I've been hearing of traffic getting stopped, stuff burning in streets, and even some windows getting busted out of a building (and strangely a dumpster on train tracks) around the country and down in Seattle. Protesting peacefully, okay, but destructive protesting? What the heck is wrong with some people?

A racist rapist was voted as the President of the United States.

Honestly, what did people expect? If no American protested, I'd have an even lower opinion of the country than I already do.

Yes, I know that's an unpopular opinion. I don't care.

Apparently it was a fairly average voter turn out for Republicans, compared to previous elections. Democrats on the other hand... not as enthusiastic. Sure hope they're uncharacteristically spirited in 2 years time, let alone 4 years time.

I mean, if we somehow didn't already know before, Standing Rock and Ferguson have taught us that, at least for the marginalised, whether the protest is violent or peaceful, the State response is the same. So really, what difference does it make.

Besides that, it probably isn't any worse that the riots post 2012 election. Or the Trump constituents who are acting up already.

I feel really sad for my American friends. I have several and they're all upset. Heck, my therapist is American. She's just devastated (she's also an abuse victim). But she's saying that there are good people there and they will not give up the fight to get this monster out of power. I'm proud of her, and them.

Gotta keep moving, gotta keep fighting. Sometimes I'd love to just pack my shit and move. Canada is gorgeous. Hell, maybe I'd go back to Italy. But I can't give up on my country.

But when I was in the military I raised my right hand to fight for America, and I did. Now that I'm a civilian, I'll keep fighting, although in a different way.

That same thing happened at my work too!

At any rate I've accepted it and I'm curious to see where it goes. Not much else we can do at this point... I don't think he can really take away our gay marriage or anything like that. I just hope he doesn't get impeached because I feel Pence would be even worse

Generally I agree with this idea.

I said the same thing about all the protests against all the police brutality and, frankly, state sanctioned slaughter of people of color. I said "peace will prevail" and that the system can, ultimately, be used to accomplish great things. Only by remaining civil can we achieve anything.

Then we, as a nation, elected Donald Trump.

And to make matters worse we ended up ceding control of the entire government to a political party whose central message of morality is around the subjugation of others. And now we as a people have to call this mysognynistic, racist, homophobic piece of human garbage our president.

Mike Pence has already confirmed they are going to begin undoing the protection Obama put in place for LGBTQ citizens. More atrocities will soon follow I am sure.

The right voted for him as a protest candidate. As one NBC anchor put it "using him as a molotov cocktail to burn down Washington." Well turnabout is fair play, I say.

I still think that humanity is at its best when civility is maintained. But there is nothing civil about our president elect. That said the election of this man was an act of war against anybody who isn't white and straight. I am not suprised and can hardly bring myself to chastise those who take out their emotions through destruction - so long as they are not attacking or god forbid killing people.

I heard the opposite, I heard they weren't going to do anything about this. Mind you, I heard this from someone on youtube who was gay and voted for Trump but... I'm wondering if you can post a source?
