Levin: 'When we lose our history, we're going to lose our country'

Tuesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin gave the history of the Battle of Midway, fought during World War II almost entirely with aircraft, June 3-6, 1942. Midway, together with the Battle of Guadalcanal, ended the threat of Japanese invasion in the Pacific.

"I was never taught about these various wars, except at a surface level, when I was in public school, and that's, you know, several decades ago," Levin said. "And I suspect it's even less significant today in the classroom. And when we lose our history, we're going to lose our country."

"This is American history: Battle after battle, hero after hero, defending this country, defending its people. And then I listen to the talk today, about people who've never served — some who have served, but most who haven't — trashing our country from universities and colleges. Trashing our country in the pages of the Democrat party-press. Oh, they say they support the military, but they have a funny way of showing it. Kaepernick — and others — protesting. Protesting what? They haven't sacrificed a damn thing."

Listen:

Levin read from an article by BlazeTV congressional correspondent Nate Madden about how the brutality of Tiananmen Square continues in China today.

"Thirty years ago today: China. Midway: Seventy-seven years ago today. America. Two different systems, two different countries, two different governments. I just wish we appreciated ours a lot more."
