Remember all those guns people want to ban?
Burning everything down in modern times is mobs with ARs and IEDs. People rigging up LMGs.
Of course most of the people with the tooling and weapons and ammo to concievably pull off such a coup are… Well the side that is OK with Trump if not fully supporting him. They are also dead convinced that Trumps era is liberty and freedom and progress, away from the degeneracy of the “Dems”
In any case they are highly unlikely to get involved if a bunch of liberals actively initiated an armed resistance. There might be some moderates who are also gun owners who could be swayed to join the movement.
But unless these people are ready to go and train and practice and arm up and form an effective underground, in some cases posing as so-called patriots and mingling with the rest at the training classes, then this avenue of action is just going to remain closed.
An untrained mob will get wiped out and the remains will be a sad state.
I’m in no way a strategist for this stuff so I have no idea how a hot resistance would go. But if you wanna picture of burning it down… That’s one view.
Now another view would be hackers and maybe physical saboteurs totally wreaking havok on the grid and logistics. Shutting down vital systems, disabling power, rendering bridges unpassable. Causing traffic delays to keep the Senate locked up. Compromising politicians and agents’ privacy or doing other nasty stuff. This would be best done by a group within existing intelligence going rogue. But a quiet cloak and dagger form of resistance might be more effective and provide less backlash.
As much as there is vengeful fury in storming the palaces with guns and starting fires and trapping the royals like in the revolutions of old… There’s something else satisfying to intelligently poking and poking the corrupt bag of gas with needles, until it deflates or explodes.
Maybe I’m way wrong, but that’s my current impression.
