(CNSNews.com) -- Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin admonished First Lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday for her comments to Muslim students in London, pointing out that “America is a majority Christian nation, an overwhelmingly Christian nation...the most tolerant nation on the face of the earth.”
Levin’s comments were directed at the remarks made by the First Lady while visiting a girl’s school with a high Muslim population. “You wonder if people will ever see beyond your headscarf, to who you really are, instead of being blinded by the fears and misperceptions in their own minds,” Michelle Obama told the students.
“America treats minority religions, including Muslims, like no other country on the face of the earth: with respect, with due process, with certain rights under our First Amendment, under our brilliant Constitution,” Levin retorted on his June 16 broadcast.
Here is a transcript of what Levin said:
“Oh shut up. With all due respect, will you be quiet with your silly third grade crap? It’s so absurd. It’s so absurd. And she goes overseas and does this stuff. Because this is all she knows. This is all he knows. You realize, folks, right? They’re attacking you.
“Why didn’t she go to this school where these Muslim girls are and say, ‘Let me tell you something: America is a majority Christian nation, an overwhelmingly Christian nation. It’s the most tolerant nation on the face of the earth. America treats minority religions, including Muslims, like no other country on the face of the earth: with respect, with due process, with certain rights under our First Amendment, under our brilliant Constitution.
“We have sent American soldiers, the vast majority of whom are Christian, to places all over the world to protect the poor, to protect victims, to protect women -- women, just like you, who wear headscarves -- to protect your husbands and your children. Men and women who have died on the battlefield, in Iraq and Afghanistan, in other places all over the globe, to defend your right to practice your religion and to wear your headscarf.’
“Instead, we get this claptrap from this lady! She doesn’t love this country. She hates this country. She doesn’t love the American people. She hates the American people. She has a chip on her shoulder that doesn’t even belong on her shoulder. This magnificent country has treated her and her husband like no other country on the face of this earth would, or could.
“People who talk like this, and not just her and not just him, the people who live in luxuriated America and take advantage of the freedoms that are unique to America -- they’re ingrates. They live in a blessed land and they are blessed people. They’re ingrates. They don’t appreciate the men and women who came before them and who built this magnificent society.
“To go over there and speak to young Muslim girls wearing headscarves and talk about prejudice, putting down the American people when somebody’s son and daughter over there have died to protect people in headscarves, is about all I can take!”
