The violent Left in this country is “anti-American,” Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin said Wednesday.

On Wednesday evening’s episode of LevinTV, Levin condemned the “rise in violence on the Left” following a shooting attack in Alexandria, Va., by a radical leftist in which several congressional Republicans were targeted.

Levin explained that the ever-increasing violent speech and actions of the Left contributed to pushing the shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, over the edge.

“I’ve been talking often on my radio show about the rise in violence on the Left,” Levin said on CRTV Wednesday. “The language is violent, the conduct is violent, and that it is getting increasingly more dangerous. Now, of course, the point is that you have kooks out there. You have people who are on the edge. When you dumb down or mainstream violence, these people become violent and they act out."

“I make no excuses for a murderer or a would-be murderer like this guy Hodgkinson, but on the other hand I make no excuse either for the rhetoric of the Left, the media coverage on the Left, for the nature in which our president has been attacked — where assassination becomes mainstream,” he said.

Levin used clips of left-wing protests against President Trump and video of these protests devolving into violence to demonstrate how the violent rhetoric coming from the Left is “beyond the pale.”

And not only rhetoric, but actual violence as well. In the video Levin plays, left-wing Antifa mobs brutally assault people. Murder is the logical extension of this kind of violence.

“The only time I remember violence like this … was the 1960s,” Levin said. “When Barack Obama’s buddies Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn – people like that – these underground movements that poisoned our universities and so forth took place.”

“And you’ll notice they’re violent, they’re anti-cop, they’re anti-Trump. They’re anti-American.”
