Ann Coulter’s take on Homeland Security: Right on the Money

Colter

This week Ann Coulter took a pretty hard swing at Homeland Security in her column over the failed terrorist attack in Detroit on Christmas Day.   Yet she made an extremely solid point “The government refuses to perform the only possibly effective security check — search Muslims — so instead it harasses infinitely compliant Americans. Will that help avert a terrorist attack? No, but the Americans don’t complain.”

Being someone who spends a lot of time in airports I have to agree with Ann on this one.   I have gotten in fights with TSA agents over taking off military dogtags and exchanged jabs with them over the inconvenience of being one of those randomly selected individuals for a more detailed search.

We as a a nation are stumbling over ourselves to not do what we all really know we should do; select Middle Eastern men traveling alone, who pay for their tickets with cash and have no luggage.   That is not profiling – profiling is when you only use the variable of nationality/physical appearance.   When one includes the other variables it cannot be considered profiling – it is simply doing what every History tells their students – learn from history’s mistakes so as not to repeat them.

  1. Hi Antoinette,
    I am not100% sure what you are asking. If you are asking where I found the quote from Ann Coulter, I have the link to her column included in the blog post above.

    Otherwise, I am not sure what you mean by “the suggestions to create” … Will be happy to help, just need some clarification.

    Thanks!
