Tuesday on his nationally syndicated radio program, LevinTV host Mark Levin called out Congress for voting to condemn Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King’s comments but turning a blind eye to anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party.

“I make no excuses for him. But here’s the thing that does bother me: I’ve been talking about rising anti-Semitism within the Democrat Party, in the Obama administration, in much of what Jimmy Carter says, Keith Ellison, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, these two new congresswomen — one’s a Palestinian; they’re both Muslims — Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. The things that they have said are pretty incredible,” Levin said.

Levin pointed out that nearly twice as many liberal Democrats say they sympathize with the Palestinians as with Israel, despite the fact that the Palestinian authority and Hamas do not embrace American principles and Hamas is considered a terrorist organization by our own government.

“You would think, while they’re having this vote on Steve King — I don’t socialize with Steve King, I don’t talk to Steve King … I’m no special pleader for him or any member of Congress. Let the chips fall where they may. But why is it that there is this vote — fine — but not another vote? Not another resolution coming out of the House of Representatives? I think it’s important that they reject racism. Why aren’t they rejecting anti-Semitism?” Levin asked.


“Our immigration policies invite more and more people into this country  …  who are of this mindset, and we’re not allowed to talk about it. And it’s in our face,” he said.
