Intense Demonstrations Break Out Across US Over Election, Dozens Arrested This behavior, while sanctioned by our Constitution, pinpoints the real deplorables or as lawyer and former NYC mayor called them "crybabies". When Obama was elected there weren't protests. White middle America has been hurt more by 8 years of Obama than by any other President. By the end of his first term, people should have seen what they were getting except no one could have guessed just how bad it would be. Whether from white guilt or dead-set on electing the first black prez (this was as inane as voting for Hillary just because she's female), voters were blinded. Obama performed numerous end-arounds Congress when they saw what his proposed legislation would do to this Country. So Obama shoved "his" laws through via extensive Executive Orders. Obama's lied at every opportunity to cover his actions. Gee, that reminds us of Hillary. When Obama was elected the rest of us had to suck it up and wait for these 8 interminable years to conclude.
Most protestors are from college campuses where the liberal agenda is pounded into students' heads and this is the result. At university, we didn't protest presidents and burn flags. These actions change nothing except make them look like spoiled brats when they're not taught how to lose. This absent skill set of being able to cope begins in grade school when kids are given trophies even when they lose. How will they function in the real world where wins and loses are encountered in daily life? Colleges and universities are encouraging this softness, an inability to dig deep. We need a little more of the Brit's "stiff upper lip" thing.
Check what some universities offered after the election: cry-in's at Cornell, arts and crafts at Tufts, Play-Doh and coloring books at the Univ. of Michigan, therapy dogs offered at the Univ. of Kansas, earning them the nickname of "snowflakes". Constitutional lawyer Johnathon Turley summed it this way:
"There was the same response after the Ferguson, Missouri protests and some faculty said you don't have to take tests or come to school. It misses the point. In college you learn a lot about being a citizen. The burning of the flag, these protests are really ignorant and hateful. That flag really speaks to rights, not results. You can't say you like the Democratic process, but only if it comes out your way. It's like saying I like going to baseball games, but only for the score.
What's being missed here with the students and I'm particularly concerned about law students is that we're sort of raising a generation of 'emotional hemophiliacs'. If legal or political things don't go your way and something upsets you, you sort of have a modern version of the vapors and that's not a good thing for us to support. If you feel anger, if you feel hurt, then it should be used as a motivation to learn more, to get out there, to do things."
Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt brought college kids' responses to Trump's election down to the basics: "These are the best 4 years. Go to a football game, go tailgate, drink some beer and deal with it."
You have to wonder if these protests were fomented by George Soros since he both funded Black Lives Matter and poured millions into state elections in hopes of altering the outcome. Former New York City mayor Bloomberg isn't much better.
Here are a few examples. If you Google "George Soros poured money into state elections" 4.9 million results appeared in less than 1 second.
If you don't like Trump make your voice heard with your ballot in 4 years. In the meantime, give the man a chance to make much needed REAL change for the better, not more hell-bent rushing toward globalism that benefits no one except elites, certainly not the average American.
