Storm troopers in the cities? A Trumpian takeover of democracy?
The question isn’t if this is what the Trumpers are doing, it’s will they succeed.
A lot of people are in the “it can’t happen here” camp on this. But it is happening, we’re watching it. Trump says he is sending these – what should we call them – to all the “Democrat” cities. Calling them Little Green Men is good, because that is the model he is following.
Trump is following the Putin 21st-century stealth takeover model. Will Trump also follow the Putin election model? The one where Putin always wins “elections” even when he is unpopular?
Trump said this, and it is worth remembering that he did:
“You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay? I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump — I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad. But the left plays it cuter and tougher.”
(“Bikers for Trump”? So maybe call these forces invading our cities “Night Wolves?)
There really is no question this is what he is doing. He told us, and we are seeing it happening. (Do we take him seriously or literally?) The question is, will it work?
It seems clownish, he is clearly not all there. The Trumper crowd are so incompetent that it is hard to take them seriously.
But make no mistake it IS happening right before our eyes. He says it out loud, and then he does it, and then people ask if it is happening?
But don’t worry the Democrats are not happy and might do something.
