If you’re a conservative who’s active on social media, then you’re probably aware of DC Draino.
Draino’s Twitter account was removed under former leadership but has thankfully been restored under the more lenient free speech advocate that is Elon Musk.
The influencer's real name is Rogan O’Handley, and he’s one of the most powerful conservative influencers on Instagram. The name “DC Draino” is a nod to draining the D.C. swamp, which is something he believes is sorely needed.
Jason Whitlock sat down with O’Handley on "Fearless" to discuss a possible secession, their values, and the evidence that America is not finished — despite its disintegrating Christian values and the 34 charges recently brought against Donald Trump.
While O’Handley is not a proponent of secession, he agrees with Whitlock that they “don’t share values with these people,” but he does believe “they can be convinced in the long run.”
“I believe they were programmed like this from media brainwashing and propaganda, and they can be deprogrammed.”
When Whitlock mentions that it feels like Christian values have become a disadvantage, O’Handley has an inspiring message.
He says that “the forces of darkness want you to feel like it’s hopeless. I think hope is the number one thing people need to restore greatness to a culture and to a country.”
While Democratic politicians and transgender influencers like Dylan Mulvaney continue to hack away at American values, O’Handley has a positive take on the future — so long as Americans don’t give up.
“The one thing we cannot do is give up. The one thing we must do is continue fighting and chipping away.”
He continues, “They put this communist infestation in place for 40, 50 years. We’re not going to get rid of it overnight. But with free speech,” he continues, “ and God on our side — who are following in God’s path — doing what God would want us to do, you know it’s actually kind of an opportunity.”
