Trump inauguration threatened with ‘nationwide shutdown’
In addition to tens of thousands protesting in America’s largest cities from coast to coast, progressives are now threatening to pull off a nationwide shutdown on President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration day.
With violent protests taking place in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, New Orleans, Chicago and Portland, Oregon – just to name a few – Democrats upset that their presidential nominee Hillary Clinton lost are waging war against the conservative candidate that Americans legally voted into office at the ballot box. Their protest in The Big Easy saw one of the monuments there being vandalized with the word “Die whites die” emblazoned on it.
Resistance will continue – in one form or another

The left isn’t happy about Donald Trump being elected the 45th President of the United States. So they’ve organized into groups protesting the outcome – sometimes resulting in riots, violence, and vandalism.
Anti-Trump protesters in Portland, Oregon in the early morning 48 hours after the election were breaking windows and setting fires amid vulgar chants and slogans. KPTV reported that somewhere during the chaos, anti-police activists with “Don’t Shoot Portland” and “Black Lives Matter” found time to reorganize into a group called “Portland’s Resistance.”
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, filmmaker Michael Moore promised more to come. “We are going to resist, we are going to oppose,” he vowed. “These demonstrations you are seeing on the streets? This is going to continue tonight and the next night and the next night.”
On the same show, author and columnist Anand Giridharadas said though the riots might end, the resistance is here to stay.
“Resistance could just mean the ACLU getting more funding and organizations that stand up for refugees getting more funding and people who investigate hate crimes getting more funding,” he stated. “Resistance is going to be a multifarious thing.”
Bob Vander Plaats of The Family Leader says the reaction to the election shows a stark contrast between ardent conservatives and ardent liberals.
“I was never concerned that if Hillary Clinton won the presidency that there was going to be violent movements on the right,” he tells OneNewsNow – adding that many on the right predicted left-leaning activists would protest violently if Trump won.
KPTV reports today that via a GoFundMe account, leaders of Portland’s Resistance have raised more than $50,000 for businesses and property owners who were the victims of the vandalism.
Sleepless in Seattle
In Seattle, elected officials – including its homosexual mayor and city council member – expressed their unwillingness to submit to policies administered under a Trump administration.
“A self-avowed Marxist member of the Seattle City Council who is part of the George Soros-funded Occupy Wall Street movement has called for a ‘massive protest’ against President-elect Donald Trump and a ‘nationwide shut down’ on Inauguration Day,” WND reported. “Kshama Sawant went on an anti-Trump rant following the election that stirred up progressives’ emotions against Trump voters, calling them part of a ‘racist agenda.’”
The socialist city council member, who immigrated to the United States from her native India, wasted little time to publicly incite a rebellion against the man who the Leftist media constantly asked whether or not he would accept the election results if he lost.
“Sawant held a press conference calling for a mass protest in Seattle, [which] was attended by students, members of Seattle’s LGBTQ community, as well as Occupy members and Muslims,” WND’s Leo Hohmann informed. “One woman took the podium in a hijab and unleashed a profanity-laced tirade.”
One female Muslim demonstrator was quite vocal about her unwillingness to listen to any safety concerns or regulations regarding her religious headdress.
“I am told, ‘do not wear the hijab or you will be targeted,’” the hostile Islamic Democrat yelled before screaming profanity into a megaphone. “I say [expletive] you!”
Sawant – who became the first socialist to win a city-wide election in Seattle since 1916 – when Anna Loise Strong was elected to the city’s public school board – wasted little time to accuse Trump of running a “racist agenda,” which she said must be stopped. She insisted that America cannot and will not accept the new Republican president-elect.
“I appeal to you: Today at 4 o’clock, Westlake, let’s have a massive protest, and tell America we do not accept a racist agenda,” the virulent elected official demanded. “And, let’s make sure that, on Inauguration Day, on the 20th and 21st of January, let’s do a nationwide shutdown and Occupy inauguration.”
Sawant’s political views are anchored in a background that includes her involvement in the controversial Occupy demonstrations, as well as in anti-Semitic activity.
“Sawant – besides being a socialist and community organizer who agitates through the Occupy Wall Street movement – is also a self-avowed Marxist with membership in the Committee for a Workers International, a Trotskyist organization based in Britain,” Hohmanan pointed out. “As an economics professor at Seattle Central Community College, she agitated against the state of Israel, calling on President Obama to cut off all aid to the Jewish state. The college did not renew her teaching contract when it expired more than a year ago.”
She gave a speech in Seattle at University Temple Methodist Church in May 2013 inciting others to adopt her socialist worldview.
“[It] is a very odd profession for a Marxist to be an economist in today’s world,” Sawant told those in attendance. “So, I have to swim against the stream. But the most interesting thing that is happening since two years ago is that the tide is starting to turn [in favor of socialism and against capitalism].”
According to the elected Seattle official, the “root of all problems is capitalism” – a phrase she declared from the podium.
“Hopefully, we will all feel empowered by that,” Savant continued. “When I say ‘we’ I mean Socialist Alternative. I’m a member of Socialist Alternative. It’s a nationwide organization of socialists and activists. And as you might guess, we have been since about 1985 very active in fighting various battles for social and economic justice … Our approach as socialists – as Marxists – is that, a lot of the problems that we see, and a lot of problems that progressives and young people and women feel a lot of anger, justifiable anger and outrage about, are not isolated issues.”
Her extremism then went on to embrace the pro-abortion and pro-homosexual agendas.
“And If you’re angry about the tax on the reproductive rights of women, if you’re angry about the almost skyrocketing of rape cases and just gruesomeness of sexual violence, if you’re angry about the tax on LGBT rights, if you’re angry about how hard it is to fight for LGBT rights … all these questions are so interrelated because they’re stemming from a system that unendlessly and relentlessly creates conditions for all these problems,” the agitator argued. “And of course, that system is capitalism.”
Revolutionaries joining arms
With the ultimate goal of inciting an insurrection against America’s political and economic system, Sawant and other revolutionaries target events such as Donald Trump’s election to incite anger and upheavals.
“Only this time, it may be more violent with Muslim Brotherhood and Black Lives Matter elements joining socialists in the Occupy movement,” WND warned. “A senior Muslim Brotherhood executive, Khalilah Sabra, announced at a national conference of the Muslim-American Society in December 2015 that the Brotherhood planned to team up with non-Muslim radicals to initiate a [violent] revolution in America.”
