Tyranny Expert Sounds The Alarm On 2024 Election: It’s Happening
Yale history professor Timothy Snyder, an expert on how fascism and authoritarianism works, hit one of the loudest alarms yet in the 2024 election on Friday.
Speaking to MSNBC's Ari Melber, Snyder noted that former President Donald Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 result were based on "personal charisma and signals to his followers and a few people in the Justice Department and hope."
But if Trump decides to officially compete in the 2024 race, this time around Snyder warned that he will also have "a slew of institutional machines," with the installation of partisan election officials backing his 2020 lies, which for them legitimizes the vote , "plus plenty of time to plan."
"What we know historically is that a failed coup is a test run for a successful coup," said Snyder. "Usually something happens to you when you fail in a coup - and Mr. Trump, nothing happened to him."
Melber asked Snyder if he feared a coordinated effort that might influence the election. "We should think about what is happening and then ask what we can do to prevent it," he replied.
