(Daily Boulder)   Trump appears to be adopting the title of 'King' from multiple sources and he's now calling for civil war to make it official. Sadly Republicans don't care   (dailyboulder.com) divider line

Didn't England have like seven kings at one time until some Cnut took over?

Donald Trump is my King.

Yes, he might have asked, "Is Finland part of Russia?" And, yes, he said windmills cause cancer. And Yes, he asked if China had a hurricane gun. An yes, he called Americans who die in combat "Losers" and "Suckers".

But come on, he's your rightful King. Now Bow Down!

Yeah, the problem with that example is that the guys killing the king were psychotic fundigelicals that set up an authoritarian theocratic military-state that tried to outlaw laughing.  Not good role models

Let's hope he does an Elvis on the throne, but not before he sees his entire shiatty faux empire dismantled, and he's left with nothing.

I'm not sure I agree with that.  But it is rather odd to talk about overthrowing the MAGAt King by showing an image of a king being overthrown by MAGAts (Make Anglia Great Again).  I mean, Charles I wasn't a nice guy, but he was much the preferred dog in that particular fight.

They don't know or even studied history. They're just taking pieces of pop culture facts and tall tales about the country's founding to form their own frontier gibberish.

WEEKLY CIVIL WAR THREAD!

WOOO.

Ain't gonna happen, no matter who "calls" for it, Twats about it, or whatever.

The domestic terrorists (R) will keep being domestic terrorists and conducting that type of war, but that's it especially until they are actually treated like ACTUAL farking terrorists.

Folks attempting to suppress the vote of undesirables, disenfranvhise voters, and eliminate civil liberties may call themselves 1776ers, but we all know their hats and coats are red...

The message came after Fox Nation propagandist Lara Logan had reposted a message from the right-wing "populist" President of El Salvador, that suggests the United States is "falling so fast" due to an "enemy" within.

That's great.  The right is now taking cues from this dumb little shiatlord who just tried to sell Bitcoin bonds that NOBODY bought.  Nobody with actual money was dumb enough to buy promises.  https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-04-29/bitcoin-bond-sale-flop-deepens-debt-market-rout-in-el-salvador

The guy who is sending his country into default because he thought he was a genius investor buying the Bitcoin dip all the way down to the bottom.

"After seeking to overturn his election defeat, the former president is now endorsing the claim that we are in a 'civil war.' Incredibly dangerous. How long until the next gunman takes him literally and/or seriously? What about the next time he or his party lose another election?" asked Nyhan.

I really and truly wish one gunman would take him seriously in a very specific way.

Attorney and journalist Dean Obeidallah wrote: "Trump's suggestion of a Civil War appears to forget that on Jan 6 he and his forces tried that and FAILED. But the fact Trump can call for a civil war today is only possible because DOJ has still not prosecuted Trump-despite it being 502 days since Jan 6!"

"Trump mirrors his base. Pay attention," former GOP Congressman Denver Riggleman wrote.


This all bears repeating.

The DOJ needed to get moving on this long ago. Hopefully there's still enough time and political will to make it happen.

So let me get this straight. trump has said that it's OK to start shooting republicans? Given that they have been given their martial training from russia, I'm pretty sure the civil war would be short. The problem would be what to do with all of their fat carcasses.

Here is the thing.  I don't like billionaires but they have their uses.  And they won't stand for losing money due to civil war, and thus if they don't want it, we won't have it.  Don't forget this country is actually run by a couple people with more money than you can imagine. If Trump counters their interests, he'll be countered.

Many, many Republicans don't really care about democracy. They only support it as a system of government because we have a white majority, and they think that having a white majority in a majority rules government means that white people are in control. (They aren't really wrong on that front). I don't think it's a coincidence that so many GOPers are gravitating towards fascism now that their racial majority is eroding, since they'd rather give up democracy than power.

It's just they're on the side of monarchy and dictatorship.

Evangelicals have "King" in lots  of their religious songs.  Not Martin Luther King.

Getting a King from a violent overthrow of the middle class, sounds like a very bad reading of the Communist Manifesto by people who have a very bad reading of the King James Version or of the Ten Commandments.
