Is a Civil War Brewing in the USA?

As we mentioned last night, the voters rebelled and Donald Trump won the presidency because of that.

Just a few hours after the election was called though, some anti-Trump protesters took to the streets.

Nothing major, but the spectacle got intense in Oakland.

((Protesters chanting))

The main beef seems to be that left-wing protesters do not respect an honest election.

By the way, that's a hallmark around the world.  Every Communist and socialist takeover from Cuba to Venezuela to Soviet Russia back in the early 20th century featured violence and assaults on freedom.

Here in the USA we honor protest but increasingly we are seeing people who want our system destroyed. 

PROTESTER: If we don’t fight, who is going to fight for us?  People had to die for your freedom where we’re at today.  We can’t just do rallies, we have to fight back.  There will be casualties on both sides.  There will be, because people have to die to make a change in this world.  Trump, enough with your racism.  Stop splitting families.  Don’t split my family.”

Now, do I believe that woman wants to kill people?  No, I don't.  I think she is simply hysterical.

But there are people, agitators ,who do want to hurt you if you do not believe the way they do:

PROTESTER: “A lot of us, especially I think as young people, are really shocked and not okay with this decision, not okay with our system.  ((EDIT)) We’re here to speak out, we’re here to really create the revolution that we know is possible.”

That woman is a moron.  The revolution is going the other way, as we saw when almost 60 million Americans voted for Trump, a man with no political experience.

That ballot-box protest was peaceful.  It's the way our republic works.  No one was hurt, no one terrorized, no one killed.

Unfortunately, our system is not being respected in many American public schools.

More than a thousand students walked out of Berkeley High School in California.

((PROTESTERS CHANTING “LOVE TRUMPS HATE,” AND “NOT OUR PRESIDENT.”))

And in San Francisco, there's talk that the state of California should secede from the union.

CALIFORNIA MAN: “I would love to see us become our own country in some ways – the Republic of California because it’s just so surreal – it feels unreal.”

That sounds a lot like the South before the Civil War, does it not?

Finally, the race hustlers are very angry.  Chief among them Al Sharpton, who despises Donald Trump.

 

SHARPTON: But he cannot say he did not run a campaign that has created a lot of racial fears and a lot of divisiveness and he played to the crowd and he knew what he was playing to.  I know him here in New York.  He knew exactly what he was doing.  He was playing to the worst elements. ((EDIT)) We need to analyze, this man's going to be president and all that many of us have fought for during our lives is at stake.  And we are not going down without a fight and Donald needs to know that.”

So what kind of fight, Al?  Are you going to encourage violence like you've done in the past?

Are you going to spout hatred, which is one of your trademarks?

Are you going to divide Americans along racial lines, which has made you a fortune?

I'd like to see Al Sharpton run for office, then we'd find out what kind of constituency he really has.

And on the racial front, Talking Points has analyzed the vote on Tuesday.

We found that more than a million African-Americans stayed home as compared to 2012.

The stats are these:

There were about 15.6 million votes cast by blacks.

In 2012 that number was 16.7 million.

The effect was devastating on the Democrats, as Trump won Wisconsin by just 27,000 votes.

In Michigan, he's ahead by 12,000 votes.

And in Pennsylvania, Trump won by 68,000 votes.

Had black Americans voted the same way they did in 2012, say hello to President Hillary Clinton.

The reason some African-Americans did not turn out is that a number of African-Americans simply do not trust Mrs. Clinton.

On the Donald Trump front, he got 13% of the black male vote, as opposed to Mitt Romney getting 11% back in 2012.

Black females supported Trump to the tune of four percent, as opposed to three percent last time around, so Trump outperformed Romney by three points among blacks.

Summing up, Talking Points respects sincere protest.  If you believe Donald Trump is not good for America, there is no problem with you displaying that opinion.

However, if you hurt someone, destroy something or promote anarchy, you then become a danger to the republic.

That kind of stuff needs to be punished and quickly.

Also, we are living in an amazingly destructive politically correct environment here in America.

Just because something offends you, doesn't mean you have the right to hurt or destroy.

The new president might want to make that very clear.

And if you don't like it, Canada and Mexico are nearby.

They might be happy to have you.  Then again, they might not.

And that's the memo.
