Only on Brody File: Mark Levin : Joe Scarborough and Moderate GOP Crowd Are 'Meaningless to Me'


In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, radio talk show host Mark Levin has a message for critics like Joe Scarborough and other establishment Republicans.

“Well, as for an individual like Scarborough, he has almost no audience and no ratings and he keeps telling us how to get bigger audiences and bigger ratings and reach more people. Well, why doesn’t he demonstrate it? How does he do it?” Levin tells The Brody File.

“Standing for nothing doesn’t attract people, whether it’s in media or entertainment or politics or anything else. He's meaningless to me. That whole crowd is meaningless to me,” he said.

Levin’s new best-selling book, The Liberty Amendments is catching fire across the country. The Brody File interviewed Levin at his home (in his top classified secret underground bunker!) about his book that looks at amending the Constitution through Article V in which states would gather to hold a convention to propose amendments to the constitution and then three-fourths of the states would need to ratify them.

It’s a bold proposal but Levin argues that liberals have done so much damage to the Constitution that something must be done.

David Brody: I do want you to address all these critics. For example, the ‘Joe Scarborough crowd,’ those folks who say you’re preaching to the choir but you’ve got to move to the middle, you’ve got to be more moderate, more tolerant, big tent, the whole thing. What do you make of what you’ve heard when you hear Scarborough and all these other guys talk about all this?

Mark Levin: Well, as for an individual like Scarborough, he has almost no audience and no ratings and he keeps telling us how to get bigger audiences and bigger ratings and reach more people. Well, why doesn’t he demonstrate it? How does he do it?

Standing for nothing doesn’t attract people, whether it’s in media or entertainment or politics or anything else. He's meaningless to me. That whole crowd is meaningless to me. The whole purpose of this book is to bypass them, to go over their heads. I've had it with the naysayers. I've had it with those who are dispiriting our people.

The public school system can't stop us, MSNBC can't stop us, ossified Republicans can't stop us. Only we can stop us.

Brody: How do you feel about the folks that want to try and make you and others like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh obsolete? They want to try and run you guys out.

Levin: Well, people who want to pigeonhole me or others I suppose they want to pigeonhole us because we’re too effective at what we do but it’s not going to work. We’re not going anywhere whatever the form is or however we communicate. There are millions of people out there who are not going to be silenced.

Now, we may not be running the federal government right now and our ideas may be just budding even though they’re based on tried and true ancient ideas. The fact of the matter is this is the opposition and the opposition will use whatever techniques and tactics it can to try and quite us but it’s not going to work.

They’re not going to quiet me. I’m going to keep pressing ahead until I personally, or the good Lord decides that they’ll be no further efforts. I look at it this way: My grandfather fought at Iwo Jima and Guam and my great uncle fought at Guadalcanal. What would they tell me now? They’d say,’(bleep) Mark get off your butt and fight to the very end and that’s my attitude.”

Brody: And that’s what you’re telling your radio audience.

Levin: And that’s what I tell my radio audience. Okay, there are times when we’re going to be dispirited and they’re going to be times when we’re a little depressed. But just get over it because we have to battle this.

The problem is that we the Republicans have had two moderates running and not gotten elected. How about we try a real conservative? I think that people are beginning to see what more government control is doing to our country. Let Mark Levin try things his way and see where it gets us!
