Some anti-Donald Trump activists have now started to wear safety pins to signify to others distraught over the election to know they are a “safe space.”
The #SafetyPin idea was started in the United Kingdom after the Brexit vote but was pushed in the United States after the Trump election by a reporter for the liberal website Slate, Fox News reported.
“Yesterday and today, as I walk around in this unfamiliar new country, I see people of color and wonder if they think I’m one of the 53 percent of white women who voted for Trump. I see white men and wonder if they’re one of the 63 percent who did. We need an outward sign of sympathy, a way for the majority of us who voted against fascism to recognize one another,” columnist Michelle Goldberg wrote.
Her call was echoed by Vox, another left-leaning outfit, who said, “potentially related racist and anti-Semitic abuse and vandalism is happening across the country” since President-elect Trump won the election Tuesday.
Apparently, they missed all of the riots, and the beating of a white man by a gang of thugs because he voted for Trump, coming from their side of the aisle.
The #SafetyPin movement is gaining popularity on social media, with even some celebrities joining in.
And, if all else fails, they can give the safety pins to the babies that cannot deal with the results of a fair a Democratic election. They can use them to pin their diapers.

President-elect Trump has a brand new website–and he wants you to stop by and ‘share your ideas’
“I’m so scared of Trump that I’m going to commit crimes on camera and assault people that look like they voted for him.”#safetypin

People saying they are traumatized by this election have clearly led lives devoid of actual trauma.#safetypin #TrumpRiot #trumpprotest

Hey #safetypin children:
If you can tell me who George Soros, Sid Blumenthal & John Podesta are then you can wear your stupid pin forever.
