My Hot Take on the Coup is Stolen From Kenny Smith

Unfortunately, Shaq and Chuck Aren’t Going to Hear Mine

When it comes to doomscrolling and media orgies, I’m a glutton. It’s not that I don’t feel guilty afterwards… like when I willed a Catagory-5 hurricane to slam into New Orleans… but during the event I can’t stop myself. You may not be surprised to find out that I watched every minute of the Dimwitted Rebellion and I’ve read LOTS and LOTS of things after it.

“This Is Not Who We Are”

I’ve heard some goofballs on TV say “this is not who we are”, to which I reply… “Well, I hope the fuck not” because that pack of soft-looking, incompetent morons was chock-o-block full of Nazis and White Supremacists. To make my point I’m going to have to rely on the totally fascinating Twitter Feed of Rafael Shimunov:

You imagine a coup as a well-planned attack by elite para-military group, but that isn't how they generally go down. Like the German Brownshirts or the Cambodian Khmer Rouge, a loosely organized collection of thugs and disaffected hicks merely needs to create chaos.

Larry is so right. The BBC just had a story about how seven brothers (who were originally uneducated shepherds — similar to our Trump Rednecks but with desert camo and different colored baseball caps) managed to inflict an eight year reign of terror on a small town.

Next Time It Will Be Different

Next time these guys think that someone “stole” an election, they’ll bring more guns.

The Stolen Election

This is the point that Kenny Smith was making. The Coup d’Imbecils was about votes.
