Former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, a Democrat turned Republican, joined SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Saturday to discuss President Joe Biden’s recent address to Congress and how conservative Americans should get involved.
“It is just another example of how truly radical this leftist agenda has become and how far Joe Biden is from core American values,” Greitens told host Matt Boyle of Biden’s joint address to Congress. “Something that really stood out to me about the speech was when he talked about Nancy’s [Nancy Pelosi’s] second drive-by impeachment after January 6, and he said it was the greatest attack on American democracy since the Civil War.”
“I’m sitting there thinking to myself, ‘Does he not remember 9/11 when over 3,000 Americans were killed?'” Greitens continued. “Does he not remember the thousands of Americans who later perished in the global war on terrorism? Does he not remember Pearl Harbor when over 2,400 Americans were killed and the hundreds and thousands who gave their lives in World War II?”
“It just shows you how warped the left’s perspective has become,” he added. “This is what happens when you have leftists who try to erase American history, led by Joe Biden who clearly doesn’t remember it or has become so, so twisted by a leftist political ideology.”
Greitens continued, reflecting on his career as a Navy SEAL and the many lives given for this country, stating Biden is “detached from what is happening on the front line.” Greitens also blasted Biden for his handling of the southern border crisis, asserting he “has turned America’s border over to Mexican drug gangs and cartels.”
To combat the left’s agenda, Greitens said, “Patriots must step forward.”
“Because of the failure of many Republicans to really investigate election integrity and election fraud, because of the failures of RINOs in the swamp to step up for President Trump, many patriotic Americans and conservative Americans, right now, are feeling hopeless,” Greitens said. “What we need to recognize is that courage is contagious, and courage comes when we take action.”
Greitens also suggested people should “get involved at a local level” and maybe “run for their local precinct” to fight for the values they believe in.
“There are more people in America who believe in common sense than the craziness of the left,” Greitens said. “There are more people in America who are patriots than there are radicals.”
