MARK LEVIN (HOST): You can begin to see the Bernie Sanders of the world and Bernie Sanders himself coming to the defense of Putin and Russia, much like the the neo-left within the Republican Party.
So, these these head games, these games of illogic that people like Bernie Sanders play as if they are spokesman for the old Soviets, but now spokesman for Putin -- "Hey, you have the Monroe Doctrine" and so forth -- It's really unbelievable. Our system, don't we believe it's superior? Don't we believe it's freer? I mean, who cares if there's not an moral equivalence? Because there isn't one. Go ahead.
And by the way, I could hear this guy, quite frankly -- I want Media Matters to pick this up, and Mediaite.
I can hear this guy prior to the rise the Third Reich talking about "Well, don't the Germans have a right to their sphere of influence? I mean, it's just Austria, it's just Czechoslovakia, it's just Poland and all -- they need their sphere of influence." This is the appeasement.
This is this the -- this is the attitude of the Neville Chamberlains and worse.
