As frustrated conservatives continue to accuse the media of unfair coverage of the presidential election, while insisting that the ballots will be ‘rigged by the establishment’, democrats are worried that gun-wielding right-wingers will attempt some kind of a coup d’etat if Hillary wins. Donald Trump has helped legitimize the conspiracy theories about election rigging by repeatedly bringing it up at his rallies, and refusing to pledge to accept the democratic vote.
Militias across America, largely made up of angry white men, are becoming increasingly emboldened and self-righteous, as Trump continues to give their extreme views a mainstream platform. ‘Open-carry’ protests are becoming frequent, in which conservatives march with loaded rifles on their backs, in an attempt to intimidate their political opponents. Huge sections of the police and veterans have also been captured by Trump’s dark rhetoric, and intelligence experts believe that rogue factions may be planning an act of civil disobedience if Hillary wins.
Numerous reports also suggest that aggressive conservative groups are planning to racially profile Hispanics on election day, and demand to see proof of citizenship, in an act reminiscent of Nazi Germany. The threat of violence and intimidation has become so dire, that the UN has decided to step in this year and send accredited monitors to oversee our elections, in order to make sure that democrats feel safe enough to vote.
Those who believe in democracy need to stand up to these violent and extreme segments of society, and make sure that the democratic vote is honored. We need a trustworthy, loyal defense force in place, to uphold our laws and prevent a violent uprising when Hillary wins. Soldiers and cops need to be vetted for their political views, and we need to increase the usage of drones for peacekeeping, as unlike men, drones always follow orders. The NSA also needs to become more proactive, and use their power to infiltrate and sabotage right-wing domestic terrorist groups before they become an imminent threat to our democracy. We must pull out all the stops in order to ensure that this election runs smoothly, and that the will of the people is upheld, which as accredited polls clearly show, is to elect Hillary as our President this November.
