Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 22, 2021

(CNN)A rush of new and shocking behind-the-scenes disclosures about how then-President Donald Trump sought to thwart the Constitution and the will of voters makes a clear case that America came closer to a coup earlier this year than previously known.

The fresh evidence also shows what many people in Trump's inner circle knew in January: His case to stay in power was meritless, but an unchained commander in chief chose to listen to acolytes pushing wild conspiracies. Some of those who knew the truth refused to speak up, even as American democracy came under attack.

I am sorry, I have Trumpers in my own family and I do love them but, like I said, I am sorry but I just cannot and will not tolerate their insane pretense that Donald Trump wasn't trying to commit a coup.

The most deluded of Trump's delusionals aside, it should be pretty clear to just about everyone by now that this was not a goddamn drill.

So long as Trump is walking the street and even 10% of his heathens think that he was elected and not Joe Biden he is a very real threat.

I don't get how rational people still tremble in fear at the name of Trump.

Probably because rational people learn from their mistakes

And recognizing a threat has nothing to do with fear, stupid

"I don't get how rational people still tremble in fear at the name of Trump."

It's pretty simple. Of course, you have to be willing to understand. As a Navy veteran, I'm sure you're capable of understanding. All you need is the will to do it:

"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance."

THe real threat to democracy presented by Trump and his minions is being ignored by most Americans. Ignore it at your peril. Quite honestly, Donald Trump should be viewed as Mussolini in America in 2021. To think he isn't a Fascist wannabe dictator is dilusional. Conservatives will agree but not until he becomes the dictator and they feel the pain of his dictatorship because they are stubborn and unwilling to look at facts as they have demonstrated many times in history. Remember when it was traitorous to oppose the Vietnam war, the Iraq invasion? How did that all turn out for the conservatives who were so much smarter than those of us who openly opposed those things? Do conservatives ever question their own beliefs, are they even capable of doing so even when so many of their beliefs have been historically proven so completely wrong?
Some of them will still try to justify those wars even after they have been absolutely proven to be huge disasters for America. That is because their beliefs aren't formed from positions of honest thinking, no they were given to them by cult leaders. Was the belief in the Iraq invasion any different than drinking Jim Jones Kool Aide? A cult is a cult, no matter if it has hundreds of followers or millions of followers, it is still a cult. Trumpism is perhaps the most dangerous cult America has ever seen and the members of that cult are some of the most irrational people we have ever experienced as a powerful political movement. Worst part, Donald Trump doesn't even believe most of the tenets required of cult membership. Cult members won't get vaccinated even though cult leader Donald did get vaccinated way back in December of 2020.
If that fact doesn't make one question the tenets of the cult then basically nothing will.

Trump broke so many progressives.

He can't even post on social media platforms yet he's going to quietly stage some kind of Coup?
