Black Lives Matter leader warns of military coup if Trump wins in November
Shaun King

On Friday, Black Lives Matter leader Shaun King said that the United States could easily see a military coup if Donald Trump wins the presidency in November.

King shared the threat in the form of a tweet, writing:

If Donald Trump becomes President, you are fooling yourself if you think we’re far from having a coup our own selves. I’m dead serious.

A post at Red Alert Politics noted:

This isn’t the first time King has said a President Trump could lead to violence. In a May 9 article in the Daily News, the activist stated that anarchists might vote for the billionaire because his presidency would result in a civil war.

It’s strange that a movement that claims they want to fight injustice peacefully is willing to countenance a spokesman who repeatedly fantasizes about civil wars and uprisings that would lead to death and destruction.

Strange, indeed.

Keep in mind this is the group that Barack Obama has embraced as part of an effort to “reform” police departments across the country.

Reaction to King’s tweet was pretty much what you’d expect:

A post at the Gateway Pundit asks:

Imagine the media’s reaction a few years back if someone from the Tea Party threatened a coup over Obama’s presidency. Do you think it would be ignored?

Of course it wouldn’t. It would be major headline news for weeks and the topic of numerous MSNBC panel discussions.

But since it came from a leader of Black Lives Matter, it gets a pass.

Apparently, these aren’t the droids we’re looking for.
