Former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie urged pop star Katy Perry to hold a concert in Syria since she wants to “hug it out” with Islamic State terrorists.
Appearing as a guest on Fox News on Thursday, Higbie said, “[g]o to hell, Katy Perry. Hold one of your concerts in Syria and see how that goes.”
“These people fundamentally don’t understand what’s going on here,” Higbie added. “They don’t understand any of this – and they don’t want to understand, too. And that’s why I’m so strong against these celebrities who speak out, saying ‘Oh, we can fight this through love, it’s not really violent, they don’t really mean it.’ ”
“We’re putting the political correctness of the Islamic culture over the lives of our citizens – and we need to stop that immediately,” Higbie said.
During a recent interview on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show radio, Perry said that the world needs to “co-exist” with “no borders” and “no barriers.”
“I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other and like, no barriers, no borders, like we all need to just co-exist,” Perry said, following the Manchester Arena terrorist attack that killed 22 people and injured another 59.
Higbie doubled down on his comments to the Daily Caller.
“The problem is that Katy Perry lives in a bubble,” Higbie said. “She influences millions of young children who believe everything that comes out of her mouth. It’s irresponsible of her to say something like this, when she has no understanding of the situation. Open borders would be a disaster.”
