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


By Kevin Barrett, VT 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.

  1. To me, it looks like “Those Whom We Must Not Mention” have herded The USA to where they drove Germany right before “Wheelbarrows of Marks” economy.
    I’m going to get to know my neighbors and remain handy to have around.


  2. I hear Trump has been known to find effective ghost writers. I will never know I have never been fond of his “deals”. Kevin don’t get too confident or smug. I have a feeling his followers could be convinced to double down. Paradigm shifts are not very common. And it will take a life changing perspective on their part to “see the light”

  3. “If America is going to have a Hitler, it will have to be someone with at least 50 IQ points on Donald Trump.” – KB

    So about an IQ in the range of 120 to 125?

    IQ: Below 30 – severely mentally retarded, 30-50 trainable mentally retarded, 50-70 educable mentally retarded.
