Election 2016, The Left, and Losing with Dignity…or Not
Editor’s Note: So many of us who voted for Trump, who were vehemently opposed to Hillary Clinton, the Grand Dame of Corruption and Prevarication, have been appalled at the absolute meltdown on the Left. Sure their candidate lost, but is that a reason for outbursts of violent and obscene anarchy? Does losing give Lefty pundits the licence to whine and opine with untrue, fear-mongering hyperbole? And if the shoe was on the other foot? Conservatives would not be cussing and destroying property. We might be writing op-eds at the speed of light, writing what elected officials we do have, maybe holding up candles and signs, maybe praying en masse. But we sure as shootin’ would not be acting like overgrown spoiled rotten brats. Read on. Tami Jackson

As I sit this evening and scroll through the news, I can’t help but notice the massive protests that are going on “in response” to the election of Donald Trump. I don’t know why I am shocked or surprised, but I was. Actually, I was pretty damn angry and appalled.
First, I have heard a lot of “Leaders” on the left and celebrities saying “I am disappointed in my country” or “RIP, America” and other statements alluding to the belief that Donald Trump will somehow destroy this country. I have zero issue with this, actually. I find it funny. It is their free speech, and their chance to make themselves look foolish. Hey, if I had a dollar every time I looked foolish, I would have a yacht!
The issue I have is with the obvious and continuous race baiting that I see being perpetuated via social media, SOME Political leaders and so called “Mainstream Media” itself. And with pundits and commentators who have somehow excused the Left for nominating Hillary, one of the most untrustworthy and embattled candidates ever, and make the election about whites hating everyone else.
My case in point is Van Jones on CNN from Election Night:
Just as a reminder, Van Jones is a close friend of President Obama and the former “Green Energy Czar” who now commentates as a political pundit (Democratic mouthpiece) for CNN. Van Jones has been a professional race baiter for years and never misses an opportunity to use race as the reason for, well, anything he doesn’t think went the way he wanted it.
Also, fueling the flames of hate, is our good friends over at “Moveon.org” who, the day after our country exercised one of its greatest freedoms and elected a new president, decided to release this email and social media blast
“MoveOn.org released the following press release Wednesday afternoon:
Americans to Come Together in Hundreds Peaceful Gatherings of Solidarity, Resistance, and Resolve Following Election Results
Hundreds of Americans, dozens of organizations to gather peacefully outside the White House and in cities and towns nationwide to take a continued stand against misogyny, racism, Islamophobia, and xenophobia.
Tonight, thousands of Americans will come together at hundreds of peaceful gatherings in cities and towns across the nation, including outside the White House, following the results of Tuesday’s presidential election.
The gatherings – organized by MoveOn.org and allies – will affirm a continued rejection of Donald Trump’s bigotry, xenophobia, Islamophobia, and misogyny and demonstrate our resolve to fight together for the America we still believe is possible.
Within two hours of the call-to-action, MoveOn members had created more than 200 gatherings nationwide, with the number continuing to grow on Wednesday afternoon.
WHAT: Hundreds of peaceful gatherings of solidarity, resistance, and resolve nationwide
WHEN / WHERE: Find local gatherings here. Major gatherings include in New York City’s Columbus Circle and outside the White House in Washington, DC.
RSVP: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm attendance.”
It is funny, for the life of me I can not find that same call for “Solidarity, Resistance and Resolve” following the 2008 and 2012 elections. Perhaps my search engine isn’t working as well as it should. Luckily, we are a mature country who respects the process and would never protest or destroy other people’s property because we didn’t get our way, right?
Damn, I was wrong. Perhaps there is an element in this country who are easily led by others, who are more interested in inciting hate and fury at any cost. They do, however, in the vitriol, fail to point out that every person who voted for Donald Trump was not white, or rich, or gun toting, or looking forward to “The Purge”.
The purge you ask?
Yes, The Purge.
Somehow, people and chat rooms and social media are under the assumption that a President Trump will call for a Purge, based on the 2013 movie and 2016 sequel “the Purge” where there are no laws, rules, or emergency services for 12 hours. Essentially anything goes. That led to the bizarre and twisted belief that “The Purge” will be enacted by President Trump and will somehow be whites targeting minorities on behalf of President Trump. I wish I could make this stuff up, but I cannot. People believe this is coming.
You wonder why people are acting in such a reprehensible manner? Now you know. They are glued to “Main Stream Media” who are constantly telling them they are victims. You have so called “Civic Groups” who are telling them they are victims. Then, they go online to see if they are victims, and some asshat online confirms it. Not to mention the entire left champions and nominates a woman for president who has more issues than Mad Magazine, and more skeletons than a graveyard. As long as we don’t have a city official or other elected official doing the same we should be good, right?
Well, no. Meet Kshama Sawant, a Seattle City Councilwoman who was at the Anti-Free Election that We Lost (or something) protest in Seattle. Ms. Sawant is the “Socialist Alternative” member of the council. So you know she is cool. Ms. Sawant, while addressing a crowd of “victims,” urged them to attend the inauguration (of President Trump) and shut it down. Ah ha! The voice of reason now inspiring already confused people. By the way, interrupting a Presidential Inauguration is not only illegal, it is downright stupid!
So, there you go. That is how the some of The Left responded today.
In many ways, they responded like the petulant children we all have been saying they are. “I didn’t win! I didn’t get my trophy! I’m going home (after I race bait and destroy private property!)”
This, ladies and gentlemen is what happens when we live in a society of delusion, the society of Progressives and leftist globalists.
So much for “Losing With Dignity.”
