As violent anti-Trump protests continue to sweep the nation, many political leaders are speaking out and urging the protestors to stop and come together in unity.
The American people have spoken, and Donald Trump will be the next President.
Obama has an unprecedented moment in history to bring together Americans as one and encourage all people, regardless of their political party, to get behind Trump.
But instead of speaking out against the violent protests, Obama poured fuel on the already heated movement and told protestors to keep going.
Some experts say he is continuing his manufactured race war by encouraging protestors to “not be silent”.
“One of the great things about our democracy is it expresses itself in all sorts of ways. And that includes people protesting. I’ve been the subject of protests during the course of my eight years. And I suspect that there’s not a president in our history that at some point hasn’t been subject to these protests. So I would not advise people would feel strongly or are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised during the course of the campaign, I wouldn’t advise them to be silent. What I would advise, what I advised before the election and what I will continue to advise after the election is that elections matter,” said Obama.
However, when Obama became President, there weren’t violent protests in the streets like the anti-Trump and Black Lives Matter protests when Trump won.
Black Lives Matter protesters refuse to accept the election outcome.
A video went viral involving a gang of black men attacking a white Donald Trump voter telling him “he’s going to pay” for voting for Trump, filming him as he’s being beaten and trying to escape the angry mob.
Other videos have surfaced of Black Lives Matter protesters turning violent towards whites, while other protesters cheer on the violence.
“In another video, the death threat-laced rap song “F*** Donald Trump” is played as two black men punch and kick the white victim. One of the assailants enters a car parked in the middle of an intersection, and when the victim tries to open the driver door, another attacker hits him in the head from behind. The white man tries to open a passenger door through an open window, but the driver accelerates, and the beaten man is dragged.”
Instead of acting Presidential and condemning the violent protestors, Obama condoned these acts by spouting “elections have consequences” and encouraging protestors not to “be silent”.
But while Obama is proclaiming that “elections have consequences”, Conservative Revival previously reported a majority of the violent protesters in Portland, Oregon didn’t even vote.
Of the 100 protesters arrested in Oregon, The Daily Caller reports 69 of them either weren’t registered to vote in Oregon, or didn’t vote in the 2016 election.
Obama is encouraging people who didn’t even vote to keep protesting in the streets.
Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s campaign manager, is in disbelief at Obama’s silence and has called on the President to speak out.
Fox News reports:
“I am calling for responsibility and decency. I hope President Obama says, ‘Cut it out,'” she told “Fox News Sunday.”
With the violent protests continuing to pop up, and even some calling for Trump’s assassination, Obama needs to take a bold stand and condemn the violence.
If not, the blood will be on his hands.
Do you think President Obama should tell the protesters to stand down? Do you agree with Obama’s remarks, that protestors should “not remain silent”?
