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.

“The left out number us and they, unfortunately, have this country in their grip. That grip is getting tighter every day.”
You hit the nail squarely on the head. Period.
All this Tea Party talk, RINO talk, we need Sarah, it’s Romney’s fault, we need to stick to core values, etc etc etc is really meaningless because we are outnumbered.
I does not matter how we reorganize, change or what.
As Rush would say, there are more people in the cart than there are pulling it.
Once an entitlement is given, it cannot be taken away. The more the rats are in power the worse it gets.
This once great nation is dying from internal rot.
Americans in general don't object to that.
The real question is should we have to pay for someone else’s abortions, when a cheap little pill or abstinence could have prevented the pregnancy, and should religious health care providers be forced to add killing babies to the policies they provide to their employees.
Why do Pubbies let Obamanation acolytes get by with labeling killing babies as “birth control”.
we love america up here in the GWN and to quote Obie...”this is just a bump in the road”
One consolation perhaps in the election is that now the O fanatics won’t be able to say: O was only in there four years. He didn’t have time to implement his policies.
In another four years we will be able to say: this is what happens to a country when liberals are in charge.
There won’t be any money lift to give away.
I accidentally heard her as well and the only word running through my mind was hysterics and the sound was Charlie Brown’s teacher.
Did you notice she didn’t mention Scott Walker as a great Governor and when Sean tried to pin her down for a response, she gave a snarky sound?
Cops are 90% bad, the whole lot of them.
And no, I’ve never been arrested, just witnessed time and time agian exactly the kind of thug stuff you are reporting.
In the NorthEast it is like living in a police state already.
The same folks who take those jobs, are the type that will be the brownshirts, if you will.
People always say, how could our neighbors ever do that to their own people, it will never happen.
It has happened, it will happen, and it isn’t unlikely.
Ask 1925 Germany what they thought about that prospect. They would laugh you right out of their house and brand you an extremist nut, but you’d have been right.
” thought she was gonna stroke out.”
I was thinking the same thing and almost wished it would happen.
I didn’t listen to Mark tonight.
So what is he getting at?
If taxes are raised - should we refuse to pay?
Should we refuse to comply with the Obamacare mandate?
When he says they don’t get to dictate to us? Well.... what exactly is stopping them?
John Boehner? Please.....
No one on this thread equated "birth control" to abortion. That was quite a leap on your part, bet that landing hurt like hell.
I think the dems are united with “Hey, do what ever feels good”
Rep rights is not a Gov issue (it’s a personal matter), Gay marriage is not a Gov issue It is a Church Matter, though civil union is a Gov Matter).
Amnesty is a Gov issue and it is a problem that Reagan drug into our camp.
Lilly Ledbetter was a civil matter that should have been shot down because it was already addressed under current law.
I agree, but I do have to say this. How can the polls show that indies were leaning Romney big time, there were up to 14 million new republicans signed up to vote, we see much larger numbers than seen in YEARS this election day, and yet both democrats and republicans numbers were down? THIS DOES NOT COMPUTE. Why were battleground states’ results held for so long? To fix the count to reflect a win for Obama BEFORE publishing? Seems like swing states were purposely doing something to alter that counts. I felt something was fishy from the get-go. Not only that, but Obama was WAY too confident on winning. Was this prearranged via a threat? I would not count anything out with the dems. We know there was massive fraud by them, but with Obama’s DOJ they knew there would be no prosecutions afterwards. This was likely stolen BIG TIME. We MUST STOP early voting and take something all the way to the SC to force voter ID.
The cop’s punk son shot an arrow into the front of my house one night that could have been deadly if I had stepped onto my porch to see what the heck was going on in my front yard. Tore through my siding. Stupidly, I accepted an apology rather than calling the police. From that day on, it was nothing but harassment and threats. What kind of people pick on quiet senior citizens?
I did not get to listen to Rush or anyone else very much today, because I was working.
As I drove home, I heard the self flaggelating diatribe that the republicans/conservatives had not
“courted” latinos, women, young people, etc., etc. I think if there is any failing in the conservative/republican community, I believe it is a failure to keep up with technology. Democrats spoke effusively about “targeting” potential voters a couple of years ago as they set up shop in Chicago. In my humble opinion, I believe it went well beyond “targeting” and into “data mining”.
