SPECTACULAR MORNING RACISM FROM FOX AND FRIENDS

Classic case of 'I just said something stupid, so let me try to obscure it by saying 5 more equally stupid things'. Steve Doocy accidentally reveals some raw uncut racism in the most bumbling awkward way possible. I'm just surprised that he didn't take the opportunity to lump all blacks in with middle-eastern people as his preferred targets for airport racial profiling. The situation is exponentially sweeter in that the consultant he's speaking with is a Muslim named Ahmed Rehab. C'mon Steve... -Try to keep up. Even the most seasoned rasicts know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em. You're making this look like amateur hour.

I think it's safe to assume that the majority of those seeking to do the U.S. harm and/or blow up a plane are of the Muslim persuasion. Arab/Black or Asian, it doesn't matter. Profiling should be another tool used to identify those that pose a risk. The Israeli(El Al) security forces have profiled for years & have NEVER had an incident on airliner. If it keeps these assholes off of planes, then hey, profile away. And these Muslims are gonna' have to start accepting the fact that they are gonna' have to cooperate as well, in the name of security. "Body scanning is against Islamic law". Yeah? Tough shit.I'm a lil' more concerned with being blown out of the sky, than your vague b/w torso being seen by someone who doesn't give a shit & will see a million more just like it every week. Why is this country CONSTANTLY bending over backwards to accommodate these people?!

"These people"? Who are you referring to? Muslims? Middle Eastern-looking people? People with beards? Maybe we agree and I'm missing your overall point due to a shittily worded ending sentence, but I think that there's a huge difference between behavioral profiling and racial profiling. The Israeli security forces do behavioral profiling. The difference is, when white christian people are terrorists, I.E. Timmothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols, etc., nobody wants to profile white christian males. Once you start employing policies where behavior is automatically assigned to different ethnic groups, you've actually made the problem worse. If they can supposedly orchestrate 911, you can find a martyr who looks European and isn't wearing a beard and turban.
