A GOP congressman tries to get Mark Levin’s radio show removed from the station in his district

April 12, 2013

Friday, April 12, 2013:  At the open of his show Mark revealed that a Republican US congressman is upset with certain of Mr. Levin’s comments about him. As a result, the congressman has asked for Mr. Levin’s radio show to be removed  from the local radio station in his district that carries it. Mr. Levin observes:

1. The congressman may not be up to date, but people have many ways to access his show even if his local station doesn’t carry it.

2. If the show is removed from the particular local station, Mr. Levin will visit the congressman’s office on Capitol Hill and have a discussion with him.

3. “You may treat freshman and conservative members of congress this way, but you’re not going to treat me this way, got that, tough guy?” said Mr. Levin.

4. “We have a real mob problem on Capitol Hill.”

5. “I’m not surprised this is happening.”

The GOP has long despised talk radio. In 2007, GOP tough guy insider Trent Lott said talk radio is the problem with America:

6/15/07, “Senate Leaders Agree to Revive Immigration Bill,” NY Times,” R. Pear, J. Zeleny

“The Republican whip, Trent Lott of Mississippi, who supports the (immigration) bill, said:

Further into the conversation, Mr. Lott said,

  • Senate Republican leaders may try to rein in “younger guys who are huffing and puffing against the (immigration) bill.””…

==============================

Update:  Mr. Levin says on his twitter page that the Republican referenced is not Boehner. Boehner wasn’t my first guess. My first guess was the California whip Kevin McCarthy, second, Eric Cantor.
