American talk radio host on the Cumulus-owned heritage radio station WMAL Larry O’Connor, while filling in for Mark Levin on his nationally syndicated radio show, The Mark Levin Show, on Wednesday, said the media “don’t want you to use the term ‘mob’” when describing the mainstream media and liberals' “mob tactics.”

“The media, the left, the liberals, the Democrats, they don’t want you to use the term ‘mob’ when describing their mob tactics – stopping traffic, marching in the streets, clawing at the door of the Supreme Court, screaming with a bullhorn on your front door, invading private property of a restaurant and disrupting people while they’re trying to have dinner,” Larry O’Connor, who has his own radio show, stated. “No justice, no peace was what I’ve heard from them in the past, and you heard Hillary Clinton say we can’t have civility until the Democrats take the House and the Senate back.”

Larry O’Connor’s remarks referred to the refusal by some members of the media to use the word “mob” when describing recent actions by left-wing protestors.

Read the full transcript of O’Connor’s remarks during Levin’s show on Wednesday:

Larry O’Connor: “The media, the left, the liberals, the Democrats, they don’t want you to use the term ‘mob’ when describing their mob tactics – stopping traffic, marching in the streets, clawing at the door of the Supreme Court, screaming with a bullhorn on your front door, invading private property of a restaurant and disrupting people while they’re trying to have dinner.

“No justice, no peace was what I’ve heard from them in the past, and you heard Hillary Clinton say we can’t have civility until the Democrats take the House and Senate back. There you go, that’s the threat.

“So what are you going to do to stop them? Because if you don’t do something between now and election day, 27 days from now, that’s exactly what will happen. The mob will be in charge.

“And here’s the president, Saturday night, in his rally, right after the vote confirming Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court justice. This was brilliant.

“Here’s what he said”:

President Donald Trump: “You don’t hand matches to an arsonist. And you don’t give power to an angry, left-wing mob – and that’s what they’ve become. The Democrats have become too extreme and too dangerous to govern. Republicans believe in the rule of law, not the rule of the mob.”

O’Connor: “There you go. That’s it. And when he said that Saturday, I’m telling you, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, the hierarchy of the Democratic Party in this town [Washington D.C.] who exploit those people out on the street, who use them and harness them as their base, they saw the president say that and they thought to themselves, ‘Oh, crap. That’s brilliant.

“Because normative Americans do not want to hand power over to those people that you’re seeing in the streets. They’re the dregs of our society. They don’t deserve to be in charge of our House of Representatives and the United States Senate. That’s the winning message, and that’s why, suddenly, you can’t call them a mob.”
