1. Time.

I think the fever will fade when Trump becomes increasingly irrelevant. These aren't people with a lot of consistency... They'll drift away... I hope

2. I think you'd have to use the deprogramming techniques that are use with religious cultists

I don't know what those are though.

Rationality and education won't work.

3. A strong dose of Buddhist teaching about virtue, except

alas unlike Christianity, Buddhists don't proselytize and try to convert people. You have to ask for teachings. Moist Westerners aren't aren't ready for Buddhism.

7. You might have noticed ...

... they're not interested in virtue. Self-professed Christians have abandoned the teachings of their own religion - they're not about to be swayed by the teachings of another.

10. "Reeducate" is a very stupid word to use in this context

 

Why not simply try to persuade?

11. Us. Vote in programs that will make their lives better.

Health care, universal pre-K, child tax credits, education including trade schools…

Sound familiar? If we could refrain from shaming them (while absolutely holding the line on our beliefs and requirements) they’d eventually be happier.

That and tfg being gone. And frankly I think he’s fading away.

12. There is no re-education

The lazy lying streaming pile Hump merely shined a light on what was already there.
