During the most recent broadcast of Fox News’ Life, Liberty & Levin, host Mark Levin made the case that American support in Ukraine is similar to the French’s support of America during the Revolutionary War.

“We would not have won the American Revolution without the help of the French,” he argued Sunday on “Life Liberty & Levin.” “So starting in 1778, right to the end of the Revolutionary War, the French gave us support. Ninety percent of all, what I’ll call bullets, fired during the War of Independence were manufactured by the French.”
“[Ukraine] did not attack Russia. They have not invaded Russia. They have not set up concentration camps in Ukraine where they’re bringing Russian children and women. They’ve not entered Russia and have committed acts of systemic torture, which the Russians have to the Ukrainians– gang rape, hanging people from ceilings and bridges, brutal genital castration and electric shock treatment, decapitation, burning people alive, crushing their faces with sledgehammers, mass graves,” he said.
Levin continued, “This is from a U.N. report. And the U.N. is hardly in the back pocket of the United States and Ukraine. And it just came out. And of course, the Russians are trying to freeze the Ukrainians by hitting energy sources. They’re trying to level their apartment buildings. Twenty-five percent of the Ukrainian population has had to flee as refugees. And as I said, many are being trained in Russia and being enslaved, tortured and otherwise brutalized. Ukraine isn’t doing any of that.”
“I am perplexed by those who want you to believe and who believe you are stupid– that this is a war here in the United States, between the intellectual elites in Washington and everybody else, we the people. And it’s funny that so many people who say this went to private schools and Ivy League schools and they never went to war while they’re pointing fingers at everybody else,” Levin said.
He concludes, “It’s time for leaders to step up. I don’t care what they say on MSNBC and CNN. This is not a battle between RINOs and the populists, whatever that means. And they can’t even define themselves. This is a battle between patriots and conservatives and pacifists of both parties.”
