Brad Thor Warns America About Potential Trump Tyrannical Dictatorship

“With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as president?”

Best-selling author Brad Thor, an outspoken best-selling author and constitutional conservative, issued a dire warning for conservatives and Republicans who are jumping aboard the Trump Train just because he has an “R” next to his name.

Appearing on The Glenn Beck Program on Wednesday, Thor, whose new book Foreign Agent , a political thriller, can now be pre-ordered, opened up with both barrels, even shocking Beck and his co-hosts with the severity and intensity of his warning.

Thor contended that Trump has authoritarian and dictatorial tendencies that could literally be the end of the Republic.

“I think Trump is an extinction-level event potentially for our republic, for democracy. This is one of the greatest crises our nation has seen since the Great Depression, since World War II — is a potential Donald Trump presidency. It is a disaster for liberty,” Thor said.

Beck was taken aback by a fired-up Thor’s use of the term “extinction-level event, to which Thor answered, that conservative and Republicans should be damned for supporting Trump and that they are “gambling America’s freedom away.”

“Listen, I believe it was somebody at National Review that used that exact term, and it resonated with me. …Trump is a boorish orange raccoon. He is an absolute jackass. He is. I’ve said that on your show before. I despise Trump just because he’s such a boorish jackass. But the problem is, is that — damn it, damn it fellow Republicans — damn you, fellow conservatives, who cannot see the potential for tyranny in this man. Shame on you, shame on you all. And damn you all to hell who refuse to acknowledge the potential for tyranny.

I don’t care that things might be good under Trump. That’s not good enough to gamble America’s freedom away on. It is there for everyone with eyes to see, that this man is a potential tyrant. He is a caudillo; he is a South American strongman waiting to come into power here in the United States. He will demonize anybody that stands in his way. Congress will not stop this man. We had some of our best and brightest in my lifetime on the GOP side, lined up in this primary, and he steamrolled all of them. And he didn’t do it with great ideas. He did it by being an ass, by insulting them, by making things up.”

Thor went on to ask just who would stand up to a Trump, should he get elected, opining that he would “steamroll” Congress and judges into submission using the same slanderous tactics he used during the presidential campaign thus far. Thor urged conservatives to not cave to Trump but to keep fighting on principle.

“How the hell do you debate with somebody who pulls facts out of his butt? This guy talked about stuff that wasn’t even true. These poor Republicans brought knives to a tactical nuke fight. They couldn’t win against him. And you’re telling me Congress will stand up to tyranny from Donald Trump? It will never happen. He will demagogue members of the press, members of Congress, judges. He will steamroll them, the same way dictators in South America do. It’s going to happen here. We cannot cede the battlefield to this man. There is still a fight to be had and still a fight to be won. Let’s get back in this fight.”

Thor also explained to Glenn Beck and his co-hosts that he was also ready to leave the GOP if they nominated another establishment RINO like Jeb Bush, but that his opposition to Bush was that it was going to be more “elitist status quo in D.C., and that we don’t do political dynasties in this country.”

“I was not worried about Jeb Bush getting into office and then saying, ‘You know what? I can’t help America win with the restraints placed upon me by Congress and the Constitution.’ I wasn’t worried about an authoritarian in Jeb Bush,” Thor explained, stating that he went on record as opposing Bush over a year ago.

Thor explained that he has been inaccurately comparing Trump to former Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, but argued that in reality, he’s more like a South American strongman in the mold of Hugo Chavez, predicting that Trump as president would suspend the Constitution to “help America get back on its feet again.”

“He is a danger to America,” Thor declared, while asking a powerful question.

“With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as president?”

It’s worth listening to the entire interview, as the audio captures the passion of Brad Thor’s warning much better than the written word.
