A Manhattan pharma heiress said her mother had to hire her a $300-a-day deprogrammer to unlearn the woke views she was ‘brainwashed’ with at an all-woman’s Massachusetts college.

Annabella Rockwell, 29, graduated from Mount Holyoke in Western Massachusetts in 2015 and said it drove her to drink and made her briefly become estranged from her mother, who threw a vase during one of their arguments.

Prior to attending the elite school to study history, which charges $60,000 a year, Rockwell said she grew up in a ‘traditional’ household and had considered herself to be open-minded.

However, the politics minor claimed the all-women’s school ‘totally indoctrinated’ her into thinking she was an oppressed victim of the patriarchy.

‘This professor tells me about the patriarchy. I barely knew what the word meant. I didn’t know what she was talking about,’ she told the New York Post. ‘I wasn’t someone that into feminism. I just knew that I felt I had always been free to do what I wanted. 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. Now you have to fight it.

‘And I just went down this deep rabbit hole.’

She claimed the all-women’s school ‘totally indoctrinated’ her into thinking she was an oppressed victim of the patriarchy. Prior to attending the elite school, which charges $60,000 a year, Rockwell said she grew up in a ‘traditional’ household and had considered herself to be open-minded

That rabbit hole – which started when she took a Gender Studies class in her junior year left a deep division between her and her mom. She felt she had to educate about the real state of the world, including writing her a ‘manifesto’ that claimed her mother treated her like a ‘wind-up toy.’

In her post-graduation manifesto, she also accused her mother Melina, who she had once considered her best friend, of never loving her.

‘My thoughts were no longer my own,’ she told the Post. ‘I left school very anxious, very nervous, very depressed and sad.

‘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.’

She said her professors ‘encouraged alienation’ from parents and even ‘even offered their homes to stay in.’

‘They’d say, like, don’t go see them, come stay with us for the holiday. Most of my classmates believed all this stuff, too. If you didn’t you were ostracized,’ the former competitive figure skater told the outlet.

In addition to the alleged brainwashing, Rockwell said she found the freshmen rituals aggressive and that the drinking culture was massive on campus.

She said she wasn’t into ‘feminism’ before going to the school, but after taking a gender studies class in her junior year, she went down a ‘rabbit hole’

Some freshmen even cut their hair into the MoHo Chop, which is a ‘radical assertion of their LGBT identities,’ for some and for others just an initiation ritual, according to campus newspaper the Mount Holyoke News.

Rockwell, who grew up on the Upper East Side, did not participate in this ritual, she told the Post.

Conservative commentator Laura Loomer, also 29, said the ‘entire culture there revolved around hating men and being a lesbian.’

Loomer attended the school for one semester in 2011 and left for alleged bullying. During her short time at the school, another anonymous student wrote an ‘I Hate Laura Loomer’ post on Holyoke Confessional.

Loomer also said the ‘sister schools’ – Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Smith, Radcliffe, Vassar and Wellesley – are also ‘designed to be these elite institutions for women at a time when places like Harvard just took men. But they’re no longer places for ideas and debate and a well-rounded education.’

‘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 naïve young women for the sake of advancing a toxic agenda,’ Loomer told the Post.

She now works for a conservative company after briefly working on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. However, she said she started questioning Democratic values after moving home to Florida in 2018 (pictured with Donald Trump)

Both former students say the school is a breeding ground for ‘mean girls.’

DailyMail.com has reached out to Mount Holyoke for comment.

Due to the indoctrination, which Melinda claims stole the light out of her ‘bubbly breath of fresh air’ daughter, the mother hire a $300-a-day deprogrammer and Rockwell’s old tennis court Scott Williams to reverse her back.

She claimed Rockwell’s time at the school was ‘no different than if she’d been taken away by the Moonies or the Children of God.’

‘She was no longer the Annabella I’d known all her life,’ she told the Post.

The Rockwells were told it could take up to seven years to un-brainwash the young graduate, but the older one knew it would be an uphill battle.

‘It was like walking a tightrope,’ Melina told the Post. ‘I couldn’t push too hard or I’d lose her, but if I let go I felt I might not see her again. It was as bad as trying to get a child off the streets who’s on heroin.

‘[Professors and older students] tell the students they are special — it’s like they are anointed — then they tell them how oppressed they are and what victims they are and how they have to go out in the world and be activists to stop the oppression.’

Laura Loomer (pictured in a green scarf) also attended the school for one semester in 2011 and left after she claimed she was ‘bullied’ for her conservative views. She said the school was the place to go to ‘hate the patriarchy and white people and the founding stock of our country’

The former student thanks for her mother for being persistent and now works as a fundraiser for PragerU, a conservative video group that promotes conservative values.

‘If my mom had not kept harping at me and not given up I know where I would be right now,’ she told the Post.

‘Mount Holyoke met its match in my mother. If it wasn’t for her, I’d probably be living in Massachusetts, working for some super-progressive politician, hanging out with people I had nothing in common with except ideology and drinking all the time. And I’d be miserable.’

Although she didn’t care for her time at the school looking back, she said she doesn’t want to ‘smear’ the other girls who had attended the school.

‘They were young and impressionable. It wasn’t fair to anyone that there was no space for discourse.’
