A Presidential election is held in line with the nation’s Constitution and a verdict is delivered by the Electorate in accordance with the provisions of electoral rules. So, what do ” activists “, ideological agitators and hostile media commentators ( all who supported the losing candidate ) do in response ? Organise street protests that escalate into full blown rioting. Oh, and this from the likes of Daily Kos on social media :-
” Donald Trump has won the presidency after narrowly carrying a few states to put him above 270 electoral votes.
But according to the latest numbers, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. The game is rigged.
In other words, we have a similar situation as in 2000—where the candidate who more voters picked did not become president. It is unfair, undemocratic & we must eliminate the Electoral College.
Eliminating the Electoral College does not even require a constitutional amendment.”
Undermine, subvert and seek to overthrow those processes and procedures that have heretofore been universally accepted as legitimate. Isn’t that fascist? Aren’t those carrying out all of this fascists?
The similarities between the events across many cities in the USA and the reactions in the UK to the EU Referendum verdict in favour of #Brexit are all too striking. Violent rioting aside for the moment, the political intent behind seeking to de-legitimise the Electorate’s verdict on both sides of the Atlantic spring from the same intolerant,totalitarian ideological mindset. The stench of antidemocratic sedition is apparent for all to smell.
