Mark Levin Gives "Unvarnished Truth" On Romney Loss
realclearpolitics.com ^ | 11/'6/12 | Mark Levin

Posted on 11/07/2012 7:14:30 PM PST by GrandJediMasterYoda

Mark Levin passionately defends conservatism and analyzes last night's election in the opening monologue of the Wednesday broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio program. Here's a partial transcript of Levin's opening remarks:

MARK LEVIN: We conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny. Period. We will not negotiate the terms of our economic and political servitude. Period. We will not abandon our child to a dark and bleak future. We will not accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we inherited from every single future generation in this country. We will not accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats, rather than self-sufficient human beings. There are those in this country who choose tyranny over liberty. They do not speak for us, 57 million of us who voted against this yesterday, and they do not get to dictate to us under our Constitution.

We are the alternative. We will resist. We're not going to surrender to this. We will not be passive, we will not be compliant in our demise. We're not good losers, you better believe we're sore losers! A good loser is a loser forever. Now I hear we're called 'purists.' Conservatives are called purists. The very people who keep nominating moderates, now call us purists the way the left calls us purists. Yeah, things like liberty, and property rights, individual sovereignty, and the Constitution, and capitalism. We're purists now. And we have to hear this crap from conservatives, or pseudo-conservatives, Republicans.

Without mentioning names Mark kicked Ann Coulter's arse.

It was salve after hearing her pompous rant on Hannity's show.

A stirring speech, but this is ultimately empty rhetoric. Conservatives no longer have the power to affect change. Obamao occupies the White House, the Senate is full of rubber stamps, and Boehner and the House will only give token opposition until it’s tee time.

Gee, that’s swell, but now Obama is going to stack the supreme court for the next 40 years.

It is our job as conservatives to move the ball down the field, then make the next play.

We just screwed up hard.
Rush knows it and I know it.

Rush and Hannity were a mess.

Hannity's a joke. I listened to Rush for the first 30 minutes of his show today and couldn't believe what I was hearing. To actually question whether Conservative's need to "re-think" our positions and core values on-air had me stunned.

Then hearing the questions Rush asked "should we be for free birth control? I'm asking, I don't know!" and emphatically stating he wasn't asking it as a rhetorical question had me shaking my head.

I couldn't listen anymore and I turned it off.

As for me, Levin's got it exactly right. I've heard very little of Levin's show over the years but after reading what he said today I'm going to make it a point to now.

Simply stated, there is NO WAY IN HELL this Conservative will *ever* compromise on his core principles. Not now, not ever. Period. Just because 53 million voted for freebies over freedom doesn't make it right.

I wish to God Levin had his own TV show on primetime TV, I mean at least on Fox. It really ticks me off this guy is just on AM radio. He is THE man and it’s like he’s brushed under the rug or something. I don’t know if he does this to himself or he is held back. I rarely listen to Rush or Hannity anymore, but here in New York 6pm I am by that radio religiously. “Here heeere...he’s heeere!”

Rush never questioned core values.
He questioned the composite of the current electorate.
He questioned tactics.

Just so you know, Mark has a day job running the Landmark Legal Foundation in DC. He also has some health issues he has to deal with. That's why he doesn't do anything else outside his daily radio show.

LOL you won't hear it from me, I have more respect for outright marxists than I have for "moderates". At least marxists don't play friendly. Moderates feign friendship than stab you in the back at the first opportunity.

Moderates are nothing but lying, manipulative, bottom feeding, scum.

I think Rush was shell shocked.

As for me, I’m taking a break from all the talk radio, (don’t watch tv).

I’m going to hunker down and put some finishing touches on the prepping and figure out a way to protect my assets.

She went off on Akin, Mourdock, Angle and conservative "purists" & how they needed to be purged from the party.

When Hannity then asked if conservatives are the problem why did the moderate Romney, whom she heartily approved, lost I thought she was gonna stroke out.

The “Unvarnished Truth” is that Republicans lose presidential elections..."

This loss had nothing to do with Romney being a Rhino.  50% or more of the people in this country either hate us, want free stuff, have white guilt, are racist, or are just plain stupid.  I really do not think that Reagan would even win right now.  The left out number us and they, unfortunately, have this country in their grip.  That grip is getting tighter every day.

That’s true. I’m one of the rare few who’ve slipped between the cracks. If I didn’t have such a defiant streak, I probably would have caved in to the liberalism of public school and college like most of my classmates.

Levin is such a phony! He SHOULD be the best talk host. He knows the Constitution and REAL conservatism. But, when push comes to shove, he's just a hack who will say whatever GOP hackery will keep him on the big affiliates.

How could a guy who loves dogs express blind devotion to cops every show? I'll tell you how ... he's a hack. A hack like Hannity or Mike Gallagher doesn't know any better. Levin does. That's why it's offensive that he waits ‘til the day AFTER to rock the GOP boat.

I'll bet he actually voted for Ron Paul in the primaries.

*****************************

I almost agree, in a backwards, mirror image kind of way. I think the Geriatric Old Plotters should be purged from conservatives before they do any more harm. They have undermined conservative strength and vitality now for more than twenty years.

I would include Ms. Don-Rickles-in-drag among the Geriatric Old Plotters.

He questioned tactics.

When he asked non-rhetorically "should the republican party be for free birth control? I don't know!" that's questioning core values. There's no way around that.

And that's just one example from the thirty minutes I listened to today.

I listened to part of Rush and Hannity only because I was in the car.

I too get excited when I hear, “He’s here, he’s here!” TV is so constraining and all about gimmickry. An intellectual show like Mark’s probably wouldn’t work. Radio is a more powerful medium for him. Maybe a different time slot would bring him an even bigger audience, but I know quite a few people who like to listen to him in the evening.

Akin and Mourdock could have effected change had they curbed their tongues and actually been elected, but they had to blow their load so to speak, by being single issue purists.
There was no need for them to put their core values aside, they just needed to not scare people away by being extreme on what quite frankly should be states rights matters.
They should have just argued that it’s a states rights matter.
They would have at least moved the ball.
Now they, along with the rest of us are going to be paying for abortion and BC at a federal level.
How was that helpful to their core values?

Wow that is awesome. I like what the top comment says: "This is back when Country music was really Country music. Nowadays, it all sounds like Pop music and the "Artists" are Sell-outs! Shame" Daaaamn right! I watched a bit of the CMA awards a few weeks ago and I had to turn it off. I couldn't believe what the hell I was hearing and seeing, like a Broadway show with pop music. Nothing even remotely resembling country on it. And Reba McEntire with her newly deformed plastic surgery face sitting in the audience, that about said it all, just all fake BS nothing about the music.

I would be willing to bet that Mark did not vote for Ron Paul in the primaries.

I’m not sure I understand your statement about waiting to the rock the GOP boat. Are you faulting him for getting behind Romney?

Blind support for police officers — I wouldn’t mind talking to him about that subject and learning more because I’m not too high on the police right now. Bad experience with neighbor cop’s family and threats that he can do whatever he likes to me, an old man, because he is a cop. Not much help from our county force.

I think he was shedding light on the dilemma many are feeling today.

Rush is as conservative as the day is long, but he is no saint.
He may be a prophet but he is no saint.
Same thing goes for Levin and for the record, I bought Liberty and Tyranny as a one of the graduation gifts for my son.
Maybe we need to lose some saints.
Our party has become splintered with single issue voters.

There are those in this country who choose tyranny over liberty. They do not speak for us, 57 million of us who voted against this yesterday, and they do not get to dictate to us under our Constitution.
