MARK LEVIN: You know folks, I'll be honest with you. I just told a friend of mine -- even though I sit behind this microphone and I try to be civil and so forth -- I can barely contain my fury about what's going on in this country. I'm just being honest with you. I can barely contain it. I'm so frustrated by this tyranny, you have no idea. Now we can analyze it, we can intellectualize it, we can parse it and so forth and try to unravel it. But I'm just telling you, from an emotional point of view, it is just so damned infuriating to see the greatest country on the face of the earth run by a bunch of lilliputians, who are constantly attacking it from within.


where was this 'fury' when the patriot act somehow got passed into law?  where was this fury when the war on drugs destroyed our 4th and 5th amendment rights?  where was this fury when cops beat the snot outta OWS for asking QUESTIONS!?

yeah.  that's what I thought.  STFU.  you aren't furious.  you're a whiny biatch looking for a quick pay day off the fears of disillusioned GOP voters.

I can barely contain my fury either. Because a nutball walked into a school and murdered two dozen people using a rifle with a pointlessly large magazine that has no practical civilian application, this was not a completely unique situation, and we're talking about farking violent video games again because one side of the discussion is made up of pointless, selfish, evil juveniles who are afwaid the big bad bwown man gonna take awwwwww their toys away. And we concede more ground to evil because free speech doesn't have a toyline made by powerful backers.

Yes, evil. Yes, you. If you are arguing against any sort of improvements to gun control and are even against restricting the size of magazines, you are evil. If you're arguing that violent video games are the problem, you're either even more evil, extraordinarily stupid, intellectually dishonest to a stunning degree, or possibly all three. If you're just posting these things because somebody pays you to, you are in the service of evil and children will continue to die because you are aiding evil.

I'm tired of watching us concede ground to petulant children just so a bunch of well-fed assholes can keep their cushy government jobs. Enough.

He, everyone, we've got a "special" one here. Put away any sharp objects you're not actually using at the moment.

If you come up with the best plan you could to try to save innocent life and ensure good people can exercise their right to choose how to protect themselves and innocents will still die. We allow cars to go faster than the speed limit and innocents die. We allow bars to serve more than enough liquor to intoxicate a person and drunk driving deaths and abuse happens. If you were king of the world what would your policy be?

There are many smart and good-hearted people who don't share your views on controvesial issues. Deep down, they are as sure that their opinon is the right one as you.

You people just don't understand. The purpose of the 2nd amendment is to ensure the citizenry have the power to overthrow a tyrannical government. Which is why I hope conservative pundits like Mr. Levin and 2nd amendment lobbing organizations like the NRA will join my crusade to end the prohibition on citizens owning heavy arms like anti-tank missiles and SAMs. After all unless the populace has access to any and all military grade weaponry the true purpose of the 2nd amendment remains unfulfilled. It says the right to bear arms, not the right to bear only small arms.

You know I'm not really that old, just shy of 30. But I never thought in my life that democrats would actually be the party of consistency. And by no means are democrats in lockstep on various issues. But at least most individuals on the left in this country base their views on the facts and the context of an event. Those views don't change based which way the wind is blowing. On the right it seems like positions are based more on what the proposition of the other side is and how can we differentiate our selves from it.


Republicans are basically contrarians whenever the other side is in power. The specific issue does not really matter anymore. Things they vehemently supported just a few years ago are now terrible godless socialist ideas.

Like really over emphasizing the Hussein. Like it was a curse word or something. Was bizarre. Like the dude got his name as part of a kenyan muslin conspiracy as a code word for sharia law and not from his parents who actually named him the way most normal people get named, not foreseeing that instead of a common harmless traditional Arabic name, and also his father's middle name, that instead it would be seen as a reference to terrorism by xenophobic retards who think any muslin sounding word must mean something nefarious.

Now, why would we need a national gun database? Well, listen, we need to know who has the weapons, at all times, and how many weapons they have and what weapons they have. How come? Why? The guy that killed all those people in Newtown, Connecticut, we know who he was and we know who had the weapons, his mother. So what does this national database have to do with anything? Nothing.

Maybe if there'd been a database that listed that she owned these guns, a red flag would have come up when her son tried to buy firearms (and failed), and someone would have approached her and said, Hey, we know you're having serious problems with your son. Maybe you should remove all those guns from your house and keep them in a locker somewhere, or give them to someone to hold for you, just in case. And maybe, just maybe, if someone had spoken to her, she would have realized that it was stupid of her to keep guns like that in the same place with a person that she was afraid of.

It probably wouldn't happen like that, but what's wrong with a system of knowing who owns the guns? Do guns owners have something to hide? If you're not doing anything wrong......

It's just a farking possession, wingnuts. It's not your gateway to a secret society of Ultra-Men.

Stupid hyperbolic argument is stupid.

We have backyard pools here, but we have laws that state that they need to be enclosed so that children don't accidently fall into them and drown.

We have cars, but we have laws about how fast you can go and how you can drive them (and not drinking while driving) so that people are not needlessly killed.

Whilst doubtlessly a gun ban is the most effective way to reduce gun violence, what is being discussed is merely regulation, like the above examples, in order to reduce gun violence.

This is sensible. Your inability to see this makes you a moron. Good luck with that, and in life in general.

He's giving a sermon, after every crescendo of sound and fury to make his audience panic about Obama he suddenly switches into a calming voice where he explains how he has a path that will save them from the impending doom.

skylabdown: Yeah, it's really shocking when people get mad when others attempt to deny them their inalienable rights.


Ok I'll bite. Which of your inalienable rights is about to be taken away and who is taking them?

