Last November, Washington Monthly contributor David Atkins wondered aloud how to go about deprogramming Trump voters:
No seriously…how *do* you deprogram 75 million people? 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.

Apparently this “deprogramming” idea still has legs, because today, “Morning Joe” cohost Mika Brzezinski brought it up again:
MSNBC's Brzezinski (@morningmika) is the latest to media personality to demand Trump supporters be "deprogrammed"
"That firehose of falsehoods has been spewing propaganda & lies for well over a year, & it’s time to turn that spigot off. It’s time to deprogram the cult leaders" pic.twitter.com/eBUjbXNjWj

To be fair, Mika, the MSM’s firehose of falsehoods has been spewing propaganda & lies for a lot longer than that. Don’t sell yourselves short!
This is laughable. The media generally, and NBC in particular has been wellsprings of disinformation. The autocratic demands here are embarrassing.

And let’s not forget about Team Biden’s own role in sowing the seeds of anti-vaxx fear.
But Mika Brzezinski wants us to forget about that. She wants us to forget all about the irreparable damage the Left — including the media — caused by letting their hatred for Donald Trump trump their concern for people’s welfare.