It doesn’t take much imagination to see a “Lonely Hearts” posting on Facebook from a single woman or a “foreclosed” posting from a homeowner to a “late notice” from a student on their student loans to see there is a possibility.
Combine these postings with algorythyms and a street map and you have potential voter to contact.
In the good old days we used voter registration and walk lists to target our potential voters.
We need to catch up with technology. I don’t think “data mining” is illegal. Maybe it is just smart! Smart enough to zero in on certain electoral republican districts, i., West, Bachmann, Mack, Brown, etc., as well as the presidential election.
Yes, we need to catch up!
“No more RINOs. No more wavering.”
Those words have been said for decades now. The country wants Bread & Circuses, even many in the party.
I’m sorry you have had to deal with this too.
My daughter lives with me and these people almost ran her and her little dog down. She now carries a camera, but most of the time she drives the dogs to a place outside of the neighborhood to walk safely.
I wrote on another thread something similar. I am usually not one for conspiracy theories, but this was all very strange. Seemingly record lines at the polls...voting extended to almost midnight in Virgina and Florida. Then the overall vote turns out to be far less than any election in decades?
>> “How was that helpful to their core values?” <<
Christ said “Let your yea be yea, and your nay be nay.
No one on this thread equated “birth control” to abortion
You miss my point!!!!! I didn’t accuse anyone on this thread of that.
The whole darn election Obozo and DembocRATS kept talking about the Catholic Church needing to provide “birth control” what they really meant,abortificants and sterilizations.
Ever since Paul Ehrlich wrote the population bomb, the left have advocated birth control of any sort including abortions and sterilizations.
No one called them on it during this election. They let them get by with calling this “birth control”. I don’t think my tax dollars should pay for any womans birth control, or any man’s viagra or lots of other s@#t either.That was not my point in this discussion.
All I pointed out was that private insurance already provides for birth control medications as does Planned Parenthood, so why the H@#l should buying birth control pills need to be provided by any new federal mandate?
Abortions and sterilizations are not provided by insurance, and this was really what the dastardly left was going for. No one called them on it.
You are the one taking a leap and misunderstanding my point. After your snide attitude. I hope you are the one with hurt butt. Do you always respond like a jerk?
Don’t bother to respond I don’t intend to ever read any of your comments again.
I think we have the technology.
Conservatives built most of that stuff, not art school drop outs.
The trick we need to learn is how to teach art school drop outs to become productive conservatives.
He said a lot of stuff.
He also said give Ceasar what is Ceasar’s
Early on in 2011, he endorsed Bachmann and Santorum. When it came time for his state to vote in April, he said he voted for Santorum. I remember hearing him say that but I also googled it.
That’s pretty much how I see it.
It’s going to get much worse after they force an amnesty down our throat.
We are going to have to change tactics and positions. This is just reality.
Somehow were going to have to find a way to compete for the Asian and Latio immigrants and more women. We will probably never get any black votes. Just the way it is.
Trouble is most immigrants are dirt poor and very susceptible to redistribution. Until they have enough wealth of their own to protect, they won’t listen.
If someone else has better ideas I’m more than willing to listen.
Liberty is non-negotiable. period.
we will never surrender. get out boehner, you don’t represent me, my wife or my family.
and another thing. abortion is the law of the land but not on my dime. get an abortion whenever you want for whatever reason you want but get someone other than me to pay for it. i will not willing allow my hands to be bloodied.
say it loud and proud. I am a Extremist Pro-Lifer!
Let them call me a Extremist Pro-Lifer!
over and over and over.
just like the called me a Tea Party Racist (cleaning up the language).
over and over and over.
Let them call me these things over and over and over.
and the term, like racist, will gradually lose it’s meaning just like fatigued metal.
Mark Levin for president.
“The birth control issue”
Rush seemed to just jokingly bring this up. everyone of us knows this was just a farce issue to distract voters away from obama. Rush knows this, we know this, just morons that want to save 10 dollars a month don’t. It is stunning something so minor becomes such a hot issue. Romney had it right in a lot of ways. obama’s campaign was about a lot of small things.
