I must preface this story by saying that I have always respected Mark Levin. He seemed like a straight shooter with a good understanding of the Constitution and a bias against the GOPe.
Recent information has scuttled all that.
I was shocked to read that Mr. Levin has a fiance. He had a wife of many years with whom he had two children, I believe. What happened? He reached middle age and got a case of wife dumping? Doesn’t seem like the most conservative or ethical thing to do.
I don’t know all the facts, obviously. But here’s one I do know. His fiance’s son works in Ted Cruz’s office. That’s a tad smelly, don’t you think? Particularly when Levin has gone 110% for Cruz and by the way, gotten some radio advertising out of it. There is even talk of a big book buy of Plunder and Deceit, Levin’s latest, by Cruz PACs. You see how one hand washes the other?
Also smelly is this group of conservatives compiling a blacklist. Not of Hillary, not of liberals caught in scandals, not of people threatening others. It’s a blacklist of Trump supporters that they would like to see thrown off Planet Conservative. You know, radicals like Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Laura Ingraham, Sarah Palin, Chris Christie, Ben Carson, Ann Coulter, Sen. Jeff Sessions.
Matt Walsh of the Blaze and Amanda Carpenter of Conservative Review are heading up this task and they have also taken aim at Matt Drudge, Brietbart, Jerry Falwell Jr. and Robert Jeffriess. They are targeting these “radicals” as well: Phyllis Schlafly, Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich.

Many more and Joe McCarthy looks like a slacker.
What do they intend to do with this list? Isn’t this something Democrats/liberals/Soros people do? Would you want to be in that group?
And that isn’t even touching on Glenn Beck, whose latest rage is against Southern Evangelicals who he says aren’t following God’s will. He’s shown himself to be wacko this campaign season. The other day in Utah he praised a young boy for fasting for Ted Cruz.
This has been one crazy election season.
