Skip to comments.MARK LEVIN: TEA PARTY ONLY THING THAT STANDS 'BETWEEN LIBERTY AND TYRANNY'
Posted on 11/17/2012 2:12:38 PM PST by Jim Robinson
Conservative scholar, talk radio host, and former Reagan administration official Mark Levin said conservatives need to first overthrow the Republican establishment to more successfully take on President Barack Obama and the institutional left.
We cannot get through Obama and the left until we get through the Republican Establishment, Levin said, railing against establishment consultants who attack the base and politicians who know nothing of Burkean reform because they have spent their whole careers clawing their way to the top.
In a talk at the Heritage Foundation on Wednesday with his mentor, former Reagan Attorney General Ed Meese, for whom Levin served as Chief of Staff, Levin said the Republican Party is, devouring the conservative movement, and the old bulls need to step aside in favor of a new generation of conservatives who are fluent in conservatism.
Its time for the old bulls to get out of the way and for the fresh faces who believe in conservatism and liberty and originalist principles to step up, Levin said, criticizing those like House Speaker John Boehner for yielding territory to the left in negotiations.
Levin said the Tea Party consists of constitutionalists, libertarians, Evangelicals, and those who are against the rigged establishment, beltway culture that for too long has not embraced conservatism and, as a consequence, lost national elections (George H.W. Bush, Bob Dole, John McCain, Mitt Romney).
The Tea Party is the only thing that stands between liberty and tyranny, Levin said. We have to defeat the Republican establishment mush in Washington, D.C.

I agree with Levin.
Ping for The Great One!! Bring back Reaganism and the Constitution!! Fire the RINO establishment!! Go, Palin!! Go, Tea Party!!
Sheesh, Mark talks like he’s a FReeper. Well, duh.
Post-Romney, RINO GOP must move Tea Party right, not wrong left
Are you tired? Isn’t it time to form the Tea Party to replace a certain other party?
Me too!! Boehner, et al, must go!!
Ditto. And we need to be prepared for the scorched earth policy of ridicule hurled our way by not only the left but also the RINO elite.
Mark Steyn’s statements are true, very true.
I maintain that BHO2 is neither Muslim nor Christian except when it is politically expedient. He self-avowed as a Marxist-Leninist during his years at Occidental College, and I believe he has remained a communist all his adult life. His sole intention in the Middle East is the destruction of Israel and the extermination of all Jews.
We are looking at a horrendous future for ourselves and our nation if this administration isn’t turned out wholesale. The ANC in South Africa has launched genocide against whites, and those Black Nationalists here who support the communists in the ANC advocate the same fate for whites here.
I believe that is Obama’s ultimate intention here in the U.S.A.
The Great One is right. Now lets start with Boehner.
We need ML to run for POTUS. I would bow to Nancy Pelosi if just to see The Great One debate the Kenyan just once. Ok, maybe not bow...sort of bow.
Twenty years too late. We’ve been a tyranny for a long time. The rabbit boiled a generation ago.
Sort of bow? You’re facing Pelosi, right? Attention! About face! Bow! Lower!
I mean “frog” :(
So, How is it going to happen? The country has gone Socialist right before our eyes.
An anecdote to back up what Levin is saying.
In 2010, Democratic Representative Parker Griffith (Al-05 Dist.) jumped from the Democrats to the Republican party. He was facing a voter base angry with Obama. So he jumped parties trying to retain his seat.
Griffith is a snake. He revealed his true character after his initial election and during the campaign. Mo Brooks took him on. Brooks is a lifelong conservative, well known and liked in the Huntsville Community.
John Boehnor came to Huntsville to campaign for.... party jumper Parker Griffith. Conservatives in North Alabama were livid. We went all out and buried Griffith in the primaries. Brooks is one of the staunch conservatives in congress now.
And John Boehnor campaigned against him.
