I can just picture it: the administration and his idiot supporters will say the election is rigged by the "deep state", claim that the voting results are fake news, and then demand an investigation into the election results, while assclowns like Miller, Giuliani, Conway, and Fox News spin like crazy to keep the insane narrative going.

Now, do I honestly think this would happen? Probably not, as it would likely result in a full-on civil war which Trump would end up losing. But if the election results end up being as close as they were in 2016, I doubt Trump and his minions would ever concede without a fight. We think things are crazy now? 2020 is gonna be an absolute powder keg.
Yup.

Totally agree. Italy’s new far right PM just announced a plan for an ethnic census of the Roma population which has Italians similarly outraged. The moderate majority in the western world needs to set aside relatively petty differences and stamp out this trend ASAP.

Never mind results and peaceful transfer of authority, they likely take a run at postponing the election. Or pursuing lifetime appointments. Lots of work to do between now and then.

Woah! The Left wingers are out of control! Could you imagine how terrified she must be with people peacefully screaming "shame" at her!

There are people who actually think this....

No. This fascist #### has gone way too far and has to stop somewhere. This cant become the new normal. If it takes civil disobedience like this or even uncivil disobedience than so be it.

I'm ending friendships with anyone who supports this latest fiasco.

You should probably calibrate your sarcasm detector before you end any friendships.

Maybe they'll even launch an ad campaign imploring the electoral college to not follow what the voters voted for, or even have higher ups in the FBI and other governmental organizations vow to stop the incoming pressident elect from ever taking office. Oops the democrats already did that two years ago.

Trumps a clown but the rhetoric in this thread has gotten out of hand.

BOTH SIDES SAME! I too remember the great children cagings of 2016.

But seriously, no it hasn’t. There are children actively being separated from their parents for coming to the USA as refugee claimants and asylum seekers and being kept in deplorable conditions, including cages, in the United States of America. In 2018.

This #### is pretty much a line in the sand. You either speak up and realize that yes, this is right out of the nazi playbook and it’s not a problem to say so, or you stay quiet and be complicit. You know those moments where you look back and wonder “how come no one stopped it before it got out of hand?” Well, here we are. That’s not rhetoric. That’s reality. There are nazi-leaning people in the administration of the United States of America who appear to be following the playbook on subjugating the population and getting people comfortable with treating other humans like inferior garbage.

Any of this “but the left is pretty wild too” “oh but the democrats didn’t want to let him be president” blah blah blah #### is just another way of saying “I guess locking kids in cages should be put into perspective”.

OMG. Maybe we'll have Russians, likely directly coordinating with one campaign, and rogue FBI agents again likely coordinating with one campaign, and a hideously propaganda-based right-wing media campaign steal an election, dupe the uninformed electorate, and elect an utterly corrupt, venal, and completely compromised cabal of ignorant and/or morally bankrupt leaders. Oh wait...that just happened.

Or, maybe, that's the same as some FBI agents not liking a guy. Get a grip on reality.

Absolutely, except I doubt that they would lose. If it came to the worst-case scenario, the GOP has the support of the vast majority of cops, military members, and people with guns in the United States - I'd bet that a fair few of them are already champing at the bit to take out the liberals and minorities, so imagine what another two years of increasingly violent propaganda will do.

The scariest part of this whole situation is that Trump and his pals probably could impose a dictatorship by force if they wanted to, and just haven't tried it yet.

I keep wondering when the low point comes for this admin, perhaps we have this moment with Cory and his wah wah comment about a down syndrome girl taken away from her sibling and mother?

And so begins the campaign against the disabled and handicapped. I suppose we should expect Gypsies to be the next target.

Migrants from Latin America are the new gypsies. Just like the gypsies they have no specific home and follow the jobs as a means of survival. They are culturally different and persecuted for the maintenance of their own culture.

I think the next group that should be concerned are the homosexuals. They are becoming targets and the conservative appointed courts are now implementing policy more so than making judgements based on the constitution. It starts with allowing businesses to refuse services to one group of people, but that establishes the slippery slope for the quick erosion of rights across the board. As mentioned, these bellwether moments are the ones that will be used to judge us in the future.
