NATIONALLY SOCIALIST TELEVISION NETWORK PBS HYPES SMEAR ON ‘POPULAR AUTHORITARIAN MOVEMENT WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY:’
[PBS host Laura Barron-Lopez]: ….Their new book, Tyranny of the Minority, concludes that part of the problem lies in the Constitution.

Ziblatt: ….What’s so striking, though, because we have a federal system, that there are states in the United States where there are assaults on voting rights taking place, where there’s extreme levels of gerrymandering, so that it makes it possible for a party that doesn’t win the most votes to actually win control of state legislatures, where courts are then packed at the local — at the state level as well. So what we see across the United States is increasingly a divide between states where you continue to have voting rights and democracy and states where democracy is really under assault.
Yet after all the guff about the Republican threat to traditional governance, Barron-Lopez lets the authors explain why, in her words, the U.S. Constitution “is part of the problem, is part of what’s imperiling democracy.” So chuck the Constitution in the name of protecting Democracy? Harvard hates the Constitution, too.
CNN, interviewing the same authors, agrees that pesky Constitution must go as well: CNN Gets Roasted for Absurd Chyron Warning Constitution is ‘Outdated, Puts Democracy at Risk.
A Fox producer was fired over putting “wannabe dictator” on a screen graphic. But this at CNN is standard programming. https://t.co/AQkAlymVrJ
