(ConservativeUnit)- Former Republican Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee hit back this week at leftist calls for supporters of President Donald Trump to be “reprogrammed.”
During a discussion on Fox & Friends, Huckabee reminded those calling for Trump supporters to shut up and be forced to change their minds why people voted for President Trump in the first place.
“The first thing would be to get some of these leftist loons to take their boot off my neck,” he said. “I don’t need that. I’m supposed to be a free American with the capacity to think for myself.”
Huckabee said that if his views were as horrible as left-wing radicals say they are, then nobody would follow him or agree with him.
But they do.
Following the Capitol Hill riot, where a small contingent of pro-Trump supporters turned violent and stormed the Capitol Building – resulting in several deaths – Democrats and media figures have repeatedly blamed the president for “inciting” violence and even called for Trump supporters to be deprogrammed.
For instance, far-left CBS News anchor Katie Couric said on “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday that Republicans who voted against impeaching President Donald Trump need to be forced to change the way they think.
“The question is how are e going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump,” Couric, a member of the anti-Trump cult, said.

Couric faced a huge amount of backlash for her vile comments, which fly in the face of the very principle of democracy – the backbone of the American system that allows people to have different opinions.
Talk show host Joe Pagliarulo publicly pondered whether Couric realized that words like “deprogram” have been used by dictators like Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin.
do you think @katiecouric has any clue that saying things like “deprogram” is verbiage Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini used?

Huckabee said on Fox that there is no “cult” of Trump supporters but instead people all over the country who appreciate the policies of President Donald Trump, including “standing up for the sanctity of life, standing with Israel by moving an embassy into that country, and resetting the Middle easy.”
“I’m glad he cut taxes, deregulated for businesses so that people had the highest number of jobs among Hispanics, Blacks and women in the history of the country. I’m glad that he pushed back against China so we’re not rolling over as these Communists continue to steal everything, including our information and our data and every single secret and innovation we’ve created,” Huckabee added.
Does that sound like a crazy person who needs deprogramming to you? Thought not…
