Flynn was asked, “Why can’t what happened in Myanmar happen here?”
The crowd at the Texas QAnon Treacherous Madness Conference cheered, and Flynn replied, “No reason. I mean, it should happen here. “
Who will tell Flynn that members of the military strongly disapproved of Trump and that many of them voted for Joe Biden?
Mike Flynn should be in jail by now.
He advocates the violent overthrow of the US government, which is a crime.
It is dangerous to dismiss the QAnon crowd as a bunch of rioters. These people embody the threat to democracy in the United States. They are also the backbone of the Republican Party.
You don’t believe in democracy. QAnon has been a right-wing extremist conspiracy belief that manifests itself in its logical outcome for decades.
A group of Americans cheered when the idea of a military coup arose.
