|California’s Biggest Problem? The Idiots Who Live There||Atlas Shrugged Unfolding Before Our Eyes in California|
I don’t always agree with Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) — I think he’s slightly insane, in fact. But I still kinda like the guy, and occasionally he gets it exactly right. Like in this speech to Congress railing against the atrocity that is the TSA’s unrestrained powers to molest citizens and violate their Constitutional rights:
I haven’t been asked to go through one of the new full-nudity body scanners yet. I’ll refuse if asked. And, I won’t submit to being groped either if they ask to squeeze my ass and fondle my junk. Consequences be damned, but I’m not a sheep.
Don’t touch my junk is the anthem of the modern man, the Tea Party patriot, the late-life libertarian, the midterm election voter. Don’t touch my junk, Obamacare – get out of my doctor’s examining room, I’m wearing a paper-thin gown slit down the back. Don’t touch my junk, Google – Street View is cool, but get off my street. Don’t touch my junk, you airport security goon – my package belongs to no one but me, and do you really think I’m a Nigerian nut job preparing for my 72-virgin orgy by blowing my johnson to kingdom come?
The TSA assumes that every single person attempting to board a plane is a terrorist, and their job is to simply find any weapons or explosives that they are trying to smuggle aboard our planes. While they are grossly violating our civil rights trying to find weapons, they are doing absolutely zilch to try to find any terrorists.
And there is one very easy way to do that — psychological and racial profiling. The majority of frequent fliers on domestic flights in the US are American-born, middle-aged white guys. The majority of people who are trying to blow up our planes are foreign born young Muslim men.
Ann Coulter has a great column on this — how it would be much easier for TSA to spend a few minutes interviewing the 1 or 2 foreign-born Muslim men flying domestically than it is to strip search and molest nuns, infants, and old ladies:
It’s similarly pointless to treat all Americans as if they’re potential terrorists while trying to find and confiscate anything that could be used as a weapon. We can’t search all passengers for explosives because Muslims stick explosives up their anuses. (Talk about jobs Americans just won’t do.)
You have to search for the terrorists.
Fortunately, that’s the one advantage we have in this war. In a lucky stroke, all the terrorists are swarthy, foreign-born, Muslim males. (Think: “Guys Madonna would date.”)
This would give us a major leg up — if only the country weren’t insane.
She’s right — we are insane. We are crippled by our political correctness towards offending the delicate psyches of Muslims and the terrorism-supporting Imams at CAIR.
To which I say, “fuck ‘em.”
