Talk radio host and author Mark Levin argued Univision and Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos was a “pretend journalist” “racialist,” “Balkanizer” on Wednesday’s broadcast of “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
Levin said, “I was very proud of what Donald Trump did. Jorge Ramos is a bully. And Jorge Ramos tries to control events. Jorge Ramos jumped the line there. He wasn’t — it wasn’t his turn to ask questions. And he would have been able to ask questions. But look, Ramos is a fanatic, he’s obnoxious, he’s a pretend journalist. He’s running around today saying that he’s defending the First Amendment, really? Since when are hecklers defending the First Amendment? He’s got an agenda and he advances it. You know, Sean, I did a little checking. About three years ago, he was named one of the 100 biggest leaders or movers by TIME Magazine. And he wrote about himself and he said, among other things, ‘But I’ve never ceased to be Mexican. I have two passports, and I vote in elections in both countries. I’m deeply proud of this privileged duality. The greatest thing about america is its embrace of diversity.’ No, the best thing about America is America, Mr. Ramos. Now america’s immigration system isn’t the problem. Mexico’s immigration system is the problem. Latin America’s immigration system is the problem. Their governments are the problem. Why are they exporting their next generation into America, Mr. Ramos?”
Levin also argued that Mexico’s immigration laws are much tougher than the US’ and said Ramos was “taking advantage of this country.” Levin further accused Ramos of being a “Balkanizer” and a “racialist.”
