I can still remember Bloody November back in 2016.

It was the bloodiest election week that my state of Iowa has ever had the misfortune to suffer.

Here in Iowa, we usually don't have election related violence.

It was a first.

It was filled with racist Confederate bullying. It was filled with blood. And it was filled with tears.

Please provide newsprint about your allegation.  The video you posted was of a woman thanking the officer she was hugging for his service and telling him she prays for his safe return home each night.

I did a deep dive on Iowa Riots Election 2016.  I also searched the Des Moines Register and "Iowa Bloody November 2016".  The google search returned no Iowan newspaper citing bloody riots.  I did find an article recounting a riot where the police allegedly started the violence.  There was no mention of Confederate bullying and racism.  

The text you posted was of a woman thanking the officer for his service, and saying she would pray for his safety so he could go home to his family each night like she goes home to hers.

I'm not saying you are wrong.  Maybe I read more into than there was.  I do find it surprising that there was no mention of any blood and hate-filled riots in Iowa in the Des Moines Register for election week November 1026 or any other Iowa newspaper for that matter.

Thank you, Jenifer.  I really appreciate that you did the research on this.

If you notice my post above, it links to a post of mine from February 1, 2016, starting a thread titled, "I want this man arrested".

Back then, it was the primary season, and nobody expected the guy to actually nominated by the GOP to be their candidate for president. Not even him. His candidacy was just a publicity stunt to make him money.

My concern then was not that he would actually be elected President. It was that his blatant bullying of Iowans and his violent threats made towards Iowans would result in an increase in racist bullying all across Iowa by fans of that Confederate Fake Republican Steve King, who had been flying his Confederate Flag on his US Congressional desk since 2002.

As expected, the racist bullying started here in Iowa, against Black and Brown schoolchildren in middle schools and high schools, before the month of February was even over. Here's an article from February 25, 2016, about this war against schoolchildren.

This kind of thing happened repeatedly here in Iowa, during the primary, and throughout the general election season as well, since the GOP decided to nominate this Fake Republican Steve King wannabe as their presidential candidate.

It wasn't just here in Iowa schools where this rapidly escalating cultural war was being waged against the children. Here's an article from April 11, 2016 from our next door neighbors in Wisconsin, just across the Mississippi river from us.

This bullying war against children went nation wide. It was the beginning of a 2nd Civil War in this nation, where our schools became the battleground, in a war waged against children. We could have stopped it had we just arrested the perpetrator when he first came for the Iowans.

Here's just one of the incidents in the civil war that was being waged here in Iowa in 2016 being waged against Iowa's children in our schools. 

It was uploaded by Michael Scott Green on October 16, 2016, who brought his Confederate flag to a high school football game and proceeded to use it to harass some Black folks in the stands. (Iowa is a mostly all-white state.) He claimed that his civil rights were being violated by the police when he was ejected for trespassing. He filmed the encounter, and posted it to YouTube, so I'll let you watch it and let you be the judge. This is what we and our children were dealing with here in Iowa, all throughout the campaign in 2016, in both the primary and the general election, as a result of this presidential campaign of racist bullying by that Steve King wannabe who now occupies the Oval Office.

Try adding his name to your Google searches. You don't need anything else. His name alone should work as a search term.

If you look at the date that the video was uploaded, you will find that it was uploaded November 2, 2016. 

Earlier that morning, two Iowa Police officers, Officer Justin Martin and Sgt. Tony Beminio, had been ambushed and assassinated by a Confederate Flag waving Fake Republican.

On Election Day in Bloody November, November 8, 2016, less than a week later, all of the flags in Iowa were flying at Half-Staff. It's no longer on the web, but the wayback machine (internet archive) saved it.

Welcome to Steve King's Iowa.

You don't have to believe me. Here's a video with some information from the Blue Lives Matter YouTube channel.

Yes, lots of links to people being douchebags.

Your choice of word, however, was "bloody".

Where did things get violent?
