Awwwww.... Such peace loving leftists.  It's a shame that they didn't take more of each other out in their peace protest.

Is clintonsupporters.com taken yet?  Set it up and upload the photos and videos of their actions.  "These are your Clinton Supporters."
Better still, send the photos to the Facebook pages of the pro-Clinton celebs that were threatening to leave the country.

Do the signs read: "Down with democracy!"?

Albuquerque had a protest, but it wasn't so exciting. I followed it back and forth from downtown to UNM a few times, and it stayed peaceful for most of the duration, but holy fuck, was it retarded. It still had the yellow signs with the black lettering, and the ones that I read said that they were from pslweb.org, i.e. the Party for Socialism and Liberation.

I've gotten good at reading these kinds of crowds, for the most part it was chanting stupid things like "FUCK TRUMP" and "THE PEOPLE UNITED WILL NEVER BE DEFEATED." (Sorry chaps, we are divided.) Towards the end, they started chanting shit about revolution briefly. I didn't have time to record it, but right after that, they climbed up onto I-25 and started blocking traffic. If you know anything about New Mexico drivers, you know how incredibly stupid that is. That was also when I saw the first guys with gang tats there, and the mood of the crowd changed rapidly from a bunch of dumbshit kids thinking they were activists to that of a mob. That was also when the riot police came in. That was when I backed off, because the mob was really starting to get nasty and the cops meant business and I didn't want to get stuck in the middle of that.

I did get some shitty pics of them up on I-25 while I was they were blocking it.

One funny thing that happened was when I had a kid in a Guy Fawkes mask approach me. He said "You're the undercover cop, aren't you!" I looked at him and in a very sarcastic tone said "Suuuuuure I am!" I could see the confusion through the mask just from his eyes alone. I would have paid money to have seen his whole face.

Albu is harsh..they shoot the homeless for fun right?

...or was that one off?

Anyway, after I got an Escargo™ lifted off my car roof a few years back I just drive through as quickly as I can. Then I pass by super liberal Santa Fe. I never feel safe until I get to the NRA Whittington Facility. NM is a rough state. Blue as can be and poor.

They've actually backed off of the shooting people bit, but the riot cops were jumpy like fuck, which is why I didn't want to be between them and the protesters. The other cops were laid back though. I've seen bigger mobs in the past by far.

Speaking of the homeless, there were a lot more downtown than there used to be, sleeping in nooks and crannies and even out in the open on the sidewalk. There's one spot on Central that is an underpass for railroad tracks, and I walked up on one homeless guy shooting heroin up. He actually apologized for letting me see it. Polite junkies /= Then I came across some crazy lady whom I thought was yelling at me while I was walking back to my vehicle. It turns out that she was just yelling at a hallucination. Our society really is going to shit.

Hillary Supporters Lives Matter.....

Automatic Choke's picture

Wait a goldarned second....

 

Everybody here is disparaging the protesters as being idiots -- y'all are saying that they don't understand or accept the democratic process.

My interpretation is different -- they understand only too well, but don't want to give up on their hope for free shit for the rest of their lives.  With DJT in office, it is far more likely that they will have to go out and get real jobs.   Who can blame them for having a temper tantrum.

Oldwood's picture

So, it comes as a big surprise that so many DONT vote for candidates promising jobs? Our typical candidates promises economic justice and equality and entitlements and free shit, but jobs? That's a sure fire way to scare off half the electorate. In their mind no one should be FORCED to work simply to sustain themselves. Work is supposed to be about personal fulfillment, but by no means be a requirement for fulfillment.

Yes, good friend overheard couple of Dindus at the polling station talking about voting for Hillary, said if she won they wouldn't have to find a job as she would "hook them up". Said with Trump they would have to go to work.

Democrat party is prety much multi race didus, supported by taxes, low watt shuffle bums that get sit around jobs in tax supported gov jobs ( 'working: welfare ) and tax supported 'private' crony buisnesses from dive hotels as $500/shelters up to the MIC.

( its half taxes and half money/savings destruction via fed fiat )

Once again, Scott Adams was right.  June 5th, 2016:

http://blog.dilbert.com/post/145456082991/my-endorsement-for-president-o...

It's worth posting the whole thing here:

I’ve decided to come off the sidelines and endorse a candidate for President of the United States. 

I’ll start by reminding readers that my politics don’t align with any of the candidates. My interest in the race has been limited to Trump’s extraordinary persuasion skills. But lately Hillary Clinton has moved into the persuasion game – and away from boring facts and policies – with great success. Let’s talk about that.

This past week we saw Clinton pair the idea of President Trump with nuclear disaster, racism, Hitler, the Holocaust, and whatever else makes you tremble in fear. 

That is good persuasion if you can pull it off because fear is a strong motivator. It is also a sharp pivot from Clinton’s prior approach of talking about her mastery of policy details, her experience, and her gender. Trump took her so-called “woman card” and turned it into a liability. So Clinton wisely pivoted. Her new scare tactics are solid-gold persuasion. I wouldn’t be surprised if you see Clinton’s numbers versus Trump improve in June, at least temporarily, until Trump finds a counter-move.

The only downside I can see to the new approach is that it is likely to trigger a race war in the United States. And I would be a top-ten assassination target in that scenario because once you define Trump as Hitler, you also give citizens moral permission to kill him. And obviously it would be okay to kill anyone who actively supports a genocidal dictator, including anyone who wrote about his persuasion skills in positive terms. (I’m called an “apologist” on Twitter, or sometimes just Joseph Goebbels). 

If Clinton successfully pairs Trump with Hitler in your mind – as she is doing – and loses anyway, about a quarter of the country will think it is morally justified to assassinate their own leader. I too would feel that way if an actual Hitler came to power in this country. I would join the resistance and try to take out the Hitler-like leader. You should do the same. No one wants an actual President Hitler.

So I’ve decided to endorse Hillary Clinton for President, for my personal safety. Trump supporters don’t have any bad feelings about patriotic Americans such as myself, so I’ll be safe from that crowd. But Clinton supporters have convinced me – and here I am being 100% serious – that my safety is at risk if I am seen as supportive of Trump. So I’m taking the safe way out and endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.

As I have often said, I have no psychic powers and I don’t know which candidate would be the best president. But I do know which outcome is most likely to get me killed by my fellow citizens. So for safety reason, I’m on team Clinton.

My prediction remains that Trump will win in a landslide based on his superior persuasion skills. But don’t blame me for anything President Trump does in office because I endorse Clinton.

The rest of you are on your own. Good luck.
