WATCH: James O’Keefe hypes up ‘literal revolt’ of infuriated internet users if Trump loses

Published

on

Right-wing video ambush artist James O’Keefe predicts that there will be a “revolt” if Donald Trump ends up losing the election — but it won’t be the kind that involves pitchforks and torches.

Rather, “the people” will choose to revolt in a style more fitting with the 21st Century — by writing mean tweets.

Media Matters notes that during an interview with Alex Jones on Thursday, O’Keefe outlined exactly what would happen if Trump lost the election due to widespread voter fraud. O’Keefe said things would get ugly fast, as red-blooded Americans rushed to express their outrage by spamming Twitter with furious Pepe the Frog memes.

“We are witnessing a populist revolt on social media,” he said. “People don’t give a crap what The New York Times says, they don’t believe them anymore. So if you have 50 to 100 million people in this country who have no one to speak for them what’s going to happen to those people? I think that’s a powerful movement of people that are going to literally revolt. It’s not going to be with pitchforks, I think it’s going to be on social — I think it’s going to be on media.”

Fellow Trump supporter Roger Stone then explained to Jones how he planned to document “election fraud” this year by taking his own exit polls at polling places and comparing the results to the final tallies. The biggest concern, he said, wasn’t standard “voter fraud” tactics, but machines switching people’s votes.

At issue, the report notes, is that millions of dollars were spent in North Carolina where a smaller event will now be held, and now the party is, in essence, forced to pay for a second convention.

Making things worse, within minutes of Ivanka's tweet it was announced that Kimberly Guilfoyle, a Trump campaign official and girlfriend of Don Trump Jr., tested positive for the coronavirus.

Donald Trump is the 21st-century Jefferson Davis– and history will judge him

On Friday, Donald Trump and his wife Melania attended an early Independence Day celebration held at Mount Rushmore.

This article first appeared on Salon.

There were fireworks, a military flyover, and "patriotic" songs such as "The Star-Spangled Banner".

The entire spectacle embodied the worst kind of superficial juvenile patriotism.

More than 130,000 Americans are dead from the coronavirus pandemic. The country teeters on the edge of a second Great Depression. A neofascist regime rules in Washington. Donald Trump is in thrall to Vladimir Putin and Russia and in doing so actively betrays the United States and the American people.
