The Central Committee to Protect Journalists has confirmed that it will move forward with a “Military Coup for Press Freedom” when President Donald Trump wins the election in November.
The Committee first broached the idea in 2018 after giving Trump the “Press Oppressors” award failed to result in the long-awaited coup predicted by the Resistance.
At the time, CCPJ spokesman Josef Guevara said a military coup was needed because the president had “gone out of his way to attack the press and undermine the norms that support freedom of the media.”
The need for a coup is more urgent in 2020, the Committee said.
“When Joe Biden fails to win the election and Amy Coney Barrett takes Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court, America will absolutely need a military coup to protect freedom of the press, the separation of powers guaranteed by the Constitution, and democracy itself,” Guevara said.
The 2018 CCPJ Press Oppressors awards identified Trump and other world leaders including Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Turkey.
