Stop Political Correctness at US Airports! Begin Profiling!


Stop Political Correctness at US Airports! Begin Profiling!
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet


What’s next in the quest for security at US airports? Cavity searches? Seems to me, that’s about the only thing NOT searched these days.

The US is fatalistically politically correct. We refuse to make a point of searching the very people we already know are the most likely, of all the people boarding aircraft in the US, to be carrying explosive materials, or weapons. Instead, our government is forcing EVERYONE to suffer the indignity of full body scans or “pat downs.”

The US Constitution used to protect American citizens from unreasonable searches. But the US government has made it clear in the past few days that unless the Supreme Court steps in and forces them to abide by the constitution they intend to continue violating the rights of American citizens.

Profiling is the answer to all this humiliation at US airports. We know what the profile of a person more likely than anyone else in the general public to be carrying a device, or materials, forbidden on aircraft. THOSE are the people the government should be patting down and body scanning – not grandmothers, 3-year old children, or even nuns.

So how would the airport screeners know to scan and or pat down? Well, let’s take a look at history for a clue:

1. 1968 Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male extremist between the ages of 17 and 40.

2. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnapped and massacred by Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

3. In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

4. During the 1980's a number of Americans were kidnapped inLebanon by Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

5. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

6. In 1985 the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70 yearold American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard inhis wheelchair by Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

7. In 1985 TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens , and a US Navydiver trying to rescue passengers was murdered by Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

8. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

9. In 1993 the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

10. In 1998, the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombedby Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

11. On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used asmissiles to take out the World Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one crashed into the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

12. In 2002 the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

13. In 2002 reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and murdered by Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40.

14. And now we can add: In 2009, 31 people wounded and 13 AmericanSoldiers murdered on base at Fort Hoodby a Major that was known as a:You guessed it - A Muslim male extremist between the age of 17 and 40.

Profiling could include the country of one’s origin, one’s behavior, one’s religion, one’s gender, and yes, even the color of one’s skin.

Profiling would make air travel in America much safer than it is today. To continue to lie to ourselves, as we do under the current politically correct non-profiling system, does not make us safer. In my opinion, it only makes us more vulnerable to would-be terrorists while denying Americans their constitutional rights.

I have to tell you, I view the government’s behavior at US airports as just another example of the Obama Regime’s lack of respect for the rights of US citizens under the constitution. Once more, they demonstrate their distaste for the limits the constitution places on government.

Americans are indisputably losing another of our cherished freedoms. That is the ability to move about as we please. Since the birth of the country we have had the ability to go anywhere within the states when we please, anyway we pleased. No longer. Our cherished mobility has been curtailed.

If we are to regain control of our government, we have to continue purging the government of the liberal-socialists remaining in the election of November 2012. Then, and only then, can we have a chance at regaining our lost freedom.

  1. You know I agree with this. We should have been profiling from the beginning, doing as the Israelis do.
