Anyone can stand up, speak out
I read Dan Tabler’s “Writer’s Notebook” asking why people are protesting. I do not understand why he cannot see the purpose for protest.
The people Trump appointed to his cabinet to date is just one of the many reasons to protest. For him to assume that we should accept the behavior of a Trump’s candidacy and election is clearly from his lack of understanding of misogyny, racism, and bullying.
If he does not understand the postelection issues involved then I suggest he and everyone else take the time to read, listen, and explore news from several sources.
It is imperative that we explore and fact check statements from all candidates. I eagerly supported Hillary Clinton by listening to her and other candidates, and by exploring facts.
Discrimination is an enormous issue in the U.S. and as well in Queen Anne’s County. That alone is enough reason to protest this president elect. When you have alt-right, AKA Nazis (Richard Spencer) shouting “heil Trump” without a rational response from the president elect, you need to protest.
There’s a lot going on out in the world. To say that protests from those unable to vote is silly, I counter with: When is it OK to stand up for people’s rights? I suggest anyone can stand up and speak out. Even you. BRYON LUNA
