(American Thinker) – There is little to gain from reading The New York Times and The Washington Post or watching MSNBC and CNN. The word “biased” is insufficient to describe these outfits; instead, they must be regarded as a propaganda wing of the Democrat party.
Their content reveals the mindset of the Democrats. They are so self-righteous that they unabashedly divulge what occupies their grey cells. This is why these outfits occasionally merit our attention.
Recently, there were two occurrences on MSNBC that reveal the Democrat mindset ahead of the US midterms.
During an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, historian Michael Beschloss invoked the Civil War and World War II to laud Biden’s speech attacking Trump and his supporters.
Beschloss said the following:
We are in a situation where, you know, we are talking about historical parallels… I’m not suggesting that this year is the equivalent, except for in one respect. That is if, you know, a historian from 50 years from now were to go back and visit America in 2022, the overwhelming question is, are we going to have a democracy in a year or two?
Are we going to have free and fair elections with all those state officials and state legislatures threatening to say, ‘We’re going to just name the winner whoever we feel like.’ Are we going to have rule of law?
Last month, Beschloss implied that Trump deserves to be executed following rumors that the Mar-a-Lago raid was conducted because Trump was in possession of nuclear secrets.

Former CNN contributor Roland Martin said the following about Trump and his supporters on MSNBC’s Cross Connection:
We are at war with these people. These folks are evil. They have allowed evil into their house with Donald Trump. He has now dominated the party. This evil is spreading. And when you are in a war footing, you have to respond accordingly. It is about time Joe Biden got tough.
Stop being weak, stop being impotent, quit not fighting back. What these people want to do to this country is destroy democracy. They want to rig elections and so it requires you to stand strong. You don’t walk the comments back, you don’t wilt under the pressure.

These remarks echo the recent speeches of Joe Biden, where he claimed that MAGA philosophy is like “semi-fascism” and that Trump and his supporters are a “threat to democracy.”
But we know that in recent times, the Democrats have shown themselves to be evil and a threat to democracy. They concocted the Russian collusion hoax to delegitimize the 2016 presidential elections. They imposed lockdowns that prevented freedom of movement and the right to earn a living. They imposed vaccine mandates rendering people either unemployed or unwell.
They rigged the 2020 election by using the media and Big Tech to suppress the Hunter Biden scandal. The sacrosanct electoral infrastructure of the 2020 elections was infiltrated by Democrat activists. They violated electoral norms by facilitating large-scale mail-in voting with ballots cast long before Election Day in 2020.
Despite their claims that there is “growing evidence against a Republican wave” and Democrats are showing momentum coming out of special elections, they know they are likely to receive an emphatic drubbing during the midterms. Perhaps even rigging won’t work this time.
But merely knowing the fact will not help. The GOP will have to fight back.
These utterances on MSNBC and from Biden must be regarded as a preview of the future.
Let’s not forget that the Trump-Russia Collusion hoax began as a ludicrous conspiracy theory, yet it caused the appointment of a special counsel and a probe that lasted for around two years that hung like a sword over Trump’s presidency. This is true also for the insurrection hoax and the Ukraine call hoax. In all cases, loud conjecture and reckless overstatements triumphed over facts.
The purpose of these utterances from Biden and MSNBC “experts” is to demonize and dehumanize Trump and his supporters.
Once a group of people has been branded evil and a threat to democracy, it presents an excuse to stop them at any cost. The ends justify the means, and concern for the rule of law or civil liberties can be ignored.
They can justify the persecution of Trump and his supporters by government agencies.
They can also reject the outcome of the midterms should the GOP win. Perhaps it is a fascist takeover and must be rejected for the future of democracy. Perhaps they’ll even claim that Putin rigged the contest because Biden is siding with Ukraine.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has officially crossed a line by weaponizing the FBI to target America’s most influential conservative leader — former president Donald Trump, a private citizen — without due process and with obvious political bias.
SIGN this petition to FBI Director Christopher Wray - condemn this blatant political policing againt former President Trump.
This single act has sent an unmistakable signal that anyone who holds a dissenting political belief from the leftist regime can have his or her life ruined by the Deep State — forcing them to defend themselves from a faceless FBI attack-arm of the federal government.
