The conservative media are an integral part of the media complex, the same media complex that has morphed into an unexpected mutant bastard child as The Z Man explains.
Then there is the overlap between the academy, government and the media. When Obama took office, over 100 media members quit and went to work for the new administration. As the managerial state has grown and matured, it has absorbed the mass media with it. Look at the major chat shows and you often see people who have been in government, media and the academy.
With Trump slowly steamrolling through the American seaboard swamp, the conservative media who sold their collective souls to be a part of the managerial state are beginning to get nervous. How else to explain lunatic articles such as the following?
From Townhall: The deep state is real and much bigger than you know.
I used to be a doubter who would cringe, just a little, at any mention of “the deep state.” I admit it, it all seemed a little far-fetched to me that there was this cabal of careerists conspiring from within the government to harm President Donald Trump when I first heard it. I never doubted there were individuals doing it, but a wide net of conspirators seemed like something out of a bad movie more than anything that could actually happen in the United States. I was wrong, very wrong, the deep state is real.
The writer, Derek Hunter, used to be a doubter not just for the deep state but for Trump. From a piece he wrote on the eve of the 2016 election:
There are about 330 million Americans I would’ve preferred to be on the ballot than the two major party candidates. But unless a crazy scientist pulls up to my house in a DeLorean in the next 48 hours, either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be president-elect by nightfall Wednesday.
The internet is forever, Derek.
But now he believes in the deep state. Hooray! It must really exist now that Derek believes in it. And with all of the advances that have been made in the last 18 months to expose the rot at the heart of the American managerial state, who do we have to thank for that? Let’s ask good old Derek.
Getting the desired message out is only part of the battle, it has to be believed by a significant percentage of the public for it to really matter. Conditioning the public to be receptive to that message, without questioning how it came about or why they should care required subtle indoctrination over a lifetime.
As it stands, liberals have that infrastructure in place, they had that support system ready to go. And, not to get all Scooby-Doo on you, they would’ve gotten away with it were it not for the existence of conservative media.
Stop it, please. You’re killing me here.
The delusion knows no bounds, no bottom, no sunken end game. These people are part of the problem. The only reason that the deep state is in the process of being exposed and hopefully destroyed is because of one man – President Donald Trump. The guy that Derek would have preferred any one of 330 million Americans to stand in his place.
(For some real fun times have a read of this piece that he wrote a few months before the election called advice for Donal Trump. Seriously, why does anyone listen to these people?)
There is one other reason that the deep state is being exposed, and that reason is the internet. If these pathetic faux conservative gatekeepers had had their way like in the old days then we’d all know nothing about it. And now they want to claim credit? Give me a break. You’re part of the problem, fuckers.
