Dreaming of a Leninist Revolution in America? It starts “from the ground up”!! Sounds like Trump and Bannon are recalling the KKK and right-wing militia back to councils, PTAs and local white churches. Bring your weapons is recommended!!  Yet he and Trump deny they incite violence.

At least 8,500 new Republican precinct officers (or equivalent lowest-level officials) joined those county parties. We also looked at equivalent Democratic posts and found no similar surge.” Schultz has also advocated that those who obtain these local Republican Party positions should be prepared to inflict violence in carrying out their roles, telling supporters during a July conference call, “Make sure everybody’s got a baseball bat. … I’m serious about this. Make sure you’ve got people who are armed.” Bannon’s hosting of Schultz on his broadcast has been credited with the popularization of the so-called “independent legislature doctrine,” a radical and previously obscure legal theory that would allow a state legislature to unilaterally overturn election results — an anti-democratic concept that has been embraced by many state Republican legislators in the wake of Trump’s loss in the 2020 presidential election. In a new statement, Trump yesterday cited Schultz by name and touted his “precinct strategy” as a way that “we can take back our great Country from the ground up.”
