(PoliticalLookout.com)- Left-wing extremists supporting the Democrats in the upcoming presidential elected published an online guide recently which tells readers how to cause as much “disruption” as possible in the event of President Donald Trump winning. The guide also calls on readers to help force President Trump out of the White House if the 2020 election is too close to call.
The free Google Doc document is entitled “Stopping the Coup,” and its writers don’t appear to understand what the word “coup” means. Nor do they appear to see the irony of calling for an end to a coup while also actively engaging in an effort to remove a legitimate president from office through violence or disruption.
A left-wing extremist organization called ShutDownDC published the guide, and explain how they intend to cause widespread disruption in the event of what they describe as a “coup,” whereby the president remains in office despite the results being contested.
ShutDownDC sent an email to followers promoting the guide which endorses “mass, sustained disruptive movements all over the country.” The guide, they said, is a manual to help with it.
In one section of the document, authors say that in the event of a contested election, they need to be clear that their actions “must directly affect the structures and pillars of power.”
“Our largest asset in this regard utilizes the ideas of non-compliance through massive, broad based direct action,” it continues. “Where we can, we need to be in the streets, on the highways, or at the sites of power and power holders. In our jobs and lives we must refuse to allow those taking control of the legitimacy of the power they seek through strikes, slowdowns, and boycotts, and public refusal to accept an illegitimate ruling party.”
It reads as an effort to redefine what “illegitimate” means in order to warrant the violence and/or disruption they may be planning.
In another section of the document, the authors urge readers to stop everyday life from going ahead if the Democrats lose.
“In order to really win we will need to force some pillars of power (business, military, media, or other major institutions) to decide to side with the people, or at least get out of the way,” it reads.
In short, it means that they intend to win over some institutions to support their cause if the election doesn’t go their way.
“If everyday life goes on, a despot will not leave power, and so there will be no incentive for real systems of change. You want to think about what it might take to stop business-as-usual,” it continues.
It means that in the event of a Trump victory in November – or whatever month afterwards that the results are finally announced – major Amerian cities may have to prepare for even more riots initiated by left-wing extremists.
