Sometimes people should keep their thoughts to themselves and this is one of those times — though an online outburst by a top California Democrat is indeed revealing in a “good to know” kind of way for conservatives.
On Wednesday, Democratic California Regional Director and Democratic National Convention member David Atkins made it clear President Trump’s tens of millions of supporters should have to undergo World War II-style Nazi Germany ‘deprogramming.’
‘No seriously…how *do* you deprogram 75 million people,’ Atkins said in a tweet. ‘Where do you start? Fox? Facebook? We have to start thinking in terms of post-WWII Germany or Japan. Or the failures of Reconstruction in the South.’
This is not your standard partisan policy disagreement,’ he continued. ‘This is a conspiracy theory fueled belligerent death cult against reality & basic decency. The only actual policy debates of note are happening within the dem coalition between left and center left.’
‘And yeah, many are out of line,’ Atkins tweeted. ‘But what do you expect people to do in self-preservation? The Right has been running 4 years on ‘f**k your feelings, my conspiracy theories are valid opinions, and we have more guns.’’
Atkins went on to claim, nonsensically, that conservatives are giving themselves COVID ‘just to own the libs’ and ‘dying in COVID wards insisting they don’t have COVID because it must be a liberal plot.’
‘You can’t run on a civil war footing hopped up on conspiracy theories hating everyone who lives in cities, mainlining Fox/Breitbart/QAnon, threatening to kidnap governors and shoot protesters, without people trying to figure out how to reverse the brainwashing,’ he added.
This clown is definitely living in an alternate reality, but then, everyone on his side of the political aisle does. Very few on the right have ever said, seriously, that COVID isn’t real. Of course, it is. What’s been unreal is the way his party has politicized it to satisfy their base tyrannical instincts.
They are the ones who never accepted Trump’s presidency; who believed in the Russian collusion hoax; who have repeatedly and falsely claimed our president is a Nazi bigot and racist while denying the man the very demonstrable and racist history of the guy they just nominated and voted for president; and so on.
The things they have called Trump and his supporters for more than four years is the stuff lacking in “basic decency.” The very fact that this loser is calling for ‘deprogramming’ one-third of the country because he disagrees with our political philosophy and ideals — while calling Trump a tyrant — is the epitome of hubris and hypocrisy.
The Daily Caller has more:
His comments come as media figures and Democrats call for lists to be made of Trump’s supporters, suggesting that these lists will be used in the future to hold the president’s supporters accountable. Liberal media figures are also pushing President-elect Biden to take aggressive approaches to censoring conservative media, particularly Fox News.
‘There is no question that Democrats are gearing up to use their new power to apply far more pressure than ever on Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc. to censor any views they deem ‘threatening,” journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted Monday, referencing comments made by former President Barack Obama about controlling the internet with ‘a combination of government regulations and corporate practices.’

‘Please look at what is going here,’ Greenwald continued. ‘Democrats are defining whoever opposes them not as adversaries but as national security threats, fascist terrorists, etc. — all to justify blocking them from the internet using their influence with Silicon Valley.’
These lunatic leftists are attempting to convince enough of their allies that we Trump supporters are less than human and therefore whatever violence is visited upon us will be justified.
They’re going to be in for a very rude awakening if they act on their lunacy.
