Columnist Brian Klaas wrote an op-ed on Monday expressing his pointless attempt to “deprogram” rabid Trump supporters, claiming that several have “gone far enough down the rabbit hole of conspiratorial thinking.”

The essay, entitled “‘Why is it so hard to deprogram Trumpian conspiracy theorists?” was published in the Washington Post. It depicts Trump’s million supporters allegedly devoted to “dangerous lunacy” that cannot be brought “back to reality.”

The write-up also claims that even when only hundreds marched the Capitol, millions share their views. President Trump was labeled “a conspiracy theorist in chief” who “injected the toxin of baseless conspiratorial thinking straight into America’s political bloodstream.”

Klass then asked if there’s any hope of deprogramming millions of Trump’s followers. “Don’t hold your breath,” he declares.

The essay claims that according to psychologists and political scientists, “it can be nearly impossible” to recover the people who are deeply invested in conspiratorial thinking, adding the social aspect which makes it even more difficult to “deprogram” them. 

“Modern conspiracy movements such as QAnon are thriving in church groups and yoga classes,” stated Klaas. The movements are social and thus would make the deprogramming harder. 

“Bringing the deluded people who populate Trump’s political base back to reality will be difficult,” wrote Klaas, adding that those “who have taken the poison” need be “accurately diagnosed.” As such, he said that sympathizers of the Capitol insurrectionists aren’t far off lunatics but most likely [reader’s] neighbors.



Klass appeared in an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Tuesday to argue that there should be a “coalition of reality to combat conspiracy theories.” 

The journalist lashed out at conservatives for “peddling conspiracy theories” and said they should be held accountable.

Klaas said, “Political leaders have a huge responsibility in doing this.” 

[W]e need to have a coalition of reality in our politics, and Republican leaders need to be held accountable for not inhabiting that real space that we all should live in.”

“Deprogramming” Trump supporters have been aggressively advocated by leftists following the recent presidential election and the Capitol incident in mid-January. 

As if people are merely chips and boards to be “deprogrammed,” the Dems have been promoting the notion incessantly.

On Thursday, Vanity Fair interviewed cult expert Steven Hassan on the “deprogramming” movement. Hassan argued for a “massive education” involving the schools, law enforcement, professionals, media, intelligence agencies, and politicians. 

Hassan also appeared on CNN last week, stating that all Americans need to be deprogrammed due to Trump’s negative influence. And on Monday, he published an infographic to “free your loved ones” from President Trump’s “cult.”

  1. WHO IS THIS JACK ASS OF THE ” DEPROGRAMING THE TRUMP PEOPLE! ANYBODY NEEDING A REAL HISTORY EDUCATION IS LOONIES LIKE THIS ” RABBIT HOLE ADMINISTRATOR!”

  2. First, let’s assess this moron’s definition of “conspiracy theory” as defined during the Trump presidency…
    1) Trump stated his campaign was spied upon… Labeled conspiracy, Proven TRUE;
    2) Conspiracy stating Trump praised the KKK… Proven FALSE; he specifically called out the White Supremacists and KKK as not good people;
    3) Trump stated the Deep State manufactured evidence of Russian Collusion… Proven TRUE as Clinesmith admitted modifying documents and numerous government agents admitted during the first impeachment no evidence was ever uncovered.

    The List goes On and On and On…
    … and Libtards still keep questioning why Patriots do not trust the media or government????

    Next, let’s evaluate the “deprogramming” demand…
    This sounds quite a lot like the re-education camps formed by Mao Zedong. Perhaps this columnist should review history prior to making such bold claims. America was constructed on Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness; traits found NOWHERE in the Communist Manifesto.
    People spouting these theories should be called out as Communists rather than provided “air time” without context.

  3. people like this clown get upset when you don’t believe what they believe I’m not a trump plan not abide I don’t need to vote but I know one people blowing smoke up my ass why would anybody listen to the idiot
