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
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
“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
“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,”
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,”
News. “Looking for Muslims for participation in Muslim jihad is not
playing the odds. It is following an ironclad tautology,” said Faso, a
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
“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
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.
