Timothy Snyder: Don't Underestimate Where This [Trump] Can Go

I'm seeing more and more threads at DU like this one.  I think they may be starting to understand this 'win' by Biden may not have been as 'clean' as they were lead to believe.  They have pooh pooh'd any reference to voting irregularities and legal maneuvers.  This could be a very bumpy ride!

I don't think they will handle their real loss (if it occurs) nearly as well as the 70MM who voted for Trump handled his 'loss'.  I predict, if Trump is actually named the winner of the election you will see a lot of posts about how the conservatives didn't burn it all down because they knew the 'fix' was in!  LOL

Timothy Snyder: Don't Underestimate Where This [Trump] Can Go

Underestimating Donald Trump is a mistake that people should not go on making. Laughing at him will not make him go away. If it did, he would have vanished decades ago. Nor will longstanding norms about how presidents behave make him go away. He is an actor and will stick to his lines: It was all a fraud, and he won “by a lot.” He was never defeated, goes the story; he was a victim of a conspiracy. This stab-in-the-back myth could become a permanent feature of American politics, so long as Trump has a bullhorn, be it on Fox or on RT (formerly Russia Today) — or, though Democrats might find this unthinkable, as an unelected president remaining in power.


After all, a claim that an election was illegitimate is a claim to remaining in power. A coup is under way, and the number of participants is not shrinking but growing. Few leading Republicans have acknowledged that the race is over. Important ones, such as Mitch McConnell and Mike Pompeo, appear to be on the side of the coup. We might like to think that this is all some strategy to find the president an exit ramp. But perhaps that is wishful thinking. The transition office refuses to begin its work. The secretary of defense, who did not want the army attacking civilians, was fired. The Department of Justice, exceeding its traditional mandate, has authorized investigations of the vote count. The talk shows on Fox this week contradict the news released by Fox last week. Republican lawmakers find ever new verbal formulations that directly or indirectly support Trump’s claims. The longer this goes on, the greater the danger to the Republic.

If it turns out that Trump is the winner and Democrats were caught cheating, the riots will be massive and Democrats will kill Democrats in the cities.

Well, Trump did some serious damage several days ago. A monoclonal antibody (mab) treatment from Eli Lilly received Emergency Use Authorization(EUA), with a contract for the purchase of 300,000 doses. This seriously damages the Dems' Trump did nothing narrative, especially since the company that developed the mab had been working with DARPA since February, 2018, and decided in January, 2020 to make Covid-19 one of its targets in their work with DARPA. And worse serious damage is probably days away in the form of Regeneron's mab treatment also receiving EUA (Regeneron's mab treatment was what Trump received).

More damage is coming in the form of vaccines, as Pfizer, Moderna, and possibly AstraZeneca are just a few weeks away from qualifying for EUA, and these all started ramping up volume production weeks ago.

Trump definitely will be doing severe damage between now and the inauguration of whoever the winner is ... severe damage to Bidens' and the MSM's LIES!
