Mark Levin has become the voice of the conservative movement in America in recent years. The reasons are fairly easy to see, as Levin is more consistently conservative (as opposed to Republican) than Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and Hugh Hewitt, and he’s more willing to ruffle feathers these days than the old lion of conservative broadcasting himself, Rush Limbaugh. While all of these radio leaders still hold an important place in the national political dialogue, it’s Levin who’s become the favorite of those who call themselves conservative instead of Republican.
Recently, Levin took the #NeverTrump movement to task for being too extreme and promising to side against Donald Trump even if he becomes the Republican nominee. However, it seems that Levin has reconsidered that position and is now siding with #NeverTrump itself. Why? Levin argues that the “bully tactics” of those within the Trump organization have forced him to recognize that the candidate himself must be as dirty as the rest of his campaign.
I’ve backed [score]Ted Cruz[/score], and I’m going to continue to back Cruz, but here’s what I’m going to do. As a result of what the Trump supporters have attempted here, particularly Roger Stone, I am not voting for Donald Trump. Period. … And if anybody has a problem with that, Donald Trump, you can talk to Roger Stone. These bully, dirty tricks, Nixonian tactics, they’re only going to backfire. They’re only going to backfire. So, count me as never Trump. There’s been too much of this folks, way too much of this. The crap in the National Enquirer against Ted Cruz, the attacks on Michelle Fields, I mean, I can go right through the list, too much, too much, too much. At some point, you’ve got to stand up to it.
And if they piss me off one more time, I’m going to urge millions and millions of you, should he get the nomination, not to vote for him either. And ‘Ooh, Roger Stone has nothing to do with the campaign.’ Oh yes he does.
