I’ve followed the 2016 Presidential election since almost the beginning and this is my brutally honest opinion on the anti-Trump protesters (sometimes rioters). I’m not sure how staging mass protest AFTER an election is going to accomplish anything. It seems that such demonstrations would’ve been much productive beforehand but okay…
I’ve been seeing these statements as of late from social justice warriors who are painting an overly simplistic picture. Saying this Trump victory is ultimately thanks to the alt-right’s bigotry and nothing else. Umm no there’s plenty of blame to pass around, such as the mass voter suppression by the DNC. Plus, there were many Hillary supporters who absolutely refused to listen to reason when pointing this all out. We warned that the wrong candidate was being backed and there might be a backlash later on. Many seemed obsessed in wanting a woman elected as president, regardless of the individual’s track record.
Unfortunately, it looks like our fears were correct thanks to this unusual poll that saw the warning signs in advance. Up to 40% registered Democrats decided to go for Trump and many of which were women! So it wasn’t just bigoted right-wing voters, the left managed to do a good job at alienating themselves from many ordinary hardworking Democrats.
