They can taste it. And they’re perfectly willing to make theirs even more ridiculous than that first way cool media construct in evil US-Amerika.
Admittedly, a hard thing to do but I wouldn’t putsch it past them. Enjoy, folks. Very entertaining. I coup watch them all day.
The bizarre far-right coup attempt in Germany, explained by an expert – Understanding the Reichsbürger, a QAnon-influenced radical movement that just tried to make a minor noble the new king of Germany.
That means nervous breakdown. Having them is a favorite German pastime. These days especially.
Germans on the verge of a nervous breakdown – It’s a sign of the nation’s fraught state of mind that many seriously believe this week’s unlikely plotters could have toppled democracy.
Early Wednesday, thousands of balaclava-clad German police officers fanned out across the country, arresting 25 people and seizing weapons to upend what authorities described as a diabolical plot to overthrow the country’s government and reinstate the monarchy.

‘We don’t have much time’ Angela Merkel’s youth wing plots to OUST her as popularity drops.
Worried that the tiny little bit that is left of the CDU could soon evaporate altogether after Chancellor Merkel’s breathtakingly poor negotiation results in forming the latest grand coalition (the CDU has, in essence, become the SPD – the tail will soon be wagging the dog), a small group of fanatical CDU youth is preparing to implement an emergency continuity of CDU government operations plan as soon as they can figure out a way to bump off the old bag.
