Will the Caravan Coup be Trump’s “October Surprise”?

Will the Caravan Coup be Trump’s “October Surprise” and Reichstag Fire to Cap A Week of Horror?

Treasonous “October Surprises” gave Republicans the presidency in 1968 and 1980. A staged 1933 Reichstag fire gave Hitler his dictatorship.

This year’s likeliest pretext for a Trump coup could be that “terror caravan” to the south.

Amidst yet another automatic weapons slaughter (this time aimed at the Jewish people), mail bombs, silenced media, rapist judges, dead and dissected journalists, threats to “lock up” liberals, internet chaos, stripped voter rolls and flipped vote counts, Trump will predictably escalate his goose-step chorus during this time of horror.

The corporate media will spread the last-minute “Red Shift” Big Lie while a tsunami of Koch/Adelman/Bezos-funded attack ads spew blatant racism and fascist hate.

The deal is to be sealed with an intimidated electorate, stripped voting rights and flipped ballot tallies.

That march through Mexico is the perfect October “crisis” to trigger the coup.

In 1980 Reagan treasonously took power by making sure US hostages stayed in Iran. In 1968 Nixon treasonously sabotaged the peace that did not come to Vietnam. In 1933 Hitler burned the Reichstag.

Now we face destruction of our basic rights and the planet itself—-along with Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and so much more.

Green/progressive activists are pouring in their small donations, registering to vote, preparing to work the polls, defending registration rolls, demanding fair vote counts and much more.

Hundreds of excellent candidates running as Democrats are waging solid, progressive campaigns. Those inevitably shafted by stripped voter rolls and flipped vote counts must REFUSE TO CONCEDE until every last ballot—-provisional or otherwise—-is accounted for.

Trumpist hackers (Russian and otherwise) spread chaos. Democracy and Truth are the primary targets. It’s all right out of the Hitler/Rove playbook.

As the bigots’ bullets and pipe bombs fly, Trump is set to open fire at the southern border, filling his concentration camps with innocent kids, spewing the same race hating nationalism that’s paved the way for so many fascists before him.

This October, it’s no surprise, just business as usual for the latest dictatorial thug.

And for those of us dedicated to stopping him.

See you at the rallies, canvasses, phone banks and polling stations.
