Anti-Trumpers Set To "Scream Helplessly At The Sky"

                Untold numbers of anguished leftists across the U.S. will be tilting their heads back and shouting towards the sky on November 8th to commemorate the anniversary of Donald Trump’s election. Well over 4,000 Facebook users in the Boston area alone have RSVP’d their intent to attend the “event” they’ve dubbed “Scream helplessly at the sky on the anniversary of the election,” while another 33,000 have expressed interest in attending the shout up at the 383-year-old Boston Common.
The park, founded in 1634, was where the Colonial militia mustered in the lead-up to the Revolution that ushered in the freest and most successful democracy the world has ever known. George Washington, John Adams and General Lafayette went there to celebrate America’s independence. Ironically, The Commons will now be the site of bitter, dependent, entitled, ignorant, intolerant fools expressing their anger at the current state of democracy by shrieking incoherently into the ether. In other words, their candidate lost. Grow up.
Johanna Schulman, an activist and one of the organizers of the scream meme, exclaimed to Newsweek: “This administration has attacked everything about what it means to be American. Who wouldn’t feel helpless every day? Coming together reminds us that we are not alone, that we are part of an enormous community of activists who are motivated and angry, whose actions can make a difference.”
This is nonsense. All of it. Though Trump can certainly be “unpresidential” at times, and occasionally appear to some to be a lout, he legitimately won the election and has done more in his first year at the nation’s helm to restore its mission, protect its citizens, and increase their economic opportunity than almost any other conceivable candidate. Moreover, Ms. Schulman, are you “helpless” folks gathering to “scream helplessly at the sky” in protest of The Scary One, or are you confident your “actions can make a difference?”
The late Jimi Hendrix- inadvertently- described these moron’s actions perfectly (okay, I changed one letter on one word):

Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
Excuse me while I diss the sky
