Liberals can’t handle the truth.

A North Texas sheriff who criticized “the left” and “political correctness” in a Facebook post after Monday’s terror attack in Manchester, England, defended his comments Tuesday.
“I stand behind it,” Denton County Sheriff Tracy Murphree told NBC 5. “We need to be realistic about the world we live in.”
The Manchester bombing, which happened at the end of an Ariana Grande concert, left at least 22 dead, including an 8-year-old girl. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack, though an American intelligence official could not verify that, according to the Associated Press. Manchester police identified the bomber as 22-year-old Salman Abedi, a Britain native who died in the attack.
Murphree’s Facebook post about 10 p.m. Monday implored Americans to “pay attention to what is happening in Europe.”
“This is what happens when you disarm your citizens,” Murphree wrote. “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.”
He later wrote, “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.”
