In Support of Racial Profiling
By Greg Quinn
January 15th, 2010
Yes, I support racial profiling. I believe racial profiling is necessary for the security of our nation and success in our fight with terror.
Before you get all excited and call me a racist, let me explain.
First, I am not a racist. I
am not a racist in thought or action. I
am color blind when it comes to people, and try my very best to look at folks
the way Christ looks at folks. By
the heart. And, since we are not
God, we cannot see the heart but only the actions that are the result of the
heart. So, I think I am rightfully
justified in placing my position on individuals based upon their actions.
Not the color of their skin. Nor
their economic status. But their actions.
Secondly, most of those that read this article that vehemently disagree with my position are most likely much more racist than I am. I believe I can make this claim clearer by stating the following. Most people who are in opposition to my political position are supporters of President Obama. They most likely voted for Obama. And, many of them voted for Obama for racist reasons. Obama’s campaign was based largely on race. He was elected because of his race. He himself has made very racist statements before and since he was elected to the highest office in the land. He attended for many years a racist church, and supported a racist pastor. Many voters were outspoken in their support for him because of his race. Regardless of how one might want to paint this otherwise, Obama has acted as a racist, he was elected due to a racially-motivated agenda, and many of his policies are racist.
Example, what would have been the outcome if John McCain, or any other non-minority candidate for that matter, had made similar remarks as did Obama? How would the media have portrayed McCain supporters if they, like Colin Powell, Oprah, and others, made statements of how they were supporting McCain because of the color of his skin? How would we have reacted to the media if NBC stated that they were endorsing Senator McCain because he was white? We can all appreciate the double-standard that was in place prior to the election, and is currently in place. Unfortunately, race played a major role in the outcome of this Presidential election, it was biased due to race, and I believe it tainted the democratic process forever in this nation.
And, race continues to play a part in the media portrayal of Obama’s success thus far, or lack thereof. The economy is worse now than when Bush was in office, but Obama and the media blame others including Bush. Our nation’s security is worse than when Bush was in office, but why isn’t the media beating Obama up about it? In fact, Obama hasn’t done anything positive that he said he was going to do, but these failures are swept under the rug. And, much of the willingness to overlook his apparent failures are due to his race.
Therefore, the stage has been set. We have already played the “race card” with the election and continued support of Obama. If we can justify race-focused actions to elect and support our President, why then cannot we justify race-focused actions to protect the security of our nation?
I said all this to make this point. We as a nation are in a war, a war with evil terrorists who want nothing more than to destroy our nation and culture. They want to destroy our freedoms. And, we know who they are, what they look like, what religious group they belong to, where they are from, and how they act. But, the same liberal idiots that would take issue with me over racism playing a significant role in the election of Obama would also take issue with me over “racial profiling” to protect our nation. And, the anti-racial profiling group is winning the argument to the detriment of our way of life in the United States of America.
Look at actions of recent weeks. A terrorist went on a plane with explosives in his drawers with the sole intention of bringing down the entire aircraft over a major US city. His intent was to kill hundreds of “infidels”. He has been praised by Al Qaeda. Fortunately, he was unsuccessful, but only because of a technical difficulty; his explosives didn’t explode. Now, we had information that proved he was part of a radical Muslim group, we had information that he had attended a training camp for terrorists, he was on the terrorist watch list, and he bought a one-way ticket. That should have been enough to prevent him from boarding the plane. But it wasn’t. And, the explosives in his underwear went undetected. The only reason we are not reeling from another successful terror attack is because his explosives didn’t go boom.
We need racial profiling to protect our security. If racial profiling had been engaged, then because of his name he would have been scrutinized prior to being allowed to buy a ticket. The one-way ticket sale would not have occurred. If he slipped through the system and was at the airport, he would have been patted down through airport security and most likely the explosives would have been discovered. The “targeting” of this one individual through racial profiling could save the lives of hundreds of innocent Americans.
But, the liberals in our nation, including those in the White House and
Congress, will not allow racial profiling to occur.
Instead of offending a minority group, they'd rather risk the security
and safety of all Americans.
Let’s look at another example. A 1986 Chevy Impala with big wheels and a low-rider look drives through your neighborhood. Inside the car are 5 guys that look really mean. They have gang graffiti on the outside of the car. The smell of burning dope lingers as they drive past. They see your wife and daughter in the front yard, stop the car, and make sexist remarks to you related to what they would like to do to your wife and little girl. You hurriedly move your wife and daughter inside. They look you in the eye with a menacing glare and ask if they can come into your house. What would you do? If you refused to let them come in, then aren’t you acting with racial bias? Is this not racial profiling? Or are you just protecting your family?
President Obama, Congress, the FBI, CIA, and other agencies that are supposed to protect our freedoms as Americans are letting the bad guys come into the house.
We know who they are. 99.5% or better are Muslims. 90% or better have Muslim names. The vast majority are of Middle Eastern or African origin. Their intent is well-documented. So, we have a group that we know wants to destroy us and some in our country are so concerned over their individual rights that they jeopardize the welfare of our entire nation.
Folks, it’s time to wake up. We need racial profiling, or whatever you choose to call it, in order to protect America. We need to scrutinize all Muslims, middle Eastern namesakes, etc. (those that meet the profile of the majority of terrorists) to provide better security for our country. Not all Muslims are terrorists; there are many most likely who are good people. But, it is proven that all terrorists are Muslim. Therefore, we must act accordingly.
Yes, the liberals will wail about failed civil rights. The Muslims will fuss about profiling and racism. So what? We have already proven that many Americans are racist through the election of Obama. Why not engage racial profiling to protect our freedoms and nation?
Instead, let me tell you most likely what will happen. Everyone that travels will undergo additional security. Your grandmother will be faced with the same invasion of privacy as those that look like our enemy. Airlines will get bottlenecked. People will be frustrated. The terrorists will have won again.
This is not about racism. This
is not about judging a person by the color of his skin.
This is not about judging one group because of the actions of a minority
within that group. But, we are at war. We
know what the enemy looks like, sounds like, and how he is named.
Why cannot we use that information for the protection of our country
while at the same time not violating the civil rights of any individual?
Implemented properly, a fair “profiling” position will insure the
security of our country while at the same time not infringing upon the privacy
of 99% of Americans who do not meet the criteria of looking like the enemy.
I encourage you to let your elected officials know your position on the subject. I fear we must act before it is too late.
