“Rape Melania” Sign Raised at anti-Trump protest

“Rape Melania” Sign Raised at anti-Trump protest

Keep it classy, anti-Trumpers

As you may have noticed, half the country has lost its damned mind.

Case in point, this protester toting a sign advocating for the rape of president-elect Donald Trump’s wife, Melania:

The protest took place at Donald Trump’s new hotel in Washington, D.C. No one in the crowd seems to have objected to the sign.

Images don’t appear photoshopped as they appeared under various Twitter accounts from a variety of angles.

Twitter users across the political spectrum responded, decrying the crass signage. As a result “Rape Melania” began trending on the social media platform.

Callum Borchers for WaPo:

Many Twitter users who saw that “Rape Melania” was trending criticized the technology giant for not removing it from lists of most-discussed subjects. Responding to a Washington Post inquiry, Twitter emphasized that the phrase trended because people denounced it, not because people advocated sexual assault.

Does one protester represent the entirety of the anti-Trump temper tantrum? Of course not. We don’t even know who this person was. Buuuuutttt, if we play, “Imagine if a Republican ________ “, well, you know how that would end.

I am slightly encouraged that backlash against this particular ill-wisher was swift and bipartisan. Slightly.

They wanted it yanked because “Rape the First Lady” shows their true colors. Not because they care about rape.

Nothing by fine upstanding young people trying to express themselves like there role model Hillary. An armed society is a polite society. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the protest in San Antonio was not like this.

    Also note that after the election for only one day Milwaukee, WI had protests and then it was done. Mostly due to the fact that Sheriff Clark put some backbone into the City Mayor and Police chief by calling the Governor requesting state guard help right away. The out of state protest goons don’t seem to want to come back . 🙂

So dumb and stupid, they don’t realize that their tantrums are only helping get Donald Trump re-elected in 2020.

Yup. Someone wiser than me noticed these antics are only serving to reassure people that holding their nose to vote Trump was the right call all along.

This is the president-elect’s wife. Time for the Secret Service to step up and arrest these people.

Imagine someone with a ‘rape Michelle’ sign? (Of course, Michelle Obama is completely safe from anyone molesting her, unless the potential molester is deaf, blind and has no feeling in their hands.)

But, you see, the difference is that in their eyes it’s justified because Donald Trump is a vile human being; so therefore they can be a vile human being too…or something.

Well, one person held the sign. However, I’m surprised that no one pulled it down with extreme prejudice.

This sign DOES represent the entire anti-Trump movement.

If no one pulled it down, then everyone saw nno problem with it. The guys holding the coats while others beat you up are just as guilty

Basically what we’ve come to expect from Never Trumpers…

“Basically what we’ve come to expect from Never Trumpers”

That’s unfair. They may hate Trump, but they would never let their butthurt egos enjoy calls for the First Lady to be raped. I’m sure they will be along any moment now to express their outrage…

And not with the usual “I deplore this BUT…” equivocations.

Any minute now, just you wait and see…

Just a few – wait! You hear that? Told ya they –

Oh. My bad. Nevermind.

    Fascinating…

    a troll that uses “1984” as his manual.

      I’m sorry, did I interrupt you? You were saying something about how deplorable it is to wish rape upon the First Lady, simply because your candidate lost…right? Do go on….

      Or does your Butthurt Ego prevent you from extending any courtesy and decency to the wife of the man you loathe?

      Remember the Renounce Your Supporters! game you played with Trump? Your turn…

      I’ll let you play with yourself, troll.

      Tick, tock…
