Former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell is an American hero. The lone survivor of a mission-gone-bad deep inside Taliban-held territory in June of 2005 became the basis for his bestselling account, “Lone Survivor,” a book that was later made into a movie starring Mark Wahlberg as Luttrell.
Luttrell is more than a fierce warrior and acclaimed author, however; he’s a devout patriot who has supported various conservative causes and candidates and has unapologetically espoused a vehement pro-America viewpoint that is refreshing in these days of cultural decay and denials of American exceptionalism.
As America remains vulnerable to the dangers of radical Islam, Luttrell has starred in a commercial for the National Rifle Association. His message? “I cower to no one.”
As the left gruesomely pounces on tragedies to further their disarmament agenda, Americans everyone should cling tighter to their Second Amendment rights not only as a means of self-defense against burglars, but as a means of protection against those who mean all Americans harm.
Speaking directly to the Islamic whack-jobs who hate America and the freedoms our way of life represents, Luttrell offers his warning:
“I know you’re watching, so pay attention. You hate my freedom, my religion and my country…Don’t ever confuse me for my politicians or my media. I am an American, free born and free bred…My freedom is more powerful than anything you can possibly do,” Luttrell says in the NRA spot. “I will say what I think, worship according to my beliefs, and raise my children how I see fit.”
“And I defend it all with the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States,” he continued. “I cower to no one.”
No- one man’s warning (even that of a Navy SEAL) should not send jihadists running for Mecca. However, what Luttrell so poignantly articulated is the fighting American spirit.
Not many have the training that Luttrell has had; however, there are millions of us who are well-armed and share his sentiment: we will not cower.
