Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin said that “we’ve had a silent coup in this country” with the Obama administration taking over healthcare, targeting the suburbs, and nationalizing the local police.
“His government doesn’t have the authority to do any of these things, but he does it,” Levin said on his July 8 broadcast. “Well, if that’s not martial law, what the hell is? We’ve had a silent coup in this country.”
Here is a transcript of what Levin said:
“So, Obama’s pushing the ‘browning of America,’ not my phrase, theirs, ‘with open amnesty.’ Even if it means murderers, rapists and whatever come in. His friends in the sanctuary cities, he hasn’t spoken against a sanctuary city yet, has he? Despite the mayhem and the murder?
"Not a word. Nothing.
“He’s taken over our healthcare system and he’s destroying it. He’s destroying everything. And now, he is targeting the suburbs. He’s specifically targeting the suburbs. He’s nationalized local police departments effectively.
“You know people say, ‘Obama is going to declare martial law.’ He’s doesn’t have to declare it. He’s exercising it, isn’t he? His government doesn’t have the authority to do any of these things, but he does it.
"Well, if that’s not martial law, what the hell is?
“We’ve had a silent coup in this country. And the damn fools on the Supreme Court, most of them, not all of them … ‘Yes, yes. Yes he did. Prosecutorial discretion…we defer to the …’ Damn, fools."
