Is it just me or have you also noticed that Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and President Obama have been silent about the protests?

The very people who have the power to stop these protests and riots with just a few well-spoken words have been completely silent on the issue.


Hillary Clinton

During her concession speech, Clinton said, “We must accept this result, and then look to the future. … Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.”

After that, she has been mum on the entire thing.

Hillary Clinton could have asked her followers to stop this nonsense, and they probably would have listened out of respect for her. (Misplaced respect but that’s a whole different article.) Instead, her silence makes me think that she is hidden away, relishing the chaos. That she has done nothing to attempt to calm the situation underlines the fact that she was not fit to govern. A leader would look out for the best interests of a country they love, rather than watching from afar to apply balm to her wounded ego.

Instead, her Twitter is full of Bible quotes (huh?) and mentions nary a word about the protests. It has not been updated since the day after her failed bid.

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders, the one from whom the Democratic primary was fraudulently stolen, the one who backed up Hillary Clinton anyway, has also been uncharacteristically silent, especially for an aging peace-and-love hippie kind of guy.

Even in his essay for the NY Times yesterday, entitled “Where Do Democrats Go From Here?” he did not gently suggest to his supporters that they turn toward peace. He had the opportunity, the platform, and the love from his followers, and his choice to remain silent tells me that he is just as self-serving as the other politicians, despite his humble, grandfatherly demeanor.

President Obama

Then there’s the President, who met cordially with TrumpHis Twitter account is likewise mute on the subject of vandalism, arson, and violence in reaction to the election.


Note to President Obama: I didn’t like it when you were elected either, but I burned neither flags nor effigies. I peacefully dissented throughout your administration but never damaged one single item of property. You screwed the middle class with your horrible health care catastrophe, and yet no one rioted in the streets when you were re-elected to screw us for another four years.

Obama’s only statement of semi-support was on Wednesday, when he said, ““The peaceful transfer of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy. We’re actually all on the same team.”

His statement about the riots was via his press secretary.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, asked Thursday about the protests, said the president believes the right to free speech should be protected.

He added, “It is a right that should be exercised without violence.  And there are people who are disappointed in the outcome. And the president’s message in the Rose Garden was it’s not surprising that people are disappointed in the outcome, but it’s important for us to remember, a day or two after the election, that we’re Democrats and Republicans, but we’re Americans and patriots first.”

This won’t end well.

Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s campaign manager, sees it the same way. She has called on Obama and Clinton to address the violence, but thus far, her request seems to have fallen on willfully deaf ears.

Not accepting the result and keeping up the protests will lead to nowhere except more trouble as the contagion of anger spreads. It is only a matter of time before it really gets out of hand and people start dying.

Since protesters are now actually calling for war and death, if Obama, Clinton, and Sanders really loved America, these three would use their influence to ease the transition and call for peace. Instead, one must wonder if the rumors about a Soros-funded, Clinton-approved Purple Revolution to destabilize America are about to become our new reality.

Oh – and one quick note. It has to be said.

The people calling for war and death are overwhelmingly anti-gun.

They just might want to rethink the wisdom of directing their death threats, physical attacks, and aggression toward Second Amendment proponents.

      Trump has devided the country spewing his egotistical lies. Now you want Hillary to fix it with a few chosen words! She won the popular vote by millions but is not our president elect. What makes you think she can fix the mess Trump has manifested without being our next president? Why aren’t you calling for the President elect himself to fix his mess? He does not want to, or he doesn’t know how! The short interview of Trump and the President after there meeting said it all. Trump is a broken lost man right now. He looked totally shell-shocked! In no way did he resemble a man that was victorious, A man eager and excited to take on the Presidency. No quite the opposite! He looks defeated and scared. Trump needs to do the bigest most important thing he’ll ever do, a dress the people of our country asking for tolerance, finding common ground and understanding as he announces he is stepping aside for the good of our country and guides his supporters to respect his decision in passing the position of President to Hillary Clinton. That this is his enlightened, insightful decision as he believes it’s whats best for the country at this time as well as the people in it and the world. He has broken all the rules thus far, let this be the biggest and most selfless of all in history for the good of the people…

    And what is the point of this article except to incite further hate and negativity? You have painted them as evil… for goodness sake, they are most probably completely exhausted and now have to get over their personal and professional loss and extreme disappointment, they just lost what they’d put their blood, sweat, tears, heart and soul into for a very long time. The campaign is over, give them a break.

    Hillary and Obama should speak up because they’re responsible for the cheating of Bernie. Bernie had nothing to do with the stupid, arrogant Dems putting up the most distrusted, disliked candidate in history. They should be apologizing to America for their dishonest cheating that led to this.