Tor_Eckman: Bigdogdaddy: I hate to say this, but a lot of dems (including myself) agree with what he just said. I hate the "impeach" crap that comes out every few months, but if Obama makes law with his "executive order" then he should be impeached, convicted and thrown the hell out. To use an executive order to strengthen a law is one thing. To override the constitution is another. Enough is enough.

What "law" is he going to make with "his executive order" that is going to "override the constitution"?


More appropriately - what high crime or misdemeanor did he commit?

There's a reason we have courts. There's a reason people have the right to ask the government for a redress of grievances. The constitution itself gives an appropriate way for disagreements as to the scope of government power and constitutional rights to be handled without needing to yell "OMG IMPEACH!"

No one rioted when GHW Bush used executive authority to ban a whole pile of firearms. Why care now? No one rioted when Reagan banned open carry in CA to keep black people from walking around with guns, why care now?

If these types are going to be all worked up over gun rights, they should be consistent.

mittromneysdog: Gun advocates call a gun registry "tyranny," but have no problem, none, with a human beings who have committed no crimes registry.


To be fair, there already is a federal list (and has been for years) of people who have been adjudicated "mentally incompetent" (where that's defined as "danger to self or others" or "unable to manage one's own affairs") and this list is used by the National Instant Check System (NICS) to see if a sale should be denied when they attempt to purchase a firearm.

Of course, one can only be added to the list after due process, so I don't really have a problem with it, just like I don't have any problem with people being convicted of felonies or violent misdemeanors being added to a different list queried by NICS.

I understand the desire to restrict people who are potentially violent (whether mentally ill or not) from being able to acquire firearms, but having a database of everyone who has mental health issues is overreaching and infringes on their rights.

BMulligan: knbwhite: edmo: His highly articulate thoughts complete with detailed implementation schema for stopping the killing of 5 and 6-year olds is a much welcome solution to our national problem. He and his buddies will have this all solved soon.

Backyard pools kill too many children. No one needs a backyard pool. If we can just save one child from drowning, I would gladly give up my right to have a back yard pool.

He, everyone, we've got a "special" one here. Put away any sharp objects you're not actually using at the moment.


If you come up with the best plan you could to try to save innocent life and ensure good people can exercise their right to choose how to protect themselves and innocents will still die. We allow cars to go faster than the speed limit and innocents die. We allow bars to serve more than enough liquor to intoxicate a person and drunk driving deaths and abuse happens. If you were king of the world what would your policy be?

There are many smart and good-hearted people who don't share your views on controvesial issues. Deep down, they are as sure that their opinon is the right one as you.

Why do Conservatives hate trains so much?

The same reason Authoritarians love them so much. It takes away a peoples independence to travel when and where they want to go. It is a wonderful way to control a population.

This sort of free association is one of the few things I love about the modern conservative movement. If there's something liberals like, they can link it to Hitler in 3 steps or less. If there's something that liberals hate, they can come up with 5 defenses of it within a minute. There's some real creativity there.

Ah Mark Levin, esteemed intellectual elite of the conservative constitutional movement. Uses words like lie-bruls and statist* and socialist and makes up stupid insulting nick names for anyone he disagrees with. Truly a top mind on the right. Oh and he used to push papers in the Reagan administration so Sean Hannity wants to suck his dick every time the two of them get together. He tries to be an independent conservative intellectual who doesn't always agree with everything the GOP does a la Niel Boortz**, but he's just as much of a fox news shill and raving retarded lunatic as Boortz and he makes even Hannity seem cogent most of the time. "THE MEXICANS AND A-RABS AND BLACK FOLK ARE GONNA KILL YOU, TAKE ALL YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY YOU GOT FOR BEING AN INDEPENDENT WORKING WHITE MAN BLESSED BY JESUS AND EVEN WORSE: THEY'RE GOING TAKE YOUR WOMEN TO MISCEGENATE WITH AND HAVE BROWN GAY LIBRUL FOODSTAMP WELFARE STATIST ANCHOR BABIES" is a good summation of his political philosophy.***

*Is statist a word anywhere but in derpville conservative media?
**Not that Boortz is anything other than a Fox News hack with a thin veneer of 'independent thought'
**Hyperbole, a technique used here for comedic effect, he has never gone out and actually said that, but in my past forced listening to his shiatty show (stupid redneck boss at work always had him and Hannity and Rush on during the day) he spent a disproportionate amount of time worrying about non-white folk ruining this nation with their welfare and immigration and voting rights and such.

I know. Driver's licenses and Pilot's licenses should be declared unconstitutional. If I have the money to get a 747 I should be able to fly it. No way is the government going to restrict my travel independence!

Weaver95: MARK LEVIN: You know folks, I'll be honest with you. I just told a friend of mine -- even though I sit behind this microphone and I try to be civil and so forth -- I can barely contain my fury about what's going on in this country. I'm just being honest with you. I can barely contain it. I'm so frustrated by this tyranny, you have no idea. Now we can analyze it, we can intellectualize it, we can parse it and so forth and try to unravel it. But I'm just telling you, from an emotional point of view, it is just so damned infuriating to see the greatest country on the face of the earth run by a bunch of lilliputians, who are constantly attacking it from within.


where was this 'fury' when the patriot act somehow got passed into law?  where was this fury when the war on drugs destroyed our 4th and 5th amendment rights?  where was this fury when cops beat the snot outta OWS for asking QUESTIONS!?

yeah.  that's what I thought.  STFU.  you aren't furious.  you're a whiny biatch looking for a quick pay day off the fears of disillusioned GOP voters.
