Fox won't give Obama a break for even one day. While he was celebrating the start of his second term as President, Fox Nation was displaying this as its lead post: “Mark Levin’s Inaugural Day Message… FIGHT!” The post linked to an interminable interview, re-posted from breitbart.com, in which right-wing rantmeister Levin invoked a future America bowing under the yoke of tyranny, slammed Obama for dragging us toward this doomsday, and slammed moderate Republicans for letting him do it.
Levin shrank with horror at the Obama agenda of “gun control; attacks on the First Amendment such as religious liberty; amnesty for illegal aliens; union expansion; institutionalizing Obamacare; institutionalizing voter corruption; de-industrialization via the EPA; destroying the capitalist-based economy via tax increases, smothering regulations, massive deficit spending, and endless borrowing; and hollowing out our military; etc.” (Did he leave anything out? Replacing the Bible with the Quran, maybe?)
How to fight that agenda? Not with the current Republican Party leadership, which Levin calls “tired, old, almost decrepit, full of cowardice and vision-less... Conservatives, constitutionalists, and tea party activists” he says, “…are the only people left standing for liberty against tyranny in this country." Levin wants the conservatives to retake the GOP, clean out the old guard and “install.. fresh, bold, articulate, knowledgeable, confident, courageous conservatives.” (Like Reagan.)
The country rests on the blade of a knife right now, says Levin. “We have a government with so much power, a government so ubiquitous, a government so cancerous in its growth and so exponential in its expanse, that I cannot conceal my great fear for the future of this country (does he get paid by the word? We wonders, yes we wonders.) … The question is whether we will be a free and prosperous people or just another miserable place where rights are denied and needs are scarce and distributed by the government. I believe knowing the perilous state of the nation, and not pretending otherwise, and knowing that only we conservatives have any hope of stemming this tide and gradually reversing course, we will fight this in every legitimate way we can. And hopefully our already significant ranks will grow. We have no choice but to stand and fight. Everything is at stake."
His call to arms sure resonated with some Nation readers:
BTW, Levin's been around Fox and Fox Nation quite a lot lately. I wonder if many Fox readers feel as this reader of the original breitbart.com article does.
Mark Levin an intellectual beacon!? I need an aperitif!
Tea baggers, repukelicans, wake up, you lost, you got slaughtered in the election, the people have spoken, assholes like McConnel, bad luck, you did not make President Obama a one term president. Now you are going to have to live with it, sensible legislation may now commence. Hallelujah!

He’s so far off the wall he cannot but cause the less brainwashed among the faithful to reflect on what he actually says.
Ranting is works only on the already converted. For others, it is rather more boring than convincing. There’s not much that is thoughtful in a rant.
“The right is not quite out of steam, but clearly out of power. "
Dear Ed: always keep this in mind: as long as the right has LOTS OF $$$$ in their arsenal — especially the Koch brothers and Herr Goebbels II (i.e. Rupert Murdoch), they will NEVER, EVER run out of steam.
Oh, absolutely! And just don’t let that teensy little thing like that he’s totally out of his fucking mind bother you.
Anyway, the piece was written several months ago considering the presence of several out-dated references (e.g. the “coming fiscal cliff” has been and gone). I expect we’ll see the same piece (word for word) again before long. The laddie who called himself Steve Call posted the same rant three times before giving up. Methinks I’ve finally understood the full meaning of the term “troll turd droppings”.
The right continues its headlong flight from reality, trying to preserve their blend of angry, self righteousness means the rhetoric can’t be any less insane today than yesterday’s. And yesterday’s rhetoric lost them the election. Keep screaming Levin. It’s all you have left.
1 – Slack off and let America come under attack on 9/11
2 – Sidetrack nation with endless war
3 – Wait for note from Cheny stating he’s made his fortune.
4 – Prime financial crisis before leaving office.
5 – Always remember, We The People have short memories.
What is he in height? 5 foot-nothing?
Is he the recinarnation of Napoleon Bonaparte? You go ahead little one. Have others do your fighting for you, which is the way you chickenhawks do your fighting. What a joke he is.
He’s a nut case, perfect for controlling the easy to push around ditto-head conservatives.
