A Texan sheriff went on an online rant about Muslims and the "left" in reaction to a terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena in England on May 22 (video below).
"I've never shied away from telling you my beliefs or how I feel about things," Sheriff Tracy Murphree of the Denton County Sheriff's Office told KTVT. "I'm not politically correct."
Murphree wrote about the attack on Facebook:
Pay attention to what you see in Manchester England tonight. Pay attention to what is happening in Europe. This is what happens when you disarm your citizens. When you open your borders without the proper vetting. When you allow political correctness to dictate how you respond to an enemy that wants to kill you.
When you allow these radicals to travel to Afghanistan and Iran and simply let them back in. When you give up your city’s and your neighborhoods to a religious ideology that says you must convert or die. A ideology that treats women as property, kills gays and women and Christians [sic] with complete impunity.
The left tells us we must submit and accept these radical beliefs and bend over backwards to make sure we don’t hurt anybody’s feelings. The left wants to cater to the very group that would kill every group they claim to support. Folks this is an enemy hell bent on killing you. Committed to forcing you to convert or die. This enemy will strap bombs to their own body and blow themselves up killing children.
I'm sick of it. You better wake up America. While you are distracted by the media and the crying of the left, Islamic Jihadist are among us and want to kill you. What will it take? This happening at a concert in Dallas or a school in Denton County? If we don’t do something quick this country will die of political correctness and the fear that someone's feelings may be hurt. It may very well be to late for Europe.
USA Today noted in June 2016 that the U.K. has about 50 to 60 gun homicides yearly, per stats from the Geneva Declaration of Armed Violence and Development. The U.S. gun homicide rate is about 180 times the U.K's rate. According to the FBI's numbers, the U.S. clocked in with 8,124 gun homicides in 2014.
The accused Manchester bomber, Salman Abedi, was born in Manchester and grew up in a tight Libyan community that opposed Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, which his parents fled, reports The Telegraph.
Abedi reportedly made trips to Libya, where he may have come in contact with terrorist networks.
