Documentary filmmaker and historian Ken Burns says that present-day America is going through one of the worst times in its existence.
Burns made the comment while on the “SmartLess” podcast, which is hosted by Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes, comparing the current events to the Civil War, World War II, and the Great Depression.
“It is really serious. There are three great problems before this: the Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II. This is in line with those,” he said when asked about where the U.S. was headed.
“We are looking right down the muzzle of the gun,” Burns said.
Naturally, he does not remember that Biden is president, preferring instead to go after and scapegoat former President Donald Trump, a tactic taken straight from the liberal playbook.
In a Jan. 2021 piece in Politico, Burns said that America was going through its “fourth” great crisis. He swooned over Franklin Roosevelt as what a true American president should be in comparison to Trump.
He said about Roosevelt: “He came a long way — and he would go further. He would expertly deal with two of the four greatest crises in U.S. history, the Depression and WW2 (Lincoln, the president just starting to show on Mount Rushmore when FDR went to visit in 1936, had dealt with the worst, the Civil War).”
Talking with Variety in 2018, Burns was asked about making a documentary about Trump, to which he said, “I would like to figure out what it all meant, coming after Barack Obama, these big steps backwards that we have taken,” Burns said, “and attempt to know what it was happening that made us make these choices and who he was, and what motivations he had.”
He must not remember how Barack Obama polarized white people with his anti-white targeting of gun-owners and Christians and his mass immigration plans that Biden is now seeing through.
At the time, he said the U.S. was having a “great existential crisis,” a phrase overused by liberals and applied to all of their agendas, from climate change to their schizophrenia over white supremacy that it no longer has any meaning at all. But if it does, one could easily say that President Biden is this country’s top existential threat.
