Mark Levin criticizes Al Franken for comparing America to 1930s Germany
| News Today | Fox News
Fox News host Mark Levin slammed comedian and former Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., for comparing the United States to Nazi Germany, telling ‘Jesse Watters Primetime’ that leftists complain just not succeeding.
Host Jesse Watters noted that Franken had recently taken to the radio airwaves to lament the failure of left-leaning Democrats to pass an electoral federalization bill, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, and reported that Franken was upset that Republicans could take over Congress and possibly the White House in 2024.
“It’s serious, and I just think other people feel it, it’s like, I don’t know, Germany in 1933,” Franken said.
“And I’m just like, in a tavern and looking over the other table and there’s guys in black boots and Nazi uniforms, and I’m like, ‘Hmm. It looks bad, I wonder how bad it can go. “
Levin, who noted he was Jewish, told Watters that Franken’s comments were incredibly offensive and ignorant.
“The idea that he would liken it to Nazism, we’re so straying from our history,” the ‘Life, Liberty & Levin’ host said.
“Last week was the 80th anniversary of when Nazi leaders came together to plan the Final Solution. How many TV shows even mentioned it? None that I know of,” he added, referring to the Nazi regime’s round table on how to carry out their genocidal plans.
“I don’t remember Al Franken commenting on that. I don’t remember a Memorial Day on the floor of Congress about that. And I don’t remember all of these news anchors mentioning that. So I’m going to mention it now,” he said.
“There are people watching this program, some of whom are survivors of the Holocaust, some of whom had relatives in the Holocaust,” Levin said.
Levin said Democrats control every lever of power in America at the federal level, and Franken is intentionally blatantly attacking his party’s failures.
“[Franken made the comments because] the Democratic Party controls every aspect of this government and it doesn’t get everything it wants? he asked rhetorically. “The Democratic Party wants to fundamentally transform this country, and the American people have said, no, they don’t. .”
Levin suggested Franken consider voter ID laws an Election Day version of “vaccine passports,” which are now enforced by executive order in the District of Columbia, Philadelphia, New York and Los Angeles.

“They’re talking about the right to vote. It’s not about the right to vote. You have the right to vote, but you don’t have the right to vote while you’re watching TV or while you’re in the kitchen or while you’re driving your car or whatever. You have the right to vote by getting up, walking in, voting and proving that you are who you are,” he said.
Levin also called the continued looting of train cars on Union-Pacific tracks in Los Angeles a direct result of Democrats’ “decriminalization” moves.
“Mayor after mayor who tolerates this stuff, who decriminalizes even minor offences, who don’t believe in jailing – when your prosecutors are elected, who prosecute certain people who commit very minor offenses, but then allow others go who commit crimes of moral turpitude and so on, that’s what you get,” he said.
“When Ronald Reagan was Governor of California, none of this bullshit was happening in LA or anywhere else for that matter.”
