No doubt you’ve all seen the countless anti-Trump protests/riots that have erupted across the country. More specifically, you’ve likely seen or heard about the most riotous one of all, the “protest” in Portland, OR, which made it into Dave Chappelle’s SNL monologue and is now in its fifth straight day of making thousands of NPR listeners late to work.
To the credit of Trump supporters, if the tables were turned and Hillary won, they would probably just stockpile a bunch of guns and doomsday shit, then go hide out quietly in a bunker somewhere. Like decent folk.
So you have a bunch of whiny, left-wing hipsters flooding the freeway, blocking traffic, smashing storefronts, quarantining the best bars, and generally making life irritating in one of the most pro-Hillary cities in the country. But maybe it’s understandable why the Portland protesters are so upset. These are some of the strongest Hillary supporters in the nation. They did everything in their power to make sure the man they believe is a racist, misogynist, tyrannical maniac would not take office, and now that their Herculean efforts to keep Trump out of the White House have failed, they have no choice but to embrace vigilante justice and destroy a bunch of artisanal tea shops, like our Founding Fathers long ago.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA just kidding most of them didn’t even vote.
More than half of the anti-Trump protesters arrested in Portland didn’t vote in Oregon, according to state election records.
At least sixty-nine arrested demonstrators either didn’t turn in a ballot or weren’t registered to vote in the state.
Are you kidding me? I’ve been on Facebook over the past week. I, like you, am well aware of how unbelievably, unusually stupid people have been this year, but good God.
I can’t imagine this trend is isolated to Portland, either.
Listen. I’m going to say this as clearly as I can: IF YOU COULD VOTE, BUT DID NOT VOTE, YOUR COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE ELECTION ARE WORTHLESS BULLSHIT.
Go the fuck home guys. You can try again in four years. Hopefully you’ve learned something by then.
