I'm just going to let Scottie Nell Hughes, Tea Party shill and self-proclaimed Trump supporter, speak for herself here. Because God knows, we don't want to suppress "the voice of the people," even when that voice says incredibly stupid, irresponsible things.

Wolf, I'm very proud. My grandfather was one of the organizers of the 1968 Democratic convention, and one of those folks. And I guarantee you right now if he was still alive I think he'd be very proud of my involvement with Mr. Trump.

But you have to understand the motivation of the riot here. It's not because people aren't getting their voices heard. It's because the people's voice would be ignored in this case.

The majority, the plurality, the people, the majority of the population have voted for Mr. Trump. And the obvious moves that will be made by the establishment Republican Party to keep him from this nomination, that right there would cause anger. And that would be an obvious backhand to all the people who have been paying attention and who have been engaged in this political process.

So you know, riots aren't necessarily a bad thing if it means we're fighting the fact that our establishment Republican party has gone corrupt and decided to ignore the voice of the people and ignore the process.

According to RightScoop, Wolf gave her an opportunity to walk that part about the riots back, but she stuck to her guns, with slightly altered references to riots as "outbursts of emotion."

Speaking for me, I'll just say that it's ironic to see the blonde-haired blue-eyed lady from Nashville sing the praises of riots in the streets while I'm fairly certain she would have simply been horrified at the scenes coming from Baltimore and Ferguson.

We now live in times where up is down, fights are great, riots aren't bad things, and all that matters is the will of a few white people who are angry that they've lived in a country where an extraordinarily smart and talented Black guy has been president for 8 years.
