The Hills Are Alive With…Protests

If you have been a smart person and avoided the MSM with a passion then you may not know about all the protests these days.  (That was a joke)

But if you are a person such as myself and the affairs of the nation and world are important then you are well aware of them….especially if you read any bloggers….it has been non-stop bitching and whining every sense the inauguration….and some blogs that is all they have had for about a month now.

My take on this concern is really nothing more than people venting…but some Conservs have a point…..and that point is…where was all this concern and protests when Obama was in office…..I mean after all he deported more people than his predecessors….and yet there was very little protests in the streets…..and now everyone seems to be going batcrap crazy…..

Unz Review, a typical Libertarian slant on the news, has covered this situation……

The election of Donald Trump has sent millions of people pouring out onto the streets to protest a man they think is a racist, misogynist, xenophobic bully who will destroy US democracy in his quest to establish himself as supreme fascist ruler of the country.

Maybe they’re right. Maybe Trump is a fascist who will destroy America. But where were these people when Obama was bombing wedding parties in Kandahar, or training jihadist militants to fight in Syria, or abetting NATO’s destructive onslaught on Libya, or plunging Ukraine into fratricidal warfare, or collecting the phone records of innocent Americans, or deporting hundreds of thousands of undocumented workers, or force-feeding prisoners at Gitmo, or providing bombs and aircraft to the Saudis to continue their genocidal war against Yemen?

I am not against protests…Hell I spent a few days in jail in the past because of my involvement with protests….but if one is going to protest an issue then it should not be because it is en vogue but rather ….RIGHT….

  1. Excellent point. Protest must be based on principles, not personalities of popularity. Thanks to the Sanders campaign, more people are aware that our political system is flawed. The Trump Presidency has shocked people into action. Let’s hope the spirit of dissent continues to philosophically mature — and that the protests grow in number and strength.

  2. The anti-Trump protesters are the same as the anti-Brexit protesters here. They never bothered to do anything until they lost a vote. Losing that vote finally got them off of their sofas. if they had got off them before, they wouldn’t have lost in the first place.
    Bad losers are the same the world over. If you don’t work against something before it happens, there’s no point crying when you don’t win.
    Regards, Pete.
