Actually, your issue is assuming I'm not aware of that, but thank you for your presumptions... I work in data analysis and have a background in macro policy analysis, so it might behoove you to not assume anything... You are right that there are some problematic people who look down on rural or small town folks. But there are also rural folks who try to project anti urban stereotypes.

See, this is part of the problem.
You up there on your island are so insular that you forget there is an entire country that doesn't think and/or live like you do.
A lot of people in New York think of them with contempt as somehow less, but really, the only difference is that you folks live in a city and we live in the country, but pack us together and there are still more of us.

So most of these protestors are apparently saying they are Bernie supporters. So now that bernie supporters are back to bashing Trump, they are worth covering indepth by the main stream media.
Remember when Bernie supporters were protesting at the Democratic convention. See the main stream media didn't feel like that was worth covering. But now these Bernie people need to be heard.
Glad to see the MSM hasn't been shamed into changing their tactics.

We haven't had 8 years of liberal policies. We've had 8 years of a democrat president and most of that time with an obstructionist congress where very little liberal policies have actually gotten done.
Obamacare? That was created by a conservative, and then conservatives hated it just because Obama made it.
Bailing out the banks? That's hardly a liberal wealth distribution policy.
TPP and TTIP? Not liberal.
Obama was interventionist, hardly what you would consider a "liberal" trait.
What specific policies have been particularly liberal? Anti-gun rhetoric? That thing that's not policy but just words? Obama refusing to say "Islamic terror", again, the kind of thing that is rhetoric and not policy.
The only things that come to mind are the climate change agreement and the deals with Iran and Cuba.
These protests are huge

And vice versa. Trump was crying about the election being rigged right up until Election Day!! Funny how Trump and his supporters have shut up about now that he's won.
And ironically enough, Trump supporters have already been arrested for voter fraud but of course the conservative camp is quiet about that too.
