Americans plan widespread protests if Trump interferes with election.

This is worth keeping near the top of the board!

"Dozens of activist groups who claim to represent millions of Americans from both political parties plan to hit the streets next week, if President Donald Trump appears to be interfering with vote counting or manipulating poll results after Election Day.

"The "Protect the Results" coalition of over 130 groups from Planned Parenthood to Republicans for the Rule of Law, has about 400 events protecttheresults.com planned to date. Participants are prepping to demonstrate "as early as the afternoon on Wednesday, November 4," the day after Election Day, and await a SMS message."

Here's the organizing group's website:

2. i'll leave my house for the first time in almost 8 months

to protest.

i feel like I'll just have to step outside my door, start yelling and pretty soon we'll be in the thousands upon thousands. I just don't think the people will stand for trump stealing a second term.

in the meantime i will check the link and share.

11. And how can that even be proven beyond doubt in one day?

If Trump actually "wins" by the numbers, with no clear proof of interference, even if there is a lot of circumstantial evidence, then what?

I really hope the streets are still filled. Because there is no way that Trump can win, at least fairly, just based on the polling now and for a year. And most likely the exit polls would show a Biden lead as well.

That is the most ugly scenerio. If Trump does "win", and folks get out on the street. And the pandemic will actually help Trump in that it will dampen the enthusiasm for congregating in large protests. And probably spread the virus more regardless. But also, Trump's terrorist militias will be energized and full of bravado with their semi-autos, while Fox News and RW media will be urging them on to help "maintain order"

10. And wear protective gear.

Besides masks they might want to have helmets, goggles (for tear gas and pepper spray protection), and first aid kits. Oxygen masks if they can get them. And protective vests. We know how Trump treats protesters.

8. You got that damn right. If these thugs try to interfere with the value of my vote and try to ...

dismiss my vote for the candidate of my choice and free will, then there will be hell to pay. And I suspect that a lot of people feel the way I do ...

18. a foregone conclusion

Is it necessary to point out here that many people are convinced that obstruction and manipulation are already underway? One must assume that events have already triggered these protest -- and thus Nov. 4th is already on.
