Wednesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin called out the attacks against Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis for what they are: Alinsky tactics.

Levin discussed DeSantis’ Democratic opponent, a Bernie Sanders-endorsed socialist named Andrew Gillum who Democrats know “cannot win.”

“That is, he cannot win if he comes fully out of the closet and exposes his socialism, his radicalism,” Levin said.

Levin explained that instead of debating Gillum’s radicalism, the media is focusing on the lie that Ron DeSantis said something racist in an interview on Fox News Wednesday.


“I want you all to be aware of this because this is the game plan all the time now,” Levin said. “The more radical, the more left the Democrat Party and its candidates are and become, the more they try to run their campaigns not on their radical ideology but on character assassination.”

“It’s an Alinsky tactic; he wrote all about it. You’ve got to target your enemy, personalize it, and destroy their character. And they’re Alinskyites,” Levin continued.

“They don’t want to run on socialism; they want to run on racism.”
