The Coup

According to Right Wing Watch, conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles came up with a doozy Tuesday night on his "TruNews" television show.

First he blustered that the prominence of openly gay journalists Rachel Maddow and Anderson Cooper on TV is proof that America has been "homosexualized."

America has been made gay?  You'd think I'd have noticed that.

When Maddow said on her show that America must start to prepare for "the worst case scenario that Trump is compromised by Russia," she was really saying let's have a revolution, claimed Wiles.  In his estimation, a violent coup was 72 hours away.

"Be prepared that you’re going to turn on the television and see helicopters hovering over the roof of the White House with men clad in black repelling down ropes, entering into the White House. Be prepared for a shootout in the White House as Secret Service agents shoot commandos coming in to arrest President Trump. That is how close we are to a revolution. Be prepared for a mob— a leftist mob—to tear down the gates, the fence at the White House and to go into the White House and to drag him out with his family and decapitate them on the lawn of the White House."

I've never heard anything so stupid.

For starters, it will be lesbians, not men, repelling down ropes.  Transgender commandos will invite the Secret Service to play horseshoes.  Half the leftist mob won't tear down anything, unwilling to harm period aesthetics, and the other half will be too busy reinstalling a White House bikeshare station.  And the only place that Trump will be dragged is to a tutorial on how to speak English.
