Last week, right-wing radio host Dave Janda appeared on Sarah Westall’s “Business Game Changers” program, where he claimed that if Hillary Clinton had been elected president in 2016, he would currently be sitting in a government re-education camp or have already been killed.
While discussing the right-wing conspiracy theory that the Trump administration has been quietly racking up thousands of sealed indictments against powerful political, media, and business leaders who will soon be rounded up in mass raids, Janda and Westall voiced their irritation that these promised arrests have not yet materialized but tempered their disappointment by simply reminding themselves of how much worse things would be under President Hillary Clinton.
“The only thing that gives me comfort is I think, ‘What would it be like if Hillary had won that election?'” Janda said. “First of all, I can tell you that you and I wouldn’t be having this conversation because probably you and I would be in a re-education [camp], and I’m not overstating this, this is not hyperbole. I believe at least I would be in a re-education camp, if [I was even] still breathing at this point.”
