home and the Nazi Flag is a Hillary Clinton supporter who thought raising a Nazi flag on his house would be a good way to protest Donald Trump’s win.

All that story shows you is how dumb some people can truly be.  Sometimes, I wonder if the gene pool might need a good shot of chlorine.

Why would these leftists react in such a way to the election of a person who opposes their ideology?  We didn't see conservatives go that kind of nutty haywire in 2008 or 2012.

Remember, also, that the accusation in this election is that Trump primarily attracted white "uneducated" persons.

Uneducated?  As in no college degree?  That isn't necessarily a bad thing.  Those are just people who haven't been indoctrinated by the leftist agenda through an onslaught of brainwashing programs and teachers who control academia.  Heck, most people say I come across like I have a masters degree, but I only have about thirty or so units from a community college.  Taking care of my family took precedence over going to school.  As for my prowess regarding history and the U.S. Constitution, I'm self-taught.

Barack Obama has even participated in creating the "all Republicans are evil" mantra, and the "Trump is dangerous" narrative.  In 2011, at a White House Correspondents dinner, Seth Meyers and Obama had a conversation about Trump where video picked up the pair joking about what they thought to be the laughable idea that Trump may decide to run for President.  Obama mocked Trump, saying that he was glad Trump had rejected the birther conspiracy so he could get back to real issues that matter, such as “did we fake the moon landing,” “what really happened in Roswell,” and “where are Biggie and Tupac?”

He also made fun of Trump’s “credentials and birth of experience,” jokingly citing his firing of Gary Busey on Celebrity Apprentice as an example of his leadership qualities.

The Associated Press is now reporting that poor old Obama, on his final foreign tour, has the unenviable task of finding a way to explain Trump to the foreign dignitaries he'll be visiting, who are horrified at the possibility of a Trump presidency.

The AP article begins: "It was supposed to be his grand valedictory tour. Now President Barack Obama must use his last major trip abroad to try to calm shocked world leaders about the outcome of the U.S. election, and what comes next when Donald Trump is president.  Trump's unforeseen victory has triggered pangs of uncertainty at home and grave concerns around the world. Though Obama has urged unity and said the U.S. must root for Trump's success, his trip to Greece, Germany and Peru forces him to confront global concerns about the future of America's leadership."

It's like they are saying that poor big people adult Obama will have to explain to his buds on the other side of the pond how they will have to deal with an unruly child that is nothing more than a temporary pain in the butt and will likely be dispatched in 2020 by the next great Democrat messiah.

Could you imagine if supporters of the GOP acted in any manner close to this madness in 2008 or 2012?  The media would have been all over it as immature, childish, and undemocratic.  We know how it is.  Democrats live by a separate set of rules.  The ends justify the means.  Nothing is out of bounds if it advances the socialism of the Democrats.

Or, as Karl Marx remarked, "The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism."
