Antifa Confirms The Coup We Warned You About In September
Regular readers will recall that in our September 4, 2020 article, Unconventional Warfare – The Democrat Plan To Oust Trump, we explained the plan to overthrow the government that
Democrats and their Far Left allies were telegraphing.
Our motivation for writing the article was that Republicans and perhaps the Trump campaign appeared to be totally unprepared for what Democrats were telegraphing, because they seem to assume they are facing the conventional Election Day threats of being inundated with mail-in ballots, garden variety vote fraud, such as individuals casting multiple in-person ballots, and the chaos attendant to conducting an election in the midst of media-generated pandemic hysteria.
All those things will happen, but they are not what will determine the outcome of the election in the Democrats’ favor. To get rid of President Trump and to seize power permanently we contended Democrats will rely on the principles of unconventional warfare.
And now the Far Left has not only confirmed the existence of the plot, they have released their plan as well.
Our friend Joel B. Pollak, reporting for Breitbart, disclosed the existence of an online guide to “disruption” that outlines a plan to shut down the country and force President Donald Trump from power.
The guide, “Stopping the Coup,” available as a Google doc, is being circulated by a group called ShutDownDC. It casts its plan for disruption as a response to an imagined “coup” by the president in the case of a close election.
In an email promoting the guide, reported by Mr. Pollak, ShutDownDC declares: “Preventing Donald Trump from stealing the election and remaining in office is likely to take mass, sustained disruptive movements all over the country.” The guide is a manual to that “disruption.”
Parts of the guide are committed to ensuring a “fair election.” Parts of it, however, read like a manual for staging a coup rather than a guide to preventing one:
In the context of a coup or highly contested election we need to be clear that our actions must directly affect the structures and pillars of power. Our largest asset in this regard utilizes the ideas of non-compliance through massive, broad based direct action. Where we can, we need to be in the streets, on the highways, or at the sites of power and power holders. In our jobs and lives we must refuse to allow those taking control the legitimacy of the power they seek through strikes, slowdowns, and boycotts, and public refusal to accept an illegitimate ruling party.
Another section urges activists to stop American life from continuing if the election does not go their way (original emphasis):
In order to really win we will need to force some pillars of power (business, military, media, or other major institutions) to decide to side with the people, or at least get out of the way. If everyday life goes on, a despot will not leave power, and so there will be no incentive for real systems change. You want to think about what it might take to stop business-as-usual.
The guide also says that activists plan on “physically protecting the vote count from counter-protestors, federal agents, or white supremacist militias.”
The guide indicates that activists intend to “demand that no winner be announced until every vote is counted,” and that they will launch “mass coordinated action” to that end.
One section says that in the case of a contested election, “we must take action” (original emphasis):
In the end, the actual electorate might be split, half truly believing that Trump was elected legally, and half knowing that he was not.
It is in this muddied context of legal and political wrangling that we must take action. We cannot wait to see how the chips fall. That will only ensure more power for the violent white supremacist machine that is the Trump administration and its supporters.
We want to be clear here, though: we are not a group of Biden supporters. This is not about ensuring that the Democrats win, but actually preparing for the possibility that white supremacist violence will continue.
The guide also suggests that activists will continue their “disruption” regardless of who wins the election.
The document appears to be the product of a group called the Disruption Project, whose website describes itself as “dedicated to supporting uprisings, resistance and mass direct action.”
ShutDownDC’s website indicates that it expects Trump to be “forced from office,” adding: “We are not seeking a ‘return to normalcy,’ because we know that returning to ‘normal’ means returning to a system that was built on oppression. Rather, we see this as the time to rise up against the current crisis and move forward to dismantle the interlocking systems of oppression that have plagued this land for centuries.”
Translation: Prepare for the revolution.
This is a “no BS moment” for armed patriots and anyone else who simply wants to be left alone to live in the constitutional republic bequeathed to us by the Founders.
