Rid gov­ern­ment of ‘deep state’

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - THOMAS WINTHROP Fair­fax, Vir­ginia

James Comey’s be­hav­ior makes for a per­fect ex­am­ple of the trea­sonous ac­tions of the deep state, those un­elected, en­trenched gov­ern­ment em­ploy­ees who be­lieve they know bet­ter than the Amer­i­can pub­lic and have a “duty” to pro­tect us from our own mis­guided be­liefs (“James Comey’s smug skirt of spirit of law,” Web, Aug. 29).

Mr. Comey is no dif­fer­ent from the mega­lo­ma­ni­acs who have wrought de­struc­tion through­out his­tory in the mis­taken be­lief that they are the repos­i­tory of wis­dom and truth, some­thing of which we mere mor­tals have no con­cep­tion.

Mr. Comey’s book, “A Higher Loy­alty,” is in­dica­tive of his own lofty self-con­cep­tion as “above” the de­plorables who in­habit the Earth. His lack of insight into the in­spec­tor gen­eral’s re­port con­cern­ing his be­hav­ior (as ev­i­denced by his re­cent tweets) re­in­forces the need to weed out of gov­ern­ment all em­ploy­ees with the deep-state men­tal­ity.

Such peope are anath­ema to democ­racy, the rule of law and the very fun­da­men­tals of free­dom.
