Trump’s Beer Hall Putsch: Is He Channeling Hitler or Pere Ubu?


By Kevin BarrettVeterans Today Editor

Adolf Hitler’s Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 was the quintessential failed coup. Armed Nazi thugs muscled their way into a beer hall where the State Commissioner was giving a speech. Hitler, who couldn’t make himself heard over the crowd noise, fired a shot into the ceiling and screamed:

“The national revolution has broken out! The hall is surrounded by six hundred men. Nobody is allowed to leave.”

Though he managed to give a speech, and took some hostages, the coup fell apart in 24 hours. Hitler wound up serving eight months in prison, during which he wrote Mein Kampf and dreamed of better coup plans. Ten years later, Hitler’s brain trust organized a false flag attack on the German Reichstag (the German equivalent to the US Capitol) and seized absolute power.

Donald Trump just tried something roughly similar at the US capitol. Unlike Hitler at the beer hall, Trump didn’t have the courage to put himself on the line. So he incited his followers to storm the Capitol—then scurried off to hide in the White House basement. Judging from the pictures, most of Trump’s followers would have had a hard time gaining entrance to a respectable beer hall. How they got into the capitol carrying combat weapons, somehow avoiding metal detectors, is a mystery.

If Trump serves prison time, an increasingly likely possibility, at least we can all rest assured that he won’t write a Trumpian version of Mein Kampf. The semi-literate narcissist-in-chief can barely scratch his name in mud with a stick.

If America is going to have a Hitler, it will have to be someone with at least 50 IQ points on Donald Trump. Meanwhile, get ready for the Dems and their mighty wurlitzer MSM to blame “conspiracy theorists” for everything and become ten times as repressive as Fuhrer Trump would have been.

    I’m calling B.S. From reports by eyewitnesses, a group of “out of place” and costumed (deep state sponsored?) provocateurs hi-jacked the situation and sabotaged Trump’s speech to his crowd prior to his completing his presentation by inciting a portion of the crowd leave prematurely, later arriving at the capital and involving in the “mob” that was welcomed into the building. It was reported that Trump was believed to have been planning to lead what was a very peaceful but enthusiastic crowd toward the Capital but this was co-opted by the above machinations. The events that occurred at the Capital, despite the clearly orchestrated MSM chorus of distorted and false narrative, is a very evident staged false flag event.

    One doesn’t have to be a “Trumper” to see the false flag involved, but it helps to not let personal repugnance for DT blind one’s self to the evidence. Or to see that DT has been a rare speed bump that has impeded the unholy alliance that is taking America and the world down the road to a total fascist dystopia. Perhaps some of us are falling victim to a preemptive Stockholm syndrome prior to the full-fledged installation of the coming policies that will likely give cause for that affliction for many of us who don’t already suffer it.

    I’m no fan of Trump, but I do see the patently obvious industrial-level election fraud against him (and consequently, our “democratic republic”) as the nest inline false flag/coup d’etat by the same contingent that effected the JFk assassination and 911. And they hope it to be the coup de gras, not only for DT but for our constitutional freedoms to be replaced by their technocratic wet dream. Who are “they”? I’m coming to share the point of view on this historic progression explicated by the LaRouchePAC crowd. It lines up quite consistently with history once a deeper look is taken than the propaganda version we’ve been force fed affords. I would strongly encourage someone trying to make sense of the nonsense we’ve been led to believe for decades (longer actually) to avail themselves of the historical understanding supported through the LaRouchePAC educational materials.

    Kevin nails the most important point here…it will be “THE LEFT”…that calls for censorship of our free speech! Again: THE LEFT!!!

    No real surprise here because the “LEFT” has been co-opted into being “The WAR PARTY” since the 70s! Again: THE LEFT!!!

    An FYI:

    The lack of organized police force resistance to the Trumpsters on 1/6/2021 is quite similar to the lack of air defenses on 9/11/2001. Each event ended up a TRAP. On 9/11/2001, the trap was directed at the citizens of the USofA which worked perfectly because we gave up our 1st and 4th Amendment rights via the Patriot Act.

    And regarding 1/6/2021, just standby to see what other “rights” the citizens of the USofA will gladly give up in order to appease their FEARS of white male supremacists taking over. Even though they are but a very, very small minority of our entire citizenship. rdh

    As on 9/11/2001, the attacks were well chronicled WELL BEFORE THEY HAPPENED. Translation: Ditto regarding the Trumpsters well known plans for 1/6/2021.

    I thought I might have been the only one to see the parallels of Trump and Hitler, fortunately the US Government held strong but another attempt from one on his enablers or relatives is not beyond the realms of possibility as Hitler
    ultimately succeeded years later. As an Australian I have watched the politics of the USA and find it hard to understand the enablers of Trump and his lies, we have them here in Australia of course but they are fortunately in a mini

    The Trump supporters were enabled to enter the Capitol building because the Capitol police let them in, opened doors, allow their entry. A picture of a half naked guy with bison horns standing at the head of the Congress podium shows how far the United States has slipped into being a Banana Republic. It’s dangerous to leave Trump in power for another two weeks because in that time he can incite further riots.
