Hillary Clinton Wants Reeducation Camps for Trump Voters: "Formal Deprogramming of the Cult Members"

In claiming last week that Republicans must be “formally deprogrammed,” failed presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was at least honest.

Of course, she proved the old adage that the heart of a communist beats inside the chest of every liberal. Yet she also revealed what she and her ilk think about the 74.2 million fellow Americans who voted for President Donald Trump in 2020.

In other words, for all the codswallop she disgorges about Trump and his supporters threatening “our democracy,” the real peril is Clinton herself — and the Democrats who support her.

They want their political opponents jailed and brainwashed.

The Interview

As a practical matter, she prescribed reeducation camps for those who don’t vote the way she wants. Libertarians who vote for Vermin Supreme are probably safe, but not anyone who seriously threatens the hate-Trump Deep State and its uniparty auxiliary.

Clinton offered her frightening vision of the future for MAGA dissidents to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, a hate-Trump leftist, on October 5.

Clinton demanded that Republicans in general and Trump voters in particular be sent to reeducation camps — such as those in Communist China and Vietnam — the only way such enemies of the Deep State could be “formally” deprogrammed.

Clinton contrasted “sane” Republicans — who do what the Democrats want — with those who are part of a “cult.” They don’t do what the Democrats want.

“We had very strong partisans in both parties in the past. And we had very bitter battles over all kinds of things,” Clinton said. “But there wasn’t this little tail of extremism, waving, you know, wagging the dog of the Republican Party as it is today.”

She continued:

And, sadly, so many of those extremists, those MAGA extremists take their marching orders from Donald Trump, who has no credibility left by any measure. He’s only in it for himself. He’s now defending himself in civil actions and criminal actions. And when do they break with him? Because at some point, you know, maybe there needs to be a formal deprogramming of the cult members. But something needs to happen.

Amusingly, having just claimed that Trump supporters will be “formally deprogrammed,” which would really mean forcefully, she claimed that Trump’s support is the “classic tale of an authoritarian populist who really has a grip on the emotional, psychological needs and desires of a portion of the population”:

And the base of the Republican Party, for whatever combination of reasons — and it is emotional and psychological — sees in him someone who speaks for them. And they are determined that they will continue to vote for him, attend his rallies, wear his merchandise because, for whatever reason, he and his very negative, nasty form of politics resonates with them. Maybe they don’t like migrants. Maybe they don’t like gay people or Black people or the woman who got the promotion at work they didn’t get, whatever the reason.

Or maybe they don’t like something else: the “tail of extremism” that’s “wagging the dog” of the Democratic Party. Maybe they don’t like a mentally ill man who wears a dress being the No. 2 federal health official, or a bald, cross-dressing sadist and luggage thief helping run the nation’s nuclear waste program. Maybe they don’t like trannies in the foxhole, or drag queen shows at Air Force bases.

Anyway, Trump’s backers are a “cult,” and so Joe Biden will defeat him in 2024.


Clinton’s candid remarks invited the reaction she surely had to have anticipated.

“Her open call for tyranny coincides with the FBI’s open admission that it’s targeting Trump supporters,” Monica Crowley X posted. “None of this is a coincidence. Get it yet?”

GOP Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee concluded the obvious: “Does she know that this is America and not a Communist regime?”

Yes, she does. And it’s a safe bet that Clinton would do to MAGA Americans what Vietnam’s communist authorities did to anti-communist South Vietnamese soldiers, authorities, and even civilians after the war ended in 1975.

Some 500,000 to 1 million prisoners were reeducated, the Vietnamese Heritage Museum explains, in a network of camps modeled on the Soviet gulag and Chinese labor camps:

With sophisticated and inhumane methods of detention and repression techniques, this system of prison camps, organized as “forced re-education” has been spread across from the South to the North of Vietnam. This is both a means of revenge and a means of dissolving any resistance if any in the society that they have just absorbed: Prisoners are often hungry, their daily activities lack all the minimum sanitary conditions and they suffer long-term psychological-mental terror, year after year.

The Chinese Reds also operate reeducation camps and “reform through labor” camps. Another possibility: Clintonian struggle sessions modeled on those in Mao’s China, complete with dunce caps.

Florida Republican Congressman Byron Donalds observed that Clinton’s call for “reeducation” riffs off what she called Trump voters when she was running for president. They are, she said, “deplorable” and “irredeemable.”

“President Trump has said countless times that they are only coming after him, because he stands in their way from coming after you — and Hillary Clinton just confirmed that to be true,” former Trump White House spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt explained.

What Amanpour didn’t ask: What will happen to Americans who refuse to be reeducated?

One needn’t wonder what Clinton has in mind.

Leftists and Democrats have brazenly expressed it since 2020. Staffers for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ campaign openly called for gulags and the guillotine for the rich and Republicans. Even moderate Democrats wouldn’t be safe.

A leftist called Nils Gilman called for the execution of Michael Anton, who wrote “The Flight 93 Election” for the Claremont Review of Books under the nom de plume Publius Decius Mus.

“Michael Anton is the Robert Brasillach of our times and deserves the same fate,” totalitarian crackpot Gilman tweeted.

Brasillach was a French fascist journalist executed in 1945.
