For a long time – and escalating leading up to the November 2020 election – Trump has been destroying public confidence in elections, lying that vote-by-mail is unworkable, sabotaging the U.S. Postal Service, saying he might ignore the election results and continue ruling the U.S. from the White House, urging his loyal followers to take up arms to violently protect his continuing power, and so forth.
Meanwhile — and also for a long time — Republican-dominated states have been purging from the voting rolls the demographic groups most likely to vote for Democrats (African-Americans, students, poor people, etc.). They have done many other sleazy things to suppress voter turnout.
It is VERY CLEAR that Trump and the Republicans are actually CONDUCTING A COUP against American democracy and the U.S. Constitution. The coup will NOT occur on November 3; it is ALREADY FAR UNDERWAY!
Most Democrats are failing to take strong actions. If we are to protect our nation from the coup, people need to RAPIDLY ORGANIZE a nonviolent movement. I’m glad George Lakey and other savvy nonviolent organizers are building the movement we need now.
