America's very own Stupid Coup

Recommended Posts

https://medium.com/indica/i-lived-through-a-coup-america-is-having-one-now-437934b1dac3

This article summed up pretty well my feelings about the danger of Trump not acknowledging his loss and thought it deserved its own thread. (more at the link)

It’s absurd, because the whole thing seems like a clown show. Coups are supposed to be orderly, authoritarian, not this dumb shit. It honestly seems like a grift to bilk supporters out of more money. You can just roll it back, right? Right?

No. No no no. Oh God no.

The tragic thing which you do not understand — which you cannot understand — is that you’ve already lost. You cannot know exactly what — that’s the nature of chaos — but know this. You will lose more than you can bear.

We lost our children, playing at church. We lost our friends, sitting down to brunch. Muslims lost their dignity and rights. Your Republicans have set forces into play they cannot possibly understand and certainly cannot control. And they don’t even want to. To them, chaos is a ladder.

This is the point. You have taken an orderly system balancing a whole lot of chaos and fucked with it. I don’t know how it’s going to explode, but I can promise you this. It’s going to explode.

This is precisely why we have elections, and why both sides accept the results. To keep the chaos at bay. The whole point is that you have a regular, ritual fight rather than fighting all the time. Once one side breaks ritual then you’re on the way to civil war. Once you break the rules then chaos ensues. What exactly happens? I don’t know. It’s chaos.

Of course it is done stupidly. Everything this crew does is done ham handedly. Why would their coup be any different? 
 

You’re right that it’s just another fleecing of the flock.

Now that the idea of civil war has been planted, it's going to be a corrosive and toxic presence in our politics.

At the moment, I don't see any possibility that the Trumpalos can wage & win a civil war, they're too fucking stupid and their vision is only tearing things apart not building. But they could destroy the country.

The frightening part is what if Trump *wasn't stupid*. Team R would gleefully sign off on Trump For Life and then act surprised when they got sent to the camps too. Trump is just too fucking stupid to get it done, but someone just a bit smarter sure could have :o

This is why the whole notion of reaching out to Republicans and seeking compromise etc is so flawed. 

They have shown that they will either be silent or actually support an attempted coup. 

They are a cancer and a threat to democracy.

Yes. Scary. This could be the downside of doing a 25th Amendment removal of Trump. Pence and a few of the capable GOP leaders could actually pull a coup off. Pence ain't smart, but the GOP would have no problem rallying around him for a coup. Some message like "This is a bad time to switch to Biden. Let's just cool this off for 6 months and then hold a fair election (among several selected fascist candidates)." That election, of course, never really happens. That's how it is done in advanced Banana Republics.

Problem.... there are too many to kill them all. As an action plan, that only works with much smaller, more clearly identified, enemies.

The second thing, identifying a group by their politics and seeking to exterminate them is itself a very destructive goal. Somehow, some way, we remaining Americans must try to coax the rest of the country back from the brink. I don't know if it can really be done. First, the Trump-lovers have to recognize that they have a problem.

Wtf. Kill them all?

Americans have had many, many episodes of seditious and reprehensible behavior that threatened our nation’s stability and progress. 

Our experience is not that unique. We’ve got to carry on and pick up the torch these idiots have cavalierly thrown aside. Set the country to rights and enjoy a few more good years before the struggle is again required.

I think we are feeling what our parents felt during the 60s, and our grandparents endured during the depression and the World Wars. 

Gotta suck it up and fight the demons, or in this case, the deplorables.

A fair point.  And at the same time there are piss ant Republicans at the county level trying to overturn the vote while US Senators (e.g.  Mrs. Graham )  call states and try to over turn the vote.

Exactly - one must make the distinction between the lunatic fringe Trumpers and normal Republicans.

The nutcases like that chiropractor are really fairly few and can quite easily be dealt with - there ain't 75,000,000 of them..

IMO Nixon presented a more sinister threat because he and his gang were much smarter and sneakier - Trump and his gang are such clumsy, laughable buffoons.

Also, for such a bunch of geezers, I'm surprised you all seem to have forgotten how precarious American society looked back in those days - the military gunning down college students, cities all over American rioting and burning etc. The survival of America looked very much in doubt.

If Trump actually tried something like described above, those days would look like a Sunday picnic.

The key difference between a Trump and a Hitler or Mussolini is the later two had agendas beyond filling their own back pocket. IMO he will quit when the sheep are judged sufficiently fleeced. I agree with Meat. Let it play out some more before over-reacting. Consider how over-reacting plays into his hands.

