Mark Levin, the right wing radio host, was here in Michigan the other day giving a speech at Hillsdale College and he was both whiny and dishonest in talking about the Kavanaugh nomination. He said we give more due process rights to terrorists than we do to conservatives Supreme Court nominees.
“If you are in this country and you’re a known terrorist and you’re captured, you have due process rights. You can’t just allege things. You’ve got to go through the system. If you’re a mass murderer, you get due process rights,” Levin said. He then pointed to the person, whom he described as “subhuman,” that authorities have charged with killing Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts and noted that even that suspect was entitled to due process in the courts.
“If you are a constitutionalist who is nominated to the Supreme Court, you are treated worse than a terrorist and a mass murderer,” Levin said. “Our entire system we just discussed—criminal, civil—the entire system is built around due process.”
He continued, “They have legal standards that they have to meet unless you’re nominated to serve on the Supreme Court and you want to uphold the Constitution. The Senate Judiciary Committee is a disgrace.”
