My first thought: In all aspects of life, I have often thought it was wise to judge people by their actions, not their words. Words are empty without action, right?
My second thought: Are you willing to use violence to push your ideology? Would you support or follow those that do?
Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. A public ceremony was held on Friday, January 20, 2017, which was a peaceful gathering of Trump supporters celebrating the political success.
Unfortunately, this peaceful gathering was disrupted by “protests”. People chanting hateful words, hitting things with hammers, throwing rocks, smashing and stealing property and setting fire to things… Is this really a “protest”?
Mike Cernovich, a well-known YouTube supporter of Trump was planning to throw a private celebration, a black tie ball. Unfortunately, his venue pulled out due to threats of violence. James O’Keefe from Project Veritas was able to infiltrate the activist group responsible for the threats and successfully exposed their plans to release noxious gas into the ventilation system at the National Press Club. Other plans of this activist organisation were to rush the ball and throat punch attendee’s in order to paralyse them, and to chain DC subway trains in order to disrupt the inauguration.
Milo Yiannopoulos, a well-known Breitbart editor and Trump supporter was conducting a speech on freedom at the University of Washington. Those attempting to attend were assaulted with paint bombs and bricks. One high school kid was there with his dad and was swarmed and beaten. Another man was critically shot in the abdomen by a protestor, though thank-fully it was not fatal. Milo was removed by security, and the audience was told to remove their Trump hats and escape the venue via an underground parking lot to escape the mob.
Its interesting – Milo is Jewish. Once upon a time, Jew’s were targeted for what they wore too…
Many famous people on Twitter are comparing Trump’s inauguration to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor. One reporter even publicly posted that “Baron will be America’s first home-schooled shooter”. If you don’t know, Baron is Trump’s 10 year old son. What is she saying? That Baron will gun down his family? What. On. Earth. Are. These. People. Thinking.
The mainstream media, with their high salaries and air conditioned offices, are quite happy to rile things up by saying “Set your clocks back 300 years!”. They are laughing while these indoctrinated, easily influenced (often young) people are out there participating in violent protests. Many of these kids will end up getting a criminal record, which hinders their chance at successfully gaining employment (which is one of the things they are protesting against!) Hundreds have been arrested in Washington. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-01-21/washington-protests-turn-violent-as-trump-assumes-presidency/8199916
Lauren Southern, a Canadian libertarian activist was physically assaulted.
Gavin McInness, another Canadian writer, actor, comedian and political activist managed to get into a fist fight.
Roger Stone, former Trump advisor, claims he was poisoned.
Richard Spencer was sucker punched while giving an interview.
Many other Trump supporters were beaten as well. Here’s one example;
Are these really examples of “protests”?
Ah, the tolerant left.
“I want diversity but anyone who disagree’s with me is Hitler!”
“Love trumps hate”
“When they go low, we go high”
“How did we let hate win”
These are slogans chanted and posted on signs by protestors, while they smash, steal, hit and set property ablaze.
The left is interesting isn’t it? They hate racism, but attack any black conservative as if they are not really black. “All black people have to be democrats, but don’t anyone dare stereotype them!”
They hate sexism – but try being a female conservative! Read what the left had to say about Phyllis Schlafly after she died. Read what they say about Ann Coulter. Read what they say about Sarah Palin. Bill Maher certainly had a lot to say, mostly 4 letter words starting with C.
Political ideology continues to be a strong predictor of violent tendencies. Leftists always tend to be more violent. I get it, “hurt people hurt people”, but we still need to judge people by their actions, and the left – these… protestors… have very different words and actions.
Be good to yourself,
