“Trump’s a fascist,” say protesters outside DeploraBall

Lauren SouthernArchive

As part of my coverage of Donald Trump's election, I talked to "antifa" protesters outside the pro-Trump celebration known as the DeploraBall. Between dodging eggs, I asked them why there were there and why they were against Trump.

Jan, that is my hope. I think people understand that no matter how large a protest, these people do NOT speak for the average American. I think as they watch more and more of this meltdown it will turn them off the Democratic party. The wisest thing Democrats should do is distance themselves from the nuttiness.

I am getting sick of this òld white man chant. It is starting to sound very bigoted and even racist. As far as the protests, the only message I see is anarchism. It`s only day 4 people! My God. All he is done is sign three pieces of paper, and the snowflakes are melting.

But you know what is good about this? If you read many of the youtube comments made by people who had voted Democrat, they have now had a change of heart and admit they were wrong in their decision.

Dave T well said, but the true fascists will not get your point.
People not bowing down to progressive dictators is not fascism , it is the opposite.
These idiots are played like fiddles and easily influenced then they are upset that someone gets rich from making them think they have to have whatever product is being sold. YEESH!

To fully understand this conflict which is basically the West WW3 you need to understand r/K selection theory, here is a link to a youtube video by the Guru `The Truth About Gene Wars: r/K Selection Theory` by Stefan Molyneux Dont believe the hype until you know the the full story, this is the start of a inter cultural war that could easily get out of control as everything is at stake and if the Liberals win the West will fall, just take a look down the road that America has taken and expect the same in the EU if the Conservatives get organized.

What the regressive left does not understand is that the forward right has caught up with their tactics, hence they are confused and insulted when confronted.

Ms. Gunn-Reid being assaulted and the video going viral making it known that Bews Spews is a woman hitter, as well as hitting him with a civil suit.

Mr. McKinnis showing he knows one or two things about street fighting.

Ms. Southern and Ms. Goldy not backing down.

Infowars, Project Veritas, etc.

The good guys have caught up and surpassed in tactics.

No wonder the regressive left hate Trump.

The word most used in the leftist vocabulary is “because” . You challenge them on any issue they are blabbering senselessly about and their answer is “well because”. Why do you call Donald Trump a fascist? Well because. Because why? Why do you call him a fascist. Well because he just is. Remarkable stupidity.
A few can blurt out the usual old and tired sentences they have been fed by their Soros handlers. We want social justice. Oh, really. What is social justice? Well because it isn’t fair. And what is fair? Social justice. Circular reasoning perectly presented to these fools with the only intent and the only result is to show mass numbers assembled for no defined purpose except anarchy.

Lauren, you look stunning in your deplora ball gown – a pleasant contrast with the ugliness (physically and intellectually) you were facing.

I think you have recorded a seminal truth of the demented left, given in a Freudian slip by the one goof you actually forced to think in an honest introspective way – He wants Trump to fail because he doesn’t want to be wrong about him – on a wider scope every deluded fool there must go through with their degrading theatrics because they don’t want the deluded sxxt they believe to be proven wrong.

Essentially you are dealing with a cult, with cult-like programming in some self-destructive ideology – they see the error of their beliefs almost daily ( they know Trump and you and Gavin and Faith et al are NOT Nazis and there is no chance of a Nazi state) so they must live in denial to remain faithful to that cult belief.

I don’t know what is best with cult-like trances – psychological cult deprogramming or the ice cold shock of a fire hose – lean towards the latter

Peter said, “The socialists in Canada hated Harper but did not have a bloody clue why. They could not string together a sentence that explained what they hated about Harper.”

It was disturbing to me that people with whom I spoke were the same. They would just say that it’s time for a change, Harper has to go! These were some nice everyday Canadians and I still can’t understand what blinded them that they would so fiercely demand change out of the blue, for no apparent reason.

The only honest one was the guy who said he didn’t want [Trump] to be right.
Some people will disagree, even though they know they are not right, but simply because they do not want you to be right. As a result, they are competitive, passive/aggressive and insecure=bully.
It’s called Pride.

Its long past to late to help most of these left wing nuts.

@ Dave T

Good one, Dave!

There is no accounting for stupidity.

The socialists in America and Canada are the biggest fools on the planet. They believe the lie that Trump is a fascist but cannot explain why. All we hear is “build a wall”, but the idiots cannot explain how building a wall along the Mexican/US border is fascist or racist.

The socialists in Canada hated Harper but did not have a bloody clue why. They could not string together a sentence that explained what they hated about Harper. All that ever came out is “Duffy”, as if somehow Harper was responsible for Duffy’s actions.

It is true. Socialists are brain dead. They cannot think for themselves.

And then they become violent, always violent, hateful and destructive …

So people who riot, destroy, obstruct traffic and physically block and threaten law-abiding citizens going about their business are protesting about “Fascists”. Riiiiight…

The concept of “irony” is obviously lost on the Left…

Someone else (?) said it:
“Ladies, if you shout “fascist” at the President and don’t get arrested, then he isn’t a fascist.”

Says it all — he doesn’t want TRUMP to succeed , cause he doesn’t want him to be RIGHT

The irony escapes these activists accusing Trump of being a Hitler, a fascist, and yet their violent actions bare all the hallmarks of Hitler’s Storm Troopers or Brownshirts, a whose methods of violent intimidation played a key role in Adolf Hitler’s rise to power.
Seven years ago former “Saturday Night Live” comedienne Victoria Jackson released a YouTube video with the shocking observation: “There’s a Communist Living in the White House.” The day after the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th president, she’s back with a new song – “There’s a Capitalist Living in the White House.”:
