You and I have heard the word "coup" hundreds of times yet we never imagined it could happen here in America...a coup pulled off so subtly the word "coup" barely came to mind!
Maybe I'm slow on the uptake but it didn't quite hit me until last week that what Joe and his ilk did was a bona fide, honest, forthright, upright, downright coup d'etat!
Just because the military wasn't involved, doesn't mean it wasn't a coup.
Just because a General drunk on power didn't install himself in the White House, doesn't mean it wasn't a coup.
Just because it was (almost) bloodless, doesn't mean it wasn't a coup.
We've been calling it "voter fraud" but that's a euphemism. It sanitizes and downplays what really happened: A proper coup d'etat.
Instead of a power-hungry general, they installed a wobbly old man. Instead of the military backing him, there were thousands of Soccer Moms and Softball Dads quietly committing treason as Election Judges.
We didn't think it could happen because Americans are a genteel, peaceful, civilized people. And so the coup was genteel, peaceful and civilized. It was conducted intellectually with thousands of bits of paper erroneously called "valid ballots."
And now they have the bloody gall to Project their coup onto General Flynn and the Patriots in DC on January 6th.
Is there anything these people won't stoop to?
Sorry, my bad. Stupid question. There's nothing they won't stoop to!
Redefining Coup d'état
Maybe I didn't quite connect the dots because, strictly speaking, the current dramatic dictionary definition of coup d'état doesn't exactly match what Joe and his ilk did.
You could argue there wasn't a "forceful change" nor an "overthrow" of government as we still have the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches appearing to function as normal. There also wasn't physical force nor was the coup particularly sudden! That was their genius: slipping their coup slowly and gradually into the election/inauguration season.
Like "Biden" himself, this was a long, slow, subtle, shuffling, non-dramatic coup d'etat against a sitting, beloved President which makes it so much worse.
Somebody notify the Oxford English Dictionary! "Coup d'état" needs to be re-defined. Even Wikipedia's got it wrong!
There's a name missing from that list. Waz his name??? Oh yeah! "Joe Biden." Quick! Somebody with Wikipedia access should add him to this list! Something like this...
Now the Left has taken their exaggeration a step further by calling it a coup. A coup!
"Riot" (it wasn't!) wasn't good enough for them. "Insurrection" (it wasn't!) wasn't extreme enough either. Now they've gone whole hog and are projecting what they actually did onto the Patriots.
And just like that, they showed their hand! As Q says, "These people are stupid." (#4323; emphasis mine)
Did Q See This Coming?
We shouldn't really be surprised though. Q (remember them?) told us the Left would attempt an Impeachment and follow that up with Projection.
Projection just happens to be something I know a little about. I first encountered the term "projection" in 2013 while studying Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) as part of my recovery from 30+ years of Narcissistic Abuse...which then led into five years writing about NPD for PsychCentral.
Projection is when you take your crimes, your sins, your wrongdoing and mentally convince yourself (and verbally convince others) that someone else did what you actually did.
Projection is not "The Devil made me do it." Not at all! Projection is a sick mental game wherein you don't own up to what you did in the slightest. You actually say that someone else did it to distract from your sin and assuage your own conscience.
An example, you say? Gladly.
Projection is a promiscuous parent convincing themselves, and telling everyone, that their teenager is a "whore"...when actually their teen is still a virgin while the parent is sleeping around. (Can't tell you how many wounded ladies have told me their NPD parent actually did that to them. It's Page #1 from NPD parents' playbook.)
Projection is a pornography addict claiming you'll become (or are) addicted to porn too...even if you've never seen it. (True story. Happened to me!)
Projection is a rebellious person who can't get along with anyone, especially their bosses, informing you that you have a problem with authority. (Ditto.)
While those examples seem bizarre, they're ordinary examples of projection and exactly what the Left is doing to Patriots now.
Projection is also the last, most obvious and glaringly pathetic self-defense of the guilty. The humorous part is they don't even realize they just admitted to their own wrongdoing! Projection is almost as good as a deathbed confession signed in blood!
Like I said before, if the Left hadn't projected the word "coup d'état" onto General Flynn and the Patriots last week, it may never have struck me so forcefully that that's exactly what they did!
Restoring the president and government they overthrew would not be a coup d'état. It wouldn't even be altering and abolishing. It would be lovingly restoring us to the Constitutional Republic of our Founding. There's not even a smidegeon of coup d'état in that!
Just like all narcissists, they reveal their guilt through Projection. By accusing us of committing a coup they reveal that they know what they did and we know what they did and they know that we know what they did and...oh! somebody stop me!
We've got 'em dead-to-rights and they're panicking. They've used the last arrow in their pathetic little quiver: Projection.
Maybe we should stop talking about "voter fraud, voter fraud, voter fraud" and start talking "coup d'état, coup d'état, coup d'état." Call a spade, a spade, Patriots!
We didn't think a coup d'état could happen here in America.
But it did.
And it must never, ever happen again.
