Every night, Fox News personalities like Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham say ridiculous things. But radio host Mark Levin often out crazies all of them.
This happened again recently when Levin talked about “freedom” during a recent broadcast. According to the Fox host, the country is less free than it was prior to the American revolution.
Levin told viewers:
“Look at representation. Do we have representation today? Have you tried to meet your member of Congress lately? It’s impossible, and if you meet your representative, what do you tell them? They are passing 2,700 pages of omnibus spending bills in the middle of the night. You have no idea what’s in those bills. That’s less liberty than you had when we didn’t have representation, because what happens here is that you get to vote, but you don’t get to know anything. Yes, we were freer before the American Revolution than we are today.”
There was plenty of criticism for Levin’s ridiculous take, but the best came from author Brynn Tannehill who tweeted, “Maybe. If you leave out slaves. And women. And Native Americans getting smallpox blankets. And indentured servants. You guys just want to go back to that, don’t you?”
If you leave out slaves.
And Native Americans getting smallpox blankets.
And indentured servants.
You guys just want to go back to that, don't you?
