In a glimmer of light amid the falling night of leftist control of the United States, government-subsidized broadcaster PBS has fired an attorney who proposed putting the children of conservatives into “re-education camps.”

The government broadcaster announced the move on Jan. 13 in reaction to a video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. The video clearly shows PBS principal counsel Michael Beller saying Trump supporters’ children should be kidnapped and sent to “re-education camps.”

“This employee no longer works for PBS,” the statement announced mildly. “As a mid-level staff attorney, he did not speak on behalf of our organization, nor did he make any editorial decisions.”

“There is no place for hateful rhetoric at PBS, and this individual’s views in no way reflect our values or opinions,” the stridently anti-Trump network continued. “We strongly condemn violence and will continue to do what we have done for 50 years – use our national platform and local presence to strengthen communities and bring people together.”

The supposedly fired employee called Americans “dumb” and floated “re-education camps” with PBS available for Trump supporters’ children while unknowingly being recorded by a Project Veritas journalist before the 2020 presidential election, according to a story on the Daily Wire.

“Kids who are growing up know nothing but Trump, for four years. You’ve got to wonder what they’re going to be like,” said Beller. “They’ll be raising a generation of intolerant, horrible people – horrible kids.”

Later in the video, he noted, “The re-education camps — they’re nice, they have Sesame Street in the classrooms, and they watch PBS all day,” and he went on to say that we live in “unique” times. “I mean, Trump is close to Hitler,” he said.

Asked what Democrats should do if Trump were to win the presidential election, Beller responded, “Go to the White House and throw Molotov cocktails …”
