"He talks endlessly of moderation yet does not appear to live in the real world."

In a comprehensive rebuttal to Weekly Standard book reviewer Peter Berkowitz, best-selling author, lawyer, and radio talk show host Mark Levin diagnoses a malady that seems to infect so many elitists and effete-ists on the Right who look down their noses at conservative rabble-rousers who speak and act too immmmmmmoderately in their attacks on tyranny and defenses of liberty.

Write Levin of Berkowitz:

“He talks endlessly of moderation yet does not appear to live in the real world.”

Read Levin’s entire takedown at The American Thinker.

It dovetails nicely with a passage in the speech I gave at the Dallas Tea Party on July 4:

Freedom is not for government to give.

But it IS for all of us to ensure that government does not take away.

On this first principle, we can afford no moderation. The business of protecting our home life from meddling intrusion, our homeland from foreign invasion, and our commerce from reckless restriction is not to be conducted in dulcet tones with bent spines and bowed heads.

The founding fathers did not intend for us to politely implore the masters of government for freedom like Oliver Twist begging Mr. Bumble to fill his meager bowl with more gruel:

“Please sir, I want some more.”

Only extreme vigilance – forceful, rabble-rousing, aggressive, unyielding vigilance, can safeguard our inalienable rights. And in practicing this extremism, we have nothing – NOTHING – to apologize for. Ever.
