“Do you remember" the left-wing activists who invaded the Capitol during then-Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearing "being rounded up as a group and being arrested and sent to the D.C. jail system, where they sat day after day before they could actually have a trial? Because I don’t remember that," Fox News host Mark Levin said Sunday.

Levin hosted Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), who told Levin that he believes the Republican Party will take back the House and Senate in the November midterm election because Americans are tired of the Democrats’ and Biden Administration’s double standards.

“I don’t remember it either," Jordan responded. "I don’t remember when the Wisconsin State House was taken over by left-wing folks day after day in Wisconsin. I don’t remember the Democrats and the left using the same language when for like 100 days straight, there was a seize on the federal court building in Portland, Ore. So there’s always a double standard."

Levin added on to the list:

"1954, there were four Puerto Rican separatists who sat up in the House Gallery and shot five members of Congress. One was very badly wounded, four others were hit. All of them were pardoned by Jimmy Carter. In 1971, the weather underground blew up a room in the Capitol building, they went back just for good measure in 1983, but also the next year, they blew up a place at the Pentagon and they also hit the State Department. I don’t remember any commissions, maybe there should have been, and they were all, eventually, either pardoned, or something else happened to them. Over time, some went to jail, but then again were pardoned."

Below is a transcript of this portion of the segment: 

Mark Levin: “During the Kavanaugh hearings, the Capitol building was breached by individuals who went into the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on multiple occasions and disrupted the confirmation hearings. And they seemed to have a lot of support by the Democrats; they would also go into the elevators to challenge senators and intimidate senators and so forth. Do you remember them being rounded up as a group and being arrested and sent to the D.C. jail system, where they sat day after day before they could actually have a trial? Because I don’t remember that.” 

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH): “I don’t remember it either. I don’t remember when the Wisconsin State House was taken over by left-wing folks day after day in Wisconsin. I don’t remember the Democrats and the left using the same language when for like 100 days straight, there was a seize on the federal court building in Portland, Ore. So there’s always a double standard. There's always a double standard with these folks. The American people, though, see it for what it is and that’s why I really do believe – now look, I’m not overconfident; you never want to be overconfident, but I really do think that we're going to take back the House this November because I think the American people have just had it with everything about the Biden Administration. I mean, everything they have touched has been wrong, everything they have done has been wrong, every policy they’ve done has been wrong, not to mention all the strange things we’re seeing happen when they attack our liberties.” 

Levin: “Which I want to get to in the next segment, but 1954, there were four Puerto Rican separatists who sat up in the House Gallery and shot five members of Congress. One was very badly wounded, four others were hit. All of them were pardoned by Jimmy Carter. In 1971, the weather underground blew up a room in the Capitol building, they went back just for good measure in 1983, but also the next year, they blew up a place at the Pentagon and they also hit the State Department. I don’t remember any commissions, maybe there should have been, and they were all, eventually, either pardoned, or something else happened to them. Over time, some went to jail, but then again were pardoned. The Democrats and Joe Biden have said that Jan. 6 is the greatest attack to our democracy in American history, since the Civil War. Seems to me those were pretty bad. When the Marxist left attacks our buildings, riots, burns down our streets, brutalizes other people, and are proud of what they’re doing and announce what they’re doing, how come that’s never a threat to our democracy? You notice that? People are pardoned – President Trump talked about pardoning all of these people, should he become president of the United States. And I heard Lindsey Graham, and I heard Susan Collins, and I heard the Democrats, and I thought, where the hell were you people when these other people were pardoned? And I was talking about, not 1954 per se, but I was talking about it in the course of my career and also on radio.”

Jordan: “Well, Mark, it’s even worse. Remember in the summer of 2020, the Democrat Party said that rioters and looters were peaceful protesters and in fact, they helped raise money to bail out those guys, those individuals who were attacking our law enforcement. They helped raise money to bail them out of jail, including the vice president – the sitting vice president of the United States. So, yeah, again, the American people are so fed up with the double standard, so fed up with certain rules for the left and the elite and the rest of us regular people, we have to follow a different set of – they are so sick of that; I think it’s going to manifest itself in a huge wave in November and hopefully, we're going to take back the House and the Senate come November’s midterm election.”
