How come you don’t ever see Republican voters riot? I mean running-through-the-streets-breaking-stuff rioting? Seriously. Anyone? (Bueller?)
It seems just like yesterday that the driveby media and the I’m-with-Her crowd were tut-tutting and lecturing us about how undemocratic and improper it is to not accept the will of the people as expressed at the ballot box.
I have to admit. I was not happy about the presidential election results of 2008 and 2012. But not ONCE did I even think about throwing a public temper tantrum, running through the streets, or breaking someone else’s stuff.
Back to the present. What a difference a few weeks make! Not seeing a whole lot of accepting-the-results from the I’m-With-Her crowd. Let’s see, we’ve got arrests in Charlotte. (Maybe they were still protesting that whole police shooting thing from a few months back.) There was mayhem in Winston-Salem. Delicate snowflakes walked out of their classes at UNC-Chapel Hill. All hell broke lose in California, in Boston, Philadelphia, NYC, and Chicago. ‘Not our president,’ they were chanting.
I hear secession plans are being crafted in California. (Oh, yes. There IS a God.) I hope they’ll let us know how we can contribute to that worthy effort.
Ah. So THIS is what accepting-the-results of an election looks like. (Give them what they want, or they’re going to throw a fit and break your stuff.)
