The Deep State is a legitimate concept. It refers to the intractable, permanent state—the bureaucracy, or the unseen, unelected Juggernaut that reflexively maintains the status quo in government departments.
I first heard the concept in 2014, on … yes, PBS, courtesy of PBS’s Bill Moyers, who is considered an august force on the Left. On the Right, the great James Burnham wrote about the Deep State in 1941, except he termed it the Managerial State.
Reflexively, Trump supporters grasp the nature of the extra-constitutional processes and forces that make voter-supported change near impossible.
Intellectually, most ordinary Trump supporters will find it hard to explain a concept like the Deep State, The Managerial State, etc.
For that, a contemptible coward, Gary Tuchman of CNN, mocks these Americans in a most cruel and asinine way. This segment is statist Big Media in all its contempt for ordinary, sensible folks.
Tuchman’s Deep State mention is 2:14 minutes into this segment, when this contemptible man becomes particularly ugly and patronizing with a Trump-supporting lady. Again, it’s 2:14 minutes into the segment.
Why don’t you pick on thinkers who can explain the concept, you coward?!
