Denton County Sheriff Tracy Murphee made a post on social media after the Manchester terrorist attack killed 22 people and injured over 100 at an Ariana Grande concert earlier this week. Murphee’s post included a rant on what happens when you let terrorists in without proper vetting, as well as the thought that “Islamic Jihadist are among us,” which is true, considering the amount of potential terrorists arrested every year.
Well, this rant prompted the leftists and muslims in his community to protest, saying that these statements are offensive towards Islam, and not fair.
Today, Murphee spoke out against those accusations, saying: “I stand by everything I said in that post, I’m not backing off any word of it.”
A Texas Sheriff sparked controversy for his reaction to the terrorist attack in Manchester, England (video below).
Denton County Sheriff Tracy Murphee took to social media to express his thoughts on Islamic extremism and the Manchester attack.
“Pay attention to what you see in Manchester England tonight. Pay attention to what is happening in Europe. This is what happens when you disarm your citizens. When you open your borders without the proper vetting. When you allow political correctness to dictate how you respond to an enemy that wants to kill you. When you allow these radicals to travel to Afghanistan and Iran and simply let them back in. When you give up your city’s and your neighborhoods to a religious ideology that says you must convert or die. A ideology that treats women as property, kills gays and women and christians with complete impunity,” he wrote, KXAS reported.
The left tells us we must submit and accept these radical beliefs and bend over backwards to make sure we don’t hurt anybody’s feelings. The left wants to cater to the very group that would kill every group they claim to support. Folks this is an enemy hell bent on killing you. Committed to forcing you to convert or die. This enemy will strap bombs to their own body and blow themselves up killing children. I’m sick of it.
You better wake up America. While you are distracted by the media and the crying of the left, Islamic Jihadist are among us and want to kill you. What will it take? This happening at a concert in Dallas or a school in Denton County? If we don’t do something quick this country will die of political correctness and the fear that someone’s feelings may be hurt. It may very well be to late for Europe.
Reaction to Murphee’s comments were mixed, with some saying they were disturbed by what was perceived as Islamophobia.
“I was shocked,” resident Sarah Gramblin told KXAS. “I don’t trust that he’s going to treat everyone equally under the law and that really worries me.”
When asked about the post in an interview with the site, Murphee defended his comments.
“As a father and seeing those emotional tweets and social media reaching out trying to find those kids, it made me mad and it affected me,” he said. “I stand by everything I said in that post, I’m not backing off any word of it.”
