Dear God, is everyone in power in this nation a complete buffoon?
Less than a week after Washington Democratic Rep. Jim McDermott wrote a letter to the FBI about the “Faces of Global Terrorism” ad he found to be racist, the ad is being taken down, the Seattle Times reports.
McDermott had written that the Puget Sound Joint Terrorism Task Force’s “ad featuring sixteen photos of wanted terrorists is not only offensive to Muslims and ethnic minorities, but it encourages racial and religious profiling.”
The congressman, as well Jeff Siddiqui, the founder of American Muslims of Puget Sound, are concerned that all sixteen terrorists featured have connections to Islam.
“When you start saying that this is the face of terrorism, you are really stigmatizing a whole group of people,” McDermott said.
Siddiqui added that the ad “is affecting all kinds of people who have no experience with Muslims, who look at it and say, ‘Oh, Muslims are the face of global terrorism.’”
Only two of the FBI’s 32 “Most Wanted Terrorists” do not have connections to Islam according to the FBI.
Good Freaking Grief. The people on the ad are TERRORISTS! Are we so deep in the “sensitivity” game that we are going to NOT show photos of evil people now? We have lost it folks, we have lost our grip on reality, and common sense? Nowhere to be found
