Mark Levin says Donald Trump attacks all conservatives

Mark Levin says that Donald Trump's attacks on Ted Cruz are not only an attack on Ted Cruz, but an attack on all conservatives.  That's because Levin feels that Trump is attacking Ted Cruz from the left, and making up phony attacks that are not based on policy or substance.

Levin says when Trump calls Cruz "nasty," Trump is just repeating attacks that Mitch McConnell and other fellow RINOS might say, and that Trump is implicitly attacking all conservatives who oppose the GOP establishment.

Even Rush Limbaugh has warned Trump that he's making a strategic mistake in the way he's going after Ted Cruz.

If Trump criticized Cruz for past positions he took that were liberal (there are some, though not as many as other candidates), I think everyone would understand.  But by attacking Cruz's character in standing up to the GOP establishment, Trump is implicitly attacking the conservative movement.

This leads me to ask: if Levin and Rush, undeniably leading voices in the conservative movement not just in the past year, like Donald Trump, but for decades, say that Donald Trump is attacking conservatives, how, then, can we do anything but conclude that Trump is no conservative at all?

And if we conclude that Trump is no conservative, how can we justify a vote for him, just on the issue of Supreme Court appointments alone?  (You can see Trump's liberal ruminations on Supreme Court appointments here.)

In a battle between Donald Trump and a real conservative, I'll choose the conservative every time.
