Anti-Trump Protest

0 229

While most Maryland residents were at home enjoying their Fourth of July celebrations, vandals snuck into Wood Acres Elementary to deface a school sign to display the message, “EW, TRUMP! MURDER HIS A**”.  The placement and shocking nature of the threat has caused anger in the close-knit Bethesda community, said Andrew Johnson the local resident who spotted and took down the message

“It wouldn’t have mattered if it was Trump, Obama, Clinton, Bush. It was a threat and you know it.”

This is just the latest in a long line of violent attacks and statements made against the President and GOP.  This rhetoric recently culminated in the June 14th shooting of a Republican congressional baseball team, victims of which included House majority whip Steve Scalise.

With the country speaking overwhelmingly against establishment Democrats in the last election is it any wonder now, that instead of focusing on the many problems facing their party, liberals are directing their anger at those chosen to lead?

It’s all over the media anywhere you look. From Kathy Griffin’s vile attempt at courting controversy, shown holding a severed head, to Madonna claiming she’s though about “blowing up the White House” mainstream media sources that are quick to start an uproar at Trump’s latest tweets are surprisingly silent when it comes to this behavior.

Statistics published in a recent Pew Research Center study shows that 4 in 10 Democrats and Republicans see the other party as an active threat to the country. It just goes to show that we’re finding ourselves living in an increasingly divided country split along partisan lines.  Where serious threats become glib buzzwords and echo chambers appear ready to permit even the worst behavior.

Even without calls to violence the dumbing down of mainstream discourse in the country is a sad indictment on how far we need to go to regain our lost values and ideals. In fact Journalistic standards have fallen so far that an annual 2016 Gallup Poll showed only 32 percent of Americans having a great or fair amount of trust in the media.

While many of us retain faith in the people of this great country to see our way clear of this impasse, we pray that further incidents are not needed to stop these efforts at fracturing us further.

"Hello, fellow citizens, I am here to calmly discuss how to preserve the Founder's vision of a Constitutional Republic"

On Saturday, Fox News correspondent pro said that congressmen should now consider changing the way they have been campaigning and interacting with their constituents, by halting town hall meetings, at least temporarily.

Rivera spoke about the political climate of the country, which seems to be quite dangerous and heated, especially following the attack on Republican congressmen at a baseball practice in Virginia. The shooting injured five people, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who continues fighting for his life at the Medstar Washington Medical Center. Rivera discussed his views on the show “Fox and Friends” on Fox News.

“I think Congress has to rethink these town hall meetings right now,” Rivera told the “Fox and Friends” hosts. “Unless they get the kind of security you get at an airport, with Gabby Giffords and now what happened with Steve Scalise, I think you’ve really got to understand that there is a kind of an urgent, aberrant, emotional involvement now, and for right now, we’ve got to cool it. We’ve got to be hyper-aware that our elected officials are vulnerable.”

The show’s co-host Pete Hegseth also asked Rivera whether he thought town hall meetings, which have been a part of the American political process, are an important part of campaigning and the democratic system, and whether it is much more important for the Democrats and the progressives to tone down the harsh rhetoric they have adopted against the Republicans and conservatives in general.

“I think those are lovely thoughts, Steve,” Rivera said. “But I think it’s gone too far. Now, you have a special counsel. Now, you almost have a shadow government. Now, you have [special counsel Robert] Mueller, with enormous power, enormous responsibility. He’s going to be looking, you know, in some ways — and I in no means mean to denigrate his moral character — but he’s going to be looking to justify his role. He’s going to go six ways to Sunday; it’s going to be like the old Whitewater investigation … I think that it’s really very, very serious and unsettling times, and there’s going to be great frustration on both sides — the extremists on both sides, with easy access to these killing weapons, assault rifles and so forth.”

Town hall meetings usually involve Congress members meeting and answering questions from the general public in their congressional districts. However, these meetings have become quite heated in recent months, especially for Republicans and conservatives, who are finding it increasingly difficult to defend policies that seem to be unpopular to liberals.

It is to be noted that Rivera isn’t the only person who has asked for town hall meetings to be suspended following the recent attack. Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Lou Barletta said on Thursday that he believes town hall meetings should be suspended for the time being.

“I’ve been at the end of some of those town halls where the police had to carry people out and I get concerned not only for your own safety, but for the safety of the people who are there, who actually come to be heard and even if you have an opposing opinion, that’s great,” Barletta said on a radio show.

“These town halls I believe have just become targets for people to incite other people, and it’s not good,” Barletta added.

protest

An Arizona State University professor offered her Global Politics of Human Rights class a choice for the end of the semester final: undertake a group project or take an exam. Obviously, the group project option won overwhelmingly.

However, what the project entailed was more surprising than the students’ choice to do it in the first place. The group project was a protest against the policies of President Donald Trump on the university campus in Tempe, Arizona.

“The class decided that as a group project they wanted to make their voices heard about the issues that are affecting them today, so instead of just reading about the human-rights violations, they’d speak out about the current violations that are happening,” Professor Angeles Maldonado told the Arizona Republic. She further added that she believed it to be her duty to support her students’ decision.

Around 20 students created signs and cards and stood in a single near the library of the university, making what some might call, a human wall. Other students at the ASU were quick to join the protest, picking up more signs that displayed the slogan, “wall against hate!”

“This was something that we all got together and said we would express some of the things we don’t like, so a lot of the other people here are protesting things like immigration, immigration ban, women’s rights, things like that,” Alex Corella, a student in Maldonado’s class said.

Other issues that were highlighted by the protest included women’s rights, LGBT rights, Black Lives Matter, immigration policies and the prison system.

“I’ve been going out to a lot of protests lately to show the administration that we don’t approve of them and to show the people in our community that there are people who support them,” said Maria Pakulis, a student of female gender studies, who joined the protest even though she isn’t in Maldonado’s class.

However, not all things went as smooth during the project.

College staff requested the students to protest somewhere sidewalk traffic would not get hindered, since the students stood about a foot apart, increasing the length of the human wall and making it difficult for pedestrians to get through.

Campus police eventually had to intervene and the protesting students had to drop their signs and link up arms, which made it all the more difficult for pedestrians to get past the. Police then warned Maldonado and pedestrians were finally given enough room to walk.

George Gallo is a comedian who had a special message for the protestors, but they didn’t like it. See the liberal crybabies freak out.

Comedian George Gallo took to the streets of New York to join the anti-Trump protestors, but he wasn’t there to object to a fair and democratic election.

Gallo wanted to tell the crybabies that they were “sore losers” and they needed to shut the “F” up.

Needless to say, some of the angry protestors got even angrier with Glallo and it is hilarious to watch.

WARNING EXPLICIT LANGUAGE

We have seen many videos of the protestors, but George does a good job of triggering the people protesting a fair democratic election.

They are so quick to get in the face of anyone that disagrees and try to yell them down. George isn’t one that can be yelled down though. He isn’t afraid.

Some of his other videos online include a laugh out loud video where George walks around New York and stops all the “celebrities” that he finds.

Right now in America, we have to find ways to laugh and laugh at ourselves. There are not to many conservative voices in the world of comedy and entertainment, but Gallo gives us hope.

It doesn’t matter if he is calling out crybaby liberals or posting videos where he meets “celebrities” on the sidewalk, Gallo is one of a few conservative comedians that deserves our support.
