Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 29, 2022

More than 18 months after the rioting at the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob, an estimated 13 million U.S. adults, or 5% of the adult population, agree that force would be justified to restore former President Donald Trump to the White House and an estimated 15 million Americans believe force would be justified to prevent Trump from being prosecuted ...

I wonder how many of those 13 million poeple would be willing to stand up and fight to overthrow the constitution?

I say that because there is no constitutional measure (other than re-election) for DJT to be reinstates as president.

At the same time, I wonder how many there are in the US who would be willing to use force to prevent him from being reinstated if he did win a future presidential election?

We've gotten a good look at this branch of society.

Most are older, obese, poor, ego driven, can't legally own guns, low information, and had parents who were cousins.

In short they're not a threat they're not even voters.

Five percent of the population also beat their wives and children.

Saying this is as useless and stupid as saying "duhhh we're not a democracy!"

The reason they think violence is warranted is because of the very fact that that's the only way to get him back into office.

there are 329.5 million people in the US (2020) Census data...
209.1 million of which are 18 or over...

13 million, is a very small number.

Especially since I think the Armed Services would vote overwhelmingly
to stay in the U.S.

"The reason they think violence is warranted is because of the very fact that that's the only way to get him back into office."

And?

The oath taken by every military officer, and I think pretty much every other official is to support and defend the constitution, against all enemies, foreign AND domestic.

Trying to overthrow a constitutional government is going to get you on the wrong side of a whole lot of forces that you don't want to be on the wrong side of.

In short, it would be a futile act. It would likely be an act of suicide for many.

Folks talking back to Faux News on the TV don't count as revolutionaries, nor do the old folks who own over/under bird guns that haven't been fired in umpteen years. The ones to be worried about are the cosplay ----- with engines of war, lots of ammo and nothing to lose in their lives. They seem to think they can win a firefight against the local Po-Po, state militia or Army regiment annoyed about being called up for more than a weekend a month.

What the cosplayers forget is that there is a large number of African American folks out there who are not patriots, but they REALLY hate white folks and if the shooting starts, these people will be there, shooting back so as to get a white scalp or two. If the shooting starts, it will be as racial as it is political...

So far, it's only been suicide for Ashli.

It is a small number - percentage wise much higher than the far right "nazis" in Ukraine Putin invaded to eliminate. Just sayin'

And? They won't see it as fighting against the Constitution. They'll twist it to justify their actions as being FOR the United States.

An oath is meaningless. Sorry, but it means nothing insofar as this topic is concerned.

TrumpAHumps have never gotten past the stage of 2 emotionally. They use their fists because they can't use their brain. Screaming, ignorance and violence is the only thing these stunted toddlers know.

And here's your weekly reminder:

Had Trump simply conceded the election, just like every other losing POTUS candidate in history, Ashli Babbitt would still be alive.

Swallow it.

Frankly, I see the Trumpansy's going in the same direction as the news outlet that launched and projected the direction of his career's trajectory... The now defunct< (one good thing that came from the Covid pandemic) Davidpecker publication once found in every grocery aisle in Amurika... the National Enquirer.

That disgusting piece of pulp consisting of yellow journalism and purple prose was the mental swill was their major source of information spoon-fed like pablum to the masses and all about the Trumptilian Odessey...

for decades...

and decades...

Covid already took out a bunch of them.
