Thursday on his nationally syndicated radio program, LevinTV host Mark Levin discussed conservatives’ shock when actor Mark Duplass, who had previously suggested his friends follow Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro, apologized for his “disaster” of a tweet.
Levin explained that this behavior is characteristic of the utopian Left and should not be a surprise.
“What is all the hubbub about? I mean, we conservatives, we understand this, don’t we? We understand the totalitarian mindset of the Left. … Why is this specific instance so shocking, when it goes on every day and has gone on every day for years, in fact for decades? To not understand this is not to understand progressivism and the totalitarian mindset,” Levin said.
“They embrace this statism, this utopianism, and so the individual has to be beaten to a pulp. Anybody with an independent thought or contrary thought has to be smeared.”
“I’m kind of shocked that people are surprised by this. Fundamentally, they do not understand progressivism. Progressivism is a form of tyranny, I talk about it all the time, with a totalitarian mindset. ... Of course they’re attacking you! They’ve attacked me and they attack anybody else who dares to stand up and speak to liberty — true liberty.”
