Mark Levin: Let’s Not Pretend Any of This is Normal

Conservative radio host and litigator Mark Levin wrote Wednesday morning that many of the voting procedures that contributed to the unusual result in the 2020 election were both extraordinary and unacceptable.

In a Facebook post, Levin wrote:

Let’s step back. I’ve been hearing commentators trying to normalize all these changes to voting procedures and court interventions and acting like this has gone on throughout our history or was compelled by the virus. That’s clearly not true. Mail-in voting was pushed hard by the Democrats and they’ve filed scores of lawsuits to change the rules set by state legislatures. Unfortunately, activist courts have been more than happy to accommodate many of them and the Supreme Court failed to put its foot down. No, none of us recall a time like this when so many crucial state counts are delayed. There’s also a legitimate concern about backdoor voter harvesting in some areas. And we know for a fact that cities like Philadelphia have a problematic history. So let’s not pretend that this has been a routine election. Many of the same forces that rejected Trump’s 2016 election have tried to manipulate the system this time as well.

As of the time Levin wrote, the presidential race was undecided, with additional mail-in ballots threatening to tip the balance in the Electoral College narrowly to former Vice President Joe Biden over President Donald Trump.
