Fox News Analyst: ‘Political Correctness’ Caused French Terror Attack, ‘Communist’ Mayor Will Cause One in NYC

In an appearance on Fox and Friends, retired Air Force Lieutenant Tom McInerney alleged that Tuesday’s attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo was a result of “political correctness” and that similar attacks would occur in the United States because of people like “communist” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Speaking with Fox News host Steve Doocy, McInerney said 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 said. “This radical Islamic ideology, as I’ve said before – is as evil as Nazism, fascism, and communism. It is not a religion.”

Discussing the police officer who was killed in the attack, Doocy said, “I’ve been getting a lot of tweets from people from Paris who said that most cops choose not to even carry a gun. That, thankfully, is not the case in New York.”

“Thankfully,” McInerney agreed, “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.”

“I think that the world must wake up,” he added. “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.”
