Mark Levin has authored 10 bestselling books over the past 16 years related to politics, current events, and policy issues. His latest book, The Democrat Party Hates America lays out a devastating argument that the Democratic Party is responsible for much of the division the country faces today. But Levin demonstrates this is nothing new for the Democrats because its very origin was predicated on hatred.
The Democrat Party Hates America
Levin provides a detailed history of the Democratic Party since the Civil War and its shifting positions and language over time. He observes party leaders like Barack Obama and Joe Biden have mastered political tactics to gain power while attacking, demonizing and even imprisoning critics. At its core, the book warns of the longstanding Democrat embrace of hatred as its center, from Slavery to Marxism.
In spite of the fact that 95% of Americans approve of interracial marriages, Democrats continuously amplify racial divisions in their pursuit of power. “Anti-Racism”, Ibram Kendi’s canonical model embraced by the Left, espouses even more racism as an antidote. Democrat leaders from Obama to Hillary Clinton have embraced the policies of Saul Alinsky, the self-described “revolutionary” who sought the balkanization and division of American society. And along the way, Democrats since the Obama era have continuously demonized law enforcement, with efforts like “Defund the Police” and “Autonomous Zones” in liberal cities that have led to a complete breakdown of civil order in many inner cities.
And this is not a recent development. As Levin points out, the Democrat Party has waged a century-long war on America’s founding documents. The Declaration of Independence was rejected by President Woodrow Wilson, who led the first progressive (and deeply racist) administration in American history. Similarly, Franklin Delano Roosevelt threatened to pack the Supreme Court after his collectivist programs were initially rejected. Duly intimidated, the Justices then rubberstamped a long list of egregiously unconstitutional programs that helped build the modern welfare state.
Today the party has leaned even further into its totalitarian instincts and racist roots. It threatens and intimidates members of the Supreme Court; it seeks to destroy the Electoral College; it wants to industrialize election fraud at the national level; and it aims to destroy the Senate’s longstanding filibuster rule in order to jam through unpopular legislation. These are just a few of the party’s attacks on America’s foundational pillars.
