Compare Gabbard’s quote here to one from Trump.“What am I doing? I’m fighting the deep state,” he told Sharyl Attkisson on Full Measure back in 2020, according to Just The News. “I’m fighting the swamp…If it keeps going the way it’s going, I have a chance to break the deep state. It’s a vicious group of people. It’s very bad for our country.” Or a recent tweet from Republican Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona,
The greatest threat to our democracy is not Trump voters or parents protesting at school board meetings, but the permanent Washington elite which has weaponized the govt and teamed up with corporate media to intimidate and silence those who dare to disagree with them. pic.twitter.com/lRIO5ia3DX— Tulsi Gabbard 🌺 (@TulsiGabbard) August 22, 2022
“The Deep State must be fired. Obama embedded tens of thousands of leftists into the bureaucracy. They obstructed Trump every day. The bureaucracy must be gutted before we have any hope of truly putting America First.” It would seem that an understanding of the danger posed by a deeply entrenched bureaucratic shadow government accountable to no one crosses party lines. After all, even Politico accused Trump in 2021 of having tried to construct his own “‘deep state’ of loyalists” that Biden subsequently had to “root out.” So, either the Democrats also see the danger, or the former Representative from Hawaii is the one actually trying to cross party lines by not only aligning herself against the group she’s very careful not to call the “deep state,” but by also championing beleaguered parents and calling them “patriots.” Dinesh D’Souza even stepped up to laud Gabbard for this one, tweeting, “I’m grateful for Tulsi Gabbard taking a stand here, but why don’t we get this sort of clarity more often from Republicans?”

This is not the rhetoric of someone who is making a play for moderates or Democrats; this is what someone says when they’re appealing to conservatives. She also substitutes for Tucker Carlson and defends Kyle Rittenhouse and calls out the insanity of woke gender identity in politics. Is there a pattern forming here?
