Conservative talk radio host and scholar Mark Levin appeared on a taping of Breitbart News Sunday and said that the permanent political class should fear the Tea Party movement, which will only gain in strength in the years ahead.
Speaking with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon after he keynoted an event honoring the five-year anniversary of the movement, Levin said that the Tea Party has already rocked the political system in just five years because those in it want to clear out the crony capitalists on both sides of the aisle.
“We’re coming for the ruling class,” Levin said. “They should fear us.”
Levin said that the Tea Party is about preserving this republic, and that is why “millions identify with the movement” even though the media try to “character assassinate.”
“We are the liberty movement,” Levin said. “We’re a mindset. We’re a belief set. They can never take that away from us.”
He noted that the movement is only five years old, while the Republican and Democratic parties are old and ossifying.
When Bannon asked Levin about how he deals with the vicious attacks he has to deal with on a daily basis, Levin simply said that his grandfather served in World War II, and soldiers are the ones that are facing the real pressure.
Levin said that the “political hacks” and the “these corporatists stabbing you in the back… mean nothing to me.”
“I am not a victim,” he said. “I want to be victorious. I want to help save this country.”
Levin said the path to victory is putting the establishment on the run at the federal and state levels and focusing on local elections as much as national ones. If that occurs, Levin said the movement will be unstoppable in restoring the country back to its Constitutional principles.
