It was a devastating tragedy that twenty-two people died in the terrorist bombing at the arena in Manchester, England during a concert by pop singer Ariana Grande. The bombing was claimed by radical Islamic terror group ISIS, and has caused the British government to increase the country’s terror alert status.
Unfortunately, the reactions of many liberals to the tragic event have been despicable, such as that of fellow popstar Katy Perry. A Navy SEAL was recently criticized by liberals for how he slammed Katy Petty, but he just came out and said that he is “doubling down” on his comments.
In a shamefully clueless statement, the “I Kissed a Girl” singer said, “I think the greatest thing we can do now is unite as people, as fan bases, all of it. Whatever we say behind people’s backs, the Internet can be a little bit ruthless as far as fan bases go but I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other. No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.”
This prompted Navy SEAL Carl Higbie to say about liberals like Perry, “If you come to America, you’re American and nothing else. [But] we don’t have people who respect the culture of the United States of America.” He added, “You have people like Katy Perry…this woman has said ‘oh we need to give them hugs, hug it out.’ Go to hell Katy Perry. Hold one of your concerts in Syria and see how that goes.”
When the Daily Caller News Foundation recently asked Higbie if he had gone too far in those comments, he responded, “No. I’m doubling down.” He added, “The problem is that Katy Perry lives in a bubble. She influences millions of young children who believe everything that comes out of her mouth. It’s irresponsible of her to say something like this, when she has no understanding of the situation. Open borders would be a disaster.” He also criticized the influence celebrities have, saying, “People are captivated by pop culture. It’s remarkable that people like Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian have multiple times the amount of followers as the Speaker of the House. Entertainers are not meant to inform. That isn’t their job.” Do you agree with Carl? Watch below:
