Conservative talker Mark Levin opened Sunday’s broadcast of FNC’s “Life, Liberty & Levin” with a monologue about what it meant to be “America First,” which he argued could be defined by the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
Levin has defined “America First” as it pertained to foreign policy, which he said meant having the “biggest kickass military” and not being afraid to use it, especially regarding the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
LEVIN: What does it mean when we say I’m an American Firster? I believe in America First. What does that mean? Does anybody know?
A lot of people throw around that phrase and they really don’t believe in America First. They use that as a bumper sticker slogan to justify their ideological approach to governance, and society, and our culture, and a little more.
I assume most countries think that they are fill-in-the blank Firsters — Russia, Communist China, the terrorist regime in Iran, and so forth, and so on. So what does this get us when we say we’re for America First? What is a nationalist? Somebody who believes in America First, is that right?
What is a populist? Somebody who believes in We, the People?
Now, I would like to spend a few hours on this, but I don’t have a few hours. So, let me spend a little bit of time and then you’ll understand where I’m going with this.
I’m not a nationalist. I have in front of me, the pocket edition of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. The word “nationalist” cannot be found in either the Declaration or the Constitution. Why is this? Because the people who founded your country, and the people, the framers of your Constitution were not nationalists. They were Americans. They were yanks. They created and believed in Americanism.
