Soft Coup

Post by Martin Hash » Fri Jun 25, 2021 2:25 pm

There might have been another soft coup of a president in America’s past, there were certainly a few suspicious transitions of power, but the magnitude of the coup against Trump is certainly the most egregious: a sham election typified by sham propaganda and sham voting. Trump’s enemies were legion: collusion of both established political parties, media, entertainment & foreign governments. All he had on his side was his immediate family and 75 million Americans, powerless to assist against the Swamp. First there was the Russia hoax, the “Fine People” hoax, the Drink Bleach hoax, Lafayette Square hoax, Kids in Cages hoax, the “Losers” hoax, Russian Bounty hoax, the Ukraine hoax which ended in a hoax impeachment, and finally, when none of that worked; lockdowns. The coup was coordinated, extremely well planned and financed: the Widows and ex-wifes of billionaires supplied obscene amounts of cash, and all of the media, especially Hollywood, poured on an equal value in invective. Voting laws were changed without approval, courts refused to hear cases; at every step, every lever of power had been co-opted and anyone who said otherwise was insulted, intimidated & marginalized.

For Trump’s part, he was responsible for his horrendously bad judgment of people. He either allowed or was forced to surround himself with enemies. He thought people would act out of loyalty to him personally, or the country in general, but they were all instead loyal swamp creatures, deeply beholden to the Special Interests that got them where they were, and the nature of how Elites work: people who think they know better-n-you because they went to the right schools and belong to the right clubs; people who all think they are brilliant through self-congratulations and nepotism. Trump had a chance but he squandered it by always having to be the fat spider in the middle of the web that everything had to go through; a self-centeredness that can lead to success or failure depending on the trustworthiness of your underlings; which everyone but him could see were poison.