I never wanted Romney to be the nominee, but he was. I thought he was impressive. He really gave me the really that the economy was going to be much healthier in the next 2 years. I think he was fighting the criminal media, unrelenting voter fraud, and some of his best allies (Christie) were really his worst enemies.
Thanks - that brought a lump to my throat and a little water to the corner of my eye.
I needed that after Tuesday’s results.
Well, let's name names. Who are some of the Freepers dishing out this kind of "crap" that Levin references?
Freepers like: onthelookout777; Emperor Palpatine; Mkjessup; Publana; Dave W; GlocktheVote; Aquila48; Nicmarlo; Zulu; Aemilius Paulus; No Dems... For exact quotes, see below...
* As you know, the conservative purists who refuse to vote for Romney/Ryan are just enabling Obama. [Onthelookout777, Post #47 (Nov. 2, 2012)]
* Wait til the usual suspects show up. You know - that group of a dozen or so vapid Romney haters who plug losers like Johnson or Goode and would rather have Zero win because God needs to punish America for her sins. The sanctimonious purists. [Emperor Palpatine, Post #5 (Oct.7, 2012)]...See also Oct. 3, post 27 here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2939586/posts
* The only voters who won't be pulling the lever for Romney & Ryan are of course the bought and paid for zombies who are on the dole from the government in addition to the holier-than-thou ideological conservative purists who would rather see another 4 years of that filthy Kenyan Communist, than to vote for Romney & Ryan. [Mkjessup, Post #15 (Sept. 18, 2012)]
* They arent kneeling at the feet of Obama. They are the holier-than-thou purists that refuse to vote for Romney, thus are complicit in destroying the very Country they profess to love. Imbeciles and traitors all. [Publana, Post #46 (Sept. 17, 2012)]
* Sounds like then-Governor Romney was having to deal with the gay mafia kinda like the same way we realists are having to deal with the conservative purists who would rather see 0bama get 4 more years than to pull the lever for Romney & Ryan. Post #3 (Sept. 12, 2012)]
* Purists make me barf. [Dave W, Post #8 (Sept. 8, 2012)]
* Exactly - the purists who rather obama get 4 more years than try something different in the name of so called principle. A bunch of a delusional sickos. [GlocktheVote, Post #50 (Sept. 5, 2012)]
* Exactamundo - the purists would have us wait until our messiah comes around - at which point we will have been in hell for a century. Im satisfied with one step at a time - as long as its in the right direction. Romney/Ryan may not be our messiah but theyre one step in the right direction. (Aquila48, Post #7 (Sept. 1, 2012)]
* I wrote the following, in part, with you (and your fellow drones) in mind. I'm disgusted and, frankly, embarrassed, of your professions of "Christianity," for you are NOT representative of what true Christianity is about in spirit, demeanor, behavior, or attitude. After reading too many posts by those in FR who profess to be 'purists' in Christian theology and "conservative" political ideology, I am disappointed. [NicMarlo, Post #235 (Aug. 28, 2012)]
* So stay home and pout and watch all my predictions come true when Obama gets elected, because purists like you pull off the same tactics you were so successful at in 2008 and 2006!! (Zulu, Post #87 (Aug. 26, 2012)]
* Statement: "Conservative expert purists have to recognize people are voting AGAINST Obama not FOR Romney" Response: Agreed. [Aemilius Paulus, Post #23 (July 5, 2012)]
* ...there are the Conservative purists, who hate Romney and wont vote. [no dems, Post #8 (July 5, 2012)]
Best responses to one of above --
#1...from FieldMarshaldj (to Dave W):
#2 From Yosemitetest: Post #19 (Sept. 22, 2012), citing a Jack Kerwick article excerpt...
Both of these criticisms are, at best, misplaced; at worst, they are just disingenuous.
At any rate, they are easily answerable.
Lets begin with the argument against purism. To this line, two replies are in the coming.
As for the second objection against the Tea Partiers rejection of those Republican candidates who eschew his values and convictions,
it can be dispensed with just as effortlessly as the first.
