It was heartening to see the spontaneous resistance spring up from Americans across the Nation against the election of Donald Trump. Never forget Trump lost the popular vote but won the election.
But, a message to all the protesters; Never forget that while right-wing domestic terrorism and violence is coddled and encouraged in this country (See the Two Bundy Insurrections and the repeated threats of assassination during all Trump rallies) agitation perceived to be coming from the left is never, ever tolerated. It won't be long before Faux News and conservatives begin calling on their allies in the FBI to put you down violently.
Sure enough beloved Right-Wing Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County, who just last month was encouraging conservatives to take to the streets with torches and pitchforks if Trump lost, is declaring these protests must be "quelled".
Expect more, louder, and increasingly angry calls from conservatives for the use of Violence by the State against the protesters.
