Skip to comments.Radio’s Mark Levin Might Be the Most Powerful Conservative You Never Heard Of
Posted on 10/19/2013 7:58:36 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Last weekend, at a dusty race car track in that part of New Jersey where lacrosse fields slowly give way to farmland before the landscape seems to stop altogether, Sarah Palin rallied a couple of thousand partisans on behalf of Steve Lonegan, a longshot, Tea Party-fueled candidate for the U.S. Senate.
I just told Todd, she said to the crowd a moment after they stopped chanting her name. Ooh, I said. I can die and go to heaven now: I just shook Mark Levins hand.
Levin had been out earlier, warming them up. He cuts a figure that is the exact opposite of the Grizzly Mama, with her low cut red shirt and stemwinders about a Revolutionary War fightress swabbin and loadin, swabbin and loadin a cannon even as the red coats knocked her bonnet off. Hunched over the podium wearing a blue baseball hat, he is more like the uncle you are reminded not to talk politics with at Thanksgiving.
Mr. President, open our damn memorials! Mr. President, this country doesnt belong to youit belongs to us! Mr. President, this government doesnt belong to youit belongs to us!
The crowd, almost entirely white, in ill-fitting jeans and sweatshirts, and in some cases wearing literal hard hats, as if to culled from a central casting call for blue collar, chant Levins name and wave copies of his book like holy rollers at a tent revival....

What kind of guy notices this crap?
An elitist snob? First time he probably ever got close to working people.
Using terms like "dusty race car track" and " that part of NJ where lacrosse fields slowly give way to farmland before the landscape seems to stop altogether", author David Freelander tries to minimize the appeal of Levin, Palin and Lonegan.
Meanwhile the reality is that unabashed conservative Seve Lonegan, without the help of his own party, who spent very little money on his campaign and who was trashed incessantly by the media, received 44.5% of the vote in what has been deep blue NJ.
Author David Freelander is scared.
Might as well hang a sign around his neck that says “Kick my ass, please.”
Interesting, that leftist types regard Rachel Maddow, Ed Schulz, Lawrence O’Donnell, Chris Mathews, etc. as household words. Yet they have no idea who Mark Levin is??? Really??? These leftists would probably be shocked if we said we don’t know who Rachel Maddow is.
Even if you don’t care for his style or his views, it does seem odd that people don’t know who he is. He has written a few New York Times best selling books. Yet these liberals honestly have no clue who he is???
Very good article. This guy doesn’t doubt his sincerity or his influence.
Maybe the left will wake up and start noticing these ideas. I know more than a few people who, once they started looking into things, realized a thing or two.
More articles like this will help.
Ah, yes. Rural New Jersey. So close to Manhattan and yet so far. And oh, those disgusting peasants that inhabit that place. /sarc
Levin is the best-kept secret on talk radio. Smart as heck, not flashy, and doesn’t hold back. He has real appeal to blue-collar Reagan Dems who now see how much O has really screwed them.
In the next year he will likely be a household name everywhere.
It cracks me up when he says to a caller, “Sir, are you a lib?”
Hardly the stuff of "irrelevance"...
El Rushbo used to refer to him as:”F.Lee Levin;Chief Legal-Counsel For The EIB”!Anyone who hasn’t heard of him(or HEARD him)Can Get The Hell Out Of MY COUNTRY Sometime YESTERDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Boy, the left certainly gets all puritanical when the beauteous babe, the Divine Sarah, shows up in her low cut red blouse or tight-fitting tee. Take it to ‘em, Sarah, those metrosexuals are so afraid of a sexy conservative!
Rush has taken him places on his private jet.
So THAT’s who that was.
I had assumed it was a fictional person whose named spelled “flea” like it was an inside joke or something.
Mark: I think that what is threatening society is the lack of appreciation for mans nature.”
THAT is what distinguishes government today from the plan of our Framers.
I’ve never understood why the liberals have jumped on the fact that she resigned as governor of Alaska as some liability, lack of character, lack of leadership, etc.
It was okay to the liberals that many fellow liberals, such as Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, John Kerry, and others, to resign offices to which they had been elected. In their cases, they were going on to other offices, so perhaps that’s what has the liberals panties in a twist about this. Sarah Palin did not resign to take another governmental office. And for this she is pilloried.
