Profiles Toward a New Dachau

In 2003, the last time I ventured on a commercial flight, a renta-snoop tested and re-tested my carry-on bag, claiming his machine detected explosives. In fact, as it turns out, years before, I’d carried prescription drugs in the bag and this was what the machine detected, unable to tell the difference.

Now we are told a “West Virginia airport terminal was evacuated Thursday after two bottles of liquid found in a woman’s carry-on luggage twice tested positive for explosive residues, a Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman” told the Associated Press.

Of course, considering the racist element of the current programmed hysteria, chances are good an airport would not be evacuated if I encountered a repeat performance.

“Airport manager Larry Salyers said he was told the 28-year-old woman was originally from Pakistan but had moved to Huntington from Jackson, Michigan. He did not know how long she had lived in Huntington.” Sadly, this woman’s life will likely be destroyed, as all “darkies” (or “golliwogs”), as Brit colonialists once dismissively called the people of the East, are now suspect.

“Declaring that airport screeners shouldn’t be hampered by ‘political correctness,’ House Homeland Security Chairman Peter King has endorsed requiring people of ‘Middle Eastern and South Asian’ descent to undergo additional security checks because of their ethnicity and religion,” reports Newsday.

This standard does not apply to white people, or even white people accused of terrorism, only “darkies” or “wogs,” who are naturally, by ethnicity and religious persuasion alone, considered potential terrorists.

It should be noted that Mr. King “has been one of the strongest and most outspoken supporters of the Irish Republican Army,” according to Wikipedia. “During negotiations in 1998, King carried messages between the IRA and the British government. King was instrumental in convincing President Bill Clinton to grant a visa to Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams in 1994.” Regardless of what you may or may not think of Sinn Fein or Adams, it is obvious King holds double standards when it comes to the skin color of possible terrorists, or rather people resisting foreign domination and occupation.

In fact, racial profiling, at odds with the letter and spirit of the Constitution (namely probable cause, a requirement of the Fourth Amendment), now plays well as a political football in elections. “While not saying he supports racial profiling, [New York] Republican candidate for governor John Faso said political correctness shouldn’t stand in the way of America’s security,” reports NY1 News. “Looking for Muslims for participation in Muslim jihad is not playing the odds. It is following an ironclad tautology,” said Faso, a Pataki flunky.

Indeed, it is the tautology, or redundancy, of racism, now once again oozing like a corrosive acid into the political landscape, and hacks such as Faso quite naturally brush off criticism as “political correctness,” a bugaboo for “conservative” (i.e., reactionary) politicos.

Meanwhile, folks of Middle and South Asian heritage, according to Fox News loudmouth Bill O’Reilly, should be considered criminals first and foremost, according to News Hounds.

“We’re not at war with Granny Frickett. We’re at war with Muslim fanatics,” averred O’Reilly (see a video clip). Granny Frickett is apparently a reference to senior citizen Maudie Frickett, a stand-up creation of comic Jonathan Winters, who naturally should not be suspect, as the fictional personage is a white person.

On the other hand, if we are to believe O’Reilly, our nation is at war with Frickett’s counterpart, an elderly South Asian woman.

“Profiling must begin now,” Bill demanded in his inimitable, if nauseating way, adding that racist profiling is our “patriotic duty,” not that he would be singled out, as his ancestors were a hundred and fifty years ago for the crime of Irish blood. No doubt O’Reilly recalls nothing of history and the English Penal Laws and the racial profiling of Victorian England, when the Irish were designated as “human chimpanzees.”

Incidentally, it is curious O’Reilly would work Jonathan Winters into his racist routine, as Winters descended from Valentine Winters, founder of the Winters National Bank in Dayton, now part of JPMorgan Chase. Indeed, the progeny of banksters will never be profiled, or asked to take off their shoes at the airport, as they are a class or two above the rest of us, commoners all.

Of course, as racial profiling is an inexact science at best, subject to “politically correct” lawsuits, and there are fish of different stripe to snag in this emergent police state dragnet, we are told a more effective approach is to ferret out people who “are behaving suspiciously,” whatever that means exactly.

According to the Times Online, the “system would be much more sophisticated than simply picking out young men of Asian appearance,” although it may be assumed with a reasonable degree of accuracy this “technique” would simply be conflated with good old fashioned profiling based on skin pigmentation. It should be noted that the above “science” of psychological profiling was pioneered by the racist settler state of Israel, long in the tooth when it comes to harassing and humiliating Palestinian “darkies.” But then, I suppose, such might be expected from a culture purportedly following Deuteronomic law mandating the death penalty for a “recalcitrant” son who refuses to obey. In America, many a Christian Zionist believes likewise hogwash.

Finally, if you believe profiling will remain in the confine of the local airport, you have another thing coming. Bush’s airport Gestapo zones will eventually fan out across the land, from train stops to freeway on and off ramps, to checkpoints at the end of your street.

In addition to Arabs, South Asians, and Muslims, the neocon fascist police state apparatus, gaining momentum with every fake terrorist incident, will target in addition those of us who have the temerity to question what our rulers have in mind for us, from interminable war to a complete dissolution of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

In 1933, Hitler’s Schutzstaffel, or SS Gestapo, established Dachau for political opponents to the regime, described as “the first concentration camp for political prisoners” by Heinrich Himmler.

Call it paranoid, but the recent $385 million contract issuing from the Ministry of Homeland Security to the Halliburton subsidiary KBR to build detention camps, allegedly for “an emergency influx of immigrants,” is a step in the direction of a new Dachau.
