A former top-ranking Obama official has revealed that the Democratic Party is prepared to support a “revolution” in the streets to force Donald Trump out of office if he wins re-election this fall.
It’s a familiar face: Former Secretary of State John Kerry.
He signaled that party leaders will support a violent “revolution,” if that’s what it takes.
Kerry hedged his support for overthrowing the government by saying that Republicans are suppressing the votes of minorities.
“Certain officials of a particular party purposefully [make] it difficult for the other party to vote where they control those matters,” Kerry said during a video link to the Copenhagen Democracy Summit.
Kerry hinted that the GOP had rigged the 2000 election against Al Gore and the 2004 election — which he lost — and then cost Democrat Stacey Abrams her 2018 race for governor of Georgia against Brian Kemp. Multiple investigations into alleged voter fraud or suppression during all three elections came up empty-handed.
But Kerry said the President would bring a revolution on himself — and that America’s founders would be marching in the streets with the Democratic shock troops to overthrow the democratically elected president in 2021. “If people don’t have adequate access to the ballot, I mean that’s the stuff on which revolutions are built,” he said. “If you begin to deny people the capacity of your democracy to work, even the Founding Fathers wrote in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, we have an inherent right to challenge that.”
Kerry added that he’s “worried” that more American votes feel like the GOP is trying to sideline their votes and are becoming “disaffected,” although it’s not clear how making baseless allegations would calm that situation.
Kerry joins a long and growing list of liberal Democrats who call for the 2016 election to be overturned, by a violet coup or uprising, if necessary. In April, former Jimmy Carter speechwriter Hendrik Hertzberg asked if it is “time for a military coup?”
The same day, a deep-pocketed venture capitalist named Nick Hanauer asked, “At what point do the Joint Chiefs of Staff just come to terms with the fact that the POTUS has lost his marbles and is insane, and just take him out?”
The assault on the presidency and democratic norms isn’t new.
One of the most outspoken supporters of the Trump impeachment, far-left Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., tweeted: “Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!”
President Trump has turned the system upside down — Deep State operatives don’t appreciate it.
Retired Army Brigadier General Anthony Tata has warned that “deep state cabal” is trying to overthrow the president even now. One of the prime conspirators is former Obama administration official and Communist Party voter John Brennan, who said that President Trump’s actions were “nothing short of treason.” That implies Brennan believes Trump should be overthrown, or worse, Tata said. “He ran the CIA. He’s committed multiple crimes,” Tata said. “He has the network to do what he threatens.”

The media have tried to make Gen. Tata a laughingstock. But you don’t need top secret intelligence clearance to know high-placed people want to pry Trump out of office by any means necessary: You can read their own words.
Hollywood celebrities have also walked — or stomped on — the thin line between legal advocacy and illegal calls for insurrection.
Actor Alec Baldwin, who often carictures President Trump on Saturday Night Live, demanded that the American people “overthrow” President Trump, but he seemed to catch himself and say he meant only a peaceful uprising.
“It is time to overthrow the government of Donald Trump — not in a violent way or unlawful way — but it must be overthrown nonetheless,” he said.
Comedian Sarah Silverman went further, saying, “Once the military is with us, fascists get overthrown.” Trump, whom she called a “mad king” will “go bye bye.”
Whether alive or dead, she didn’t say.
The Democrats’ support for a violent revolution in the streets makes the Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots seem even more dangerous — or possibly a sign of things to come.
