Trump cult calls for military coup, secession after Supreme Court loss

Trump Texas Supreme Court

The Trump cult is calling for a military coup and/or secession from the Union following their U.S. Supreme Court loss on Friday where, in a 7-2 decision, the justices rejected Trump’s latest attempt to steal the election via a Texas lawsuit seeking to overturn the outcome in four battleground states.

On Friday, the high court released a one-page opinion stating Texas didn’t have standing to sue over election procedures in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, four closely contested states that Trump won in 2016 but Joe Biden won five weeks ago.

Shortly after hearing the news of the Supreme Court decision in the Texas case, internet personalities who didn’t have a life before joining the cult, Diamond and Silk, openly called for a military coup to keep Trump in office, prompting even a Republican congressman to blast them for their obvious stupidity.

Meanwhile, Allen West, the failed TEA Party congressman and current state chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, reacted to the Supreme Court ruling against Trump with a call for a new Civil War in a statement released shortly after the ruling.


Trump spent Friday night and Saturday morning on Twitter — where else, right? — repeating the same worn-out claims about the election being stolen while attacking Republican governors he deemed unfaithful to him and for good measure, attacking the Supreme Court for being stupid cowards.

Of course, what would the cult be without Trump’s cheerleaders in the faux conservative media?

Sean Hannity was clearly angry over the Supreme Court loss, and he dedicated the beginning of his Friday show on FOX News with a rant about how the High Court’s decision was “bad news if you believe in the Constitution.”

“We start tonight with bad news if you believe in our Constitution, if you believe in a law, if you believe in equal justice, equal application of our laws, if you believe in free, fair elections that Americans can have faith in, confidence in, integrity in.

“Because tonight, that Texas suit challenging in the election results in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin was rejected by the US Supreme Court. Although they have original jurisdiction, they have refused to even hear the case.”

From there, Hannity tried to explain that since Republicans supported the ridiculous suit, the Supreme Court shouldn’t have refused to hear the case. You know, because the court is neutral and all.

“Now, remember, a very serious, legitimate challenge, garnered widespread support. 18 attorneys general, the president, six states actually joining the case, 18 states with briefs in support of the case. 126 members of congress supporting the case, including minority leader Kevin McCarthy signing on to support the brief. And they’re very real concerns, your real concerns, not even considered.”

At about the same time Hannity was spewing his nonsense, fellow FOX News personality and co-owner of the pro-Trump echo chamber at Blaze TV, Mark Levin, declared that the Supreme Court may have just “ruined itself” in their refusal to hear the lawsuit filed by the state of Texas.

A few members of the cult held a small rally in support of their messiah in Washington on Saturday where notable disciples like Roger Stone and Michael Flynn — two recent recipients of presidential pardons for crimes they committed on Trump’s behalf — led the congregation in praise and worship. During his time behind the microphone, Flynn — who recently called on Trump to declare martial law and hold a new election — had this to say about the Supreme Court loss:

“The courts do not decide who the next president of the United States will be.

“I will say, there are paths that are still in play . . . there’s a lot of activity that’s still playing out.”

Serving as master of ceremonies at the Trump cult rally (known as the Jericho March) was none other than Eric Metaxas, a prominent member of the Fellowship of the Pharisees.

In his Sunday newsletter, David French wrote about “The Dangerous Idolatry of Christian Trumpism” and how so-called evangelicals like Metaxas aren’t only destroying our Republic, but destroying the Christian faith as well.

As I type this newsletter, I am following along with a D.C. event called the Jericho March. Eric Metaxas, a prominent Christian radio host, former featured speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast, and the best-selling author of Bonhoeffer is the master of ceremonies; former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is a featured speaker. The event also includes a flyover from Marine One, the president’s helicopter.

Flynn, readers may remember, recently called for the president to implement “limited martial law” to hold a new election. Metaxas told the president himself in a radio interview: “I’d be happy to die in this fight.” He said, “This is a fight for everything.”

Last week Metaxas also interviewed Charlie Kirk, the co-founder of Turning Point USA and a frequent featured speaker in American churches. As my friend Rod Dreher reported, Metaxas made a series of stunning statements about the election:

“It’s like stealing the heart and soul of America. It’s like holding a rusty knife to the throat of Lady Liberty.”

“You might as well spit on the grave of George Washington.”

“This is evil. It’s like somebody has been raped or murdered. … This is like that times a thousand.”

And here’s what he says about Americans who disagree, who believe that Trump lost the election:

Everybody who is not hopped up about this … you are the Germans that looked the other way when Hitler was preparing to do what he was preparing to do. Unfortunately, I don’t see how you can see it any other way.

That’s right, you’re like the Germans who didn’t object to the rise of Hitler. And is this deep conviction built on unassailable evidence of mass fraud? No, not at all. He doesn’t even really care about the courts:

So who cares what I can prove in the courts? This is right. This happened, and I am going to do anything I can to uncover this horror, this evil.

Later he says, “We need to fight to the death, to the last drop of blood, because it’s worth it.”

The Electoral College Votes are official today, but we are nowhere near exhausting the Trump cult’s bottomless supply of crazy. Trump himself continues to rail against reality and signaled over the weekend that he will continue to challenge the results of the election.

In a FOX News interview that aired yesterday morning, Trump repeated his claims of election fraud and said his legal team will keep pursuing challenges despite the Supreme Court’s dismissal of the long-shot bid led by the Texas attorney general to overturn the results in four states that President-elect Joe Biden won.

“No, it’s not over,” Trump told host Brian Kilmeade in the interview, which was taped Saturday at the Army-Navy game at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. “We keep going, and we’re going to continue to go forward. We have numerous local cases. We’re, you know, in some of the states that got rigged and robbed from us. We won every one of them. We won Pennsylvania. We won Michigan. We won Georgia by a lot.”

Trump renewed his accusations of fraud, called the election “a sham and a shame,” and dismissed concerns that his actions are driving Americans further apart. “I worry about the country having an illegitimate president. That’s what I worry about. A president that lost and lost badly. This wasn’t, like, a close election. … I didn’t lose. The election was rigged.”

126 pro-Trump Republican members of the House — that’s nearly two-thirds of the House GOP — endorsed the absurd Texas lawsuit that would have disenfranchised tens of millions of American voters, as did 18 GOP attorneys general. Additionally, these traitors to the Constitution received the support of the every faction of the Trump cult, including the faux conservative media and the Fellowship of the Pharisees.

This is, literally, the post-constitutional Republican Party that Trump has rebranded into his own image.

Trump’s word remains the gospel for the Trump cult who still dominate the GOP. That means this isn’t over, and it won’t be over for a long, long time.
