Not only were the liberal media trying to exploit the attack on the Capitol to call for the deplatforming of conservatives, but there were some who wanted to “deprogram” conservatives. And in an appearance on Fox Business Network’s The Evening Edit, Media Research Center Founder and President Brent Bozell called them out for demanding what communist dictators had done to their oppositions for decades.
At the top of the segment, anchor Liz MacDonald noted there was “this growing call by Democrats and TV hosts to stop extremist conspiracy theories on the right” even though “there are extremist conspiracy theories on the left.” She also fretted: “The dangers -- Brent, this feels like it is veering wildly out of control into a push to deplatform all conservatives.”
Singling out former broadcast anchor Katie Couric, Bozell cautioned viewers about what she wanted. “She’s talking about 75 million people who voted for Donald Trump and this deprogramming thing, Liz, this is something Mao Zedong advocated. This is what Ho Chi Minh advocated, this is what they’re doing in North Korea as we speak,” he said.
“Never in my life did I think I would hear somebody who is considered to be respectable calling for us to be deprogrammed. She’s not the only one,” he added. “AOC, others are saying the same thing. This is a radical left-wing that is showing its true colors with the advent of Joe Biden. It’s showing America who they really are, what they really believe.”
