What Few Want To Say Outloud

From Little Fox at The Absurd Report - Right now all over Europe and America, innocent travellers are having their Evian confiscated and their unmentionables pawed through by federal security guards. This of course is due to the terror plot to blow up 20 planes that has been thwarted in England. Did I mention that the plotters were English-born Pakistanis? Here’s an idea. Instead of taking my grandmothers eye drops and shaking down blonde women with babies, STOP LETTING ARAB MEN ON AIRPLANES until the threat is lowered. That way, the rest of us could travel as usual and the only people who will be inconvenienced are the only group of people who have been known to blow up planes. Let’s make all airports Arab-free zones for the weekend or for however long it takes to lower the threat level.

As you can probably discern, my sensitivity meter is broken. I don’t really give a @!#? who gets offended at this point. But unfortunately, this scenario won’t happen until a few million Americans or British are killed when one of our cities goes up in flames. Then, we will finally have had enough and we’ll do what we should have done after 9/11 and build detainment camps for all Muslims, ban the religion/ideology from our shores and turn the Middle East into a parking lot.

In the meantime, get in line, make sure you’re not wearing any underwire, and prepare to be violated.

Happy travelling!

We wish we had done this post, as my cohort and I have many times had this very discussion.

Listen folks, it's not nice to insult people or to be rude, but this Politically Correct crap is going to keep us in danger and definitely get some of us killed if we don't begin using the tools we have available (profiling specifically). Little Fox is right -- stop checking old women, kids and everyone else EXCEPT Arab-looking people, especially men between the ages of 18 and 40. We KNOW who the terrorists are. We KNOW what they look like and what age range they fall into. We know which people to be suspicious of, but yet we keep going after everyone else. Stop playing to the ACLU and the "Give 'em a hug" Dems, and start targeting the people who fit the terrorist profile.

In case you missed the best part, here it is again. Shake off your PC fog and read the one plan that would absolutely make a difference in our safety:

We think Little Fox is right on target.

It's really disheartening to hear this kind of rhetoric, especially in this day and age. By reading this blog, one could honestly infer that you're the owner of a time-traveling Delorian and you've miraculously traveled back in time to the early 1940's. Apparently you have forgotten about one of America's biggest mistakes in the interning of thousands of innocent Japanese Americans. They were taken from their homes, stripped of their property and forced to relocate to Internment camps (much like the "detainment camps" suggested for Muslims in your blog.) Needless to say, it was completely unconstitutional and against their civil rights as American citizens.

Although you might think that by writing this, I'm one of those flag burning, mask wearing, Che Guevara T-shirt wearing "extreme liberals" who protests every other Friday, you're wrong. Interestingly enough it's not that black and white. It's not Conservative vs. Liberal, Republican vs. Democrat, or "Saying what others are afraid to" vs. "being politcally correct." - It's a matter of human rights and what affects us as a country and as individuals.

The reason you don't care about interning thousands of Muslims (or probably Japanese Americans either, for that matter) is most likely because you are not one of them. It's as simple as that. If you were, or if you had relatives that were, you'd think differently. But you don't care, and you're openly "unsensitive" because it doesn't affect YOU.

It's sad, but that's the way many people think - only of themselves.
