Mark Levin Calls Schumer a ‘Disgrace,’ Says ‘Vast Majority’ of Americans Support Israel

During his Sunday broadcast of “Life, Liberty & Levin,” FNC host Mark Levin said the “totalitarian” Democratic Party, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), was wrong to criticize Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s handling of Hamas and its terror attack on southern Israel from Gaza

Levin told his viewers that despite Schumer’s comments and others from the Biden administration, the vast majority of Americans support Israel.

Partial transcript as follows:

MARK LEVIN: Chuck Schumer goes to the floor of the Senate this week, you’ve heard about it. Now I’m going to respond to this because this is more evidence of what I’m talking about. Let’s take a listen. Go.


SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): The fourth major obstacle to peace is Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

As a lifelong supporter of Israel, it has become clear to me the Netanyahu coalition no longer fits the needs of Israel after October 7.

The world has changed radically since then and the Israeli people are being stifled right now by a governing vision that is stuck in the past.

Five months into this conflict, it is clear that Israelis need to take stock of the situation and ask, must we change course?

At this critical juncture, I believe a new election is the only way to allow for a healthy and open decision-making process about the future of Israel.


LEVIN: He says a lot more. We’re not going to play at all. He tells the Israelis that if they don’t have a form of coup or a new election to rid themselves of the current government, which they elected, now, once this war is over, the United States will take over and will reengineer the Middle East and determine what the Middle East will look like.

What he means by that is we will impose a two-state solution. As I speak, almost 80 percent of the Israelis oppose a two-state solution for obvious reasons that all of us know.

You will have an Iranian client state, they’ll have access to missiles, they will have access to jet fighters, they’ll have access to whatever they want and nobody will stop them. Certainly not Biden, and Schumer, and Blinken.

And here you have on the floor of the Senate, I must say, a Jewish senator who represents the largest population of Jews in the United States. What the hell is going on?

You have a Secretary of State who was born Jewish. What the hell is going on?

You have one of the most obsessed Israel haters at “The New York Times,” Thomas Friedman, born a Jew.

And of course, you have the ownership of “The New York Times,” which was Jewish, and I think through intermarriage is Lutheran or something like that.

Of course, it’s not just them, plenty of Gentiles involved. But I want to read something to you very quickly.

“Abandonment of the Jews: America and the Holocaust” by David S. Wyman.

David S. Wyman was a Christian who was appalled at what he saw at “The New York Times” and had the guts to call them out. “The New York Times” at the time was owned by the Sulzberger family, still is. These are people whose ancestry, German and Jewish, but they were in the tank for Franklin Roosevelt.

Franklin Roosevelt didn’t want a lot of reporting about the Holocaust, because he might actually have to do something about it. Worse, his State Department put caps on the amount of Jews who would be brought into the United States or could escaped to the United States, who were facing sure extermination, and that cap was way below the legal cap that Congress had set.

Only about 200,000 Jews came to the United States during the course of the Holocaust when hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of thousands more were authorized by Congress. The State Department, the same State Department that Blinken runs with Islamist and others in there, that State Department was loaded with antisemites, and Franklin Roosevelt knew it.

And you had Franklin Roosevelt as the hero of the Democratic Party. He is Chuck Schumer’s hero. He is Biden’s hero. Everybody wants to be Franklin Roosevelt. Really interesting, isn’t it?

Here’s what he says in the beginning of his book: “Parts of this book are critical the American Jewish leadership in the Holocaust era. The policies of Zionist leaders are particularly questioned, in part because their movement held the greatest potential for effective Jewish action. This criticism is made reluctantly, yet it must be included if the report is to be honest and objective. Several of those leaders have since criticized their own failures in the face of the catastrophe.”

What I’m doing tonight could be considered controversial and provocative. It’s not intended to be. Just honest.

Each of you have your own faith or not. Some of you are Catholic, and you shake your head at what Biden does. He’s the most aggressive, pro-abortion, anti-life president in our history. Yet he is Catholic, same with Nancy Pelosi. What’s that all about?

And we can go down the list, right?

Well, my theory is this. You can be born a Catholic, but it doesn’t mean that you’re a faithful practicing Catholic. You can be born a Jew and therefore ethnically a Jew, but you’re not a religious Jew. And by that, I don’t mean you have to be an Orthodox Jew, you don’t really practice the faith or maybe you show up at the High Holy Days and get a sugar cookie and some, you know, grape juice, but you’re not really into the religion.

And so you have these conflicts, whether it’s the Catholic Church, other religions of faith and then Judaism, so you can’t paint with a broad brush. You have what I call the Ethnic Jews, the Schumers; you have reprobates, Marxists like Bernie Sanders who actually undermines Judaism in the state of Israel; and then you have Jews who are both ethnic, born Jews, and are practicing Jews.

The ethnic Jews like Schumer, like Thomas Friedman at “The New York Times,” like Antony Blinken at the State Department despise the religious Jews. They despise the Orthodox Jews, the more conservative Jews, just like in Catholicism, and I’m not picking on any faith. I’m just giving it as an example, where the pro-abortion, anti-life radicals, who are Catholic, despise the preaching of the Catholic Church when it comes to abortion. That in my view is what’s going on.

