Medal Of Honor Recipient Dakota Meyer: Political Correctness Hurts Ability To Combat Terrorism
Dakota Meyer says political correctness is hurting the United States’ ability to combat terrorism
Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer appeared as a guest on Fox and Friends on Monday morning in response to Saturday’s London terrorist attack where seven people were killed and 48 others were injured.
Meyer said that there is a disconnect between what bureaucrats are doing and what needs to be done to combat terrorism.
“This is going to continue until we do something to stop it,” Meyer said.
“You can’t go in your house and hide,” he said, adding he is thankful that bureaucrats that live in a “fantasy world” are not the ones “in charge of our country.”
“We have a man there [President Donald Trump] who is not a bureaucrat … who’s going to be there to protect our country and puts our country first,” Meyer said.
Meyer praised the resiliency of the American people following terrorist attacks on American soil.
“Don’t underestimate who we are, or our resiliency to fight, or our resiliency to go after freedom,” Meyer said.
“You’ve got plenty of men and women who will wear the nation’s cloth and who are willing to go over and do this a**-kicking that needs to be done,” Meyer added.
He said political correctness is undermining the ability to combat terrorism.
“The last administration wouldn’t even call this radical Islam,” Meyer said. “This isn’t a war on Muslims, Christians. It’s not a war on one religion. This is a war on terrorism.”
