In an interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas, Andrew C. McCarthy, the former assistant United States attorney who successfully led the prosecutions of the 1993 World Trade Center bombers, explained why he thinks more people don’t focus on threats posed by extremists.
“Political correctness is a big part of the problem of not confronting other ideologies,” he said. “That is an idea that is suppressed in the media, it’s suppressed on the campus, it’s suppressed almost pervasively throughout society.”
“The most important thing that ordinary citizens can do is insist on our ability to communicate robustly — that is, to insist upon our free-speech rights. It’s the free-speech rights that actually move the politicians.”
