‘Republicans Are No Longer Entitled to Exist’: Leftists Call for Purge, Prof. Wants Trump Voters Punished Like Nazis

‘Republicans Are No Longer Entitled to Exist’: Leftists Call
for Purge, Prof. Wants Trump Voters Punished Like Nazis 1

Recently, several media elites including Katie Couric have called
for Trump supporters to be subjected to “deprogramming” even
though newly-inaugurated President Joe Biden has promised to
“heal” and “unite” the American people as he governs for
the next four years.�

As CBN News reported, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson
during an appearance on MSNBC said that there are “millions of
Americans — almost all white, almost all Republicans — who
somehow need to be deprogrammed.â€

Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family responded in a tweet
that millions of Americans weren’t crazy to support a candidate
who upheld conservative values.

“Despite calls from the likes of @katiecouric and others,
those who supported former President Trump don’t need to be
‘deprogrammed’ in Orwellian fashion. It wasn’t crazy to
support a candidate who championed so many of our deeply held

The term “deprogramming†that’s being used by American
liberals is raising eyebrows because it has also been used to
describe the way communist China has rounded-up millions of Muslim
Uyghurs, putting them into â€œre-educationâ€
concentration camps
 with forced labor.

Now, Georgetown University Law Professor Jonathan
 is calling out a Smith College professor who has gone
beyond calls for “deprogramming†and instead likened Trump
supporters and Republicans to Nazis. She says, like the Nazis, they
should be dealt with harshly, including Nuremberg-like trials and
the complete eradication of the Republican Party.

Instead of embracing President Biden’s calls for unity, Turley
noted in his blog that Loretta Ross, a professor who teaches
women’s and gender studies at the school, wants retaliatory
action against Trump supporters in Congress, universities, and even
those with “regular jobs.â€

In an article posted on the website CounterPunch, Ross advocates
that there should be no offer of unity to Trump supporters and the
Republican Party should not continue to exist.  It should also be
noted that the drawing accompanying the article appears to show
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) in a suit with a red tie giving a Nazi
“Heil Hitler†salute. 

“Republicans are no longer entitled to exist as a legitimate
political party because this authoritarian backlash has been
building since new Civil Rights laws were passed in 1964 and 1965
in response to white racist violence captured on TV that required
the National Guard to quell. Then-President Lyndon Johnson
predicted that most white people would flee the Democratic Party to
join the pro-segregationist, anti-feminist, and anti-gay revanchist
political movement of George Wallace, Richard Nixon, and Ronald
Reagan,†Ross wrote.  

“Every undemocratically selected Republican president since
the 1960s (by an electoral college designed to be disenfranchising)
has failed to repudiate this neo-fascist wing of their party,â€
she claimed. 

“I’m through giving Republicans the benefit of the doubt
after 50 years,†Ross declared.

The Smith College professor also goes one step further.
 As Turley
points out
, “Ross shows no concern for free speech or
academic freedom as she calls for identifying and condemning anyone
who is viewed as complicit with Trump over the last four years so
that they can be ‘treated with the same public condemnation that
the Nazis received after World War II’.â€

Turley warns that such views can be seen almost daily on social
media and have become common at universities across the
“What is unnerving is that such views are now common on the
Internet and increasingly common at universities. Many professors
who send me such columns admit that they are afraid to speak out.
There is a rising level of intolerance at universities. In over 30
years of teaching, I have never witnessed the level of intimidation
at colleges and universities that we have today. Indeed, these
columns are meant to normalize such calls for curtailing free
speech and academic freedom,†he wrote. 

“It is an effort not just to retaliate but use the chilling
effect of such threats to silence others (including effectively
barring opposing viewpoints from being published). Rather than
denounce such views as inimical to our intellectual mission, some
professors are rushing to prove their own bona fides by denouncing
colleagues or dismissing free speech values. They are afraid and I
cannot blame for that fear. However, silence or passivity in the
face of such calls will come at too high a price for our colleges
and our country.â€

Turley, a Georgetown University law professor, also noted Ross
appears to have totally recoiled from Biden’s pleas for healing
and unity. 

“As for calls from people like President Joe Biden for
reconciliation and healing, Ross balked at the very notion. She
calls for supporters to be denied jobs, media opportunities,
publishing contracts, and all other opportunities. What is
particularly chilling is her use of a statement from philosopher
Karl Popper: ‘In order to maintain a tolerant society, the
society must be intolerant of intolerance.’ Thus, intolerance of
opposing viewpoints is now tolerance. It is that easy,†he
