American Marxism


The seven-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, Fox News star, and radio host Mark R. Levin explains how the dangers he warned against in the “timely yet timeless” (David Limbaugh, author of Jesus Is Risen) bestseller Liberty and Tyranny have come to pass.

In 2009, Mark R. Levin galvanized conservatives with his unforgettable manifesto Liberty and Tyranny, by providing a philosophical, historical, and practical framework for halting the liberal assault on Constitution-based values. That book was about standing at the precipice of progressivism’s threat to our freedom and now, over a decade later, we’re fully over that precipice and paying the price.

In American Marxism, Levin explains how the core elements of Marxist ideology are now pervasive in American society and culture—from our schools, the press, and corporations, to Hollywood, the Democratic Party, and the Biden presidency—and how it is often cloaked in deceptive labels like “progressivism,” “democratic socialism,” “social activism,” and more. With his characteristic trenchant analysis, Levin digs into the psychology and tactics of these movements, the widespread brainwashing of students, the anti-American purposes of Critical Race Theory and the Green New Deal, and the escalation of repression and censorship to silence opposing voices and enforce conformity. Levin exposes many of the institutions, intellectuals, scholars, and activists who are leading this revolution, and provides us with some answers and ideas on how to confront them.

As Levin writes: “The counter-revolution to the American Revolution is in full force. And it can no longer be dismissed or ignored for it is devouring our society and culture, swirling around our everyday lives, and ubiquitous in our politics, schools, media, and entertainment.” And, like before, Levin seeks to rally the American people to defend their liberty.

Editorial Reviews

"As usual, Mark Levin pulls no punches. . . . American Marxism is, without question, a very important and valuable book. It is exactly the right book at the right time." -The American Spectator

"In American Marxism, Mark Levin paints a bleak picture of an America under siege, but he offers hope that we can turn this around and inspires us to unite around the noble cause of liberty and the salvation of the greatest nation the world has ever known." -David Limbaugh, Townhall

Mark Rubino
Mr. Levin's best book. Exposes the wicked origins of the Marxist movement in American. This books shines a light on CRT, LATCRT and all the other "progressive" agenda items that are nothing more than regressive Marxist ideology.
Robert E. Taylor
I pray that this is this generations “Common sense”. Every patriotic, freedom loving American should read this. Thank you Mark Levin!
There is an attack on America like never before. Through the academia, the media, and the government bureaucracy there is a major onslaught against democracy and capitalism. What we have is not perfect but it's the best in the world. That's why so many people want to come here. There is a group now that wants to make us like Cuba, North Korea, and China. There is an attack today on free speech, due process, the right to own property and the right to bear arms. We need to educate ourselves as to what is going on before it's too late. Otherwise, the system that we have where everybody has a voice, people get rewarded for their hard work, and you can live life on your terms will go away. This book is a good start towards that education.
If you want to know what is coming... And how it is coming... Mark exposes the instigators by using their own writings... So they either lied then or they are lying now...

Mark shines a light on all the crazy that perpetuates the headlines of today’s media: BLM, Antifa, CRT, “The Squad”, Activists, Socialists, and every sort of Equity you can think of. These have become a collective identity and class consciousness that is the foundation of “American Marxism”. It’s insidious. Levine gives more than most authors. His perspective is well documented and supported as are his suggestions for how to take up the cause to restore democracy to our country and his plan is very specific: BOYCOTT - DIVESTMENT - SANCTIONS - a plan that has been used on the nation of Israel can be applied to various factions within our own country’s business, finance, education and government in order to bring them to heel, to return to sanity. From there, Mark goes on with a detailed plan to rescue education, (both lower and higher), major corporations, climate initiatives and a start with law enforcement and the sheer lack of responsibility on the part of government to take responsibility for charging participants of BLM, Antifa, and other social causes that have killed, destroyed, stolen, burned… Palpable, personal and practical - “American Marxism” is a book to challenge and give hope for the future if we get involved. God Bless America, please?

Short Excerpt Teaser

Chapter One: It's Here CHAPTER ONE IT'S HERE
The counterrevolution to the American Revolution is in full force. And it can no longer be dismissed or ignored, for it is devouring our society and culture, swirling around our everyday lives, and ubiquitous in our politics, schools, media, and entertainment. Once a mostly unrelatable, fringe, and subterranean movement, it is here-it is everywhere. You, your children, and your grandchildren are now immersed in it, and it threatens to destroy the greatest nation ever established, along with your freedom, family, and security. Of course, the primary difference between the counterrevolution and the American Revolution is that the former seeks to destroy American society and impose autocratic rule, and the latter sought to protect American society and institute representative government.

The counterrevolution or movement of which I speak is Marxism. I have written about Marxism at length in two earlier books-Ameritopia and Rediscovering Americanism and the Tyranny of Progressivism-and discuss it regularly on my radio and television shows. There are also untold numbers of books written about Marxism. It is not my purpose to contribute yet another long treatise to the many that exist, nor is it possible given the focus and limitations of this book. But the application and adaption of core Marxist teachings to American society and culture-what I call American Marxism-must be addressed and confronted, lest we are smothered by its modern manifestations. And make no mistake, the situation today is dire.

In America, many Marxists cloak themselves in phrases like "progressives," "Democratic Socialists," "social activists," "community activists," etc., as most Americans remain openly hostile to the name Marxism. They operate under myriad newly minted organizational or identifying nomenclatures, such as "Black Lives Matter" (BLM), "Antifa," "The Squad," etc. And they claim to promote "economic justice," "environmental justice," "racial equity," "gender equity," etc. They have invented new theories, like Critical Race Theory, and phrases and terminologies, linked to or fit into a Marxist construct. Moreover, they claim "the dominant culture" and capitalist system are unjust and inequitable, racist and sexist, colonialist and imperialist, materialistic and destructive of the environment. Of course, the purpose is to tear down and tear apart the nation for a thousand reasons and in a thousand ways, thereby dispiriting and demoralizing the public; undermining the citizenry's confidence in the nation's institutions, traditions, and customs; creating one calamity after another; weakening the nation from within; and ultimately, destroying what we know as American republicanism and capitalism.

However, there should be no mistake that various leaders of this counterrevolution are increasingly outspoken and brazen about who they are, including bands of openly Marxist professors and activists, and they are supported by a core group of zombie-like "woke" followers. Whatever their labels and self-descriptions, the essential characteristics of their beliefs, statements, and policies exhibit core Marxist dogma. Moreover, they occupy our colleges and universities, newsrooms and social media, boardrooms, and entertainment, and their ideas are prominent within the Democratic Party, the Oval Office, and the halls of Congress. Their influence is seen and felt among the mostly witting as well as the unsuspecting, and in news reporting, movies, television shows and commercials, publishing, and sports, as well as teacher training and classroom curriculum throughout America's public school system. They use the tactics of propaganda and indoctrination, and demand conformity and compliance, silencing contrary voices through repressive tactics, such as "the cancel culture," which destroys reputations and careers, censoring and banning mostly patriotic and contrary viewpoints on social media, even including former president Donald Trump, and attacking academic freedom and intellectual interchange in higher education. Indeed, they take aim at all aspects of the culture-historical monuments (including memorials to Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, abolitionist Frederick Douglass, and the 54th Massachusetts black Union regiment), Mark Twain, William Shakespeare, Mr. Potato Head, Dr. Seuss, Disney cartoons, ad infinitum. Pronouns are banned and replaced with nondescript words so as not to offend fifty-eight flavors of gender identification. Past social media posts are scrutinized for early ind...
