Wednesday in front of the U.S. Capitol at the rally against President Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear agreement titled “Stop the Iran Deal Rally,” conservative radio host Mark Levin attacked Republicans in Congress for not having gumption to reject the deal.
Levin said, “We are here to tell the world that we, the American people, are more resolute than ever. We are more resolute than ever to destroy those who threaten to wage war against us, our society and our ally, Israel. This enemy makes a grave error in confusing the appeasement of a president and a Democrat party and the capitulation of a Republican Congress with the strength and fortitude of the American people. Never before has a president of the United States, never before has a political party consented to funding or arming the enemy. Never before has a president entered into agreements with a terrorist regime that holds Americans hostage. That has killed and maimed thousands of American soldiers and that seeks nuclear weapons and ICBMs to attack his own country. Barack Obama makes Neville Chamberlain look like George S. Patton. This phony deal allows the Iranian terrorist regime to inspect its own nuclear sites, to continue uranium enrichment, to build advanced centrifuges, to perfect their ICBMs, to spend $150 billion on terrorism and in the end, to secure nuclear warheads. And as one Democrat after another, one conga line of Democrat after another supports this surrender, it’s clear that the Democrats no longer represent the party of Harry Truman and John F. Kennedy. It’s now the Democrat party of Bill Ayres and Barack Obama. And the Democrat party will have the blood on its hand as a result of this deal for the rest of time.”
He continued, “Let me be clear, this deal sows the seeds of war. The enemy is emboldened and the enemy will be well armed and seek regional and world domination. They told us so. What of the Republicans? The Republicans, the Republicans control that building behind us right now. You see that scaffolding up there? They should take some of that and use it on their damn spines. The Republican party, particularly the leadership, has abandoned the Constitution and the treaty power of the United States Senate. It is recklessly and deliberately avoiding any serious confrontation with a disastrous imperial president. They can stop this. They can invoke the treaty clause right now. They can suspend the filibuster rule and vote against lifting sanctions right now. They can stand between Obama and the Iranian terrorist regime and protect our nation and our allies, but they won’t. Gone is the party of Dwight Eisenhower, gone is the party of Ronald Reagan. Instead we get the party of McConnell and Corker and Boehner. Tell the Republicans this is not about getting along with Obama. It’s about stopping Obama.It’s about America’s interests. It’s about our children and the future generation. A final word, let me warn the seventh century throwbacks who like to chant ‘death to America’ in their home country. We Americans have been threatened better by better than you. We Americans have been threatened by forces far stronger than you and we have obliterated every damn one of them. The American people do not stir quickly. The American people do not stir quickly. but, when we do stir, you will regret it. Tell the Republicans in Congress it’s time to step up.”
