Shouldn’t #TrumpRiot Really Be #HillaryRiot?

Can’t you patriarchal misogynists give her credit for anything???

Azadeh Ansari, CNN:

Thousands protesting Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election took to the streets for a third night of demonstrations and vigils in several US cities.

An anti-Trump rally in Portland, Oregon, revved up as protesters confronted police Thursday night. What started out as a peaceful march, with more than 4,000 people, quickly turned violent.

They then corrected that: just 26 arrests. Still, somebody needs go in there and chill those Portlanders out. Send in Fred Armisen!

Now that Donald Trump has won, apparently they’ve given him back his phone. Here’s his reaction:


And of course, #TrumpRiot is trending on Twitter. Which, all kidding aside, doesn’t seem fair. He’s not making these people do this. They’re responsible for their own behavior. He’s got enough emotional problems of his own without being held accountable for theirs.

If Hillary had won and people rioted, you know what would be trending on Twitter right now? #TrumpRiot. It’s his fault either way, because he ran and won as a Republican. Somehow, he’s responsible for the actions of Democrats, in a Democrat-run city, in a Democrat-run state.

Has there been any rioting in Republican-run cities? I’m asking because I haven’t seen the whole list yet. I guess it’s possible.

I mean, people freaked out when some college kids wrote “Trump 2016” in chalk on the sidewalk. That was an act of aggression that had them running for their safe spaces. Free speech is violence when it offends leftists, and violence is free speech when committed by leftists.

This is why you lost, Democrats. This is why America has rejected you. You’re so awful, even Trump can beat you.
