(CNSNews.com) — The entertainment industry in America is embracing Marxism through movies, shows, and more, making “tyranny," "the American model of Marxism, cool,” conservative radio host Mark Levin said on “The Mark Levin Show” Tuesday.

Levin began this segment of the show discussing how millions of people are coming to the United States because they “want to come here for the benefits, not the liberty.” 

The radio host then stated that the entertainment industry is filled with propaganda that makes Marxism cool. 

"So much of entertainment in this country is propaganda," he said. "Whether you watch late night comedians, which I used to watch all the time, but now I don’t because it’s just too much. So propaganda takes many forms: assemblies at school, a television series, movies, comedy shows, the culture. It’s the culture. 

"So it makes tyranny, or the American model of Marxism, cool. It’s cool."

He also said the bureaucracy of this country was built to aid the Democrat Party, making it harder for anyone outside of the party to get a fair shake in government. 

Below is a transcript of this portion of “The Mark Levin Show”:

Levin: So you can see you’re going to have tens of millions of people come into this country, overwhelm the country, not because they want to be Americans, not because they want to have allegiance to America—I mean—the American Marxists don’t have allegiance to America; they’re pulling down statues!

Because they want to come here for the benefits, not for the liberty. That will end the country. That will end the country and the Democrats know this because as I tell you over and over again, they put party first, just like the communist parties and these other regimes. 

The American Marxist model puts the Democrat party first. So the Democrat party comes before our country, before anything else. It’s the party. Members of the party, members of the party are protected.

You look at entertainment. So much of entertainment in this country is propaganda. Whether you watch late night comedians, which I used to watch all the time, but now I don’t because it’s just too much. So propaganda takes many forms: assemblies at school, a television series, movies, comedy shows, the culture. It’s the culture. 

So it makes tyranny, or the American model of Marxism, cool. It’s cool. And you want to be cool, particularly if you’re young, right? So it’s socially attractive, it’s just very cool.

And then you have what I call post-constitutionalism, where the power has moved away from individuals to the state, whatever the state is. It could be the city, it could be the state itself, or it could be the federal government. But it’s moved mostly away from the people to the unelected elements, whether it’s the federal courts, the state courts, whether it’s the bureaucracy, like the teacher’s unions and so forth. And so, while you go through the motions of representative government, you go through the motions of voting, it’s either inconsequential or of little consequence in many communities.

I’m not saying for president, as an example, I’m just saying in many communities. And if we re-elect Donald Trump, God willing, he’s still going to be up against it because the bureaucracy is built to support the Democrat Party and vice versa. The bureaucracy is the army of the Democrat Party, whether it’s the local teacher’s union, or whether it’s the unions of the federal bureaucracy, whoever it is. 

They serve the Democrat party and the Democrat party feeds them and nurtures them. So when a Republican or a Trump is elected, he’s already on his heels immediately. When a Democrat’s elected, they embrace one another and they further empower one another.
