A former Navy Seal has taken issue with comments made by pop singer Katy Perry following the terrorist attack in Manchester at an Ariana Grande concert.
Appearing in an interview on Fox News Carl Higbie told Perry to “go to hell” after the singer said during a radio interview that the answer to such terrorist attacks was “no borders”.
Perry said that people should “just unite and love on each other,” adding “… and like, no barriers, no borders, like we all need to just co-exist.”
Looking straight into the camera, Higbie said “Go to hell, Katy Perry. Hold one of your concerts in Syria and see how that goes.”
Higbie said “If you come to America, you’re American and nothing else and American foremost.”
“And I think what this is is we don’t have people who respect the culture of the United States of America. I mean, you have people like Katy Perry, for instance. I mean this woman has said, ‘Oh, we need to give them hugs.'” Higbie said, adding “these people fundamentally do not understand what is going on here.”
“We are putting political correctness over the Islamic culture over the lives of our citizens, and we need to stop that immediately.” Higbie urged.
Higbie further argued that it makes no sense to argue that social exclusion or ‘Islamophobia’ in Britain is to blame for extremism.
“They feel isolated from the community because they isolate themselves… they’ve made no attempt to assimilate to the surrounding population,” Higbie said. “It is unbelievable that they feel that they are isolated because of some external force. No, they are doing it to themselves.”
