Activists Are Hoping To Turn Trump's Inauguration Into One Of The Biggest Riots In U.S. History

Submitted by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

Radical leftists are planning to make January 20th the most chaotic Inauguration Day in American history.  Their stated goal is to “disrupt” the Inauguration festivities as much as possible, and they are planning a wide range of “actions” to achieve that stated goal.  Some of the more moderate groups are using terms such as “civil resistance” and “civil disobedience”, but others are openly talking about “blockades”, jumping barricades, throwing projectiles and “citywide paralysis”.  My hope is that all of their efforts will turn out to be a big flop, but it is important to understand that these groups are well funded, highly organized and extremely motivated.  The election of Donald Trump has been perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and they are working very hard to turn January 20th into a major political statement.

In fact, just recently one activist group took out a full page ad in the New York Times

Thousands of activists, journalists, scientists, entertainers, and other prominent voices took out a full-page call to action in the New York Times on Wednesday making clear their rejection of President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence with the simple message: “No!”


“Stop the Trump/Pence regime before it starts! In the name of humanity we refuse to accept a fascist America!” the ad states, followed by a list of signatories that includes scholar Cornel West; author Alice Walker; Chase Iron Eyes of the Standing Rock Sioux; educator Bill Ayers; poet Saul Williams; CNN‘s Marc Lamont Hill; Carl Dix of the Communist Party USA; and numerous others.

The ad pointed people to, and it asserted that Trump must be stopped whether he was legitimately elected or not

Trump promises to inflict repression and suffering on people in this country, to deport millions, to increase violence up to the use of nuclear weapons on people across the globe, and to inflict catastrophes upon the planet itself. He has assembled a cabinet of Christian fundamentalist fanatics, war mongers, racists, science deniers. NO! His regime must not be allowed to consolidate. We REFUSE to accept a Fascist America!

If you go to, you will discover that the protests that they are organizing in Washington D.C. will begin on January 14th.  They say that they want to “stop the Trump-Pence regime before it starts”, and they hope to have protests going “every day and every night” without interruption through at least January 20th.

Another group that plans to kick things off on January 14th is DisruptJ20.  Of course that is short for “Disrupt January 20th”.  If you go to their official website, you will find a long slate of events that have already been scheduled.

According to Legba Carrefour, a spokesperson for DisruptJ20, one of the goals of the group is to block major transportation routes into and throughout our nation’s capital.  And he is not shy about the fact that they literally want to “shut down the Inauguration”

“We are planning to shut down the inauguration, that’s the short of it,” he says. “We’re pretty literal about that, we are trying to create citywide paralysis on a level that I don’t think has been seen in D.C. before. We’re trying to shut down pretty much every ingress into the city as well as every checkpoint around the actual inauguration parade route.”

If Carrefour and his fellow conspirators are able to actually accomplish that, it truly would be unprecedented.

And while DisruptJ20 is not publicly advocating violence, they are not exactly discouraging it either…

Carrefour says DisruptJ20 has no publicly announced plans to jump barricades along the inauguration parade route or throw projectiles at the new president, but that autonomous direct actions are encouraged.


“I can’t comment on specific stuff we’re doing like that, mostly because that would be illegal. But, yeah, it will get pretty crazy, I expect,” he says. “‘Have fun!’ I say.”

After the rioting that we have seen in Baltimore, Ferguson, Charlotte and many other communities around the nation in recent years, I hope that authorities are taking these threats quite seriously.

Once Donald Trump won the election, many conservatives seemed to think that the war was won.  But the truth of the matter is that many on the left were completely blindsided by Trump’s surprise victory, and now that they are fully awake they are gearing up for battle like never before.

And these protests are not going to end on January 20th.  In fact, abortion advocates are hoping to get close to a million women into Washington D.C. on the day following the Inauguration to protest for abortion rights.  Filmmaker Michael Moore is hoping that this march will be the beginning of “100 days of resistance” against Trump’s presidency…

Filmmaker and liberal icon Michael Moore has announced his plans to attend the Women’s March on Washington to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration later this month and has called for sore loser liberals to go further — by staging protests acts of resistance through the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency.


In an appearance, this weekend on MSNBC’s The Last Word, the 62-year-old Trumpland and Fahrenheit 9/11 director made a “call to arms” to those opposed to Trump’s presidency to join the Women’s March on Washington scheduled for January 21, the day after the presidential inauguration.


“It’s important that everybody go there,” Moore told MSNBC’s Ari Melber.

Of course it is easy to imagine how all of this could spiral wildly out of control.  If Trump cracks down on these protests really hard in an attempt to restore law and order, that could end up sparking a dramatic backlash against his “police state tactics”.  And if the protests become even bigger and more violent, Trump could respond by cracking down even more harshly.

Let us hope for some really cold weather in D.C. at the end of January so that as many troublemakers as possible get discouraged and stay home.  Violent protests, blockades and riots aren’t going to solve anything, and they could easily open fresh wounds in a nation that is becoming more divided with each passing day.

We said it. Georgey Schwartzy Soros' folks haven't been quiet because they went home. They've been preparing.


Long hotel rooms, bus rentals, gas station food, zip ties. Stealing gold fillings helped him get to be able to break countries financially. Breaking countries financially has allowed him to assume his ultimate form. Breaking countries period.

This is the necessary background for a planned assassination.

Welcome, President Pence . . .

"Activists" ... or ... "Terrorists?"

Give them RPG's and they would use them.

So yeah, they are terrorists in the making.

At least in this situation a brutal, militarized law enforcement action will be justified.

So will this be the birth of a real “Self-Loathing White Liberal Lives Matter”.movement?

“Hands up, shoot anyway”.

A million of them will show up to protest Trump.

You couldn't get 10 of them to a job fair.

Better yet, I bet almost none of these paid Marxists even voted in the election. It ain't about Trump, it's about subverting Law and Order.

These people never learned how to lose, so they will destroy themselves to a man.

Nothing better has ever happened in history.

These dumbfucks must have the memory of a guppy. Obama's DC police killed a woman with her kid in the car just for making a wrong turn and getting lost.

Let's hope there will be more street protests from now on. Without protests, judging from the last 16 years, politicians think everything is fine, everyone is happy, so they can do whatever they like.
I really don't see any problem for anyone to join in the protests too just to add pressure to Trump: "Hey, we are watching you! So don't make the same mistakes as Obama and Bush."

This one will cost Soros big-time.

Self-loathing seditious white radicals cost more than self-loathing seditious black ones.


The good news is that the MSM state propaganda outlets cannot really be infuriated about shooting white people anymore.

Kent State would be celebrated today.

We get to see the next cycle of the liberal love-hate relationship with government.

Whoa… the monthly auto-shipment pallet load of popcorn is just being dropped on the driveway.. gotta go load it into the garage.

Manthong's picture

The mis-guided liberal clowns in the MSM and Hollywood (same difference) just have to be conflicted to the point that only powerful drugs can smooth things out for them.

Their contemporary social justice, cultural Marxism and relativist values have put their collective fingers on the trigger of a large circular firing squad.

Nothing can possibly make sense to them because they have no principled, moral, Aristotelian foundation.

It must be a bitch to be them.

Lot's of these people are too young to remember the hissy fit that liberls had when Reagan was elected.

When Reagan critisized the Russians, Dems shit a cow.  Times change.

Trump should have all his left over election props, bumper stickers hats and shit dropped from helicopters onto the protest.

Better to plaster the parked protest buses with Trump stickers.

Returning protesters might burn the buses. Wha? Who?

Theosebes Goodfellow's picture

At what point does "disrupting" become "treason"?

How about a "NRA 100,000 Rifle March" for the inauguration?

That would settle that "disruption" shit in a hurry.

seriously, some head of security should make a public/media statement that the troops have been given shoot to kill orders at the inauguration

"seriously, some head of security should make a public/media statement that the troops have been given shoot to kill orders at the inauguration "

That's exactly what the leftists want...a 'Situation' where they can imply that lethal force may/ will be used...

What they need to do, is change the location of the inauguration to that of a different city w/ a 2 day warning...Say, Miami, or Denver Co.; most of those leftist idiots will already be basically stranded in D.C., anybody who is anybody will get a plane ticket; fuck everyone else...

Yanno, that whole first amendment thing? The only reason for the second is to enforce the first.

Follow the money.

Any personal injuries or property damage to private citizens, law enforcement, first responders, public property/equipment, etc., any medical bills, any related travel expenses, etc., should be paid for by those who organized malicious mischief.

If they don't want to pay it would be easy enough for the .gov accountants to find a law or provision that would allow seizure and distribution of their assets to cover the costs of their rioting.

Lawyers should be on standby for a massive payday after tracing the sources of the money.

