A HISTORY TEST...

I received this email through the Townhall.com Conservatives meetup group. I found it quite compelling, while there is obvious humor in it, it also sends a very ominous message. That what happened on 9/11 was no coincidence and TRUTH BE TOLD our leaders should have saw it coming.

Nope, .....I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?

So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone because of profiling.

Let's send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Aldreds and
other dunder-headed attorneys along with Federal Justices that want to thwart common sense, feel doubly ashamed of themselves - if they have any such sense.

As the writer of the award winning story "Forrest Gump" so aptly put it,
"Stupid is as stupid does."

Come on people wake up!!!

Keep this going. Pass it on to everyone in your address book.
Our Country and our troops need our support!

As I said, funny but also scary. Now with the war on terrorism in full swing we are having issues with racial profiling even more so in regards to people of Mid-East and Arabic characteristics being searched in airports or being deported by INS authorities. An article in the City Journal from Spring 2001 gives some background into the problem and some compelling accounts of the efforts of anti-profilers in New York and other areas in the country. It is amazing how little most people think, where an officer who pulls over a black man for speeding is villainized by the very community he is protecting. Here in L.A., specifically South Central L.A., the people are crying out for justice. They want crime to stop and police to stop it for them, yet, when the very same police department arrests an offender, one who not only committed a traffic crime but also put innocents in harms way through those actions, resisted arrest, and the community goes up in arms and makes a big stink because the officers beat the assailant, who would not comply with police orders to submit. Amazing! The guy needed a good butt whipping since it is obvious his parents failed to do it themselves! Yes I am referring to Rodney King. Then to top it off, when the officers are rightfully acquitted, a riot ensues within the very community that purports to want justice! The people of South Central actually destroy and vandalize their own community. How stupid is that?! They blame racist whites among the so called elite for their so called oppression and injustice but riot and destroy their own buildings, houses, churches, and stores? That makes a whole lot of sense, not! And over what? A known, convicted felon on parole, who did not want to pull over because he didn't want to go back to jail. He even testified to this and admitted that he did not believe that he was being beaten because of his race!!

The man was and is still a known criminal and yet many in the black community herald him as a great martyr. He got what he deserved then and apparently continues to even today, take a look at his arrest record here. Does this look like a record of an innocent motorist just driving along minding his own business and all of a sudden several evil white policemen pull him over and start beating him? Come on, think people! In today's day and age, is it even feasible to believe that the majority of police officers, many of whom are minority, are actually pulling over blacks, Hispanics and others just for the sake of hubris? Give me a break!

If black people really want change in their communities they need to wake up and realize that their problems do not come from without but from within. No one will dare say this though. Now, thanks to many radical, ignorant and amoral "civil rights" and political leaders, the concept of racial profiling will be used to protect terrorists in this country as well. Putting law abiding citizens in harms way and for what, to protect the so called rights of a few law breaking terrorists? Amazing! We need to turn the tide back to common sense and justice and eliminate the whole racial profiling debate altogether, allowing our police to do their jobs. Yet, it may already be too late as our beloved police chief William Bratton has already established and supports policies that only serve to cripple any legitimate efforts by police to enforce existing law. One such policy is called Special Order 40, a police mandate that originated in 1979, established by former Police Chief Gates along with the approval of the L.A. City Council. It prevents police from inquiring about the immigration status of assailants. So if an officer arrests a Hispanic gang member and has reason to suspect that this person is an illegal immigrant, he cannot ask the gang member if he is actually illegal or not nor make efforts to find out, hence, keeping this known criminal within our borders, unable to deport him.

Things are getting worse and worse and it is due to the lack of wisdom among our leaders. Plain and simple. We cannot even begin to make a dent in the war on terrorism with foolish and idiotic policies such as this. We need to remove and ignore people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Rep. Maxine Waters, Diane Fienstien and others, keep them out of the policy making/influencing efforts and the public eye, if we really want to prevent another 9/11 from happening right here in Los Angeles.

I pray that God will restore wisdom back to our leadership, soon.


UPDATE:
In the heat of my posting I failed to mention another valuable resource on this very issue, Michelle Malkin's latest book called In Defense of Internment: The Case for "Racial Profiling" in World War II and the War on Terror. It has been very controversial but she makes a compelling argument for racial profiling being used then and now.

Great post. I ended up here while I was doing some searching about LA special order 40. Crazy isn't it that the mandate is essentially to protect law breakers at the cost and safety of naturalized citizens...I am shaking my head in disgust as I blog about it on my site.

WOW! You said what I have always thought. I am going to email the history test to Barbara Boxer and ask her to visit my site as well. I put her picture up there...
Stop by some time see it. It's classic

Thanks to you both. Steve I will definately stop by. I really have a very low, low opinion of Ms. Boxer, especially after her not so little tirade with Ms. Rice. She only showed her true colors.

And it is quite disgusting Crystal. It is amazing what people support and what we as citizens allow our leaders to get away with.
