We are just days away from ending the age of Obama.
On the other hand, we are just days away from beginning the Trump administration, and I have no problem admitting that it freaks me out, a little bit.
That being said, some of the protests that are being planned, simply because liberals can’t get their heads around losing are groan-inducing.
In New York City, on Thursday, what could be thousands of New Yorkers have vowed to “stand up” to Trump’s bullying, by rallying outside of Trump International Hotel and Tower.
The event was put together by Greenpeace and MoveOn.org, because, of course it was.
The usual spate of liberal foot-stompers can be expected, along with professional grievance mongers.
Among those firing up the crowds will be Mayor Bill de Blasio, Al Sharpton, Michael Moore, Rosie Perez, and Mark Ruffalo.
“We are sending a message to Washington that we will fight, at every step, discrimination and harmful policies, today, tomorrow and every day,” Ruffalo said in a statement. He said participants “are coming together to stand up for one another, as we will do every day, to protect the values we hold dear.”
Except your values ring hollow with so many Americans and your ideal, Hillary Clinton, was rejected because of them.
Over in Washington, D.C., there will be even more protests.
On January 21, the day after the inauguration, there will be the Women’s March, and if their Facebook page is anywhere close to accurate, the event is going to be sizeable.
About three times more permits to park tour buses in D.C. have been issued for the day of the Women’s March on Washington than on Inauguration Day, according to D.C. officials.
As of Thursday afternoon, 393 permits were issued for Inauguration Day and more than 1,200 for the march.
D.C. police and the National Guard will oversee security during the march. The cost of security will likely be covered by a federal grant, he said.
The event, planned for Trump’s first, full day as president will begin at 10am on that Saturday. While it is billed as a march for women, outraged that a man with Trump’s history of misogyny could now be president, it has morphed into a liberal free-for-all, with groups standing for every leftist pet cause imaginable glomming on.
Some reports estimate a crowd of approximately 400,000.
It’s times like these that I’m especially glad that I don’t have to deal with the traffic of New York or Washington, D.C.
This is what it looks like when liberals have a temper tantrum.
Is this sour grapes? It absolutely is.
I have no doubt that a President Trump will prove disastrous, on so many levels.
Where I differ from those who can’t find anything better to do with their time on Saturday, however, is that I recognize that what’s done is done – for now.
This massive fit of pique will only serve to solidify Trump’s cult status in the eyes of those who have grown tired of being lectured at by the “enlightened” left.
After Friday, we’re all going to need a bit of time to catch our breaths and let reality sink in.
We should always remain vigilant and hold our elected officials accountable. That, however, is not a license to annoy our neighbors and countrymen with perpetual protests.
Whatever your opinions of the election, just the fact that Trump won is not a valid reason for protest.
Let’s let the man prove himself, either good or bad. If he turns out to be truly awful, I will join you in protesting and demanding justice for the sake of the nation. Until that time, however, let’s all settle down.
