ICYMI: Rubio Takes on Elites for Defending the “Deep State”

Apr 16, 2024 | Press Releases

Elites Love the “Deep State” Because They Loathe the American People

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)

…It comes as no surprise that America’s self-proclaimed “newspaper of record” is leading the charge to defend the “deep state.” After all, this is the paper that published an anonymous op-ed in 2018—two months before the mid-term elections—from “a senior [Trump] official” claiming to be “quiet resistance within the administration”….

There are hundreds of thousands of men and women in government who do good work, day in and day out…. But there are others who act as self-appointed “protectors” of institutions against politicians they don’t like. What they—and the New York Times—ignore is that our system of government vests power in those politicians because they were elected by Americans. When bureaucrats subvert democratically elected officials, they’re really subverting the people who voted those officials into office — people like you….

Those men and women who believe they are above the law and can abuse authorities to punish their perceived political opponents have done more to harm trust in our institutions than anyone else. Their misconduct tarnishes the hard work of countless federal employees who serve their country with honor and distinction….

The Times understands the distinction [between these two groups], so why did it publish a splashy article praising the “deep state”? Unfortunately, the answer is very simple: despite claiming to love democracy, many liberal elites distrust the vast majority of the American people—even despise them. This fact explains why they tried to ban Trump from the ballot. It is why they try to censor conservatives on social media. And it is why they push for unilateral policy change through the courts and corporations, instead of through Congress….

Looking ahead to another Trump administration, it’s clear why liberal elites want to protect the “deep state.” They hate Donald Trump and everything he stands for. But what they’re really doing is denying voters their choice, and that’s an actual threat to our democracy.
