As President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton called for Americans to support President-elect Donald Trump, George Soros was sending his minions out to protest free and fair elections.
The mass temper tantrums, organized by MoveOn.org, emerged in New York, D.C., Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Seattle, and other major cities on Nov. 9 with demonstrators blocking and cutting off traffic among calls of “not my president!”
“This is a disaster. We fought our hearts out to avert this reality. But now it’s here,” MoveOn.org staff wrote to members.
“The new president-elect and many of his most prominent supporters have targeted, demeaned, and threatened millions of us — and millions of our friends, family, and loved ones.
“Both chambers of Congress remain in Republican hands. We are entering an era of profound and unprecedented challenge, a time of danger for our communities and our country. In this moment, we have to take care of ourselves, our families, and our friends — especially those of us who are on the front lines facing hate, including Latinos, women, immigrants, refugees, Black people, Muslims, LGBT Americans, and so many others. And we need to make it clear that we will continue to stand together.”
Meanwhile, distraught “snowflakes” [defined by Wikipedia as students who seek to avoid emotionally charged topics or dissenting ideas and opinions] on the American University campus burned the American flag to protest Trump’s victory.
“The American flag has represented this imperialist, white supremacist, hegemonic masculinity,” Isaiah Young told The Weekly Standard. “People want to use [the flag] as this thing of, ‘oh, great freedom,’ but … this country was built off the backs of enslaved people, indigenous people.”
Young acknowledged that “some people might view” the flag burning as “disrespectful,” but said that it put him at peace.
Gail Hanson, AU’s vice president of campus life, said the protest was meant to provide solace for “people who needed a quiet place to reflect and talk.” Asked about Johnson’s flag burning, Hanson said that AU is “very protective of freedom of expression.”
