On Thurday night, Mark Levin was on fire as he excoriated the liberal media for dividing this country and undermining American values. Appearing with Sean Hannity on Fox News, the conservative radio host blasted journalists for comparing the President to Hitler and for making Nazi references. Levin attacked: “We're actually fighting the media. We're fighting the Democrats, we're fighting academia, we're fighting Hollywood and all the rest.”
He also had this to say to viewers: “The media in this country, America, is campaigning against you, campaigning against your values, campaigning against your virtue, against the declaration against the Constitution!”
Levin highlighted a new poll showing just how much Americans distrust and blame the media: “And 64 percent of the voters say the press has done more to divide the country. More people think the press has divided the country than the president of the United Sates.” The radio host concluded, “And you have a rare opportunity every now and then to show yourself to stand up and say we're not putting up with this anymore.”
The whole monologue from the Hannity segment is definitely worth listening toand contained Levin’s enlightening historical comparisons. The segment can be found below. Click “expand” to read more.

SEAN HANNITY: Joining us now, he is the host of CRTV's Levin TV. The host of Life, Liberty, and Levin. Wow. You had big ratings this weekend tight here on the Fox News Channel. I call him the great one, Mark Levin. We missed you a couple of weeks and we're glad you are back, my friend. Let's talk the election.
MARK LEVIN: Thank you. Well, you know, it's time for we the people to stand up for ourselves, for our families, for our faith, for our country, for our party, and for our president. You know, the media had interposed themselves in this election, Sean.
We're actually fighting the media. We're fighting the Democrats, we're fighting academia, we're fighting Hollywood and all the rest. And 64 percent of the voters say the press has done more to divide the country. More people think the press has divided the country than the president of the United Sates. And I'm going to tell you why.The word Hitler is very popular with the press. With Joe Scarborough, the word white supremacy is very popular over there at CNN. The word Stalin is now starting to pick up. They consider those of us who support this president and support an American agenda as Nazis. They referred to us to as a racist, as white supremacist.
Every time there's some horrific event they're trying to pin it on us, pin in on our president, pin on our party. It's really time America to push back. Enough is enough. We cannot turn any part of this government over to these radical hard-core Democrats and their mouthpieces in the media.
And I want to give you a few examples here. They talk about the president his tone and the relationship to violence. The president hasn't caused any violence. When Antifais out there beating up people the Marxist militia the media are very passive, rarely say anything.
When Bill Clinton pardoned the FAO and terrorists who murdered four people and injured 44 other people. I don't remember them saying Bill Clinton was contributing to a violent tone in this country.
When Barack Obama commuted the leader of that organization who never repented, I don't remember them bringing that up. When Barack Obama befriended Bill Ayres and Bernadine Dorn of the Weather Underground and the SDS, the bombers domestic terrorist, I remember anybody talking about him and violence and the tone of violence. Do you?
Obama opens an embassy in Cuba, a genocidal police state. He celebrated. Donald Trump moves our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel and he's attacked by fools like Steve Schmidt over on MSNBC.
Now let's talk about immigration briefly. Dwight Eisenhower. He is not considered a white supremacist, does he? He is not considered a racist, does he? Dwight Eisenhower when he became president of the United States he created a program called operation Wetback. That's not me. That was him.
Operation Wetback. What was that? He ordered the military to round up 1.3 million illegal aliens and deport them. And that's exactly what he did and he was supported by the Democratic Party too.
I'll go further. Nineteen sixties. Cesar Chavez, the founder of the United Farm Workers Union. He ordered his members at night to watch the southern border and report illegal aliens coming over the border to then the INS. Nineteen sixty-nine Chavez, Ralph Abernathy, who'd been the confidant of Martin Luther King in 1969 and Walter Mondale. I don't believe he was a racist. They led protests on the southern border against illegal immigration.
I'll go on. The press says Donald Trump is threatening freedom of the press. How so? By calling them out? By challenging them? By exposing them? John Adams, one of our greatest founders, put in place the Sedition Act. The Sedition Act. He actually put some newspapers out of business and put some journalist in prison. Abraham Lincoln put out an executive order. They shut down almost 300 newspapers, and put journalists and editors in prison.
And not -- not only that. The great progressive leader Woodrow Wilson. He had the Sedition Act of 1918, did the same thing, put some journalist in prison and imprisoned some of his opponent.
Donald Trump hasn't done anything like this. He's not rounding up illegal immigrants who are in this country by the hundreds of thousands. He's not shutting down newspapers. He's not putting journalists in prison, yet they refer to him as Hitler and Stalin.
And then we have this policy where we separate children from their parents to come here illegally not because we want to put them in cages like Obama did, but because we want to protect these children from coyotes, from kidnappers. You got to sort them out to figure out who's who since they're here illegally. And they said, well, he's putting them in internment camps.
Actually, it was Franklin Roosevelt who actually put Japanese Americans and Americans of Japanese descent in internment camps. They don't call him Hitler. They don't call him Stalin or anything of the sort. And I'll even go here. They attack our president. They say a womanizer. They bring the Stormy Daniels in front of TV left and right, left and right.
This president has been our president. He's conducted himself in the Oval Office with great acumen. Great acumen. People are laughing. JFK was having affairs constantly in the Oval Office in the White House with an East German German spy, with a mob boss girlfriend, with a 17-year-old intern and he was outdone by LBJ. We don't talk about that stuff. How come? Because our goal you see is to trash the president of the United States.
The media in this country, America, is campaigning against you, campaigning against your values, campaigning against your virtue, against the declaration against the Constitution! And you have a rare opportunity every now and then to show yourself to stand up and say we're not putting up with this anymore. We're going to protect our country. We're going to protect our values, our institutions, our party, and our president, and most of all ourselves.
You're sick of being called Nazis, you're sick of being called racists. You're sick of being called white supremacist then you need to vote. And you need to vote now if you have early voting and you need to vote Tuesday. And you need to be on your own precinct camp and bring out four, five, or six people and make sure you vote. Because here's the deal. If more of us vote, we win. If less of them vote, they lose.
HANNITY: Mark Levin. By the way, I want to say publicly our condolences. I knew your dad. He recently passed away. A great man. Thank you, my friend for being with us.
LEVIN: Thank you. I appreciate it.