It is like watching the retarded kid from down the street try to rob a bank on Sunday with a paint ball gun. Sure he is just banging on the door, not aware the place isn't even open, and he doesn't realize there are no paintballs in his gun anyway.

What isn't funny is he has a lot of "friends" that hate banks and may just hand him a real gun and tell him to come back on Monday. It won't be funny then and after the bank staff are all shot to death is a bit late to get concerned.

Also a lot of the local police think bank robbery should be legal and might want to help him too.

Give the righties universal health care, and do something positive to help with covid, like listening to the scientists.  Sure, many will refuse to believe they are better off, but moderate righties with a bit more education will. 

I don't think Biden can get universal health care done but he has to try.  The more righties who go bankrupt for medical reasons, or lose relatives to covid, the more support the dems will get.  There is enough time before the midterm elections to get something positive done, even if by executive order.

The point is that righties stay righty until something happens that dramatically affects them personally and they need the social safety net.  Then they wake up, most of the time.  Cue the video of the nurse watching people die of covid still not believing they had it.

Trump may be stupid, but what people seem unable to grasp is the nature of a Malignant Narcisist.

These people do not give up, ever.

They do not understand the concept of losing and moving on, ever.

They are special people with special powers and the world must bend or break it's rules to accommodate their special, self given rights. 

They simply up the anti. No matter how extreme or absurd or clownish, they pursue their goal.

In ordinary life, the only thing that stops them is courts, or bankruptcy and even then, they'll still make absurd moves to hold on to their power, even to the ruination or death of themselves. 

They have a host of enabling "victims", people so charmed by the shadow of the narcisist's greatness and superiority, that they'll also fall under the spell like a hypnotists assistant, do absurd things to consolidate their masters position and bask in reflected glory.

et voila'

It's a coup.

Bad thing to even joke about.

IMO there's probably only about 5% of diehard racists, bigots and similar repugnant people. Most of the rest just want to go along, a lot of them vote the way they've always voted which is how their parents voted.

You need to bring them with you, not threaten to exterminate them. That's a deeply stupid attitude unless you *want* to start a civil war.

Never heard anything remotely like that. Bush talked about his "nice phone call" but agreed that it had no legal standing. Got anything other than your say-so? IMHO it was dumb to make the concession without more complete information.

He also didn't try to assemble a bunch of Democrat governors/legislators to nullify the voters.

Completely different case from what is happening now.

Probably the very thing that caused this disruption to your rather wobbly creaky "Unity" is the very thing that would prevent a Coup.

Your 50 disunited states.

Coups don't happen in loosely assembled blocks of separate "States" where they all have their own constitutions, elected leaders, court systems, Police systems and army (National Guard) etc. (EG Europe) 

Wars do.

Among the other reasons that isn't likely is that "red" and "blue" states are actually not THAT far from 50/50 usually. There is no cohesive block of ideology that is very big. California for example is very far from solidly Democratic.

This is generally correct.  Gore conceded early on, then when the Florida legislature got involved with the recount, the issues were moved up through the courts to the Supremes.  At that point - in December - Gore informed his campaign staff that he was not pursuing any further relief, although there were better paths open to them than the Mad Mango is traipsing down now with his ink stained wretch of an attorney. 

My sister was in the room when Gore made his decision known.  And as usual, Soreass is wrong and can go fuck himself.

But Mississippi and much of the old Confederacy is very solidly Red. Along with the Louisiana Purchase states.  Just look at a Covid-19 map.  The "red" parts are very politically red.  And armed and waist deep in Deplorables.

A substantial chunk of the GOPPER Reich openly rejects 

democratic and republican norms and values. 

Some want to abolish the 17th amendment, and have the US Senate picked by state legislatures again. 

Many want to re-establish property qualifications for voting. 

Lots of them are just fine with vote suppression and gerrymandering.

It's funny how a non-Trumpublican is given a dozen admonishments about what a bad approach "kill 'em all" is (which is really what my post stated), but nobody bothers trying to give the same correction to Trumpublicans who are threatening civil war.

To paraphrase Golda Meir, "The USA cannot have decent gov't until Republicans love their children more than they hate-hate-HATE Democrats"

Who on this site is threatening civil war?  We might need actual cites from those posters so we can admonish them. 
Just a suggestion a “I made a bad  joke,  shouldn’t have said that”  would be easier in the long run than trying to justify it with unsubstantiated, “but they are worse claims”

See, now you write off 47% of your voting population as sick in the head and not rational.

That's going to work out really well going forward.

Maybe 10% of them fit that description. The rest, not so much, but if you want to play the game of 'those not with us are against us' - shrug. Don't complain about the outcomes.

