Projection is not just a river in Egypt.
People’s predictive power is based on what they’re familiar with. Who are we more familiar with than ourselves and our group? We don’t really imagine the left going on a rampage, setting things on fire, etc etc, even with all the evidence we’re usually surprised at what sets them off. They imagined us doing those things if Trump lost, or if he won, the next stage up of the brown shirts being organized into storm troopers. We don’t imagine that of ourselves, and it is unlikely their prediction would hold for a Trump loss. But, he won.. and surprise surprise, well organized socialists are rioting and setting things on fire. Almost as though they were predicting our behavior through the lens of what they would like to do themselves in our place. Weird, huh?
And where are the Democrats trying to stop people destroying property and threatening lives in their names?

Somebody has some denouncing to do. And I don’t think it’s Trump.
I don’t think the Democrats WANT to stop the rioting. It serves their purpose very well. It sends a message that if you don’t kowtow to their way of thinking then you risk having your property or your life snuffed out.
Remember back when CA was voting on gay marriage the left published the names and addresses of those who gave money to organizations opposed to it. Those people were then publicly shamed, some had their businesses destroyed, some were assaulted, and one CEO was forced to resign.
Remember when Bill Schmalfeldt fancied himself and investigative reporter serving the left and he would routinely threaten people to give him information?
It’s what the left has found works well for them. Assault, threaten, and destroy to get your way.
And yet, for the most part, rioters destroy their own towns and businesses. If they had any sense, they’d go to the nice (aka, rich, likely Republican) parts of town and destroy those businesses. But I doubt they’d be allowed to run wild if they disturb the lawn of the mayor’s golfing buddy.
