Fox News Airs Suggestion for 'Muslim-Only' Airport Line

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eat-th...-_e_27366.html




Yesterday on Fox News' "Dayside," conservative radio host Mike Gallagher proposed that airports institute a "Muslims only" line for airport travelers during a segment Tuesday on racial profiling. Meta, that. From Newshounds, who "watch FOX so you don't have to":
"Dayside" co-host Juliet Huddy set up the debate by noting that all terrorists have been Muslim extremists, and Jerrick claimed that some people oppose racial profiling as "politically incorrect."

"It's not just a matter of political correctness, please," responded [constitutional lawyer Michael] Gross. "It's illegal, it's unconstitutional, unethical, immoral, it shouldn't be done. We do not in this country prejudge a person based upon their race, creed, color, country of national origin and it's wrong to do so and it addition it's not effective. It doesn't work. It actually perpetuates the problem. That is, it separates us."

Gallagher responded that Gross's statements were "absolutely absurd" and claimed that the Traffic Safety Administration is aggressively targeting uniformed members of the military. "Let's have a Muslim-only line," Gallagher said, as Gross started to talk.

Jerrick asked Gallagher to repeat what he said.

"It's time to have a Muslims check-point line in America's airports and have Muslims be scrutinized. You better believe it, it's time," Gallagher said, garnering tepid audience applause.

According to the Newshounds account, despite Gross' clarification above, the debate was framed as a "political correctness" issue rather than one of unconstitutionality.

I thought Blacks Only and Whites Only signs were things of the past.

But you can count of FOX to bring them back.

I would also demand a Fox news workers airport line, just incase I have to sit next to one of those rambling jerks on the plane.

But then all Al Qaeda would do is recruit American terrorists. Hell its already happening

Its pretty clear that the root of terrorism is in the Middle East though.

You think so? Tell that to the people who were bombed in the 60s while marching for their rights or the Oklahoma City victims.

Att the very beginning of the AIDS epidemic, some right wing coservatives flirted with the idea of putting all homosexual men in quarantine.

Also, thanks for pointing out all the radical leftist crap sprouted on CNN and not singling Fox News out for doing something that every network does.

Can you seriously say with a straight face that terrorism isn't concentrated in the Middle-East?

Honestly(and seriously), I'm not trying to downplay the terrible situation with what's going on here; however, there are other acts of terrorism that are going on in the world and that have been perpetrated on Americans by other Americans. The Mid-East is not the only place who supplies terrorists, regardless of what we hear on television.
