Burgess Owens: “It's like 9/11 and Peal Harbor, we're being assaulted by the left. ... They're globalists, and they're leftist globalists.”

From the September 10 edition of Fox Business' Varney & Co.:

BURGESS OWENS (FORMER NFL PLAYER): We now just have Nike, for instance, just joining the fray. And, as we see a little bit less, probably, of the kneeling, we're going to still see the narrative by Nike, and that is a Marxist who's going to be the face in commercials in NFL games from this point moving on. 

We have to look at the bigger picture and understand in America that we're under assault. It's like 9/11 and Pearl Harbor, we're being assaulted by the left. And we need to understand who they are. They're globalists, and they're leftist globalists. The worst thing that can happen to our country is to let them get away with it and not understand what their long game is. It's not American, it's not about patriotism. It's profit and politics for them. 

STUART VARNEY (HOST): What was the name of your book again?
