Thousands across the USA protest Trump victory

Protesters took to the streets Wednesday in at least 10 cities to march against president-elect Donald Trump - and numerous college students and faculty leaders took to social media to announce support groups and even postponed exams.

Protests were underway in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, D.C., Portland, Ore., St. Paul, Minn. and several other cities. An estimated 2,000 protesters shouted angrily in downtown Seattle, expressing their frustration at the Trump victory over Democrat and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who won 228 electoral votes to Trump’s 279.

Police in riot gear struggled to hold back scores of protesters in some of the cities as protesters chanted “Not My President” and “No Racist USA.” The protests were mostly peaceful. Seattle police said they were investigating a report of a shooting near the site of the protest in that city, but it may not have involved protesters.

In Los Angeles, protesters poured into the streets near City Hall and torched a giant Trump effigy, the Los Angeles Times reported. Later in the night, hundreds marched onto the busy 101 Freeway which brought the highway to a complete standstill. The California Highway Patrol and the Los Angeles Police Department —who urged protesters to remain lawful and peaceful — responded and were seen leading demonstrators away from the busy highway.  At least 13 people were later arrested, LAPD Officer Tony Im told the Los Angeles Times.

Apparently white people in Seattle riot over stupid shit almost every year on May 1st, but this year they want to say it's in the name of cop brutality towards black people in America.

I’ve been looking into it and it’s literally a bunch of white dudes rioting and starting shit with cops. Residents in Seattle, Washington literally expect these riots to happen too, like it’s some kind of embarrassing holiday for them they don’t want to happen. There are peaceful protestors, but the fact that the white people are trying to justify their annual riots in the name of Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, ect., and other problems faced by the black community is fucked up.

No national gaurd was sent in on the rioters either. The police were literally trying to calm the white people in the riot with riot gear on bikes ….no armored trucks/heavy duty weapons(except smoke & tear gas), no city evacuation, little news coverage, but they wanted to dress up and ride bikes??

Here’s the short difference between the riotes. Black people are targeted, killed, framed, and avoid the cops. We don’t run up on cops, they come to us. Black people are provoked by cops/racist people. We actually live in fear of cops. They don’t go all nilly dilly shooting Billy, they go Bang Bang when they see James, you feel?

The rioters in Seattle actually confused the cops in videos, because the cops actually care for them! Cops let you smoke mad weed, and you still don’t know how to chill…The Seattle rioters are NOT with us, and are NOT with Baltimore/Ferguson or the Black cause anywhere else.

The protestors on the other hand did the right thing and should keep going strong! ✊

Nice little look back at Seattle in 1999

Two days ago marked the 42nd anniversary of the Kent State shootings where national guardsmen murdered four anti-war protestors in cold blood.

Goess what started it all?

Undercover FBI agents - who infiltrated the protestors as agents provocateurs - fired at the guardsmen.

This is how the United States of America reacts to anything which threatens either the Military-Industrial Complex or Big Business. (According to the government, war is big business. Who do you think is the biggest employers in the private sector? Defense contractors such as General Electric and BAE Systems/Lockheed Martin.) When a movement threatens the establishment, they send agents provocateurs in to stage a crisis to not only discredit the movement but to also give the police an excuse to target innocent people.

Agents provocateur paid by the FBI infiltrated the WTO protests in 1999. The protests were peaceful and the law enforcement officials were just keeping things in order, and once the provocateurs instigated violence, the police sprung into action and beat the shit out of innocent bystanders.

God bless America, huh?
