Democratic Party official in California: We need to ‘deprogram’ conservatives

Throughout Donald Trump’s presidency, the Left has been obsessed with comparing him to Adolf Hitler. Never mind that Democrats’ own policies, such as imposing strict controls on gun ownership among the citizenry, is a page out of Hitler’s handbook. Danielle Allen, a political theorist at Harvard University, penned a Washington Post op-ed in early 2016, warning:

“Like any number of us raised in the late 20th century, I have spent my life perplexed about exactly how Hitler could have come to power in Germany. Watching Donald Trump’s rise, I now understand. Leave aside whether a direct comparison of Trump to Hitler is accurate. That is not my point. My point rather is about how a demagogic opportunist can exploit a divided country.”

The comment seemed more directed at Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, whose far-left policy prescriptions had left the country bitterly polarized, though liberals like to forget that. They also like to overlook strides Trump made in reducing black unemployment and stimulating black business and home ownership, but that’s grist for another post.

Now that Trump appears to be on his way out, it is time for liberals to figure out what to do all the Americans who Trump mesmerized.

Actor Robert de Niro has warned Trump allies to “be afraid — be very afraid,”  though he failed to specify why or of what. Meanwhile, David Atkins, a regional director for California Democrats, is interested in more practical solutions for dealing with Trump’s acolytes.

He posted a tweet to that effect, which asks “how … you deprogram 75 million people.”

Atkins continued to amplify on his original thoughts through Thursday, adding at one point that he was not advocating “re-education camps” but rather something more akin to cult deprogramming.

Suffice it to say it’s going to be a long four years.

POLL: Fauci’s Credibility Craters

COVID-19 czar Dr. Anthony Fauci’s credibility is down to an all-time low after he raised doubts about families gathering for Christmas.

In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 54% of likely voters agreed that he has lost “all credibility.”

Just 36% disagreed when asked, “Do you agree or disagree with this statement: ‘Fauci has lost all credibility with the American people. We aren’t waiting for his permission to celebrate Christmas together.”

The poll also revealed that after 18 months in the public eye as the government’s coronavirus expert, his approval is underwater. Rasmussen found that 45% have an unfavorable view of the doctor, who heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, while 41% have a favorable view.

Interestingly, there was a close split among voters over his initial comments that it is too soon to tell if Christmas will be normal.

Some 44% agreed with Fauci’s comments while 48% disagreed. After making them, he later clarified that he didn’t mean to suggest that vaccinated people couldn’t gather for the holiday.

Fauci, one of the most sought-after TV interviews, was recently featured in a documentary and continues to be a heavy news presence.

Biden’s Approval 10 Points Lower Than Obama’s At Same Point In Presidency

President Biden’s job approval currently sits 10 points lower than that of his former boss, President Barack Obama, at the same point in his presidency in 2009.

According to approval ratings averages calculated by RealClearPolitics (RCP), Obama’s approval rating on Oct. 11 during his first year in office sat at 53 percent with a disapproval rating of 40 percent. 

During all of Obama’s eight years as president, Biden worked as his vice president. 

It has been over 12 years since the two started their time in the White House, and Biden is now sitting at an RCP average approval rating of 43 percent with a disapproval rating of 52.3 percent.

The averages calculated by RCP are pulled from a variety of polls including ones done by Fox News, Gallup, Reuters/Ipsos, Rasmussen and Monmouth.

Biden’s approval rating has been steadily dropping since he took office in January as his administration has attempted to manage a variety of blunders from the chaotic troop withdrawal from Afghanistan to the record-smashing surge of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border

Rasmussen: Growing Number of Voters Say Cheating Tainted the 2020 Election

Rasmussen: Growing Number of Voters Say Cheating Tainted the 2020 Election

A growing number of likely voters believe that cheating tainted President Joe Biden’s 2020 win over former President Donald Trump, and even more feel that a key Democratic election reform scheme will increase fraud.

In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 56% of respondents said, “It’s likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 41% who say it’s ‘very likely.’”

That is a significant increase from April, when 51% said “Biden’s election was tainted by cheating.”

The change comes as Trump has continued to raise election integrity charges and as Democrats have tried to force through liberal election reforms and shut down GOP state voting reforms.

In the new survey, voters told Rasmussen that they are not sold on efforts by Biden and congressional Democrats to expand COVID-era voting by mail, believing it will “lead to more cheating in elections.”

The results are a rejection of sorts of key features in House and Senate election reform bills supported by Biden and given to Vice President Kamala Harris to sell nationally.

By a 65%-28% margin, likely voters told the polling outfit that they believe more mail-in voting options will boost cheating. That included a majority, 51%, who said it is “very likely” cheating will expand.

The survey is the latest to suggest that partisans remain divided on the issue, though 95% agree with the vague goal of ending election cheating.
