Denial of Reality-One of the Five Pillars of Secular Humanism

Recently, I wrote a piece called Suspicious Terrorist Activity Detected in Seattle. For some on the unhinged side of politics, the reaction I got was not of concern for the safety of the youth, and those who work at the King County Juvenile Court, or that even Seattle IS A TARGET on the terrorist's radar screen. Nope, the looney leftists got their panties in a bunch because I profiled! Yep, profiled. I practice discrimination and I make value judgments.

1. Actually, I didn't get my panties in a bunch as much as I laughed my ass off at how freaking stupid you are.

The guy walked into the room, scanned the room looking for someone. He couldn't find the person he was looking for, so he pulled out his cell phone, then left to make a phone call.

There are tens of thousands of people from the Middle East who live and work in Seattle. The overwhelmingly majority of them are good people, just as is true for any subset of our population. The way you treated this guy as a suspect from the first second you saw him was embarrassing.

2. Gosh you're right, "thehim". There have been no instances of Muslim terrorism in the world for perhaps the past hour. No reason at all to be suspicious of Muslims. None whatsoever.

Reminds me of observing a Muslim "peace march" last year. Some of the marchers carried signs that read "Israel=Katrina" or ones that bore language supporting Hamas. The leftist press in Seattle obediently failed to mention these marchers. What a surprise.

3. Ann Coulter says, "Not all muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are muslims." Given the number of muslims in the world and the number of terrorist acts that have been committed, I'd say it's safe to say that the vast majority of muslims have no inclination toward violence whatsoever.

Profiling is much, much more than just race-based. Conservatives agree that race can be a part of it, but suspicious behavior is more important.

Using a cell phone to make a phone call or send a text message is not suspicious behavior.

Also, why would a terrorist target a jail? To kill criminals?
