On his show Thursday, nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin discussed a recent EEOC decision to investigate a discrimination claim made by a federal employee regarding political speech, saying that “all of our Bill of Rights are under attack.”
“This is what is meant ladies and gentleman about the First Amendment being under attack,” said Mark Levin. “People say, ‘give me an example,’ I just gave you an example. All of our Bill of Rights are under attack.”
In this monologue, Levin was referencing an article from The Washington Post, which reported that the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was investigating a harassment claim made by an African American federal employee who claimed “discrimination on the basis of race” after a co-worker wore a “Don’t Tread on Me” cap to work.
See below for a transcript of Levin’s comments:
“This is what is meant ladies and gentleman about the First Amendment being under attack. People say, ‘give me an example.’ I just gave you an example.
“All of our Bill of Rights are under attack. Some of them have already been destroyed, like the Tenth Amendment, federalism; like the Ninth Amendment, unalienable rights, I would argue.
“Due process – more and more limited due to the massive growth of the administrative state and strict liability regulations.
“The ‘Takings Clause,’ that is your private property is to be protected, and if the government interferes with it it’s supposed to pay you something. And for the most part, it doesn’t.
“First Amendment: religious liberty, freedom of association, free speech, all under attack.
“Second Amendment, obviously, the individual right to bear arms, under constant attack, constant attack, in addition to the broader principles: separation of powers, Congress’s power of the purse, the Senate’s power of treaty ratification.
“And there’s more: the bastardization of the Fourteenth Amendment, the invisible ink that provides for abortion on demand, and on and on and on and on.”
