Is The U.S. On The Precipice Of Widespread Civil Unrest?

Michael Snyder, Zero Hedge/The Economic Collapse blog: The United States Is On The Precipice Of Widespread Civil Unrest

It doesn’t take much of a trigger to push extremely large crowds of very angry protesters into committing acts of rioting and violence. And rioting and violence can ultimately lead to widespread civil unrest and calls for “revolution”. The election of Donald Trump was perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and we have already seen that a single move by Trump can literally cause protests to erupt from coast to coast within 48 hours. On Friday, Trump signed an executive order that banned refugees from Syria indefinitely and that placed a 90 day ban on travel to the United States for citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Within hours, protesters began to storm major airports, and by Sunday very large crowds were taking to the streets all over the country…

WNU Editor: President Trump's opponents .... both Democrat and Republican .... were completely shocked by the election results that gave the victory to Donald Trump .... and that is saying it lightly. I have been a devoted student of U.S. Presidential elections since Ronald Reagan's victory in 1980 .... and I have never seen the vitriol and hatred that has been directed at a new President .... even before he has been sworn in .... as I am seeing now. And once he was sworn in .... with the full power of the Presidency .... the intensity of this opposition and hatred has now gone off the scale. The fact that President Trump does not back down .... but in fact doubles down when he is attacked .... only adds to the anger that I am now seeing. And while many protestors and opponents of President Trump now believe that the momentum is in their camp .... I have a completely different take. Support for President Trump among his base and who helped get him elected has not wavered .... in fact .... I sense that they are reveling in it as President Trump continues to deliver on the campaign promises that he made during the election. As for the future .... these protests are going to intensify .... and the media will help to galvanize it .... but it is not going to change the situation, and that situation is that President Trump is the President.

They are organizing.

The Women's March alone resulted in 68 registrations/campaigns to run against Blue Dog's and Republicans in 2018 House and Senate races,

470 at the State level,

1886 at the Muninicipal level,

The ACLU took in 150,000 new members and $27 million in two days.

Marshall law may well come sooner rather than later, and yet the liberals will still found someone else to blame.

Looks like we may get to see why they built all those so called FEMA Camps, and those special trains.Most Dictators once overthrown usually are executed on Scaffolds their people built, not suggesting that this is what will happen, but Bush and Obama put a lot of that infrastructure in place, as well as the NSA spying programs. I said the the Trump Presidency would be entertaining, and it looks like it just maybe, he doesn't seem to be the type to put up with a lot of this.

Trump won the election. The anti-Trump protesters are emotionally unable to accept that reality. As WNU Editor said, no matter how unhappy the protesters are, their emotional intensity, even if it is sincerely held, will not change reality. Reality does not care that one's feelings are hurt.

The United States is certainly not on the verge of widespread civil unrest. The people demonstrating now are like to Occupy Wall Street types. It is easy to smash a store window, but I see no evidence of pro-Trump people taking to the streets to fight the protesters. The United States was much more polarized during Vietnam. The notion that the USA is facing widespread civil unrest is projection by people who wish it were so.

Yes, we are at the Brink. Evil money men like Soros are paying for it.

the north Dakota AG asked the protesters at the pipelines to report their earnings. They are being paid for by assholes like Soros.

Some of us have jobs or we would show up on our own dime and counter protest liberal assholes.
