Thousands protest election results in the streets of San Francisco

"Trump says get back, we say fight back!"

Hundreds of San Franciscans gathered at Powell Street on Wednesday evening for an anti-Trump rally, following last nights election results. Protest initiated by A.N.S.W.E.R Coalition, a national anti-war organization with chapters in cities across the United States, saw dozens of high school and college students emerge from Powell BART station yelling “Fuck Donald Trump!”

Protestors marched down from Market Street to Castro with chants that varied from “Trump says get back, we say fight back!” and  “No Trump! No KKK! No racist USA!”. Nearly two thousand people are currently out on the streets in San Francisco to protest the results of the election an outcome they say they refuse to accept.

Since last night, talks of reuniting americans and reaching out to the dismayed have resonated from President-elect Donald Trump to Secretary Clinton. In her concession speech Secretary Clinton urged her supporters to accept that Mr. Trump would be president. “We owe him an open mind and a chance to lead,” she said.

Earlier this morning President Obama emphasized on the need to stay united: “Everybody is sad when their side loses an election,” the president declared. “But the day after, we have to remember that we’re actually all on one team. This is an intramural scrimmage.”

    I didn’t vote for Hillary, but I was out there tonight, because neither candidate shares my values. This election should be a huge wakeup call for establishment Democrats and liberals. If they can learn the lessons from this campaign and look at what they did wrong, I’m happy to stand and fight with them.

    On a larger level, though, I’m not sure unity is what we need as a country. There’s a part of me that has thought for a long time that the political differences in this country are just too big to bridge. Maybe it’s better to break up (hopefully more like Czechoslovakia than like Yugoslavia). There’s a group calling for California secession, and I don’t think it’s a bad idea. We’d be the 6th largest economy in the world, and we can govern ourselves the way we see fit, and the rest of the country can live the way they want to live.

    Where was the rage and protesting months ago when it was apparent Hillary was stealing the election from Bernie?

      Yes, and where was the rage during all the wars? I was out there with millions protesting Bush’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. But where did all those millions go when Obama continued those same wars and added new ones in Libya and Syria?
