Mount Holyoke grad deprogrammed from women-only woke culture
She wound up “totally indoctrinated” into viewing the world as a toxic patriarchy and herself as an oppressed victim — and eventually had to be deprogrammed with the help of a deprogrammer who charged $300 a day.
Rockwell said she was shocked by how aggressively anti-male the students and professors were when she settled in at the women-only school.
“This professor tells me about the patriarchy. I barely knew what the word meant. I never experienced sexism. But I was told there’s the patriarchy and you don’t even understand it’s been working against you your whole life. You’ve been oppressed and you didn’t even know it. And I just went down this deep rabbit hole.”
By the time she graduated, she’d been “brainwashed” into believing she had been a lifelong victim of patriarchal oppression and had a duty to fight on behalf of other victims: women, people of color and LBGTQ folks.
“I left school very anxious, very nervous, very depressed and sad,” Rockwell said. “I saw everything through the lens of oppression and bias and victimhood. I came to the school as someone who saw everyone equally. I left looking for injustice wherever I could and automatically assuming that all white men were sexist. My thoughts were no longer my own.”
Laura Loomer, a conservative activist, also entered Mount Holyoke as a freshman in 2011 but unlike Rockwell left after one semester. She said she was bullied for her conservative views by both her classmates and professors.
“The entire culture there revolved around hating men and being a lesbian,” Loomer told The Post. “Mount Holyoke and all the Seven Sisters... They’re centers for indoctrination. If you send your kid there you’re signing them up to hate the patriarchy and white people and the founding stock of our country. It’s a bastardization of higher education for the sake of weaponizing naive young women for the sake of advancing a toxic agenda.”
Both Rockwell and Loomer said that students who were conservative or some of the campus ideology were bullied. “Basically, the college says they’re all about progressivism and equality but there are a lot of mean girls of all ages there.”