Is everybody forgetting about the anti-protesting law that Obama and Congress passed (or beefed up) a few years back?  A friend mentioned it so I looked it up.  This whole protest is completely illegal.  Read this except from a March 2012 article

"H.R. 347, benignly titled the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act, passed the House 399-3. Such a lopsided vote suggests that nobody in Congress is bothered by this, on either side of the aisle. When President Obama signed it on March 8,  almost nobody seems to have cared.

Simply put, the way the bill will “improve” public grounds is by moving all those unsightly protesters elsewhere. The law purports to update an old law, Section 1752 of Title 18 of the United States Code, that restricted areas around the president, vice president, or any others under the protection of the Secret Service. The original law was enacted in 1971 and amended in 2006. At first blush, the big change here is that while the old law made it a federal offense to "willfully and knowingly" enter a restricted space, now prosecutors need only show that you did it "knowingly"—that you knew the area was restricted, even if you didn’t know it was illegal to enter the space.

But it’s important to understand what has changed since the original law was enacted in 1971, because it shows how much a tiny tweak to the intent requirement in a statute can impact the free speech of everyone.

For one thing, the law makes it easier for the government to criminalize protest. Period. It is a federal offense, punishable by  up to 10 years in prison to protest anywhere the Secret Service might be guarding someone. For another, it’s almost impossible to predict what constitutes disorderly or disruptive conductor what sorts of conduct authorities deem to “impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions.”

The types of events and individuals warranting Secret Service protection have grown exponentially since the law was enacted in 1971. Today, any occasion that is officially defined as a National Special Security Event calls for Secret Service protection. NSSE’s can include basketball championships, concerts, and the Winter Olympics, which have nothing whatsoever to do with government business, official functions, or improving public grounds. Every Super Bowl since 9/11 has been declared an NSSE."

exactly Chiquita - Obama enabled all which you state above, which basically ends the "rights" of people to gather almost anywhere in DC locales to anything .goob & .fed, which is everywhere the inauguration is going to be.

technically Obama will have to order the arrest & imprisonment of any of these antiamerican rioters, much to the chagrin of Trump i'm sure :)

Obama should also warn any Soros supporters that under the NDAA they can and will be held without charge and indefinitely.

"-throw projectiles at the president-"

Pretty sure "Bikers for Trump" are going to be there. This could be fun to watch. Nothing like seeing a dirty stinking hippie/feminazi/snowflake get punched in the mouth by a biker.

you left out the illegals, Islamist and welfare recipients...but I was thinking the exact same thing.  Bring on the rolling thunder.

If they do actually pull it off it will mainly be whites cause blacks don't riot in winter.

there are hundreds of thousands of wind up toys, ranging in skill and ideological venom, but indeed they have set the stage for disaster.

They will be activist the day of the inauguration and Terrorist the next. If they have a riot, if they burn things down, I actually would enjoy it. They would be the vehicle for their own demise. After that we can tackle the Pedo's / Satanist in Hollywood and the DNC.

I have very reliable info that Trump and Pence plan to stay at the Eccles Building while in DC.  Keep this quiet.  Don't want the protesters to burn it down or anything.

I heard they're going to stay at the Walgreens on Dupont Circle. Keep it quiet, though.

This is great!!!!   Get them out on the street blocking traffic, and they can all be arrested.   Put the whole lot of them behind bars for a few years, and we'll all have some peace and quiet.

Vageling's picture

That is what I was thinking. Protests doesn't justify breaking the law. However I have a feeling politicians are in this as well. I know they're involved in my country. It was leaked. 

The last times they did this the popo just looked the other way. Remember the EMS that was being blocked.

Quite the opposite.   The country is TIRED of the left running riot and acting like it's the goddamned end of the world.   

These protestors are going to get the shock of their lives when they hear an 8th and I Marine Sergeant Major bellow out with leather lungs "FIX BAYONETS!!"

Except they are not Marxists or leftists and nothing in their statements indicates they are anything but identity politic obsessed nihilists. The leftist/Marxist candidate was Bernie, and no one started riots when the nomination was stolen from him in broad daylight. They are fighting for the Deep State, for whatever foreign governments Hillary sold herself to, for globalism and corporate rule, etc. They are fighting so that the 0.1% or whatever fraction that is actually in charge can tighten their grip of control. They can tell themselves they are fighting for some other reason, but Soros signs the checks at the end of the day. And since not one of them is protesting becasue Trump isn't giving them free health care or education or some other perk of socialist countries, but because he's a meanie, again, they aren't Marxists. Stop calling them that, and call them what they are so that they have to face the fact that they are just mercs for billionaires that don't like the billionaire POTUS.
