Former Trump campaign manager Steve Bannon is already hatching another plan to take over the government, this time with the aid of what he is calling “shock troops.”
The term “shock troops” has been around for quite some time but is most identified with the Soviet and Nazi special units of soldiers such as the Waffen-SS. It’s been ten months since Trump supporters violently stormed the Capitol on January 6th in a scheme to overthrow democracy and keep Trump in power. And it looks like Bannon is still keeping the coup effort alive, all while pandering to Nazis in the process.
Bannon has apparently been meeting with many former Trump officials to prepare them for another round of a Trump presidency in which his destructive policies and anti-democratic agenda would be swiftly enacted as early as possible if Trump were to become president a second time.
“If you’re going to take over the administrative state and deconstruct it, then you have to have shock troops prepared to take it over immediately,” Bannon told NBC. “I gave ’em fire and brimstone.”
Americans dodged a bullet during Trump’s presidency because he and his team were incompetent and had little idea what they were doing. It would be different a second time around as his team would be able to swoop in immediately and undermine everything our country stands for from the start.
To that end, Bannon wants “pre-trained teams ready to jump into federal agencies” on day one.
“We’re going to have a sweeping victory in 2022, and that’s just the preamble to a sweeping victory in 2024, and this time we’re going to be ready — and have a MAGA perspective, MAGA policies, not the standard Republican policies,” he bragged.
Clearly, Trump and Bannon are still a major threat to our country. They not only tried to violently overthrow democracy in January, but they also have a plan to destroy the government and Constitution from within to create a true right-wing authoritarian state. The only way to stop them is for the Justice Department to finally arrest and prosecute them for seditious conspiracy or by Americans flocking to the ballot box to keep Democrats in power. Because our nation will not survive if Trump or a Republican like him gets back in the White House.
