DNC Member Suggests ‘Deprogramming’ 75 million Trump Supporters
Every camera phone these days has a feature that can flip the focus from “selfie” to the outside world for a more conventional shot. All of it done with a quick touch to our screen.
That’s as good a high tech explanation as any, of projection in the psychological sense.
Apart from deliberate projection, which is regularly used as a political tactic as per Saul Alinsky, there is the more classic and unconscious projection that happens among true believers of the same ilk.
Take a look at what happens when one of those believers is caught telling the truth about what he’d like to do to Trump voters:
While David Atkins wonders how anyone could be a Trump supporter, many of us wonder how a Leftist who may have been initially attracted to feel good ideas like “tolerance” and “diversity”, could publicly advocate forceful “deprogramming” of 75 million of his fellow citizens (in refugee camps? concentration camps?) for the sin of disagreeing with him about a political candidate. How does that happen?
Among the variety of responses possible when emotions become too intense or painful for a person to tolerate, is a kind of flip of focus just like that camera. The subject disowns his uncomfortable or embarrassing feelings and quite unconsciously attributes them to others–often to the person or group on which he has already been so intensely focused.
It’s much easier to feel justified in advocating full-blown persecution of those he hates if he can view himself as a victim. To add insult to injury, this is all in the name of “tolerance.”
The inability to distinguish or accept the origins of one’s rage are the building blocks of paranoia and persecution complexes.
A culture that positively values personal responsibility rather than collective guilt is infinitely healthier not just politically but psychologically.
Atkins goes on to project another charge against Trump supporters claiming they are in a “death cult against reality & basic decency.”
If ever there were an ideology that resembles a classic cult it is the Leftism, Socialism, and Communism of today which now controls what used to be the Democrat Party.

Cults feed and grow off collectivism and group-think. That is why they must always demonize dissent, individuality and personal responsibility.
Remember when the Left lectured us (when do they not?) about “Hate!, Hate!, We have to root out hate!” That should have been our first clue that they were getting ready to unleash an avalanche of hate upon us, and they did. The pattern is so often repeated that we can just about predict what they’ll do by watching what they accuse everyone else of next.
