I had a long post written hammering a stake in the heart of the whole idea of racial profiling and then…I lost interest. So, dear reader, I have spared you of a long, boring post about how incredibly stupid, immoral and counterproductive profiling based on race, religion, gender or similar characteristics.
If you want more than that I can only quote Mr. Pukhov: “I can explain why but I can’t be bothered.”
Certainly, by now you’ve heard the hysterical ranting of General Thomas McInerney (thank goodness he was Air Force) who apparently was so thrilled to have someone ask his opinion on TV he decided to go totally nutso and say that “in the next 30-120 days” (you could almost hear the suction sound as he pulled that number out of his ass) a plane would be brought down. He assigned that a ‘high probability’ to that event and so advocated strip searching all 18-28 year old Muslim men.
Let’s just say…the guy went Full Retard.
