On Sunday, multiple New York Times bestselling author and syndicated radio host Mark Levin packed Bookends Bookstore in Ridgewood, New Jersey, with fans eager to get a signed copy of his latest book Plunder and Deceit.
The book has received widespread praise for its incisive look at the breakdown of our governmental system as well as the perverse mentality that government dependency has spawned for Americans who would never willingly impoverish their children yet do so in the name of statism.
According to one attendee at the Sunday book signing, Levin signed over 1000 books. Pictures showed large crowds lined up both inside and outside the store. Levin has packed events for the last several weeks—he is scheduled to speak at the Reagan Library on August 16 and, according to sources familiar with the event, the event sold out of all 1,500 tickets within minutes of tickets becoming available.
Levin’s recent critique of Fox News’s Thursday night Republican presidential debate has drawn intense scrutiny. Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday radio with host Stephen K. Bannon, Levin explained, “they took advantage of us, they took advantage of the audience… This isn’t a matter of who I support but a matter of basic fairness and what a debate is to be like.”
