The Huffington Post reports:
Avowed QAnon disciple and confessed felon retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn has called for a Myanmar-like military coup in America. “It should happen,” Donald Trump’s former national security adviser said in an astonishing declaration at a QAnon conference Sunday.
″I wanna know why what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here?” an unidentified member of the audience asked Flynn, though he pronounced the nation as “Minnimar.” “No reason,” Flynn responded to wild screams of approval. “It should happen.”
The Insider reports:
On February 1, Myanmar’s military overthrew its democratically elected government and arrested its leaders. The coup immediately sparked protests across the country, prompting the junta to launch a campaign against its own citizens.
Upwards of 800 Burmese people, including at least 40 children, have been killed, according to Myanmar’s Assistance Association for Political Prisoners.
More than 4,000 people have been arrested. Flynn, who has become a prominent figure in the QAnon conspiracy theory, was a main attraction at the event, held at the Omni Hotel in Dallas.

Michael Flynn is advocating for a violent coup to overthrow the American government. This is the guy who Donald Trump pardoned for his crimes.

Nothing to see here. Just the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (2012-14) and Trump’s first National Security Advisor (for 23 days) General Michael Flynn casually endorsing the military overthrow of the United States government. On Memorial Day weekend. https://t.co/nVJnoonJT5
