It doesn’t feel like the Summer of love does it? I don’t see Twitter banning these tweets and those who indicate that rounding us up for re-education camps and calling us a cult is not hate speech.
California Democrat David Atkins this week called for Trump supporters to be “deprogrammed” in “post WWII” type reeducation camps.
I copied a few of the tweets in the thread. Here is his idea as to what to do with us.
“No seriously…how *do* you deprogram 75 million people? Where do you start? Fox? Facebook?” Atkins said.
“We have to start thinking in terms of post-WWII Germany or Japan. Or the failures of Reconstruction in the South.” he added.

This is not your standard partisan policy disagreement. 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.
I know conservatives are upset by some of the responses here. And yeah, many are out of line. But what do you expect people to do in self-preservation? The Right has been running 4 years on “f*** your feelings, my conspiracy theories are valid opinions, and we have more guns.”
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.
i mean, for chrissakes, conservatives are literally giving themselves COVID just to own the libs. They’re dying in COVID wards insisting they don’t have COVID because it must be a liberal plot. People are gonna try to figure out how to defend themselves.
There was a lot of pile own:
After more ringing in with what to do with the “cult” – the cult members tried to step in and respond and the thread took a turn to the need start the thread elsewhere.
The swamp takes an ominous turn.
