He of course modestly buried that near the end. https://t.co/QO1ioD3IQR— David Freddoso (@freddoso) January 21, 2017
On Friday thousands of protestors gathered in Washington, D.C. to protest the peaceful transition of power from one democratically-elected president to another. And it got ugly quickly.
...But while the media certainly gave them plenty of attention, the protestors probably won't win much sympathy....
When words failed them though, protestors turned to rioting. Wearing black face masks, they smashed the windows of Starbucks, Bank of America, and a Bobby Van's steakhouse a few blocks from Capitol Hill. Private business didn't suffer all the damage, though. Suddenly enemies of public transport, liberal rioters trashed at least one bus stop—an indicator of the aimlessness of the whole thing.
These protests can best be described as the opposite of the Tea Party movement....
Riots gain attention while protests send a message. On the right, the Tea Party helped build a movement that swept Republicans into power. For the left, this display's more likely to spark backlash, if it does anything at all.

Why does everyone hate media? Compare "conservative obstruction" narrative to "progressive resistance" narrative and there's your answer.— Varad Mehta (@varadmehta) January 22, 2017
