Marine veteran Nick Powers appeared on "Fox & Friends" yesterday and complained that the U.S. can't fight terrorism because of "political correctness."
“It just makes me think of the past 14 years that we’ve spend fighting terrorist groups, and how the rules and regulations and political correctness, especially, has caused us to be tied up,” said Powers, noted RawStory.com (video below).
“You know, our hands are tied behind our backs, and we’re fighting an organization that has no regards to human life and they will do whatever it takes to get their message across,” added Powers.
"Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade claimed there are people who say the U.S. can''t "harshly question people,” but didn't cite any examples.
“First off, war is never going to be pretty,” stated Powers. “And anybody who tries to make it pretty is a complete moron. You have to get dirty, you have to exterminate this scum that is plaguing the entire planet.”
“You know, if these guys continue to keep this up, I mean, France has been a huge proponent for the Muslim community for years, they’ve stepped aside, they’ve let us kind of do our thing, and here they are attacking France,” stated Powers.
On Friday, former Navy SEAL Chad Williams appeared on Fox News where he suggested that some Muslims in the U.S. should be monitored under a new "Muhammad Law," which would be similar to "Megan's Law" for child predators, noted MediaMatters.org (video below).
"Sharia Law is the antithesis really of the Constitution, it's against freedom," said Williams. "And so if we're surrounded by people that really want to go after our freedoms, you know, we've got Megan's Law for people out there that want to go after children and go after women, and rape them and we've got an eye on them. I think we need to be looking at people who want Sharia Law with a little greater scrutiny. Maybe there should be kind of Muhammad Law, something we need to be using to identify those who really want to try an overthrow freedom."
However, Megan's Law targets registered sex offenders who have been convicted of sex crimes against children, not people who hold political views.
