Just because you're a Republican doesn't mean you're not a socialist, nationally-syndicated conservative talk show host Mark Levin said in an interview on The Dan Bongino Show Saturday.
Warning against the far-left policies being pushed by politicians on both sides of the aisle, Levin told Host Dan Bongino that, while Democrats seek true socialism, some Republicans are beholden to a less severe form of it.
“The Republican Party is committed to a lite socialism, let’s just be honest about it. Even these so-called populist nationalists: they want a lot of government intervention,” Levine said in response to a question about fiscal responsibility.
"They [Republicans] want government intervention for things that they support and they want government intervention to stop things they oppose," Levin said.
“If you let the government in constantly to be referee, the government will devour you and the government will devour our liberty,” Levin warned.
Levine said that the government cannot be trusted to run the personal lives of Americans, because Republicans and Democrats alike are simply “knuckleheads” who aren’t smart enough to do so:
“We know that most of the people in Congress – maybe, not all, but most - are truly knuckleheads, and yet we want to confer all this authority and power on them to make decisions about our health care, immigration, and on and on and on,” he said.
And, it’s not just Congress that Americans should be wary of, Levin said, warning that many judges are also manipulating the Constitution to advance their personal ideologies.
“You look at these judges: many of them are playing a game. They’re using The Constitution to advance their ideology," so Americans should be free to take responsibility for their own lives, Levin said.
