Marine veteran and Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer appeared on “Fox & Friends” Saturday to discuss the jeering and heckling faced by veterans during the Democratic National Convention.
When Four-Star Gen. John Allen and Medal of Honor recipient Florent Groberg got up to speak at the DNC, alleged pro-Bernie Sanders protesters began to chant “No more war! No more war!” The protesters were outnumbered by other convention attendees, who cheered for the men.
On “Fox & Friends,” Meyer said that the jeering was “typical of what the modern liberals don’t understand.”
“You know what? It’s because of guys like Flo, and guys like General John Allen — they’ve done such an incredible job over the last twelve, thirteen, fourteen years of keeping the enemy off our grounds…”
Meyer then made the point:
“They want Black Lives Matter, or ‘these lives matter’… In America, all lives matter. To the enemy that those men have been fighting… no lives matter.”
When host Clayton Morris mentioned that the hecklers were likely Sanders supporters, Meyer laid into the Democrat Party, as a whole:
“At the end of the day, they’re at the DNC, so they’re Democratic supporters… I bet you anything that that wouldn’t have happened at the RNC.”
But that doesn’t mean the veteran didn’t have some choice words for GOP nominee Donald Trump.
In response to Trump claiming the military is weak, Meyer said:
“I think that’s why you see some of those military supporters going to that side. I mean, we’re not weak. He’s absolutely wrong. That’s the thing. If Donald Trump loses — he’s out focused on Ted Cruz, he’s still being an entertainer — at what point is he gonna turn around and start being a leader?
If Donald Trump loses this election, it’s because Donald Trump lost it himself.”
The current RealClearPolitics polling average has Hillary Clinton ahead by just over one percent.
