• Levin: The Liberal Media Is Racist

    Radio talk show host Mark Levin sounded off Friday night about the mainstream media’s aggressive effort to smear GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson.

    Politico accused Carson Friday morning of lying about being offered a scholarship to West Point, the latest instance in a series of bombardments by the liberal media against the retired neurosurgeon.

    The attacks against Carson come as national polls show him surging into the lead of the Republican presidential race.

    Levin declared that the onslaught against Carson’s background and character is attributed to the liberal media being racist.

    “Are there any black/Republican candidates who aren’t mistreated and maltreated by the liberal media?” Levin wondered. “Are there any senior black appointees who are conservative, not like Collin Powell, but conservative like Clarence Thomas who aren’t treated like crap by the liberal media? It’s not one here and there, it’s the rule.”

    Politico alleges in their hit-piece, entitled, “Carson Admits Fabricating His West Point Scholarship” that Carson lied about the scholarship because the military academy does not offer full scholarships. Yet, Levin read an ad on-air that was placed by West Point years ago, offering men and women a full scholarship to academy.

    Levin also pointed out how Politico conveniently changed the headline later in the day to “Carson Claimed West Point ‘Scholarship’ But Never Applied.”

    “They are trying to make him look like a fool, they are trying to make him look like a liar,” the Great One chided. “They did the same to Michael Steele. They did the same—I can go down the list—to Clarence Thomas.”

    He declared that liberal Democrats will only support minorities as long as they don’t think for themselves and try to defend their constitutional liberties against the iron-fisted power of the state.

    “Why is that accomplished, intelligent, professional black men and women who are conservatives and Republicans are treated like this?” he wondered. “I am going to tell you why because the white liberals, who are Democrats, have never quite turned off what it means to be a Democrat—this is what the Democrat party has done from the beginning of its existence, this is what they do.”

    “The Pretorian guard media will protect, defend, demote minorities as long as they believe in the iron fist of central government, as long as they don’t step out and think for themselves,” he continued. “As long as they don’t step out and insist on liberty and private property rights. As long as they reject America’s founding and history, then they will hold them up and promote them. Because they believe in an all-powerful centralized government and more and more in a police state.”

    Levin warned that he will not support any Republican candidate who piles on Carson in the wake of the leftist media unfairly attacking him.

    “I don’t play that game. We can support our candidates based on ideology, but we saw something at the last debate that was very important. All the Republicans came together to push back against a media that is destroying this country,” he said. “You don’t pile on in situations like this.”
