Washington Post op-ed says that the election will end in violence unless Biden wins in a landslide. A Washington Post op-ed published — it’s actually yesterday — suggested that you ought to prepare for war if the election result is anything but a landslide for Joe Biden. The op-ed was written by Rosa Brooks. She’s a law professor at Georgetown University. The title of her op-ed, “What’s the worst that could happen?”
In the op-ed, she notes that the Transition Integrity Project, something she co-founded, built a series of war games, gathered participants, and asked them to imagine what they would do in a range of election and transition scenarios. A landslide for Joe Biden resulted in a relatively orderly transfer of power. Every other scenario that she war-gamed involved street-level violence and political crisis.
