Behold. The end of the 2016 presidential election...

The victor is Donald J. Trump, a businessman and television personality from New York City, in an extraordinary upset with little, if any, historical precedent...

In light of the foregoing, if you are Democrat, you are likely asking yourself: what happened?...

As a gesture of goodwill toward my fellow Americans, let me help. There are three overarching reasons you lost.

First, you took your supporters for granted—particularly people of color. In 2012, Democrats enjoyed a clear signal from the electorate to proceed with their plans under President Obama. By 2016, however, the voters that had provided so much padding for Obama were disenchanted by empty promises.

For example, your failure to curb the influx of illegal immigrants diluted the demand for unskilled labor and reduced wages, depriving many impoverished people of color of the chance to secure that critical first rung on the ladder to economic prosperity. Based on statistics provided by the Obama administration, since 2009, you have diminished black labor force participation rate by 2.4 percent, increased the number of black Americans living in poverty by 1.2 percent, reduced black median income by 1.5 percent, reduced black home ownership by 9.1 percent, and increased the number of black Americans living on food stamps by a staggering 58.2 percent (to your credit, you did tweet #BlackLivesMatter a lot).

Second, you forced your agenda down the throats of Americans using undemocratic means, especially concerning transgender issues. According to a May 2016 CBS/New York Times poll, Americans were largely split on whether one’s gender identity should dictate bathroom usage. Despite the issue being clearly ripe for political debate in lawmaking bodies, you thought it appropriate to use the presidency and the federal courts as a bludgeon to force ideological compliance. This followed a series of similarly undemocratic measures on gun control, immigration reform, and Syrian refugees—all of which Americans opposed or at least thought warranted greater congressional input.

Finally—and perhaps most importantly—you did not listen to your fellow citizens. “Working-class whites” became synonymous with “bigots”; you could not imagine a white, straight, cisgender, male without seething with rage. Through this one-dimensional lens (called a “prejudice”)... you bullied your dissidents into submission.

Then, to entrench these delusions in your mind, you created a media juggernaut to incessantly shill out affirmations of your beliefs... You entombed yourself in a gigantic echo-chamber...>

... after spending decades putting the pieces back together, when you have finally regained your political credibility, hopefully you will think twice before reintroducing liberal fascism into the land of the free.

About those rioters..., by Patricia McCarthy, American Thinker, November 13, 2016:

...The D.C. establishment has long been seduced and then trapped by the addictive effervescence that is life in D.C... They live in a rarefied world untouched by flyover country or its citizens. Gradually they come to loathe those constituents, the ones who call them with petty complaints and local issues...

This is why Trump won. Those millions of people across the nation are sick to death of being ignored, mocked, and dismissed as annoyances by the people they elected to serve their interests... The men and women in Congress have great health insurance while Obamacare is imposed on the folks back home and they cannot afford it. Their doctors cannot afford it. Obama still talks as though he did American citizens a favor! He did not. He has been increasingly despotic, going around Congress to regulate more and more aspects of all our lives.

Conservatives have never marched or rioted when they have lost an election. Never. But the left can be counted on to do so when offended by anything they can define as a grievance against their "group," such as the votes of others with which they disagree. These protests are not spontaneous, as anyone who read the Podesta emails and watched the O'Keefe videos knows. They are planned and paid for, by Soros, ANSWER, etc. – far-left trolls like those in Ferguson, who, with Soros dollars, launched the thuggish Black Lives Matter group, so affectionately embraced by Hillary Clinton.

Since the 1920s, it has always been leftists who fomented and promoted violence as a means to their endgame... Anarchy is and has always been a strategy of the progressives to make civilized people fear them. Trump voters finally had enough and voted for a new direction, and we are seeing riots in the streets organized by radical, anti-democratic groups. One can assume they want to make people regret their votes for Trump, but they are only making them more certain they made the right choice.
