I am thinking about this now as I listen to the soundtrack from the German TV series “Babylon Berlin.”
In the story there is an attempted coup in 1929 by disaffected German militarists to overthrow the Weimar government. It fails.
If Matt Gonzalez, pictured below, is not appointed San Francisco’s Public Defender by Mayor London Breed the result will be a quiet coup d’état by law enforcement and those opposed to Jeff Adachi’s aggressive progressive agenda.
Jeff Adachi just started a four year term. Jeff and Matt Gonzalez were so closely knit philosophically that if anyone but Matt is selected it will be an open repudiation of the will of the People.
Translation. An executive Coup d’état.
