The Danger of Surrendering to Populism
Over Memorial Day weekend, Michael Flynn, who briefly served as Donald Trump’s first national security adviser, appeared at a QAnon-affiliated conference in Dallas. During a Q&A session, an audience member asked, “I want to know why what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here.”
What happened in Myanmar was an old-fashioned military coup.
Flynn replied, “No reason. I mean, it should happen here.”
The crowd cheered both the question and the answer.
