This article combines three pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives. The first is a recurrent narrative about the existence in the US of a “Deep State” that rules above elected politicians. According to this narrative, US presidents and other public officials have little or no real power, while decision-making lies in the hands of the “Deep State”.
The second narrative, which has recently emerged in some pro-Kremlin outlets, suggests that “Satanism” is the value-system of “global élites/secret élites”, who allegedly seek to destroy traditional Christian values, such as the sacredness of human life, and replace them with immoral and perverse pseudo-religions. See here for EU vs Disinfo’s analysis of this emerging trend of using Satan to reinforce pro-Kremlin disinformation messages.
The third narrative, which is common in pro-Kremlin disinformation, is about the West’s alleged moral decadence, materialism, perverted values, and hostility to traditional religion, which Western governments or “global élites” allegedly seek to undermine and to replace with pseudo-religions (such as LGBT ideology).
The article’s claims that there is a “Satanic Deep State” in the US and that “progressivism” in the West (which the article hints is closely related to Satanism) is destroying traditional values are obviously unfounded.
First of all, there is no evidence that a “Deep State” exists in the US. No reputable political scientist and researcher has ever confirmed the existence of a “Deep State” in the United States.
There is also no evidence to support the claim that “global élites” adhere to a “Satanic” system of values, nor that they seek to destroy Christianity and traditional values.
The term “satanic Deep State” is used by the US right-wing extremist QAnon movement, who believe that Trump is fighting a satanic “Deep State” of “global elites” involved in pedophilia, human trafficking and the harvesting of a supposedly life-extending chemical from the blood of abused children.
Read previous cases claiming that President Trump will be assassinated if he confronts the Deep State, that the Satanic and criminal Western élites lead their society through perversion, abomination and sodomy, and that the values of the EU and the COE are not Christian values but the values of Satan.
