ABC’s George Stephanopoulos: ‘Deep State Is Packed with Patriots’

ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos has declared that “the deep state is packed with patriots” who “serve in silence.”

Stephanopoulos praised faceless, unelected operatives for serving “on the front lines of the most intense crises.”

He made the remarks on the controversial ABC propaganda show “The View.”

Stephanopoulos was discussing his book where he interviewed military and intelligence community bureaucrats.

“Some people like to call those people the deep state,” Stephanopoulos told the shows’ co-hosts, who obediently nodded along in agreement.

“Well, the big thing I learned doing this book is that the deep state is packed with patriots.

“People who go to work every single day on the frontlines of the most intense crises the country faces and do it to serve their country and to serve the presidency — not the president — they don’t care about political parties.

“They’re there to serve the presidency and the institution.”

“And they’re doing it anonymously,” co-host Sunny Hostin chimed in with apparent praise.

“Absolutely!” Stephanopoulos responded.

“As one of them told me, Mike Sealy said, you know, ‘We serve in silence.'”

The unelected bureaucrats are widely believed to be working to thwart Trump’s agenda.

Stephanopoulos was also asked to weigh in on the current state of the 2024 presidential race and a recent poll showing Trump leading Democrat President Biden in several crucial battleground states.

“It is close right now, though I think the polls show [Trump is] ahead in the states that matter the most, largely because President Biden isn’t doing as well as last time with younger voters and black voters,” Stephanopoulos said.

The ABC host echoed his warning last month about the stakes of the 2024 election and the abnormality of Trump’s circumstances.

“I think the most important thing that people should understand about this election is how far from normal it is,” the ABC host said.

“We have never had a former president, presidential candidate who was impeached, then indicted for trying to overturn an election.

“Never in all of our history.”

Stephanopoulos also falsely claimed that Trump has refused to commit to accepting the results of the upcoming election.

“The peaceful transfer of power is the most fundamental tenet of our democracy,” he continued.

“Refusing to accept it is un-American.

“I believe it’s unconstitutional, and I think it’s the job of the media to put that in context.”

Stephanopoulos opened an episode of his Sunday show “This Week” last month with commentary on the high stakes of the election.

He warned that the presidential race would be a “test” for American citizens, the media, and the candidates.

“It’s all too easy to fall into reflexive habits, to treat this as a normal campaign, where both sides embrace the rule of law, where both sides are dedicated to a debate based on facts and the peaceful transfer of power,” Stephanopoulos said at the time.

“But that is not what’s happening this election year.

“Those bedrock tenets of democracy are being tested in a way we haven’t seen since the Civil War.

“It’s a test for the candidates, for those of us in the media, and for all of us as citizens.”

His remarks came after Biden had urged the media to frame the presidential election in such terms.
