As lame as protesting the results of a presidential election in the United States might be, people have the right to do that.
They don't have the right to be violent and destroy property and cause injury.
A light bulb finally went on! Yes, these are lawless rioters. No, they are not "peaceful protesters." https://t.co/XxkLIcxU4R— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) November 11, 2016

These anti-Trump protests are just the latest outbursts from the professional rioting class.
Perry Chiaramonte writes:
With tens of thousands of people taking to the streets to protest Donald Trump’s presidential election victory, questions are swirling about whether the anger is as organic as advertised.
From coast to coast, demonstrators are burning flags and effigies of the president-elect while declaring that they refuse to accept Trump’s victory. But observers online are claiming that, in some cases, protesters were bused to the scenes - a telltale sign of coordination.
“Anti-Trump protestors in Austin today are not as organic as they seem,” one local in the Texas capitol tweeted Wednesday, along with photos offered as evidence.
Others claimed to have found ads posted on CraigsList in which a Seattle-based non-profit was soliciting “Full-Time Activists.”Trump weighed in on the riots:
“We are looking for motivated individuals who are seeking Full-Time, Part-Time, and Permanent positions,” reads a line from the ad from Washington CAN! posted on Wednesday.
Rumors have also been circulating that the new batch of anti-Trump protesters has been bankrolled by individuals like billionaire liberal activist George Soros and groups like Moveon.org.
Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 11, 2016
I agree with Michelle Malkin:
Why are u shocked? This is what anarchists do. Trump is just the latest pretext. Previously: Bush, WTO, OWS, Ferguson, [fill in the blank]. https://t.co/xtQHpNZg2y— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) November 11, 2016
