You could count on this“unrest” intensifying around each presidential election cycle. Until 2016 the political “protests” generally consisted of either economic and social justice inequity, like Occupy Wall Street, or police brutality towards black men (led by BLM) such as we saw in New York, Baltimore and Ferguson. Following the 2016 election of President Trump, which was pretty unpopular with entitled progressives everywhere whether they bothered to vote against him or not, a third type of “protest” emerged which can be called simply “anti-Trump.” These protests evolved around progressives projecting their secret sins - racism, sexism, homophobia and general misanthropy – unto the President.
