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.”

Scientist who correctly predicted 2018 midterms says Democrats can win 18 more seats in 2020
The political scientist who correctly predicted the 2018 elections says Democrats left seats on the table in the midterms -- and can win them in 2020.
Rachel Bitecofer, assistant director of the Judy Ford Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virginia, was interviewed by MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on "The Last Word."
"Could you explain to the viewers how it is you determine what it was that actually did win a given congressional district?" O'Donnell asked. "When there is this common belief that, oh, well, the Democrats ran because the Republicans threatened their health care and so some swing voters switched over from Republican voting to democratic voting."
Maddow reveals how Chinese group Falun Gong went from disrupting events to running a shadow campaign for Trump
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Tuesday detailed the remarkable journey of the group Falun Gong shifting from disrupting White House events to dominating the conversation on Facebook.
Maddow hilariously recounted the "major embarrassment" for the George W. Bush White House when a protester interrupted remarks by President of China Hu Jintao.
The protester was credentialed to cover the event for the Epoch Times, which is controlled by Falun Gong.
"Well, NBC News has a scoop out today about that group, about how that paper, the Epoch Times has transformed itself a lot in the Trump era. It’s a real revelation, this reporting from NBC News," Maddow said. "I mean, Epoch Times and its media group, they’ve made themselves into a whole new thing entirely and in a very big way."
Trump’s failed Federal Reserve nominee doesn’t even know what the interest rate was 10 years ago
On Tuesday, CNN's Chris Cuomo invited on Stephen Moore, supply-side economist and President Donald Trump's failed pick for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, to discuss the state of the administration — and Moore made a hilariously wrong remark about interest rates that suggests the country was better off without him.
"There's no greatest economy ever," said Cuomo. "You know these things ... he's doing well. He's not doing better than we've ever seen before, and you guys got the benefits of juicing the economy with this tax cut. Fair point?"
"Let me say this, I think it's a pretty darn good economy," said Moore. "I'll cite a few statistics. It's a pretty darn good one. We have the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years ... and for blacks and Hispanics and women."
