It‚Äôs Pearl Harbor Day and NBC News presidential historian Michael Beschloss, who‚Äôs tested positive for TDS in previous Twitchy posts, is thinking about how FDR and most Americans reacted and hoping that America would do the same in 2021. In short, he praises Roosevelt for not making America ‚Äúa militantly authoritarian country‚ÄĚ to win the war.
After Pearl Harbor, some Americans said we must become a militantly authoritarian country to win the war. FDR and most Americans instead replied: watch how strong our democracy can be in world crisis! I pray that the same would happen if there were such a predicament in 2021.
