President Donald J. Trump tweeted out a clip of nationally syndicated radio talk show host of “The Mark Levin Show” Mark Levin speaking on the Fox News show “Hannity” on Thursday evening, Levin calling out “the Squad” in the clip and saying they hate President Donald Trump because he loves America and is the greatest president Israel has ever seen.
“So, they hate the president because he has two strikes against him: he loves America, and he’s the greatest president that Israel has ever seen – recognizing their capitol in Jerusalem, moving our embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing sovereignty of Israel over the Golan Heights, kicking the PLO the hell out of our country, cutting off funds for terrorists that are linked to the Palestinian Authority,” stated Mark Levin on “Hannity” with host Sean Hannity.
Mark Levin’s remarks on “Hannity” came after the House on Tuesday night voted to condemn Trump’s tweets targeting Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.) and after subsequent resolution for impeachment was “tabled” on Wednesday. As reported by CNSNews.com, “On Wednesday, 137 Democrats joined 194 Republicans and one independent voting to kill the resolution, while 95 Democrats – just over 40 percent of the caucus – voted against the motion.” High-profile freshmen Reps. Omar, Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez and Pressley were among the 95 votes in favor of keeping Green’s resolution alive.
Below is a transcript in pertinent part of Mark Levin’s remarks from “Hannity” on Thursday:
“And Sean, I want to thank you for having me on tonight as I watch this idiocy that’s taking place in our country.
“President Trump was addressing the content of the character of these four women, not the color of their skin, but the media want it to be otherwise. The media are projecting, and the media are insisting on the opposite because they want the narrative of racism. He didn’t talk about race. He didn’t talk about skin color. He didn’t talk about religion. He talked about them, the content or lack thereof, of their character.
“On the other hand, Omar, Tlaib, AOC – I don’t know this Pressley that well— They are degrading an entire faith, an entire people – Jews, Israelis – an entire country: Israel. So it shouldn’t surprise anybody that their venom for America is the same as their venom for Israel and vice versa. That’s typical of the radical, hard left.
“And the evidence is overwhelming that these women are anti-Semite bigots, and they don’t hide it – they don’t hide it – the BDS movement, constant references to Hitler and the Third Reich and concentration camps. They have no knowledge of history. They’ve never visited these sites. Their families have really done nothing for this country. I’m going to be very blunt about it. I don’t know what they’ve done in support of this country, while they rip this great country apart, while we have men and women in uniform of all faiths and all colors in one hell hole after another all over the world trying to defend people and promote freedom. We have this fifth column in our country – and they’re not alone, the media’s a fifth column too – undermining us at home while our brave men and women are fighting abroad.
“So they hate the president because he has two strikes against him: he loves America, and he’s the greatest president that Israel has ever seen – recognizing their capitol in Jerusalem, moving our embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing sovereignty of Israel over the Golan Heights, kicking the PLO the hell out of our country, cutting off funds for terrorists that are linked to the Palestinian Authority – and it’s driving these three anti-Semites nuts. That’s what’s going on.
“Now, 50 percent of the hate crimes in this country are against Jews. The media don’t mention, ‘You know, Democrat Party, you have a high tolerance for anti-Semitism in your ranks. Maybe you ought to tone it down. Maybe you ought to tone it down, Omar and Tlaib and AOC.’ But no, they’re celebrated. They’re promoted.
“Now let’s look at Donald Trump’s record when it comes to Muslims and women of color, particularly overseas. Let’s take a look at Syria, where this commander in chief ordered attacks on Syria to prevent that regime from gassing women of color, men of color, babies of color, Muslims. It was this president who stepped in, not Obama. It’s this president who ordered the military to destroy ISIS and the caliphate that was killing women of color, men of color, babies of color, Muslims. – Yazidis and Christians too, but primarily Muslims. It’s this commander in chief that oversees the war in Afghanistan to protect Muslims from the Taliban. That would be men, women, children of color.
“Now, what the hell have Omar and Tlaib and AOC done for men and women and children of color? Not a d--- thing.
“Now, let’s talk about the southern border. It’s this president, who said, ‘Look’ – and I didn’t even agree with this – ‘one, 1.2 million individuals who are here illegally, most of them south of the border, from south of the border, I’ll give them legalization, maybe even citizenship if we can cut a deal on immigration.’ The Democrats said, ‘No.’ Does that sound like a racist to you? It’s this president who was prescient and said, ‘Secure the border. You have people coming into this country, some of them are being kidnapped, brought into this country. We need to have a rational, humane process for immigration.’ It’s the Democrats who first said, ten years ago, ‘Secure the border,’ then called this a joke, a manufactured crisis. Now, they created the crisis. They created the lack of detention space. They created the lack of physical barriers. And now they blame the president who tried to prevent it.
“The media have allowed this to happen. They are a disgrace. They have a high tolerance for racism and anti-Semitism. Why? Because they are the mouthpiece for the hard left.
“This president is not a racist. This president is a patriot.”