Every election seasonand at no time more so than this past seasonRepublicans pledge to reform Washington, trim down the federal government, and so forth.
Once, however, they get elected and they conduct themselves with none of the confidence and enthusiasm with which they expressed themselves on the campaign trail,
those who placed them in office are treated to one lecture after the other on the need for compromise and patience.
Well, when the Tea Partiers impatience with establishment Republican candidates intimates a Democratic victory,
he can use this same line of reasoning against his Republican critics.
My dislike for the Democratic Party is second to none, he can insist.
But in order to advance in the long run my conservative or Constitutionalist values, it may be necessary to compromise some in the short term.
“Well, let’s name names. Who are some of the Freepers dishing out this kind of “crap” that Levin references?”
Speaking of crap, you Colonfornian are the asshole extruding crap.
I backed Romney for the general election JUST LIKE LEVIN DID because I did not want another 4 years of Obama (this time unleashed).
The people I was calling “purists” were morons like you, who even in the general election would not vote for Romney.
Yep. I’ve seen a lot of this on FR today from our in-house squishy moderate ABO crowd.
One of them got so frustrated he called me a Christian.
You’re right, you’re not a purist... you’re a PURE IDIOT.
I bet anything you’re also one of those holier-than-thou “Christians” always ready to cast the first stone. You do realize that Jesus is not going to look too kindly at that.
(You’re the one casting all types of name-calling ‘stones’...three of them now in two posts...you just convicted yourself...but I invite you...more names, please...wanna make sure all of the “pseudo conservatives” out themselves pure Mark Levin’s comments!)
It’s the first stone that counts - and YOU threw it.
You know nothing about the people you directly insulted by name with your post, yet you had no qualms about gloatingly judging us and insulting us. You should be ashamed.
I saw that last night, I cannot believe that Hannity would have her, OF ALL PEOPLE, on his show first. I’m done with him, and she has been on my crap list for a long time.
Hannity was great. You could tell how heartsick he was about the election.
Poor guy. He worked so hard to expose Obama.
I suggest you go look at the show's transcript which I quoted directly from. He was not joking.
The whole process starts with the media. Fox is a decent start but only a small % of the people will ever see it.
Until we can get access to the MSM we are sunk.
What do we do with America now???
The problem is that conservatives are apathetic wimps, cowards who cringe at the thought of getting off their asses and fighting.
There is another, larger detrimental characteristic, lack of personal responsibility. there is a tendency to pray and then think I have done my duty. God will sort it out.
Yep. Say what you want about the Marxist party, they knew how to do it and slowly and quietly went about putting the chess pieces in place. It took decades for them, but now they have us in "Check". Obama is the culmination of a very patient socialist movement just waiting to say "Checkmate".
We need to:
1) Boycott MSM news / news talk show advertisers.
2) NEVER watch non-Fox/Beck on cable, even out of curiosity.
3) Watch only Fox and the Blaze TV --preferably the Blaze TV.
I showed up and voted. Don’t blame me.
Unfortunately, I do not see how that can be changed any time soon, and time is something we ran out of 4 years ago.
I honestly do not see how a conservative can win in the next 10 years or so. The socialists have a total grip on most of the media and that is the ONLY reason Obama won. Pure 100% relentless propaganda blasted into 80% of the country's subconscience 24 hours a day. They know that they do not have to infect ALL the people, just the majority, and right now they do.
There used to be a saying: "Conservatives search for converts. Liberals hunt for heretics." You never hear that anymore. And for good reason. If conservatism is going to have a successful future in electoral politics at the national level, two things that we will have to do are:
1. Acknowledge that there will disagreements among conservatives, agree to disagree agreeably, and stop this BS of heretic hunting, where folks proclaim that the path to success is to expel from the movement everyone who disagrees with them.
2. Expand our base by searching for converts. Not by outbidding the left in pandering, but by convincing people that they, and their families, will be better off under conservative policies. Given the left's control of education, the news media, and entertainment, that will be a long, hard process. Of course, since BO has a second term in which to destroy the economy, we may have a target rich environment in the next couple of election cycles.
