At some point we need to talk about emotional and social dysregulation as a feature of the MAGA crowd.

You can be pissed that they exist but there are a LOT of them and they are in your families and sit in your church pews and process your paychecks and work in your schools.
In the 60s, communication scholars shied away from studying social movements because they freaked about: Black activists, women, queers people, and labor folks making emotional appeals
They also bought into a bunch of (mostly pop) psychology about how social movements created groupthink and cults of personality.

Also: when liberals/lefties produce fantasies about a potential coup, they are participating in REALIZING A COUP.

That's why professors of rhetoric CAUTION against that kind of SPECULATION. It makes the possibility more likely because people see it as a legitimate outcome.
People want to Be Prepared. I get it. But it's been 4 years. Read some Siskind, FFS. These are not new shenanigans.

But the power is in the FANTASIZING about a MORE destabilized federal government and that's EXACTLY what's going down with the QAnoners and the Parler fascists.
Cool, calm, collected is how you manage the outrage machine. You don't doing by freaking out the anxious libs. You do it by calmly asserting power.

Combatting the misinformation of Trump Administration (even in the transition) has to be focused on:

1.) repeating the facts (Biden won, Biden won with the most votes ever, Biden won the EC, there is no legal standing for the frivolous lawsuits, etc.)
2.) reasserting organizational norms about the secretaries of state and election commissioners across the US and their deep investment in fair elections
3.) shoring up support for US marshals to remove Trump from the White House, if they need to

PLEASE DO NOT LEAN INTO COUP SPECULATION BECAUSE IT LEGITIMIZES COUP SPECULATION
TRUMP IS TWEETING AND GOLFING HE IS NOT MASTERMINDING SOME BRILLIANT SHIT STOP GIVING HIM CREDIT FOR IDEAS AND PLANS AND STUFF
The time to talk about coup things was BEFORE THE ELECTION.

The election is over. Biden won decisively. We rep strength now only.

I would like to tell you a story about America:

I wrote an essay in 2016 about how Bernie channeled white rage in a way that stole energy from Trump and short-circuited the fascist impulse among the mad-sad whites.
But the democratic party didn't choose to channel the mad-sad, it picked technocrat, nuance pantsuit lady.
And the mad-sad fascists multiplied under the incompetent narcissist tv fellow.

At the risk of being a killjoy, successful coups aren't accidentally launched from landscaping businesses.
Also, could the Dems just carry themselves with the BDE of the Lt. Gov. of PA?
WHY WOULD ANYONE LET TRUMP'S FOOLISHNESS STEAL THE JOY OF CRUSHING HIS SAD ASS? PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHY ANYONE WOULD GIVE THAT POWER AWAY
