When do the left always protest whenever they lose a democratic election? Do they not like democracy?
- In 2016, the British voted for Brexit in the referendum.
RESULT = Massive protests by the left.
- Also in 2016, Trump wins the US election.
RESULT = More lefty protest (some violent)
- In 2018, Democrats took back the House of Representatives.
RESULT = No protests by anyone on the right. We simply got on with it.
- In 2019, Boris Johnson gets another huge win and mandate for Brexit in the British elections.
RESULT = More lefty protests, some violent.
Why can't they ever just accept they lost and get on with their lives?

What we are wondering is how to rescue folks like you from the Russian disinformation campaign that has taken over your mind. Perhaps you are a good person and possibly you are a fellow American.
How can we reach you with facts so that you will rejoin us and help us fix our country's problems?

Because they love the country. Accepting what Trump had proposed -- especially the border wall -- would have hurt the country too much. The reason the farms are still producing food, for now, is because the border wall hasn't been built.

Freedom of speech. It feels better than sitting on your behind or whining in the pub

The US does not have a true democracy. We have a representative form of government. === Unfortunately, most of the time the re[resentatives do not represent the people but only represent themselves. Sell themselves to big business for 'donations' (really vaguely disguised bribes) so they vote for what the business wants.

rightttttttt rightttttttttttttt...............just like you all calmly accepted Obama's election. and didn't call for his impeachment, on trumped up Birther idiocy, before he was even sworn into OFFICE........you wanted to IMPEACH him, before he had a done a damn thing yet.
That's your idea of calmly accepting the results?
What you just wrote is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read. At no point in your rambling, incoherent "question" were you close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this site is now dumber for having read it. May God have mercy on your soul.

You must be young and missed the Obama administration. Does the Tea party ring any bells, Obamacare protests, Unite the Right with white supremacists?

I have ,unfortunately , to admit there is a lot of truth in your position -- that the liberal -left have gradually adopted the position of being unwilling to accept election results .
Non of us like losing elections ,and as losers , we invariably think the result completely wrong and irrational ,but we have always accepted the result --- because we are democrats first ,and accept that winning and losing is fundamental to being a democracy .
But in recent years , the liberal - left ,have slowly adopted the position that any view but their own is either naïve or wicked -- that it cannot be allowed to stand , but overturned by whatever means .
They have become as dangerous to our democracy as the far right is .

No. Look at Clinton failure. They had it rigged for it with many foreign country's donating to her slush Clinton Foundation

Sure they like democracy, when people vote for their candidates.
