If you think it seems like there is a leftist protest happening every single day, you are only incorrect in that there are MANY leftist protests every single day in America. Whether it is antifa teaming up with Planned Parenthood to lobby for the “rights” of criminal foreign invaders, or a “die-in” to oppose the elimination of Obamacare’s death panels, or whatever, we are living in the age of eternal rioting protesting over anything and everything that is non-leftist, and also things that were supported by the left until someone on the right agreed with it. Protesters litter, block traffic, get violent, and destroy other people’s property, all in the effort to – well, your guess is as good as mine as to what they think they will accomplish with this nonsense, but the bottom line is that they are a bunch of gutless cowards and spoiled red diaper babies.

There is a site, called Resist and Protest, where you can find daily listings of leftist agitation plans. Here is a sampling of what is going on today and tomorrow:

In Minneapolis, Minnesota, it’s Russia! Russia! Russia! with a protest to demand an investigation of Republicans’ alleged buddying up with the Russians to derail Hillary’s coronation as queen in 2016, or something. Funny how all my life I used to hear lefties praise Russia while trashing the United States, and now Putin is the boogeyman and conservatives are soviets?

Elk River, Michigan: Honk if you’re horny! if you hate alternatives to Obamacare! Protesters will be at an overpass trying to get attention from people who are going on fishing trips, or something:

Bring flags. Bring signs. Bring enthusiasm!

Spread the word that fishing opener is a great time to reach thousands of Minnesotans as they head north. Encourage other groups to do this on pedestrian overpasses across the metro area and the state! Tell your local media that you’ll be there, and invite them!

I’m pretty sure those won’t be American flags, unless they intend to burn them.

More from Minnesota, this one in Saint Paul, a “unity march“, against divisiveness, where they claim to be for “ALL” people – unless of course those people are Christian, white non-commies, or in support of enforcement of existing laws. Here is a challenge for DaTechGuy readers, spot how many things are incorrect or insane about the messaging these activists are putting forth:

We have all raised awareness as individual groups, from each civil rights group, to community awareness issues. While each group has their success in what they have done, I would like to bring all groups together to stand in solidarity and raise awareness that we are united, as Trump likes to claim “Make America Great Again”. America IS Great when we are UNITED. While we unite our respective groups, we have not tried uniting our groups together and standing to raise awareness that we ALL matter. All groups, all ages, all genders, all races. The PEOPLE matter. As the motto of the United State goes “United We Stand, Divided We Fall”. Let us Unite, Stand, and Raise the Awareness that we are UNITED as the People of the State of Minnesota. We MATTER! We will March from the Capital to the Governors Mansion to raise this awareness and show the world we are going to be the first example of full unity.

Now that Obama is out of office, it is popular to be anti-war again. In Syracuse, New York, they are protesting today against funding for the Pentagon. Who needs national security when you have drum circles?

In Seattle, Washington, they are protesting today to demand that there be in increase in income taxes. Because everyone is going to have too much money what with the $15 minimum wage and all.

In Auburn, California, you can hear from young foreign invaders and make postcards to support non-enforcement of existing immigration laws. You are advised to bring a snack and non-alcoholic beverages.

Denton, Texas, is hosting a version of the “die-in” protest that actually might be a bit more interesting than the usual moaners laying about, because this one is a funeral procession with music, but they will still be laying around:

We would like to orchestrate a funeral procession and die-in at the square. We would like those that can play instruments to lead us. Sam Hobson, dressed as the Grim Reaper, will lead. Clay Thurmond is procuring a stretcher and a white body bag. He has a flag that we can drape over the body and then we can attach a toe tag to the toe. We who aren’t playing instruments or carrying coffins will carry cardboard tombstones with cause of death because of TrumpZombieCare. In fact, we could be zombies – that is open to discussion. After we march around the square, we will gather and “die” and lay there for at least 10 minutes. The goal is to make a dramatic statement about the current bill that the house passed and send a strong message to Burgess.

Tomorrow, May, 13, is no less #resist filled.

New York, New York: Protest against funding for the Dakota Pipeline, because “injustice”:

Divestment can put an end to the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) just as boycotts have effectively ended injustices, like South African apartheid, in the past. We CAN choose to bank ethically instead of with the big banks funding DAPL and other highly destructive projects.

Seattle and San Franciscio recently divested billions of dollars’ worth of transactions from DAPL-funding banks, and Mayor De Blasio recently came out in support of divesting NYC’s pensions from offending banks.

Let’s build momentum for city- and state-wide divestment by closing our own accounts on May 13th!

If you are in Pensacola, Florida, and someone is knocking on your door, they might just be there on behalf of the Democrats.

Near me, in Hyde Park, NY, they will be harassing State Senator Sue Serino, because they want abortions, which are readily available to whoever wants them.

