"Former CIA Director John Brennan Calls for Mao-Like Public Humiliation Sessions for Trump Supporters Before They Are Accepted Back into Society" timebomb
Yes. John Brennan voted for Gus Hall, the head of the CPUSA when he was a young man. Hall was a perennial candidate for president in those days.
And after that Brennan applied for employment at CIA, and unbelievably they accepted him after a full security screen. This would have included intensive investigations as well as counter-intelligence and lifestyle polygraphs.
I remember this guy when he had just joined CIA and was working in Saudi Arabia. He was a frighteningly stupid and nasty man even then.
This reminds me of the great spook Gina Haspel (a favorite of Brennan at CIA) who began government employment as the post librarian at Ft. Devens, Massachusetts, a Camp Swampy like place where I started my army life.
I was in college during the "Great Leap Forward" under Mao. We laughed sadly at the thought of those poor benighted souls suffering through that.
