Activists Are Hoping To Turn Trump’s Inauguration Into One Of The Biggest Riots In U.S. History

inauguration-white-house-photo-by-chuck-kennedyRadical leftists are planning to make January 20th the most chaotic Inauguration Day in American history.  Their stated goal is to “disrupt” the Inauguration festivities as much as possible, and they are planning a wide range of “actions” to achieve that stated goal.  Some of the more moderate groups are using terms such as “civil resistance” and “civil disobedience”, but others are openly talking about “blockades”, jumping barricades, throwing projectiles and “citywide paralysis”.  My hope is that all of their efforts will turn out to be a big flop, but it is important to understand that these groups are well funded, highly organized and extremely motivated.  The election of Donald Trump has been perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and they are working very hard to turn January 20th into a major political statement.

In fact, just recently one activist group took out a full page ad in the New York Times

Thousands of activists, journalists, scientists, entertainers, and other prominent voices took out a full-page call to action in the New York Times on Wednesday making clear their rejection of President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence with the simple message: “No!”

“Stop the Trump/Pence regime before it starts! In the name of humanity we refuse to accept a fascist America!” the ad states, followed by a list of signatories that includes scholar Cornel West; author Alice Walker; Chase Iron Eyes of the Standing Rock Sioux; educator Bill Ayers; poet Saul Williams; CNN‘s Marc Lamont Hill; Carl Dix of the Communist Party USA; and numerous others.

The ad pointed people to, and it asserted that Trump must be stopped whether he was legitimately elected or not

Trump promises to inflict repression and suffering on people in this country, to deport millions, to increase violence up to the use of nuclear weapons on people across the globe, and to inflict catastrophes upon the planet itself. He has assembled a cabinet of Christian fundamentalist fanatics, war mongers, racists, science deniers. NO! His regime must not be allowed to consolidate. We REFUSE to accept a Fascist America!

If you go to, you will discover that the protests that they are organizing in Washington D.C. will begin on January 14th.  They say that they want to “stop the Trump-Pence regime before it starts”, and they hope to have protests going “every day and every night” without interruption through at least January 20th.

Another group that plans to kick things off on January 14th is DisruptJ20.  Of course that is short for “Disrupt January 20th”.  If you go to their official website, you will find a long slate of events that have already been scheduled.

According to Legba Carrefour, a spokesperson for DisruptJ20, one of the goals of the group is to block major transportation routes into and throughout our nation’s capital.  And he is not shy about the fact that they literally want to “shut down the Inauguration”

“We are planning to shut down the inauguration, that’s the short of it,” he says. “We’re pretty literal about that, we are trying to create citywide paralysis on a level that I don’t think has been seen in D.C. before. We’re trying to shut down pretty much every ingress into the city as well as every checkpoint around the actual inauguration parade route.”

If Carrefour and his fellow conspirators are able to actually accomplish that, it truly would be unprecedented.

And while DisruptJ20 is not publicly advocating violence, they are not exactly discouraging it either…

Carrefour says DisruptJ20 has no publicly announced plans to jump barricades along the inauguration parade route or throw projectiles at the new president, but that autonomous direct actions are encouraged.

“I can’t comment on specific stuff we’re doing like that, mostly because that would be illegal. But, yeah, it will get pretty crazy, I expect,” he says. “‘Have fun!’ I say.”

After the rioting that we have seen in Baltimore, Ferguson, Charlotte and many other communities around the nation in recent years, I hope that authorities are taking these threats quite seriously.

Once Donald Trump won the election, many conservatives seemed to think that the war was won.  But the truth of the matter is that many on the left were completely blindsided by Trump’s surprise victory, and now that they are fully awake they are gearing up for battle like never before.

And these protests are not going to end on January 20th.  In fact, abortion advocates are hoping to get close to a million women into Washington D.C. on the day following the Inauguration to protest for abortion rights.  Filmmaker Michael Moore is hoping that this march will be the beginning of “100 days of resistance” against Trump’s presidency…

Filmmaker and liberal icon Michael Moore has announced his plans to attend the Women’s March on Washington to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration later this month and has called for sore loser liberals to go further — by staging protests acts of resistance through the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency.

