Trump is not qualified to be Commander In Chief; the Pentagon may feel the need to act
With the Dallas shootings, 31 law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty so far this year, compared with 18 officers who had died at this point in 2015, according the statistics from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

Wow some here forget they are always bleating for a revolution on ATS.
I thought you would be lauding this guy...
Didn't you know - it's perfectly fine to want a revolution when it comes to gun rights, but not when it comes to equality rights...
that Black Americans are intrinsically more violent
Meanwhile, earlier this year on June 17, Dylann Roof murdered nine people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C. During the attack, Roof told the parishioners he had targeted them because they were Black, saying, “You rape our women, and you’re taking over our country.”
Authorities apprehended Roof the following day in an uneventful arrest. Officers described the killer as “polite” and “quiet,” and pictures show what appeared to be a calm situation.
A controversial aspect of Roof’s arrest, though, was the fact that an officer purchased Burger King for Roof to eat. But according to FindLaw, to not give Roof, who had not eaten in a couple of days, something to eat would have violated his basic civil rights: “A criminal suspect is entitled to humane treatment, no matter how heinous the alleged crime. If you were not treated humanely, for instance, if you were deprived of food and water or if you were beaten either during police questioning or while in a holding cell, your rights may have been violated.”
In Baltimore this past April, Freddie Gray was denied the civil rights that officers were sure to award Roof. Gray was arrested and placed, without a seatbelt, in the back of a police van. Gray asked for medical assistance but was not given any. Gray was thrown around in the back of the van and ultimately suffered a fatal spinal cord injury. While officers were sure to get Roof food and drink during his arrest, Gray was refused necessary medical attention, which ultimately cost him his life.
In all four kinds of searches analyzed in this report, black and Hispanic motorists were significantly more likely to be searched, and white motorists were significantly more likely than Hispanic motorists to be caught with contraband. In three of four kinds of searches, white motorists were significantly more likely than black motorists to be caught with contraband. In the one exception to this pattern (consent searches of drivers), black motorists were only 6% more likely than white motorists to be caught with contraband. This hit-rate pattern generally holds when the different types and amounts of contraband are disaggregated.

He isn't calling for it. He's saying he sees it as a potential event if Donald Trump is elected.
There is NO language in that quote "calling" for a coup.
It's a conditional veiled threat. It's conditional on Trump becoming president. The threat is indirect by trying to insinuate third parties potential activities when in fact, it would be thus clown trying to organize the coup.

REPOST July 8th: Bombshell Proof Emerges Black Lives Matter Pushing For Martial Law And No Elections After Hacked Twitter DM's Find BLM Leaders Scheming With Obama Administration
Only days ago, the Twitter account of one of the leaders of Black Lives Matter, Deray McKesson, was hacked according to this story from the Baltimore Sun. The account was then used by the hacker(s) to send out pro-Donald Trump tweets while belittling 'Black Lives Matter'. Interestingly enough, a series of direct message conversations between McKesson and another leader of Black Lives Matter, Johnetta Elzie, has just been made public and the conversation that took place between McKesson and Elzie as seen in the screenshots below should be sending up another huge red flag to America:

The usual pattern of quoting some random statistic (usually out of any significant context)
that seems to favor the (racist) argument that Black Americans are intrinsically more violent, less responsible
Statistics only mean something when normalized for population differences, and further, the additional demography that is almost NEVER mentioned here is economic status.
