Historian Beschloss Hysterically Warns: 'If Republicans Win, Our Children Will Be Arrested and Conceivably Killed'

Can someone please explain to me what’s going on on the left? While liberals continue to throw apoplectic fits with the midterm elections now just four days away and the Democrat Party more likely than not to suffer a historical beatdown, this craziness differs from “normal” Democrat hyperbole, hypocrisy, and lies.


Quintessential case in point:

Presidential historian and MSNBC commentator Michael Beschloss suffered an apparent meltdown on Thursday, including an angry wild look in his eyes, during a hysterical diatribe about how children will be “arrested and conceivably killed” if Republicans win control of the House and possibly the Senate.

Think about that. To say Bechloss’s delusional rant was bizarre would be an understatement:

A historian 50 years from now, if historians are allowed to write in this country, and if there 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 that whether we will be a democracy in the future, whether our children will be arrested and conceivably killed. We’re on the edge of a brutal authoritarian system, and it could be a week away.

“The fact”? Based on what facts? Name just one, Mr. Beschloss.

This is delusional hate speech, my Democrat friends, from an “acclaimed” historian, no less.

Where do we start? Bechloss’s insane predictions are completely devoid of facts, yet the best-selling author called his silly rant fact-based. Um, I have a couple of rhetorical questions for Mr. Beschloss:


Under which party did a whistleblower admit that FBI agents were instructed not to investigate the Hunter Biden laptop scandal by top FBI officials so it wouldn’t affect the 2020 presidential election, while Mark Zuckerburg also admitted the FBI warned Facebook to stay off the laptop story?

As I wrote in early September, while Joe Biden rails against Donald Trump and “MAGA Republicans” as “semi-fascists” who are a “direct threat to democracy” in  America, it’s Biden himself who covets authoritarian rule. From my article:

The left and its liberal media sock puppets have told us ad nauseam for six years or more that Donald Trump and his loyalists are a “threat to democracy.” And by “democracy,” Democrats mean Democrat rule with zero interference from those with whom they disagree. J

Just one problem. The Constitution of the United States intentially established a constitutional republic — not a democracy — with specific safeguards included.

As I also wrote in early September in an op-ed titled Thank God the U.S. Is Not a Democracy: 

When Democrats talk about “democracy,” they mean Democrat rule. They mean Americans should think what they’re told to think, believe what they’re told to believe, and do what they’re told to do by so-called “progressive” Democrats. Moreover, the Democrat Party is the most hypocritical group of people on the planet; their hypocrisy knows no bounds.


Michael Beschloss is a smart guy; he had to know he was lying, strictly as a politically expedient scare tactic. After all, historians, particularly renowned historians, have been held, including by themselves, to meticulous standards, beginning with facts and objectivity.

Beschloss’s delusional rant was nothing of the kind, further diminishing him as a mere political hack.

The Bottom Line

The Democrat Party and its useful idiots peddle lies. If Democrats told the truth, they’d never win a presidential election again — which is exactly why they want to eliminate the Electoral College, which would spit out future presidents based largely on the combined votes of New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, and Philadelphia.

While Michael Beschloss is far from an idiot, his willful use by the Democrat Party makes him even worse.
