Somebody needs to protest the protestors
This idiot on CNN has become famous (sorry, can't figure out how to link the actual video--it's some kinda embedded thingie). Her money quote:
People on both sides are going to have to die
She's threatening to kill Trump voters? Is she accusing Trump voters of trying to kill her?
The man hasn't been sworn in yet. Nothing has even happened. We just had an election two days ago, when, p.s, none of these people were protesting in such massive numbers when it actually might've made a difference. Now it's over. Democrats lost. And to the public, all these protests reek of anti-democratic sore loserism. Three days ago Trump was a fascist for even suggesting he might not accept the results of the election, but now Democrats want to be seen as heroes for saying the same thing.
To be slightly fair, I think this ranting woman is worried about her family being split up if they get deported. Not clear if she was ranting when Obama was the one boasting about record-setting deportations, but whatever.
In any case, Trump hasn't done anything yet. So regular folks are just pretty mystified what the protestors are about.
Wait, it gets worse. Now, I realize media distorts protest reporting. But still, it looks like the protestors are attacking Trump for being racist, misogynistic, homophobic...you know, the exact same attacks that didn't work in the election two days ago. I'm hearing nothing about income inequality, globalism or elitism. Nothing about suggesting a Goldman Sachs banker to head up the Treasury Department. Nothing about proposing Sarah Palin for Interior. Nope. Just the same narrative we've been hearing: Trump's a racist, elected by racists.
I'm not here to defend Trump. I'm just saying: as long as liberalism/progressivism/Democrats are seen as all about identity politics, then Democrats will remain out of power. Permanently, if need be.
I want to see somebody protest a building that really, really needs protesting:
Seriously. Why isn't someone out there right now?
