Leftist groups are currently planning to secretly carry out a plan to mobilize in the face of what would be a violent “political apocalypse” should Democratic candidate Joe Biden fail to win over President Donald Trump in the upcoming November election.
According to The Daily Beast, the coalition of progressive groups led by the organization Fight Back Table met last week on the Zoom platform to plan a possible scenario if the elections do not reach a clear result.
Fight Back Table is a consortium of MoveOn, Color of Change, and the American Federation of Teachers (with involvement from Transition Integrity). It has founded a Democracy Defense Nerve Center to fight a red-state revolt aimed at illegally keeping Trump in power, according to RedState.
Rosa Brooks, a Georgetown University law professor and co-founder of Transition Integrity Project wrote in her editorial that only a “landslide for Joe Biden” would lead to “a relatively orderly transfer of power.”
As The Daily Beast indicated, during the fall of last year, the Fight Back Table planned a smaller scale meeting to discuss post-election measures. However, the meeting was eventually postponed due to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus pandemic (COVID-19).
During the meeting, where the coalition of more than 50 leftist organizations met, participants addressed the question of what the progressive political ecosystem can do functionally under a range of electoral scenarios, according to The Daily Beast.
They reportedly discussed forming a multi-state communications arm to fight misinformation, a training program to implement nonviolent civil disobedience, and the rationale for carrying out “mass public riots.”
They also reportedly reviewed a report on the Transitional Integrity Project (TIP), a bipartisan initiative formed in 2019, which took the time to analyze the various election scenarios, announcing the potential for chaos and corruption that lay ahead.
If the election results prove a win for President Trump, the coalition could take a page from TIP’s war games election report. It urges Biden to pressure the western states, namely California and Oregon, to “secede from the Union.” That’s unless their potential demands for reform—abolishing the Electoral College, dividing California into five states, and statehood for Puerto Rico and D.C.—are met, according to The Daily Beast.
A source familiar with the Democracy Defense Nerve Center spoke about the operations to be implemented and said they should keep the mess down and shut down society for weeks.
Democratic Party legislators are concerned about the consequences that could be unleashed by the statements of President Donald Trump. The president has pointed out that the mail vote, promoted mainly by the Democrats, could represent a potential danger to democracy, alleging possible fraud.
President Trump suggested Wednesday that supporters should try voting twice, by mail and in person, to test electoral systems’ ability to detect fraud, prompting an outcry from state officials who warned that casting more than one vote is illegal, The Hill reported.
