It didn’t matter that most Republicans and conservatives decried the horrible January 6 Capitol Hill riots. Liberal journalists nevertheless exploited the event to target them as “cultists” who needed to be “deprogrammed.”
This past month saw the likes of the Washington Post Associate Editor Eugene Robinson and former CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric calling for Donald Trump supporters to be “deprogrammed.” ABC News political director Rick Klein tweeted about “cleansing the movement.”
CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy demanded a deplatforming of conservatives from social media sites and cable TV, as he advocated for an“informational environment” clean-up.
This was all in addition to the hype journalists gave the incoming Biden administration that can be found here.
The following are some of the worst (non-Inauguration) outbursts from liberal journos (and celebrities) over the last month.
“The Klan was lower income, the white Citizens’ Councils were the Josh Hawleys and Ted Cruzes of their day. Here’s the situation, though….There are millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans who somehow need to be deprogrammed….It’s as if they are members of a cult, the Trumpist cult and they have to be deprogrammed. Do you have any idea how we start that process? Much less complete it?”
— Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, January 12.
“How are we going to really, almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump?”
— Former NBC’s Today show co-host and CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, January 15.
“Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else.”
— January 7 tweet by ABC News political director Rick Klein. The tweet was later deleted.
If You Voted For Trump, You Are On The Same Side as the Klan
“If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported. You voted for the person who Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right supports. That’s the crowd that you are in.”
