Mark Levin discusses "Rediscovering Americanism"

Author and conservative pundit Mark Levin contrasts what “we believe” with what “they believe” in an interview discussing his new book on "Fox and Friends."

Appearing on Tuesday’s show, Levin explained how his new book, “Rediscovering Americanism – and the Tyranny of Progressivism,” warns of the dangerous, destructive principles behind liberalism.

It’s vitally important to understand what liberal elites believe, because they currently have such great influence on our society, Levin said:

“We ignore academics and intellectuals at our own peril, because it is they who decide what kind of politics we’re going to have – whether it’s Marxism, whether it’s Capitalism, whatever it is.”

While conservatives value freedom and individualism, so-called “progressives” promote a grim form of tyranny, Levin warns:

“On the other side, we have this force of dark, gloom, bleak tyranny – and it’s progressivism.”

Levin closes with a rapid-fire contrast of what “we believe in” with “what they believe in,” listing the principles that set conservatism apart from progressivism – and calls on Americans to defend those precepts that made America great:

“It’s crucial, and I’m doing it here, that we take on their elites, that we take on their so-called thinkers, because the principles are with us.”
