Default Protests turn violent - Nov. 9, 2016

Protests in many cities tonight, organized by Soros and Scott Foval (BLM, the co-opted Occupy Movement & Radical Feminists).

Be careful out there...

Good Lord - seriously? I'm actually watching non-politics on tv. Guess I'm watching the late evening news before bed time.

Things are definitely getting more serious. And add Richmond (Kaine's hometown) and New Orleans to the list.

Boston, St. Paul, Miami, Kansas City, Omaha, Austin.

It will be interesting to see if any of these protests grow legs, so to speak, and last more than a couple of nights.

Could be... we're heading into a weekend. I took a quick peek at CNN during an ad break - heading there after my show ends. I'll be curious to see how these protests are 'readin' - organized? Purposeful...?

LA, NYC, Philly, Chicago, Washington, LA... many other cities.... wow.

Apparently, very organized on the social media level.

Boy - a lot of work to be done.

One of our newsies just spoke of an American who, last night, spoke of suicide... good grief.

Been catching some interviews - lots of impassioned nothingness, some frightening ignorance... promises of violence, (lovely), tons of righteous indignation &... a feeling this is being stage managed.

A few have spoken of other planned protests - could be a busy weekend.

That particular corner is a syphillitic pustule on the fetid ass of downtown Seattle. I highly doubt that the shootings were related the protests - probably a drug deal gone bad or trying to settle scores when they figured the cops would be otherwise occupied. Were it almost any other corner, I would be skeptical about claims that it was not protest-related.

It Looks Like George Soros is Funding the Trump Protests Just Like He Funded the Ferguson Riots
