I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the election in Iraq. First, the people that bombed the voters are really freaking stupid. “I don’t want to have any power over my life, and I’ll kill anyone that does.” Talk about a dumb philosophy. I suppose it’s not very politically correct of me to classify a group as dumb. But let’s face it, those people are just plain dumb.
I’m ready for profiling. If you look like a Muslim, we are going to harass you until you prove you can sing the theme to “Friends.” Until that, we’ll assume you’re a “sleeper” waiting to be activated by your superiors. I’m all busted up that profiling makes progressives angry. But you know what, if bald men were going around blowing stuff up, I’d expect to have to prove my loyalty to American ideals.
The fact is, it’s not bald guys blowing stuff up. It’s Muslims. “But it’s a religion of peace.” Yeah right. Everywhere you go, if there’s something being blown up, there a Muslim standing there pushing the button.
At some point, it’s foolish optimism NOT to profile. And police profile all the time despite their denials. For instance, if someone drives through my neighborhood with Missouri plates, they will be pulled over. If they have Missouri plates and they’re not white, they get beat with the butt of the policemen’s guns. Even the black police in my city beat up the black people with Missouri plates. The theory is that they can’t possibly be up to any good. (We Kansan’s hate Missourians.)
And there is at least some logic to the argument. At 2 AM, there are not many reasons for someone from Missouri (of any race) to be driving around in my city. They don’t live there, their friends are asleep, and there aren’t ANY stores open. So unless they’re lost, they are probably up to no good. I don’t drive around Missouri at 2 AM… There’s no logical reason for it. And if I did, the KC MO police would pull me over and beat me.
I don’t condone racism, but I do condone intelligence. If one certain group of people is responsible for 95% of violence, then they clearly should get 95% of the scrutiny. It’s just common sense.
Unfortunately, thanks to the libs, common sense is no longer politically correct, so we must continue to strip search old quadraplegic women at the airport while 22 year old Mohamar walks through unchecked.
We are just asking for it.
