"Not my President" is indeed a sign of an anti-democratic movement within the left

Reader comment on item: Popping Linda Sarsour's Balloon

For that matter, the angry-anguished crowds which spilled onto the streets to protest the results of the election signal a nascent anti-democratic movement. Then too, the words "not my president" were used. It's an assault on democracy. Ineffectual for the time being. You can be sure that if the Democrats had won and angry/anguished crowds would have spilled into the streets to 'protest', sometimes breaking windows, sometimes saying "not my president", that CNN's headline would have been "Democracy under threat!". But they support left-wing anti-democracy activists.

A good immigration policy for muslim countries, is one in which someone like Sarsour doesn't wind up in the West.
