During a recent interview on CNN with Christiane Amanpour, Hillary Clinton made some remarks that have left many people surprised. She suggested a need for a "formal deprogramming" of Trump supporters while discussing the state of the Republican party and the influence of MAGA extremists. This comment has drawn attention for its apparent lack of self-awareness and its failure to acknowledge extremism within her own party.

It's worth noting the irony in Clinton's concern about extremism, given that extremists within the Democratic party have been active for years. Before Trump, George W. Bush was unfairly compared to Hitler, and the federal government was used against Trump during his presidency. Additionally, Clinton's credibility is questionable, as she supported the discredited Steele Dossier and faced no legal consequences due to perceived Republican inaction.
What is particularly worrisome is Clinton's suggestion of "formal" reeducation for Republicans, which raises concerns about how far she and others might go to suppress political opposition. The fact that Amanpour laughed during this exchange also raises questions about CNN's standards.
But Clinton's controversial statements don't stop there. During a speech at Georgetown University, she placed blame on men for starting wars, seemingly ignoring her own involvement in conflicts like the war in Libya. This highlights her willingness to shift blame and her seeming lack of shame.
The key takeaway here is the importance of holding Democrats accountable. Trump's attempt at national unity by not prosecuting Clinton didn't yield the desired results. It's crucial for Republicans to uphold the law equally and ensure that both parties are held responsible for their actions. Anything less would be unacceptable.
