On yesterday’s Your World, Neil Cavuto brought back Mark Levin to attack Chief Justice Roberts comment on a report that Chief Justice John Roberts switched his vote on health care reform. Cavuto deliberately opened the floodgates by asking Levin, “You haven’t cooled down yet, have you?”
No, he hadn’t. Levin said, it’s “because the Constitution, Neil, is the difference between a civilized society that preserves individual sovereignty and tyranny… and we have a Chief Justice in the United States who abandons principle and, frankly, abandons the Constitution and rewrites it and rewrites it as if he’s a one-man Constitutional convention. That’s tyranny, it’s flat-out tyranny.”
Cavuto suggested an explanation. “The Court might be more focused on optics than we know.”
Levin blamed Roberts. “Kennedy was focused on the Constitution, and I think the Chief was focused on optics.” He said “every indication is” the four dissenters “were furious with Roberts because I think they thought he was playing the optics and he was.”
Later, Levin said, “This is why the Court doesn’t deserve the reverence that it gets… There are many, many cases in our history: Dred Scott promoting slavery; Plessy upholding segregation; Korematsu upholding FDR’s internment of Japanese Americans; Roe v. Wade and others where the Court has done terrible, terrible things. It’s done very good things, too. But it does not deserve the reverence that we give it, and John Roberts has demonstrated exactly why. He went political, he went towards self promotion, he wants his image to be positioned in a certain way... This is the most reckless, activist decision… since Roe v. Wade.”
Cavuto also suggested that “Maybe Roberts is being clever by a factor and a half here, that he might be throwing it back in Republicans’ laps, in Congress it could be a galvanizing issue for them.”
“If that’s his position, he should either resign or be impeached,” Levin said.
Far from being aghast at such over-the-top attacks on the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, Cavuto seemed to endorse them. “Mark Levin, always good chatting with you my friend,” he said as the discussion closed.
Does anyone really believe that this parolee from Munchkin Land has any relevance at all?
Just fuck him and his ridiculous hatred.
