I have a feeling Trump supporters wouldn't be in the streets acting like spoiled brats had their candidate lost.

Completely disagree.

IMHO, if Trump had won the popular vote and still lost the election (as Hillary did), I think not only would his supporters be raising hell, but he himself would be calling for a revolution as he did 4 years ago when he thought Romney won the popular vote but lost due to the electoral college.

In 2012 Trump called for a revolution saying "The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy".

I mean, in some parts of the country, Trump supporters in the "Militia" were gearing up for civil war should he have lost.

So yah, I think not only his supporters but Trump himself would have been doing much worse if the election results were reversed.

Is that why people were talking about armed revolutions?

I guess some people think there is roses in their toilet.
Of course some supporters would be doing the same. Trump set them up for it with all the rigged election talk and then ironically lost the popular vote and it was the system that elected him.

I think at most we would have been talking about secession and the constitutional convention.

Heck, I know some conservatives who are *still* talking about the convention because they don't trust Trump.

I admit I'd like to see the first one be formed in my lifetime.

Didn't Trump refuse to say whether he would accept the results of the election?

The fear and death throws of the Muslim Brotherhoods power in the US is working to foment decent. It is a good sign that they are organizing civil unrest, brings their connections out in the open to be identified, targeted and removed by later investigation by a Trump administrations anti terror Justice system.

From what we have seen of Trump supporters at rallies (hating on minorities, media, etc, etc) then yes, probably if the result had gone against them. Certainly not all Trump supporters or even a majority but more than enough would have acted like petulant children.

I am not suprised by the reaction to his election though. Normally i would simply say "suck it up and get on with it" but the simple fact is that Trump has run a very nasty and divisive campaign, all up until the last week or so of the election process (when i actually thought he finally did rather well by actually sticking to policy ideas). When you have had over a year of division and hate though, you have to expect some serious backlash.

I am not saying it is right or desirable, simply that following this type of campaigning that it is inevitable. From the outside, i am not sure how you fix that now as the divisions that were superficial now appear deeply entrenched.

Hopefully, in future, US politicians will see that they don't want a repeat of this type of campaigning and will actually battle it out on policies rather than personalities. Sadly, i highly doubt it though......

It would depend if Trump would have accepted his loss or not.


Both sides have participants that have shown and are showing full-retard-mode. The ones that accept the outcome from both sides you won't hear that much because they are not screaming.

I am not sure what has happened to the world in recent years but it seems to have become acceptable for people to spit their dummies out when things don't go their way. Just like the petulant toddler who isn't allowed another sweet(candy)they yell and scream and kick knowing full well their protestations will fall on deaf ears.
We have had it all in the UK with the post Brexit fallout, and you are now getting it in the USA with the post Trump fallout.
What makes me laugh the most is that it is the Democrat supporters that are kicking up this massive stink because they lost a DEMOCRATIC vote.
Gone are the days when people seem to accept defeat graciously and I doubt they will ever return which in itself is a sad indictment of the way the world is going.

Lol you all act like Trump winning made things better already.

Trump terrorists planned on killing people regardless of who won.

Ahh come off it, voter fraud and armed militias were well established topics by Trump supporters way before the election.

So yes, a portion of people in the US were more than ready to take to the streets, armed no doubt.

Both sides have/had deplorables. People more than willing to "jump the gun" and act like little snowflakes in their own right.

The fundamental truth about snowflakes is that two are never the same. Ironically they tend to be hot-headed too.

Not exactly but that's the way some people took it. The subject came up about possible rigging and his stance was that if he suspected there was rigging he would contest the decision, as Hillary would if she suspected rigging. The MSM turned that into a hit piece about him not accepting the result if he lost.

What's most triggering to me is how Snowflake the right has become. Most of you should be banned from even using the word at this point.

I called informer a 'devils advocate' and he says I have no manners with some long speech about his father and living in London.

It's getting really old really fast with the hypocrisy of how 'special' some of you are atm.

That's a pretty bold claim. Care to give us a link the the "Trump Terrorists" and their murderous plans?

Just search ATS. It's honestly no surprise the Terrorism stories were muted.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

It's also not surprising there are terrorists that support Trump, specifically Southern Religious Radicals. Contain your shock. The KKK endorsed him, that almost feels like terrorism in it's own right for that to be acceptable.

Maybe he will help them change, "Yes-we-Klan!"

Ps. I like how you have 7 stars for asking for a source, when this story was on the front page of ATS for 5 days. 2 Keywords and Google is all it should have really taken.

You just can't make it up. It's like the Brexiteers voting for Sovereign rule and then kicking up a stink when Sovereign rule steps in and requires a vote to trigger article 50...

I hadn't read that. That was one group. Yes the KKK (and their ilk) are domestic terrorists but do you really believe every single KKK member voted Trump? That's like.saying every African American voted Clinton.

As for the front page part, I don't know about anyone else but I rarely look at the front page, I usually go straight to My ATS, then Recent, then New unless I'm looking for a specific thread for some reason.

The KKK isn't your "accepting" type of Cult. Yes I believe they mostly voted for Trump, if not all of them.

I believe UNQUESTIONABLY more KKK voted % for Trump than Blacks voted for Hillary.

You must not understand how a cult works to suggest they all follow diverse opinions.

I know a lot of people don't look at the Front page. This actually happens all the time.

It's the Front Page for a reason you know lol.

The thread was also 'green' and 'on fire' for a while, despite no one knowing about it.
