Roger Stone advocates Trump seizing power if he loses.

Convicted felon Roger Stone, who was pardoned by Trump is telling the president to declare martial law, arrest those opposed to him, and seize control of the country if he loses the election.

Stone was (is?) a campaign advisor to Trump and made his statements on the InfoWars program of far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Stone avoided 40 months in prison thanks to Trump, who commuted his sentence in July. Stone was convicted of seven federal felonies, including lying to Congress and witness tampering.

The results will only be legitimate if the “real winner” — Trump — takes office, regardless of what the votes say, Stone declared. A loss would apparently be justification for Trump to use force to take over the nation.

To safeguard Trump’s position, Stone called for federal authorities to seize ballots in Nevada, for FBI agents to physically block certain voters from casting their ballots, and for Trump to use his powers for widespread arrests to solidify his power. He demanded that “the ballots in Nevada on election night should be seized by federal marshals” and not counted, claiming with absolutely no evidence that “they are completely corrupted.”

If protesting around BLM and random anti-Trumpness this summer as shown us anything, the OPPOSITE is true.

They appear to either be all about, or curiously SILENT when the armed, jackbooted thugs roll into town so long as the armed, jackbooted thugs profess to hit the Play button for the Approved List of Grievances concerning "socialism," "personal freedom" and random platitudes against "violence."
