MARK LEVIN torches NRO over Palin cheap shots
The Right Scoop ^ | April 28, 2014 | Mark Levin, viaThe Right Scoop

Posted on 04/29/2014 2:49:26 AM PDT by Timber Rattler

Mark Levin went after NRO writer Patrick Brennan for taking cheap shots at Sarah Palin over her NRA speech this weekend.

(snip)

Levin points out that Sarah Palin is out there “breaking her neck trying to get conservatives elected and trying to keep the base strong” and she’s dismissed by people on “our side.”

“This is how “our side” treats “our side,”” Levin adds. “You’ll never seen the left or Democrats do that to a woman on their side ever!”

So you’d rather that Mark let them get away with their backstabbing?

If Palin or Cruz run... boom, instant maximum contribution from me. Who has never given politically before.

My side is "we the people". The FedGov side of Beltway insiders is not my side, at least not to the extent that they support ObamaCare, Amnesty, or other big government policies that harm We the People and violate the Constitution of the United States. Sarah Palin stands for freedom and individual liberty, and RINOs are exactly like Obama voters in the sense that they hate those concepts.

I have always supported Palin, but her attacking Christianity and saying what she did put her in league with secular leftists. I hope she rethinks this direction.

You mean the quip about “baptizing” terrorists?

I aver this needs to be viewed in the context of accusations that the “religious Right” is wanting to “impose Christianity on the world by force.” Which it is not, or at least ought not, because that is never how the kingdom of God advances. She’s kidding about “baptism” here, as though it needed spelling out. It does not cease to mean what it always meant.

Don't put words in my mouth...I hope he browbeats the hell out of them...however; the GOP-e is NOT on 'our side'...they are DEMOCRATS (for all intents and purposes) in Republican clothing...they laugh behind the backs of conservatives.

Since Mr Buckley’s Day, NR has gone downhill quite a bit. Like the GOPe they are embarrassed by social conservatives.

Patrick Brennan also works as a part-time assistant for Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan.
And like Jason Lee Steorts, is another pseudo-right "pajama boy".

So true. They look at conservatives as a bunch of rubes and simpletons not to be associated with. The GOPe wants to sit at the cool kids table and be part of the cool crowd with the liberals. We’ve always been hated by the establishment and since Palin is one of the most vocal and visible conservatives they will attack her with full fury.

So you never heard of a baptism of fire? Sheesh.

Nothing she said was sacrilegious unless you’re completely humorless.

"...attacking Christianity and saying what she did..."

Disagree.
The term "baptism", in Christian parlance means an outward sign of an inward grace, but in generic terms simply means: "a trying or purifying experience or initiation", (like "baptism under fire").
I think Sarah Palin knows the difference, and most of us should, too.

I assume her comment equating waterboarding with baptism.

I support her politics also, but this woman’s never been ready for “prime time” and never will be. Way to much vanity and cult following.

Good, then don’t vote for someone who will let every American have the freedom to worship (or not worship) as they wish.

When we become a Communist state you will certainly regret the choices you made based upon your beliefs...for freedom of speech and religion will be gone.

people should lay off the man made religion and pick up a Bible.

Most would be shocked to know what the Bible actually says baptism and that it doesn’t always involve water.

So Palin’s extraordinary record of achievements and her unrelenting loyalty to the Constitution & fighting to keep us free is irrelevant?

You sound like a typical leftwing kook who hates anyone who is accomplished and respects the Constitution!

Heh! Yeah, and support amnesty as an "act of love" like that nice Mr. Jeb. Then she'll be declared things like "evolved"; "ready"; and maybe even [gasp] be acceptable to the PDS crowd that posts on every Palin thread... (rolls eyes)

The word “baptism” is often used allegorically. I hate this modern left/right idea that some words are verboten. Outside of vile language, used to frighten, degrade and intimidate, or yelling “fire!” in a theater, I think all words should be on the table.

Ping to Sarah's Awesome List!

Levin points out that Sarah Palin is out there “breaking her neck trying to get conservatives elected and trying to keep the base strong” and she’s dismissed by people on “our side.”

“This is how “our side” treats “our side,”” Levin adds. “You’ll never seen the left or Democrats do that to a woman on their side ever!”

I bet several who are offended by her using the word baptism regularly throw “F” word and probably in public where my kids can hear.

But hey whatever.

Hmmm. Let’s see...first you say “I’ve always supported ____, but”

Then you make a false statement about her.

Finally, you connect/compare her with an undesirable group.

When was the last time you got offended when someone said baptize by fire? Perhaps that doesn’t count since Sarah hasn’t said it yet for you to get offended!

Spot on, KC! Dims NEVER attack other Dims.

The problem we’re facing is that Repub RINO’s and Repub Conservatives are no longer of the same party.

RINO’s defend Dims/0bama over defending Conservatives. That tells me all I need to know, anymore.

You some of the operatives of the Uniparty come out of the woodwork whenever Sarah is in the News.

Sometimes, I feel like they've kidnapped FR. Other times, I take heart because of the few FReepers who stand against them. I try not to forget that there are many who are reading FR often but rarely if ever post here. They can see what's true and what is bluster.
