Yeah, it's pretty silly expect this to move fast. Watergate took two years.

Yes, the coup is moving slowly, but it's snowballing. Conservative pundit Pat Buchanan has thrown in the towel and is asking what happens next.

So calling this a coup is really overblown. Especially since everything is happening through the completely normal means of government and society.

For some people, a "coup" is defined simply as a government change they don't approve of. I'd definitely put Buchanan in that camp given that he's a fanatical ideologue.

Speaking of which, the rightwing nutjobs (RWNJ set) were calling Obama's electoral victory a coup, so I think this just illustrations Buchanan's wingnut credentials rather than anything else.

Btw, I think it is telling that I consider Trump to have a whole lot more integrity than Buchanan.

There is a coup, but it's a mafia/capitalist coup against our democracy.

A Nazi just killed a protester in Virginia. The President condemned "violence on all sides."

Do they know the identity of the driver yet?

I thought the most telling moment was the question "Mr. President, do you want the support of these white nationalist groups who say they support you?"

And then Trump just walked out of the room.

How does a group get permission to have a Nazi Parade/Rally with lit torches at night on a state university campus?
