THE GREAT STATE of Arizona is in trouble again. The ACLU says police profiled a couple of Latino dudes. Well, duh, I say. That’s smart. Keep it up!
Whenever someone is accused of profiling, they invariably deny it. This is a poor reply. The proper response is yes, I profile. It makes sense. It is an effective law-enforcement tool.
I touched on this matter hereabouts a couple of years ago, so I will not repeat myself. Click here if you want a fuller explanation of the perfect sense of profiling.
That the PC Legions have effectively gagged all conversation about the value of profiling is sad, pathetic and dangerous. They are a terror group. Just ask the former CEO of Firefox who contributed $1,000 to support traditional marriage in California in 2008,* booted from his job last week for the sin.
It’s lamentable that the PC Brown Shirts (no pun intended) have such an innocuous name. Politically correct. Sounds perfectly reasonable, something that might appeal to any end of the belief spectrum. Everybody wants to be correct, and most of us are convinced we are. The PC name is a sweet deception.
What we actually have is a Gestapo, a Stasi, a KGB, a Red Guard in miniature, still in sour-faced, angry, youth mode, having yet to attain adulthood. This Movement is now running America.
It is made up of two sectors:
1. Belligerent Leftists. This is the smaller of the two groups, but their anger and sense of total righteousness drives the Movement and makes it dangerous. They abound on campus.
2. The Pawns. This more numerous segment consists of people across society who are poorly informed (no sense of history or human nature) and basically aren’t paying attention. But supporting “the oppressed” sounds nice to them and fair. They voted for Barry not once but twice.
These are the sort of people who, when Dachau was liberated in 1945, lived in a nearby town and who claimed they had no idea what was happening behind the razor wire down the road. And many were telling the truth because they weren’t paying attention, didn’t care.
Currently, disobeying edicts of the Politically Correct Brown Shirts will only get you fired from your job and often shunned from society, depending on where you live and work. You won’t be shot or gassed just yet.
The Movement hasn’t reached adulthood. But it’s working out, popping vitamins.
It’s still pre-1932.
One of the loudest platoons of Sector No. 1 are gay activists who will sue your pants off if you won’t bake their wedding cakes or photograph their Rainbow events. It can get uglier if you criticize their marriages. This “difference of opinion” is what put Firefox’s CEO out on the street. Unacceptable ideas.
Interestingly, journalist Andrew Sullivan, quite gay and liberal, said this about the Firefox case in a post titled “The Hounding of a Heretic” on the popular blog The Daily Dish:
The whole episode disgusts me – as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society. If this is the gay rights movement today – hounding our opponents with a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else – then count me out. If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than the anti-gay bullies who came before us.
Gay bullies are PC Brown Shirts, but so are other permanently aggrieved segments of spoiled America. Many are minorities because it’s attractive to be aggrieved if you’re a minority. It can also be convenient and profitable. (See Al Sharpton.) But many in Sector No. 1 are well-off, white, belligerent Leftists.
And their willing pawns live their lives, not noticing the razor wire growing higher just up the road.
