People who voted for Hillary Clinton are having a hard time accepting democracy, it seems.
Hundreds of Hillary supporters took to the streets of New Orleans Wednesday night to protest the election of Donald Trump as President. We should not be surprised that Hillary supporters riot because they didn’t get their way. We also shouldn’t be surprised at how the media reports it.
Like other protests around the country, the media has downplayed the violence and rhetoric seen during these riots. In New Orleans, local monuments were vandalized and local businesses suffered heavy damage. The media is also downplaying the involvement of career protester groups like Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street.
Hundreds showed up to denounce the election of Trump–but despite media reports of a peaceful gathering, the crowd grew increasingly hostile and violent, according to Breitbart Texas sources on the ground.
Students holding signs reading “End white supremacy” originally gathered on the steps of the Lee Circle monument before the demonstrations turned destructive.
Lee Circle was fully covered in graffiti with phrases like “Black Power” and “Dismantle White Supremacy”.
Later, an effigy of Trump was burned while glass windows at a nearby bank were shattered.
Other phrases like “No Trump, no KKK” were used to vandalize surrounding areas, as well as the threatening phrase “Die whites die” and “F*ck Trump”.
Protests continue around the nation. Just consider, however: when Hillary supporters riot, that means the country is on the right track.
