WASHINGTON–as the incoming administration struggles to fill senior political appointments, some experts have expressed concern as to whether the country will be able to start the Purge on time.
“It is not as easy as it looks to organize 24 hours of anarchy and violence,” said former director of the OMB Stuart Raysan. “You need to have a communications plan, you need to get the police and military off the streets, you need to make weaponry easily available. If you don’t have all the pieces in place, you can end up in a pickle.”
Transition spokesman Sean Spicer attempted to reassure a press conference that planning was on track. “At the end of the day, we’ll have the people in place to ensure that our cities burn while law-abiding citizens cower in fear,” said Spicer. “Every administration has some teething problems, but ours won’t prevent launching the Purge on schedule.”
Also considered at risk are the administration’s plans for Thunderdome. “In Thunderdome, there are no rules,” said Raysan. “That means you have to revoke a whole lot of rules. There’s a lot of paperwork involved.”
