Resistance pretty sure historian who suspects it's inevitable Trump will stage a coup is behind the curve

There’s bad news and good news for members of the resistance: in an interview with Salon published Monday, Yale history professor Timothy Snyder says it’s “pretty much inevitable” that President Donald Trump will attempt to take full control of the government by staging or exploiting a national crisis and declaring a state of emergency.


However, Snyder also tells Chauncey DeVega that his gut feeling is that “Trump and his administration will try and that it won’t work. Not so much because we are so great but because we have a little bit of time to prepare.”

Despite 1,500 retweets or so, it doesn’t look like many people read the part of the interview where Snyder says Trump’s attempt to end American democracy will fail; in fact, many think the professor either is underselling the danger Trump poses or doesn’t realize the country doesn’t have close to a year to prepare.


It’s sounding pretty violent, actually.



Quick, somebody loop George Takei into this Twitter thread before it’s too late!

It might be too late for even the guy who played Sulu on “Star Trek” a half century ago to help.


RUSSIAN PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Of course the Republicans will never give up power without resorting to bloodshed — just look at the ferocity with which the GOP just this weekend agreed to keep funding Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities through the fall in order to avert a government shutdown. Paul Ryan’s a monster, we tell ya.



If someone in the Deep State could smuggle the plans out of the White House and into the hands of the resistance, that’d be a big help.
