After the recent activity in the nation’s capital, the leftists are decrying the denial of the election results and what they claim were violent riots.
They have even accused the president of staging a coup… but I can remember four years ago very well.
The left touted the resistance and they began rioting the moment President Trump was elected and on Inauguration Day, they engaged in physical assaults.
They were backed to the hilt by the left, who when the riots failed, used a Hillary cooked up the dossier to try to undo Trump’s presidency from Day one with noted liars Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff going on TV and lying to an entire country, that they had seen positive proof of collusion between Trump and Russia.
That failed, and they turned their sights on impeachment on the basis of a nonexistent quid pro quo deal. The reality is that there was a quid pro quo deal with Ukraine but it was perpetrated by Quid Pro Quo Joe Biden. He would turn over $1 billion dollars to the government if they would fire the prosecutor investigating his son, Hunter.
In Los Angeles, protesters burned an effigy of Trump, blocked traffic on a busy highway, and vandalized property. In Oakland, rioters started fires, threw rocks and Molotov cocktails, and vandalized police cars. One police car was even graffitied with the message “Time to riot.”
Similar stories were reported in New York, Denver, San Francisco, and Philadelphia.
Did the left get over it? Did they ever accept the election? Nope. They promised to resist and the rioting didn’t stop.
They even rioted during Trump’s inauguration.
According to news reports, six police officers were injured, and over two hundred rioters were arrested. Here’s how CNN covered the news.
Six police officers were injured and 217 protesters arrested Friday after a morning of peaceful protests and coordinated disruptions of Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony gave way to ugly street clashes in downtown Washington.
At least two DC police officers and one other person were taken to the hospital after run-ins with protesters, DC Fire Spokesman Vito Maggiolo told CNN. Acting DC Police Chief Peter Newsham said the officers’ injuries were considered minor and not life-threatening.
Bursts of chaos erupted on 12th and K streets as black-clad “antifascist” protesters smashed storefronts and bus stops, hammered out the windows of a limousine and eventually launched rocks at a phalanx of police lined up in an eastbound crosswalk. Officers responded by launching smoke and flash-bang devices, which could be heard from blocks away, into the street to disperse the crowds.