In an appearance, this weekend on MSNBC’s The Last Word, the 62-year-old Trumpland and Fahrenheit 9/11 director made a “call to arms” to those opposed to Trump’s presidency to join the Women’s March on Washington scheduled for January 21, the day after the presidential inauguration.

“It’s important that everybody go there,” Moore told MSNBC’s Ari Melber.

Of course it is easy to imagine how all of this could spiral wildly out of control.  If Trump cracks down on these protests really hard in an attempt to restore law and order, that could end up sparking a dramatic backlash against his “police state tactics”.  And if the protests become even bigger and more violent, Trump could respond by cracking down even more harshly.

Let us hope for some really cold weather in D.C. at the end of January so that as many troublemakers as possible get discouraged and stay home.  Violent protests, blockades and riots aren’t going to solve anything, and they could easily open fresh wounds in a nation that is becoming more divided with each passing day.

    Joey888 makes some VERY GOOD POINTS! Thanks Joey. I was gonna say something along those lines, but your comment is better.

    We can pretty easily conclude that the establishment Trump beat down is really behind this stuff. Soros & co. I would sure hate to be in their shoes when they reap what they have sown.

    What are they gonna say when even more jobs are saved & returned? When the US economy starts to turn around? When even THEIR taxes are reduced? I bet NONE of the Hollyweird elites or the minion ‘protestors’ will send the amount they are saved by lower taxes back to the US Treasury.

    Shucks Homer, I am still waiting for & hoping those idiot devil serving ‘elites’ head for Canada. They are like 0blameUS. 0 drew a red line that he didn’t follow through on. The Hollyweirdoes have done the same. Buncha loud mouth chicken stuffs they are.


  2. Brian Welke says:

    Well there will be a little Group called Bikers4Trump There We like to Protect !

  3. Steve Underwood says:

    With al;l the armed Americans that will be there to support Trump there’s going to be a lot of dead activists . Just saying .

  4. stevor says:

    o’bama said he wanted to “fundamentally change” (destroy) the USA. Luckily, he’s such a failure at everything that even with Soros money/help with “riots” wherever possible, he wasn’t able to get the riots to get big enough to enable him to get away with declaring Martial Law. So, this is (hopefully but not likely) o’bama’s last gasp effort to get countrywide rioting so he can declare Martial Law and stop Trump from replacing him

  5. Joey888 says:

    If anyone cares to look back at inauguration day of January 2009, and again in 2012, did the losing candidates people bitch, moan, and cry about it? Were there riots in the streets? Were there 5,000 National Guardsmen watching over the slobbering crowd of O-Vomit lovers? NO. Now we the people have chosen a NEW leader who should be afforded the same courtesy, but alas… the LEFT/PROGS do NOT tolerate anything except THEIR way of life, which leads to DEATH. They are evil, demonic, lovers of discord to the point of committing crimes in order to get their way. Should they disobey ANY law in the District, immediate arrest of those who do it should be held accountable and punished to the maximum. Law and order had better be restored in short order, or this country has no future. O-Vomit ALMOST took our nation completely down in 8 short years. We can still get it back, but we need STRONG leadership out of D.J.T. and it needs to happen on day one!

  6. Let them attempt to disrupt Trumps inauguration, and hopefully, the police have been
    directed to shoot on sight. Take no prisoners. What would PUTIN have done, if he had
    to countenance a riot on his inauguration day? Need we wonder?

  7. Kim Chul Soo says:

    Make sure the 5000 National Guard troops are packing plenty of ammo. At the first sign of violence and/or destruction, gun their ass down decisively.

  8. RockyMtn1776 says:

    Maybe the Republicans should have done this when Obama was re-elected. By that time everyone knew what his plan to destroy America really was.

  9. What Ever says:

    If they become violent against innocent people, I hope they are gunned down in the streets. Their carcasses left to rot in the gutters until Sanitation can retrieve them.

  10. Truth Detector says:

    Time to “Lucille ” these people.
