Mark Levin on Cities: People Are Getting Out or Getting Brutalized

By John Jakubisin | August 4, 2020 | 2:41pm EDT

Conservative radio host Mark Levin said Monday that while "wealthy, liberal white people" are fleeing cities afflicted with anarchist violence, others are stuck there and getting "literally brutalized."

Levin made this comment on "The Mark Levin Show," saying that the 2020 election is “life and death for America” and that Democrats have released a “cancer” on society.

Levin elaborated on the actions of Democrats, saying, "they see the Democrats rioting, they see the Democrats attacking federal facilities, they see the Democrats attacking monuments, like them or not, they see the Democrats lining up with Marxists and anarchists, they see the Democrats trashing our first responders. Remember them, our heroes?"

Levin pointed to the importance of the election, calling it "life and death for America. And you can already see the cancer that the Democrats have unleashed on our society. Our cities are experiments; they are the guinea pigs."

“Nobody wants to live there anymore, and they can’t get out; those who can are getting out, like wealthy, liberal white people. But other people who can’t get out, they’re stuck there, and they’re brutalized, they are literally brutalized."

Below is a transcript of the segment. 

Levin: But what about the rest of America? They see the Democrats rioting, they see the Democrats attacking federal facilities, they see the Democrats attacking monuments, like them or not, they see the Democrats lining up with Marxists and anarchists, they see the Democrats trashing our first responders. Remember them, our heroes?

I'm thinking what if another few jets fly into those towers, Mr. Producer, new towers, who's going to run in now, the liberals? The media? No, I don't think so, I don't think so. Open borders? I just cannot believe, I cannot believe that America has fallen so quickly, that a majority, a significant majority of Americans, aren’t going to say "you know what? We’re not buying the static, we’re not buying the propaganda, we don’t care about tweets, none of that matters, we see what's going on." 

And the fact is, in terms of policies, Donald Trump has either been conservative or relatively moderate, but he’s been bold, bold when it's the border wall, when it's the court system, and so forth and so on. There are things that are done, as a matter of policy, I don’t always agree with, but so what? So what? 

This is life and death for America. That's what this election is about: life and death for America. And you can already see the cancer that the Democrats have unleashed on our society. Our cities are experiments; they are the guinea pigs. 

Nobody wants to live there anymore, and they can’t get out; those who can are getting out, like wealthy, liberal white people. But other people who can’t get out, they’re stuck there, and they’re brutalized, they are literally brutalized. 

You have a police department in Minneapolis that's been utterly destroyed, and so now they're putting out advice on how to be a victim, how to be a better victim...how to be a better victim.
