The Rest of the Story: Anti-Trump Protests Packed With Profanity, Crude Signs

From the MacIver Institute:

In Milwaukee’s Red Arrow Park and on State Street in Madison, demonstrators gathered Thursday night to protest Tuesday’s election results and the victory of President-elect Donald Trump.

The MacIver Institute documented both events, which featured mostly peaceful protesters carrying a variety of signs – some vulgar – and filling the streets with chants littered with profanity. Thanks to reporting by the mainstream media, however, most Wisconsinites saw only a gathering of families and concerned citizens expressing their opposition to the President-elect.

WISN-TV’s broadcast coverage of the protest in Milwaukee reported that, “Mothers and fathers took their young children to demonstrations to see peaceful protests in action…as they walked west on Wisconsin (Street) and across downtown, they hoped the image of people from different faiths, backgrounds, and generations would send a message of solidarity.”

Missing from their reporting were the not-so-family-friendly signs and chants that permeated the event.
