Almost a third of Americans could imagine supporting a military coup against their own government, according to a new poll.
The YouGov survey showed 29% of Americans could imagine supporting a coup. Yet, 41% said they could not imagine supporting such an event.
YouGov, which conducts internet polls about “politics, public affairs, products, brands and other topics of general interest”, surveyed 1,000 people online on the issue.
They found that 43% of Republicans would support a military coup in certain instances, while only 20% of Democrats and 29% of independents would.
The overall numbers increased when participants were “asked whether they would hypothetically support the military stepping in to take control from a civilian government which is beginning to violate the constitution”. 43% said yes to this, and 29% said no.
Well that's comforting.
And yet where were these people when the Bush administration lied us into an illegal war, started its own propaganda program to hide that fact, and created a program to spy on the American people?
Oh that's right. That was all done by a white guy in the White House.
The idea that these idiots want to overthrow THIS government, which has worked tirelessly to repair the damage left by the last administration, stop the wars, and create millions of new jobs, and not the one that almost bankrupted the country, and was responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans, is proof positive that their motivation has nothing to do with merit and everything to do with skin color.
