I don't believe enough of the tank-and-file military are behind him for that. Remember the sailors' reaction to Captain Crozier's being relieved of command?I am very worried that we might not make it to November before we are simply a military dictatorship.
Yes, hacker is a general term. It actually started before computers but once computers existed it was basically a specific subspecies of geek. By the 90s it was being taken over by nefarious types. Now it is used by white hats and black hats.
This, too:This is...100% on the nose.

Looked at this way, Mr. Trump’s war on the platforms is a familiar refrain. A power user with a passionate following is lashing out against the moderators of his favorite internet services. He likes the way these services were run in the past, when he could stir up trouble and speak his mind without consequences.
Now, the mods are putting in new guardrails, and he’s upset. He wants what internet trolls and rebels have always wanted: to be allowed to post in peace, free of limits and restrictions. Most of all, he wants the mods to know who is really in charge.
The military won't touch this.I am very worried that we might not make it to November before we are simply a military dictatorship.
But by that point, their Commander-in-Chief would be foaming at the mouth, chewing the furniture level of crazy, and I wonder how many officers, junior or senior, would be willing to put at risk, at the very least, their careers by accepting orders of questionable legality from someone so clearly incapacitated as Trump will doubtless be at that point.Even if we're at 500,000 deaths and the White House declares Martial Law to "save America"?
