While there are no guarantees these days when it comes to U.S. elections, thanks to Democrats literally stealing the 2020 presidential race from President Donald Trump, local races are much more easily policed, so the GOP should do much better, polls suggest. And that has the lunatics at MSNBC going crazy.
After Joe Biden once again claimed that the country as we know it will collapse if Republicans win, 'presidential historian' Michael Beschloss, a regular on the network, hysterically claimed that America will lapse into an authoritarian hellscape under GOP congressional leadership (never mind that Biden will still be president).
He proclaimed during an appearance on "All In With Chris Hayes":
[S]ix nights from now, we could all be discussing violence all over this country. There’s signs that may happen, may God forbid, that losers will be declared winners by fraudulent election officers, or secretary of state candidates, or governors, or state legislatures…
We could be six days away from losing our rule of law, and losing a situation where we have elections that we all can rely on. You know, those are the foundation stones of a democracy…
Joe Biden is saying the same thing tonight, and a historian 50 years from now – if historians are allowed to write in this country and if they are still free publishing houses and a free press – which I’m not certain of – but if that is true, a historian will say what was at stake tonight and this week was the fact whether we will be a democracy in the future, whether our children will be arrested and conceivably killed.
And of course, this unhinged rant went unchecked by the host, who himself often engages in similar unhinged rants that have no basis in reality or fact.
If anything, conservatives are being silenced by big tech, the 'mainstream media,' and academia. Biden's Justice Department is targeting parents who show up at school board meetings to express their disgust and opposition to transgender and other materials sexualizing children. It is the left that shouts down and cancels conservatives on a daily basis, not the right. And again, while Congress may be controlled by Republicans in a few weeks, the presidency was stolen for Biden, meaning Democrats still hold the highest elected office in the land.
So, these kinds of rants are not only unhinged, but they are completely whacko, given they were made by someone claiming to be a historical 'expert' on the presidency. If anyone has the ability to go full authoritarian, it would be Biden; he controls the military.
What's also notable is that the far left media mouthpieces, by focusing on Republican 'authoritarianism,' are taking the focus off Biden's and Democrats' disastrous record on inflation, the southwest border, and the cultural issues that are dividing our country.
"So much for gas prices. The choice is now voting Democratic or lining up your children in front of a firing squad. (Strangely, it will only be our children and not adults targeted by the roaming GOP goon squads). However, it will all be 'off-the-books,'" constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley noted in his blog. "After all, Beschloss warned Hayes, 'we both write history, you and I' and he is not certain that 'historians [will be] allowed to write in this country' if Republicans gain a majority in Congress.
"In other words, there may be no history books, no living children, and no democracy, but feel free to vote your pocketbook, America," he added.
