Mark Levin, host of ‘Life, Liberty, and Levin’ spoke with Pete Hegseth, co-host of ‘Fox & Friends Weekend’, about the withdrawal of classrooms from the teachers’ union.
After discussing the publication of Levin’s latest book, American Marxism, Hegseth asked Levin how to envision solutions to the growing threat of Marxism in America today, especially as they have been anchored in teachers’ unions for decades.
Levin, himself a former school board member, replied that his greatest hope is to organize people who want change.
LEVIN TALKS ABOUT AMERICAN MARXISM: APPEAL TO “PEOPLE WHO TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR OWN LIFE”
“My goal is to mobilize, to gather together, to network so that we have a national movement like we did with the Tea Party movement or the Reagan revolution or the Trump revolution,” said Levin .
Levin compared recent movements against critical racial theory to the original revolutionaries like Thomas Paine, who organized themselves on the basis of the written word in pamphlets. He also acknowledged that while public schools should be public, many do not know what is going on in the classrooms.
“These schools are ours. They are called public schools. They are state schools. We pay the salaries. We pay medical care and pensions. We ultimately pay the union dues. We pay for the classrooms. We pay for the stewards and we have no say at all, “Levin said.” We’re not even sure what’s going on in these classrooms and they won’t tell us. “
Levin reminded Hegseth of his suggestion to put cameras in the classrooms. Both Hegseth and Levin agreed that if cops and courtrooms have cameras, so should classrooms.
Ultimately, Levin stressed the need to “hot on the heels” of teachers’ unions using techniques such as the Freedom of Information Act or other legal means.
“I say it is time we got on their heels, implemented the Freedom of Information Act, put these legal groups across the country or a local litigation attorney in place,” Levin said. “Let’s go in there. Let’s find out what’s going on. Let’s push the unions back.”

As a past president of the Landmark Legal Foundation, Levin recognized his experience in this area and recognized many teacher unions as “appendages of the Democratic Party”.
Still, Levin remained optimistic about his viewers’ ability to take action and force change.
“There are things we can do. We still have the opportunity to exercise our freedom to talk to each other, to network,” he said.
