From The Gathering Storm

The Dems are ready to flex their appeasement.

Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is co-sponsoring the “End Racial Profiling Act”. The proposed bill is said to have been prompted by the recent removal of six Muslim imams, who are reported to have acted in a decidedly provocative manner, from a US Airways’ flight. The other co-sponsor of the bill is Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) who is also preparing documents to lead to Articles of Impeachment against President Bush. Pelosi and Conyers are calling for the end of all racial profiling, additional severe limits placed on the Patriot Act and the implementation of broad-based US citizenship for illegal immigrants.

Ms. Pelosi. The imams were not pulled form the plane because of their race. They were pulled from the plane because of the following:

  • Witnesses said three of the imams were praying loudly in the concourse and repeatedly shouted “Allah” when passengers were called for boarding US Airways Flight 300 to Phoenix.
  • Passengers and flight attendants told law-enforcement officials the imams switched from their assigned seats to a pattern associated with the September 11 terrorist attacks and also found in probes of U.S. security since the attacks — two in the front row first-class, two in the middle of the plane on the exit aisle and two in the rear of the cabin. “That would alarm me,” said a federal air marshal who asked to remain anonymous. “They now control all of the entry and exit routes to the plane.”
  • Three of the men asked for seat-belt extenders, although two flight attendants told police the men were not oversized.
  • Rather than attach the extensions, the men placed the straps and buckles on the cabin floor, the flight attendant said.
  • Witnesses told law enforcement that the men spoke in Arabic and English, criticizing the war in Iraq and President Bush, and talking about al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.
  • The imams who claimed two first-class seats said their tickets were upgraded. The gate agent told police that when the imams asked to be upgraded, they were told no such seats were available. Nevertheless, the two men were seated in first class when removed.
  • A flight attendant said one of the men made two trips to the rear of the plane to talk to the imam during boarding, and again when the flight was delayed because of their behavior.

None of this behavior has to do with ethnicity. They were not racially profiled. They were profiled because of their suspicious and unwarranted behavior. If the men were black, brown, yellow, green or purple in color and behaved in this suspicious manner, they would have been pulled from the plane, too. Ms. Pelosi, your blatant ignorance of what is at stake here for the sake of serving your god of political correctness, will endanger not only the flying public but the families of all Americans with your ‘anti-racial’ bill.

These imams were practicing neither ethnic behavior nor religious behavior. They were practicing an ideological behavior, an ideology that they have sworn to advance in this country with the goal of intimidating, infiltrating and creating misinformation to advance their Islamist agenda. It’s time you and your fellow Dems wake up to this dangerous fact.
