Never had I seen a country where the losing side would agitate with the avid support of the media against a newly elected party, which had been out of power for EIGHT LONG YEARS! The last eight years saw a person belonging to a 12% minority as the President of the USA, who in his first victory speech didn’t mention Martin Luther King – as grave an error as Joshua not making a mention of Moses when he set foot into the land of Canaan. In my country the largest minority has 18% of its population, yet had never come anywhere within the sight, forget striking distance, of making it to the top political job – either thru an organisation or in his/her own name.
Yet we think that the whites are still treating the blacks and the Latinos badly. Blacks would have a history of enslaved immigrant but the Latinos are escapee migrants from a neighbouring country! Rightly, the citizens had voted a black for the reason that people felt they were correcting a historically unjustified harm inflicted by their forebears, but the Democrats I presume have allowed themselves to believe that they had done it for some principles of Liberal-ism!
The Democrats voted for a black, but that wouldn’t have carried Obama to the White House, it was the whites who voted him to power, but being a dwindling majority- down to 62% from 72%, during the last bit one elections!
Now, the resentment whether it is Trump’s likely conflict of interest with his business or his strident position against the Latinos, is not clear, but never has a Democracy been undermined ever, as the protests against Trump, the winner of a democratically conducted elections, fairly with no allegations of rigging by anyone.
Yet they are not Liberal enough to accept a verdict returned by the majority- as defined under its Constitution!
