King endorses ethnic profilingOK, Mr. King, let's take that to its logical outcome, shall we?

WASHINGTON -- Declaring that airport screeners shouldn't be hampered by "political correctness," House Homeland Security Chairman Peter King has endorsed requiring people of "Middle Eastern and South Asian" descent to undergo additional security checks because of their ethnicity and religion.
Discussing the recent revelation of an alleged plot in England to blow up U.S.-bound airliners, the Seaford Republican said yesterday that, "if the threat is coming from a particular group, I can understand why it would make sense to single them out for further questioning."
Mr. King...that's an...Irish name, is it not? OK, Mr. King, the Irish Republican Army is a terrorist group. It has bombed in London, just like Al Qaeda operatives and sympathizers did.
So by your logic, all Irishmen, including yourself, should be singled out for additional security checks. I can't wait to see the looks you'll get from Ted Kennedy at Dulles as his fleshy mounds are poked and prodded and wanded.
Now, I imagine this might stir up a bit of resentment amongst some of your constituents, Long Island being a den of the Irish, legal and illegal immigrants and second-, third-, and even fourth-generation.
My god, but do you people BREED or what?!? You breed possible terrorists each and every day, like rabbits! Perhaps we should start surveilling the hospitals? Oh wait, many nurses are Irish. Maybe there's a grand conspiracy to kill Americans, real white Anglo-Saxon Protestant Americans of ENGLISH descent, one at a time, eh? Maybe we should make sure that all Irish nurses are forced to quit and say, pick potatoes, huh?
Why, it would be exhausting work, tracking all the IRA terrorists among us! We'd need to stop in at our local tavern to have a beer somewhere along the way.
Oops, that bartender...he looks....you know....Irish!!!!! Let's find a bar with a good Italian manning it, or better yet, some Jew...
Do you see where I'm going with this, idjit? Stop it. We haven't had a terror attack since 9/11 on our soil, and we wouldn't even have had that under President Gore, or at least if Bush had bothered to do something with the August 6th PDB. Focus on the problem, not a solution to a problem that scares you unnecessarily.
