Monday, September 19, 2016 – Republican congressional nominee, retired Brigadier General Don Bacon issued the following statement in response to Sunday’s terrorist attacks in New York, New Jersey, and Minnesota:
“I pray for the swift recovery of all those injured in these attacks, and for their families and loved ones. These terrorist attacks are a true horror that have breached our shores and the repressive ideology they bring must be met with a firm hand and swift justice. Their objective is to breed fear at the cost of innocent lives and we must not back down from this new face of terror.
We must remain vigilant during these times, we must project strength. There are perils that exist in this world and our communities are in grave danger to this blight upon the free world. This ideology that holds in contempt much of the human race is one that must be answered by the free people of this world.
A storm now moves upon our horizon, these attacks will not be the last, but the determination of the American people will always persevere.”
