A Perfect Video for Independence Day
Radio host Mark Levin, author of “Rediscovering Americanism,” criticized the progressive movement for “rejecting” the principles laid out in the Declaration of Independence. Ahead of Independence Day, the New York Times ran a full-page feature on the Constitution. Levin said the feature was just another example of the progressive left misunderstanding American history and the principles of this country. He noted Constitution Day is September 17, and that July 4 instead honors the Declaration of Independence. “The entire progressive movement rejects the Declaration of Independence,” Levin, a former DOJ chief of staff, said. “That’s why you’ll never see a full page of the Declaration of Independence in the New York Times,” he said.
He said that progressives believe that rights come from the government, while the Declaration describes how they are inalienable grants to humanity from God. Levin said those who fought and died in the Revolution would be “appalled” by progressives like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who believe in a central government redistributing wealth. “[They] can’t have health care unless the government controls it and redistributes it,” he said. Levin also discussed the media’s fixation with President Trump’s feud with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, remarking that “sonograms” have better ratings than MSNBC. Hat tip: Tea Partiest.
