From outlandish rightwing conspiracy theory to confirmed by the New York Times:
But they obviously try to put a spin on it by saying it’s just Honest Public SERVANTS who are trying to save us from Trump.
They’re doing this for your own good, you ungrateful peasants! (Even though the header picture they chose for the article clearly has a dark and shadowy vibe to it.)
The most annoying part of this–besides them attempting to gang-rape 250 years of American democracy–is them trying to act like they’re the Good Guys the whole time.
I’m sorry but you cannot have it both ways. You can’t be executing an obvious anti-democratic coup to destroy a duly-elected President while also being the good guys.
Just own it, you slimy bastards. Own the fact that you are the bad guy, the tyrants, the sinister cabal.
Now, people might nitpick here and say that this is the opinion section of the New York Times, but come on: we all know the opinion section is just where they put the material they can’t publish in the “news” section because it’s too obviously partisan.
The Opinion section has the blessing of the Editors one way or another. We all know how this works.
The New York Times has confirmed the existence of the Deep State as well as the fact that it is actively trying to undo the result of the 2016 election–and, presumably, rig the result of the 2020 election.
