Civil unrest and protest after the election

Civil unrest after the elections was predicted

And here just a few hours later....

I dislike the Schadenfreude and tone of Info Wars but I am sure they have the facts right.

If it had been Clinton that “won” the election the violence from Trump supporters would, I am sure have been even greater.


I don’t regard Trump as being responsible. He is but a symbol or an actor in an impersonal process of political and social collapse that began a long time ago.

HILLARY SUPPORTERS BURN AMERICAN FLAG, RIOT, THREATEN TO KILL TRUMP AFTER LOSING ELECTION
Death threats against president-elect explode on social media

Hillary Supporters Burn American Flag, Riot, Threaten to Kill Trump After Losing Election

*********************


A protestor was struck by a vehicle on the eastbound lanes of Highway 24 although it was not immediately clear what the extent of the victim’s injuries were,” reports Fox 5.

Students also hit the streets of Eugene and Portland, Oregon to protest against a democratic election. Demonstrators could be heard chanting “bitch” and “f*ck Trump” as they marched in unison.

Some of the students burned a U.S. Flag.


The irony of the riots is that many pro-Clinton media outlets previously circulated the talking point that Trump supporters would be likely to stage violent unrest after they lost the election.

Twitter was also inundated with death threats, with leftists either hoping for or personally expressing their willingness to carry out Trump’s assassination.

Protests have already sparked in the area, beginning Wednesday afternoon.

Columbus Circle. Now.





Demonstrations began in cities across the US early Wednesday morning, within hours of the announcement that Trump has pulled off a surprise win in the Electoral College.






There have also been school walkouts and protests at colleges and high schools throughout the country. One California high school walkout on Wednesday saw roughy 1,500 students chanting "Si se puede!" (Yes we can!) and waving Mexican flags.

Donald Trump wins White House: Protests flare in Oakland



Hours after Donald Trump became president-elect, spontaneous protests erupted early Wednesday in Oakland as demonstrators sought to block freeways in the city.

A protestor was struck by a vehicle on the eastbound lanes of Highway 24 although it was not immediately clear what the extent of the victim’s injuries were.

Up to 100 people were said to have gathered in downtown Oakland to protest the results. Many spectators had gathered on Telegraph Avenue and continue to march. BART has shut down the 12th street station in downtown Oakland as a result.

We are hearing reports of broken windows and cars on fire.

Walking with protesters against Trump on Congress

AUSTIN - A large anti-Donald Trump protest that began at the University of Texas campus is making its way through Downtown Austin Wednesday.

Protesters temporarily blocked the First Street bridge before moving east on West Riverside then back up Congress Avenue towards the Capitol.

The protest reached Capitol grounds then walked back to UT campus.

The protest has remained peaceful, APD said. Several APD vehicles are following the protesters.

APD Chief Art Acevedo was walking with the crowd.

"We disrupt traffic for all kinds of stuff, festivals, races, everything else," Acevedo said. "I apologize ahead of time, but I'd rather have these young people exercise their rights peacefully."

"I don't want to speak for the group, but I'd say their message is they're not happy," Acevedo said.

In his first address as President-elect after a bitter campaign, Trump struck a unifying tone in front of crowds cheering “USA, USA”.

He said it was “time for America to bind the wounds of division”.

But Donald Trump’s presidential victory set off protests by hundreds of people on California college campuses and in Oregon.

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.
