FASCISM: Mark Levin says a powerful Republican Congressman trying to silence his show.
The Right Scoop ^ | 4/12/13 | Mark Levin

Posted on 04/14/2013 1:41:19 PM PDT by gonzo

Mark Levin opened his show tonight saying that a certain Republican Congressman who doesn’t like what he’s saying is trying to get the local affiliate in their district to stop running the Mark Levin Show. And apparently they are trying to do it behind the scenes. But Levin says EVERYTHING gets back to him and he will not tolerate fascism.

He shouldn’t wait, he should name him.

C’mon Levin: Expose the enemy or be their ally.

we can all make educated guesses.

Congressman = senator or representative

Collins, McCain, Graham, Portman, Boner, Cantor, McCarthy, Rubio.

Not Boehner b/c Levin posted on his Facebook page: “It’s NOT Boehner.”

Mark would’ve said “Senator” if it had been one, such as McCain is.

On another thread they were saying telltale signs pointed to it being NY’s Peter King.

In the tape, Levin refers to the CongressCritter’s “district”

That makes me lean more toward a representative as opposed to a senator.

In any case, the times I’ve heard him talk about Rubio, he has remained supportive. Wonder if that will change next week.

Listening to Mark state, "taking committeeships, money for their districts, TEA Party freshmen....." It can only be one of three or really two people: Boehner or Cantor and it sounds like both!

Not sure how strong the radio slot is in Ohio but I can guarantee you Mark's show is big in DC area!

Outside chance it's McCarthy but don't think he has the clout to pull off some of the things Levin was speaking about doing to various congressmen that stand up against leadership.

http://www.courageinamerica.com/2013/04/mark-levin-fascist-gop-congressman-is.html

On his Friday show, syndicated talk show host Mark Levin said that a Republican congressman is attempting to persuade one of his affiliates to remove his show from the airwaves.

Although Levin would not offer the congressman’s name on air, he has been a vocal critic of various members of the House Republican leadership in the past. But Levin called the situation “fascism.”

“Well, it has come to my attention that there is a Republican congressman out there who doesn’t like what I’ve been saying,” Levin said. “It has come to my attention that there is a Republican congressman out there, a fairly powerful one, who doesn’t like what I’m saying about him. And you know what this Republican congressman wants to do about it, Mr. Producer? He wants our major affiliate in his district where my program is heard to remove my show. This Republican congressman, who is fairly powerful, is sliming around in the background, in the shadows trying to get my show removed from one of the major radio stations in his district. Know what they call that, Mr. Producer? They call that fascism.”

Mark is very precise. If this person was a Senator, Mark would say “Senator”.

While a Senator is in Congress, he is not called Congressman. He or she just is not called that. He or she is called a Senator.

On another thread about this the consensus was Peter King of NY.

I think the station in question was WABC in NY.

That was a few days ago so something else might have broken about it since then, so I’m not claiming certainty.

Levin will likley just say on Rubio how he has supported Rubio since day 1 and how he doesn't have agree with him on "every issue"....thus blowing off these important positions like he does with Paul Ryan.

Then on less imoportant matters if a Newt Gingrich says he doesn't care if Cristey Cream goes to CPAC, he'll get really offended and put Newt on blast and make a commericaial out of it.

Oh; yes to the problem of the seemingly; never ending Repub problem. As per 'powerful' - compared to those 'less powerful' in Repub Party; perhaps(?); but why does not Mark, just give his name up. Best safety is exposure; no? Has Rush too; been 'made aware' of such moves against him by same Senator?

If more of these so-called 'powerful'Repjbs were not intimidated by the Left - and just tuned in; they might learn something.

A truly stupid effort on behalf of this Repub. Perhaps he should just listen to Mark; and maybe 'get it'; and actually rep some success for our Party.

“He’s a Senator.”

Congressman = A member of a congress, esp. of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Although he’s a Senator, McCain is still a member of Congress. Although I agree “Congressman” is usually used to mean members of the House.

Levin might have avoided saying “Senator” b/c he’s trying not to identify the RINO..... yet.

I’ve noticed that as well.

Don’t get me wrong...I really like Levin. He offers a lot of history and Constitutional perspective. He’s about the only talk show I still listen to. But even he sometimes wears me out.

I sadly must agree. Like I have already said..I like Levin. But he is an entertainer with ratings to consider. I keep that in mind at all times.

Mark Levin whines far too much on the air and is depressed/depressing. Rush Limbaugh, on the other hand, is entertaining and uplifting, even when delivering bad news. Levin is a solid conservative and my criticism is limited to how he sounds on air.

I agree. Mark Levin has been depressing me lately.

He needs to have more fun humorously mocking the Marxist clowns.

Hitting the reality of how terrible they are, hour after hour, is 100% valid yet discouraging.

Mix it up, Levin!

Levin’s voice sure ain’t the best, I agree. His content is usually pretty good. It’s kind of amazing that he has made it as big in radio as he has.

But I listen to him...don’t always agree, but still listen. He’s smart.

I don’t know. Mark’s show got dropped here in Springfield a while back, and the Wall Street Journal folks who took the slot were bragging on how much less contentious they were. I know there’s a good market for him here in Central Illinois, so political correctness (aka fascism) at the stations could be costing him some market share, and he might be keeping his ear to the ground. I know I would if it were me.