The FBI just proved that Donald Trump was right. He’s always been right.— Benny Johnson 🍊 (@bennyjohnson) August 9, 2022
No one will ever forget this.
We cannot stand for the complete corruption and weaponization of America's law enforcement, and especially not the FBI. We must stand united, bold, and patriotic — in the name of liberty, the rule of law, and American Greatness.
SEND A BOLD MESSAGE TODAY: WE ABSOLUTELY CONDEMN THE DESPICABLE FBI RAID ON A PRIVATE AMERICAN CITIZEN — AND WE WILL NOT STOP FIGHTING FOR AMERICA FIRST!
This kind of weaponization of federal agencies against private citizens who hold a dissenting worldview is seen only in third-world countries.
This is exactly why Americans must use their voices and shout even more loudly that this country is worth saving from the ideologues on the radical left who care only about power and control.
We won’t know how fully insane the FBI raid on Trump is until we see the warrant and warrant application. But after Russiagate – years of investigation predicated largely on Clinton campaign misinformation -- if the basis for this isn’t bedrock-solid, there should be hell to pay.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) August 9, 2022
Destroying 30K classified emails with a hammer and bleach doesn’t get your home searched. Remember that.— Erielle Davidson (@politicalelle) August 9, 2022
American patriots will continue standing in the way of the left's attempt at hostile takeover, and will always defend America from her enemies — both foreign and domestic.
SIGN NOW: Our Founding Fathers added their names to the Declaration of Independence, and now more than ever is it important to add your name to the growing list of patriots who uphold our inalienable rights and the promise of self-government.
The @FBI raid on President Trump was approved by Director Wray, who also claimed that the illegal FISA warrants used to spy on Trump were constitutional.— Rand Paul (@RandPaul) August 9, 2022
Today’s raid is outrageous and unjust, but predictable.
Stand up against the targeting of private American citizens from FBI raids - we refuse to back down!
P.S. — Nobody is safe from politically motivated attacks under the current DOJ. And with 87,000 new IRS agents joining the executive branch, the unaccountable federal government is only growing. Now is the time to push back before it’s too late! SIGN NOW AND STAND STRONG TOGETHER!
After todays raid on Mar A Lago what do you think the left plans to use those 87,000 new IRS agents for?— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) August 9, 2022
The Democrats could sit in protest and block the newly elected GOP from taking office. Perhaps get their paid activists to occupy Washington indefinitely and claim that it is all in “defense of democracy.”
They could allow the GOP to be sworn in but block them from functioning because the results are “illegitimate.” They could insist that the January 6 probe continues without GOP interference. They could initiate another probe and demand that the GOP not pass any bills or hold any hearings until the 2022 election probe is complete.
How can they do it when the GOP is in control?
Back in 2017, the Republicans had majorities in both the House and the Senate, yet the GOP leadership accepted the bogus Russian interference premise and allowed the Democrats to own the narrative. The collusion probe may have cost the GOP the 2018 midterms, which caused two impeachments of Trump and stopped all progress.
Early this January, while campaigning for the Voting Rights Bill that will allow voting without any voter ID proof and allow unrestricted mail-in voting, Biden said that if the voting rights bill isn’t passed, that does “increase and the prospect of it (the results) being illegitimate.” That bill failed to pass, which Biden could cite as a reason to reject the results.
For the Democrats, elections are fair only when they win. When Republicans win, they claim that it is due to voter suppression, abuse of power, KGB interference, meddling by content farms in Macedonia, etc.
The mainstream media and compromised government agencies obediently promote whatever narrative the Democrats concoct.
The GOP must realize that merely winning votes may not be enough to win back the House and the Senate. The GOP will have to be prepared with a contingency plan if the Democrats reject the results.
It starts by being fearless and rejecting the bogus premises created by Democrats. They will also have to be impervious to media noise and threats by compromised government agencies. They will need a team of lawyers to contest any legal traps that the Democrats set. Most importantly, they will have to push their agenda while investigating Biden and the Democrats for their myriad misdeeds.
Is the GOP up to these challenges?
We shall see.
