SHANNON BREAM (CO-HOST): Well what about these countries that are now requiring people who do come into the country to take classes that teach them the history and the culture of that country, the language and require them to take some of those classes? I mean, there are those on the left who will say that is insulting and oppressive to their native cultures. What do we do?
CARL HIGBIE: I think if you want -- If you come to America you're American and nothing else and American foremost. And I think what this is is we don't have people who respect the culture of the United States of America. I mean you have people like Katy Perry, for instance. I mean this woman has said "oh we need to give them hugs."
BREAM: Hug it out.
HIGBIE: Yeah, hug it out. Go to hell, Katy Perry. Hold one of your concerts in Syria and see how that goes. She has not -- I mean these people fundamentally don't understand what is going on here.
BREAM: But you don't think she is coming from a bad place? You just think they don't get the threats.
HIGBIE: Well I just think they are completely benign. And they don't understand any of this and they don't want to understand, too. And that why I'm so strong against these celebrities who speak out and say "we can fight it through love" or "It's not really violent," and "they don't mean it." We're putting the political correctness of the Islamic culture over our lives of our citizens and need to stop that immediately.
