WASHINGTON, June 16, 2016 – The ACLU defines racial profiling as “the discriminatory practice by law enforcement officials of targeting individuals for suspicion of crime based on the individual’s race, ethnicity, religion or national origin. ”
“Muslim Advocates and the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund wrote to the U.S. Department of Transportation this week, asking the agency to investigate and publicly report all cases involving Muslim or other minorities who say they were detained, questioned or removed from planes based on racial or religious profiling.”
The two groups recommend that anti-discrimination instruction be required for airline employees, specifically for those who engage directly with passengers during flights. There have been several incidents in recent months of Muslims, people of Arab descent and South Asians being removed from airplanes, questioned as possible terrorists, and denied the ability to travel after concerns were voiced by airline employees or concerned passengers.
Any thinking person can understand how it would feel to be discriminated against and victimized in these situations, but is there any way around racial profiling?
Every single one of the September 11 hijackers was of Middle Eastern descent.
Tashfeen Malik, (pictured above) the female San Bernardino attacker, was born in Pakistan. Her accomplice, Syed Farook, was born in America to Pakistani immigrants.
Nidal Hasan, the 2014 Fort Hood gunman, was born in America to Palestinian parents.
The prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba, where the United States once held as many as 779 war criminals (terrorists), have almost all been Muslim.
These men are in a maximum security prison for carrying out or having some kind of link to terrorist activity against the United States.
The three Belgian bombers and the Orlando gunman, Omar Mateen, were all of Middle Eastern descent.
Every single person in the above photos has blood on his or her hands in the name of Islam. Every single one of them would have killed you and your loved ones if given a chance. There are tens of thousands more just like them all over the world who haven’t been caught or killed yet.
It may not be fair to profile people because of their nationality, but everyone knows that life isn’t and can’t be fair.
It turns out that the Department of Homeland Security knew of Omar Mateen’s suspicious behavior and ties to terrorist activity. Mateen’s boss was aware of his radical tendencies, yet kept it to himself because he didn’t want to be accused of racial profiling.
Now 49 people are dead, and to think it might have been preventable if not for the politically correct fear of being called “racist.”
A similar story surfaced not long after the San Bernardino attacks. Malik and Farook’s neighbors had noticed suspicious activity but did report it to law enforcement because the couple were Muslim.
Fourteen people might be alive right now if the toxicity of political correctness weren’t infecting western society, choking people and keeping them silent.
The country’s elite have been shielding Muslims from racial profiling. Philip Haney, a former Department of Homeland Security officer who served for the better part of a decade, comes clean in a book titled See Something, Say Nothing. During his time at DHS, part of his job included vetting people who had an association with an Islamic Fundamentalist group known as Tablighi Jamaat.
According to WND.com, the concerns of Mateen’s co-workers in reaction to his violent outbursts were similar to those of people who worked closely with Fort Hood terrorist Nidal Hasan. Haney told WND:
“The first thing that comes to mind when I hear about co-workers being concerned is exactly what happened with Nidal Hasan before the Fort Hood shootings. It’s like a tape recorder. We’re listening to exactly the same comments from people who raised concerns.”
According to Bizpac Review, Haney claimed in December that Hillary Clinton’s State Department shut down an investigation into several mosques, among them one attended by San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook. Haney tells WND that the Florida mosque Mateen attended was also part of that investigation.
In addition to putting a freeze on the investigation, the administration deleted most of the records related to the case.
Dr. Sebastian Gorka, another counter-terrorism expert, has encountered resistance from the Department of Homeland Security. According to the Daily Caller, Gorka briefed a Midwest police force about radical Islamic terrorism:
“After eight hours of talking to them a young woman walks up from the Obama administration from the Department of Homeland Security and says, ‘Look Dr. Gorka, that’s all very interesting, but I disagree with all of it because the primary threat to Americans is white supremacists.’”
The suggestion that white supremacists pose the greatest threat to America is unsurprising coming from an Obama Administration employee. President Obama and his high-level staffers grew up and studied in an intellectual environment that placed the blame for he world’s ills on white men.
Is the government avoiding racial profiling out of political correctness, or does this represent a deeply-held set of biases? Either way, it puts Americans at risk. If those responsible for homeland security have better tools, they seem reluctant to use them or bashful about touting their success.
