Your privilege, like my privilege, lets me effectively ignore the racist, homophobic and xenophobic talk that was the cornerstone of the Trump campaign. No matter what games you like to play here you can't deny it was there. And it scares a lot of people. Because we're not effected, that we're not worried about being targeted, or worried about being marginalized or having rights taken away, we can sleep easier at night. Being black, gay, a woman or muslim right now and accepting the rhetoric that got the Orange in Chief elected is hard. I have friends and co-workers in all of those categories and they're all worried or downright afraid for many valid reasons. Most of which aren't orange, but are those that supported the Cheeto Mussolini and took it as a referendum on white male dominance.

I admit that I don't feel the same sense of urgency and despair about this election as others do, but that's no reason to deny them their voice and marginalize their efforts to be heard. The message that the orange ran on needs to be opposed. The protests serve to fuel our legislators to act. And serve to shout through the bubble that Trump obviously hasn't been able to look past (just read interviews, all the signs of ignorance are there).

Edit: There's a huge difference between the shouts of hitler Obama and hitler Trump. The difference being that those that tried to compare Obama to hitler made large leaps and twists to make the comparison. Trump gave us everything we needed to neatly put the two together.

There are millions of black, gay, and woman voters who elected Trump. I realize that the climate in your exceptionally blue region is anti-Trump.  I also realize that historically, fear, uncertainty and doubt are what those who object employ as their protest tools. 

Eight years ago, there were people who were "worried or downright afraid for many valid reasons" too. Or valid to them, anyway.  You seem to think that their reasons are invalid while yours are valid. Funny, that.
So, basically, we're coastal elites who have no idea what life is like in the "real America." Got it.  Wtf

You clearly are surprised by the election results, maybe you are mote like you describe than you care to admit.  Shrug

No, I wasn't surprised by the election results. Disappointed, yes, but I understand why people voted for Trump. Salute
