whack it and turn it then whack it again.
either it will skid off the shoes or the shoes/hardware will give

Ultimately the solution was to heat and beat the drum until the edge crumbled and then reach in with a prybar/screwdriver and break all the clips so the shoes wouldnt pressure the drum anymore.
Another thing I tried in this situation that helped a little is you can pound the wheel studs into the brake drum. Its a tight squeeze but you can get 2 of them to pop into the inner area and then use a pick tool to fish the brake parts around thru the stud holes.
