On Thursday, conservative talk radio host Mark Levin said House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) is lashing out at conservatives and throwing “temper tantrums” because he wants to delegitimize them as preparation for the looming fight over amnesty.
Levin said Boehner is “raising his voice” and throwing “temper tantrums” because he needs the votes of Republicans who are on the fence about immigration reform.
“He’s making it clear that it’s now time to take sides,” Levin explained.
Boehner has blasted conservative groups for opposing the budget, saying the Tea Party has “lost credibility.”
In reference to Boehner’s assertion that conservative groups criticized the budget before they knew what was in it, Levin said he was briefed on the deal over the weekend when the Republican leadership “wanted me to know about it.”
“And I’m not the only one,” Levin said. “So why does he keep saying this? Why does he keep lying about this?”
Levin said Boehner was “lying through his teeth,” trashing conservative groups because his ultimate endgame is the amnesty that the Chamber of Commerce, the Bush family, Karl Rove, and the Republican establishment’s corporate donors have demanded.
Levin mentioned that the country’s debt has increased over $3 trillion since Boehner became House Speaker. He mocked those establishment Republicans who are trying to convince Americans the budget deal would reduce the country’s debt despite its doing away with the sequester.
“Are you kidding me?” Levin asked.
Levin said the Republican “sellouts,” “losers,” and “RINOs” want their legacies defined by the big media outlets like the “New York Slime” and the “Washington ComPost.” He emphasized that Boehner is squarely in this camp.
Boehner has said amnesty was “absolutely not” dead. Breitbart News previously reported that amnesty advocates were special beneficiaries of a budget deal, as one would clear the legislative calendar so the House could vote on amnesty.
