The thing about the Democratic Left is, they will tell you exactly what they are planning to do, only they will never admit it directly.
Rather, they will concoct some seemingly wild conspiracy theory and then claim that Republicans are the ones who are really up to no good.
Case in point: Democrats for months have been claiming that President Donald Trump and his ‘surrogates’ are planning to steal the 2020 election by claiming massive voter fraud via mail-in ballots.
They have also claimed that Trump is a tyrant dictator in the making, and that after he ‘loses badly’ in November, he will claim “vote fraud” due to “mail-in balloting” and refuse to leave the White House, thus making it necessary for Democrats and their Left-wing allies to forcibly remove him.
It gets better.
Democratic operatives posing as ‘mainstream media’ journalists have, of late, begun threatening voters to cast a ballot for Biden or else ‘Democrats may refuse’ to accept another Trump victory and begin large-scale rioting and disruption of society. (Related: You now have 49 days to get your rifles ready for self-defense, and they’re probably sighted in at the WRONG range… see this important ballistics video from the Health Ranger.)
In fact, all of these things are true — with the notable exception of Trump having to steal the election. He’s very likely set to win it outright, otherwise Biden and his campaign would have not hired hundreds of lawyers to ‘contest’ balloting in battleground states since, you know, all of the polls say Biden’s walking away with the election (and doesn’t that sound familiar?).

This is a lot to unpack, but there’s more, and Michael Anton has done a lot of the heavy lifting.
In a piece for The American Mind called “The Coming Coup,” Anton lays out step-by-step what Democrats are planing for the fall, and it’s not pretty.
“As if 2020 were not insane enough already, we now have Democrats and their ruling class masters openly talking about staging a coup. You might have missed it, what with the riots, lockdowns and other daily mayhem we’re forced to endure in this, the most wretched year of my lifetime. But it’s happening,” he begins.
We already know Democrats and their Marxist Leftist cadres in the Deep State have been trying to depose Trump since he was elected. They can’t do to him what they did to John F. Kennedy and his brother, Robert Kennedy; times are much different now. The Trump-supporting public would no doubt go to war over the assassination of their president. So the deep state has had to work behind the scenes to fabricate events — the fake Russian collusion scandal; the phony impeachment; the endless accusations of scandal and malfeasance — and continually accusing Trump of being an authoritarian when, in fact, it’s the Democrat Left that is planning a violent revolution.
Anton notes further:
Over the summer, two former Army officers, both prominent in the Democrat-aligned “national security” think tank world, wrote an open letter to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs in which they urged him to deploy the 82nd Airborne Division to drag President Trump from the Oval Office at precisely 12:01 PM, January 20, 2021.
About a month later, Hillary Clinton declared publicly that Joe Biden should not concede the election “under any circumstances.” The old English major in me interprets the word “any” to mean “no,” “none,” “nada,” “niente,” “zero,” “zilch” “bupkis”…you get the idea.
This doesn’t sound like the rhetoric of a political party confident it will win an upcoming election.
Now — why would Democrats talk so openly like this? Because, as Anton notes, in order for the coup to succeed, it must not look like one.
“They need to plant the idea in the public mind, now, that their unlawful and illegitimate removal of President Trump from office will somehow be his fault. Never mind the pesky detail that the president would refuse to leave only if he were convinced he legitimately won. Remember: Biden should not concede under any circumstances,” he wrote.
And don’t think that the disgustingly dishonest media won’t play a part in all of this. Those battle lines were drawn long ago: ‘The American media’ has been in the tank for Democrats for decades. And on Election Night, their part of the coup will be to dispute the Trump victory and talk up all the ‘incoming ballots’ that Democrats ‘found’ in close states to make it appear as though Trump lost them (when he didn’t).
“For the rest of us, the most important thing we can do is raise awareness. If there is a conspiracy to remove President Trump from office even if he wins, they’re telling you about it precisely to get you ready for it, so that when it happens you won’t think it was a conspiracy; you’ll blame the president.
Don’t be fooled,” Anton concluded.
