PETE HEGSETH (HOST): Patriots are passing up service or leaving the military altogether, seeing all the social justice and politically correct garbage that Obama and now Biden have rammed into the military. I have seen this shift up close and personal. The army I served on the cusp of Joe Biden's inauguration called me a domestic extremist. My journey was from fighting extremists to being called one. Joe Biden's journey took him to the beaches of Normandy where he looked at those brave warriors in the eye and cheapened their service. He said he, not them, was the defender of democracy because he's willing to potentially jail his opponent. The boys of Normandy fought Nazis. Biden fights Trump and thinks his fight is just as important.
