The series of demonstrations aimed at President Trump clearly illustrate just how arrogant and undemocratic are those on the liberal and hard left. They refuse to accept the results of democratic votes in both the UK and the USA, and continue to pretend that any results which do not accord with their prejudices are somehow invalid.
Those who voted for Brexit did not do so because they were uninformed or unintelligent, but because they had tired of rule by the bureaucratic dictatorship of Brussels, while the American electorate rejected Hillary Clinton, a product of the liberal elite, in favour of someone who put patriotism, and concern for the less well off of their countrymen, before the worship of globalisation. Those who claim that, as President Trump did not win the popular vote, his victory is illegitimate, ignore the fact that the electoral college is the method by which all American presidents have been elected and that, just as in this country, those living in areas heavily weighted in favour of a particular candidate may not bother to vote, which they may well have done if they knew that the result was determined by a straight headcount.
These people seek to silence anyone who disagrees with them and, if successful, would destroy democracy throughout the Western world.