Oh look, a protest in support of the biased left-wing anti-Trump fake news media in New York City!

In Washington, DC, outside of the White House, another “science” protest tomorrow. For the children.

In Omaha, Nebraska, you can go and get protest training.

Lynchburg, Virginia is hosting a “Non-Welcoming” for President Trump. Because raaaaacism.

Nasty Women want abortions in Salt Lake City, Utah. It’s a “pop up art show”.

Is anyone else experiencing protest fatigue? I predict the endless protests will succeed in making normal people treat these demonstrations the way people who live near airports treat plane noise: they will eventually be ignored to the point where they won’t even be noticed at all anymore.

Some kind of mask at the Chicago Moons the Trump Tower rally two months ago

By John Ruberry

On Saturday, three days before the deadline to file 2016 federal income tax returns, there were a couple of dozen rallies across the nation that called for President Donald J. Trump to release his returns to the public.

The republic somehow managed to survive nearly 200 years before Richard M. Nixon, under pressure by the way, became the first president to release his federal tax returns.

Yesterday I worked. I was building my income for next year’s tax deadline date, so I cannot pass on my eyewitness observations on any of yesterday’s anti-Trump rallies. But as with another tax-related anti-Trump gathering, one that I did see in person, Chicago Moons the Trump Tower, according to media reports, there were many colorful costumes, including masks, as well as meticulously designed signs. Leftist rallies are part protest and part Mardi Gras. For the progs these festivals are nothing more than a way to blow off steam, and a less expensive method than a session at a shrink’s office, unless, of course, you spent a lot of money on your Trump mask with devil horns, bright orange hair, and a Hitler mustache.

The mainstream media, that is the anti-Trump media, fawned over this springtime Festivus, unlike the dismissive tone they took with the 2010 Tax Day Tea Party rallies, which were arguably the halcyon moment of the Tea Party movement, that is, until Trump’s election last year.

“Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over,” Trump tweeted this morning. And yes the election is indeed over. Despite last year’s haranguing by the Democrats and their media allies, Trump still won the presidency even though he didn’t make his returns public. That bus left the station. Very few Americans passionately care about Trump’s tax returns, unlike such concerns as keeping more of their income.

But there is an upside to Saturday’s frivolities. At least those leftists who designed those striking Trump masks already have their Halloween costume in hand. Make Halloween Great Again.

As I’m writing this, many millions of people around the world are watching the Academy Awards. I know I’m not alone in “boycotting” the Oscars, though calling it a boycott is silly. It’s simply a choice. To say it’s a boycott is to belittle the efforts made by those who actually oppose the actions of organizations in sustained and systematic fashions. Like many Americans, I’m just deciding to do something else with my time.

I’ve ranted in the past about avoiding Hollywood. I didn’t watch the Golden Globes and I’ve called for conservatives to find entertainment alternatives, but this is a little different. The Oscars are the big show. It’s the one that is viewed around the world more than any other entertainment awards event. This year, people in other countries will watch the awards and will be able to come to only one conclusion: America hates its President and is falling apart as a result.

They don’t know the situation. Because they’re not bombarded with American news the way we are, their limited exposure means they have to form their conclusions from an incomplete data set. Watching the Oscars, they won’t realize that a large portion of Americans support President Trump. They’ll watch Hollywood liberal after Hollywood liberal bash Trump. They won’t hear a single one say anything positive about the President and if by some miracle they do (I don’t think Clint Eastwood or James Woods are winning anything this year), they’d hear the crowd throw out loud boos. This is Hollywood honoring Hollywood and disgracing the nation that gave them their opportunities.

I mentioned that what many of us are doing during the Oscars should not be called a boycott. If the ratings of this Academy Awards are low (which I doubt), it won’t faze any of them. The only way that they can be made to care about the absurdity of their liberal message is for their actual dollars to drop. That means it’s up to conservatives to stop watching. Sounds hard. It will be. Heck, I’m a movie fan. I moved out to the LA area because I wanted to get into the movie business a decade ago. Things change and I’m glad I didn’t follow through with that particular goal, but one thing is now clear to me. I cannot allow my hard-earned dollars to be used to promote the leftist agenda that spews forth from the people that Hollywood supports.

That’s not to say I won’t see any movies at all. I’m just going to be very selective. I’m going to support the stories that have conservative leanings. I’ll support directors and actors, few as they may be, who are unabashedly conservative. I’ll read more books, watch less television, and spend my downtime educating myself on YouTube with conservative and/or Christian messages.

In other words, I’m done with liberal Hollywood.

Leftists in Tinseltown will continue to embarrass our nation until we let them know that enough is enough. That doesn’t mean a Tweet or a blog post. The only way they’ll listen is if we hit them in their paychecks. The only way we can hit them in their paychecks is to stop spending portions of our paychecks to support them.
