Regardless of which side of the pond they are on, there are some characteristics about liberals that can be counted on, like the tendency to leave a mess whenever they come together.
Thousands of left-wing protesters took to the streets of London to protest President Donald Trump’s state visit and while they appear to have an edge on their American counterparts when it comes to creativity, the demonstrators have proven to be every bit as hypocritical, preaching about the environment while leaving piles of trash for others to clean up.
Feminists, environmentalists, peace activists, trade unionists and others turned out to express their anger over Trump’s lavish royal welcome, crowding the government district as the president met Prime Minister Theresa May, the Associated Press reported.
As seen in the video here, the Brits turned out in force to denounce the president.
By the way, what’s not getting nearly as much attention is that thousands turned out in support of President Trump, as well.
“We love Trump!” the friendlies can be heard chanting.

But back to the rubbish, photos were shared online of the mess left behind by the anti-Trump protesters.
Having served their purpose, mounds of protest signs were left behind — it seems the left in England have yet to learn the lesson liberals in the states got from the tea party, that being that hand-made signs look more authentic than professional made signs that give away the moneyed leftist institutions driving the protests.

The great irony here is that many who oppose Trump do so out of concern for the environment.
During the protests Jeremy Corbyn, the leftist leader of the Labour Party, ranted about climate change, which he believes Trump doesn’t take seriously, and about being more accepting of illegal immigration.
“Can we stop treating people who travel for a place of safety, escape from oppression, from climate change-induced degradation or economic poverty to try to make their contribution to the world — don’t treat them as enemies, treat them as fellow human beings and citizens of this planet who deserve our support, our sympathy and our understanding,” Corbyn said, according to the Daily Mail.
Corbyn declined an invitation to attend Monday’s state banquet for the president at Buckingham Palace, but sought a meeting with Trump, according to the AP.
The president turned him down, calling Corbyn “somewhat of a negative force.”
“He wanted to meet today or tomorrow and I decided I would not do that,” President Trump reportedly said.
And while many of the protesters held signs about the environment and were lectured by Corbyn, the lesson didn’t take.
The spectacle was summed up well in a tweet from the deputy political editor for the Daily Mail, who called it a “load of lefty crap.”

“Crap” being a reoccurring theme:
Anti-Trump and environmentalist protestors have littered the streets of London with their crap.
Complete hypocrites and an embarrassment to London. pic.twitter.com/E5n6vh5cf9

Here’s a quick sampling of some of the responses from Twitter:
Yet again the protesters have left loads of rubbish on the streets of London. @EmilyThornberry @jeremycorbyn might like to go and help clear it up as they have rallied these litter louts to attend the protest against @realDonaldTrump

Disgusting. So much for loving the environment

As if anyone believes these people are genuine protesters anyway. Just activists with nothing better to do. Don’t they have responsibilities, for families, employers, customers? Where do they get the time to act in this way?

The Tory Party. Literally the sole Conceivers and Authors of all the disastrous Brexit crap. Making a monumental mess and leaving it to others to clear up.
