Fox News host Mark Levin called out the Democratic Party for “tolerating” anti-Semitism Sunday on “Life Liberty & Levin.”
He highlighted an event led by Louis Farrakhan, who used his speech to attack the Jewish people.
“ Jewish power fears all our people of knowledge, wisdom and talent. But just look at what these people control. And every door that leads to power, they have a guard on guard. Someone must take over the synagogue of Satan. And here we are. What good is your vote if the man you voted for has to go to someone you never elected? Behind the door to get directions. And the Jews have gotten rich just by lending money, charging you interest, and the stranglehold the Jews have on this government,” Farrakhan said at the Saviors Day event.
Levin said he wanted to highlight the remarks because Farrakhan has a “significant impact” on the Democratic Party.
WHO IS LOUIS FARAKHAN? WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LEADER’S CONTESTED NATION OF ISLAM
“Is there a reason Joe Biden didn’t condemn this? Is there a reason Kamala Harris didn’t? Is there a reason no one in the White House reported it? Is there a reason the Washington press corps is dismissive of it?” Yes, there are reasons for that,” he said. Levin highlighted how Farrakhan was invited to the Congressional Black Caucus for lunch on Capitol Hill.
“Why did they call this man? Because the Democratic Party has a problem,” the host argued.
He read part of an article by Kevin Williamson in the National Review, who argued that Democrats have a “little socialist problem.”
“They have a big problem in the form of Jew-hating weirdos. Prominent among them, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan of the so-called Nation of Islam. Farrakhan has been out and proud, the Jew-hating weirdo for decades. But Democrats still feel the need to bow before him. Anti-Trump leaders such as Tamika Mallory or Linda Sarsour of the Women’s March have embraced Farrakhan and courted his favor. Barack Obama made a call in 2005 when he stepped up policy of The Congressional Black Caucus consulted him. Bill Clinton stood by him at Aretha Franklin’s funeral, tacitly singling out the cult leader. California Democrats Barbara Lee, now running for senator, and Maxine Waters attended his public events Farrakhan and Obama administration veteran Eric Holder posed with him,” Williamson wrote.
“Farrakhan is anti-Semitic. There’s no real debate about it. Eric Holder. Maxine Waters. Others who give status and influence to Farrakhan and his gang. Maybe they’re not anti-Semitic. They’re certainly collaborators.”

Levin continued, highlighting how progressive members of the Democratic Party today continue to spread anti-Semitic comments.
“Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar apparently can’t open her mouth without letting loose an anti-Semitic rant accusing Jews of being unpatriotic. The double loyalty and bribing of US political leaders to support Israel. The Jews, she insists , are pushing for loyalty to a foreigner.Rep. Rashida Tlieb has similar problems and it turns out she contributed to one of Farrakhan’s battery publications,” Williamson wrote. “Members of the Democratic Socialists of America, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is a member, recently called out exterminationist slogans calling for the liquidation of the Jewish state”.
Levin said the Left would rather call former President Trump white supremacist than deal with its own history of anti-Semitism.

“This effort to try to turn conservatism into CCP, into neo-Nazism is really amazing, especially considering the history of the Democratic Party and its embrace of the CCP and slavery and segregation and Jim Crow. The Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, despite its current president, Joe Biden was a racist and segregationist early in his career, opposing integration in public schools, calling it the jungle,” he said.
Levin added that anti-Semitism is spreading and getting “very, very ugly.” “The president of the United States says almost nothing about all of this. The Democratic leadership tolerates anti-Semitism.”
