Now that Trump is sending actual troops into our streets, the shape of his planned coup d'e'tat is becoming ever clearer.

A critical piece will be an outright armed assault on the polling places during this fall's election.

Trump's GOP has already raised $20 million for anti-democracy lawsuits. While claiming the fall election will be "rigged," Trump's minions say they'll raise a 50,000-strong vigilante army to terrorize "suspicious" (i.e., young, non-white, non-millionaire) voters at the polls.

Here's the premise:

On November 3, thousands of KKK/Gestapo-style "Trump volunteers" will swarm over the usual long lines in critical swing state/minority-heavy precincts. We've seen their neo-Nazi ilk in Charlottesville, among the Proud Boys, etc.

Many will be armed and dressed in military garb. Lacking legal credentials, but likely at gunpoint, they'll demand ID and other "proof" of voter qualifications.

Their purpose will be to drive away potential anti-Trump voters and turn the election into chaos.

This country has a long history of organized, violent assault at the polls. In the 1800s, countless black citizens were murdered on election day or just prior because they intended to vote. They were routinely shot or lynched by the Ku Klux Klan and other White Supremacist terrorists.

Historians often portray the slaughter as random racism. But KKK terror/lynching has been very political, primarily aimed to undermine the black community's potential power.

Team Trump clearly intends to do it again this fall.

There's been an early warning. Last year the gerrymandered Ohio Legislature passed a $1 billion bailout for two dying nuke reactors on Lake Erie. Outraged opponents petitioned for a statewide referendum to overturn the hated rip-off.

Polls showed a popular vote would bury the bailout while arousing a strong left constituency for the 2020 election.