Then again, these liberals look to government as the be all and end all of their lives. Sarah Palin represents people who do NOT have to be in some government job or elective office to make a difference in the world.
You mean: what kind of guy makes up this crap.
Did anyone notice how badly written this is and how many typos and word omissions? This from hoity-toity Tina Brown?
I’ve also never understood the liberal uproar over the fact that Sarah Palin’s daughter had a baby out of wedlock.
Liberals tend to be non-judgemental about these situations, and decry those with allegedly puritanical attitudes about the subject. Yet Sarah Palin was attacked for not being the best mother because of her daughter. I don’t understand the liberal thought process.
Off topic, but just want to add, that when he had his show, liberal firebrand Keith Olbermann named Bristol Palin the worst person in the world. Her crime was having the baby out of wedlock, then working and getting paid by an organization which works to prevent teen pregnancy.
That always got me, because certainly nobody would criticize an alcoholic, or a drug addict, for example, for working to persuade others to avoid the issues they have faced with their alcohol or drug problems. Yet Bristol Palin was targeted because she wanted to help other young girls avoid what she had gone through.
Sarah Palin is strikingly attractive in my opinion.
I think it’s strange, that in general, conservative women politicians tend to be attractive, while liberal women politicians tend not to be attractive. Just an observation. No, I would never say anything like this about a man politician, but, the world does tend to notice the appearance of women moreso than men.
meanwhile most unaborted babies born in the black community are all bastards.
Did you catch that remark about how “landscape seems to stop”??? Did the “author” run into a brick wall or does he believe that the world ends at the horizon?
I think the problem with liberal women in politics is that so many of them are lesbian. Lesbians distain good looks. In the 1980s, there was a trend in NYC for “lipstick” lesbians - young attractive women - but that died a quick death. Conservative women are still attracted to the old values - and feminine beauty is a very old - very powerful - value.
Nobody? Imagine if Rush Limbaugh counseled people after his own pill problem. The left would explode in anger.
I think he's using the New Yorker's famous map of the United States.
Judging from his google pictures, a queer.
I think you’re on to something there. I would add that most conservative women are happy (even though many may have many problems), content with who they are, and believe in family values, Christian and Judeo faith, the Constitution,telling the truth and living their lives accordingly. Many liberal women, Hillary!, Debbie Blabbermouth Scultz, Maxine Waters, and I could go on w many of the lib congresswomen, don’t particularly like who they are (though they put up a good front), spew hatred and lies until they don’t know what is a lie and what is the truth, and don’t particularly like the Constitution (a living - breathing document) or America. They don’t understand God, inalienable rights, love of country, nor us “gun-loving, liberty-loving, American-value loving, bible-thumpers that do.
I don’t think that this is a woman-only thing. Ted Cruz v.s. BHO, Mike Lee v.s. Dingy Harry, Jeff Sessions v.s. Chuckie Schumer, Ed Shultz v.s. Rush (teddy-bear) Limbaugh, etc., etc.
Yes, I think you said it well. Conservative women are grounded. They value America which makes them at home in their own country. Imagine always being at war with your country! What a terrible existence.
Mr Freedlander seems to be more bitchy on the subject of other people’s choice of clothing than the average heterosexual man is. Just saying.
Mr. Freedlander, get thee an editor. Gee! Is this the best a leftist publication can do?
The Daily Beast is the shell of the old newsweekly Newsweek. I doubt if they can afford real editors, in the old sense of the word.
Levin explains the Constitution to his listeners, and he never talks down to them.
He’s humble, but passionate in the defense of liberty.
What’s not to like about a guy like that?
Can you imagine?
That photo warms my heart.
Can you hear me now you smuck?
This would be a good time to post the Obams mom jeans picture!
So now they get ready to attack Levin. Now that will be a popcorn worthy bit of entertainment.
self evident question
The week before his appearance with Sarah in New Jersey, on air, TLevin plugged freerepublic... refering to FR as, “our good old friends at freerepublic... it’s an excellent website”.
If that is not a worthwhile testimonial, I really can’t say one exists.
except of course the overall snarky tone....
This writer is seriously looking down his nose at the ‘lower class’ and asking his readers to join him. The truth is he is not writing to inform but rather to provide drawing room amusement to his compatriots.
He and his buddies will learn nothing from these articles or additional exposure (kind of like pickles....)
Mine too! I love them both!
They should have their own show on Fox.
