Somehow the left's big slogan “when they go low, we go high” did NOT cover its reaction to losing the election pic.twitter.com/1INNEa57TB

I’m not sure Democrats understand the concept of the “high road”
(Fox News) Police in Portland, Ore. declared that a once peaceful protest was a riot after demonstrators were seen attacking drivers and committing acts of vandalism during their march against Donald Trump’s election Thursday night.
Portland police said at least 29 people were arrested in the riot and that more information would be given on the charges Friday morning.
According to KPTV, one driver had her windshield smashed and someone painted “Capitalism kills” on a nearby convenience store. Police declared the protest a riot at around 8:30 pm. A riot is a Class C felony in Oregon.
There were plenty of other cities, ones primarily run by Democrats, which have seen violence since Wednesday, and the “protests” do not seem to be letting up.
(WTVD) Reports of anti-Trump and even Nazi graffiti have emerged after tens of thousands of demonstrators in cities across the country took to the streets Wednesday night to protest President-elect Donald Trump‘s unexpected victory.
On Wednesday morning, just hours after Trump was declared the 45th president of the United States, the emblem of the Nazi Party was found spray-painted on the glass window of a building in South Philadelphia. The graffiti also included the words “Seig Heil 2016” as well as the word “Trump” with the T replaced by another swastika, according to the Philadelphia Police Department. (Snip)
In Virginia, hundreds of protesters shut down several streets in Richmond, where several Civil War and Confederate monuments were defaced with graffiti. The words “Your Vote Was a Hate Crime” were spray-painted on the Jefferson Davis monument and the Matthew Fontaine Maury statue, while the words “F— Trump, F— KKK” were found on the Robert E. Lee monument, according to local ABC affiliate WRIC. Donald Trump disavowed David Duke‘s support of his candidacy earlier this year, and last week, his campaign issued a statement that he “denounces hate in any form” while also disavowing support by a major Ku Klux Klan newspaper.
And there’s plenty more of this nationwide, as well.
Of course, the concept of the high road was being perpetuated when Democrats thought they were going to win easily. When that didn’t happen, Dems reverted back to their default state: violence, outrage, vandalism, etc. Telling employees who are Trump supporters to resign (and walking it back to avoid lawsuits). At least one of the “hate crimes” committed by a supposed Trump supporter against a Muslim has been proven to be a hoax.
With the weekend coming, we should expect this behavior to continue.
