Thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin retold the story of the Holocaust and the horrific persecution of the Jewish people to remind listeners of what anti-Semitism actually looks like.
“When you look at this tiny little country of Israel, the countries around it — Arab Muslim countries — have tried repeatedly to wipe it and the people there off the face of the earth. And in each attempt, they have failed. In each attempt, they have failed. Nobody’s tried to wipe Egypt off the face of the earth. Nobody’s tried to wipe Saudi Arabia off the face of the earth. Nobody’s tried to wipe Jordan off the face of the earth. Nobody’s tried to wipe Syria off the face of the earth. Nobody’s tried to wipe Lebanon off the face of the earth, and on and on. But Israel, because it’s populated with Jews, is to be wiped off the face of the earth. So says the Iranian regime, so say the various terrorist organizations, and so say members of the Democrat party who are in the United States Congress, lead by Ilhan Omar, a Somalian Islamic Muslim, who has challenged time and again the right of the state of Israel to exist, as has her colleague Tlaib, as has her colleague Ocasio-Cortez,” Levin said.
Earlier Thursday, the House of Representatives passed a nonbinding resolution, 407 to 23, which they claimed condemned anti-Semitism. Levin explained that in fact, the resolution does the opposite, though the New York Times and Washington Post have already scorned the Republicans who voted against it.
“This resolution, cobbled together by the Democrat party leadership — which includes Jewish Americans — did not condemn Omar, Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez. It did not condemn anti-Semitism qua anti-Semitism. You know what it condemned? The American people. It condemned the American people as an anti-Semitic people, which we are not,” he said. “As a racist people, which we are not. As a homophobic people, which we are not. And down the list.”
“The hate-America Democrats passed a resolution telling you that America sucks. And I am telling you, as an American Jew, I pray to God every day and thank him for being a child of this country — as we all do, from all walks of life. This is not about America. This is about Islamic fundamentalists who have now, as a result of our immigration policies and lack of assimilation, been elected to the United States House of Representatives. They hate America, they hate Jews, and they hate the state of Israel. That’s a fact.”
