For some reason, the United States media and the Obama Administration find that it is a good thing when mass mobs of humans go and protest, march, and create riots with civil unrest, and violence with local police forces. The reality is we wouldn’t allow that in our own country, so it’s hard to say why we are promoting it in another.
