While there are still questions about the outcome of the election, the truth is that President Donald Trump is still the president and he still has a lot of supporters. Those same supporters took to the streets of Washington, D.C. over the weekend to show their support.
Unsurprisingly, there were counter-protestors there. After all, it’s 2020. There’s always counter-protestors.
Also unsurprisingly, that resulted in clashes with the Trump supporters.
More than 20 people were arrested amid violent clashes between supporters of President Trump and counter-protesters following the “Million MAGA March” in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.
The march drew thousands of Trump supporters – even a brief cameo by the commander in chief himself – to the capital to back the president as he contests election results that favor President-elect Joe Biden.
In scenes captured on video, small groups of Trump supporters who attempted to enter the area around Black Lives Matter Plaza, about a block from the White House, were confronted by several hundred anti-Trump demonstrators who had gathered there.
Trump supporters who approached the area were harassed, doused with water, and saw their MAGA hats and pro-Trump flags snatched and burned, while counter-protesters cheered.
Honestly, there’s a lot of video at the Fox News link, so I suggest you go and look.
Yes, Trump supporters were attacked for the sin of being Trump supporters. While Joe Biden can talk about unity all he wants, the truth is that there are a lot of people on the left who don’t want unity. They want vengeance.
Four years ago, I laughed at the meltdowns of the left. I didn’t vote for Trump, but he was by far preferable to Clinton, and the reaction from the left was hilarious.
But at no point did I want to see Clinton or Obama supporters punished.
Well, I guess that just means I’m a better person than many of our opponents. They want to hurt people for disagreeing with them. They want to destroy livelihoods. They want to punish everyone on the right for the sin of not agreeing with them.
Does anyone think that’s going to just go away? Even if it turns out that Joe Biden is indeed the winner, this isn’t going to disappear. These aren’t the actions of people who are going to win gracefully.
No, these are the kind of actions that eventually lead to civil war.
Especially since Biden can’t be bothered to condemn these kinds of acts. As of this writing, there’s absolutely no mention of these skirmishes on his Twitter feed, nor do I expect them.
His calls for unity were really calls for the right to sit down, shut up, and do what they’re told. Biden doesn’t care about whether people attack his political opponents or not.
Is it any wonder so many people bought guns leading up to the election? Is it any wonder that the buying surge will continue indefinitely should the questions be settled with him as the winner?
Remember that these people don’t disagree with you. They hate you. They want to hurt you and make your life miserable. They will physically hurt you if they get the chance.
Don’t give it to them.
