Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic folklore figure described as “half-goat, half-demon”, who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. Krampus is one of the companions of Saint Nicholas in regions including Austria, Bavaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia and Northern Italy. The origin of the figure is unclear; some folklorists and anthropologists have postulated a pre-Christian origin for the figure.

    Brexit and Trump winning weren’t losses in many people’s opinion. I guess if you don’t get what you want you just claim it’s a national tragedy to make yourself feel better.

    • Red

      More people consider president trump a loss than a win. About 3 million more people.

      • The Voice of Reason

        Yes that’s very true however in America the popular vote dont mean shit. We have an electoral college, thats the way its been in this country from day one, if you have a problem with that to dam bad cause it aint gonna change. You could move if you want.

          Thankyou, Sargeant obvious

          • Bob Frapples

            Then quit bitching, Mrs. Whinesalot.

        • EllaWilson

          The Unites States president is elected by the electoral college not the popular vote. All of clinton’s lead came from two counties in Los Angeles. The wisdom of the founders prevents one city from picking the president every election.

      • 1) You’re only counting people who actually voted and
        2) You fail to take into consideration how many of those voters weren’t eligible to vote in the first place, e.g. illegal aliens.

        • Red

          Please put your foil hat back on, I can hear your thoughts.

          • Stunning retort from a person who doesn’t even have an actual profile.

            Troll much? Lol!

            • Red

              Oh, so you do have proof?

        • Rev. Clint

          How many exactly? I would like to see some actual facts you can point to… unless you are too busy jerking off your German Shepard to look.

            Snopes goes to extraordinary lengths to argue that the voter irregularities were not examples of fraud, but, if you read the entire piece, you will discover that, in the end, there were more votes cast than registered voters in roughly 2/3 of Detroit. The article also mentions that Detroit voted roughly 95% for Hillary Clinton.

      • fascismnongrata

        That’s funny, because we have a Constitutional Republic here in America to prevent mob rule from fools like you. On the flip side, remove NY city or Los Angeles county (not both but either one), both filled with fraud and illegals, and Hillary couldn’t even win the popular vote.

      • jay

        Yes, as a percentage, slightly more Americans preferred Clinton to Trump, about 2 or 3% more. Calling it a national tragedy is still a highly partisan statement. Can’t you talk about the sadness of someone dying without bringing politics into it? Does EVERYTHING have to be about politics?

      • Fat Hubie

        By more people, you mean stupid progressives. Trump won because anyone else would have been un-American. Hillary lost because she is a known criminal. Be happy in a great America.
        Happy New Year!

  • galf

    Only 55% of age-eligible voters actually voted in this past election

    • HarlequinWolf .

      If you don’t use the vote that’s your tough shit.

  • fascismnongrata

    Rather throwing in some typical twisted lefty mindlessness, they really lost Obama, Hillary, identity politics and the move away from the far left scorched earth agenda of the globalists and their feckless crybaby snowflakes.
