Fox News host Mark Levin set his sights on the all-powerful teachers’ unions in the country while discussing the release of his latest book, “American Marxism,”
Joined by colleague Pete Hegseth, Levin spoke about what he saw as solutions to the growing threat of Marxism in America today.
“My goal is to galvanize us, to rally us, to network us,” he said, “so we have a national movement as we did with the Tea Party movement. Or the Reagan revolution, or the Trump revolution.”
Citing Thomas Payne and his historic pamphlets, Levin talked about spreading the word “from dinner table to dinner table, pub to pub, school to school.”
“That is what I hope will be done. Let’s look at our public schools,” he said. “We own these schools. They’re called public schools. They are government schools. We pay the salaries. We pay the medical care and the pensions. We pay the dues ultimately for the unions. We pay for the classrooms. We pay for the building. We pay for the administrators, and we have no say whatsoever.”
“We’re not even sure what’s going on in these classrooms, and they won’t tell us,” Levin continued.

Highlighting the teachers’ unions, Levin insisted that they “are part of the American Marxist movement,” which drew agreement from Hegseth.
“They’ve announced that, regardless of what parents think, they are pushing Critical Race Theory, they are pushing the transitional model, they are pushing whatever the hell they want,” he said.
Levin then stressed that it’s time to put teachers’ unions “on their heels,” using the Freedom of Information Act and other legal means as techniques.
Pointing to how teachers are hired and promoted, and what is in their employment contracts, the Fox News host said this is information the public should have and that FOIA requests can be used here.
“I’m saying it’s time for us to put them on their heels, use the Freedom of Information Act, use these legal groups across the country or a local litigator,” Levin said. “Let’s get in there. Let’s find out what’s going on. Let’s push back against the unions.”
Levin also spoke about filing IRS complaints on the National Education Association, which he called “a political institution, an appendage of the Democratic Party that’s pushing all these American Marxist movements,” and the American Federation of Teachers, and challenge their tax status.
In a pivot to cameras in the classroom, Levin said that because of the pandemic and the use of Zoom to hold class, Americans got a glimpse of what is going on at school and were shocked.
He pointed out that police officers have cameras, as do courtrooms, to ask why not schools too?
“The unions will fight it, but to hell with the unions,” Levin declared.
