Perhaps, but we're not seeing it just yet. What we're seeing is a frightened elite that just held the most bizarre inauguration in modern times, with Americans generally banned from the inauguration and surrounded by barricades, razor wire and 20k troops. It's straight up bizarre for a country that pretends to have a democratically elected government.

The revolutionary aspects of Trumpism are more or less: saying what you think even if it bothers others; nationalist trade policy; limits on immigration; and keeping taxes relatively low. Trump isn't any different from early 20th Century politicians at all. Today's political establishment is more or less against the American people, and that's why Biden being president is sort of otherworldly in that he has no obvious popular support at all.

They are scared, but they should be. Trump got 74M votes. The phony election is palpable. FoxNews' ratings are now lower than CNN's, because nobody trusts them. CNN is complaining because YouTubers have bigger audiences than they do. Biden took down the inauguration video on his own site, because it got ratioed and Trump's farewell address had orders of magnitude more viewers. Antifa responded to Biden by trashing a DNC headquarters in Washington and continuing with their riots. So this is all on Biden's time now. He can't even unify the political left, because they hate him too.

But this is ONLY to eliminate any threats to the mafias that they - Biden-Harris and friends - are sworn to serve.
I doubt they will be that powerful. However, I don't think they understand that they are further isolating themselves from the people they intend to govern.

Indeed. I'm surprised to find myself agreeing with you.

Biden isn't a leftist per se, but he will throw fig leafs to leftists, like more or less quashing the stated purpose for Title IX, or ensuring Canadian crude has to use railroads they own rather than pipelines while pretending it's about environmentalism.

True enough, but activist groups are all infiltrated by the deep state. So there are ties. As I said in March of last year, there was going to be violence simply out of a frustration-aggression response to lockdowns and destroying the livelihoods of a lot of people. What made the Floyd death palpable to people is that many feel like the government is kneeling on their necks too. So the deep state tried to direct all the outrage at police without addressing the fact that they have destroyed so many people's livelihoods. Now as Antifa protests Biden, however, they will start cracking down. You have to keep in mind, even the right wing nutters that wanted to kidnap the governor of Michigan had an FBI mole in their group. The deep state infiltrates them all.
What has them really scared is a general uprising, because frankly they don't have the forces to put that down or any moral authority with the population any more. Hell, even for Biden's inauguration, they wanted troops to protect them from the American people, but they were afraid of the troops too and had the FBI vet the troops that were there.
