Unless you just came out of a coma, or like myself have just emerged from a week-long barrel ride over the falls; then you're aware of course of the remarks that Juan Williams made on Bill O'Reilly's show that resulted in his termination from NPR:

"I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”

What we have here, remarkably enough, is a black liberal endorsing the concept of racial profiling.

This attitude is backed one of this country's leading experts on race, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, about 18 years ago; "There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery . . . then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved."

We are used to the hypocrisy of the Left, of course. The same personalities of that clucking hen show The View who walked out on Bill O'Reilly for having the audacity to declare that the Ground Zero Mosque is innapropriate because, "Muslims killed us on 9/11," now rush to Juan William's defense. Whoopi Goldberg said this of Williams: “I don’t think he should have been fired, because, in fact . . . lots of people have this idea,”

It may or may not surprise you to learn that as a security professional, I do not endorse the concept of racial profiling. People deplore the security procedures at our airports - "Why does a 100-year-old grandmother have to take off her shoes and be subject to the same searches as an Arab male of military age?"

I'll tell you why. Consider; up until the events of September 11th, 2001, the worst terrorist attack in North America - and one of the worst in world history - was the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma . . .

. . . an atrocity perpetrated by THESE individuals:

Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols don't fit the mental image most Americans have of terrorists.

Perhaps you recall that in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing, immediate suspicions fell upon the Arab & Pakistani populations in and around Deerborn, Michigan? In fact, this was partially McVeigh's & Nichol'S motivation - inspired by The Turner Diaries, McVeigh's goal was to kick-start a race war within the United States.

Then there's THIS guy:

The traitor Adam Gadahn - American-born self-convert to Islam, the al Qaeda Minister of Propaganda; now deceased thanks to Predator Drone.

Then there's THESE lovely personalities:

Chechen leader & mastermind of the Beslan Elementary School massacre, Shamir Basayev.

The Chechens are not Arabs, they are Caucasians. Some of them are blond haired and blue-eyed, and as anybody who has faced them down in combat will tell you, they are a THOUSAND TIMES more lethal than any Arab, any day.

Check out the Chechen WOMEN terrorists:

"The female of the species is more deadly than the male." - Ancient Truism

Now back to that 100-year old grandmother, going through the security line at the airport - SHE's not of military age, she's OBVIOUSLY not a terrorist - why should SHE have to take off her shoes, then be lifted out of her wheelchair and be subjected to the humiliating search train?

I'll tell you why - and I'll tell you how anyone can be turned into a terrorist, no matter what their age, race, sex or skin color. All the bad guys have to do is rock on up to Grandma's house and show her a video of her lovely 4-year-old granddaughter they're holding at gunpoint, and tell her that before they kill the child they're going to rape her in every hole, and . . . you get the point.

Bottom Line: racial profiling against Muslim males is not security, it is the ILLUSION of security. The enemy knows we're on heightened alert for dark Arab males of a certain age; and this is precisely WHY we should be on alert for the blond-haired, blue-eyed All-American types . . .

. . . or little old ladies in wheelchairs.




  1. NEZAR HINDAWI...remember the name? Mr Hindawi is the Jordanian who (on 17 April 1986) gave his unsuspecting and pregnant girlfriend a bomb to take on board an El Al jet at Heathrow. The 1.5 kilograms of Semtex would have destroyed the aircraft, killing all on board, including the young Irish chambermaid who fondly believed that Mr Hindawi would be arriving in Israel a few days later to marry her.

  2. That may be all well and good, but I'm not much enjoying being profiled as a "right wing extremist gunsmith" when I'm not an extremist and I never through a rock through anybody's windows. I have friends in the threeper and Oath Keeper movements and they distance themselves from the McVeighs and Neo-Nazis, but it doesn't make a flip to the Fibbies. They profile the hell out of us.

    My dad retired from a post military GS job as a GS-16 before they eliminated that in favor of GS-15 (+ Senior Executive Bonus) and I called the bastards up and asked me why I was ALWAYS profiled. And basically it boils down to being a libertarian gunsmith who was mouthy about it at times. So I shed no tears for muslims being profiled, as I'm being profiled and I never had a thought in my mind to ever harm anyone...

    My thrupence.

  3. This weblog should be posted at the front of every security checkpoint in every airport in the U.S.A.

    Very well said.

  4. A security program that relies solely on profiling to detect and deter is exercise in futility and potential disaster.
    However. Profiling can be useful when employed as a tool and not relied on as a solution. Look no further than urban gang supression. Yes, even gangs that are racially based do make use of members that fall outside their prime demographic, but it's more efficient and ultimately more productive to concentrate on those aspects of criminality that are presented by the target population. Such forces the criminal element to react and respond to the external pressure being applied instead of conducting business as usual. Yes, they will change their operational methods but that's where flexibility and non-reliance on profiling as the sole method of detection is key.

  5. Profiling Oath Keepers and Threepers will BUY YOU a BASKET of HELL you don't want and they don't want.

    Keep that in mind Six. We don't have a dog in a fight unless people create fights...Then all hell could break loose. Witness many failed countries with economic problems and the Weimar republic had less debt problems than the US does right now. Start Finger**cking loyal Americans who want to make this country still work, and you just might create another war.

    None of us want that. We pray it never happens.

    I had kin on BOTH sides of the war between the states and they didn't want it. But some of these profiling and fusion centers listen to people like Al Sharpton when they should be listening to SENTIENT humans.

    At a recent gun show, a FBI agent I know gave me a copy of J Ed's treatise on communist insurgents, whilst some of his pals were perusing my website at their "conflation centers of STUPID".

    Pardon me for tkaing such acts personally, but they were PERSONAL. I like the guy that gave me the signed J Ed book, and I don't like the people that are descendants of his ops that follow me around for no reason when they could meet me at church or the gun range.

  7. Anonymous. Go back and re-read my comment. I never mentioned Threepers and Oath Keepers so I'm not sure what your point is. I am a member of OK myself.
    My point is that profiling is a tool that can be useful when employed as part of a crime fighting strategy.
    Example. In a high crime part of town, one that is claimed by a certain gang, am I going to cast hard looks at the grandmother walking down the sidewalk with her grandkids or the group of young adults who are flashing signs while wearing the colors associated with that very gang? You might not like it but that's profiling and it's not always a bad thing.
