Fox News host Mark Levin explained what "America first" means to him, Sunday, by debunking the notion that our founders were "nationalists."
The "Life, Liberty & Levin" host said how the word "nationalist" cannot be found in our founding documents because the founders and framers "believed in Americanism," guided by "natural law and rights," not nationalism" or "populism."
"The Tenth Amendment rejects nationalism. It’s federalism. Talks about state sovereignty. Why do we have a Ninth Amendment? Have you read that one lately? It talks about individual liberty, it is in my view, a reflection of the Declaration. They put it right there in the Ninth Amendment. That is your protection. Nationalism strikes me as an all powerful, centralized federal government. Right? I am not a nationalist."
"There’s a fusion there. The one outright hates the country, the American Marxist, trying to destroy it from within. The other says ‘I love the country so much, we have to isolate it from everything and everything else.’ Really?" he explained.
Instead, Levin argued, "America first" means responding to global atrocities like Russia's war with Ukraine, to stop another world war from happening.
"America means embracing capitalism but not selling to the enemy or giving to the enemy weapons they will sure as hell use against us… And Americanism means to me when you see mass graves in Ukraine, now, 9,000, when you see people being slaughtered by a monster and a war machine that is imperialistic, that if they have their way … will light the fuse with its allies in communist China in terrorist Iran, in North Korea … really creating a true world war."
"America first doesn't mean putting your head in the sand and pretending otherwise. You want to protect your children from war? You stand up now," he urged.

Finally, Levin called for Americans to follow the principles outlined in our Constitution and Declaration of Independence and reject “dangerous ideologies” like nationalism and Marxism.
Mark Levin: I believe in ‘America First’
Mark Levin breaks down what it means for someone to believe in ‘America First.’
To Levin, America First means America first to experience incoming ICBMs.
Levin admits he supports Nazis, child trafficking,
naked piano penis-players, sexual enslavement,
money laundering, child rape, adrenochrome selling,
and secret biowarfare made to enrich a few corrupt
Congressional families and China.
Thank God for Mark Levin. We need him to debate that ***hole Tucker who is turning “America First” into “Putin First.”
Well stated Great One
What’s wrong with nationalism?
Levin doesn’t support fairy tales.
Nationalists usually end up wanting to impose there nationalism on other nations. Like Hitler and the latest example putin.
Maybe Levin could tell us why he is sticking his own head where he is.
One thing you have to give the America-hating Democrats credit for, is picking issues that they know will divide the opposition.
The great thing about America is that you get to be an idiot and still make millions of dollars.
where did he admit that?
Oh that’s rich. Mark Levin gets to decide what America first means and instantly throws it to neo conservative ideology. Trump wanted out of Syria, and fast! The neo cons were furious. How could you abandon the Kurds, they cried. Turkey bombs thr Kurds a few years later. Crickets. As long as they get to play with their latest weapons of war they are happy. America first had nothing to do with intervention in Ukraine. Sheesh.
Very well stated by Mr. Levin.
Now, he may want to remove that omnipresent Lincoln image from hovering over his head on his television show.
Lincoln didn’t believe in the Tenth Amendment.
I don’t see him rejecting nationalism here. Certainly rejecting Marx.
I would see him rejecting extreme isolationism, akin to those who wouldn’t have bothered with Hitler bc he was a “European problem.”
He specifically rejects direct military engagement in Ukraine. No American soldiers there.
He supports very robust aid.
I think that’s wise. Helps keep European problems European.
You know better than that. How silly.
Textbook leftist speak. Jacksonian foriegn policy does not go looking to perfect the World, that is Hamiltonian nonsence. We only fight if we are deeply threatened. We don’t fight wars for democracy.
