Fox guest: ‘Political correctness’ caused Paris attack — and ‘communist’ NYC mayor will cause one here
A military expert on Fox News blamed today’s attack on the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on “political correctness,” and said that similar attacks would occur in the United States thanks to people like New York City’s “communist” Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Tom McInerney, a retired United States Air Force Lieutenant General, told Steve Doocy that “this is a classical radical Islamist attack, Steve, and political correctness is killing us. This is a prime example.”
“We must hold the Arab world and the Muslim world accountable,” he continued, “for this radical Islamic ideology — which, as I’ve said before — is as evil as Nazism, fascism, and communism. It is not a religion.”
Doocy then introduced a clip of the gunman firing, and noted that that “I’ve been getting a lot of tweets from people from Paris who said that most cops choose not even to carry a gun. That, thankfully, is not the case in New York.”
“Thankfully,” McInerney replied, “but with the current leadership in New York — and I’m referring to the mayor, the communist mayor you have up there — that may change.”
“So I think that the world must wake up. We’ve been doing this for almost 13-plus years since 9/11, and I think it’s time to hold the people accountable with global public opinion. Challenge them.”
“What do you know specifically about the growth of radical Islam in France?” Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked.
“Well, France has got approaching 20 percent of a Muslim population,” McInerney answered. “When they get there, they provoke the culture of the nation they are in, and tell them about the culture they want the nation to adopt. That’s where the political correctness comes.”
“That’s the danger, Elisabeth — they become much more assertive, and they do these kinds of things.”
