FBI attack on Mar-A-Lago reminds immigrant of Cuba 1959

"But revolutions and coup plots do not happen overnight. They take months and even years of planning, with most of the heavy lifting of infiltrating and taking over the institutions performed while the masses are sound asleep, busy making money, raising families, enjoying the good times that a free society offers them."

A lot of Americans are saying they woke up this morning, August 9, and did not recognize the country in which they have lived their entire lives.

I received a text from one friend whose family escaped Cuba before the communist revolution there. The text was very short:


“Cuba 1959.”


I believe there’s a lot of truth to the comparison.


But revolutions and coup plots do not happen overnight. They take months and even years of planning, with most of the heavy lifting of infiltrating and taking over the institutions performed while the masses are sound asleep, busy making money, raising families, enjoying the good times that a free society offers them.

Then when the coup plotters have all their pieces in place, they lower the boom. And everyone is gripped by feelings of confusion, physical and emotional paralysis. But most of all, they feel shock.


We should not have been shocked.


What went down last night, on August 8, 2022, with the brazen raid on Donald Trump’s personal home in Florida, was the natural result of a coup plot that has been decades in the making.


The voices warning that this day would come have been largely ignored, or set aside in a box with the label “conspiracy theorist” on it.
