A failure of Democracy

So what do you call it when a democratically elected leader is forced out of office through violence? Yup, it’s called a “coup” from the “coup d’etat” which is evidently French for “stroke of the state” which like the “coup de grace” is cutting off the head of the beast.

So, can we all agree that a coup is a failure of Democracy? Yes? Good.

Democrats absolutely love Democracy right? It’s right there in their party title, right? Strangely enough, liberals (aka Democrats) talking about a coup has become rather common lately.

And insanely enough, a liberal saying that it is Trump who is getting ready to pull a coup (which is a bit insane, because he isn’t going to replace himself through force) https://medium.com/@yonatanzunger/trial-balloon-for-a-coup-e024990891d5#.t640tpey2

So….why do people who supposedly love democracy have lots of wishful thinking about a coup going on right now?

“No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?” Animal Farm, chapter 9, by George Orwell

Well, here we are. The “Comrade Napoleons” of the world have decided that we have decided wrong, and are now publicly fantasizing about removing the “wrong decision” from power by force. I’m not sure if this is one of the “Five Stages of Grief” or not, but so far it looks like the Ctrl-Left is simply talking through their power fantasies as a way to forestall getting to “acceptance.”

On the other hand, should any of those nitwits be serious about a coup…well I guess they’ll just have to destroy Democracy to save it. Although the Ctrl-Left didn’t like the idea of “having to burn the village to save it” in Vietnam, and made that a cultural touchpoint to show exactly how evil those vile military people were.

It’s a good thing Liberals suck at tactics. If they were serious about this they wouldn’t be talking in an open forum. Kinda like those all the “Threepers” who never seem to be in the right place and time to disobey any un-Constitutional orders. People who are talking, generally aren’t shooting. And I think that’s a good thing.

    Yeah, I just had an Ctrl-Left employee quit due to the potential, future oppressive government that they currently need to protest against. Of which, me and my patriarchy were cramping her style (menstrual pun intended). I wished her luck in her future ventures but thought in my head that if you want to be treated equally, then wearing a vagina hat does not necessarily give you any right to complain about the guys in the shop making crude jokes. The Ctrl-Left is a disease that has a cure, unfortunately like zombies the only known cure to date involves lead and velocity

      Rule of thumb in politics, the group mentioned in the title of a nation have damn near no political power. That goes especially for “Democratic” and “Peoples.” Which is why I’m glad for “Republics”
