House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is among the "munchkin" Republicans who are afraid of alienating women by opposing reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, conservative talk-radio host Mark Levin said Wednesday night.
Levin blasted Cantor for "going to war" with conservatives by pressing them to support the Democrats' version of the bill.
"Eric Cantor is the number-two Republican in the House," Levin is quoted as saying. "He's the majority leader because we, the conservatives, made him the majority leader. We gave them the House of Representatives. Now he's passing a piece of ultra left-wing trash, dressed up as a violence against women law, which is a disaster, and threatening conservatives who want to kill it."
According to CNSNews, Levin also said, "We are not fooled by the title on this law," and "we are not fooled that aspects of it are unconstitutional and were ruled unconstitutional in the year 2000. And we are not fooled by the breadth of this law, which includes people who are not women, which confers jurisdiction in some cases to Indian tribes, which expands immigration for more illegal immigrants; and which has such ambiguous and vague language as 'emotional distress' or 'using unpleasant speech'."
CNSNews also reports that Levin said the "Violence Against Women Act is also the violence against men act, because it extends protections to homosexuals. 'You better keep that in mind. Because Eric Cantor is going to war with us. Mr.Cantor, I hate to tell you this: We're already in political war with you'."
