• Sgt. Dakota Meyer Lambasts Obama On France: Was Ferguson More Important?

    Heads of state from around the world joined the more than 3.7 million people on the streets of Paris Sunday in a solidarity Unity Rally to honor the victims of last week’s terror attack on Charlie Hebdo.

    Except, Obama skipped the event.

    Yesterday, White House press secretary Josh Earnest admitted that Obama snubbing the rally was a mistake. “Some have asked whether or not the United States should’ve sent someone with a higher profile than the ambassador of France,” Earnest said. “And I think it’s fair to say that we should have sent someone with a higher profile.”

    The White House actually blamed security requirements and a limited time to plan for Obama and Biden’s absence from the march.

    Obama also failed to show up at a “companion march at the French Embassy organized in Washington on Sunday afternoon,” POLITICO reports.

    Today, Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer pummeled Obama for not going to France.

    “You got to scratch your head as to what’s this administration thinking when their not sending someone over to France. They didn’t see the importance. . .,” Meyer said on Fox and Friends. “You see the importance in Ferguson, but you can’t see the importance” in sending someone to France, Meyer asked.

    Indeed, Eric Holder compared Ferguson teenager Michael Brown’s death to Emmett Till. Obama spoke numerous times on the rallies and marches in Ferguson, Missouri. And the White House went so far as to send three White House officials to the funeral service of Michael Brown.

    So what was the president doing while 44 world leaders marched along with the people of France after they suffered the worst terror attack on their land in decades?

    Obama was watching football.

    “According to an administration official,” the Daily Mail reports, “President Obama spent part of his Sunday afternoon watching a National Football League game on television. Both games were broadcast hours after the march.”

    Obama chose football over France.

    “You really didn’t understand the importance of it?” Meyer asked.

    The Medal of Honor recipient also argues that France brought last weeks attacks on themselves with there “no go zones, they allowed this to fester up.”

    Last Wednesday’s massacre was one of the most deadliest terror attacks France has ever seen, and Sunday’s Unity Rally was the largest rally in French history.
