No, the Capitol riot was not a coup

“The Capitol riot was not any sort of organised attempt to take over the federal government. That it was a coup has been argued repeatedly and hysterically by the mainstream media, which also referred to rioters in buffalo-hide headdresses as ‘insurrectionist terrorists.’ … Even if we assume, for the hell of it, that non-military, largely unarmed riots can theoretically be coups, surely Trump himself would have had to be involved in some kind of plan for the riot for it to qualify as a coup attempt on his behalf. Yet there is no evidence, of any kind, that Trump or his allies planned the attack. My source for this radical right-wing claim? The FBI.” (01/06/22)