FWIW I'd not compromise on a lot of stuff like 'creation science' and similar objectively disprovable rubbish, and I think that schools should be forbidden to teach such garbage.

I must of missed all the Muslims losing their rights. Tell me, did the (D) party ever accept the results of the 2016 election? Their actions over the last 4 years point towards "No".

Not surprising this guy is the latest hero in here, most of his articles are about how awful the US is - as he writes from Sri Lanka.

Really? Says who (other than Hillary The Irrelevant)?

I strongly doubt Speaker Pelosi would have gone to meet President Trump in the White House if she wasn't fairly seriously convinced he was really President. For example, she didn't come to my house once

Who on this site is threatening civil war?  We might need actual cites from those posters so we can admonish them. 
Just a suggestion a “I made a bad  joke,  shouldn’t have said that”  would be easier in the long run than trying to justify it with unsubstantiated, “but they are worse claims” 
 

I love your shtick. The calm reasoned voice that Trump and his supporters really are when you don't pay attention to the biased Liberal Media and the Radical Left Democrats. Your misdirection is good too. Too bad your boy Trump didn't have you.

That must be one of the talking points from the bullshit machine. I’ve seen it from several of the bullshitters. Never mind that Madam Satan conceded on Fucking Election Night. Never mind that the guy whose birth certificate the bullshitters found thought provoking brought the President elect to the WH for the traditional chat. Never mind that the new President commended his predecessor’s efforts at smoothing the transition, during his inauguration speech to the Largest Crowd of Humans Ever Assembled. 
 

Bullshitters were taught to consume bullshit and repeat it without thinking of such things that actually happened. The rest of us are left to clean up the mess their mommies and daddies left behind. If’s don’t quote them, there’s less to clean up.

Apparently Republicans are so divorced from reality a dying Republican will *literally with his last breath* declare Covid is a hoax and he must have something else. Not sure what to do with people that will quite literally die in large numbers rather than deal with facts and science. I think it would be fun if Trump told his cult ExLax and Viagra taken together in large doses is a sure cure :lol::lol:

Covid is not a hoax. But locking down 98% of the people because 2% are affected by it is a joke.

If only 2% were infected our rate would be half what it is as of today.

I don't think you know how a virus works.  And if you haven't been "affected" by it in any way, you are a hermit.

By that logic, we could have a 9/11 every other day and it would not be worth doing anything about.

How about instead of Stupid Coup we call it the Short Bus Coup?

 

Hard to do that, when millions of Trumpaloos, with gunz, believe that the election was stolen from Grumpf!  This may get qet a lot worse, before it gets better, but I hope that I am wrong....

The Muslims in question were in Sri Lanka, the article author's country and he was referring to the situation there.

Clinton conceded to Trump late on election night or early the next morning, and Obama invited Trump to the White House the next day and didn't block his transition.

The problem is the 48% who insist on their right to spread it.

Saying "Fuck, it's only 2%" or whatever, when hospitals are shoving patients out into tents in the parking lot and renting refrigerated trucks for the bodies is -really- goddam stupid.

Sorry but that's the facts

Problem.... there are too many to kill them all.

When they head out in their Camo gear and the shooting starts there is likely to be quite a few killed by 'friendly' fire. There will also be many suffering gunshot wounds to their feet.

Damage to infrastructure and aircraft impacts the 1% by temporarily reducing cashflow. Dead peons not so much.

You're the joke.

A very bad and childish joke.

And not very bright to boot. Your statement reveals you to be the true Dunning-Kruger specimen that you are. To have reached your age and not be able to comprehend what "contagious" means is inexcusable. Your attitude is exactly why the USA has by far the worst record in the world.

Keeriste, even 260,000 dead and 13,000,000 people infected doesn't wake you up.

Stupid really is unfixable.

That shadow has killed over a quarter-million people in the USA, you fucking fool. Mostly because the Mango Moran downplayed it and suckers like you believed him.

Of course it is done stupidly. Everything this crew does is done ham handedly. Why would their coup be any different? 

Last night I watched a PBS documentary on The Night of The Long Knives.  Hitler, Goering, Himmler...  there was no fucking around there.  They just went out and killed their perceived opponents.  No crying about being untreated fairly or those nasty cheaters.  You just got whacked. 

Trump is just a spoiled brat.  When he doesn't get his way, he whines, fully expecting, "Oh you poor thing.  Let mamma make it all better."  

And we should be grateful he's just an egotistical, self-centered, delusional, spoiled brat.  If he was like Hitler, we would have been in deep shit.
