  • Trump Supporters: lol welcome to the real world tumblrinas
  • Real World: Increase of hate crimes since Trump got elected, Republicans refused to co-operate with Obama but expect everyone to co-operate with their canidate, supporters boycott Pepsi but protestors can't protest for their safety less they get looked at strangely.
  • Trump Supporters: *Through their own rose colored glasses* ... Stop with all your sjw buzzy buzz words sjw cuck a doodle dooo uhhhhhhh.... Cuck.
“Are you protesting?” That’s cute, but no.

I’m sorry, but do you understand how the current system even works? You can protest, but what are you protesting? An election result? 

The election worked. That’s the problem! It WORKED!

It’s worked the way it was set up. It was set up so that it works out THIS way!

It’s too late to protest. 

Besides… ain’t some of you the same people who won’t show up when WE Black people want to protest? Where were y’all?

Not in the front lines.

So you want ME to show up to a protest about an election that actually worked? Peaceful protests ain’t going to help, no matter what.

Life isn’t some cartoon musical where you sing a little song and your insipid dreams magically come true. So let it go.

Spend your energy on tolerating your new President for the next four years all while trying to upend the current system. And if you’re going to wait until ANOTHER 4 years… y’all learned nothing.

Josh Hutcherson Joins Post-Election Protests in Los Angeles

In the wake of Tuesday’s Presidential election results, Josh Hutcherson encouraged fans in Los Angeles to rally against President-elect Donald Trump Wednesday night. 

“Come join in a peaceful march through downtown LA to show the world how many of us feel!” Hutcherson tweeted. Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul was among those marching with Hutcherson.

The march drew about 5,000 people, according to NBC Los Angeles. Many rallied around city hall, while others took to area freeways on foot. Some protesters blocked portions of the 101 and 110 freeways for a time, until police walked them off. Several people were arrested.

Hutcherson became active in the 2016 campaign early in the primary season, stumping for Bernie Sanders in Iowa and registering voters in California before lending his support to Hillary Clinton. He also appeared in the Vote Your Future public service campaign in October.

One Instagram user who spotted Hutcherson at the rally was quick to make the parallel to Hutcherson’s most famous film role: “Peeta Mellark fighting for democracy.”

Protests in Los Angeles continued through the night and into Thursday.

  • What she says: I'm fine.
  • What she means: This whole UK elections thing is bothering me even though I'm not British. Ed should've won. I'm so angry at the media for down playing the protests, just like they did when Scotland didn't get its independence. I feel like the Green Party should be getting more seats. That newspaper cover really got to me.
