Protesters in LA are being warned not to block freeways or damage property as happened on Wednesday night when hundreds of people flooded onto the 101. But thousands of other protested peacefully on both nights.
Protesters are blocking highways in other cities, including Minneapolis where I-94 is currently shut down.
In Philadelphia hundreds gathered outside City Hall for a protest that was more sad than angry.
People passed Dixie cups holding candles in a vigil that organizers say was meant to provide a place to "mourn, grieve and be in community together."
Many protesters found relief in being together, in seeing that they were far from alone in their outrage and disappointment. Few seemed to believe that the protests would have an effect on Trump taking office, but they did believe it was important to speak up and show the depth of the anger many feel about Trump’s racist, sexist, and bigoted statements.
Meanwhile, Fox News has joined Trump in saying that these protests can’t be happening just because millions of people are outraged and or despondent.
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.
The Fox News story comes complete with pictures of buses that were supposedly used to bring in those professional posters, and points out a Craigslist ad … yeah, a Craigslist ad, looking for “full time activists.”
“WTF, @georgesoros busing in & paying #protestors to destroy cities is domestic #terrorism. #fakeProtests #BlueLivesMatter have tough days,” read one tweet in response to the viral picture of buses in Austin.
It’s a post fact world. We just live in it. Allegedly.
