Chris Wysocki looks at TSA, airport security, and political correctness. But mostly political correctness
Excuse me, is that a bomb in your burqa? Please proceed directly to your gate.
According to Judicial Watch, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napalitano is actually considering waving airport pat downs for Muslim women who consider them offensive.
We mustn’t offend the Muslims!
The demand came last week from the politically-connected Muslim rights organization that serves as the U.S. front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. Calling the searches “invasive” and “humiliating,” the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) advises Muslim women wearing religious head covers known as hijabs to reject full-body checks before boarding planes.
Those who are selected for the secondary screenings should remind Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers that they are only supposed to pat down the head and neck and that they should not subject Muslim women to a full-body or partial body pat-down, according to CAIR’s advisory.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is actually considering exempting Muslims as per CAIR’s demands. Madame Secretary confirmed this week that there will be “adjustments” and “more to come” on the issue of Muslim women in hijabs undergoing airport security pat-downs.
Aha. CAIR is dirty, and certainly does not have America’s best interest at heart. So, why would Janet Napolitano ever consider caving to this group? Well because, Napolitano is dumber than a tree stump for one thing. Recall she said our border with Mexico is more secure now than ever before. And she sees people like Chris, and myself as more dangerous that the terrorists CAIR supports behind the scenes. Oh, and of course as Ed pointed a couple of days ago, and as Chris notes, we all know that those darned wheel-chair bound toddlers are the real menace
But toddlers in wheelchairs? TSA makes them do the Full Monty, right out in the open. Because when it comes to hijacking planes, everyone knows just how dangerous those toddlers really are.
What a sick joke! What a sad state! Is there no common sense at all anymore? Or has it been sacrificed on the altar of Political Correctness?
