I’m not sure when it happened, but our country has taken a severely dangerous turn. In years past, conservatives, Tea Party supporters, and other shades of America’s right wing have complained about the growth of government, the Democrat trend toward socialism, and the attack on our natural rights. The right wing has at times used harsh terms, but none but the most fringe have ever argued for the overthrow of government or the upending of a lawfully elected administration.
Sadly, the same cannot now be said for liberals.
Finding themselves in a minority party role for the first time in almost 15 years, it seems that the Democrat left has completely lost control of their senses. Just two weeks in to the Trump administration’s tenure and once “mainstream” voices on the left have actually begun to call for a physical coup, or overthrow, of the duly elected Trump administration.
In a post for Foreign Policy magazine, former Obama administration official Rosa Brooks outline four ways to “get rid” of President Trump, her last suggestion being the most outrageous (though they were all ridiculous), “The fourth possibility is one that until recently I would have said was unthinkable in the United States of America: a military coup, or at least a refusal by military leaders to obey certain orders.”
This was someone who had actually worked in the Obama administration, folks! They’re not playing around. It wasn’t just Ms. Brooks though, as countless of celebrities have also thrown their hats into the insane and treasonous ring.
