I have decided to wear a red shirt in protest to the riots/protests against the election results. I will wear red until the madness stops, I will no longer sit back silently while this BS takes place. Since I do not intend to riot or get involved in screaming matches with these snowflakes I will do it with my clothing while OCing.

I ask others to join me, if we get enough maybe we can get Drudge involved and take it nationwide.

Odd, I know of no protests relating to the loss in the election of Johnson.

Unless your apparel says "Trump something" I doubt people will know you are protesting though.

You are free to protest the protests as you see fit. Have fun !

And I will, Johnson lost BTW. If enough people jump on, excluding you of course, and there is media attention I believe the message will get across.

Protests or Riots?

Protests are as American as apple pie. I have no problem with peaceful protests. In the case of election results they seem rather pointless unless someone can provide credible evidence of the illegal vote fraud benefiting Trump.

Riots, on the other hand, are a different matter.

Assaulting innocent people, damaging or destroying property, or shutting down public roads and mass transit are serious crimes and should be prosecuted as such.

Crossing State lines to riot, or paying folks to cross State lines might also be crimes that should be investigated, prosecuted, and punished.

Fortunately, it seems most anti-Trump riots have occurred in safe-riot zones (aka unarmed victim zone, aka "gun free zones") including the urban areas of liberal States.

Baloon wall construction virtually guarantees total devastation of the property improvements. Take note of the complete lack of personal property shown - no furniture, no clothing., etc.

First Amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
What is the definition of "peaceably assemble"?

And I can tell you that the courts will never entertain a lawsuit for the redress of grievances. The courts will determine that the issues raised in court for redress of grievances is/are political in nature and is/are better taken up with congress. Of course congress will ignore your grievances. The result is Donald Trump......