Abandonment of the Jews is what you heard when Chuck Schumer took the floor of the United States Senate. He didn’t say a word to Biden and his party that we shouldn’t be funding Iran, they just sent them another $10 billion indirectly, but sent it to them the same day Chuck Schumer gets to the floor and trashes the Israeli government.

Thomas Friedman has written so many articles trashing the Israeli government, trashing Benjamin Netanyahu. He is mentally unhinged and obsessed on the issue of Netanyahu as he is with other Israelis who actually represent their people.

But this is “The New York Times.” The Holocaust denying, the Holocaust covering up “New York Times” that did it for politics, as it is doing today. Biden? Biden is no supporter of Israel. Biden supports Israel and prime ministers when they accede to his demands. When he get them to come to him on bended knee. He did the same thing that Menachem Begin that he is doing to Bibi Netanyahu, yet he kowtows to the leaders of Iran, the bloodthirsty murderers who are trying to build a nuclear weapon, and they’re going to build it, and they’re going to have it. Thanks to Biden, and Blinken and Austin and the rest of this administration, because we’re funding it.

Iran has gotten more money directly and indirectly, as a result of this administration’s policies than Ukraine — than Ukraine. We fight over $14 billion or $17 billion of military aid to Israel. He has given over $100 billion in aid to Iran. What have they done with it? They build up their military and their armaments. They have funded Hamas, the Houthis, Hezbollah, the PLO.

So Biden is funding terrorism. Biden is funding a regime that’s building nuclear weapons, while he’s putting his foot on the throat of the Israeli people and the Israeli government. I don’t care what he says in public.

You know, Israel is running out of bombs and ammunition. They’re trying to husband them now in case they have to go to war with Hezbollah. What’s that all about? That is slime what this country this administration is doing to Israel and the Israeli people. And when Schumer goes to the floor of the Senate, and he’s telling — he is telling the Israeli people I am directing you, as Biden has, as Harris has, as Blinken, as Friedman has, to overthrow your government, to dislodge your commander-in-chief in the middle of a war they’re winning. I am telling you, you do this, I’m telling you, you accept a two-state solution whether you like it or not or we will impose it from afar. We’re going to organize the Arab countries, they are. We are going to organize the European countries, they are — against you, Israel, little tiny Israel, the only force that’s defending the world from Iran and the terrorists.

That’s exactly what they’re doing. This isn’t about Bibi Netanyahu, anybody could be prime minister who stands up to this tyranny, and they’ll still try to undermine them. That’s the history, abandonment of the Jews. Hitler’s American friends right here, “The Third Reich,” “The Ivory Tower,” what’s going on our colleges and universities, “Buried by the Times,” Mr. Friedman, that’s you. “Beyond Belief,” Biden, Schumer and all the rest of you. that’s who you are.

Never again, Jewish people used to say, but when people like Schumer and Blinken and Friedman, never again, it is again, it’s today. The enemy is not Benjamin Netanyahu. The enemy is not the state of Israel. The Israeli people are not our enemy. They are our friends, they are allies. They have supported us every way as we have supported them.

Iran is the enemy. Hamas is the enemy. The Houthis, Hezbollah. The terrorists are the enemy. And the Democratic Party is the enemy, too. The enemy within here in the United States. They’re trying to imprison Donald Trump and they’re trying to push a coup in Israel, because the Democratic Party doesn’t believe in honest differences.

The Democratic Party doesn’t believe in real elections. The Democratic Party doesn’t believe in the democratic system. The Democratic Party has turned autocratic, totalitarian. That’s what it is.

And so now their mission is to take out the two world leaders and will be world leaders who they oppose, not to try and defeat them honorably through an election, but destroy them. In Trump’s case bankrupt him, have him defending himself multiple courts on 91 phony charges, hoping to put him in prison so Biden has a clear field and can’t lose, because the American people are turning on him and Bibi Netanyahu, his policies have the massive support of a united Israel that’s trying to protect itself and defend itself while it’s surrounded.

They’re not interested in taking out their prime minister at the direction of Chuck Schumer. Chuck Schumer who is elected a senator from New York, a Democrat state and he’s worried about AOC and his left-wing flank and he will sell out the state of Israel for power. He will sell out the United States for power.

The Democratic Party is about the Democratic Party. It’s about power, power, and power.

The Democratic Party has more in common with various communist and fascistic parties all over the world. That’s the model, threatening parents, threatening prolifers, threatening the Catholic Church, open borders to change the citizenry.

They have their own state run media at CNN and MSNBC, at “The New York Times” and “The Washington Post.” This is autocracy. This is tyranny.

And so what Joe Biden has done to the United States, they are now trying to do to the state of Israel and one friend of mine said to me the other day, it pays to be an enemy of Joe Biden, not an ally when it comes to foreign policy, and they couldn’t be more accurate.

Chuck Schumer, you are a disgrace as an American, and I want the Israeli people to know and every survey has shown it, the vast majority of the American people support you, not the Democratic Party, not Biden, and not Schumer. They are trying to undermine you as they fund and empower the terrorists. The terrorists and Iran.
