The 2020 fascist coup plot in Michigan

The exposure of a plot to assassinate Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has uncovered the existence of a nationwide underground far-right terror network. Trump is plotting an attempt to ignore the results of the election on November 3 and use fascist forces in a bid to stay in power.

The militias are also the spearhead of the ruling class’ policy of “herd immunity.” They are being mobilized to threaten violence against officials responsible for implementing even the most mild lockdown measures in order to force the entire country back to work.
