PostSubject: Nationwide protests about the election   Fri Nov 11, 2016 7:16 am

There have been riots in major cities all over the country ranging from a few hundred to a couple of thousand folks involved.  While the damage is small, it is totally uncalled for.

The liberal left wants to say that conservatives are the intolerant haters.  However, you did not see conservatives taking to the streets when Obama was elected either time.  Looting was not an option.  Finding a candidate to defeat him was our goal.

Now you have these people rioting because they did not get their way with the election.  Poor sweet spoiled rotten brats.  They are showing who the haters and intolerant are.  I almost bet that we'll find that some of these protestors are paid to be out there just as they have been at Trump rallies and Black Lives Matter rallies.

I am to the point that rioting needs to be dealt with in a huge way.  Charge these folks with domestic terrorism plus whatever damages they cause.  If the charges are harsh and swift enough, MAYBE it will make people think twice before smashing windows, looting in stores, or burning cars/stores to the ground.  Enough is enough!!!

Our country has gotten extremely "wussified" over the last 20 years.  I came across this article and was completely disgusted with how fragile the millenials have become.

I did love this comment from one of the college students.
Quote :
“It’s a sad story that campus administrators keep coddling liberal students using my tuition money,” Dunn said. “The election is over kids, time to put on our big boy pants and get to work making our country a better place.”

Our future is bleak when that is the backbone of that generation.

I think there's a definite difference in protesting and rioting. I'm all for protesting. Express your opinion. Really, without protesting, we would still be a British colony.

Rioting, however, is not an acceptable thing to me.

You hit it right on the nail.  I think that peaceful protesting is fine.  It shows strength and solidarity from the folks wanting to bring awareness or change of action/laws into play.  It gains attention the right way.

I don't get rioting over anything, but especially not the election.  That car you burned.  How do you know that a Clinton supporter didn't own it?  That business where you smashed the windows and stole 3 flatscreen tvs.  How do you know a Clinton supporter didn't own it?  You are very possibly punishing people that voted the same as you.  The riots are just to try to scare people into submission.  I bet you will find that the leaders of the riots in many, if not most, are paid to stir up dissension and mischief like in the Black Lives Matter and anti-Trump rallies.

I'm just wondering how many of the people protesting Trump's victory are "Bernie or Bust" people who didn't vote.

Funny you speak about the rioters being spoiled, that was exactly what I was thinking.
And yes, of course those people are intolerant. But alas, it's one of those things that are so blandly obvious that the people themselves have developed a blindness for it. So slamming them in the face with reality will not work.

Anyway, I'm baffled about the fact that people start rioting because the elections didn't turn out the way they'd like to. Until now, I have almost always voted for the conservative christian party in the Netherlands, and they have a whopping 3 out of 150 seats in parliament these days. Never got angry after the elections; 3 seats isn't that bad considering their history and the contempt/hate the other people have for that party.
Of course that kind of a system is different from a presidential election in the USA, where it is generally the one or the other. But even then, you should go with whomever turns out to become president. Reacting with temper tantrums should make clear that maturity is becoming more rare in the USA.

Well, I got handed a weird situation today.  Our principal at school sent out an email to all employees stating that we were not allowed to discuss politics as it was upsetting students.  They also tacked on the typical religion, sexual preferences, etc.  But, the gist of the email was:  you are not allowed to talk politics at all because it makes the whiny butt babies uncomfortable.

Better create a "safe space" for them before they cry.

Sadly, this is what you see from young Millennials and the generation born since 2000.

Just to play devil's advocate:

Is it really appropriate for adults who are teachers to discuss politics in front of their students? Aside from a history or poli-sci class?

I'm not trying to be a butt here, but professionally speaking, some topics are best left alone. And given how this past election season went, some of your students may have seen arguments or even fist fights about politics. I know of a couple folks who had family members get into physical altercations over the election - one was even jailed for his behavior.

So aside from the professionalism aspect, you may be causing a student to remember something that was traumatic to them. Maybe instead of dismissing the "whiny butt babies", you could have a little empathy.

I mean, do you think us when we are hurt and praying to Jesus, he just calls us whiny butt babies?

I think it is more about being PC than anything as we have been instructed to not discuss it during school hours even if a student brings it up in the hall.

I believe Jesus wants to hear from us, but sometimes I am betting that He does think we're whiny babies.  He would be right, too.  He does empathize and sympathize ,  but He also knows that we complain or fear the tiniest things even when we should know that He has it covered.

I understand what you're saying but I was talking more about those who were actually hurt - that's why I made the parallel to our prayer. If we're genuinely hurt about something, I think he cares.

But to the point, I know there are plenty of people (not just kids, I've seen it at my job) that are whining about the election. I just felt like there was another side that needed considered (other than our own, you know?).
