(Before It's News)

Even Chris “Tingles” Matthews and one of his guests get it that the moonbats throwing postelection tantrums in the streets have no validity:

“What kind of a statement is it really there to make?” Matthews asked. “They lost.”

“Look it’s their First Amendment right,” Karine Jean-Pierre of MoveOn.org said. “The country is grieving. Something happened on Tuesday night that people were not anticipating. Donald Trump.”

“Regarding these protesters, by the way, these protesters are not exercising their First Amendment rights. They have every right to speak. They don’t have a right to stop traffic. They don’t have a right to get in the way of commerce. That’s not the First Amendment. That’s being a spoiled brat. And by the way, what are they protesting democracy itself when they block traffic? We had an election,” guest Steve Cortez, a Trump supporter, said.

Democracy itself, or rather our democrat republic, is exactly what they are protesting.

For both conservatives and progressives, democracy is not an end but a means. For conservatives, the end is the defense of the rights enshrined in the Constitution. For progressives, it is an authoritarian collectivist agenda.

Since a better means of defending the Constitution than democratic elections has yet to be discovered, conservatives are not eager to throw the electoral process overboard when it doesn’t go their way. Progressives are another matter.
