Default Conventional v Electron Flow



This is really confusing me. I know that electrons and charge flows from the
negative terminal in a circuit to the positive one. Yet placing a diode in
the circuit contradicts this;

This is somewhat paradoxical. How can a DC flow from + to - when I know the
electron flow is in the other direction??? Please help!
