In the immediate aftermath of the senseless Vegas massacre that claimed the lives of 58 concert goers and injured 500 more, the American spirit shined through. Many people were spotted dragging wounded strangers to safety, using their shirts and shoelaces as makeshift tourniquets, all operating under the unimaginable fear of not knowing if more shots would be fired down on them. An Arizona fireman was shot in the chest giving CPR (he is expected to survive). An ex-Marine stole a truck to take victims to the hospital. And the morning after the tragedy, a line extended around the block for people to donate blood to victims. Awesome stuff.

Yesterday, we brought you the news of Dan Bilzerian filming himself on Snapchat running from the scene as gunfire was raining down, saying, “Holy f–k this girl just got shot in the f—ing head. So f—g crazy.” About an hour later, he posted another video adding, “Saw a girl got f—ing shot in the face right next to me, her brains hanging out. Stupid a– me didn’t bring a gun.” He then returned to the crime scene with a gun, but the shooter had already been killed.

One Medal of Honor recipient wasn’t so receptive of Bilzerian’s live reporting. Sergeant Dakota Meyer, husband of Bristol Palin, is arguably the most decorated Marine in four decades. Meyer is the second youngest living Medal of Honor recipient, Purple Heart recipient, and has been honored with several Navy achievement awards for his service in Afghanistan. In short, the dude entered enemy territory and beat a Taliban fighter to death with a rock before “personally evacuating 12 friendly wounded and provided cover for another 24 Marines and soldiers to escape likely death at the hands of a numerically superior and determined foe.” Suffice it to say, when Dakota Meyer speaks, I’ll listen. We all should.

Following Bilzerian’s viral video, Meyer posted the below screenshot of Bilzerian and did not mince words about his thoughts on the matter.
