Mark Levin Criticizes Democrats for Skipping 'Sound of Freedom' Screening

Prominent conservative media personality Mark Levin criticized Democrats for not attending a Sound of Freedom movie screening, organized by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy last week.

The event featured actor Jim Caviezel, the movie's producer Eduardo Verástegui, and Tim Ballard, an activist fighting against human trafficking, who was portrayed by Caviezel in the film.

Levin expressed his dismay at the lack of attention given to child trafficking. He noted the horrifying situations that children face and criticized the open border policies that he believes allow cartels, kidnappers, and sex traffickers to gain control.

Levin SLAMS Democrats

As an established author and attorney, Levin expressed his concern that thousands of children are disappearing, and the government seems unable to monitor the situation.

Levin specifically called out the Biden administration and the Democrats for their handling of the border issue, accusing them of seeking power and disregarding the law. He questioned their absence at the screening, pointing out that the impacts of their actions, or lack thereof, are being revealed through issues like drug cartels exploiting the open border.

An insider from the Republican-led Congress indicated that all House members were invited to the screening, but no Democrats attended. After the event, McCarthy praised the screening and the movie, sharing his reasons for selecting Sound of Freedom for the second congressional movie night.

In McCarthy's view, the movie was compelling, shedding light on the horrifying realities of child trafficking. He advocated for more action against this heinous crime.

On Twitter, McCarthy revealed that he initiated bipartisan movie nights to foster a more inclusive environment in Congress.

The screening was attended by notable figures, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp, Christian recording artist Danny Gokey, and former NBA player Enes Kanter Freedom.

Since its premiere on July 4, the film has amassed around $124 million in box office earnings, outpacing movies like Mission Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One, as per Forbes.
