Default It's Beginning: Violent Protests Outside "DeploraBall"

VIDEO: Anti-Trump Protesters Get Violent with Police at 'DeploraBall' Event



Cops have repelled protestors with pepper spray for the moment.

We need to accept that they are smarter than us.

They have figured out that if you burn a flag or flip a car or throw stuff at the cops, Trump CANNOT become president.



I'm looking forward to the "Biker Brawl on the Mall" actually.

Isn't the DeploraBall the right wing nut jobs that are part of the Klan? I think they call themselves the alt-right?

That's what I've read as well. If that's the case, I don't have much of a problem with people protesting. Here's a tidbit from an article in the Boston Globe talking about Richard Spencer, head of the National Policy Institute:

Quote:
Spencer drew national attention in November, soon after Trump’s election, when he greeted attendees at the National Policy Institute’s annual conference in Washington by pronouncing, “Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!” The crowd broke out into cheers and many performed Nazi salutes, as caught on video by The Atlantic.

This behavior is a little too close to Nazi Germany for my taste. Making our country a more equitable place for everyone is one thing, but there are some white supremacist nutjobs that the party can do without.

Sounds like these jackwagons took things too far.
1000%

If these geniuses knew anything about the "fascism" that they are protesting, they'd know that if this administration were truly fascist, they would all be in jail or dead by now. There would be no protests.

I watched the videos though...overall a pretty lame protest IMHO.

Same can be said for the left in thier hiring of people who then went out and attacked Pubs.

It's been going on for over ten years and it's time to end. Peaceful protest is a right of all American citizens.

Violent protests and riots are not and must be met with overwhelming force.
