Why do you think most protesters and rioters are Democrats?

This is a serious question and I am interested in honest answers and a polite discussion. My liberal girlfriend gave me her reasoning which I thought was rather unique. I will be curious if someone matches her thoughts. I blame the current chaos on just getting over having the "great divider" as president for 8 years and the liberal media fanning the flames. I didn't see millions of protesters in the streets when Obama was re-elected and I know plenty of people like me were as disgusted with him as Democrats are with Trump. What does everyone else think?

Most of the violent protestors are spoiled brats raised by liberal spoiled brats. They naturally go left where chances are way-way better of getting their way, getting hand-outs, and cry with others like them till they get it.
If all else fails, they turn to violence.
This isn't really rocket science, is it?

Many of the hundreds of thousands of women marching in the million women march or whatever it was were probably grandmas. So not all the Anti Trump demonstrators are college age kids.

If someone agrees with my girlfriend about why Republican protesters are small in number I will acknowledge that, unfortunately there is no prize for the winner.

Ever hear the adage: "The squeaky wheel gets the most oil"? The leftists believe the more noise (ant that's all it is in the vast majority of cases) the more mainstream their views will be perceived by the spectators. Leftists are so deluded that they truly believe their leftist ideology is mainstream.

On this mainstream note for a moment...Chuckles Schumer when learning of Gorsuch's nomination to the SC made a remark to the effect that he will not support anyone who is not "in the mainstream" of America. When Schumer and other Dems were questioned on this "mainstream" standard -- and exactly what constituted the mainstream, not one of them gave a straight answer. They did not want to articulate what they consider to be mainstream.

But back to the topic: At the end of the day with lefties it's all about the noise level. If they can shout you down and infringe on your free speech rights, they're happy. If they can riot and destroy property, they think they will have proved to the world just how righteous their cause is. If they can create as much inconvenience to the law abiding citizens and create chaos, havoc and disruption for them, they will have proved how strongly they believe in their cause, and their is strong conviction proves how righteous it is.

Great explanation boxcar. Like your quote at the bottom too. Both say a lot.

Simple - Republicans/Conservatives feel themselves to be creatures of privilege, either economically, socially, or whatever. As such, they tend to be happy with the status quo, and don't want to rock the boat (rise of the Tea Party an outlier event).

Dems/Libs are denizens of the world of "lack of privilege," whether real or imagined. As such, they feel obligated to protest everything to achieve what they call "a level playing field" (no such thing, of course).

Actually, the Alinskyites were in power for 8 years and would have completed a total takeover of America had their candidate - Hillary - won. Alinsky believed in implementing Marxism through legal and non-violent means, such as through the ballot box.

Those that are in the streets now are Marxist Leninists. Lenin opposed taking a legal route to gain power, instead preferring to gain control by force.

The Alinskyites had their day.

Now it's the Marxist Leninists' turn.

So, you don't think for a moment that "Republicans/Conservatives" believed their cherished status quo wasn't being seriously threatened by Obama who promised to "transform the face of America"?

Read my post again, I said "violent protestors". From what I saw of the march, the non-violent protestors were mostly just a bunch of angry slobs.
