News outlets that warned of violent riots from Donald Trump supporters if Hillary Clinton won the White House are now all but lauding the people “protesting” his victory.

The New York Times was reporting on the potential for a literal “revolution” attempt by Trump supporters if Clinton won the White House about a week before the election. “The crowds appeared on edge and quick to lash out,” the story read.

Now the crowds that are actually lashing out are Clinton supporters. “Thousands of people across the country marched, shut down highways, burned effigies and shouted angry slogans on Wednesday night to protest the election of Donald J. Trump as president,” reports The New York Times.

The scenes are something like the cover of The Week published in late October warning of the danger of riots over Clinton loss, if you nix the “Make America Great Again” hat, replace the Trump slogans with signs that read “Fuck Trump,” and insert someone burning the American flag.

 Now the magazine is running a blurb on the protests by Clinton supporters. No mention of fright there. A week ahead of the election, The Washington Post featured a little-known militia group called the Oath Keepers in its coverage of the dangers of a Trump loss. “Race riots, terrorist attacks and martial law: Oath Keepers warn of post-election chaos,” the headline blared. The reporter didn’t hesitate to explicitly tie the group to Trump, although the group identifies as non-partisan.

“The only thing Americans can expect on Election Day, the speakers repeatedly emphasized, is the unexpected,” reported The Washington Post, along with a long list of scary quotes from the group.

Clinton supporters across the country have been reported beating up white people, burning American flags, vandalizing private property, threatening to assassinate Trump, and shouting violent slogans such as “Die Whites Die” and “Kill Trump.”

  1. Are protections are being offered to the Electors in the Electoral College from threats to persuade a change to Hillary vote?

  2. It’s the same old hypocritical left. It’s great to have Black Lives Matter burn, riot, destroy property and murder LEO’s in cold calculated murder. It’s great for our K-12, colleges, and universities to be centers for left socialist indoctrination. It’s great to have snowflake youth burning the streets of their own epicenters of hate. However; if you are a rancher concerned about government overreach on public land, then you are murdered in daylight, on a public road; video included.

    No consequence for crimes providing in meets the left’s agenda.

  3. Seems to me that those that SERVE WITHIN our governments – elected, hired, contracted, etc have forgotten that they are put into the position – elected, hired, contracted, etc – to carry out the duties written down in, and assigned by, the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution. Those that serve think that “they are”/”or are trying to be” the government when our legitimate government are documents not people, agencies, groups, military, etc.

    Thomas Jefferson: “The government created by this compact (the Constitution) was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party (the people of each state) has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.”

    James Madison, Federalist 39: “Each State, in ratifying the Constitution, is considered as a sovereign body, independent of all others, and only to be bound by its own voluntary act. In this relation, then, the new Constitution will, if established, be a FEDERAL, and not a NATIONAL constitution.” (It was established.)

    Benjamin Franklin: “In free governments the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors and sovereigns. For the former, therefore, to return among the latter was not to degrade but to promote them.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “It would be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights; that confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism; free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy, and not confidence, which prescribes limited constitutions to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power; that our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no farther, our confidence may go…. In questions of power, let no more be said of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

    St. George Tucker: “The Federal Government is the creature of the States. It is not a party to the Constitution, but the result of it – the creation of that agreement which was made by the States as parties. It is a mere agent, entrusted with limited powers for certain objects; which powers and objects are enumerated in the Constitution. Shall the agent be permitted to judge of the extent of his own powers, without reference to his constituent?” (Justice of the Virginia Supreme Court, in his edition of ‘Blackstone’s Commentaries On The Law’ (1803))

    Having people, agencies, groups, etc as rulers is what this nation broke away from. That is why there is no allegiance and/or loyalty owed to any person who serves in any position, but it is owed to, and demanded from in the form of an Oath, the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution. Those that serve within any governmental position get their LAWFUL authority from the US Constitution and/or from the state Constitution in which they serve. They are required to be Oath bound to the US Constitution as a condition of their employment – elected, hired, contracted, etc – to take and KEEP the Oath, and to do the duties as assigned to the branch or position they occupy.

    J. Reuben Clark: “God provided that in this land of liberty, our political allegiance shall run not to individuals, that is, to government officials, no matter how great or how small they may be. Under His plan our allegiance and the only allegiance we owe as citizens or denizens of the United States, runs to our inspired Constitution which God himself set up. So runs the oath of office of those who participate in government. A certain loyalty we do owe to the office which a man holds, but even here we owe just by reason of our citizenship, no loyalty to the man himself. In other countries it is to the individual that allegiance runs. This principle of allegiance to the Constitution is basic to our freedom. It is one of the great principles that distinguishes this “land of liberty” from other countries”.

    If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

    Chief Tecumseh: “When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”
